Joel Osteen Quotes.
Sometimes you need faith and victory spoken over your life. Words have created power. When you receive them into your spirit, they can ignite seeds of increase on the inside.

I just think that trusting God means we’re going to have unanswered questions, and God is so much bigger than us, we’re never going to understand them all.
Encouragement to others is something everyone can give. Somebody needs what you have to give. It may not be your money; it may be your time. It may be your listening ear. It may be your arms to encourage. It may be your smile to uplift. Who knows?
Every setback means you’re one step closer to seeing the dream come to pass.

When you face difficult times, know that challenges are not sent to destroy you. They’re sent to promote, increase and strengthen you.
