Today’s Scripture

Today’s Word | Joel Osteen Today Devotion Thursday 11 July 2024 | Resist the Urge

After David killed Goliath, King Saul became so jealous of David’s popularity that he repeatedly tried to kill him. David could have fought back and killed Saul, but he recognized that Saul had been anointed as the king. David respected that he was under God’s authority, so he spent years in the wilderness being chased by Saul. More than once David could have easily killed Saul, but he spared his life. God could trust David with so much influence, honor, and resources because he kept passing the test. Even when he was under great pressure, he was kind and respectful to someone who wasn’t kind to him. When you treat people that way, you’re proving to God that you can handle more influence and responsibility. This is a major test. To go where God wants you to go, you have to be good to people who are not good to you. When you let God refine you and don’t let the offense get in but stay in peace, you’re going to see God’s favor and blessing in great ways.

Prayer For Today: 

“Father, thank You that You are refining my character and using the pressure of difficult relationships to make me stronger and grow me up. Thank You that You are fighting my battles and helping me to be respectful and kind. I am going to stay in peace and see Your favor. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
