Obey His Word – Joel Osteen Devotional, 17th July 2023


Joel Osteen Devotional, 17th July 2023


Today’s Topic: Obey His Word


Today’s Scripture

John 2:7, NKJV

Jesus said to them, “Fill the waterpots with water.” And they filled them up to the brim.

Today’s Word

In John 2, when the good wine ran out at a wedding, Jesus told the staff to fill six large stone pots with water, which seemed odd. They needed wine not water. Sometimes God will ask you to do things you don’t understand. He has the best wine ready, but it’s dependent on your obedience to His word. Will you do what He’s asking you to do? It may be to forgive someone who did you wrong and hurt you. You think you have a right to be bitter, but that will keep you from the best wine. It may be to step out in faith when you don’t feel qualified to teach a class, to start a business, or to mentor a young person. Or maybe it’s to keep a good attitude when you’re being treated unfairly and let God be your vindicator. He can vindicate you better than you can vindicate yourself.


Keep doing what God asks you to do. Keep being good to people, keep giving, serving, and expecting. The best wine is coming.


Prayer for Today

“Father, thank You that I don’t have to understand everything You ask me to do. I just have to obey. Thank You that I can let go of every unfair thing and forgive quickly before bitterness can come in. I’m going to keep being good to others and expecting the best is coming. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
