Then he took him outside and said, “Look at the sky. Count the stars. Can you do it? Count your descendants! You’re going to have a big family, Abram!”
Today’s Word oN Joel Osteen Today 17th December 2020 Devotional
When God promised Abraham that he was going to be the father of many nations, Abraham was in his eighties. He and his wife, Sarah, were too old to have a child. God told him to look up into the nighttime sky, and he would have as many descendants as the stars. God wanted him to have a picture of it in his mind because He knew the negative images would come. Every time Abraham was tempted to think the promise could never happen, he only needed to imagine all those stars of promise. Twenty years later, Sarah gave birth.
What’s playing on the picture screen of your mind? God has spoken over you how you’ll accomplish your dreams, break that addiction, see your health restored. Are you letting discouraging images keep you from God’s best? God wants to use your imagination for the good, to create vision, to make you hopeful, to fill you with faith.
Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that I can use my imagination to help me stay positive, to be filled with hope and faith. Thank You for the pictures in my mind that remind me of the promises You have spoken over me. I believe I will overcome every obstacle. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

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.
