Joel Osteen is wonderful. He is just what we all need these days. Up -beat and positive, his message can help us understand things in a simple but much deeper way, and how we can keep control over our situations that can be out of control. He helps give you the guts to fight and to be able to take it all on and win.....and even if you do lose, you still can win.
God Bless

thank you Joel

This is one of my favorite sermons by Joel Osteen!!! I have learnt how to see God's signs and recognize his favors!!! I had dsicovered Joel one frustrated morning in June 2009. Emense strugles and I needed a way!!! I needed a sign from God!!! I asked boldly for God's help!! God sent me Joel and the sermon that morning brought new joys to my heart and the strength and hope I needed to go forward!!! Two days after listening to this sermon (loved the sign from God with the leaf) and praying with Joel...I too Got a sign from God...I was walking down the street in the midst of a small crowd of people and suddenly a woman walks up to me and hands me a note that said "GOD LOVES YOU, AND HE HAS WONDERFUL PLANS FOR YOUR LIFE" AND along with the note a beautiful crucifix pendant (almost the length of my little finger) it was still in the gift package it came in!!!! I accepted it...the woman said nothing and she went away...she had just that one gift in her hand and chose me from the group of strangers. I know that was the hand of God!!! I am a child of the MOST HIGH GOD!!!! I love you Joel for you have inspired my life and helps me strenthen my faith!!!! YOU ARE ONE OF THE BLESSED FAVORS GOD HAS BLESSED ME WITH!!! I hope to meet you one day!!!

Thank you so much to Joel and Victoria and the huge effort they make to inspire us all in our daily lives. I have benefited greatly from Joel's fabulous book "It's Your Time". They have truly changed my life and I am so grateful to them. Thank God for great technology, as we are in Australia and this means we can still be blessed by awesome sermons etc... even on the other side of the world xxx.

Awesome!! Awesome! Empowering!!!

I had to just listen to this over and over because it is so empowering and God's heart concerning us ignites the power and love He has torward of us. This is blessed and anointed message. This is a message I am sharing with my children to empower them as well. This message needs to be heard over and over again! Glory to God. I honor Him for allowing Pastor Joel Osteen to bring this word to the people from God. I also shared this message with my pastor, family, friends, co-workers too.

  • Knowing You Are Loved - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Jun 24, 2018

    A lot of people live with a—I think He loves me—mentality when it comes to God's love for them, thinking His love is based on their performance.

    But God is not like people. People may love you conditionally, but God's love for you is unconditional. You don't have to earn God's love; He loves you just the way you are. There is no mistake great enough to cancel out God’s amazing love and His plans for your life.

    Let this message teach you about God’s amazing love for you. When you know God loves you, you’ll live life with more confidence and security, and you’ll become everything God created you to be!

  • Strengthen Your Inner Man - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, Jun 20, 2018

    Paul prayed for the Ephesians “that God would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man” (Ephesians 3:16). The inner man is strengthened by God through the Spirit. We have to take time; we have to find room in our busy lives to let the Spirit of God minister life to us, to be touched by the Word of God and the very presence of Almighty God because that’s what strengthens our inner man. We cannot neglect our inner man or we’ll be weak, undisciplined, and weary on the inside. Today I encourage you to develop your personal relationship with God on a daily basis. Make it a habit to renew and strengthen your inner man because that’s how your life will be transformed.

  • How Bad Do You Want It - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Jun 17, 2018

    God has placed His seeds of greatness in you. He has placed everything within you to fulfill every purpose He's placed inside of you. But James 2 teaches us that there is action we have to take on our part, that our faith without works is dead. Discover in this empowering message how we have to go after the things in our heart with an unrelenting passion. Learn about different heroes in the Bible who pressed past obstacles and found their healing and breakthroughs.

    Your will is one of the most powerful things you have. When you make up your mind that you're going to do something, and take the steps and do everything you can, God will breathe on your efforts and give you strength that goes beyond your natural ability.

  • Contentment Is a State of Mind - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, Jun 13, 2018

    Finding contentment is a goal we should strive for every day. A lot of people get confused about the concept of contentment because they think it means they have to settle for where they are. However, there's a huge difference between being content and being complacent. When you are content, you are satisfied; you're full. It's not that you aren't pursuing your goals or striving to reach new levels, you are just able to enjoy where you are on the way to where you are going.

  • Room Enough - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Jun 10, 2018

    Are you discouraged today because you’re facing a difficult battle? We all have things that come against us in life and encounter unfair people and situations. But just because you have opposition doesn’t mean you’re not in God’s will. God is in control, and He’s directing your steps. What’s meant for your harm, God is going to use to your advantage.

    Joel will show you how to stay encouraged and gain a fresh perspective of trials. Setbacks are setups in our lives for God to do something greater.With God on your side, you can rest assured that when adversity arises, a new level is on the way.

  • Hearing In Your Spirit - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Jun 03, 2018

    Just as we have physical ears, we have spiritual ears where God speaks to us.

    Many times, God will speak things that contradict what we see with our eyes.
    That’s why we have to walk by faith and not by sight.

    People may tell you that you’ll never get well, circumstances may look like you’ll never get out of debt, never meet the right person, or never accomplish your dreams. But if you listen with your spiritual ears, you’ll hear a voice saying, “Healing is coming. You will lend and not borrow. New doors are about to open.”

    In a drought, God will talk to you about rain. In lack, He’ll talk to you about abundance. When you feel insignificant, like you’ll never make anything out of your life, He’ll talk to you about greatness.

    When you get in agreement with God then you will become what He says about you.
    You will have what He says you’ll have!

  • You Are a Child of Promise - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, May 30, 2018

    The Bible speaks a lot about our words. Proverbs 18:21 says, “The tongue has the power of life and death.” And James wrote, “Look also at ships: although they are so large and are driven by fierce winds, they are turned by a very small rudder wherever the pilot desires. Even so the tongue is a little member and boasts great things” (James 3:4–5). He recognized that although our tongue is a very small part of our body, it directs the course of our life for victory or defeat even when we’re in the midst of stormy, negative situations. Too often when we get in difficult situations, we forget the power that we have in our tongue and where it can lead us.

    You have to be strong with your words of faith as well as being strong in your thoughts. And the best way to get your thoughts to line up is to release your words of faith. Words reinforce what you think. Make God bigger than anything else that you see.

  • Recognizing Your Value - Joel Osteen
    Sun, May 27, 2018

    Too often, we base our value on how somebody is treating us, how successful we are, or how perfectly we have lived our life. The problem is that all of those things can change. Joel wants to show you how your value doesn’t come from people or things; it comes from your Creator.

