Joyce Meyer 27th June 2020 Devotional – Learn to Love Yourself
TODAY’S TOPIC: LEARN TO LOVE YOURSELF
SCRIPTURE: Let him turn away from wickedness and shun it, and let him do right. Let him search for peace (harmony; undisturbedness from fears, agitating passions, and moral conflicts) and seek it eagerly. [Do not merely desire peaceful relations with God, with your fellowmen, and with yourself, but pursue, go after them!] — 1 Peter 3:11 (AMPC)
Today’s Message: Joyce Meyer 27th June 2020 Devotional
The Bible teaches us not to be selfish and self-centered, but it never says not to love ourselves in a balanced way. I always say, “Don’t be in love with yourself, but love yourself.” If you don’t love yourself, you will be miserable, because you’re always with yourself. You are the one person you will never get away from, not even for one second of your life.
Most people don’t really like themselves. They’re very self-critical; they reject themselves, and might even hate themselves. I once heard a young woman ask a pastor to pray for her because she hated herself. He looked at her with a furrowed brow and took a step backward in shock. He said very firmly, “Who do you think you are to hate yourself after God sent His only Son to suffer so horribly and die in your place?
If God loves you that much, surely you can learn to love yourself.” His statement opened her eyes to the mistake she was making, and at that moment she began her journey of learning to love and accept herself. I encourage you to do the same if you haven’t already.
Take a step of faith today and say, “I love myself with the love of God. I accept myself.” As you begin to think and talk differently about yourself, your entire attitude toward yourself will change. You will become a more positive, confident person, and you’ll begin to enjoy your life so much more. As you do, you will see the love of God flowing not only to yourself, but also through you to other people.
Prayer Starter: Father, please help me to see myself the way You see me so I can love myself in a healthy way. Thank You for loving me and for paying such a high price to redeem me. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
