  • [MUSIC]

  • >> JOEL OSTEEN:

  • WELL, GOD BLESS YOU.

  • IT'S A JOY TO COME INTO YOUR

  • HOMES, AND IF YOU'RE EVER

  • IN OUR AREA, PLEASE STOP BY

  • AND BE A PART OF

  • ONE OF OUR SERVICES.

  • I PROMISE YOU, WE'LL MAKE YOU

  • FEEL RIGHT AT HOME.

  • I LIKE TO START

  • WITH SOMETHING FUNNY,

  • AND I HEARD ABOUT THIS COUPLE

  • THAT HAD BEEN MARRIED FOR 60

  • YEARS AND THEY WERE SITTING

  • ON THE FRONT PORCH TOGETHER.

  • FEELING ROMANTIC, THE WIFE

  • SAID, "I REMEMBER WHEN YOU

  • USED TO ALWAYS HOLD MY HAND."

  • HER HUSBAND REACHED OVER AND

  • TOOK HER HAND.

  • SHE SAID, "I REMEMBER WHEN

  • YOU ALWAYS USED TO KISS ME ON

  • THE CHEEK."

  • HE LEANED OVER, KISSED HER ON

  • THE CHEEK.

  • SHE SAID, "I EVEN REMEMBER

  • WHEN YOU USED TO NIMBLE ON MY

  • EAR."

  • HE GOT UP AND STARTED WALKING

  • AWAY.

  • SHE SAID, "WHAT'S WRONG?

  • WHERE YOU GOING?"

  • HE TURNED AROUND AND SAID,

  • "TO GET MY TEETH."

  • SAY IT LIKE YOU MEAN IT,

  • "THIS IS MY BIBLE.

  • I AM WHAT IT SAYS I AM.

  • I HAVE WHAT IT SAYS I HAVE.

  • I CAN DO WHAT IT SAYS I CAN

  • DO.

  • TODAY I WILL BE TAUGHT THE

  • WORD OF GOD.

  • I BOLDLY CONFESS.

  • MY MIND IS ALERT.

  • MY HEART IS RECEPTIVE.

  • I WILL NEVER BE THE SAME.

  • IN JESUS'S NAME."

  • GOD BLESS YOU.

  • I WANT TO TALK TO YOU TODAY

  • ABOUT THE POWER OF THE

  • BLESSING.

  • WHEN YOU HONOR GOD WITH YOUR

  • LIFE, THERE IS A BLESSING

  • HE PUTS ON YOU

  • THAT GIVES YOU AN ADVANTAGE.

  • IT CAUSES YOU TO RISE UP WHEN

  • CIRCUMSTANCES ARE TRYING

  • TO PUSH YOU DOWN.

  • YOU WILL RECOVER FROM AN

  • ILLNESS WHEN THE EXPERT SAID

  • YOU WOULDN'T.

  • YOU WILL ACCOMPLISH DREAMS

  • THAT LOOKED IMPOSSIBLE.

  • IT WASN'T JUST YOUR TALENT,

  • YOUR SKILL, DETERMINATION.

  • THERE IS A FORCE BEHIND YOU

  • FIGHTING YOUR BATTLES,

  • OPENING DOORS

  • YOU COULDN'T OPEN, BRINGING

  • THE RIGHT PEOPLE.

  • THOSE WEREN'T JUST

  • GOOD BREAKS.

  • THAT'S THE BLESSING

  • ON YOUR LIFE.

  • THE BLESSING WILL CAUSE YOU

  • TO PROSPER WHEN OTHERS

  • ARE STRUGGLING.

  • THE BLESSING WILL BRING

  • PROMOTION WHEN YOU

  • WEREN'T NEXT IN LINE.

  • THE BLESSING WILL CAUSE

  • PEOPLE TO BE GOOD TO YOU

  • THAT DON'T EVEN LIKE YOU.

  • THE SCRIPTURE SAYS IN

  • MALACHI, WHEN WE GIVE OUR

  • TITHES AND OFFERINGS, GOD

  • WILL POUR OUT A BLESSING THAT

  • WE DON'T HAVE ROOM TO

  • RECEIVE.

  • IT DOESN'T SAY "BLESSINGS,"

  • PLURAL.

  • IT SAYS "BLESSING," SINGULAR.

