The Theme for Joyce Meyer Daily Devotionals June 27 2023 is Persistence Wins.
SCRIPTURE: I have fought the good and worthy and noble fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith [firmly guarding the gospel against error].— 2 Timothy 4:7 (AMP)
One of the most important traits a Christian can have is determination. A child of God who refuses to give up is one who will enjoy victory. Jesus endured the cross for the joy of the prize awaiting Him (see Hebrews 12:2), and we should do the same thing.
Persistence is necessary, because there will be difficult times in life. Jesus never promised that when we start following Him, we’ll no longer deal with problems. Life isn’t always easy, but God is always with us. Going through challenges instead of giving up is what makes us strong.
When you feel weary, remember that God is with you and that He is the strength you need to make it through to the finish. Receive His strength now as you wait in His presence.
Prayer of the Day: Lord, please help me to be determined and persistent in following You, most especially during difficult times. Help me to receive Your strength to make it to the finish line, amen.
