Welcome to enjoying everyday life with New York Times bestselling author Joyce Meyer.
On today’s program, Joyce will be teaching from her series filled with hope.
Hope is the confident expectation that something good is going to happen to us and through us, but it’s very important we have our hopes set in the right place.
We can place hope in many things, but only hope in our faithful Heavenly Father and His promises to us in His word will bring about the blessings He has for us.
Now, here’s Joyce with today’s teaching.
Oh, one of my most yummy scriptures is Zechariah 912.
Let’s put it up.
Return to the stronghold of security and prosperity you prisoners of hope. Uh-oh.
Even today do I declare that I will restore double double your former prosperity to you.
Now we’re going over the edge. Okay.
Now look, God promises us that if we will become prisoners of hope, You know what that means?
I’m locked up in hope. I can’t get away from it. I can’t get out of it.
Hope. Hope. Hope. Hope. Hope.
Everywhere I look, hope hope hope.
When you do that, the devil does not know what to do to you.
Now listen, the devil will attack us.
He’ll come against us, he’ll come with negative thoughts and trying to tell us that But but but but He can’t get to us as long as we remain prisoners of hope.
Amen? You get up in the morning the devil says nothing good is gonna happen to you today.
You’ve already been waiting 25 years that ain’t gonna change.
Listen, I had migraine headaches 10 years. I don’t have migraine headaches anymore.
You gotta keep hoping, every day you gotta say, today could be my day.
Yeah. I’m expecting. You know, I have no interest at all in standing up here for an hour just trying to be a cheerleader.
Yes, I can drive you into a emotion of excitement while you’re here.
That’s not what I want for you. I want you to get a principle.
I want you to get an understanding of something that this is something you can take home with you and when you know how to have this godly attitude and stay full of hope, I am telling you there is no devil in hell that can defeat you.
I don’t care what’s going on in your family, your finances, yes, that doesn’t mean it’s not gonna hurt and be hard, but when you say, God, I believe your word.
I believe it, and you need to say it out loud, I believe your word.
I believe your promises, and I’m gonna keep believing, and keep believing, and keep believing and keep believing and when you do the God of your hope will fill you with joy and peace.
How many of you had a terrible problem at one time in your life and that has been taken care of and is now solved.
Okay. How many of you have a pretty good sized problem right now?
Well, guess what? If God took care of all those other ones why won’t he take care of the one you got right now?
Of course, he will. I love that.
I’ve been wanting to build that prison for a long time and do this.
You know, I believe that being a prisoner of hope releases you from other prisons.
The apostle Paul was a prison of religion.
If you read the new testament, Paul now says, I a prisoner of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Well, I used to be a prisoner of negativity and doubt.
I was a prisoner of my past.
I was a prison of all the years of abuse that I had gone through and I thought nothing good can ever happen to me and you’re just making a mistake if you expect it to because all you’re gonna get is disappointed.
And now I am so full of hope and just expect God to do a may Every day I believe God for favor in my life, and I just wait to see how God shows up and shows out.
Now well, I wish I felt like that, don’t make me come down there and get you.
Well, I I just Yeah, be nice if we all
had your life. Oh, you don’t
know nothing about my life. It just be nice.
Can I tell you something I didn’t get from where I was to where I am by wishing?
I got some stuff to share with you tonight.
I wish it was tonight and
I could just go ahead and start now.
What have you lost during all the years that you didn’t know the truth of God’s word, how many years have you wasted?
Have you lost your identity? Do you not know who you are in Christ?
You spend your time feeling guilty and condemned and depressed and discouraged and downtrodden?
Have you lost your confidence? Do you know who you are in Christ?
Have you lost your friends, your job, your childhood, your mind?
My childhood was stolen from me, I never got to be a kid.
It’s tough when you don’t ever get to be a kid.
And I I don’t remember ever just being a happy carefree I never felt safe ever.
Never. Thank you. But you know what?
I’m just having so much fun now that I
can hardly stand myself. I mean, I am a 69 year old kid.
Now you know what? Just about the
time you start to think, well you know what? What she’s saying makes sense.
You start to feel just a little bit of hope starting to bubble in there, then you might as well expect it, the devil is going to attack.
And he comes in a different way than he did before.
I gotta fight the good fight of faith, then I gotta get my hope back, because if I have my hope back.
Go away I want you to go home with one of these.
Amen? If you need to make it your bathroom.
And when everything that you look at looks like destruction, you just go get in that bathroom, run the water, flush the toilet so you can hear the kids and say, I believe that God is going to do something amazing in my life.
Isaiah 617, this message this morning is not complicated.
I’ve gone over it 4 or 5 times and I thought well am I is this deep enough?
Let me tell you something, this is deep as I’m going this morning.
Get a good attitude. Have some positive thoughts. Say something good.
If you leave this meeting today and you go to lunch with a bunch of people and you sit there and do nothing but talk about your problems the whole time you’re at lunch, I hope somebody hears you and just comes and slaps you.
I mean, I want you talking about, there is no telling what God is going to do in my life.
I tell you what, I’m going to be a prisoner of hope and I’m going to get done.
My trouble. Amen?
Isaiah 617, my gosh this kept me going for years.
When I just had so much pain in my soul trying to get over the abuse that I went through, trying to learn how to be a submissive wife, trying to learn how to be nice.
Oh my gosh, and I’d go back to Isaiah 617, instead of your former shame you shall have a 2 fold recompense, that means reward, instead of dishonor and reproach your people shall rejoice in their portion.
Now watch this, it doesn’t say and when they finally go to heaven they’ll be blessed.
Therefore in their land, they shall possess double.
What they forfeited and everlasting joy.
I know some of you have been sad.
Some of you came to this conference saying God, I gotta have a breakthrough.
You gotta speak something to me. I need a word. This is your word.
I’m telling you that every person can take this.
This is your word from God and anybody else that ever comes to you that needs help, this can be their word from God.
There is nothing negative about our God. Everything he says is hopeful. It’s full of faith.
It’s full of confidence. You are no you are not the tail end of anything.
It’s not too late for you.
God’s got a good plan for your life and it’s never too late to begin again. Double.
See you just don’t understand and there’s no way that I could ever make you understand, what God has done for me.
And you say, well that must be nice for you.
Well see that’s just that attitude I’m trying to get rid of right there.
That’s it right there, we just hit it on the head well that must be nice for you.
I’m glad that you’re so blessed. Caught you didn’t I?
No, you know what you need to say?
If God will do it for 1 person he’ll do it for me. I’m a whosoever.
And God is no respecter of persons.
When you see somebody else with don’t be resentful and jealous, let it be an encouragement to you that if God can do it for them, God can do it for you.
I don’t even know how
to talk about the changes in my life.
But everything that I’m telling you guys that you need to do by the grace and the mercy of God, I had to do it.
I didn’t just get it sitting around wishing.
You have to fight the good fight
of faith. When those negative thoughts come and the doubt and the unbelief and the selfishness and the self centeredness and the weariness and the tiredness.
Can I tell you
a secret? And hopefully it doesn’t hurt your feelings but let
me tell you this. Do you know, sometimes I get so tired of doing this.
I mean, let let’s just be honest.
