Joel Osteen Daily Devotional October 12 2022
SCRIPTURE: –Proverbs 11:24, TLB “It is possible to give away and become richer! It is also possible to hold on too tightly and lose everything.”
Today’s Scripture could read like a contradiction, but God’s ways are not our ways. Everything in you may say, “If I’m going to fix my finances and overcome my problems, I don’t have the money or the time to help anyone else. When I get my problems solved, I’ll help others.” No, giving your time, energy, and resources to helping others in their time of need is what’s going to open the windows of heaven and cause your problems to turn around. You’re never going to end up with less.
Here’s the beauty: When you help others, what you give is going to come back to you not in the same proportion, but pressed down, shaken together, and running over. It’s a seed you’re sowing that’s going to keep coming back to you and multiplying. When you live a life of generosity, when you make sacrifices to help other people rise higher, it’s not just going to affect you, it’s to going to affect your children. It’s going to be more than you imagined.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for the promise that it is possible for me to give away my time and resources to those in need and yet prosper. Thank You that as I sow seeds of blessing in others, You will cause it to multiply in coming back to me. I believe that You will open the windows of heaven to me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
