Sermon for today by Joel osteen: DON’T LIMIT GOD BY YOUR MIND, FINANCES, OR JOB


You can limit God by your mind. Sometimes we face life’s challenges and are determined to figure it all out on our own. We think, What in the world am I going to do? What in the world could God do for me? I’m all on my own on this, and
nobody’s going to help me. You get your mind all worked up, but it’s the carnal mind, which is enmity against God (Romans

Your carnal mind can’t see a way out, but our minds are finite. God is bigger than our minds. Whenever I think about living in the abundance of God, I think of Casey, who was a house mover down in Beaumont,
Texas, and a street evangelist for Jesus.

One day he and all his men went way out in the country to move a building. Some of
the men in his crew thought he was out of his mind because he was always talking about miracles. When he got way out in the
country, he pulled off on the shoulder of the highway and said,
“You know what, I’ve forgotten my chain. I have to have a chain to do this job.”

Because Casey was always talking about miracles, some of the men snickered and laughed and made fun of him behind
his back, wondering what he was going to do to get a chain.
Then Casey said, “Come up here, men. Let’s pray for a chain.”
They thought Casey was a nut case,praying for a chain.
Would God drop one out of heaven?
But Casey refused to limit God by his mind. When you walk with God, you know He can and will do anything to bring glory to His Name. So out there on the shoulder of the
highway, Casey lifted his hands and began to pray, “Oh, Lord Jesus, You know I forgot my chain. I’m sorry, but I forgot it, and I have to have a chain. We’re too far out here in the country to get a chain, and I don’t have time to go back to get one.

God, I need a chain. Oh, God, in the Name of Jesus, give me a chain.” Who would pray like that? How would God give Casey a
chain in the middle of nowhere? But as he was praying in the midst of his crew’s unbelief, a pickup truck came down the
highway going really fast and turned right.

As it turned, out of the back end of the truck rolled a chain, and it came to rest
curled up right at Casey’s feet!
Don’t limit God. God is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that you ask or think.
Don’t limit God by your finances either, for God is able to increase your finances. You say, “Well, I want to do something
for the world. I want to do something for my family.” Don’t limit God by your paycheck. Don’t limit God by your job. God is bigger than your checkbook and your job.
