The Twenty-First Day - Joel Osteen

2017-08-12 | 🔗
The Psalmist said in Psalm 56:9, “The moment you pray, the tide of the battle turns.” In the unseen realm, God begins to change things in your favor the moment you pray. But many times, when we’ve been praying for a long time for something, and don’t see anything happening in the natural, it can seem like God went on vacation and our prayers aren’t doing any good. Joel wants to show you that even when you can’t see behind the scenes, God is at work. He not only heard you when you prayed, but He took it one step further; He put the miracle in motion.Just because you don’t see anything happening doesn’t mean the answer is not on the way. The people that see breakthroughs and promises fulfilled are the people that keep praying, keep believing and keep standing in faith. This message will inspire and equip you to be one of those people!

fasting for a long time asking god for hill day after day didn't seem like it was doing any good nothing was changing but one morning then was out at a river he saw a vision an angel appeared to him he said in verse twelve daniel since the first day you begin to pray your request was heard in heaven i will sit with the answer but for torrent one days the prince of persia blocked me then michael archangel came to help me break through the opposition noticed the first time daniel prayed god here the first time he prayed god sent the angel with the answer like with daniel the first time you prayed god big to change things in your favour he began to move out the wrong people line up the right people array
healing good breaks favour its right up in front of you what's the delay what's taken it so long there are forces trying to keep you from your healing keep you from your abundance keep from your freedom the good news is the forces before you are greater than the forces that are against you it took the angel twenty one days to get to daniel what you're playing about may be taken along you don't say anything improving you think it's never going to happen now get ready you're twenty first day is come the angel has already been dispensed god is already since the healing it's already cynthia vindication already sent the promotion right now the angel is fighting through the forces of darkness every time you thank god that is on the way
every time you say lord i believe my healing is coming i believe the right person is i believe a new level is coming when you stay faith you know what's happening the angel getting closer is as a matter of time before that shows i talked to a young man it struggle with an addiction most of his life he's in his late twenties he started listening to our messages about how god wants you to be free and how you created deliver victorious lie every day he started praying asking god to help him he would make declaration i am free i am whole this addiction doesn't control me month after month praying believing declaring the promises but nothing was any better he went to rehab and that didn't help he could have thought
this is my lot in life i'll always be addicted but from the time you pray till the time the answer comes that's called the trial of your fate that's when it's easy to get discouraged and give up its easy to talk yourself out of it i try i did my best is never going to happen no keep playing keep believing it may not have happened yet but what guy promise to he still going to bring to pass that twenty first day is on the way this is what this young man did about two months ago after being addicted for years he woke up one morning and had no desire for the drugs when his friends came over and started smoking it made him sick to his stomach he said joy i can explain i didn't do anything differently i didn't try to gradually cut suddenly the addiction was broken
suddenly he came in to his twenty first that you may have struggled with an addiction for a long time but that addiction has a twenty first day you're healy you're abundance has a twenty first day god is already set the time to turn it around when you come into you twenty first day every force detailed you back we'll be broken but when we have struggled in an area for a long time it's easy to accept it and think maybe i'm not supposed to accomplish this dream i tried it didn't work out i've been single a long time maybe i'm not supposed to get married but i've had this depression for years maybe i'm not supposed to be happy know that may have been your past but that is not your future god is about to break stubborn things strongholds that look permanent you've dealt with for years those for
that have held you bad luck with daniel god sit michael to assist him god is going to sin reinforcements too loose to lose what belongs to you suddenly it's going to turn around suddenly the depression is going to break suddenly your business is going to take off what happened you came in to your twenty first day it's closer than you think you're close to your healy you're close to meeting the right person you're close to a new level now don't give up on what you believe in full it may be taken a long time but what you can't see is the angel is on the way your torrent first day could be this week be this month what if you knew your tour first day was next friday you would quit worrying and you would start
we're shipping you quit being discouraged and you start they can go no thank you that is on the way thank you for your goodness thank you that your work in my life david said each morning bring request before god and wait expectantly he didn't just pray and say ok i did my part he prayed and then waited with expectation he went through the day lookin for god to goodness believe in por favor talking like it was going to happen not i'll never defeat this giant the cup biggie is twice marseilles i don't have a chance david had a report a victory he looked at goliar and said this day i will defeat you and feed your head to the birds of the air expected favor he said surely goodness mercy follows me every that i'd go he would say it in effect i'm no majority for days come
i know the angel is on the way the forces that are for me are greater than the forces that are against me what am i saying it's not enough to join pray you have to follow it up with expectancy with a knowing their not only heard you because you prayed according to his will but that he despatched the angel with the answer and i'm nuts that is going to happen in three weeks god has is timetable the twinning one days is symbolic it means there is a set time for god to break through with the answer to your prayer no person can stop him no addiction no sickness all the forces of this cannot stop what god has ordained for your life i believe even right now as faith is rising holes are being broken problem
is about displaying for dreams or back to come to pass addictions depend sean sicknesses are leaving god is going to make things happen that you could make happen you're going to know you came in to your twenty first day well yes i do this all sounds good it is encouraging but i believe is going to happen for me i don't believe that just because you said something anything is going to change then this is for you this is possible first this is where people have no god is in control that he set the miracle into both the angels on the way that the twenty fourth day has come one i ordered some custom running shoes online when i click to purchase is there was a afford a six week delivery times couple hours are received email with a compromise sure number where i rocket track the order you can go on the companies
