Pastor Joel Osteen inspirational Get Your Passion Back (Inspirational): some us us maybe in slow seasons, we might be waiting for the right person, or doors to open and then you are starting to Get discouraged and asking God when he will do something, while we are waiting on God we need to take steps to grow, develop our skills and be good to others, what we do when we are waiting for answers determines if we prosper or if we are just enduring.
When God sees you giving your all and pursuing your goal even though things are not improving, still serving, giving and excelling, he may not bring you out of the challenge but he will cause you to prosper in the challenge. what is a greater testimony? that God brought you out of a challenge or that he made you flourish in a challenge? that he did not stop the pandemic but made you prosper in the pandemic.
God says in Jeremiah 29 vs.11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”. Joel osteen tells us that when God said this to the Israelites, they were not in a good place, they had just been taken captive and they wanted to go home and their whole world was crumbling in front of them and a message from God came saying that they were going to be there fore a couple of years more, they were discouraged, the prophet Jeremiah showed up and told them to do something significant, he said they should build houses and live in the and make gardens and eat of them, he told them to get married and increase and prosper, God did not tell them that he was going to liberate them and proper them, he said they should he will prosper them right there where they where. That is how powerful and amazing the lord our God is, we are advised to just trust in his plans for our lives.
