The 4 Major Lessons I Have Learned From Pastor Joel Osteen

Published

on

Joel Osteen, one of the wealthiest and most influential preachers in the world, is my favorite pastor. He is well known for his inspiring and moving sermons. I’ve watched his sermons for almost two years and this is what I’ve learned from him.

  1. Never force someone to love you.

Pastor Osteen encourages us to stop hanging on people that are not attracted to us. He also urges us to stop begging for our exes’ love since he believes that moving on provides room for the new, God-chosen person to show up.

  1. Always trust the faithfulness of God

Joel Osteen teaches that God knows all our needs, and he will always provide them. He gives us our desires and participates in their fulfilling. The only thing we have to do is to work hard and trust that he will provide.

  1. We must always encourage ourselves.

Joel Osteen encourages us to stop focusing on our failures and start concentrating on what worked out. He preaches that we must remember the times we prayed to God and he answered our prayers immediately.

Joel teaches that we’ll never be defeated if we constantly remember God’s goodness. Besides this, he teaches us that in difficult times, we must remind ourselves that we are God’s children and we have the power to overcome anything that appears to be a barrier to our progress.

  1. Run your own race

Joel Osteen teaches that we are unhappy because we like comparing ourselves to others. He believes comparison leads to stress because some people will always be better than us. He, therefore, urges us to quit comparing ourselves to others and run our own race.

“At our 20s we wonder what everybody thinks about us, at 40 we don’t care what anybody thinks about us. At sixty we realize nobody thinks about us.” – Joel Osteen

      yap, true indeed….Read the book, THE DEATH OF IVAN LLYCH BY LEO TOLSTOY. On his bed Ivan llych regretted wasting his life by listening to other people’s opinions because this made him fail to do what he was meant to do

Why Our Prayers Are Ineffective

Why Our Prayers Are Ineffective

Recently, I discovered that most people’s prayers are ineffective. I thus meditated on prayer, studied what many great thinkers wrote about prayer, and discovered the reasons why our prayers are ineffective.

Firstly, I realized that our prayers are ineffective because our minds are never silent. Many spiritual teachers believe the Creator usually talks to us after we pray, but we never hear the message because we are always thinking about our problems, the future, the past, and so on. We can only hear the Creator’s message regarding our prayers when we silence our minds. For as Rumi said, ‘the quieter you become, the more you are able to hear.’

Secondly, it dawned on me that our prayers are ineffective because our emotions and thoughts seldom align with what we pray for. For instance, we sometimes think deeply about our inability to become prosperous after praying for prosperity. Or, we sometimes continue worrying about the future despite praying to God to bless it.

The thoughts and emotions we embrace after prayer matter because we often attract what we deeply think and feel. Therefore, it’s difficult for our prayers to be answered if our thoughts and feelings align with what we don’t want.

Thirdly, our prayers are ineffective because we make decisions and take actions that don’t align with what we’ve prayed for. For instance, after praying for riches, most of us embrace laziness and make decisions that lead to poverty. As well, we avoid taking risks, and we fear taking the path that leads to riches despite fasting and praying hard for riches.

Fourthly, our prayers are ineffective because we are never alert for answers. After praying for something, most of us either forget about the prayer or focus on why the prayer is not getting answered. From my research on prayer, I learned that spiritual masters are usually alert for answers after praying. They constantly analyze their experiences since they believe they’ll find the answers to their prayers in their experiences.

In conclusion, although I believe action is bigger than prayer, I also believe prayers are effective because the Creator is a conscious being that can hear and answer our prayers. Moreover, the fact that many ancient cultures believed in prayer – despite living far away from each other – makes me believe that prayer works. Therefore, I think most of our prayers are ineffective because we haven’t mastered the art of prayer.

Anyway, I believe these are not the only reasons for ineffective prayers. You are thus free to provide more reasons in the comment box below.