    You may feel average today, but 1 John 4:4 says, “You belong to God.” You are extremely valuable! Learn to recognize your value in who God made you to be and how He sees you. You are a child of the Most High God! This message will give you a fresh, new confidence in who God made you to be.

  • Express Gratitude Through Actions - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, May 23, 2018

    There is a principle in God’s Word that says, “Give, and it will be given to you” (Luke 6:38). “Whatever a man sows, that he will also reap” (Galatians 6:7). When you do something for someone else—take them to a doctor’s appointment, pick them up when their car is broken down, call them, cheer them up, do something that no one else can do for them—God’s going to do special things for you. When we go out and make someone else’s day, we’re saying, “God, thank You for making my day” because when you make someone else’s day, God will make your day. When God sees you blessing others, He blesses you, and there are no blessings to compare with the blessings of Almighty God.

    So make someone’s day, knowing that God is going to make your day.

  • Just One Good Break - Joel Osteen
    Sun, May 20, 2018

    You may have situations that don’t look like they’ll ever change, but God has already arranged good breaks in your future. All it takes is just one touch of God’s favor!

    Joel will show you how you can live from a place of peace and rest knowing that God is not only fighting your battles, but He’s lined up the exact situations you need in your life to bring you where you’re supposed to be. He has the right people that are going to help you already planned out. He has solutions to problems that you can’t even see right now.

    You don’t have to live life worried about how things will work out anymore because God has promised in Psalm 138:8 that He will work out His plan for your life. Instead, release your faith and trust Him. His plan is better than your plan!

  • Have a Compassionate Heart - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, May 16, 2018

    Compassion is powerful. Jesus didn’t just feel sorry for those in need. He didn’t say, “Oh well, that’s too bad.” No, His compassion moved Him to action. In the same way, 1 John 3:17 says about us, “If anyone…sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart of compassion against him, how can the love of God live in him?” We all have a heart of compassion that God wants to work through toward others, and it can either be open or shut. If it is shut off, God’s love cannot flow out of it, which I believe is the reason some of us are unhappy today. We’ve closed our heart of compassion. If we’re going to live the abundant life that God has given us, we need to stir up our heart of compassion and say, “God, open my heart and my eyes to see the people who need my love today.”

  • Manasseh is Coming - Joel Osteen
    Sun, May 13, 2018

    Do you feel forgotten today? Have you gone through situations that are so painful and hard to forget, you don’t know how you’ll ever feel light again?

    If there’s anyone who understands heartache and betrayal, it’s Joseph. He was betrayed by his brothers, thrown into a pit, and eventually sold into slavery. But all along, God had a plan for Joseph. After his trials, Joseph ended up being in charge of all Egypt. He was blessed in such a way that he said in Genesis 41:51 (AMP), “God has made me forget all my trouble and hardship.” He named his son Manasseh which means in Hebrew “causing to forget.”

    Like Joseph, God wants to bless you in such a way that you won’t remember the pain of the past. You may feel forgotten, but God hasn’t forgotten about you. He’s seen your heartache and has collected every tear you’ve shed. He’s going to turn your pain around in such a way that you’re overwhelmed with His goodness. God is going to cause you to forget!

  • Live the Resurrected Life - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, May 09, 2018

    We recently celebrated the resurrection of Jesus in an Easter service, and now I want to encourage you to not just celebrate His resurrection but live the resurrection life He came to give us. How do we live this resurrection life? We have to take hold of everything Jesus has given us through His death and resurrection. He took your sin and shame, everything that would ever try to come on you, and He paid your debt in full. “He has removed our sins as far from us as the east is from the west” (Psalm 103:12). We don’t have to walk in guilt and condemnation. We are free to go and live the resurrection life.

  • It's a Setup - Joel Osteen
    Sun, May 06, 2018

    Nothing has randomly happened in your life. Everything has been carefully orchestrated, even the good and the bad, the blessings and the disappointments. Even in times where we’ve failed and made mistakes, God has already planned how to restore us and get us back on course.

    God has ordered your steps. Your life is divinely orchestrated. Let Joel teach you how to keep moving forward even when you don’t understand. Stay in faith when people betray you. Do the right thing when the wrong thing is happening. Your time is coming. What God has ordained will come to pass! No person, situation, or thing can stop what God has ordained for your life!

  • Remove the Grave Clothes - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Apr 29, 2018

    God’s love for us is relentless, and His grace goes to the most unlikely places and people. But just as God used Jesus to raise Lazarus from the grave, God is counting on us to run after the hurting and to go after the broken.

    It’s easy to judge others, but underneath the dirt, the mess and bad decisions, there’s a son or a daughter of the Most High God. God is counting on us to represent His love and redemption to those in need. They may be bound on the outside, but like Lazarus, on the inside they’re a person of destiny. They just need someone to help remove the grave clothes. Will you be that person? Take time to make a difference in the lives of those who desperately need it. As you live life as a healer, lifter and a restorer, the seeds you sow will come back to you. You will rise higher and overcome your own obstacles!

  • Be Mindful of the Words You Speak - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, Apr 25, 2018

    Jesus said, “The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life” (John 6:63). When you get the Word of God in your mouth, you create a strong, spiritual life that will send you on the course to life. Your words will direct you beside still waters and take you to green pastures. They’ll lead you to refreshment for your soul. Let’s be very attentive to the words that we speak. Let’s remember our words are containers of power that can direct our course. We can prophesy our future.

  • Uncommon - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Apr 22, 2018

    God did not create you to be common. We are living in a day where the standards are being lowered, where it’s acceptable to compromise, take the easy way out, and have no integrity. If we’re not careful, we’ll adapt to our environment and become like everyone else. This way of living can limit what God wants to do in our lives.

    Paul said in Romans 12:2, “Don’t let society squeeze you into its mold.”

    Learn why it’s important to live with integrity and excellence. When you make the decision to be uncommon, to not fit in and do what everyone else is doing, then you will see uncommon favor, strength, friendships and increase! You will become everything God created you to be!

  • Develop Self-Control To Rise Higher With God - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, Apr 18, 2018

    We all have the capacity to grow and produce more than we’re producing right now. We all can do more for God. We have so much more inside us!

    But you have to say, “No, I’m not going to let the flesh run wild. I’m going to put it under control with my strong spirit man.” Discipline and self-control are the tools that God gave you to succeed and to reach your full potential.

  • Yes Is Coming - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Apr 15, 2018

    Are you ready to give up on what you’re believing for because all you’ve heard is no? Well, it’s time to get ready because yes is coming! No matter who has said no or how many times a door has closed, God has already set a date to bring His promises to pass in your life. But there is one thing God needs from you, and that is your yes. Second Corinthians 1 says, “God’s yes and our yes together make a sure thing.”Let Joel teach you how to be determined in your faith like never before. Your faith will grow as you hear amazing stories from the Bible of men and women who dared to believe God for a yes and saw amazing breakthroughs. You, too, will receive your own breakthrough as you say yes with God!

  • Be Faithful With The Small Things - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, Apr 11, 2018

    God wants to increase us, but oftentimes we overlook the small things because we want to go big. We may even think that we don’t have to deal with something small because it’s not going to make that much difference anyway. It’s easy to think that how we’re treating our spouse or all the complaining we do about our job doesn’t really matter. Perhaps there’s a lack of integrity, leaving the office early, thinking the boss isn’t looking. And on top of that, too often we think we don’t have the right education or the finances or the right people connections to achieve our dreams.

    All of that is small stuff, but God says what we believe and our attitudes are very important. The small things matter to Him, and if we don’t learn to handle the small, we’ll never go big. Perhaps you need to forgive someone or start being on time at work. That may seem small, but it’s only “little by little” that you can go big. You want a great marriage. You want that promotion. You have to do what’s right in the small things. Remember, a majestic oak tree starts with a small seed.

  • Blessed Out of Season - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Apr 08, 2018

    It’s easy to feel discouraged when you’re in a dry season, especially when you don’t see how your situation will work out. But God’s not limited to seasons. His blessing can find you out of season.

    In this encouraging message, discover how God worked in the lives of those in the Bible in unusual ways. You will be inspired in your own life to trust that God can cause winds of provision and favor to fill your life with unexpected blessings that can change your life.

  • Roll Away The Stone - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, Apr 04, 2018

    Nothing is more amazing or significant than the power displayed at the resurrection. This is what separates our faith from any other on earth. Jesus paid the ultimate price for our sins on the cross. He lived a perfect and sinless life and gave it as a sacrifice for your sins and mine. And when all hope seemed to be gone, He miraculously came to life again. What this means is: When we accept Him as our Lord and Savior, we are completely forgiven...for anything...for everything...forever!

  • The God Who Overrules - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Apr 01, 2018

    Do you feel stuck or restricted today because of a past mistake, an addiction, a health matter you’re desperate to see change or a situation you can’t control? We all face limiting situations, but the good news is that God can overturn areas where we feel blocked from moving forward and living our fullest lives.

    The Psalmist said in Psalm 9:3-4, “My enemies turn in retreat, they are defeated before you. For you have judged in my favor.”

    Let Joel show you in this powerful message how God desires to deliver you from powerful enemies. Whether you’re battling an enemy of sickness, depression, fear, lack or struggle— get ready, God is about to judge in your favor. What has stopped you in the past is going to stop you no more. Let this message help you step into a new level of destiny and wholeness as you break past barriers with God’s help.

  • Have a Peacemaker's Heart - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, Mar 28, 2018

    The apostle Paul says, “If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone” (Romans 12:18). There is a place in your spirit that says, “I am a peacemaker, and because I am a peacemaker, I can trust God to fight my battles for me and bring the right outcome.” We have the ability to draw the line in the sand and say, “I’m not going to step over this line into strife and division. I’m going to make peace.” Let’s be instruments of peace because there’s a blessing in the life of a peacemaker.

  • The Smile of God - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Mar 25, 2018

    We all have people that have done us wrong. It’s easy to hold on to the hurt, be vindictive, and try to pay people back.But Joel will teach you how one test we all have to pass is not just forgiving people, but being good to those that have not been good to us. This is when you are the smile of God.

    You can trust God to be your vindicator and fight your battles. God is a God of justice. He sees every wrong, every hurt, and every tear. He has a way to make all of your wrongs right when you trust Him and keep your character pure.

    When you sow a seeds of kindness and forgiveness, you’re proving to God that He can trust your character. That’s when God will release more favor in your life.

  • The Purpose of Commitment - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, Mar 21, 2018

    What is it that you want to accomplish? Proverbs 16:3 says, “Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and He will establish your plans.” You can’t do it on your own, but you’re not on your own. You can commit those important things in your life to the God who is committed to you! He is saying, “Focus on your commitments and believe that I’m going to help you bring them to pass.” You have to put your plans into action if God is going to help you. It takes steps of faith on your part.

  • Favor in the Storm - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Mar 18, 2018

    You don’t have to be intimidated by trouble and trials any longer; God is right there with you through any challenge. His favor is going to make things happen that you didn’t see coming.

    It’s easy to believe we have favor when good things are happening, but Joel wants to show you how we have favor even in the challenge. God will cause you to succeed in the middle of trouble. He’s not limited by our conditions; He’s limited by our thinking. When you believe, all things are possible.

  • Make Time Alone With God - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, Mar 14, 2018

    The way to develop an intimate relationship with God, a relationship where you hear His voice and let Him mold and make you into the person He wants you to be, is when you push away the distractions and simply sit at His feet. Perhaps you take a Scripture and just ponder over it and listen to what He is saying. Perhaps you sit quietly in His presence and say, “God, I love You today. Thank You for this day. Father, I want You to reveal more of Yourself to me.” Whatever that intimacy looks like for you, the only thing that will satisfy the needs of your soul and give vision for your life is to set yourself apart and sit at the feet of Jesus.

  • The Odds Are For You - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Mar 11, 2018

    Do you feel like the odds are against you today? Maybe you’re facing a difficult situation that doesn’t look like it will ever get any better. Or, you’ve prayed diligently for God to answer a specific prayer, but nothing is happening.

    Joel wants to open your eyes and show you in this message that something is happening. God is at work in your life and has a plan—His divine plan—to show out in your life and reveal His incredible favor and goodness in your life. But, you have to do your part and trust in God’s timing and plan. Release your faith, raise your expectancy and watch how God will miraculously turn your darkest hour into your greatest hour as the odds are shifted in your favor.

  • Stay Strong in God Through Joy - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, Mar 07, 2018

    When the Israelites left Babylon and returned from captivity, they didn’t know all the difficult things they were going to face. But if they could go out with joy, that joy would be there to keep them in peace. No matter what you face, don’t let life push your joy down. Push your joy up and let it flow out and signal your victory!

  • Take Your Seat - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Mar 04, 2018

    There is a seat of rest that has your name on it, and it’s time for you to rest. Enter into God’s rest!

    Many people today live overworked on the outside with no inner peace on the inside. It’s easy to want to fix things on our own, but Joel wants to show you that you don’t have to live life doing things in your own strength. This message will teach you how to have an outer rest and an inner rest as you let God work in your life and fight your battles. As you learn to live from a place of rest, you will enjoy your life more and experience greater peace and power!

