Joyce Meyer (August-03-2020) Motivation: How to Know the Will of God. Are you struggling with knowing what God's will is for your life? Watch this from Joyce to get pointed in the right direction.

Joyce Meyer (August-03-2020) Daily Devotion: Balance in All Things.

It takes discipline to balance our lives. We need to be disciplined to pray, read and study the Word, and spend quality time with the Lord, but we also need to be disciplined to spend quality time with our family and to take care of our health. Jesus came so that we could have and enjoy our lives, so we should even discipline ourselves to rest and have fun (see John 10:10).

Take a look at your life today, and ask God for wisdom to do what’s needed to bring balance to the way you use your time. He wants your life to be full of joy. Psalm 23:2-3 teaches that He’ll lead you beside still and restful waters. He’s ready and waiting to refresh and restore your life, and to lead you in paths of righteousness for His name's sake.

Prayer Starter: Father, show me today how I can bless the people You’ve put in my path. Thank You for leading me and giving me the ability to serve and encourage others in the way they need it. In Jesus’ Name, amen.

Joyce Meyer (August-02-2020) Watch Sermon: Four Purposes for Trials. Understanding why difficulties are happening from a spiritual aspect can help us know that God is there with us and He's doing something with that difficulty. Joyce has identified four purposes for those trials and why we may be facing in life. Watch and be encouraged by this.

Joyce Meyer (August-02-2020) Daily Devotion: Real Relationships Are Worth It.

Jesus did not waste His time, so we can reasonably assume that everything He did was purposeful, meaningful, and contains something we need to learn. Let’s think about the time He decided to wash His disciples’ feet (see John 13:1–17). What do you think that was all about?

Jesus was and is the Son of God, or God expressed in the second person of the Trinity. So in a nutshell, He’s really important and certainly wouldn’t have to wash anyone’s feet, much less the guys who were basically His students. He didn’t do it because He had to; He did it because He wanted to teach them that they could be in authority and still be servants at the same time. Peter, the most outspoken disciple, outright refused to let Jesus wash his feet at first, but Jesus said if He didn’t wash Peter’s feet, the two of them couldn’t be real friends. In other words, they both had to be willing to serve one another for their relationship to be healthy and authentic.

I decided a few years ago that I wasn’t willing to have any more one-sided relationships where I do all the giving and the other person does all the taking. That kind of interaction is not real friendship, and it always eventually causes resentment and bitterness.

Not only should we do things for each other, we actually need to do things for one another; it’s just part of maintaining good relationships. Giving doesn’t always have to be a response to a desperate need; sometimes we’ll be led to do something for a person who doesn’t seem to need it at all. You might be thinking, If there’s no need, then why do it? Simply because giving of any kind helps keep us from becoming greedy, and it encourages people and makes them feel loved—and we all need to feel loved, no matter how much we have.

When you trust God enough to be willing to serve and bless others, He will always take care of you (see Proverbs 11:25)!

Prayer Starter: Father, show me today how I can bless the people You’ve put in my path. Thank You for leading me and giving me the ability to serve and encourage others in the way they need it. In Jesus’ Name, amen.

Joyce Meyer (August-01-2020) Motivation: God Is Not Mad At You. If you think that God is still mad at you for something...listen to this story. The key to living a happy, healthy life is understanding how God sees us.

Joyce Meyer (August-01-2020) Daily Devotion: Be Diligent. 

Proverbs 22:29 (AMPC) says, Do you see a man diligent and skillful in his business? He will stand before kings; he will not stand before obscure men. A diligent person lives by the principle of "just do it!" They’re the one who does it, does it, does it, and then does it some more, until whatever they’ve set out to do is finished, and done well.

Never give up on anything God has told you to believe for; don’t quit doing anything He’s clearly shown you to do. Your diligence will pay off with a blessing!

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. - Galatians 6:9 (NIV)

Prayer Starter: Father, help me today to stay diligent about doing what You’ve called me to do, and not to give up. Thank You for giving me the grace I need to keep going! In Jesus’ Name, amen.

Keep It or Throw It Away? - Joyce Meyer, Dave Meyer (July-31-2020). There are seasons in life where God leads us to keep or throw away. Joyce explains how both are very important on our journey with God. Dave Meyer joins to tell a funny story about their marriage.

Joyce Meyer  (July-31-2020) Daily Devotion: You Can Overcome. 

When God begins to deal with us about wrong behavior, it’s easy to say, “I can’t help it,” but it takes real courage and faith to say, “I’m ready to take responsibility for my actions. Please help me as I get my life straightened out.”

Avoidance, or not facing issues, is a major problem. Wrong things don’t go away just because we refuse to acknowledge them. We often stuff things. We hide from them, and as long as we do, they have power over us. Issues buried alive never die.

For many years, I refused to deal with the sexual abuse in my childhood. My father had abused me, so I left home the week I turned 18 years old. I thought I was getting away from the problem by leaving, but I didn’t realize I had the problem in my soul. It was in my thoughts, attitudes, and words. It affected my actions and all of my relationships. I had buried my past and stuffed my stuff. We don’t have to live in the past—in fact, we are encouraged by God’s Word to forget it and let it go. However, that doesn’t mean that we’re free to ignore the results of it and pretend that we’re not hurting when we are.

