The theme for today’s Joyce Meyer daily devotional October 12 2023 is ”The Favorable Time”
SCRIPTURE: He who observes the wind [and waits for all conditions to be favorable] will not sow, and he who regards the clouds will not reap.— Ecclesiastes 11:4 (AMPC)
When the Lord asks His people to do something, there is a temptation to wait for a convenient season (Acts 24:25 KJV). There is always the tendency to hold back until it won’t be so difficult. The problem is that in order to accomplish something for God, you have to be willing to leave your comfort zone and take on new responsibility.
God expects you to do something that will produce good fruit. If you do not use the gifts and talents that He has given you, then you are not being responsible over what He has entrusted to you. You need to be a person who is unafraid of responsibility and change. It is in times of challenge that you build your strength. If you only do what is easy, you will always remain weak and ineffective. The time to move forward is now!
Prayer of the Day: Father, please give me the strength to leave my comfort zone and embrace responsibility. Help me to bear good fruit for You and to move forward without fear, amen.
