Joyce Meyer, one of the world’s leading practical Bible teachers and New York Times best-selling author, shares encouragement and advice to help us enjoy our daily lives.

With a heart to share Christ and love people, Joyce’s messages help people in all walks of life to grow in their faith, learn to study the Bible, find healing from the wounds of life, get answers to life’s questions and encounter the love of God in a powerful way.

I do what I do because I’ve seen god’s power transform my own life, and he will do it for you.
The key to everything is found in god’s word.
I’m Joyce Meyer, and I believe that god can heal you everywhere you heard Failure is part of the human condition.
If you make mistakes, you’re normal.
King David committed adultery and murder And yet, god said David was a man after his own heart.
Now how are you gonna figure that out?
I felt like God showed me something today, and I think if you can just get this, if you don’t get anything else I say, I know it’s gonna help me, and I hope it helps you.
You know why he could say that about David, even though David had that time in his life when he really showed weakness and got into adultery and tend to try to cover it up.
He had Vashiba’s husband killed and lied about that and It took a whole year before he even repented.
He kept trying to hide from it and run from it. And what about Peter?
He denies Christ three times and yet he becomes one of the greatest apostles.
Here’s what I felt like god put in my heart.
David did more right in his life than he did Rome.
And I think that god looks at our whole deal here.
So many people we read about in the Bible they weren’t wicked. They were weak.
And I’m gonna tell you something.
You will do more right in your life than you will do wrong.
God sees everything not just these little things that we do.
So I’ve decided And this is where I’m you may draw back a little.
I’ve decided that I’m gonna start taking a few liberties.
And just to myself, I’m not gonna go around and sound like a braggart to somebody else, but you know, when I get back to my hotel room tonight, if this all comes off good, I may have said, you know what?
I did a good job tonight.
Instead of going back and letting the devil get me to wondering, you know, because one person may be left while I preaching all boy, and that was really stupid.
I wonder if I had the right message. I, you know, I don’t know.
How many of you see how easy the devil gets a You know?
Now as long as I know in my heart between me and god that I can do nothing apart from him, and that I’m not good, but that he’s good.
And if I do good, it’s because he did good through me I think that’s a way of praising god and give an honor to him.
I did a good job.
You know, that book on our own heat on the soul of a woman, that’s a good book.
I mean, it’s a really good book.
And Battlefield of the mind is a really good book. Amen?
Matter of fact, I haven’t written a book that I don’t think is good if you wanna know the truth.
And I am not in any way talking about having a flip on attitude toward our mistakes or our failures or weaknesses or the things that we do wrong.
My gosh. When I when I do something, really wrong, especially like if I if I mistreat somebody.
I mean, I have a revelation on how much god hates that.
And if I mistreat somebody, oh, it grieves me so bad, but it’s not gonna help me get over it to feel guilty about it.
Guilt is our way of trying to pay for our sins, and Jesus paid and doesn’t need your help.
Now Elijah, he was a mess boy.
I mean, First King is 19 1 through 5.
Now Ahab told Jezebel everything Elijah had done and how he had killed all the prophets with the sword.
One translation says he killed 450 bale profits and chopped them up in pieces.
Now don’t just read that. Think about what a job that must have been.
To kill and chopping pieces 450 people.
I might need a break after that.
And then he had the rain thing and the anointing came on him, and he ran twenty miles.
So he kills all these prophets He runs twenty miles.
Now he gets the message.
A, uh, Jezebel has heard what you’ve done and she said to tell you that you’re gonna be dead by this time tomorrow.
Well, this great prophet who just did these amazing things, now it says that he was afraid.
Weakness. And he ran for his life.
And when he came to Baeshiba in Judah, he left his servant there while he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, you know, if you wanna if you wanna have a pity day, you’d like to be alone, So he told his servant, no, you to stay here.
I need to be alone. I sleep myself.
He came to a broom bush, whatever that was, sat down under it and prayed that he might die.
Come on. You had days like this. I’ve had enough Lord.
He said take my life. I’m no better than my ancestors.
The day before, he’s chopping up 450 profits.
I mean, made an absolute fool out of them.