  • The Power of the Soil - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Feb 25, 2018

    If a good seed that is full of potential isn’t planted in good soil, it’s not going to become what it was created to be. In the same way, you’re a seed full of gifts, talents and potential, and you need healthy soil to bloom into everything God has created you to be. In this message, learn the importance and power of protecting your seed by choosing the right environment, friendships and mindsets. As you keep your environment healthy, you will flourish and become everything God has created you to be!

  • Widen Your Lens of Perspective - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, Feb 21, 2018

    This is what God spoke through the prophet Isaiah: “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland” (Isaiah 43:18-19). God is asking us, “Do you recognize the new thing I’m doing in your life?” He is saying, “Don’t wait to have faith when the situation takes care of itself because I’m doing some new things right now. Look for it! Watch and see what I will do. It is a new thing!”

    Don’t focus so much on an area of your life that needs to change or on something you want to happen. Don’t make your plans around an unanswered prayer. God has new things springing up even now. They are springing up for you to have today. Can you see it?

  • Seasons of Silence - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Feb 18, 2018

    We all have times where it feels like God went on vacation. But Joel wants to show you how God uses those seasons of silence to get us prepared. When you’re hidden, you won’t see anything happening on the outside, but on the inside God’s doing a work within you. He’s creating an opportunity to grow, to get stronger, and to come up higher. You’re getting prepared to go to new levels.

    You may be in a season of silence right now where you feel like you’re hidden, but the silence doesn’t mean God has forgotten about you. He’s heard every prayer; He’s seen every tear. God is not preparing the blessing for you; He’s preparing you for the blessing. As you keep passing the test in the silent seasons, you’ll be prepared and ready to come into more than you can ask or think.

  • Put God First In Your Life - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, Feb 14, 2018

    Moses prayed this important prayer: “Teach us to number our days, that we can gain a heart of wisdom” (Psalm 90:12). I can hear the cry of his heart, “God, teach me and show me how to order and prioritize my day.” Remember that Moses was God’s man to lead all the Israelites toward the Promised Land, perhaps two million people. He was responsible to know how to get to the right places and find the answers to their problems. He had to hear from God for them. Perhaps you feel a little bit like Moses. Everybody’s asking you for things, and you need to fix all the problems, bring in the finances, and care for them. You feel overwhelmed. You need to pray Moses’ prayer: “God, teach me to order my day. Teach me to put a priority on the right things, to put what really matters first.”

  • The God Who Crosses His Arms - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Feb 11, 2018

    Your family or your past does not define you! You don’t have to be the most qualified, the most experienced, or come from the most influential family for God to bless you and take you higher. You may feel like you have some disadvantages that you were born into, but God is choosing you to start a generational blessing!

    Ephesians 1:5 tells us that God has adopted us into His own family. Because you’ve been adopted, you’re going to come into blessings that you didn’t deserve and favor that you didn’t work for. You can let go of the limits today! It’s time to step into the family of God and be covered in His favor, goodness and power.

  • Miracles Out of Mistakes - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Feb 04, 2018

    When we make mistakes, God doesn’t abandon us. Psalm 37:23-24 tells us, “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord… Though he falls, he will not be destroyed; for the Lord will be there to pick him up.”

    No mistake you make can ever be too great to cancel out God’s plan for your life. Let Joel show you that it’s time to believe again in this redeeming message. No matter what you’ve done, if you will shake off guilt and move forward in your thinking and expectations, God will get you to where you’re supposed to be. Not somewhere secondary, but the best plan for your life.

  • The God Who Exceeds Expectations - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Jan 28, 2018

    You may feel stuck today or think that it’s just another year of doing the same thing. But Joel wants to show you how God has some I never dreamed blessings in store for you where God shows up and exceeds your expectations.

    Take a journey through the Scriptures and see how God had sudden blessings that instantly changed lives. You’ll be inspired to have faith again for the goodness of God in your life to exceed your expectations! We think ordinary, but God thinks extraordinary. What He has planned for you is bigger, more rewarding, more fulfilling than you’ve dreamed. Paul said in Ephesians 3:20, “God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all you can ask or think.” God wants to do a new thing in you this year! It’s time to believe again.

  • God Is In Your Story - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, Jan 24, 2018

    Many people think they need to change their lives before they can draw near to God. They need to clean up a few things. But we can’t clean up our own lives. We can’t bring the change God wants to bring in our lives. He had to come to us through Jesus, and He has brought us salvation through Jesus’ blood. Only Jesus Christ can change your life.

    There’s no mess you’ve made that He can’t help you clean up. In Jesus, you are made right with God. There is nothing that God cannot do for you through Jesus Christ. There’s nothing on the inside of you that would make you distant from God. He loves you just the way you are!

    Whatever you’re facing today, God wants you to know: “I’m right here. I’m an up close and personal God. Come close to Me and know that I will help you.”

  • It's Already Set Up - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Jan 21, 2018

    When God laid out the plan for your life, He lined up everything you need to fulfill your destiny—every good break, person, solution and healing. God is not only strategically directing your steps, He’s orchestrating everything around you and has everything lined up.

    This message will help you stay in peace knowing you don’t have to force the doors in your life to open.You don’t have to make certain people like you. God will place the right people in your life who are supposed to be there. If you’ll stay in faith and not let negative voices and situations talk you out of it, you’re going to come in to what God has already set up. You won’t have to go after it, it will come after you.

  • Surrounded By The Most High - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Jan 14, 2018

    Do you feel overwhelmed today? We all have times when we feel like we’re surrounded by difficulties. It’s easy to get discouraged and think, “I’ll never get out of this trouble.” But Joel wants to remind you—in the natural, all you may see is your troubles and obstacles, but take another look. The Most High God is surrounding you!

    Psalm 91:11 says He will command His angels to watch over you.God stands watch over your life. You’re surrounded by favor, surrounded by healing and surrounded by angels.

    We all go through some fiery furnaces, but the fire is not the end. The only thing it’s going to burn off is what’s holding you back. Learn how to stay in peace knowing the forces that are for you are greater than the forces that are against you.

  • Pit Praisers - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Jan 07, 2018

    Anyone can give God praise when they’re on the mountaintop, but will you praise Him in the valley?

    Psalm 34:1, “I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise will continually be in my mouth.” That means in the good times and in the tough times. In this message, learn how to develop an attitude of gratitude regardless of the circumstances. As you do, you will experience God’s presence in your life in greater ways!

  • What Are You Delighting In? - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, Jan 03, 2018

    When you delight in the Lord, you love what the Lord loves. You love the things that God loves. You want to do what God wants you to do. You want to go where God wants you to go. When you love God, your desires are for the things of God and you give yourself to them. The apostle Paul sums up what I’m trying to say: “The heart regulates the hands” (2 Corinthians 8, MSG). What is in your heart, you put your hands to. What you’ve allowed to form in your heart, you go after because you have passion for it. Your hands and your heart work together.

