The Theme for Joyce Meyer Daily Devotionals July 19 2023 is ”Success Is Possible”
SCRIPTURE: Then [the guiding angel] showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the Angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at Joshua’s right hand to be his adversary and to accuse him.— Zechariah 3:1 (AMPC).
If you’re a woman, you might expect the world to say, “No! You can’t do that, you’re a woman.” That is what I heard when God called me into the ministry. Most of my family and friends turned against me. At that time, I didn’t really understand the scriptures that people tried to use against me, but I’m not the first woman to be told that I should ignore God’s leading on my life or was offered suggestions that conflicted with my primary purpose or desire of serving God. As I mentioned earlier, the war between women and Satan got its start in the Garden of Eden and has not stopped. Satan hates women because it was a woman who gave birth to Jesus, and it is Jesus who has defeated Satan.
However, don’t think that just because the devil is against you that success is out of your reach. Even though most of the world told me I could not do it, I have been doing it for over 40 years and intend to continue until Jesus calls me out of this world. God has done it despite what everyone thought. People and the devil cannot stop God!
Prayer of the Day: Lord, I’m so glad that You have defeated Satan on the cross. I feel the accusations of the adversary, but I will triumph, amen.
