Destined for Blessing

From Joel Osteen:
Destined for Blessing

Today's Scripture
"For we are God's [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live]" (Ephesians 2:10, AMP).

Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
You are destined for blessing! Are you living the good life that God has prearranged for you? Everything you need to live as an overcomer is inside of you by the power of the Holy Spirit. As a believer, there are seeds of success on the inside of you. There are blessings in store for you. If you´ll get into agreement with God in your thoughts, attitudes, words and actions, then you will be positioned to receive all of His spiritual blessings. Choose to start your day by declaring what God says about you. Declare, "I am blessed. I am prosperous. I am healthy and strong. I have favor. No weapon formed against me shall prosper. I am the head and not the tail, above only and not beneath." Friend, when you start speaking like that, all of heaven takes notice. Your faith activates His plan for your life. Angels are dispatched on your behalf. Blessings are set in motion. Before you know it, you are living the good life He promised and moving forward into the destiny of blessing He has in store for you!

A Prayer for Today
Father in heaven, thank You for loving me and for setting me up for blessing. I choose to speak Your truth over my life so that I can be all that You’ve called me to be. I honor You today and always. In Jesus´ Name. Amen.

Over the past 6 months Joel's word has helped to keep my heart, eyes and head focused on God. Today has been no different. Thank you for all the Prayer Warriors you have also helped me stay focused on God, the one in control.

Tomorrow, Aaron and I, along with my parents will meet with the funeral directors to make arrangements for Jeremiah's services. Tentatively, we are looking at Monday 1.12.09 for the calling with services on Tuesday 1.13.09. When the details and times are certain we will post again.

Aaron and I have been so overwhelmed with the stories and praise each of you for sharing how our son has impacted you for the Kingdom - he has blessed us so much.
We are equally impressed how quickly our support system moved into action. If you have not seen the amazing shirt designed by our friend, please see the link in the previous post - again a blessing.

Our deepest thanks to each of you, we are on this journey together - THANK YOU!

Beth and Aaron,
We continue to pray for comfort and peace as you walk through this time. You will never be the same and your hearts will bear the battle scars...but you will come to know and love Jesus in a way that is only possible through pain. You are loved and prayed for often.
