Even in unfair treatment and disappointments, you can trust God to be your vindicator and to work out His plan for your life. As you do, you’ll not only feel heaviness lift off of you, but you’ll begin to dream again. Get ready to see the new things He has in store!
Sometimes before a promise comes to pass, we must go through a season of silence. You may not see anything changing, but God is working behind the scenes. Believe that what He started in your life, He will finish!
Sometimes, even though we did our best, the door we were waiting for didn’t open. Stay encouraged; those closed doors are not permanent. God is your doorkeeper. Closed doors cannot keep you from what He has for you!
Life is too short to hold on to pain and past hurts. Have you been holding on to an offense that you need to let go of today? Let Joel show you how to turn your hurt over to God, and let Him and be your vindicator. It’s human nature to want to make your wrongs right, but God wants you to bless your enemies.
Blessing your enemy is a test of your character. The sooner you learn to bless your enemies and be good to people that have not been good to you, the more room you give God to work in your life.
Are you relying on what others say or don’t say for your value? Are you frustrated today because you don’t have the support from others around you?
One of the greatest lessons in life is to learn that your true value does not come from people; it comes from Almighty God. Yet many people today rely on the complements, encouragement and approval of others to feel good about themselves and stay motivated.
Paul said in Philippians 4:13, “I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency.” Let Joel show you who you are in Christ and how to go to Him for your value and self-worth. As you apply these biblical principles, not only will you live a more peaceful life, but your relationships will improve, too!
God has prepared promises for us, but sometimes we don’t see them because we aren’t calling them in. Pay attention to what you are declaring. You have to call in the victory, the healing, the abundance.
There are times in all of our lives when God will ask us to step out in faith. We don’t understand it. We can’t see how a situation is going to work out, but in the midst of not knowing, we can decide to trust Him. These times are necessary in order for our faith to be matured. Being comfortable in the unknown is a powerful act of trust.
You may feel stuck today or think that it’s just another year of doing the same thing. But Joel wants to show you how God has some I never dreamed blessings in store for you where God shows up and exceeds your expectations.
Take a journey through the Scriptures and see how God had sudden blessings that instantly changed lives. You’ll be inspired to have faith again for the goodness of God in your life to exceed your expectations! We think ordinary, but God thinks extraordinary. What He has planned for you is bigger, more rewarding, more fulfilling than you’ve dreamed. Paul said in Ephesians 3:20, “God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all you can ask or think.” God wants to do a new thing in you this year! It’s time to believe again.
