JOYCE MEYER DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR FEBRUARY 13, 2023 (THE TRUTH OF GOD’S WORD)
TOPIC: THE TRUTH OF GOD’S WORD
I have discovered that being confident in who God created us to be is a key to living the joy-filled, overcoming life Jesus died to give us.
The devil is constantly trying to introduce thoughts into our heads to make us lose our confidence. The mind is the battlefield, and the devil lies to us through wrong thinking. He tries to tell us we aren’t good enough; we’ve made too many mistakes; God is angry with us—any thought that would make us doubt the love God has for us. If we meditate on those wrong thoughts, our confidence begins to fade.
The key to winning the battle of the mind is to fight against the lies of the enemy with the truth of God’s Word. You don’t have to dwell on wrong thoughts; instead, you can believe the promises of God and boldly declare those promises over your life.
I encourage you to confidently declare what the Word of God says about you, such as: “I am more than a conqueror through Jesus (see Romans 8:37). I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me (see Philippians 4:13). I am triumphant in every situation because God always causes me to triumph (see 2 Corinthians 2:14).”
Prayer of the Day: Father, thank You for Your Word. Thank You that I can boldly declare in Faith who I am in Christ, that I have authority over the enemy and can recognize his lies. I know Your Truth always triumphs, amen.
