Joel Osteen’s message this morning reminded me to rid myself of ‘unforgiveness’ ~ something that I have been praying on for nearly 4 years ~ I replay in my mind those who wronged my mother, in life and death & it angers me while causing extreme pain…
Unforgiveness is blocking my blessings.
I want to s/o my sister (Dereth) & ask God to unharden her heart ~ our faith should ‘never’ be placed in ‘people’ because they will fail us every time ~ God’s got us ~ trust in Him! Didn’t Miss Pat just pour into you the other day?! If she, through her challenges can stand strong in God, than who are we to do just the opposite?!
Whatever He Says
When Jesus performed His first miracle, He was at a wedding celebration. His mother knew that in order to see His power at work, there was one key: “Whatever He says, do it.” It’s the same way with us today. Our obedience opens the door to see His power manifest in our lives. Scripture says, “If we are willing and obedient, we will eat the good of the land.” In other words, we’ll experience God’s abundant blessing when we follow His commands.
Sometimes, we can be so focused on one thing we are believing for that we overlook simple obedience in other areas. For example, you may need a financial miracle. Maybe you’re tithing and sowing like you should, but are you holding unforgiveness toward someone? That can block the blessing. Is there anything else you know in your heart you need to do?
Today, ask the Lord to search your mind and heart. Don’t let anything block His power. Whatever He says, do it and watch that obedience open the door to His blessing in every area of your life! — Joel Osteen
