Joel Osteen Daily Devotionals September 9 2022 : Are You a Moses? :
2 Chronicles 15:7, NIV
But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.
In the Scripture, when Moses was born, Pharaoh had put out a decree that all the male Hebrew babies were to be killed. From Moses’ birth, the enemy was trying to stop him with adversity. Moses’ mother hid him in the house for three months, then she put him in a papyrus basket and hid him along the dangerous bank of the Nile. When Pharaoh’s daughter discovered Moses and fell in love with him, her father, who had made the decree, allowed her to keep the Hebrew baby and raise him as her own.
When God is fighting your battles, things will happen that don’t make sense. You may be facing all kinds of adversity and wonder why. How do you know that adversity isn’t a sign that greatness is in you and that the enemy is trying to push you down to keep you from leaving your mark? How do you know you’re not a Moses? You have to be strong and get ready to step into your greatness.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that You are always greater than any difficulty or adversity I will ever face. Thank You that when the enemy is trying to push me down, I can remain strong and know that reward is coming. I believe that You are going to bring me to the next level. In Jesus’ Name, Amen
