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

Peace be unto you.

      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