I mean, he said things like they had these sacrifices and they poured water all over him and he said, You see if your gods can send fire down and lick it up, and then I’m gonna do the same thing and we’ll see what my god does.
And so they jumped around and had all their dances and incantations and no help from their gods.
And he even got smart with me.
He said, well, maybe your god went to the bathroom and he just can’t, you know, come down here.
And then of course, when he called on god, the fire came, and then he killed them all with a sword, cut them up in pieces, ran twenty miles.
And the next day, come on. Have you ever liked that?
One day, you are just like so spiritual and so wow.
You’re just loving and you say everything right and you feel so you feel the presence of god.
It’s just like, woman. And then the next day, you don’t get your way about something and you have a pity party and have a fit, get upset.
Come on. Sant, I love this part.
You know what was wrong with him? He was tired.
And you know when we acted bad the most when we’re tired?
And we ought to have enough good sense to just get off by herself somewhere and rest, and never won’t take it out on other people.
So he lay down, he fell asleep, and an angel touched him and said, get up and eat.
He was sleeping and an angel touched him and told him to get up and eat.
He repeated the process again, and then god said, now get back to work.
So I love it. The guy had serious adrenal fatigue.
He was falling apart, needed some anxiety medicine. And god said, have a nap.
Get a good meal. Have another nap. Get another good meal. Now get back to work.
God didn’t throw him out of the Prophethood ministry.
Well, you can’t be a prophet anymore after the dumb way you acted.
Now, I think God remembered the 450 prophets. Some things I’ve learned from my mistakes.
Don’t do things you don’t have peace about.
If you’re getting ready to make a decision right now, and you don’t have peace about the way that you’re getting ready to go back off because you’ll be sorry.
I’ve learned that we all have limits no matter how much we don’t want to, we do.
I’ve learned in the last 2 years that we cannot do what we have always done.
Come on.
No matter how much you like what you’re doing, someday you’re gonna have to give some of it up.
You know, there used to be a time when Dave and I ran the whole minute.
We ran the office. We did everything. I mean, we There was nothing bought or nobody hired.
We we were in on every single thing. And you know what?
We’re not even qualified to do that now because of all the technology.
We don’t even know what’s going on there half the time.
Our 2 sons run the place, and they’re smart and all that stuff.
And they, you know I mean, I’m calling them up called my son, they’ll dance, and I’m listening to a teaching on my computer and I can’t can’t get the sound to go off.
I’ve turned the guy off, but he just keeps talking.
I don’t know how to get don’t know how to get rid of the sound.
I and he’s like, he laughs at me so hard.
I can’t do that anymore.
I have to do what I’m really gifted to do, not just what I can do.
Come on. Did you hear that? Don’t just do what you can do.
Do what you’re gifted to do.
Another thing I’ve learned is that trying to tell a man he’s wrong is useless.
Now ladies, I’m just gonna save you a lot of trouble in your marriage.
Men are right.
And even if you know, they’re not, let them think you think they’re right.
Oh, I saved myself so many hours.
I was like, you’re right, Dave. Everybody’s different.
We need to celebrate their differences instead of trying to change them.
Uh, each one of these is a sermon, you know.
If you’re a controller and a manipulator people are not gonna like you, If you’re a fault finder, people are not gonna like you, Oh, obeying God right away saves a lot of agony.
I’ve learned that I don’t know as much as I think I do and other people know more than I thought they did.
You, man?
I’ve learned that making excuses my problems are bad behavior only puts off the inevitable a fact that in order to be free, I must face truth about me and other things.
I’m gonna encourage you to give yourself a break.
We’re being so hard on yourself.
We all need to be a little bit kinder to ourselves and realize that we’re human beings with limits We need to receive god’s forgiveness, laugh at ourselves, and enjoy ourselves.
Now, you know, men and women are different if you didn’t know that.
I thought I’d pass that on to you. Uh, men are never gonna understand women.
And ladies, you just might as well get that. He doesn’t understand. He’s not gonna understand.
Even if he tells you he understands, he’s just doing it to shut you up.
He really does not get it.
What is my time of the month that you just don’t know how I feel?
Uh, but now, man, you’re great.
