Joyce Meyer Daily Devotional 3 February 2022 MESSAGE
A while back as I was lying in bed, I suddenly felt an overwhelming need to repent for any complaining I had ever done in my life. I was watching a movie in which the main character had experienced a great tragedy and endured tremendous difficulty and yet he was maintaining a good attitude. We often complain and murmur about minor inconveniences and difficulties that, in reality, are nothing compared to what some people endure.
At that time, I was about to leave for a mission trip to Africa, and I knew I would see unimaginable suffering and deprivation. Those trips were wonderful for many reasons, especially to help renew my commitment to help and live for others.
Do you complain about things that are not that important in the larger scope of life? Are you extremely blessed but have fallen into a trap of focusing on what you don’t have instead of what you do have? I know I do at times, and I am grateful for the reminder from the Lord to be thankful in all things (see 1 Thessalonians 5:18) and realize that complaining is evil in His ears.
Let us be committed to thank God throughout each day of our lives and voice that thankfulness to Him.
Prayer Starter: Lord Jesus, please forgive me for any complaining I have ever done in my life and help me realize how good You are to me. I want to be extremely thankful for all the blessings You give me.

Have you ever made Jesus the Lord and Savior of your life?
If not, pray this prayer and start a new life in Christ.
Dear God, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I admit that I am not right with You, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved (Rom. 10:9). I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that Jesus is the Lord and Savior of my life. Thank You for saving me! In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