I had a lot of bad behavior and negative attitudes. I also had lots of excuses. I wasn’t dealing with anything from the past; I was just feeling sorry for myself and saying, “I can’t help it. It’s not my fault I was abused.” And it wasn’t my fault. But it was my responsibility to let God help me overcome all the problems I was experiencing as a result of that abuse.

God began setting me free by dealing with me about all the wrong thoughts I had accepted and allowed. My mind had to change before my life could change. At first, I didn’t even want to take responsibility for my thoughts. I thought, I can’t help what I think—things just come into my head! I eventually learned that I could choose my own thoughts, and I could think things on purpose. I learned that we don’t have to accept every thought that falls into our minds. We can throw out wrong ones and replace them with right ones.

I learned that instead of feeling helpless over the thoughts that fill my mind, I can—I must—do something positive.

Much of our thinking is habitual. If we regularly think about God and good things, godly thoughts become natural. Thousands of thoughts flow through our minds every day. We may feel that we have no control over them, but we do. Although we don’t have to use any effort to think destructive thoughts, we do have to put out effort to think good thoughts. As we begin to make changes, we will have to fight a battle.

Our mind is the battlefield, and Satan’s primary way of fighting us is through our thoughts. If we feel we have no power over our thoughts, Satan will trap and defeat us. Instead, we can determine to think in godly ways. We constantly make choices. Where do those choices come from? They start in our thought life. Our thoughts become our words and our actions.

God has given us the power to decide—to choose right thinking over wrong. But once we make that choice, we have to continue to choose right thoughts. It’s not a once-and-for-all decision, but it does get easier. The more we fill our lives with God’s Word, prayer, worship, and fellowship with other believers, the easier it is for us to continue choosing right thoughts.

It may sound as if I’m saying that trying to live the Christian life is nothing but one continuous struggle. That’s partly true, but that’s only a piece of the story. Too many people want to live victorious Christian lives, but they don’t want to fight the battles. Victory, however, means fighting and overcoming obstacles.

To think in the right way takes practice, and it’s not always easy, nor does it feel natural until we’ve done it for a long time. But if we know this is the pathway to life—both now and in eternity—it’s worth the effort and the struggle to think positive thoughts.

When we’re bombarded with doubts and fears, that’s when we need to take our stand. We don’t ever want to say again, “I can’t help it.” We want to believe and say, “God is with me, and He strengthens me. God enables me to win.” (See Philippians 2:13; 4:13.) The apostle Paul said it this way, But thanks be to God, Who gives us the victory [making us conquerors] through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be firm (steadfast), immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord [always being superior, excelling, doing more than enough in the service of the Lord], knowing and being continually aware that your labor in the Lord is not futile [it is never wasted or to no purpose] (1 Corinthians 15:57–58 AMPC).

We can choose. Not only can we choose, but we do choose. By not pushing the bad thoughts from our minds, we’re allowing them to invade us and take us captive.

It takes time to learn to choose good and push away evil. It won’t be easy, but we’re moving in the right direction every time we take responsibility and make a right choice.

Prayer Starter: Father, please teach me and help me be intentional with my thoughts, choosing only those that are healthy, true, and right. Thank You for being with me every step of the way and giving me the strength I need to overcome the enemy’s strongholds in my life. In Jesus’ Name, amen.

Joyce Meyer (July-30-2020) Motivation: Get the Word Hate Out of Our Language. How can we expect to live a life we love if we hate everything? Watch as Joyce shows a simple thing we can do to get the word hate out of our lives.

Joyce Meyer (July-30-2020) Daily Devotion: The Power of Surrender.

We read in the book of Jonah how God told Jonah to go to Nineveh and preach repentance to the people there, but because Jonah didn’t want to, he went to Tarshish, which is in the absolute opposite direction.

What happens when we go in the opposite direction from where God has directed us? What happened to Jonah? When he boarded a ship and headed in his own direction, a huge storm arose. Like Jonah, many of the storms we face in life are the result of our own stubbornness or disobedience to the voice and leadership of God.

The violent storm that came upon Jonah frightened the rest of the men on the ship. They cast lots to see who was causing the trouble, and the lot fell on Jonah. He knew he had disobeyed God, so he told the men to throw him overboard so that they’d be safe. When they did, the storm stopped, and a huge fish swallowed Jonah.

From the fish's belly (not a pleasant place!), he cried out to God for mercy and repented of his stubborn ways, and God heard him. The fish spit Jonah out on dry land, and in Jonah 3:1, we see that God spoke to Jonah a second time, giving him a second chance to go to Nineveh and preach to the people there. No matter how long we avoid God's instruction, it’s still there for us to follow when we stop running.

If we’re not pursuing God's will, we get uncomfortable; we just know something isn’t right in our lives. Eventually we see that being in His will, not trying to make our own will happen, is what brings peace and joy.

I encourage you to take a moment to ask yourself, Where am I headed? Think about the answer. If you’re moving in any direction other than God’s will, now is the perfect time to make a change!

Prayer Starter: Father, help me follow Your direction the first time You give it, and please forgive me for the times I haven’t. Thank You for forgiving me, and for providing the grace I need to do what You’ve asked me to do. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
