Joyce Meyer’s Daily Devotional For 10th January, 2018

Joyce Meyer

ThemeSettle the Dispute

To be successful in accomplishing God’s will for our lives, we must have determination. One definition of determine is, “to settle a dispute by an authoritative decision or a pronouncement.” This definition encourages me because I make “pronouncements” often as a way of building my determination in certain areas.

For example, when I’m weary and tempted to feel sorry for myself for some reason, I tell myself, “Oh, no you don’t! Stop your whining and straighten up! God loves me, and I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!”

The Constitution of Heaven – John Piper

Galatians 5:17 tells us that the flesh and the spirit don’t get along. Remember, the definition of determine carries the idea of settling a dispute. This is important because if you are going to commit to anything, you will have to settle the never-ending dispute between your flesh and your spirit.

You may not always want to make the effort to be determined, but don’t give up or you’ll be outside of God’s will. When you’re tempted to give up, make “pronouncements” based on God’s Word, encouraging yourself to stay determined and settle the dispute between your spirit and flesh as you follow His plan.
