The theme for today’s Joyce Meyer daily devotional October 26 2023 is ”What God Says About You”
SCRIPTURE: [So that we might be] to the praise and the commendation of His glorious grace (favor and mercy), which He so freely bestowed on us in the Beloved.— Ephesians 1:6 (AMPC)
It is not God’s desire for us to feel frustrated and condemned in our lives. He wants us to realize that we are His children, and we are pleasing to Him.
There are plenty of voices trying to tell us who and what we aren’t, but the closer we get to God, the more we hear Him telling us who we are—righteous in Christ, loved and well-pleasing to our heavenly Father.
The devil tells us we cannot possibly be acceptable to God because of our faults and sins, but God tells us that we are accepted in the beloved because of what His Son, Jesus, has already done for us.
If you have dealt or are dealing with any guilt or condemnation today, remember that God never reminds us of how far we have fallen. He always reminds us of how far we can rise. He reminds us of how much we have overcome, how precious we are in His sight, and how much He loves us.
Prayer of the Day: Father, please drown out the voices of doubt and unbelief, and let me hear only Your voice of love. Please remind me that I am always accepted and loved by You because of Jesus, amen.
