6 Things You should Say Every Day of Your Life - Part 1

By Joyce Meyer



I'm blessed and I'm a blessing.

When I get up in the morning, I like to say a prayer of blessing. "God I bless this day in Jesus' name. I bless my husband. I bless my children and my sons-in-law and daughters-in-law. I bless my grandchildren. I'm blessed because of Jesus. And I'm living under the blessing of God." It really helps me start my day with a right attitude and focus.

I'm So Thankful!

Have a thanksgiving session each day. Take time to thank God for everything you can think of, from hot water to food to a roof over your head. And tell people you're thankful for what they do for you.

Psalm 107:1-2 says, "O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; for His mercy and Loving-kindness endure forever! Let the redeemed of the Lord say so..."

If you're in the middle of a difficult situation, trust that God's doing something good right now-bringing circumstance together, changing hearts, changing minds. Don't wait until you're on the other side of the blessing to thank Him for it. Remember...we're the redeemed of the Lord and we are supposed to "say so!"

I was made to encourage

First Thessalonians 5:11 tells us to encourage one another and build each other up. Say something positive to the people around you about who they are or how much you appreciate them. Or tell them how much God loves them and wants to bless them.

Encouragement is powerful. It can actually make a person feel better. I remember one time when I got a text message from my youngest son. All it said was, " I love you, Mommy!" At that moment, I literally felt refreshed by his words. They gave me the extra close of encouragement I needed that day.

Think about the people you're going to be around today and ask God to put word of encouragement in your heart for them.

When it’s all said & done

Learning to pursue what truly matters
Years ago, I got to a place in my life where things were going pretty well… I had everything I pretty much asked for. Yet I still had this vague feeling of discontentment. Something was just not right on the inside.
Have you ever felt that way? Maybe you’ve wondered, What’s wrong with me?, like I did.       
Although I wanted all of the “fruit” of God’s spirit – love, joy, peace, patience – operating in my life, I wasn’t seeking it. So spiritually speaking, I wasn’t a very deep person. I has my priorities backwards…as many of us do at times. We want the money, the house, the promotion or whatever that thing is, So we pursue that rather than the true treasure of God’s presence.
But just like a tree needs deep, wide- reaching roots in order to support big, strong branches that can withstand the harsh elements of the outdoors, Christians need to be deeply rooted and grounded in the Word of God. It’s His love that sustains us- not our “stuff,”
 Don’t …

God Made Us UniQue Part 2

But the pot he was shaping from the clay was marred in his hands; so the potter formed it into another pot, shaping it as seemed best to him.
                                                                                                                                        Jeremiah 18:4

Yet, O Lord, you are our Father; we are the clay, and you our Potter, and we all are the work of your hand.                                                                                                                                       Isaiah 64:8

·Marred – to detract from the perfection or wholeness of: spoil  

I know a lot of you girls have heard of the potter. For those that haven’t heard of the potter, it is a person that works with clay and forms it into a pot, using a machine and his hands. Potters work real hard forming clay into a pot. When the clay is marred, he has to redo his work until it comes out perfect. This is an awesome example on how God forms us. See God is the Pot…

A Lifestyle of Authentic Peace

I can’t overemphasize the importance of peace as a real and practical benefit of our covenant relationship with God. His peace should not be an infrequent surprise but an ongoing rule of our lives. The apostle Paul underscored the essential nature of peace in 2 Thessalonians 3:16.  Did you notice how crucial he considered peace to be? “At all times.” “In every way,” Peace can be possible in any situation.
Isaiah used the word peace twenty-six times. God continually promised peace when His captives returned wholeheartedly to the Lord. The familiar messianic passage, Isaiah 9:6, identifies peace with Christ as the “Prince of Peace,” The next verse connects the Prince of Peace to His reign: Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne. Many of us have memorized the words of Isaiah 26:3: You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trust in you.
