Joyce Meyer 16 February 2020 Devotional – No Longer Hopeless
TODAY’S TOPIC: NO LONGER HOPELESS
SCRIPTURE: Love never fails…. — 1 Corinthians 13:8 (NIV)
Is there someone in your life who’s difficult to love? Maybe you’ve tried and tried to help them, and nothing seems to work. I want to share a story with you.
TODAY’S WORD – Joyce Meyer 16 February 2020 Devotional
Before Dave and I met, he asked God to send him someone he could help. When God sent him me, he got more than he bargained for! I had serious, serious problems. I’m sure many men in his position would have given up. But Dave continued to pray and seek God for ways to help me, even when I acted like I didn’t want help.
At times, he wept because he didn’t know what to do. He’s even shared with me that he would often go for a drive in the car to pray and cry, and then come home trusting that God would change me.
Today I’m so thankful that God was faithful to Dave and me. He’s brought healing, deliverance, and wholeness to me. He had to teach me to think differently, to trust people, to allow myself to be loved, and to love others.
Our journey was not easy, but Dave refused to give up on me, and we both refused to give up on God. Though our early years were difficult, we’ve had so many years of happiness, and we look forward to many more.
Love never fails. Don’t give up on people, but keep walking in love and seeking God, and He’ll bring the change, freedom and healing you need!
Prayer Starter: Father, help me to not give up on the people You’ve placed in my life. Thank You for working in them, and for giving me the grace to continue to show them love. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
