Be All That You Can See
By Joel Osteen

God created us as visual beings. He is a creative God, and He’s given us the ability to create as well. It all starts with what you see in your mind’s eye. Everyone has their own mental picture of the way they see themselves, their family and their future. This picture determines what kind of life you live. If you have an image of success, victory, health, happiness and abundance, you will naturally gravitate toward that. But if you have an image of lack, defeat and mediocrity, that negative mental picture will keep you from God’s best.

Remember, if you’re going to be successful, you have to first see yourself as successful — the way God sees you. According to your faith, it will be done to you.

Faith comes by hearing the Word. That’s why it’s so important to take time every day to study and meditate on God’s promises. Let His truth sink down deeply into your heart. Open your eyes of faith so you can see yourself rising higher. Choose to have a vision of victory and be all that you can see!

Prayer:
Father God, I pray today that You would open the eyes of my heart and reveal Yourself to me. Show me Your ways. Show me Your love. Help me to see myself the way You see me so that I can be all that You have created me to be in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Scripture:
Then He touched their eyes, saying, “According to your faith let it be to you.” (Matthew 9:29 NKJV)

Growth Under Attack

Some attacks are easier to forgive than others, but regardless, all must be forgiven. Why? Because we have been forgiven. Even when it’s hardest to forgive, we must. It’s love that will change the world..”Love one another as I have loved you.” In order to truly love, we must forgive.

It’s easier said than done, but we can do it.

Blessings and love to you all,

Sarah

Today’s devo selection

About keeping the faith in the face of Satan’s attack…

Acts 7:59 While they were stoning him, Stephen prayed, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.” 60 Then he fell on his knees and cried out, “Lord, do not hold this sin against them.” When he had said this, he fell asleep. (NIV)

Stephen knew he was dying. Yet even in his last moment of life, with his last breath, Stephen asked for the forgiveness of those who were killing him. You have the same mighty spiritual power within you Stephen had. Your witness in life or even in your last breath can change lives like Stephen’s witness has done for two thousand years. You might not be a famous person. You might consider yourself a “nobody.” However, in God’s eyes you are precious. Until you take your last breath, it is God’s will the evil in your world should be defeated with His love and with His consuming grace. As Christ’s witness, show the world how evil can be defeated with the same love and forgiving grace you keep within your heart.
