Joyce Meyer Daily Devotional December 15 2023.

    The theme for today’s Joyce Meyer daily devotional December 15 2023 is ”The Test of Character”

    SCRIPTURE: He was guilty of no sin, neither was deceit (guile) ever found on His lips. When He was reviled and insulted, He did not revile or offer insult in return; [when] He was abused and suffered, He made no threats [of vengeance]; but He trusted [Himself and everything] to Him Who judges fairly.— 1 Peter 2:22-23 (AMPC)

    One definition of charisma is “great personal magnetism; charm,” but character is “moral or ethical strength, integrity.” There are a lot of people who have charisma, but no character. We see this all the time in life.

    Our character is revealed by what we do when nobody is watching. This is a key to walking in confidence with God. Many people will do the right thing when somebody is watching them, but they won’t do the right thing when nobody sees but God. As Christians, our commitment should be, “I am going to do the right thing simply because it is right.”

    Character is also seen when we do the right thing to others even though the right thing is not yet happening to us. As demonstrated by Jesus, one test of our character is, will we treat somebody right who is not treating us right? Will we bless someone who is not blessing us? It all comes down to what’s in our heart, whether we trust Him who judges fairly.

    Prayer of the Day: Lord Jesus, how You responded to those who reviled and mistreated You was amazing, and humbling. May Your Spirit keep reshaping my spirit and character that I might reflect the same, amen.
