Joyce Meyer 1 November 2018 Daily Devotional
Topic: Exceedingly, Abundantly, Above & Beyond
Scripture: Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. — Romans 12:11
Message: When I pray about or simply meditate on all the people who are hurting, I have a strong desire to help them all. I sometimes feel that my desire is bigger than my ability, and it is—but it is not bigger than God’s ability!
When the thing we are facing in our lives or ministries looms so big in our eyes that our mind goes “tilt,” we need to think in the spirit. In the natural, many things are impossible. But in the supernatural, spiritual realm, with God nothing is impossible.
God wants us to believe for great things, make big plans, and expect Him to do things so great it leaves us with our mouths hanging open in awe. James 4:2 tells us we have not because we ask not! We can be bold in our asking.
Joyce Meyer 1 November 2018 Daily Devotional – Exceedingly, Abundantly, Above & Beyond
Sometimes in my meetings people will approach the altar for prayer and sheepishly ask if they can request two things. I tell them they can ask God for all they want to, as long as they trust Him to do it His way, in His timing. It is untold what people can do—people who don’t appear to be able to do anything.
God does not usually call people who are capable. If He did, He would not get the glory. He frequently chooses those who, in the natural, feel as if they are in completely over their heads but who are ready to stand up on the inside and take bold steps of faith as they get direction from God.
We usually want to wait until we “feel ready” before we step out, but if we feel ready then we tend to lean on ourselves instead of on God. Joyce Meyer 1 November 2018 Daily Devotional
Know your weaknesses and know God—know His strength and faithfulness. Above all else, don’t be a quitter.
Prayer Starter: Oh, Lord, help me to make you bigger in my eyes and believe You can do the impossible in my life. Help me to live with “God confidence,” and trust You to do things that are above and beyond what I even think I deserve. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
