  2. My Great Jehovah; thank You for this word; so encouraging, fit just for me and confirming some spoken word's from Great Jehovah; Hallelujah glory to Your Mighty Name; may you be richly blessed, favored, and used by Great Jehovah; Pastor Joel Osteen, I just love how you humble yourself for Great Jehovah to use you for His Glory; Amen

  3. Then Jesus said unto His disciples, “If any man will come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me. Matthew 16:24

    Just because you have a dream doesn't mean it's a godly desire. This message is baby talk and he's turned Scriptures into a motivational speech. Scripture points to Christ not to ourselves. If you are a believer your best life isn't now, it's we are resurrected in the life to come (Christ's return). Consider carefully his selection bias of Scriptures, he pulls phrases and defines the meaning for himself without context.

    Consider the life of the apostles- you think they were prosperous in the eyes of the world?

    From Hebrews 11:

    32 And what more shall I say? I do not have time to tell about Gideon, Barak, Samson and Jephthah, about David and Samuel and the prophets, 33 who through faith conquered kingdoms, administered justice, and gained what was promised; who shut the mouths of lions, 34 quenched the fury of the flames, and escaped the edge of the sword; whose weakness was turned to strength; and who became powerful in battle and routed foreign armies. 35 Women received back their dead, raised to life again. There were others who were tortured, refusing to be released so that they might gain an even better resurrection. 36 Some faced jeers and flogging, and even chains and imprisonment. 37 They were put to death by stoning;[e] they were sawed in two; they were killed by the sword. They went about in sheepskins and goatskins, destitute, persecuted and mistreated— 38 the world was not worthy of them. They wandered in deserts and mountains, living in caves and in holes in the ground.39 These were all commended for their faith, yet none of them received what had been promised, 40 since God had planned something better for us so that only together with us would they be made perfect.

    You think these faithful people of God dreamed about wandering in deserts, being sawed in two, being tortured? Is your hope in what God can do in this life or the rewards that Christ promised in the life to come (for a faithful Christian life in response to the free gift of salvation through faith in Him)?

    Joel says we have seeds of greatness in us- how does that match the following verse?:
    But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. 2 Corinthians 4:7
