Words of Hope and Inspiration with Joel and Victoria Osteen


Standing In The Place of Power

victoria osteen, joel and victoria osteen, joel osteen ministriesWe all have times when things come against us. Times when we feel cheated, mistreated, wronged or taken advantage of. Maybe you’re facing a difficulty today and you’re not exactly sure how to handle it.

If we look to the Word, we see that Jesus set a powerful example for us to follow. Here He was the King of kings and the Lord of lords in human form.

He carried all the power of heaven and earth on the inside of Him. Yet, when He was about to go to the cross, when the people were mocking Him, ridiculing Him, persecuting Him and lying about Him, He didn’t try to defend Himself. He didn’t try to set the record straight. Do you know what He did? He restrained Himself and just rested in the place of peace. He found confidence in knowing who He was. He stood strong knowing that God, His Father, would deliver Him and He would have victory in the end.

When things aren’t going right or you feel like you’re being treated unfairly, do what Jesus did and stand strong in the place of peace. Find security knowing that you are a child of the Most High God, and He is faithful. He promises to deliver you. Remember this: Jesus said, “Peace be with you.” He said, “My peace I leave with you.” What an amazing treasure we have on this earth! Hold on to that peace because nothing can take it from you, unless you give it away. Don’t let offense creep in. Offense is a liar. It will steal from you and drag you down. It will erode your self-esteem and rob you of everything that Jesus has already done for you. Instead, find confidence in knowing who you are in Jesus Christ. Because He died, you can live in power. Because of what He bore, you get all the rewards—you get the peace, the power, the strength and the anointing to overcome every obstacle you will ever face!

“Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let you heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful” (John 14:27, NASB).

It's Time For Some "First Times"
One time at church, I was talking to a college student. She was about to take a very important final exam. She asked, "Joel, would you pray that God will help me make a C on this test?" I kind of laughed and said, "Why wouldn't we want to pray that God would help you make an A?" She said, "Oh, all I

What To Wear Today
If you're like me, when you wake up in the morning, you start thinking about your day—where you'll be going, who you'll be seeing, and what the weather will be like. Then you go to your closet and choose something to wear that will work for all those different scenarios. But there's one thing that

Stay On Winning Side
Right before Jesus was arrested and taken to the cross, He had a conversation with one of his disciples, Peter. He said, "Peter, you are going to deny me three times tonight." But Peter loved Jesus and refused to believe it, "No way! I would never deny You. I'll stand by You 'til the end!" Sure enou

Thank God For Generational Blessings
We can all look back through our family lines and see how our parents, grandparents, great-grandparents and others in our family history have affected our lives. Sometimes people see negative things that have been passed down, but the blessing of God is passed down as well. In fact, Exodus 20:6 says

Lean Into Him
Have you ever been in a crowded, noisy room trying to have a conversation with someone? If you can't hear what they are saying, what do you do? Most likely, you lean in just a little bit closer so you can hear them better. You probably focus more intently on their facial expressions so you can under
