Your Days are Written

by Joel Osteen

Today's Scripture

" Öall the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be" (Psalm 139:16, NIV).

Today's Word

Did you know that God has already written out the story of your life? Heís written out plans for your good, plans to prosper you, plans for peace. That doesnít mean that you wonít go through negative situations. It means that God will use everything you go through to move you forward toward that good plan.

When things happen that we donít understand, itís easy to think, ďWhy did this happen? Why did this friend betray me? Why did this company lay me off? Why didnít I get that promotion?Ē But, you canít let the things you donít understand keep you stuck on the same page in the story of your life. You have to decide to turn the page so that you can see the victory waiting for you in the next chapter.

If you are facing a difficulty today, know that Godís plan is to turn it around and use it for your good. The story of your life isnít over! Keep moving forward, keep believing, keep hoping, keep forgiving because your days are written out for good, and itís time to turn the page and see the blessing He has in store for your life!

A Prayer for Today

Father God, today I humbly come to You giving thanks for Your goodness and faithfulness in my life. I trust that Your plan for me is good, and I choose to turn the page on the past by choosing Your ways. I forgive and release those who have wronged me so I can move forward in the next chapter You have for me. In Jesusí Name. Amen.
