TODAY’S TOPIC: YOUR DESTINY IS CALLING

On the eighth day they came to circumcise the child, and they were going to name him after his father Zechariah, but his mother spoke up and said, “No! He is to be called John.”
Today’s Word On Joel Osteen Daily Devotional 14th November 2020
It’s interesting that when John the Baptist was born, the neighbors and relatives decided his name should be Zechariah, after the father. But even before John was conceived, the angel Gabriel had told Zechariah that his name was John, and he would walk in the spirit and power of Elijah and prepare the people for the Lord.
We all have “theys” in our life. We should take counsel and listen to advice, but you cannot let other people name your future. Sometimes people will try to name you something you’re not. They’ll name you addicted, or average, or not that talented. Don’t let them put limitations on you and convince you that you can’t accomplish your dreams.
The principle is: let your heavenly Father name your future. You are who God says you are–blessed, strong, talented, prosperous, forgiven, and healthy. God is telling you what you can become. Your destiny is calling. You have to believe it, then you’ll see it.
Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that You put a promise and dream in my heart. Thank You for calling me to my destiny. I’m not going to be moved by who’s not cheering me on. I know You being for me is more than enough to get me to where I’m supposed to be. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
Energize Your Life!
God has created you to be a victor, not a victim. Jump-start your day by celebrating the very best that God has for you! These daily inspirations will help you grow in your relationship with the Lord and equip you to be everything God intends you to be.
About Joel Osteen
Raised in Houston, Texas, with a loving family of seven and world-renowned parents in full-time ministry, Joel Osteen never imagined that he would follow so closely in his father’s footsteps. As a young man, his training and interests were behind the scenes in television production, though he was close to his father in ministry.
“There’s no greater feeling than being able to help people rise higher and overcome something and feel better about themselves. I think that we’re all made to help others, to lift people UP.”
– JOEL OSTEEN
His father always encouraged him to preach, but Joel would politely decline time and time again until one day in October 1999 when his father was admitted to the hospital with kidney complications. Joel finally agreed to preach the next Sunday, and his father passed the following week. Joel’s first sermon was the last his father ever heard. Joel and his wife, Victoria, were suddenly thrust into full-time leadership of Lakewood Church.
