Rank #5: Empty Out the Negative - Joel Osteen

The problem is that when we allow them in, they take up space for the good things that should be there.In this message, Joel will show you how your life is like a container that God created to be filled with joy, peace, confidence, creativity and much more!

Rank #6: The Power of the Blood - Joel Osteen
In the Old Testament, the only way to have forgiveness for sins was to sacrifice an animal. Without the shedding of blood, there was no remission for sin. But Jesus came and shed His blood as a final covering for our sins. Second Corinthians 5:19 says, “God restored the world to Himself, no longer counting your sins against you. He has blotted them out.”Because of Jesus, we have freedom and forgiveness today!

Joel wants to show you how to face these night seasons with hope and the right attitude. Our night seasons always lead us to the amazing things God has in store for our future. The Psalmist said in Psalm 112:4, “When darkness overtakes the righteous, light will come bursting in.” You can have hope during your darkest hours. Don’t let the night seasons convince you that you’ve seen your best days. You wouldn’t be alive if God didn’t have something amazing in front of you. Without the night seasons, we wouldn’t become everything we were created to be.

Rank #13: You Have a Defender - Joel Osteen
Has someone judged you, spread rumors or hurt you? Our human nature naturally wants to set the record straight and prove that those who’ve wronged us are wrong. But all this does is take up valuable energy and can keep us from being everything God has created us to be. Instead, God wants to be your defender. In Jeremiah 51:36, God says to us, “I will defend you. I will be your lawyer. I will plead your case.” Let Joel teach you how to let things bounce off of you. You don’t have to defend yourself.

That’s why we have to walk by faith and not by sight.People may tell you that you’ll never get well, circumstances may look like you’ll never get out of debt, never meet the right person, or never accomplish your dreams. But if you listen with your spiritual ears, you’ll hear a voice saying, “Healing is coming. You will lend and not borrow. New doors are about to open.” In a drought, God will talk to you about rain. In lack, He’ll talk to you about abundance. When you feel insignificant, like you’ll never make anything out of your life, He’ll talk to you about greatness.When you get in agreement with God then you will become what He says about you. You will have what He says you’ll have!
Rank #19: Knowing You Are Loved - Joel Osteen

Psalm 138:8 promises us that “God will work out His plan for your life.” You don’t have to work it out. You don’t have to make it all happen in your own strength and fight all of your battles. God knows what’s best for you. Instead of living life frustrated, you can live contented and restful, trusting in God’s timing.
