Today's Word From Joel And Victoria Osteen - Breaking Strongholds

Breaking Strongholds
“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds.”
(2 Corinthians 10:4, NKJV)
TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
Scripture tells us that there is a battle going on in our minds. Our thoughts dictate our actions. That’s why the enemy will do everything he can to get you thinking in the wrong direction. Sometimes, it’s not our own thoughts that are holding us back; sometimes it’s that we’ve believed the negative things that other people have spoken over us. Those words are like seeds. If you dwell on them long enough, they’ll take root and become a reality.
In life, there will always be people telling you what cannot be done, speaking negative things. Too often we latch on to those negative words and develop what the scripture calls a “stronghold.” That’s a wrong thought or action that keeps us from God’s best. The way you break those negative strongholds is by rejecting the lie, forgiving the person, and embracing the truth of God’s Word. In other words, you have to choose to delete that negative file in your mind.
Today, why don’t you take inventory of your thought life? Ask yourself, “Where did these thoughts come from? Do they line up with what God says about me?” Break the negative strongholds and embrace God’s truth so you can be all that God has called you to be!
Father, today I choose to reject negative thoughts. I choose to reject lies from the past. I break every stronghold through the power of Your Word and embrace Your truth which sets me free in Jesus’ name. Amen.

— Joel and Victoria Osteen

Closer Thank You Think - Today's Word From Joel And Victoria Osteen

Closer Than You Think
“Do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward.”
(Hebrews 10:35, NKJV)
TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
Have you been praying and believing for something that’s taking longer than you thought? Many times, people can miss God’s best simply because they give up before they see their answer come. Don’t let that be you! Be encouraged today, your answer is closer than you think. If it seems like things are getting more difficult, remember, when the intensity heats up, that means you are closer to your victory. It always seems darkest just before the dawn appears.
Friend, remember, you serve a faithful God. Know that He is working behind the scenes on your behalf. Don’t cast away your confidence today because your reward is coming. And just like a new mother forgets about her labor pain when she is finally holding her newborn, you’ll forget about your struggle when you are holding your promise.
While you are waiting, keep an attitude of faith and expectancy. Wake up every morning and declare, ≴I’ve come too far to give up now. My due season is coming. I will reap my harvest.” Stay in faith and be on the lookout because He has promised you victory, and it’s closer than you think!
Father in heaven, today I stand believing that You are working behind the scenes on my behalf. Give me Your strength to continue believing until I see Your promises fulfilled in my life in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Reprogram Your Mind - Today's Word From Joel Osteen

Reprogram Your Mind
“Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind...”
(Romans 12:2, AMP)
TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
Many people today don’t realize that the reason they’re not happy, the reason they’re not enjoying life is simply because they’ve trained their minds in the wrong direction. They’ve programmed their minds to worry. They’ve programmed their minds to complain. They’ve programmed their minds to see the negative. But just as we can train our mind to focus on the negative, we can also reprogram our minds to focus on the positive. It all depends on what you meditate on.
When we meditate on the Word of God, we reprogram our minds. When we meditate on God’s goodness, we are developing a right mindset. When we choose to be grateful and focus on what’s right rather than what’s wrong, we are choosing a positive attitude. This doesn’t happen automatically; you have to discipline yourself to focus on the right things. You have to make a conscious effort to spend time in the Word of God every single day until a habit is formed.
I believe that as you honor God with your time, He’ll multiply it back to you. As you stay faithful and focused on Him, He will direct your steps, and you will embrace the blessing and victory He has in store for you!
Father in heaven, today I surrender my thoughts and mind to You. Help me retrain my thoughts so that they are in line with Your will for my life. I choose to have a positive attitude of faith and expectancy and thank You for empowering me to enjoy the good life You have for me in Jesus’ name. Amen.
— Joel and Victoria Osteen

Being Thankful

If you're like me, you may spend far too much time trying to fix your perceived imperfections rather than being truly grateful for what is right in your life. I realize that to attract good things into my life I need to be better about stating what is already good.  God tells us that if we ask, that we receive.  However, He also tells us that we are to praise Him in thanksgiving.  So today I'm listing five things that I'm thankful for.

  1. I have freedom of expression.
  2. I am blessed with a well spring of creativity.
  3. God blessed my husband with a new job since the factory he loved is closing.
  4. The cattle here on the farm are doing well.
  5. I had a nice crispy salad for lunch today.

What are you thankful for today?  Will you share it with us?  Lets spread some positivity.

Thanks for reading.

Is your bombarding diet of media affecting your attitude?

I have found over the years, that reading material that is positive and thought provoking has a very positive effect on our attitude. It is certainly more beneficial than reading or listening to some tragedy. 

~ Bob Proctor

I happen to agree wholeheartedly with the above sentiment. 

My reading and viewing habits have changed over the years.  I used to love to read horror novels, go to horror movies and have a 24 hour news channel on all the time. I was feeding my brain a constant stream of negativity.  It's no wonder I walked around sad, depressed and not liking myself. 

In recent years, I've gravitated toward self-help and spiritual books.  I've turned off the 24 hour news channel. No longer do I go to horror movies.  I've let that go.  Without realizing it, I began feeling and acting more positively.

Now, don't misunderstand.  I don't pretend that the world is an utopian place.  I keep up on the current events of the day, and Lord knows, a lot of it is negative.  I hear the news and then I leave it alone.  I don't listen to the breaking news alert every five minutes.  It's upsetting to me to hear all the "experts" arguing over the hot topics of the day.  I say a prayer and let it go.

Everyday, I've made it a habit to end my day with some positive reading.  I love authors like Louise L Hay, Doreen Virtue and Marianne Williamson.   I'm planting seeds of positive thoughts in my mind before I lay down to rest.  I don't have the newsy stuff of the day playing over and over in my head.

Let's face it.  There are so many things we have no control over.  I believe that living life as a good example to others by spreading positivity is one of the best things I can do to help my community.  I don't absorb the negativity anymore, so therefore, I don't pass it along.

What do you think of Bob Proctor's quote?  Does it ring true for you?  Is your bombarding diet of media affecting your attitude?

Thanks for reading.
