    Joel Osteen devotional July 1, 2017- Stay Above Strife

    Joel Osteen

    Topic: Stay Above Strife



    TODAY'S SCRIPTURE:
    "Starting a quarrel is like breaching a dam; so drop the matter before a dispute breaks out."
    (Proverbs 17:14, NIV)
    Joel Osteen

    Joel Osteen



    TODAY'S WORD:
    Too often, people fall into the trap of strife. Someone says something that rubs you the wrong way, and before you know it, there is tension, quarreling and division. The Bible tells us that strife opens the door to “every evil work.” It’s the enemy’s greatest trap to keep people from living in victory. But you don’t have to fall into the trap of strife, you can rise above it. Like today’s verse says, you can simply drop the matter before it turns into something bigger than it needs to be. You don’t have to sink down to somebody’s level and argue with them and try to prove that you’re right. You weren’t put on this earth to correct everybody around you.
    Joel Osteen

    If you are going to be all that God’s called you to be, you have to learn to stay above strife. Instead of letting disagreements pull your relationships apart, look for common ground to draw you closer to the people in your life. Look for peace. Look for ways to be a blessing. Stay above strife so you can enjoy your relationships and experience the blessing He has for you!
    Joel Osteen


    PRAYER FOR TODAY:
    Heavenly Father, I choose to stay above strife. I choose to honor You by seeking peace in my relationships. Empower me to walk in love and be an example of Your light everywhere I go in Jesus’ name. Amen.
