You may have done things you’re not proud of. You may think that you’ll always be hindered by your past. Quit listening to the accusing voices. You’re forgiven; you’re redeemed. Now, do your part and put on your robe of honor.
Your words can limit your life or they can increase your life. They can curse your future or they can bless your future. What you’re saying in the storm will determine whether you come out of that storm. Talk about how big your God is.
It may seem like another routine day, everything looks the same, but God is going to show up and do something out of the ordinary, something that you didn’t see coming, something that will thrust you to a new level.
Get rid of your barely get by mentality. “I’ll be satisfied if I can just pay my bills and make it through.” That is not your destiny. The blessing on your life is going to cause you to lend and not borrow, to have more than enough.
What’s come against you is not permanent. What was meant for harm God is turning to your advantage. Be inspired by this message from Joel:
When God laid out the plan for your life, He lined up everything you need to fulfill your destiny: every good break, every person, every solution, every healing. He’s not trying to figure out how to do it; it’s already set up.
You don’t have to have favor with everyone; you just need favor with the right one. A dozen people may not like you, but they can’t stop you. God has the right people that will bring opportunities, favor, and promotion.
What that challenge took out God is about to put back in. He’s not going to just bring you out, He’s going to make up for what was unfair. Click here to listen to Joel's latest podcast:
Nothing is too much for our God. His power is greater than any force that’s trying to stop you. You are not going to live addicted, depressed, sick, fearful. Those forces that have held you back are being broken.
God has the final say. He says, “I’m going to restore the years that were stolen. I’m going to pay you back for what was unfair.”
God will not let the actions of others keep you from your purpose. If that were the case, they would control your destiny and not God. Get this encouraging message from Joel:
The resurrected Jesus appears to Peter and restores him by commanding him to spread his gospel, and Peter takes on that mission, becoming perhaps the most important of Jesus’ disciples. Make sure to tune in tonight on @HISTORY. #JesusHisLife
We all go through disappointments and things we don’t understand. Sometimes life is not fair. God is not just going to bring you through; He’s going to bring you out better, refreshed, renewed, reenergized.
Get this down in your spirit: you’re not going to look like what you’ve been through. You’re going to look like who you are: blessed, prosperous, talented, successful, healthy, whole, victorious.

Nothing that’s coming against you is going to keep you from your destiny. Nothing you’ve been through is going to hinder your future. All of it is setting you up for God to show out in your life.
When you feel like you’re surrounded, you have to come back to that place of peace and say, “I know my God is still on the throne. He’s bigger than this opposition, greater than this sickness, more powerful than these enemies.”
Don’t fight battles with small-minded people. They are not between you and your destiny. If you get engaged in that conflict, you’ll miss who you were created to be.
Don’t put a question mark where God put a period. When you quit putting energy into your history, and instead you put it into your destiny, then God will give you beauty for the ashes.
When you’re in peace, you’re in a position of power. Check out "Protect Your Peace" on Podcast here!
The scripture says, “God inhabits our praises.” That means praise brings God on the scene. Begging doesn’t move God. Complaining doesn’t sway Him, but praise causes the Creator of the Universe to show up.
With his mother, Mary Magdalene witnesses the torment of the crucifixion at the foot of the cross. But her faith is rewarded the most when she is the first to witness the seemingly unbelievable: His resurrection. Make sure to tune in this Monday on @HISTORY. #JesusHisLife
What God has stored up for you will be perfect for your life. Celebrate the successes of others knowing that God blessing them is not going to stop what God has for you.
Don’t let other people ruin your day. You can’t stop it from happening, but you can keep it from getting on the inside. Don't miss "Protect Your Peace" from Joel on Podcast!
You may be lonely for a season, but God will give you new friends, better friends, people that will feed your faith, not pull you down. If you don’t get rid of the wrong people, you’ll never meet the right people.
If somebody left you, you have to realize their part in your story is over. If they walked away, then you don’t need them. If God allowed it, then that means they’re not a part of your destiny.
Most of the things that come against us are simply distractions. If that battle is not between you and your destiny, you should ignore it. Be inspired by this message from Joel, “Protect Your Peace”. Get it here:
When God laid out the plan for your life, He put in it everything you need to fulfill your destiny. He’s already lined up the right people, the right breaks, favor and increase. Psalm 31:19 says, “You have stored up great blessings for those who honor You.”
As good as the people are in your life, there are no perfect people. There is no perfect boss, no perfect friend, no perfect neighbor, no perfect spouse. Give people room to be human. Quit expecting them to perform perfectly all the time.
Are you distracted fighting battles that don’t matter and they're keeping you from the ones that do matter? You have to learn to walk away from things. Click here to listen to, "Protect Your Peace”:
Here’s a key: your happiness is not somebody else’s responsibility. You are responsible for your own happiness.
If you’re going to reach your destiny, you have to get good at ignoring things. Ignore negative comments, ignore insults, ignore the naysayers. They are distractions trying to keep you from God’s best.
The journey continues tonight. I am excited to share Jesus’ story as you tune in to #JesusHisLife tonight at 8/7c on @HISTORY.
At the start of the day, you need to decide that no matter what comes your way, you’re not going to get upset. You need to make up your mind to stay in peace. Get this encouraging message from Joel, "Protect Your Peace":
It’s not about winning the fight. Walking away from battles that don’t matter is not weak; that takes a strong person. That’s a mark of honor.
There may be people you see every day that have the gift of getting on your nerves. The good news is you’re in control. They can’t make you unhappy unless you allow them to.
As pressure builds to execute Jesus, Pilate’s wife, inspired by a prophetic nightmare, urges him to leave Jesus alone. Instead, Pilate sends him away to be crucified, and publicly washes his hands of responsibility.   Make sure to tune in this Monday on @HISTORY. #JesusHisLife
The way to honor God is to go out each day with passion, being your best, pursuing what He put in your heart. Don’t get stuck in the potholes of life. Watch Joel’s new message this morning on Podcast! "Protect Your Peace":
God is your vindicator. He will make up for the wrongs that were done to you. If you will stay in peace, stay on the high road, God will vindicate you better than you can vindicate yourself.
We look at things logically, but God is a supernatural God. He specializes in exceeding our expectations. What He has planned for you is bigger, more rewarding, more fulfilling than you’ve dreamed.
Life is too short to waste another day being upset. It’s not always easy to get over it, but the pain of letting it go is less than the pain of holding on and missing your destiny.
We all go through unfair situations and things we don’t understand. If that were going to keep you from your destiny, God would never have allowed it. Don’t use it as an excuse to settle. Stir up what God put on the inside and you’ll go places that you've never dreamed.
What prompted one of Jesus’ closest friends to turn on him remains one of the Bible’s great mysteries, one explored as Jesus and his disciples enter Jerusalem for Passover and what will become the Last Supper. Make sure to tune in this Monday on @HISTORY. #JesusHisLife
People don’t have the final say; people don’t control your destiny. They can’t see the favor on your life. Don’t let them talk you out of your dreams. Check out "Declare Favor" on Podcast here!

The enemy meant it for your harm. He’d love to convince you to live discouraged, not pursing your dreams, thinking it’s never going to work out. Don’t believe those lies. It’s setting you up for new levels of your destiny.
#JesusHisLife explores the story of Jesus Christ through a unique lens: the people in his life who were closest to him. Make sure to tune in this Monday on @HISTORY channel at 7pm CT.
