JOYCE MEYER DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR 31 JANUARY 2024 MESSAGE
TODAY’S TOPIC: CONFIDENCE IS CONTAGIOUS
SCRIPTURE: Forty years old was I when Moses the servant of the Lord sent me from Kadesh-barnea to scout out the land. And I brought him a report as it was in my heart. But my brethren who went up with me made the hearts of the people melt; yet I wholly followed the Lord my God. Joshua 14:7-8 (AMPC)
JOYCE MEYER DEVOTIONAL FOR 31 JANUARY 2024
I know what it is like to live in fear. Fear can actually make you sick to your stomach. It can make you so tense and nervous that everyone around you notices that something is wrong; it’s that evident in your facial expressions and your body language. What’s more, just as confidence is contagious, so is the lack of self-confidence.
When we possess no inner confidence, no one else has confidence in us either. Imagine a timid, cowering basketball player, standing in the corner of the court with her arms wrapped around herself. Is anyone going to pass her the ball? Is anybody going to call out plays to her?
When we think people are rejecting us, we feel hurt by them. The basketball player in the example above might think that her teammates hate her or have something against her. But, for fearful, under-confident people, the root of the problem is that they are rejecting themselves. They are rejecting the person God intended them to be.
Prayer of the Day: Lord, I want to wholly follow You no matter where You lead me. I believe that You made me for who I am, and I accept that by faith. Your creation is good. Thank You, amen.
