Today’s Message: Joel Osteen 22 September 2022 Devotional
Some people are experts at putting their demands on you and trying to keep you doing and saying what makes them happy.
They play upon a false sense of responsibility and thinking that says, “I’ve got to keep them fixed and cheered up. I have to call every day or they’ll get upset.
If I show them how much I care, they’ll be my friend.” You need to know that the only thing you really owe people is to love them. That doesn’t mean you have to keep everyone happy or let people put their demands on you.
That’s carrying a debt you don’t owe. Always be respectful and kind, but if you go through life trying to please everyone, the one person who won’t be happy is you. Come out from under that debt.
If people are controlling you, it’s not their fault; it’s yours. You have to make a change and have a boldness to follow what’s in your heart. Go the extra mile, but don’t be a people pleaser.
A Prayer For Today
“Father, thank You for the love that You have put in my heart and for the love You want me to share with others.
Help me to recognize when others are trying to make me feel responsible for keeping them happy and meeting their expectations. I will go the extra mile but not be a people pleaser. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
