Welcome to enjoying everyday life with New York Times best selling author Joyce Meyer.
On today’s program, Joyce will be teaching from her series, living purpose or a purpose.
Each day, god gives us is precious. And once it’s gone, we can never get it back.
We can all make a decision to use our time wise so we can accomplish all that god wants us to.
Now here’s Joyce with today’s teaching.
Do you have a plan? Are you able to follow through with your plans?
How many days do you have in which you don’t accomplish what you set out to do?
How easy do you lose your focus? Are you leaving a legacy?
Here’s a good one. Will the world miss you when you’re gone?
What have you done with your life so far?
You know, these are sobering questions, but we need to be sober sometimes.
First Peter Five Eights says, be well balanced, sober of mind.
Be vigilant and cautious at all times, but enemy of yours, the devil roams around like a lion roaring and fierce hunger seeking someone to seize the book is called seize the day.
Seeking someone to seize upon and devour. And you know what?
If we don’t wake up sleepy Christians, Walk carefully, which means the Greek word is circumspectly, and that word means to walk looking all around you being careful.
It actually has a a word picture connected to it of walking barefoot in a field of thorns.
So how many of you would take your shoes off?
Go out into a field of thorns and just We wouldn’t do that, but sometimes that’s the way we live life.
Amen? No. I mean, you’d be like, is this the right thing? Is this the right thing?
Is this the right thing? I’m just asking today if we could start living a little more carefully.
How many warnings do you ignore? You say warnings. What do you mean?
Well, let’s just say that your back has hurt for 5 years.
And you’ve never bothered to go see why. Well, no.
When your body hurts somewhere consistently, it’s warning you that something’s wrong.
And if you take care of little problems, they won’t become big problems.
Thank you for your excitement. Alright.
I’ll just move on to something else.
We had better seized the day before the devil seizes our day.
1st Corinthians 310 says according to the grace, of god bestowed on me, like a skillful architect and a master builder, I laid the foundation And now another man is building upon it, but let each man be careful how he builds.
There’s the word again. Careful are circumspectly Paul is saying, I taught you about Christ.
I’ve laid a foundation in your life. Now you’re gonna be building a life.
Be careful how you build.
And if you go actually study those scriptures out, it says that we can build with wood, hay, straw, stubble, gold, are silver.
How are we building our life?
I spent so many years going to bed at night regretting what I spent my day doing.
And I don’t wanna do that anymore, and I don’t want you to do it.
I wanna go to bed at night and be proud of what I got done that day. Amen?
What are you doing with what god has given you?
AW Tozier said this, and I think this is awesome.
A man by his sin may waste himself, which is to waste that which on earth is most like god.
You here on Earth are more like god than anything else here.
And he’s saying, if you waste yourself, then you’re wasting the thing that is the most like god.
This is man’s greatest tragedy and god’s greatest grief.
You know, waste of any kind is sad, and certainly the waste of an entire life is the saddest of all.
And, um, how many of you know somebody that has just wasted their whole life. K.
Well, I think we all do.
My dad did that, and, It’s so sad to see somebody in their eighties on a walker, gray hair, all wrinkled up.
Who’s pretty much alone and has nothing left, but regrets. I will not live like that.
I am not gonna get to the end of my life and have nothing left, but regrets.
And the only way that you can not have regret tomorrow is to do what’s right today.
Today, we need to start making right choices.
If god is dealing with you about anything in your life and you know that you need to be obedient to him and you’re putting it off for another day.
I think tomorrow is maybe the most dangerous word that we have in our English language.
I’ll do that tomorrow. I’ll do that tomorrow. Well, what if Jesus comes today?
It wasn’t a loud clap, but nonetheless, it was a clap.
How many of you understand what I’m trying to do here today?
I’m trying to move somebody to make some decisions.
I’m trying to move somebody to stop just waiting for somebody to come and wave their hand over you and make it alright.
I’m yelling to somebody. Get up.
It’s time to get up and start doing something with what god has given you.
Well, I just don’t know what God wants me to do. You know what?
Half the time when I come up here, I don’t have a clue what God wants me to do and I’ve got a message, but I’ll tell you one thing.
I’ve never come up here and not have god work through me.
And if you will take a step, god will work through you. Hey, man?
I believe that god hates waste.
This morning, I had somebody get me a cup of coffee and it was way too strong.
And I had to pour it out.
I wasted $3 on a cup of coffee that I couldn’t drink.
I don’t like it when I do that. I don’t like to waste god’s money.