  • Feed Your Destiny - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Dec 31, 2017

    What are you allowing in your spirit? The people you’re spending time with, what you’re dwelling on all day, the memories you’re allowing to replay— it is either inspiring you, building your faith, pushing you toward your destiny and dreams, or it’s limiting you.

    Joel wants to show you how to stay on course and keep your faith fed. Even in the middle of difficulties or after trauma and great trials, you can choose to feed your faith. The seeds of greatness waiting to spring forth will come out as you feed your destiny with the right things!

  • Ease Is Coming - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Dec 24, 2017

    We all go through seasons of struggle and difficulty but that’s not your permanent home. Just like oil is used to make things flow easier, God uses His anointing in our lives to make things lighter and simpler.

    Jesus said in Matthew 11:30, “My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
    Joel wants to show you in this exciting message how you’re coming in to an anointing of ease. When you come in to this ease, what used to be a struggle, will not be a struggle anymore. There’s going to be a supernatural grace, a favor that lightens the load and takes the pressure off. It may have been difficult in the past but get ready; God is about to make your life easier!

  • God Sees You As Valuable and Significant - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, Dec 20, 2017

    Don’t let your own voice distort the voice of God. You need to shake off whatever’s trying to hold you down. You may feel weak, but your weakness can be turned into strength when you take hold of God. You may feel small like a mouse, but when you grab hold of God’s strength, you have the power of an elephant! With Almighty God, you are a courageous champion.

  • Healed Through Humility - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Dec 17, 2017

    Are you ready to see your life go to a new level? Then it’s time to walk in greater humility.

    It takes humility to overlook an insult, to let somebody else be right for the sake of peace, and to not have your way all the time. But if you want to have strong flourishing relationships, Joel will show you how to walk in greater levels of self-control and honor those God has placed in your life.

    First Peter 5:6 teaches us, “Humble yourself under the mighty hand of God, in due time He will exalt you.” When you walk in humility, you will see more of God’s blessings in your life! You’ll come into that due season where God does more than you can ask or think.

  • Creating A Winning Atmosphere For Your Family - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, Dec 13, 2017

    If we’re going to create the life that we want to live with our family, we have to keep the tone of a winner. We’re going to celebrate in the good times, and we’re going to keep that winning spirit in the difficult times. I believe that if we will maintain that consistent tone, we’re going to have a great life not only for ourselves but for our families!

  • The Two You's - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Dec 10, 2017

    There’s a battle constantly taking place on the inside between the two yous. The Scripture calls this the battle between the flesh and the spirit.

    We all face the temptation to give into our flesh, but Joel will encourage you to live powerfully in the spirit. You are not walking alone; God wants to empower you to live by His spirit each day.

    Philippians 2:13 says, “God is working in you, giving you the desire to obey Him and the power to do what is right.” Right now the Most High God is working in you.

    Instead of giving into weak, insecure, compromising you, you’ll be empowered to be the strong, disciplined, confident you! Instead of walking in negativity and discouragement, you’ll be empowered to live faith filled and have big dreams again. As you learn discipline to feed your spirit, you will step into a new season of growth and favor!

  • Created To Do Good Works - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, Dec 06, 2017

    Think about the simple things that you will do today and consider the possible effects. The truth is, we can’t see the ultimate effects of what we will do today any more than Bell saw what the telephone was going to become. But I can tell you that when you do the right thing today, you’ll have an effect that reaches further than you ever dreamed or imagined, and it could be for eternity!

  • You Are Fully Loaded - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Dec 03, 2017

    When God created you, He put in you everything you need to fulfill your destiny.

    In fact, you are completely equipped for the race that’s been designed for you.

    Let this message encourage you to embrace your uniqueness and to fully be everything God has created you to be. Instead of comparing yourself to others, you’ll be inspired to take a closer look at the gifts and talents God has given you so that you can honor God with the life He has given you!

  • Be an Extravagant Giver - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, Nov 29, 2017

    Be an extravagant giver of what you have. Have the mentality that says, “I’m never empty-handed. I always have something to offer!” And watch God take your little and feed a multitude. That’s extravagant giving!

  • Step Into The Unknown - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Nov 26, 2017

    Have you been afraid to step out and do something new because you don’t know how it’s going to work out? Joel wants to show you how to let go of fear, and instead, take that new step relaxed and in God’s peace.

    Learn how to let go of the need to know all of the details of how it’s going to work out, and instead, trust God’s guidance in your life. Psalm 119:105, “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” God will lead you every step that you take. But first, you have to take that step before the next step is revealed.

  • The Power of Encouragement - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, Nov 22, 2017

    You can be a superhero for God. It might be a simple word of encouragement or just showing up with a broom or a hammer or a bag of makeup. If you will ask God to put that one person on your heart, I believe that God will do things in your life that you can’t even ask, think or imagine!

  • Look Again - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Nov 19, 2017

    Is there something you’ve given up on, or something that doesn’t look like it could happen now? Has it been too long, and you feel like you’ve missed too many opportunities? Joel wants to remind you to not give up!

    What God has started in our lives, He will always finish and bring to completion. But we can’t give up! It’s time to stir up the gifts God has placed inside and get your passion back. This message will help you stir up your faith and move forward again. God is about to wake up what you thought was dead. God is still going to do what He promised!

  • Stand Firm In Your "Yes" to God - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, Nov 15, 2017

    What is it that you need to say yes to today? Is it, “Yes, God, I’m going to forgive those people who hurt me”? Is it, “Yes, I’m going to believe that You can bring good out of this difficult time and show me Your favor”? Maybe it’s, “Yes, God, I’m going to reach out to those people whom You’re asking me to reach out to even though I don’t feel like I have time”? What does your yes look like?

  • Healing Words - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Nov 12, 2017

    It’s amazing what one kind word can do!

    Proverbs 18:4 says, “A person’s words can be life-giving water.” Proverbs 15:4 says, “A gentle tongue brings healing.” When we think of healing, many times we think of praying for people for healing. While that is one way, Joel wants to help you see how your words have healing power and why it’s important to speak the blessing over your family and children. Learn how you can change the atmosphere in your home and help break the chains that are holding your loved ones back.

    When you’re kind, encouraging and free with your compliments, when you don’t just think something good but your take time to verbalize it in the lives of those around you, not only are you being a healer, but you help others become everything God has created them to be. As you help others rise higher, God is going to cause you to rise higher!

