Joyce Meyer (March-07-2021) Watch Sermon: Touchy, Touchy, Touchy. People are so touchy today. Where's the mercy? We can't be like everybody else. We're in the world but we're not of the world. We as Christians need to be the example. Joyce gives you the "how to" so you can forgive.
Joyce Meyer (March-07-2021) Daily Devotional: Excuses, Excuses
Moses made excuses when God called him to service. He said he wasn’t eloquent enough and could not speak (see Exodus 4:10). Felix made excuses when Paul was speaking to him about righteousness and self-control, basically telling Paul, “Right now is an inconvenient time. Can you come back later?” (see Acts 24:25).
When God invites people into a relationship with Him, many people come up with excuses because they simply don’t want to make the sacrifices required to follow Him. Even among those of us who are believers in Jesus, we still hear ample excuses for not serving Him fully. It’s time for us to deal with any excuses may have been making and start speaking truth, because the day will come when all of us will stand before God and give an account of our lives (see Romans 14:12). No excuses will work on that day, so let’s be vigilant to follow God’s instructions. You won’t regret it (see James 1:25)!
Prayer Starter: Father, please show me any excuses I’m holding onto that are keeping me from following You fully. Thank You for giving me the grace to follow Your instructions and stay in Your will for my life. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Joyce Meyer (March-06-2021) Daily Devotional: Triumph
Triumph = To obtain victory
We’re all fighting a battle for our thoughts on the battlefield of our minds, and it’s easy to get discouraged when we don’t reach victory all at once. But it’s important to understand that we can’t triumph over and destroy spiritual enemies like anger, selfishness, bitterness, jealousy (or whatever we might be dealing with) all at one time, or instantly.
God deals with things in our lives one at a time, and the changes we need require patience. If you push to get ahead of God, you won’t make the progress you want, but you will get very frustrated and confused. Without God’s grace, it’s impossible to triumph, even if we have the best of intentions.
Whatever spiritual enemies you’re facing today, ask God to for the grace and wisdom to do your part, and trust Him to do His part. Instead of trying to do it in your own strength or getting discouraged because you aren’t there yet, ask Him to go before you and give you the victory. As you pray, listen, and wait on Him, He’ll help you grow in freedom from any sin, bad habit, or addiction in your life.
Prayer Starter: Father, please help me trust You to strengthen me to fight the battles I’m facing. Thank You for going before me to do what I can’t do, for always being there to help, and for giving me the victory I need at the right time. In Jesus’ name, amen.
Joyce Meyer (March-05-2021) Daily Devotional: You Can Do All Things Through Christ
One thought that has the power to transform your life is simple: Through Christ, I can handle whatever life hands me. I wonder—do you believe you can do whatever you need to do? Or are there certain things that trigger dread, fear, or cause you to say, “I could never do that!” when you think about them?
Whether it’s suddenly losing a loved one, facing a serious unexpected illness, having your adult child with two toddlers move into your clean and quiet house after you’ve had an “empty nest” for years, going on a strict diet because your life depends on it, putting yourself on a budget to avoid foreclosure on your home, or suddenly having to care for a disabled elderly parent—most people have some kind of situation that truly seems impossible to them, something they aren’t sure they can handle.
No matter what that circumstance is for you, God’s Word has good news: even in the most unpleasant and difficult situations, God has provided the strength you need to do whatever you need to do in life. He doesn’t say everything will be easy for us, but He’s promised to stick with us through every moment, so we can enjoy life in the midst of doing hard things (see Deuteronomy 31:6; Joshua 1:9).
We need to understand that Philippians 4:13 does not say we can do anything we want to do because we are strong enough, smart enough, or hardworking enough. God’s grace actually has nothing to do with our effort or striving at all—it’s through His strength alone that we can accomplish anything.
[Not in your own strength] for it is God Who is all the while effectually at work in you [energizing and creating in you the power and desire], both to will and to work for His good pleasure and satisfaction and delight. — Philippians 2:13 (AMPC)
What in your life do you need to begin to believe you can do? Know that whatever it is, God is willing and able to work in and through you to accomplish it.
Prayer Starter: Jesus, thank You for making a way for me to accomplish everything that You’ve called me to do. Please help me always remember to lean on Your strength, not mine, because You’re the only One with the power to bring me through this. In Your name, amen.
Joyce Meyer (March-04-2021) Daily Devotional: Rejoice and Be Glad
Countless serious things are going on in this world, and we do need to be aware and prepared for them. But at the same time, because of the Holy Spirit in our lives, we can learn to relax and take things as they come without getting nervous and upset about them.
Thankfully, with God’s help, we can learn how to enjoy the abundant life He’s provided for us through the death and resurrection of His Son, Jesus. Twice in Philippians 4: 4–7, the apostle Paul tells us to rejoice, and he urges us not to worry or have any anxiety about anything, but to pray and give thanks to God in everything—not only after every difficulty is over. In spite of all the troubling things going on around us, our attitude can be, “This is the day the Lord has made, so I will rejoice and be glad in it.”
I want to encourage you to take some time today to thank God and give Him the things you’re worried about. As you do, it’ll become easier and easier to breathe, rest and enjoy life.
Prayer Starter: Father, no matter what goes on around me today, thank You that I can still rest, knowing You’re taking care of me. Please help me remember to rejoice, even in harder situations. Thank You for giving me joy that’s not found in my circumstances, so no one can take it away. In Jesus’ name, amen.
Bad-Stinky-Foul Mood Fixer - Joyce Meyer (March-03-2021). Most of the time, when you don't know what happened to your joy, or why you're in a stinky mood, something is wrong with your believing. Find out what you can do about it.
Joyce Meyer (March-03-2021) Daily Devotional: Know God Intimately
In Philippians 3:10 the apostle Paul wrote, [For my determined purpose is] that I may know Him [that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him, perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of His Person more strongly and more clearly], and that I may in that same way come to know the power outflowing from His resurrection [which it exerts over believers].
I want to encourage you today to focus on knowing Jesus a little better than you did yesterday. Study His Words. Begin to watch for the ways He’s working in your life. Decide to keep your mind on whatever is right, true, lovely, pure, and of good report (see Philippians 4:8). The more you grow in your knowledge of Him, the more you’ll start to see His power working on your behalf, and the more your life will be full of His freedom and joy.
Prayer Starter: Jesus, I want to know You better than I ever have before. Please help me learn to recognize and celebrate all the ways You’re working in my life. Thank You for Your grace and power to grow more like You. In Your name, amen.
