Joel osteen ‘s sermon for today : HUMBLE YOURSELF UNDER GOD’S MIGHTY HAND


Search the Scriptures and read biographies, and you discover that many great men and women of God have spent
years doing insignificant tasks that God asked themto do.

The Bible encourages us to not despise the day of small beginnings (Zechariah 4:10). When you prove yourself faithful to God in
the little things, He will trust you with much. “He who is faithful in what is least is faithful also in much; and he who is
unjust in what is least is unjust also in much” (Luke 16:10).

In the book of Acts, the number of disciples increased, and there arose a problemwith serving tables and the
distribution of clothing and food. The apostles felt that they should give themselves continually to prayer and the
preaching of the Word of God; therefore, they appointed seven men to handle the food and clothing.

“Then the twelve summoned the multitude of the disciples and said, ‘It is not
desirable that we should leave the word of God and serve tables. Therefore, brethren, seek out from among you seven
men of good reputation, full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business’ ” (Acts 6:2–3).

These seven men were not just ordinary men. The Bible states they were full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom. They were
powerful men, and yet they were chosen to serve tables and distribute clothing. These men could have said, “Look, I amnot
called to serve tables. God called me to preach.” They could have had an exaggerated opinion of their importance, but they were faithful to do what needed to be done.

God will bless people who are willing to take a lower position in the eyes of men. He will exalt the humble.
“Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God,that He may exalt you in due time” (1 Peter 5:6).
It was not long before one of the seven men began to shine. Stephen became a powerful preacher, who did great
wonders and miracles among the people.

The Bible says that no one was able to resist the wisdomand the Spirit by which
he spoke (Acts 6:8–10). Soon Stephen was arrested and taken to the Jewish council, but everyone who looked at himsaw that
his face was shining like the face of an angel.
