Bible Inspiration March 17, 2018 by Joyce Meyer : Perseverance Pays

Bible Inspiration March 17, 2018 by Joyce Meyer

And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or farms for My name’s sake will receive many times as much, and will inherit eternal life.

— Matthew 19:29

TOPIC – Perseverance Pays – by Joyce Meyer MARCH 17, 2018

In the early years when we were building our ministry, Dave and I went through a lot of difficult tests. I needed to work on my attitude. We needed to work on our marriage and how we handled money.

For six years I bought my socks and underwear at garage sales. We were totally broke—and I was teaching about God’s abundant provision in our lives!

Not only that, it just wasn’t popular for women to preach back then. We lost friends and had family members who didn’t want anything to do with us.

It was just hard, and sometimes I wanted to quit. But today I am so glad I stuck with God because there are people all over the world who have been helped because of our ministry.

Scripture tells us in Matthew 19 that we will have to leave “important” things behind for the sake of following Him. We didn’t have everything we thought we needed back then, but the trade-off ended up being more than worth it.

Prayer for today –   Joyce Meyer

Persevere in your walk with God, even when it’s hard. Stay focused on Him, and it will all pay off when you experience the victory He has for you. Bible Inspiration March 17, 2018 by Joyce Meyer

Joyce Meyer’s Daily Friday March 16th, 2018

Joyce Meyer’s Daily Friday, March 16th, 2018

Topic: Does God Prefer Polyester or Denim? [Joyce Meyer’s Daily Friday, March 16th, 2018]

But the LORD said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature because I have rejected him. For the LORD sees not as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.” — 1 Samuel 16:7

I used to be so judgmental about the way some people dressed. I used to think that I shouldn’t wear jeans while I was teaching at a conference, but my son said to me, “Do you really think that God anoints polyester more than denim?”

It took some things like that to shock me into the realization that I was just holding on to a religious attitude when God wanted me to freshen up my look in order to reach more people.

Sure, it’s good to dress nicely when we go to church. But the bottom line is, we shouldn’t be so focused on the outward appearance that we lose sight of our main goal: developing a close, personal relationship with God.

Joyce Meyer’s Daily Friday, March 16th, 2018

God simply wants us to fellowship with Him, which means communicating with Him throughout our day just like we do with someone who’s our close friend or family member. He doesn’t care about the outward appearance…only real relationship.

Spend time with Him, being grateful for what He’s done and is doing in your life. Have a real relationship with Him.

Prayer for today Joyce Meyer

God, help me to have Your attitude about outward appearance. Help me not to judge others who don’t dress the way I think they should, and help me develop a strong inner relationship with You.

Joyce Meyer’s Daily 15 March 2018 Devotional: Prudence

Joyce Meyer’s Daily 15 March 2018 Devotional: Prudence

Topic: Prudence [Joyce Meyer’s Daily Thursday March 15th, 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

A word we don’t hear much about today is prudence. It means “careful management: economy.”

In the Bible, prudence, or prudent, means “being good stewards or managers of the gifts God has given us to use.” Those gifts include time, energy, strength and health—even material possessions. They include our bodies, as well as our minds and spirits.

Just as each one of us has been given a different set of gifts, each of us has been given different levels of ability to manage those gifts. Joyce Meyer’s Daily 15 March 2018 Devotional: Prudence

Too many people burn themselves out, constantly using their gifts and abilities in ways that God did not intend them to. Instead of pushing ourselves too hard to please others or reach our own personal goals, we need to listen to God and do what He’s telling us is wise.

Trying to impress people and live up to their standards isn’t prudence. Prudence means asking God how He wants you to use your gifts and then obeying. Learn God’s prudence today and put it into practice so you can enjoy your life the way He intended.

