Ignite The Promises – Joel Osteen Devotional, 23rd August 2022
Hebrews 4:2, NKJV
But the word which they heard did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in those who heard it.
In the Scripture, God has given us hundreds of powerful promises that say we’ll live an abundant life, we’ll be healthy and whole, we’ll experience favor, increase, restoration, and on and on. But as encouraging and inspiring as the promises are, on their own they won’t do you any good. They’re just nice, encouraging words. You have to add in the one ingredient that activates the power, that makes the promises come alive and become what God says, and that’s faith.
God’s promises can bring healing, can restore relationships, can catapult you to a new level, but you won’t see any change until you ignite them. You’re on the verge of God doing something you’ve never seen. Why don’t you start mixing in faith with His promises today? Faith ignites the promises, and powerful things happen. When you believe, angels go to work. When you believe, supernatural doors will open. When you believe, you’ll defeat giants. When you believe, you’ll accomplish dreams much bigger than you thought.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for the promises You have spoken in Your Word and to my spirit. Thank You that I can speak words of faith that agree with Your promises and ignite them to come to pass in my life. I believe that as I mix in my faith that You will do things I’ve never seen before. In Jesus’ Name, Amen