I don’t like to waste my time. I don’t I don’t wanna waste my energy.
Do you know that every day that you spend angry is a day that you have totally wasted?
Totally wasted. Every day that you spend feeling sorry for yourself.
It’s a totally wasted day. It’s completely unproductive. It does not help your future in any way, shape, or form.
It just keeps you stuck in the same spot. Come on.
We’re talking about making some decisions today.
You know, we’re always spending something.
You’re spending your time. You’re spending your energy. You’re spending your money.
Now, like today, you have spent, by the time you leave, you will have spent, well, 2 hours 15 minutes from the time the service started, and some of you probably got here early.
And so let’s just say let’s just say even if you spent 3 hours here today. Okay.
Well, that’s time well spent because you know why?
This is gonna help you tomorrow and the next day and the next day and the next day.
But you could have went out for coffee with 2 friends and sat and goss up for 3 hours about everybody else you know.
And that’s not gonna make you feel good.
You’ll be unhappy later today and won’t even know why.
But now, today, you’re gonna have a much better day because you’re sitting there having life ministered to you.
What does the Bible say?
If you sow to the spirit, you will reap from the spirit life and life eternal.
And if you sow to the flesh, you will reap death, ruin, decay, and destruction. Amen.
Make good choices. Feel good about the choices that you’re making. Amen? Amen.
I figured out yesterday. And I’m down the road away with this, so don’t I’m not asking anybody to do what I’m doing, but I started working out with weights 11 years ago, and, And I did that 3 hours a week.
It would take me an hour, 3 times a week, and I had a trainer.
Well, about a year and a half ago, I started adding walking, and I got up to 5 miles every day.
And so I spend about 17 hours a week exercising. Okay.
Now I and I’m not trying to impress you. I’m trying to make a point. Okay.
Cause I before I got up here to teach this, I took an inventory of my time.
How much time do I spend watching TV? How much time do I spend sleeping?
How much time do I spend doing this? How much time do I spend doing that?
How much time do I spend with God? And I looked at it, and I thought, okay.
I’m spending 17 hours a week working out. But what am I doing with that? I’m buying years.
Say? I’m buying energy. I’m buying vibrancy.
I’m buying the opportunity to be here a lot longer than I would be if I didn’t do anything so I can help more people sumize the gift that god has given me.
And that’s really the reason why I started doing it.
I looked at myself one day, and I mean, god spoke to my heart.
And he said, if you don’t start, getting exercise, you are not gonna be strong for the last third of your journey.
Amen? And, you know, I mean, it is amazing.
The energy Dave and I have for our age.
And Dave doesn’t like to talk about old, but nonetheless, we got a few years on us Hey, man?
See, here’s the thing to realize. You can add years to your life and not get old.
I sure don’t feel like I’m gonna be 73 in 30 days.
I don’t feel like that.
And when I’m out there walking and sweating and climbing those hills, I know I’m buying years.
I’m buying energy. I need to be creative.
I mean, I teach a lot of different things, a lot of different places, and write all these books I’ve gotta be fresh and I’ve gotta be creative.
I don’t have 5 messages that I can go over the world and preach.
Every time I get on that television, you wanna hear something different.
And my brain was kinda starting to not wanna think anymore.
Well, one of the reasons was because I wasn’t getting any blood to it ever.
Oh, you know what I’m saying.
When you spend when you spend your time, you’re buying something with it.
So do you want to invest your time or waste your time?
And see, I don’t think it’s wrong to watch a movie on TV.
I don’t think it’s wrong to rest. I don’t think it’s wrong to wrong to go.
I’m not saying that you gotta just work work work work work work all the time.
You need a balanced life. But we all know that we can sit and watch stuff on TV that is just flat out stupid.
And just go, I mean, I’ve done that 3 hours.
Am I anybody else out there?
And then tomorrow, we want god to wave his hand over us.
Oh, we’re having too much fun for a Friday morning.
I’m sorry for all the people that missed it.
You know what? I’ve been doing it.
It’s been an interesting project. Several times a day now, I’m stopping and kinda going over what I’ve done with my time so far that day, and I’m finding it to be interesting because we often say life just goes by in a bar.
Well, sometimes we need to take the time to think about what we’re doing with the time that we have.
Take the time to think about what you’re doing with the time that you have.
The only way that we can ever make any changes in our life Is it taking an honest look at it and say, what am I investing?
What am I wasting? What would god have me change?
You know, we’re always adjusting and making changes in our lives.
