Joyce Meyer’s Daily 14 March 2018 Devotional

Joyce Meyer’s Daily 14 March 2018 Devotional

Topic: Does Your Inside Match Your Outside? [Joyce Meyer’s Daily Wednesday March 14th, 2018]

nor will people say, ‘Look! Here it is!’ or, ‘There it is!’ For the kingdom of God is among you [because of My presence].” — Luke 17:21

Sometimes we wish for things to change but are unwilling to do what it takes to make things better.

There was a time in my life when I was always upset about my circumstances. I wanted God to change them for me, and I wanted Him to change the people around me too. But then He showed me that I needed to work on changing my inner life before I could expect real change in my outer life. Joyce Meyer’s Daily 14 March 2018 Devotional

Matthew 6:33 (NLT) says, Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.

So what is God’s kingdom? The Bible says the kingdom of God is in us. If you’ve accepted Christ, that means He’s living in you—and He wants to live in a good spiritual home. That’s why your inner life is so important to God.

We must seek first His kingdom, letting His Holy Spirit take hold of us on the inside. When we allow Him to work in us, eventually we won’t be able to contain it, and it will spill out and change the world around us! Joyce Meyer’s Daily 14 March 2018 Devotional

Joyce Meyer Prayer For Today

Holy Spirit, help me not to get caught up in trying to change external things when You’re asking me to focus on developing Your kingdom in my heart. I invite You to work in my inner life.

Joyce Meyer’s Daily 11 March 2018 Devotional: Wait with Patience

Joyce Meyer’s Daily 11 March 2018 Devotional

Topic: Wait with Patience [Joyce Meyer’s Daily Sunday March 11th, 2018]

But the fruit of the [Holy] Spirit [the work which His presence within accomplishes] is love, joy (gladness), peace, patience (an even temper, forbearance), kindness, goodness (benevolence), faithfulness. — Galatians 5:22

We all want change at times in our lives, but we don’t always want to go through the process it takes to get there. It usually takes longer than we think it should, and there are always periods of waiting along the way. The question is, are we going to wait the wrong or right way? If we wait the wrong way, we’ll be miserable; but if we decide to wait God’s way, we can become patient and actually enjoy the wait.

Joyce Meyer’s Daily 11 March 2018 Devotional

It takes practice, but as we let God help us in each situation, we develop patience, which is one of the most important Christian virtues. Patience is a fruit of the Spirit. It’s developed only under trial, so we must not run from difficult situations. Because as we develop patience, the Bible says we finally feel completely satisfied—lacking nothing (see James 1:2-4).

Even our relationship with God involves progressive changes. We learn to trust Him in a deeper way by going through many experiences that require us to wait longer than we’d like.

Trust me, the waiting may be hard, but it will make you stronger. The benefits that patience brings are certainly worth any uncomfortable wait! Joyce Meyer’s Daily 11 March 2018 Devotional

Prayer Starter: God, I want to change and grow deeper in my relationship with You. I understand this means developing patience, but I know I will grow stronger as You develop patience in me.

Joyce Meyer’s Daily 9 March 2018 Devotional: Praise God in Your Prison

Joyce Meyer’s Daily 9 March 2018 Devotional

Topic: Praise God in Your Prison [Joyce Meyer’s Daily Friday March 9th, 2018]

He who believes in Me [who adheres to, trusts in, and relies on Me], as the Scripture has said, ‘From his innermost being will flow continually rivers of living water.’ — John 7:38

Joyce Meyer’s Daily 9 March 2018 Devotional

Sometimes we find ourselves in such horrible messes that it’s hard to imagine waiting one more second for relief and release. But we need to keep waiting on God and trusting Him with a sweet and simple faith. Then, in a way we never could’ve figured out—God moves suddenly!

Paul and Silas knew about waiting, and they waited well. Acts 16 tells the story of how they were attacked by a crowd, beaten and thrown in jail. Verse 24 says the jailer put them into the inner prison (the dungeon) and fastened their feet in the stocks. Paul and Silas didn’t seem to mind—they just decided to start singing and began to worship the Lord. They began to wait on God.

Suddenly, God sent an earthquake that opened the prison doors and loosed their chains. He set them free!

When people patiently and expectantly wait on God in the midst of horrible circumstances, suddenly God breaks through. So don’t give up! Don’t stop believing! Stay full of hope and expectation. God’s power is limitless, and He’ll break through for you.

Prayer Starter: God, no matter how bad my messes get, I choose to praise You in my prison. I know You will come through for me, and You may move “suddenly” when the timing is right to set me free.