Prayer for today by Joyce Meyer

God, I desire to be good steward of all that You’ve given me. I decide now to only use my gifts and abilities for You. Show me how to use them with Your prudence and wisdom

Joyce Meyer’s Daily 8 March 2018 Devotional

Joyce Meyer’s Daily 8 March 2018 Devotional

Topic: Keep the River Flowing [Joyce Meyer’s Daily Thursday March 8th, 2018]

Moreover [let us also be full of joy now!] let us exult and triumph in our troubles and rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that pressure and affliction and hardship produce patient and unswerving endurance. — Romans 5:3 (AMPC)

As believers in Christ, the Holy Spirit lives in us, abiding in our spirits. He is the river of life within us. This river is a wonderful gift given to each of us by God. It flows with good health, a positive outlook on life, and a generous and forgiving attitude.

Many people, however, have allowed their river to become stopped-up. They are always discouraged, and no matter what they do, they can’t seem to snap out of it. Years of neglect have turned a once-powerful flowing river into a small stream. Do you know people like this? Does this sound like your life?

Joyce Meyer’s Daily 8 March 2018 Devotional

Until you’re able to get your river cleared out and unclogged, everything will be difficult, disappointing and unfulfilling. You’ll be unable to taste the water that satisfies like nothing else.

Make a choice today to stop spending your life fighting, struggling and trudging through the mud with every step. Ask God to help you clear out the debris. He’ll show you what’s blocking the flow and how to get rid of it. Then, enjoy the satisfying flow of the river of life!

Prayer Starter: God, I want to keep Your river of living water flowing in me. Show me what the debris is that’s blocking the way and then show me how to clear it out.

Joyce Meyer’s Daily 7 March 2018 Devotional -When Progress Is Slow

Joyce Meyer’s Daily 7 March 2018 Devotional

Topic: When Progress Is Slow [Joyce Meyer’s Daily Wednesday March 7th, 2018]

Truly my soul finds rest in God; my salvation comes from him. Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken. — Psalm 62:1-2 (NIV)

It’s important to renew our minds, but it’s also important to realize that this process of reprogramming or renewing our minds will take place little by little. Don’t be discouraged if progress seems slow, or when you have setbacks or bad days. Just get back up, dust yourself off and start again.

Joyce Meyer’s Daily 7 March 2018 Devotional

When a baby is learning to walk, he falls many, many times before he develops the ability to walk without falling; however, the baby is persistent. He may cry for a while after he falls down, but he always gets right back up and tries again.

Learning to change our thinking works the same way. We struggle and fall down, but God is always there to pick us up. Rather than get frustrated, remember to do what the Bible says and “triumph” in your hardship, because the very fact that you’re struggling means you’re fighting the good fight of faith.

There will be days when we don’t do everything right—days when our thinking is negative. But never stop trying. God is gradually bringing us around to His way of thinking, as long as we don’t give up!

Prayer Starter:  Joyce Meyer’s Daily 7 March 2018 Devotional

Lord, thank You for picking me up when I fall down. I know that when I’m struggling, You can work in me to help me overcome my negative mindsets and bring me more and more in line with Your way of thinking.

Topic: Don’t Let Yourself Snap [Joyce Meyer’s Daily Tuesday March 6th, 2018]

Truly my soul finds rest in God; my salvation comes from him. Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken. — Psalm 62:1-2 (NIV)

Joyce Meyer Devotional 6 March 2018

Has this ever happened to you: You break a rubber band while trying to stretch it around something. You can’t find another one, so you try to fix the broken one by tying the ends together.

Sometimes in our daily lives, we stretch ourselves beyond our capacity, and we snap like the rubber band. We think we’ve fixed the problem by simply tying the ends back together. But soon we fall into the same behavior that caused us to break down in the first place.

Over time with repeated exposure to stress, our lives begin to resemble that worn-out rubber band. It can completely deplete us.

Ignoring God’s laws and His ordained limits for our lives will ultimately cause burnout. You simply can’t continue to overwork your mind, emotions and body without eventually paying the price. But that’s not how God wants you to live.

Adjust your perspective to match God’s. Seek His peace and His pace for your life. Respect your body. Treat good health as a priceless gift. Don’t waste the energy God has given you on stress. Save it for living and enjoying life!

Prayer Starter: God, I want to find my rest in You. Instead of constantly going and snapping under stress, show me how to follow Your pace for my life.
