Praying our way through the day is equally as important as devoting set-apart time to prayer. I believe God wants us to offer up acknowledgments of Him, make requests, and offer thanksgivings throughout each day. Learn to let prayer be as comfortable as breathing!

~ Joyce Meyer Ministries

Praying shouldn’t be a chore, in fact it should be the complete opposite – It should be something we do naturally because we want to, rather than something we do just when we can fit it in to our busy lives.

Just as we always want to talk to our friends and family, so we should want to talk to God whenever we can. So pray each day about everything and anything, whenever and wherever you are. God hear every one of your prayers.

The time we spend with God should be precious, it should calm our hearts and minds, and should let us focus  solely on God.

When we’re doing things that aren’t directly involving God, such as working, parenting, driving etc, have you noticed how the devil is as evident during those times?

However when you want to sit down and spend some quiet time with God, that’s when we can so easily find ourselves procrastinating, and doing all sorts of things that in reality, could have waited until later. That’s because that’s when the devil is at his worst, trying to distract us from God.

So keep focuses, don’t procrastinate, but instead spend quality time with God.

Can we really all do something for God? Of course we can!

No two of us are the same. No two of us have the same talents or skills. No two of us have the same knowledge or experience. But we all have life experience and God given talents.

That’s why God needs each of us. He needs people with all sorts of skills, and therefore he needs each of us. We just need to be willing to do what God wants us to do!

Are you ready and willing to do what God wants you to do?

Just because what’s going on in your life right now doesn’t feel good, doesn’t mean God’s not working. ~ Joyce Meyer

It can be tough to believe things will get better for you when you’re in the middle of a difficult time in your life. But even during those times God is with you. Remember that God will always answer your prayers, maybe not when you want or how you want, but he will answer your prayers.

Captain – a person who is at the head of, or in authority over others; chief; leader.

Even when there is a leader, a captain, in charge it doesn’t mean everything will go smoothly for the team they are in charge of.

When you’re in a war and fighting a battle, and you have God as your captain, there’s no way you are not going to win! ~ Joyce Meyer

For us as Christians, God is our captain. However, even that doesn’t that mean that we won’t have to fight any battles?

Far from it, every day is a battle against evil! But it is a battle we can win if we keep following our captain, God.

 

I came across the following quote by Joyce Meyer – What better words can there be to start a new year with:

God wants you to break free from your past and set your face toward your future with hope, courage, and expectation. And the best way I know to never give up on your future is to refuse to be trapped in your past.

We all have said and done things which we’re not proud of, and wish we could take back, but fortunately when it comes to God, He willingly forgives us, and wants us to look forward rather than back.

So at the start of this new year, no matter what previous years brought your way, look forward to 2018 and beyond with hope and expectation, knowing that your faith can help you break free from your past and start a new future with God this year.

You hold the future in your hands
You know my dreams and you have a plan
And as you light my way, I’ll follow you
My eyes on all of the above
My soul secure in all you’ve done
My minds made up
And you are the only one for me
Jesus, savior, in my life you are everything
My future decided, I will praise your name
And I know that I am, I am yours
Yeah, I know that I am, I am yours

Even though we know God can take care of us much better than we ever could, we still think we can do better on our own sometimes.

How stubborn we can be!

God can help us through the bad times as well as the good ones, we just need to trust Him that He knows best.

We cannot love people if we are afraid of being hurt or taken advantage of. Perfect love casts out fear! ~ Joyce Meyer
Life can be tough sometimes can’t it? We make friends, we get into relationships, we become good friends, but then something happens which leaves us feeling hurt or taken advantage of. In turn this makes us reluctant to get into future relationships because we’re scared we will get hurt all over again.

True love however can help us overcome any fears we may have of being hurt again. The purest love is that given to us by God, and therefore His love can help us overcome any of our fears.

Begin again

Whoever you are, wherever you are, whatever you’ve been through, it’s never too late to begin again. ~ Joyce Meyer

Another reminder at the start of this new year that God is still there for you. God will give you a second chance, a third chance…however many chances you need before you begin your life with Him at the centre of it.

What better words to start of the new year than these from Joyce Meyer:

God wants you to break free from your past and set your face toward your future with hope, courage, and expectation. And the best way I know to never give up on your future is to refuse to be trapped in your past.

We all have said and done things which we’re not proud of, and wish we could take back, but fortunately when it comes to God, He willingly forgives us, and wants us to look forward rather than back.

So at the start of this new year, no matter what previous years brought your way, look forward to 2017 and beyond with hope and expectation knowing that with your faith in God you can break free from your past.
