JOEL OSTEEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR 11TH JANUARY 2022 – IRON GATES CANNOT STOP YOU)
TOPIC: “Iron Gates Can’t Stop You”
SCRIPTURE: Acts 12:10, MSG
Past the first guard and then the second, they came to the iron gate that led into the city. It swung open before them on its own, and they were out on the street, free as the breeze.
In Acts 12, King Herod had the apostle James killed and then put Peter in prison. Chained between two guards in the deepest part of the prison, Peter was to be brought to trial the following day. Meanwhile the church was praying for him through the night. Herod did everything he could to keep Peter in, but he didn’t realize that he couldn’t keep God out. In the middle of the night, an angel came and led Peter past guard after guard and through the final iron gate to freedom from what would have been the end of Peter.
You’re going to see some of the closed doors that should stop you—the sickness, the addiction, the lack of job experience—open of their own accord. It’s not going to be anything you do. You’re going to be promoted despite who’s trying to hold you back. They may try to close the door to you getting the contract, the scholarship, or the loan, but God opens the door. Stay in peace. You and God are a majority.
PRAYER FOR TODAY – JOEL OSTEEN 11TH JANUARY 2022.
“Father, thank You that You supernaturally open doors and make things happen that I can’t make happen and don’t deserve. Thank You that I can stay in peace in difficult times, knowing that at any moment You can turn things around. Whether You do it gradually or suddenly, I will rest in You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen
