The theme for today’s Joyce Meyer daily devotional October 9 2023 is ”Embracing Growth”
SCRIPTURE: And they shall know [from personal experience] that I am the Lord their God, Who brought them forth out of the land of Egypt that I might dwell among them; I am the Lord their God.— Exodus 29:46 (AMPC).
Consider your life. Are there situations you now handle well that would have previously made you feel fearful and anxious? Of course, there are. As you have been walking with God, He has been strengthening you through experience and hardening you to difficulties.
In the same way, I can also assure you and encourage you that some of the things bothering you right now will not affect you the same way in the future. We often struggle when we do certain things for the first time. But after gaining some experience, that struggle is no longer present. We must press through the feelings, gain some experience leaning on God, and never allow circumstances to control us.
Prayer of the Day: Lord, I can’t do this without You. Please give me Your strength to get through the challenges in my life and guide my reactions to face whatever lies ahead with Your grace, amen.
