Joel Osteen Ministries Featuring: Realign Your Focus to Stay on Course | Victoria Osteen and Unity of Faith




The Bible states, “let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us” (Hebrews 12:1). If you want to stay on the best path for your life, when you get up every day, ask yourself, “Am I honoring God in the decisions that I’m making? Am I setting right priorities every single day?” These will realign and refocus you. You have to evaluate your life and be willing to change. You will never get away from temptations and distractions, but with God’s help, you can overcome them!


Unity of Faith



Ephesians 4:11-13
Till we all come in the unity of the faith. What this scripture means is simply this: If we’re ever going to become truly powerful in the kingdom of God, if we’re ever going to be any great threat to the devil, we’re going to have to grow up—together.
It won’t be enough for just a few of us to grow up on our own and say, “Too bad” about everyone else. It doesn’t work that way. We’re a part of each other. The Bible calls us one body...the Body of Christ.
Let me give you an example. When I began teaching God’s revelation on the laws of prosperity, I started getting an amazing amount of flack. Preachers started calling me and chewing me out because I wouldn’t borrow money and things like that. Finally God said to me one day in prayer, Don’t teach on the laws of prosperity anymore until I tell you to.
“Why not?” I asked.
There’s strife in the camp, He told me. Other preachers are mad at you and in strife over it.
I didn’t realize then that the level where we stopped would affect us all. I didn’t realize that even I wouldn’t be able to go on and operate in the additional laws of prosperity until the rest of the Body would go with me.
We’re not islands unto ourselves. I can’t do anything without affecting you. You can’t do anything without affecting me. We’re joined together by God but held together by one another (Ephesians 4:16). We can only grow up…together!
Learn to walk in love. Refuse to fall prey to division and isolation. Feed on the Word daily and encourage your brothers and sisters by feeding it to them too, so we can all grow up to be “a perfect [or mature] man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ.”
Scripture Reading:
1 Corinthians 12:13-28
