TOPIC: The Blessing Overrides All Else
And God said to Balaam, “You shall not go with them; you shall not curse the people, for they are blessed.” (Numbers 22:12, NKJV)
Joel Osteen Devotional 19 October 2021 Message: When the Israelites headed toward Jericho and were camped on the plains of Moab, the Moabite king saw how many Israelites there were, and he was afraid. So he hired a foreigner named Balaam to curse the people of Israel. But God told Balaam that “what I have blessed you cannot curse.” Notice that when God’s blessing is upon you, it doesn’t matter what negative thing someone says or does to you. All that matters is that God put His blessing on you, and that blessing will always override any curse.
When you go through disappointments, when unfair things happen, it’s easy to feel that’s clouded your future. Have a new perspective. What God has blessed nothing can curse. When you understand you have God’s blessing on you, you won’t be upset because someone’s talking about you. You won’t be worried about your finances or discouraged because of a setback. You know every force that’s trying to stop you is powerless to change what He has put on your life.
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
“Father, thank You for the blessing You have put on my life because I belong to You. Thank You that Your blessing will override any curse or negative thing that is said or done against me. I believe that every force that is trying to stop me is powerless before You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