  • Beating Bitterness - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Nov 05, 2017

    Did you know that bitterness can keep you from your destiny? The book of Hebrews teaches us that bitterness is a root that we must keep out of our lives. If you have a root of bitterness, it’s going to contaminate your life.

    Discover in this message how to keep a pure heart and why it’s important. You will learn that you can’t stop life from happening to you but you can choose how you respond.

    Even in unfair treatment and disappointments, you can trust God to be your vindicator and to work out His plan for your life. As you do, you’ll not only feel heaviness lift off of you, but you’ll begin to dream again. You’ll see the new things He has in store!

  • We're Wired With God's Power - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, Nov 01, 2017

    Can you imagine a house fully wired with electricity, but with the main power switch turned off? It wouldn't make sense to live without power when it's available to us.

    When you make Jesus the Lord of your life, you become fully connected to your source of power. But you have to turn that switch on. Romans 10:19 says to believe in our hearts and confess with our mouths that Jesus is Lord. When you believe and confess the Word of God, you are activating God's power in your life.

  • Peace With Yourself - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Oct 29, 2017

    Do you like who you are? The strengths and the weaknesses? We all have areas where we need to improve, but many people go through life feeling wrong on the inside, not really liking who they are and dwelling repeatedly on their shortcomings. This type of thinking can limit the great things God wants to do and keep you from moving forward.

    Joel wants to help you get a new perspective of yourself and how God sees you. He loves you and approves of you just the way you are. Grow in greater confidence in who God made you to be! You are fearfully and wonderfully made on purpose with a specific purpose unlike any other person. God will even use our weaknesses to draw us closer to Him. You can experience God’s best today while you’re being molded and transformed on the Potter’s wheel.

  • Hope Fuels Our Faith - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, Oct 25, 2017

    God designed hope to fuel your faith. The Scripture says that “we have this hope as an anchor for the soul” (Hebrews 6:19). It anchors you in disappointing times, in challenging times, in times of failure! If you keep your hopes up, faith will pick you up and move you to the fulfillment of the promise.

  • Joel Osteen - Sleep On
    Sun, Oct 22, 2017

    God doesn’t remove every frustration in our lives. In fact, many of the things that frustrate us, God uses to grow us and take us to the next level. Joel will show you how to live in peace no matter your circumstance. You will learn how to deal with difficult people, let go of the approval of others, and run your race strong, focused, and unshakeable!
    The Scripture says in Psalm 46:10, “Be still and know that I am God.” As you learn to let go and let God, you will enjoy your life more and become everything He has created you to be!

  • Designed to Run - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, Oct 18, 2017

    When you’re in emotional pain, it’s easy to shrink back in fear and allow an emotional limp to become a stronghold in your mind—a wrong way of thinking. The last thing you want to do is to step out in boldness or put yourself in a position where you can get hurt again.
    But you can’t allow a painful experience to trick you into thinking you’re going to have a painful life. If you find yourself shrinking back because you’re afraid you’ll be hurt again, you have to understand that God can heal what hurts! He is the mender of broken hearts.

  • A Surge Is Coming - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Oct 15, 2017

    Are you judging the rest of your life by the season you’re in now? Every person has unfair seasons, slow seasons, and discouraging seasons. But you have to remind yourself during these times, it’s just a season. It’s not the rest of your life. This too shall pass.

    Learn to stay in faith and keep the right perspective in adversity. Whenever you feel stretched, know you're in position to be propelled. God uses the difficulty to push us into new levels. The more you get pulled back, the more you’re going to shoot forward.

  • The Power of Oneness - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, Oct 11, 2017

    The Bible says when believers dwell together in unity, “there the LORD commanded the blessing—life forevermore” (Psalm 133:3). It is only the love of God that brings people to the arms and saving power of Jesus Christ. God is saying it’s up to us to keep in unity and the bond of peace.

  • When the Water Breaks - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Oct 08, 2017

    Just like a pregnant woman’s water breaking indicates that she is about to give birth, when you face difficulties and trials, it's a sign you're about to give birth to something new.
    Joel will show you in this encouraging message how God uses our trials and difficulties to bring us to a new level. Without the water breaking, we would stay stuck where we are in life. We wouldn’t see the fullness of what God has in store for the future.
    The process of pain and loss may be uncomfortable, but the purpose is always worth it in the end. What you give birth to will be greater than anything you may lose. Let this message anchor your faith and give you hope during discouragement.

  • Experience the Fullness of His Love - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, Oct 04, 2017

    His love for us never changes. Keep drawing close to Him. Let His love in and let it shine in your heart. Know that God is always drawing us, and no matter how long you've known Him, there are still higher heights and deeper depths to His love.

  • Anchored to Hope - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Oct 01, 2017

    There will always be something trying to get us to pull up our anchor of hope—bad breaks, delays, disappointments. In these tough times, when life doesn’t make sense, when your prayers haven’t been answered as quickly as you’d like, it’s easy to throw in the towel and give up, but you have to make sure to keep your anchor down andhope in the Lord.

    Let Joel show you how to have hope during all things in this empowering message.When you’re anchored to hope, God will make things happen that you could never make happen on your own. When you have your hope in Him, the scripture says you’ll never be disappointed. You may have some temporary setbacks, but when it’s all said and done, you’ll come out better than you were before if you don’t give up your hope!

  • Abraham Was A God-Made Man - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, Sep 27, 2017

    When we hear about a “self-made man,” it usually refers to someone who had very little and became wealthy and influential all on his own. Abraham, the father of our faith, also became wealthy, influential, and left an amazing legacy for the whole world, but his label reads a “God-made man.” Abraham wears the label “God-made man” because he willingly trusted God to take him to a land unknown to him, and he trusted God to make him fully into the person He created him to become. Abraham was not called by God because his faith was perfect. He was called by God because he was willing to follow and believe God, and along his journey he “was strengthened in faith” through God’s promise (Romans 4:20 NKJV). That is how Abraham became a “God-made man,” and that is how we become the same! Just be willing, and He will take and make you!

  • Overcoming Weariness - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Sep 24, 2017

    As we go through life’s many seasons, it’s easy to grow tired and weary. But when we are weary, we don’t enjoy the greatest blessings in our lives like we should.

    Galatians 6:9 encourages us, “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Find refreshment and motivation to keep on going and stay renewed and inspired no matter what you may be facing today. Discover how to have balance physically, spiritually and emotionally so you’ll have the strength to be a blessing to others and accomplish your life purpose full of peace and joy.

  • Know Who You Are In Christ - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, Sep 20, 2017

    In Genesis 1, the first thing that God says about you and me is that He created us in His image. Having His image and likeness inside of us was meant to be our source of strength and confidence. The question is, have you allowed the enemy and things that have happened to you distort the image of God in your life? You need to get your true image back!

