You're Made For Revival
In this eye-opening message, Joel Osteen reminds us of the encouraging promise found in Romans 8:28, "All things work together for good to those who love God..." He will remind you not to isolate one part of your life that's discouraging— one divorce, one bad childhood, one disappointment—but instead, keep the right perspective. God has another ingredient to send your way that will cause everything to work together.
God will add just the right ingredients at just the right time so that we can fulfill our destiny in life. Our lives will come together as God adds all the ingredients that make up our lives making things happen in our life. Nothing in life happens to you; it happens for you. God wouldn't have let it happen, if He didn't have a purpose. There is another ingredient to the recipe that makes up our lives.
Life is not always fair, but God is always fair. You can't isolate one bad break because it is only 1 ingredient.
Romans 8:28 NLT
And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. The Osteens used to make cookies, one time they did not have any baking soda and figured that it was such a small portion that it wouldn't make any difference but the cookies came out flat.
Some people are bitter on life but all the ingredients haven't come.
1 Corinthians 13:12 NLT
Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely. Stop being discouraged. God always ends with it's good so if its not good, then it's not over. Using the cookie analogy, vanilla extract doesn't taste good until you add all the ingredients.
Joel had an unfair tax problem which lead him to becoming friends with an atorney who helped him negotiate a contract for a television station which he sold to renovate the Compaq Center!
NAOMI let a season of mourning turn into a lifetime of mourning. Don't become known as what you went through. No matter what know that you are in it to win it.
Exodus 15: 22...bitter water becomes sweet.
Stop listening to the condemning voices and forgive yourself. God wouldn't allow something if it wasn't for your good. Then he said, "Throw out your net on the right-hand side of the boat, and you'll get some!" So they did, and they couldn't haul in the net because there were so many fish in it.
They were professional fisherman and they had to ignore history: they hadn't captured any fish all night. They had to be obedient. That was a God moment. Maintain GOD moments to take hold of destiny moments. The God moments always require a obedience and sacrifice. My actions and words make a difference. Look for the best and let other people win.