You’re wonderful and awesome, but I’m gonna take a few minutes here to build up some ladies.
Women take care of things for people. We fix things. We rescue people.
Would give advice whether it’s wanted or not. We nurture. We hover.
We multitask. We care. We cry. We empathize. We work.
We think we always need to be available, and we don’t know that we can say no.
Now I’m gonna end with a story. There’s little stories called going to bed.
Mom and dad were watching TV when mom said, I’m tired and it’s getting late.
I think I’ll go to bed.
She got up, went to the kitchen, made sandwiches for the next day’s lunches, rinsed out the dessert bowls, took meat out of the freezer for supper the following evening, check the cereal box levels, fill the sugar container, put spoons and bowls on the table, start at the coffee for the next morning.
She then put some wet clothes in the drawer and put a load of clothes into the washer, ironed a shirt, sewed on a loose button, picked up the game pieces left on the table, and put the telephone book back in the drawer.
She watered the plants, emptied a waste basket, hung up the towel to dry.
She yawned and stretched and headed for the bedroom.
She stopped by the desk and wrote a note to the teacher, counted out some cash for the school outing, pulled a textbook out from under the chair, signed a birth their card for a friend, addressed and stamped the envelope and wrote a quick list for the supermarket.
She put both of them near her purse.
Mom then creamed her face, put on moisturizer, brushed and flossed her teeth, trimmed her nails, hubby called, I thought you were going to bed.
I’m on my way, she said.
She put some water in the dog’s bowl and put the cat outside then made sure the doors were locked.
She looked And on each one of the children, turned out a bedside lamp, hung up a shirt, threw some dirty socks in the laundry basket, Had a brief conversation with the one child still doing homework in his room.
She set the alarm, laid out clothing for the next day, straightened up the shoe rack, added 3 things to her to do list for the next day.
About that time, her husband said after he turned off the TV, I think I’m going to bed, and he did.
Alright. Now listen, just for a second.
If you’re here tonight and you have not received Jesus Christ as your savior, we sure don’t want you to slip out of here.
Without letting us pray with you. And, you know, it’s just that simple. You already heard tonight.
You don’t need to be perfect. Jesus died for you.
You’re just the one that he’s looking for tonight.
You don’t have to go try to make yourself better before he’ll receive you.
Matter of fact, you can’t get better without him.
So if you have not received Jesus, maybe you’ve gone church, but, you know, there’s a difference in going to church and being born again.
Have you been born again?
Have you admitted that you can’t do life on your own anymore.
Do you wanna have a friend that will stick closer than any friend you’ve ever had?
Do you wanna know that all your sins are forgiven and have the assurance that when you’re done here on this earth, you’ll live with god for eternity in heaven.
Or maybe you’ve served god in some years past, but you’ve backslidden falling back into sin.
And the devil’s got you pretty much convinced that god will never have you back.
Or truthfully, maybe you just say, I don’t know.
I’ve been going to church for a long time, but I don’t I’m not really sure that I’m saved.
If that’s you, I want you to slip your hand up.
Let me see where you’re at. Come on nice and high. Be bold about it. K.
Watch the hand. Watch the hand. Okay. Now listen.
Well, I’m not gonna bring you down here to the front, but I am gonna ask you to do one thing that takes a little courage.
I want you to stand up. If you raise your hand, I want you just to stand up.
Come on. Stand up. All over the place upstairs.
My there all over the place. Come on. Now keep standing.
Now if you know you should be up, but you’re concerned about what people are gonna think.
Just for once in your life, live your own life, make your own decisions, get up, Alright.
I want everybody in the building to try this prayer with me. Especially the people standing.
You pray this nice and loud.
You’re giving your life away, but you’re gonna receive a life It’s so wonderful.
So wonderful. Say, father god, I love you. Jesus, I believe in you.
I believe you died for me.
You paid for my sins on the cross?
I know that I’m a sinner.
And I’m sorry for the way I’ve lived.
I repent. I turn away from sin.
And I wanna live to please you. Jesus, I receive you now.
Take me just the way I am and make me what you want me to be.
Thank you for saving me. Thank you for loving me.
I’m on my way to heaven. And I wanna enjoy the trip.
