Joyce Meyer Daily Devotional December 19 2023.

    The theme for today’s Joyce Meyer daily devotional December 19 2023 is ”A Busy Mind”

    God never told us to have a busy mind, but a mind that is filled with peace. I recently experienced several days in which I was extremely tired. Actually, exhausted was more like it, and I couldn’t understand why. I was getting good sleep, and, yes, I had a lot going on, but that is not unusual for me.

    After putting up with it for a couple of days and complaining frequently, I finally asked God why I was so tired. I just didn’t understand. He showed me that it wasn’t physical tiredness that I felt, but mental tiredness. I had been thinking too much! I must say I was surprised, but as I took an honest look at all the things that were on my mind—while I was simultaneously doing a lot of things like recording for television, working on a book, and traveling—I understood what God was showing me.

    In addition to all that, I was attempting to do a lot of creative thinking about upcoming teaching seminars, books, making changes in some ministry areas, finances, and other things. But I should have been giving my mind to what I was doing, instead of doing one thing and thinking about lots of other things. With God’s help, I made a change and decided to give my mind a short vacation, and it helped a lot. Perhaps this example will help you too!

    Prayer of the Day: Father, please help me keep my mind on what I am doing and remember that You want me to have peace of mind, not a busy mind!
