Topic: You Have a Relationship with Yourself [Joyce Meyer’s Daily Monday, March 19th, 2018]

In this you rejoice greatly, even though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been distressed by various trials, so that the genuineness of your faith, which is much more precious than gold which is perishable, even though tested and purified by fire, may be found to result in [your] praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. — 1 Peter 1:6-7

Did it ever occur to you that you have a relationship with yourself? You may have never given it much thought, but you spend more time with yourself than anyone else, and it’s vital that you get along well with you because you are the one person you never get away from.

We should love ourselves—not in a selfish, self-centered way that produces a lifestyle of self-indulgence, but in a balanced, godly way that affirms God’s creation as essentially good and right. No one is perfect, and we may be flawed by unfortunate experiences we’ve gone through, but that doesn’t mean we’re worthless and good-for-nothing.

Joyce Meyer’s Daily 19 March 2018 Devotional

We must have the kind of love for ourselves that says, “I know God loves me, so I can love what God chooses to love. I don’t love everything I do, but I accept myself because God accepts me.” We must develop the kind of mature love that says, “I believe God is changing me daily, but during this process, I will not reject what God accepts. I’ll accept myself as I am right now, knowing I will not always remain this way.”

Prayer Starter

God, like Isaiah 43:25 says, You blot my sins and accept me, which means I don’t have to reject myself. I am free to love myself in a healthy way because You love me!

Joyce Meyer’s Daily 18 March 2018 Devotional: A Need for Brokenness

Joyce Meyer’s Daily 18 March 2018 Devotional : A Need for Brokenness

Topic: A Need for Brokenness [Joyce Meyer’s Daily Sunday March 18th, 2018]

In this you rejoice greatly, even though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been distressed by various trials, so that the genuineness of your faith, which is much more precious than gold which is perishable, even though tested and purified by fire, may be found to result in [your] praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. — 1 Peter 1:6-7

The word brokenness may strike fear in some people, but it’s really not a bad word. God doesn’t desire to break our spirits, but He wants to break that outer shell, the flesh that prevents Him from being all He wants to be in and through us. He wants to break off things like pride, rebellion, selfishness and independence. God wants us to be totally dependent on Him, and suffering seems to bring us to that point.

Sometimes people seem surprised that they must go through a time of trial or suffering. Even when we’re faithful to learn and obey the Word, the trials still come. And sometimes trials come simply to test and purify our faith.

When these trials come your way, embrace them, because they lead to genuine brokenness. God wants us to live by the Spirit, not the flesh, and this is so much easier when we allow Him to break any sinful or selfish habits or traits off our lives that are keeping us from Him.

Do you want to be close to God today? Then embrace brokenness, knowing it will lead to greater things in your future.

Prayer Starter: Holy Spirit, I realize sometimes I need brokenness. It may not be comfortable, but I invite You to break off and get rid of anything that’s keeping me from You.

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 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 13 March 2018 Devotional: A Great Trade

Joyce Meyer’s Daily 13 March 2018 Devotional : A Great Trade

Topic: A Great Trade [Joyce Meyer’s Daily Tuesday March 13th, 2018]

For I consider [from the standpoint of faith] that the sufferings of the present life are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is about to be revealed to us and in us! — Romans 8:18

Did you know that God wants to make a trade with you? He wants you to give Him all your cares, problems and failures. In return, He’ll give you His peace and joy.

Joyce Meyer’s Daily 13 March 2018 Devotional

God really does want to take care of us, but in order to let Him, we’ve got to stop trying to take care of ourselves and worrying about every little thing we can’t control. Many people would like for God to take care of them, but they insist on worrying or trying to figure out an answer on their own, instead of waiting for God’s direction.

God will give us peace, but we must first give Him our worries. What a great trade! We give God our worry, and He gives us His peace. We give Him all our cares and concerns, and He gives us His protection, stability and joy. That’s the amazing blessing and privilege of being cared for by Him.

Prayer Starter: Lord, You have offered me an amazing trade. You are so much more capable than I am, so I give You all of my cares and receive all of the peace and joy You offer me!
