Joyce Meyer Daily Devotional 28th December 2017
TOPIC: Making Tough Decisions
KEY VERSE: For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome. (Jeremiah 29:11)
MESSAGE: It’s important to make the right choices, especially in the middle of hurt, discouragement, frustration and confusion—when the right choice is the tough choice to make. When things are stressful, we naturally like to take the path of least resistance. But those are the very moments when making the right choice can make the greatest difference. Because to reap right results in life, you have to do right when you don’t feel like it.
Joyce Meyer Daily Devotional: Don’t Give In to Self Pity
What’s amazing to me is that Jesus knows what we feel like. When He became a human being, He struggled with all of the frustrations we struggle with. He felt like giving up and taking the easy way, but He overcame and made the tough choices.
When we grow weary and falter in our determination, we can know with confidence that we serve a God who knows what we’re going through. He wants to help us and give us His grace so we don’t have to make tough decisions on our own.
Joyce Meyer Daily Devotional: Are You Hopeful?
When you find yourself stressed-out or on the verge of giving up, remember that God is with you and He understands. Find the strength to make the tough choices in Him.
PRAYER: God, I’m so glad and so thankful You understand everything I go through and struggle with. When I am tempted to take the path of least resistance, I will find my strength in You to make the tough choices.