  • WHEN YOU HAVE THE BLESSING,

  • THEN ALL KINDS OF BLESSINGS

  • WILL COME.

  • YOU WON'T HAVE ROOM TO

  • RECEIVE ALL THE GOOD THINGS

  • GOD HAS IN STORE.

  • WHEN YOU FACE DIFFICULTIES,

  • THE MEDICAL REPORT, DOESN'T

  • LOOK GOOD.

  • YOU DON'T SEE HOW YOU COULD

  • EVER GET OUT OF DEBT, EVER

  • BREAK THE ADDICTION.

  • ORDINARY PEOPLE WOULD

  • COMPLAIN.

  • ORDINARY PEOPLE WOULD BE

  • WORRIED.

  • HERE'S THE KEY, YOU'RE NOT

  • ORDINARY.

  • YOU HAVE THE BLESSING.

  • GOD'S FACE IS SMILING ON YOU.

  • HE'S GOING BEFORE YOU RIGHT

  • NOW MAKING CROOKED PLACES

  • STRAIGHT, MOVING THE WRONG

  • PEOPLE OUT OF THE WAY,

  • ARRANGING THINGS IN YOUR

  • FAVOR.

  • WHEN YOU KNOW YOU HAVE THE

  • BLESSING, YOU DON'T GO AROUND

  • UPSET 'CAUSE PEOPLE AREN'T

  • TREATING YOU RIGHT, WORRIED

  • ABOUT YOUR FINANCES,

  • FRUSTRATED OVER A CHILD.

  • YOU STAY IN PEACE KNOWING

  • THAT IT'S JUST A MATTER OF

  • TIME BEFORE THINGS CHANGE.

  • YOU KNOW GOD BEING FOR YOU IS

  • MORE THAN THE WORLD BEING

  • AGAINST YOU.

  • WHEN YOU'RE TEMPTED TO BE

  • DISCOURAGED, THINK IT'S NEVER

  • GOING TO WORK OUT, TURN IT

  • AROUND.

  • "FATHER, THANK YOU FOR THE

  • BLESSING ON MY LIFE.

  • THANK YOU THAT YOU'RE

  • BREATHING IN MY DIRECTION.

  • THANK YOU THAT YOU'RE TAKING

  • ME WHERE I COULD NOT GO ON MY

  • OWN."

  • THIS IS WHAT DAVID DID.

  • WHEN HE FACED GOLIATH IN THE

  • NATURAL, HE DIDN'T HAVE A

  • CHANCE.

  • GOLIATH WAS TWICE HIS SIZE,

  • HAD ALL KINDS OF TRAINING AND

  • EXPERIENCE.

  • HE WAS WEARING A FULL SET OF

  • ARMOR.

  • DAVID DIDN'T HAVE ANY OF

  • THAT.

  • HE COULD HAVE BEEN

  • INTIMIDATED, STAYED IN THE

  • SHEPHERD'S FIELDS,

  • COMPLAINED, "GOD, HE'S TOO

  • BIG."

  • BUT DAVID UNDERSTOOD THIS

  • PRINCIPLE.

  • HE KNEW THE BLESSING ON HIS

  • LIFE GAVE HIM AN ADVANTAGE.

  • HE WENT OUT WITH A SLINGSHOT

  • AND A FEW STONES AND DEFEATED

  • GOLIATH.

  • AND WHAT YOU HAVE MAY SEEM

  • SMALL COMPARED TO WHAT YOU'RE

  • UP AGAINST, BUT A SLINGSHOT

  • WITH THE BLESSING IS MORE

  • POWERFUL THAN A TANK WITHOUT

  • IT.

  • YOUR TALENT MAY SEEM SMALL

  • COMPARED TO THE DREAM GOD PUT

  • IN YOUR HEART, BUT THAT

  • TALENT WITH THE BLESSING WILL

  • TAKE YOU FURTHER THAN YOU CAN

  • IMAGINE.

  • NOW, DON'T DISCOUNT YOURSELF.

  • DON'T LOOK AT ALL THE REASONS

  • WHY YOU CAN'T BE SUCCESSFUL,

  • WHY YOU CAN'T PURCHASE A

  • HOUSE, WHY YOU CAN'T BREAK

  • THE ADDICTION.

