Today Joyce Meyer teaches us what to do when we are in tough situations or when things are not going our way. she wants us to take action only if you have a direction from God. she wants us to ask God to open our mind to new ways of doing and seeing things and if he shows you something, then do it.
Joyce Meyer Daily Devotionals May 9 2023 Topic: Do What the Crisis Demands..
SCRIPTURE: Therefore put on God’s complete armor, that you may be able to resist and stand your ground on the evil day [of danger], and, having done all [the crisis demands], to stand [firmly in your place].— Ephesians 6:13 (AMPC).
When you are in a difficult situation, do what you know to do, but don’t feel pressured to take action if you have no direction from God. Ask God to open your mind to new ways of doing and seeing things. If He shows you something, then do it, and if He doesn’t, then remain peaceful and trust that He will work for you and do what you cannot do.
Think and speak, “It is not shameful to not know what to do, nor should I feel pressured that I must ‘do something.'” Nobody has all the answers, all the time, except God. Stay peaceful and stand firmly in Christ, trusting Him to guide you.
Prayer of the Day: Father, thank You for Your guidance and direction. Thank You for the reminder that it is not shameful to not know what to do. Please open my mind to new ways of doing and seeing things. May Your will be done in my life, amen.
