Joyce Meyer Daily Devotional 22 April 2022 MESSAGE
When we receive Christ as our Savior, our spirit is saved, and we are born again. Our spirit is made holy, and God comes to dwell in us. The Word of God, when it is received and becomes rooted in our hearts, has the power to change us from the inside out. As we study God’s Word and meditate on His promises, spiritual growth happens.
Spiritual maturity doesn’t develop from mere church attendance, giving large sums of money, or serving on a committee—it develops from learning and applying the Word of God in your everyday life.
While it is good to attend church, give, and serve, it is your personal relationship with God and following the Holy Spirit that brings about maturity. True spiritual growth comes when you apply God’s Word in every situation and step beyond your comfort zone and trust Him in all things, especially the ones you cannot control.
Prayer Starter: Father, thank You for Your Word and for walking with me as I grow in my faith and my relationship with You. I love You, amen.

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.
