You Are Reading Joyce Meyer Daily Devotional 20th December 2017
Topic: Give God Your Cares and Follow Your Heart
Key Verse: Not that we [have the audacity to] venture to class or [even to] compare ourselves with some who exalt and furnish testimonials for themselves! However, when they measure themselves with themselves and compare themselves with one another, they are without understanding and behave unwisely.(2 Corinthians 10:12)
MESSAGE: “To thine own heart be true,” the old saying goes. It remains a timely and relevant life lesson that all of us would do well to remember. When we veer off the course that our heart is advising us to follow, we can make our lives very difficult.
Now I’m not talking about selfish desires. I’m talking about pursuing the desires that God puts in your heart. What do you want out of life? What do you believe is God’s will for you? Are you pursuing it?
Some people have too many cares and worries that keep them from stepping out and following what’s in their heart. They’ve decided it’s out of their reach.
The Bible says we should cast all our cares upon God for He cares for us. Whatever worry you have that is keeping you from following your heart, you need to give it to God and let Him take care of it.
He wants you to follow the desire He’s placed in you. Let God take care of your cares and follow your heart. You can trust Him. He cares for you!
PRAYER: God, sometimes I don’t pursue what You’ve placed in my heart because of my worries and cares, so today, I give them to You.I know You can handle them, and You want me to be free to follow my heart. Amen!