  • ON YOUR OWN, IT MAY NOT

  • HAPPEN BUT YOU'RE NOT ON YOUR

  • OWN.

  • THERE IS A BLESSING ON YOUR

  • LIFE PUT THERE BY THE GOD WHO

  • SPOKE WORLDS INTO EXISTENCE.

  • THIS BLESSING IS NOT NATURAL,

  • IT'S SUPERNATURAL.

  • IT WILL CAUSE THINGS TO

  • HAPPEN THAT YOU COULDN'T MAKE

  • HAPPEN.

  • THE BLESSING WILL CAUSE

  • OPPORTUNITY TO FIND YOU.

  • GOOD BREAKS WILL CHASE YOU

  • DOWN, PROMOTION, HEALING,

  • VINDICATION.

  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO AFTER

  • THEM, THE BLESSING WILL CAUSE

  • THEM TO COME TO YOU.

  • ONE SUNDAY MORNING WHEN MY

  • FATHER WAS THE PASTOR, I WAS

  • IN THE TV PRODUCTION AREA AND

  • RIGHT BEFORE SERVICE, I RAN

  • DOWNSTAIRS TO SEE MY FATHER

  • AND PUT HIS MICROPHONE ON.

  • ON MY WAY BACK UP, I WAS IN A

  • BIG HURRY.

  • AS I CAME AROUND A CORNER,

  • THIS MAN WAS COMING UP.

  • HE STOPPED ME AND SAID,

  • "JOEL, MY COUSIN HAS A

  • CONSTRUCTION PERMIT FOR THE

  • LAST FULL-POWER COMMERCIAL

  • TELEVISION STATION IN

  • HOUSTON.

  • HE WANTS YOU TO BE A PART OF

  • IT."

  • THERE WERE HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE

  • IN THE LOBBY THAT DAY.

  • IF I WOULD HAVE BEEN 10

  • SECONDS EARLIER, I WOULD HAVE

  • MISSED HIM.

  • IF HE WOULD HAVE CAUGHT ONE

  • MORE RED LIGHT ON THE WAY TO

  • CHURCH, OUR PATHS WOULDN'T

  • HAVE CROSSED.

  • GOD HAD US AT THE RIGHT PLACE

  • AT THE RIGHT TIME.

  • I WASN'T LOOKING FOR A

  • TELEVISION STATION, BUT A

  • TELEVISION STATION WAS

  • LOOKING FOR ME.

  • WAS THAT A COINCIDENCE, A

  • LUCKY BREAK?

  • NO, THAT WAS THE BLESSING ON

  • MY LIFE.

  • I CAN'T TAKE CREDIT FOR IT.

  • ALL I WAS GOING WAS HONORING

  • GOD, BEING MY BEST, AND THE

  • OPPORTUNITY FOUND ME.

  • WE PUT THE STATION ON THE AIR

  • AND SEVERAL YEARS LATER, SOLD

  • IT FOR A HUGE PROFIT.

  • THOSE FUNDS WERE INSTRUMENTAL

  • IN US RENOVATING THIS PLACE,

  • THE FORMER COMPAQ CENTER.

  • GOD HAS THE RIGHT BREAKS, THE

  • RIGHT PEOPLE LINED UP FOR

  • YOU.

  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO LIVE

  • FRUSTRATED, TRYING TO MAKE

  • THINGS HAPPEN, WORRIED THAT

  • IT'S NOT GOING TO WORK OUT.

  • GOD IS DIRECTING YOUR STEPS.

  • HE'S GOING TO HAVE YOU AT THE

  • RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME

  • DOWN TO THE SPLIT SECOND.

  • YOU ARE NOT GOING TO MISS

  • WHAT BELONGS TO YOU.

  • OPPORTUNITY IS COMING BIGGER

  • THAN YOU'VE IMAGINED.

  • WHEN WE SIGNED THE CONTRACT

  • FOR THE TELEVISION STATION, I

  • WAS SO EXCITED.

  • I NEVER DREAMED WE'D OWN A

  • STATION.

  • I COULDN'T FATHOM ANYTHING

  • BIGGER.

  • I DIDN'T REALIZE THAT WAS

  • JUST A STEP IN WHAT GOD

  • WANTED TO DO.

  • AS GREAT AS I THOUGHT IT WAS,