site any time and fund the status and the first couple of weeks when i tracked it it said in production the shoes were being about a week later are received another email that said that they had been shit this time when i went online to check the status it said in transit i didn't know where the shoes i didn't know when they were going to be delivered all our new is that they were on the way i didn't worry about how they had been shipped what route they had chosen the shoes could have been made overseas put on a plan in the new york city put on a truck down here to houston went to the main post office the routing didn't concern me why anew the you said my name on them i had a
confirmation number it was just a matter of time before they were going to show up in a couple of days there was a knock on the door and there were the shoes when god puts a promise in your heart you don't know how it's going to happen you don't what route god is going to choose you don't the exact time but what you do know is you have a confirmation number so to speak you can find a promise in the scripture god you said you would restore health back into me you said i would lend and not bar you said our children will be mighty in the lane you said you'd give beauty for these ashes when you let the promised take root in effect god put your name on it if you could check that promise on your computer what you would see is in transit on the way
you don't have to worry about how it's going to be delivered what route god is going to use when it's going to happen god knows give it to you what has your name on it is headed your way no disrespect to fedex or you p s but they can make a mistake but god does it make mistakes his delivery service is one hundred percent accurate and it we'll be one hundred percent on tat if you we'll stay in favour if you will keep believing what belongs to you will come to you at the exact right in some of the things you think will never happen been too long the city has gotten too bad if you could check the promise on the heavenly compute you wouldn't see cancelled
this regard too late you would see on schedule on time to be delivered it's not too late you haven't made too many mistakes you haven't miss too many opportunities god put the promise in your heart it has your name on it and god doesn't change his mind he's not who by negative circumstances how long you been but who doesn't like you has your name on it god is going to bring to you the psalmist said god blessings stored up for the righteous there healing with your name on theirs maybe a spouse with your name on them there is a business abundant with your name on it here's the beauty we didn't have to pay for god sent his son to pay the price that we could live in abundance face feel victorious lie why don't you start believing for what all
he belongs to you god has some twenty first days do not singular god has blessings stored up with a righteous when you are tempted to git discourage give up on what you believing for go get your confirmation number i find the promise god you said i can do things do christ you said strong in the lord so father thank you that strength is in transit thank you that breakthrough are in transit the reason you need you formation number the reason you need the promise is god is not obligated to bring the past what we say but he is obligated to bring the past what he says when you can say god you said as for me in my house we will solve the law you believe in for a child god you sit in psalms you would make me they're happy mother of children when you
remind god what he said you to see some twenty first days goddess for his words god kept a promise to david hundreds of years after david had died god without he's gone you'll never know but goddesses so true to what he said three written five years after david had died one of his real this was on the throne not making good decisions god sit in effect i would have taken the throne but for david sake i will not do it that's how committed god is to what he promise magic what happens when god hears you pray in the promises declaring the promises thanking him for the promises i can imagine that when heaven comes to attention that's when god says the michael go down there and break through the forces of darkness give them what their what about they believe i will do what our promise
there was a salesman going door to door selling vacuum cleaners he came a house and a young man entered the door the salesman went through his which the young man said sir i don't need a vacuum cleaner anita kidney i'm waiting for a transplant there were five hundred people in line front of him the salesman said i understand i'm sorry to bother you he turn d as you walking away something said to him so strongly you need to give that young man a kidney sent you to this house for a reason not to sell a vacuum but to give him his help right there standing and the front long he called his wife and ask what she thought him donating a kidney she was funny called is dead he was born ten minutes later we back to the door told the young man let's go see a doctor i want to give you a kidney it just so happens he was a perfect match donated the kid
today both men healthy saw what am i saying that young man made realized there was a kidney with name on it and it was already in trans god no what you need and he knows how to get it to you you don't have to figure out how gods going to do it the scripture says lean not to your own understanding you try to figure it out you gonna get confused when we were turned about proper to build a new sanctuary everything fell through i was disappointed i didn't see how it could work at i thought we were stuff but i was thinking why natural ordinary god was thinking supernatural extraordinary what i couldn't see is the compact sinner displays
in transit and it had our name on it it was more than i could ever ask earthy what god brings you it may not be exactly what you thought the way you thought but i and tell you first tan what god has in store will be bigger better more rewarding did you ever imagine don't put got in a box you may not see how it can happen the medical report is not good you don't have finances the connections god has to do it that you ve never thought david used a sling shot to defeat july he didn't have the training the experience vehicle but a slingshot with the favor of god is more powerful then a whole army without this young man probably never dreamed somebody would come knocking on his door to give him a kidney
if you knew all the things that are in train it for you right now all that is that not only have your name on them but already on the way you wouldn't leave worried wondered if he's gonna happen frustrated because you didn't get the promotion when your time when you come into your twenty first day promotion will come to you the kid level are you a compact centre come to you you single people the husband what they'll come to you quit worrying there are in transit they're right on schedule and do good lookin ok if i escaped her but i like it but why are you waiting for the promised why are you waiting for the twenty first day do your part keep brain keep believing keep expecting too often we give up on what we believe in for
