Joel Osteen Devotional 17th May 2020 – NOT ONE SECONDS LATE
TOPIC: NOT ONE SECOND LATE
READING: Whoever wants to embrace life and see the day fill up with good, here’s what you do: Say nothing evil or hurtful. – 1 Peter 3:10, MSG
THE MESSAGE: In the book of 2 Samuel, the prophet Nathan reminded David of the ways he had experienced God’s goodness, favor, protection, and provision down through the years. Then God added this powerful statement: “If it had not been enough, I would have given you much, much more.” In other words, “David, looking back over your life, if you ever needed more wisdom, more favor, more protection, or more finance, I would have given it to you.”
That tells me that the moment something begins to stop God’s plan for your life is the moment God will intervene. The moment you need a new friend, the moment you need a good break, the moment you need an idea, it will show up. So if it hasn’t happened yet, don’t be discouraged, thinking that it’s never going to work out. If it hasn’t happened, you haven’t needed it. When you need it, it won’t be one second late.
A Prayer for today
Father, thank You for the amazing, “much, much more” promise that You made to David and to me as well. Thank You that I have everything I need right now to fulfill my destiny. I believe that You are on the throne and nothing I need will be a minute late. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
