Joyce Meyer (September-22-2022) Daily Devotional: Be “God Loves Me” Minded.
I remember when I began my ministry. When I was preparing for my first meeting, I asked the Lord what He wanted me to teach, and what came to my heart was, “Tell My people I love them.”
"They know that" I said. "I want to teach them something really powerful, not a Sunday school lesson out of John 3:16."
The Lord reminded me that if people really knew how much He loved them, they would act differently than they do.
As I began to study the subject of receiving God's love, I realized I was in desperate need of that message myself. I had a subconscious, vague sort of understanding that God loved me, but I needed deeper revelation. The love of God is meant to be a powerful force in our lives, one that will take us through even the most difficult trials without us ever doubting God's love.
Prayer of the Day: Thank You, Father, for Your never-ending love for me, and I receive that love right now, in Jesus’ name, amen.
Joyce Meyer (May-10-2023) Daily Devotional: A Big, Rewarding Life
People with low confidence are double-minded, indecisive people who constantly get frustrated with life. If they do make a decision, they are tormented by self-doubt. They second-guess themselves. As a result, they don't live boldly. They live little, narrow lives, and they miss out on the big, rewarding lives God wants them to enjoy.
You may be aware of some of God's promises for His people—promises for peace, happiness, blessings, and so on. But did you know that all of God's promises are for every person?
That's right—when it comes to fulfilling promises, God does not discriminate. However, God requires us to approach Him in faith—the deeply held confidence that God is trustworthy and will always make good on His promises. God loves you; He wants you to relax in the knowledge of that love. God wants you to experience the peace of mind that comes from resting in His love and living without the torment of fear and doubt.
Prayer Starter: Lord, I hate all the second-guessing and the wavering that come with a lack of confidence in You. I know that You want me to enjoy a big, rewarding life, and I know that Your promises of blessings and joy and peace are for me. By faith I receive all that You have for me now. Amen.
Joyce Meyer (February-14-2022) Daily Devotional: A Blameless Heart
God does not say He is looking for someone with a perfect performance, but rather someone with a perfect heart—a heart that desires to please Him, a heart that is grieved over sin and evil, a heart that believes in Him and His willingness and ability to forgive and restore. God knows we cannot manifest perfection. It is acceptable to be needy!
God is a God of hearts. He sees and cares about our attitude of heart even more than our performance. I have said many times that I believe God would rather have a believer who has a good heart and a less than perfect performance than one who has a perfect performance but an impure heart. It is possible to be very religious and to keep all the rules but to have a heart that is far from God.
For example, Jesus had much to say to the Pharisees of His day. They had a polished performance, kept the laws, followed all the rules and regulations, and were proud of it. They also had a judgmental attitude toward others, did not walk in love, and showed no mercy. Jesus called them whitewashed tombs full of dead men's bones (see Matthew 23:27).
Prayer Starter: Lord, my performance is far from perfect, but in my heart, I desire to please You in everything. Draw me close to Your heart today that I may be like You, amen.
Joyce Meyer (December-23-2022) Daily Devotional: Seek God All the Time
When King Jehoshaphat needed to hear from God, he proclaimed a fast throughout his entire kingdom of Judah. All the people gathered to seek the Lord for help, longing for Him with all their hearts. Jehoshaphat proclaimed a fast to demonstrate his sincerity to God and his need for God. If you need to hear from God, consider missing a few meals and taking that time to seek God. Turning the television off and spending time with God instead of watching it is not a bad idea either, nor is spending a few evenings at home seeking God instead of going out with friends asking for their advice and opinions. These disciplines and others prove that you understand the importance of hearing from God.
Some people seek God earnestly only when they are in trouble, but we need to seek Him intensely all the time. God once impressed upon me that the reason so many people have so many problems is that the only time, they seek Him is when they are in trouble. He showed me that if He removed some people's problems, they would not seek Him at all. He said, "Seek Me as if you were desperate all the time and then you won't find yourself desperate so often in reality." I think this is good advice and I encourage you to follow it every day.
Prayer Starter: Lord, help me to seek You at all times, as though I were always desperate. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Joyce Meyer (September-10-2022) Daily Devotional: Enjoy Your Everyday Life
I want you to notice the words allotted part and appointed lot in the above passage. What King Solomon is basically communicating here is this message: enjoy your life. Take your appointed lot in life and enjoy it. In other words, embrace the life—the personality, the strengths and weaknesses, the family, the resources, the opportunities, the physical qualities, the abilities, the gifts, and the uniqueness— God has given you.
The only life you can enjoy is your own. That statement may seem so obvious that it's unnecessary but think about it. One of the primary reasons many people do not enjoy their lives is because they are not happy with the lives they have. When I speak to them about enjoying their lives, the first thought they often have is, I would enjoy my life if I had your life, Joyce! Instead of embracing the realities of their lives, these people spend their time thinking, I wish I looked like So-and-So. I wish I had So-and-So's job. I wish I were married. I wish my marriage weren't so difficult. I wish I had children. I wish my children would grow up. I wish I had a new house. I wish I didn't have such a big house to clean. I wish I had a big ministry…
The truth of the matter is the first step to enjoying our everyday lives is to be grateful for the lives we've been given. We must not allow jealousy to cause us to be absent from our own lives because we want what someone else has. You have to take what you have and decide you are going to do the best you can with it. What are you doing with what you have been given?
Prayer Starter: Father, help me to trust You and be faithful with the life You have given me and not to compare my life with the lives of others. In Jesus’ name, amen.
