Many people today live overworked on the outside with no inner peace on the inside. It’s easy to want to fix things on our own, but Joel wants to show you that you don’t have to live life doing things in your own strength. This message will teach you how to have an outer rest and an inner rest as you let God work in your life and fight your battles.
There is a seat of rest that has your name on it, and it’s time for you to rest. Enter into God’s rest!
My favorite quotes from this message:
“We are frustrated because we are trying to change things that only God can change, you can’t make people do what’s right, you can pray for them, you can encourage them, but they have their own free will. Don’t let them steal your joy! You are not responsible for other peoples happiness, you can not keep everyone in your life happy. You are only responsible for your own happiness.” – Joel Osteen
“I’ve learned that some people don’t want to be happy, they just want you attention, they want you to cater to them and want you to come running every time they call. If you don’t they will try to make you feel guilty for meeting all their demands, but what they really want is to control you. Don’t fall into that trap! You have a destiny to fulfill, you have an assignment!” – Joel Osteen
“I can’t become who I’m created to be, if I’m trying to please everyone that’s around me” – Joel Osteen
