The theme for today’s Joyce Meyer daily devotional November 14 2023 is ”Stable and Mature in Christ”
SCRIPTURE: …I will not be enslaved by anything [and brought under its power, allowing it to control me].— 1 Corinthians 6:12 (AMP)
Many people have convinced themselves that they are overly emotional people. They say, “I can’t help it. My emotions get the best of me.” If you’ve ever felt that way, let me tell you that you can be stable and mature in Christ. You don’t have to be a victim of your emotions.
No one is “just emotional”; we may have chosen to allow ourselves to be led by our emotions until doing so became a habit, but with God’s help we can change. God has given us a spirit of discipline and self-control, but we have to use it.
God gave you emotions so you could feel good and bad things, but He never intended those feelings to rule you. With God’s help, you can discipline your mind, your will, and your emotions. You can be a stable and mature Christian who follows God and not your emotions.
Prayer of the Day: Father, I come to You today asking that you guide me toward emotional stability and spiritual maturity. I want to grow up in You, Lord Jesus, amen.
