Joel Osteen on The Power of Believing
Today's Joel Osteen television broadcast is titled The Power of Believing. The audio of the message is included in the pdf so you can listen to the message as well as read my notes.
If you believe....
Numerous times in the Bible we are told that of we only believe then God will fulfill His promises. It starts with believing. There is incrredible power in belief.
Eph 1:19and his incomparably great power for us who believe.
Jesus mother Mary responded to the angel of the Lord announcing that she would give birth to Jesus by believing in the promise from God she had just received.
We can all come up with excuses about why things will not work out. We should use the words 'Lord, I believe' in response to God's promises.
Luke 8:50Hearing this, Jesus said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed.”
Get your mind going in the right direction by starting to believe God's promises.
God can resurrect anything you think is dead.
Lean not on your own understanding.
Nothing happens until you believe!
I Chronicles 28:28
When you believe, God puts the right people into your life.
God is more than just our Saviour!
Ephesians 3:20Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us
God gives beauty for ashes
Isaiah 3:10Tell the righteous it will be well with them, for they will enjoy the fruit of their deeds.
It shall be well with you!
God works behind the scenes, especially when you see nothing happening.
Do not be moved by how you feel or what you see, instead believe what God has said.
After Lazarus died, Martha and Mary were upset that Jesus took 4 days to arrive to help. All along however, God had been planning a resurrection instead of a healing.
Even now, God can turn any situation around.
Do not be intimidated by your challenges.
You will see God's goodness.