  • Be Vulnerable - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Sep 17, 2017

    It’s easy to go through life trying to impress people, to show them that we’re strong, that we have it all together. But if you’ll humble yourself, empty out your pride, your fear, your doubts and get real, God will help you to grow. You’ll come up higher.

  • It Is Finished - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Sep 10, 2017

    Instead of accepting an addiction as a part of your life and allowing it to stay, you need to announce to that addiction: “It is finished! You don’t control me, and you can’t keep me from my destiny. The price has been paid. I am free. I am whole. I am clean.” When you rise up and tell the past, tell the poverty, tell the guilt, “It is finished! This is not who I am. I am blessed. I am prosperous. I am victorious,” strongholds are broken in the unseen realm, chains are loosed, and favor is released.

  • God Will Crown Your Efforts - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, Sep 06, 2017

    Have you ever felt as though you didn’t have the strength to overcome a challenge you’re facing? I want to encourage you today that God says, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9 NKJV). That means that whatever you’re facing today, God has all the strength you need for it. He’s saying, “My grace is sufficient for today. Everything you need is here today.”

  • Faith For The Middle - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Sep 03, 2017

    We don’t have to work out our plans, make them happen in our own strength, or become frustrated when they’re not happening the way we thought. We can stay in peace knowing that the God who created the universe has promised He will work out His plans for our lives.

    Have you felt like giving up on something because it’s too hard or taking too long? Let Joel show you how to have faith for the middle. What God has placed in your heart is already in route. The process has already been started. The right people, healing and breakthrough are on the way. Your part is to have faith for the middle.

  • Let The S-O-N Shine On You - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, Aug 30, 2017

    Jesus said, “I am the Light of the world. So if you follow me, you won’t be stumbling through the darkness, for living light will flood your path” (John 8:12 TLB). Is He lighting your pathway, or is there something blocking the Light? It’s time to let the Light shine in. Don’t keep stumbling around in the darkness. Get rid of whatever is blocking the Light and let His presence shine on you and light your pathway to a blaze!

  • God's Got This - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Aug 27, 2017

    We all have things that come against us and experience things we don’t understand. It’s easy to live uptight wondering how everything is going to work out. It we’re not careful, we’ll get discouraged, live worried, and not believe things are going to change.

    But there’s a simple phrase you have to get down in your spirit - God’s got this. Joel wants to teach you in this encouraging message that you don’t have to figure it all out. In the natural, you may not see a way, but that’s okay, we serve a supernatural God. He sees what’s happening in our lives and already has a solution. Instead of living frustrated, learn to let go and let God. When you turn it over to Him and say, “God, I know You’ve got this. I know You’re in control,” not only will you feel the heaviness lift off of you, but God will make things happen that you couldn’t make happen on your own.

  • How Are You Handling Worry? - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, Aug 23, 2017

    Did you know that the word worry comes from the Old English wyrgan, which means “to strangle?” If we let them, worry and stress literally choke the joy out of our lives. Worry pulls us away from God’s power, but worship draws us to Him, and His presence changes us. So how are you handling worry?

  • A Son Mentality - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Aug 20, 2017

    We’ve all been through disappointments and unfair situations. Because of negative things of the past, even mistakes we’ve made, it’s easy to have the wrong image of ourselves. Too many times we’ve developed a slave mentality where we don’t pray bold prayers, we don’t believe for our dreams, and we don’t expect good breaks because we feel unworthy.

    But 1 John 3:2 tells us we are sons of God. Joel wants to help you gain a new vision and understanding of who you are, not thinking about what you were, what you’ve been through, or the mistakes you’ve made. When you realize who you are—a son and daughter of the Most High God— you’ll think differently and live differently as you expect God’s favor in your life.

  • Your Second Wind is on its Way
    Thu, Aug 17, 2017

    There are times in life that we all get tired: tired of trying to make a business grow, tired of dealing with a sickness, tired of raising a difficult child, tired of living lonely, waiting to meet the right person.

    But Isaiah 40:31 says, “But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”

    Wait upon the Lord and hope in Him. Don’t give up when victory is right around the corner. God promises He will renew your strength.

  • Build People Up With Your Words - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, Aug 16, 2017

    What’s a bucket filler? It’s a person who is making positive deposits of kindness and compassion in other people’s lives, someone who is adding value to their lives. Your words can be the glue that holds your relationships together when you speak positive, faith-filled words to others.

  • The Twenty-First Day - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Aug 13, 2017

    The Psalmist said in Psalm 56:9, “The moment you pray, the tide of the battle turns.” In the unseen realm, God begins to change things in your favor the moment you pray. But many times, when we’ve been praying for a long time for something, and don’t see anything happening in the natural, it can seem like God went on vacation and our prayers aren’t doing any good. Joel wants to show you that even when you can’t see behind the scenes, God is at work. He not only heard you when you prayed, but He took it one step further; He put the miracle in motion.

    Just because you don’t see anything happening doesn’t mean the answer is not on the way. The people that see breakthroughs and promises fulfilled are the people that keep praying, keep believing and keep standing in faith. This message will inspire and equip you to be one of those people!

  • Don't Be A Complainer - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, Aug 09, 2017

    A faultfinder is defined as “a person given to harsh judgments and to finding faults.” None of us want to wear that label, and none of us want to be around a faultfinder. But it’s so easy to see what’s wrong in a situation and what could be done better. It’s so easy to see what’s wrong with another person and how they could change for the better. Our natural minds tend to always gravitate to the negative, and it causes us to find fault.

    You can’t stop all the negative thoughts you have about people and situations, but you can stop giving those thoughts life by speaking them out.Don’t give it life! Don’t ruin relationships and situations! You’re never going to see the change you want by finding fault.

    So what should you do? God says, “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” (1 Thessalonians 5:16–18 NIV). Let’s not be faultfinders. Let’s be those who pray and petition God for change with thanksgiving in our heart.

  • Stay Committed - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Aug 06, 2017

    We all have opportunities to give up on what we’re believing for and walk away from uncomfortable situations. But Joel wants to show you why it’s important to not give up on the promises God put in your heart or on the people placed in your life. Learn the importance of loyalty and faithfulness and how they tie into your destiny.

    Elisha received a double portion of Elijah’s anointing when he stayed committed until the end of Elijah’s life. In the same way, if you want to walk in the fullness of God’s blessing and receive everything God has for you, you have to stay committed to what God has in your life.

  • The Good Father - Joel Osteen

    All of us in some way have been wounded from the wrong doing of others. Many carry scars and deep wounds from childhood or from those closest to us.

    But Joel wants to show you how lingering pain and disappointment doesn’t have to hold you back anymore. The Good Father wants to pay you back for every injustice.

