Today’s Scripture:

JOEL OSTEEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL 17 OCTOBER 2020

MESSAGE:

I read about the Biosphere 2 project that is located in Oracle, Arizona. Scientists originally constructed this big dome structure to be a miniature version of our planet.

JOEL OSTEEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL OCTOBER 17 2020

It was to be a closed ecological system used to study how the earth functions and to learn how we can make improvements without harming earth’s biosphere. The researchers were surprised by how much faster trees grew in this biosphere, but before the trees reached their full height, they fell over. They realized the trees couldn’t withstand their own weight because they hadn’t replicated strong winds in this biosphere. Because it was always calm, the trees didn’t have to withstand any pressure, so their roots didn’t develop properly. They had a deficiency in what they call “stress wood,” which is essentially the trees” reaction to wind. Stress wood helps the tree grow stronger and more solidly. Without it, the trees can grow fast, but they can’t survive. The wind is essential for the tree to flourish and become what it was created to be.

It’s interesting that in the Parable of the Sower, Jesus talks about the seed that falls in stony ground. He says the stony ground is like those who receive His word with joy, but their roots don’t go down very deep. “They believe for a while, but they wilt when the hot winds of testing blow” (Luke 8:13). You can’t become who you were created to be without going through hot winds of testing. Hot winds are when you feel overwhelmed, when you’re doing the right thing but it’s not improving. You’re diagnosed with an illness, or your child is in trouble, or the pandemic hits and your business slows down. That’s not just a random challenge or bad luck; you’re in the hot winds of testing. How you respond in the difficult times will determine whether you come out bitter or you come out better.

Without these hot winds of testing, without storms, our life would be easier, but we wouldn’t develop properly. We wouldn’t be able to carry the weight of what God has in store. Don’t complain about the wind; it’s strengthening you. Those hot winds of testing can be uncomfortable, but your roots are going down deeper. Those winds are not there to break you; they’re preparing you. You’re developing courage, strength, and fortitude. Every day you stand, your roots are getting stronger. Every time you praise when you could complain, you’re developing stress wood. When you keep doing the right thing when the wrong thing is happening, your core is getting strengthened to carry the full weight of God’s blessing. Pass the test and stand tall and strong and flourishing.

Joel osteen ministries believe that : the entire Bible is inspired by God, without error and the authority on which we base our faith, conduct and doctrine.

…in one God who exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God who came to this earth as Savior of the world.

…Jesus died on the cross and shed His blood for our sins. We believe that salvation is found by placing our faith in what Jesus did for us on the cross. We believe Jesus rose from the dead and is coming again.

…water baptism is a symbol of the cleansing power of the blood of Christ and a testimony to our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

…in the regular taking of Communion as an act of remembering what the Lord Jesus did for us on the cross.

…every believer should be in a growing relationship with Jesus by obeying God’s Word, yielding to the Holy Spirit and by being conformed to the image of Christ.

…as children of God, we are overcomers and more than conquerors and God intends for each of us to experience the abundant life He has in store for us.
