Joyce Meyer – Choosing the Peaceful Path

By your steadfastness and patient endurance you shall win the true life of your souls.

— Luke 21:19 (AMPC)

You need to learn not to let your mind and emotions get the best of you, especially when it involves things over which you have no control.

Suppose you are on your way to an important interview and get caught in a traffic jam. How do you react? Is it worth getting all upset and throwing some kind of fit? Wouldn’t it be much better for you and everyone else if you just remained calm, even if you were late for the interview? If you have done your best God will do the rest.

Refuse to get wild when things don’t go as you planned. Refuse to allow your mind, will, and emotions to rule your spirit. In your patience you will learn to possess your soul.

Prayer Starter: Lord, thank You for loving me. Because of You, I no longer need to get upset over things I can’t do anything about. Help me to stay calm. In Jesus’ name, amen.