    Instead of staying stuck wondering why this happened, learn to call out to God. The Good Father will not only hear your call, but He’ll make more out of your life than you ever imagined. Luke 12:32 says, “It is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.”Find out how the Good Father takes good pleasure in making your wrongs right. He takes good pleasure in giving you what people couldn’t give you.

  • Learn to Love Well- Victoria Osteen
    Wed, Jul 26, 2017

    Just as people grow and their lives change, we have to adapt our love to those changes, and our love has to mature and grow. This is so important that the apostle Paul prayed for the Philippian church: “And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight” (Philippians 1:9 NIV). It wasn’t that the church was deficient in love, but Paul was saying, “Your love has so much potential to go so much further and build a greater foundation in your lives. Agree with me every day as I pray for you that your love will reach its fullest.”

    Wed, Jul 12, 2017

  • Living At Rest - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Jul 09, 2017

    Are you living a life of peace? To live in peace is to live a life of rest. Hebrews 4:11 tells us to make every effort to enter into the rest of God. What this means is that we have to actively guard our peace.

    You see, life is full of peace stealers. Every day there are people and circumstances that can pull you out of rest. But Joel will show you in this message how to put up boundaries and not allow everything in. You’ll identify the peace stealers in your life and learn how to take care of your emotional energy.

  • God's Love For You Is Unconditional - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, Jul 05, 2017

    The good news is that God doesn't need you to put a filter on your life. He doesn't need you to download an app that makes you look better. He doesn't just call us when we are perfect or when we have ourselves looking just right. His acceptance isn't based on our performance. He calls us and loves us just the way we are.

  • You Have a Defender - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Jul 02, 2017

    Has someone judged you, spread rumors or hurt you?
    Our human nature naturally wants to set the record straight and prove that those who’ve wronged us are wrong. But all this does is take up valuable energy and can keep us from being everything God has created us to be.

    Instead, God wants to be your defender. In Jeremiah 51:36, God says to us, “I will defend you. I will be your lawyer. I will plead your case.” Let Joel teach you how to let things bounce off of you. You don’t have to defend yourself. You have a defender. The Most High God said He will settle your cases.Live with more freedom, joy and peace as you let God fight your battles and trust Him to protect your reputation against every unfair word.

  • Learn To Love Others In Faith - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, Jun 28, 2017

    Finding contentment is a goal we should strive for every day. A lot of people get confused about the concept of contentment because they think it means they have to settle for where they are. However, there's a huge difference between being content and being complacent. When you are content, you are satisfied; you're full. It's not that you aren't pursuing your goals or striving to reach new levels, you are just able to enjoy where you are on the way to where you are going.

  • Room Enough - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Jun 25, 2017

    Are you discouraged today because you’re facing a difficult battle? We all have things that come against us in life and encounter unfair people and situations. But just because you have opposition doesn’t mean you’re not in God’s will. God is in control, and He’s directing your steps. What’s meant for your harm, God is going to use to your advantage.

    Joel will show you how to stay encouraged and gain a fresh perspective of trials. Setbacks are setups in our lives for God to do something greater.With God on your side, you can rest assured that when adversity arises, a new level is on the way.

  • Contentment Is a State of mind - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, Jun 21, 2017

    God has a great purpose for your life! He has marked you as a person of influence on this earth. Just by you being the best you can be, you are making an eternal difference. You are part of God’s plan and you are helping to move the kingdom of God forward.

    At times, we can’t necessarily see our gifts and talents. We don’t understand how we can be used to influence others. I think about Moses in the wilderness for 40 years. He was raised as Egyptian but as a young man he made some mistakes and acted out of anger. He ended up fleeing to the wilderness where God appeared to him as a burning bush and said, “I have an assignment for you.” Moses was afraid and felt unworthy but God knew exactly who Moses was. He said, “I’m doing a work and I want you to lead it. I choose you to lead my people.” Moses literally pleaded with God. He didn’t think he could carry out the assignment. He was thinking about his past. He focused on the fact that he stuttered. He didn’t feel equipped at all. But God said, “I’ve been shaping you from the beginning.” Moses ultimately surrendered to God and God used Moses in a powerful way.

    Even though Moses couldn’t see what God had placed in His life, Hundreds of years later after Moses died they said, “Moses was educated in all the wisdom of the Egyptians and was powerful in speech and action” (Acts 7:22, NIV). That was a far cry from the way he saw himself!
    This is an excellent reminder to us that it’s up to us to mix our ability with faith and let God have His way even when we don’t understand how He can use us. We have to put one foot in front of the other and let Him lead us into His plans and purposes. You may not see what’s in you right now, but just like Moses, God does. He is at work in you! Remember, you are a person of purpose and influence and God is using you in powerful ways in the earth!

  • Pray For Others - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Jun 18, 2017

    Where we are in life is a direct result of someone’s unseen prayers. Behind the scenes, these intercessions have strengthened us in our times of need and lifted our faith when discouraged.

    Just as others have paved the way spiritually for us, God has placed people in our lives that need our prayers.

    Learn about the principle of standing in the gap for others found in Ezekiel 22:30.
    Your prayer can be the difference maker in someone’s life! As you pray for others, God will always make sure someone is praying for you.

  • Commanded To Be Blessed - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Jun 11, 2017

    Did you know God has a commanded blessing for your life? When we honor God with our lives and do our best to keep Him first place, Deuteronomy 28:8 says, “The Lord will command the blessing on you.” God’s commanded blessing on your life will make things happen that you cannot make happen on your own and break barriers holding you back.

    Many people feel limited today by their environment, how they were raised, who they know, and what others have said about them. But Joel wants to show you that no person or thing has the power to change God’s commanded blessing on your life. With God’s commanded blessing, you’re going to go further than you’ve dreamed, accomplish more than you thought possible, and become all God created you to be.

  • The Power of Remembering - Victoria Osteen
    Wed, Jun 07, 2017

    In the Bible, God instructed his people to put up memorial stones so that they and their descendants would be reminded of the good things He had done.

    What are you remembering today? I want to encourage you to put out memorial stones in your own life. Allow those remembrances of the good things God has done to shape your thoughts, strengthen your faith, and make a difference for future generations.

  • Living Guilt Free - Joel Osteen
    Sun, Jun 04, 2017

    Do you feel weighed down today in condemnation and shame from past mistakes? It’s time to make an exchange. Because of what Christ has done, you can walk in God’s mercy every day. Instead of living in regret, you can live in peace. You don’t have to sit on the sidelines of life and pay penance for your past mistakes. God has a gift of righteousness to cover you. Nothing you’ve done in the past is too much for the mercy of God.
