Joel Osteen Devotional 30th December 2021 | Today’s Word for Thursday
Topic: A Stubborn Faith
Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. (Ephesians 6:13, ESV)
Joel Osteen Daily Devotional | 30 December 2021 Message
When you’ve done your best to get well but it’s not changing, when you’ve treated people with kindness who aren’t being kind to you, when you’ve worked hard but the promotion fell through, what do you do? Get discouraged, think it’s not going to happen, and give up? No, just stand firm. To be standing is to be trusting God, knowing that He’s in control. When you’re standing, you’re not frustrated by what’s not happening. You’re not complaining about how long it’s taking. You’re not moved by what the medical report says or by how your child is acting. You’re at rest and in peace. You know that what God started, He’s going to finish.
God is looking for stubborn faith. You keep believing, keep thanking God, and keep being your best. Giving up is not an option; quitting is not in your mindset. You know that what God promised you is on the way. No matter what comes against you and isn’t changing, just keep standing until you see what God promised come to pass.
A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that You have provided me with Your armor to be able to withstand the difficult times. Thank You that You only ask me to take my stand, trusting in You through it all. I want my faith to be stubborn and never allow giving up to be an option. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
