Paid In Full - Joel Osteen Devotional, 28th April, 2022





Today’s Scripture

Matthew 6:12, NKJV
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

Today’s Word

When God talks about debts, He's talking about the times when people hurt you and do you wrong. It's a debt because human nature says, "I was wronged. Now I want justice. You have to pay me back." But the mistake many people make is in trying to collect a debt that only God can pay. Your parents can't pay you back for not providing a loving childhood. Your friend can't pay you back for the pain they caused by something they said or did. Only God can truly pay you back.


If you spend your life trying to get from others what only God can give, it will ruin relationships. Your attitude should be, "God, I will not be bitter, trying to get people to give me what they don't have. You promised You would settle my cases and pay me back double for every injustice. I'm leaving it up to You." When you see the person who did you wrong, stamp the account "Paid in Full" in your imagination. Forgive so you can be free.

Prayer for Today

Father, thank You that I can forgive other people of their debts and release them from trying to pay me back. Thank You that I can look to You to heal my hurts and right the wrongs done to me. I declare I won't let bitterness, anger, or an offense to have control over my life. In Jesus' Name, Amen
