Today I am going to share some quotes with you that have enlightened my heart, put a smile on my face, and in some instances made me laugh out loud! These are quotes from Joyce Meyer, an amazing woman of God, down to earth, getting us back to the basics.. I seriously heart her! I plan on highlighting one person a week, but Joyce’s quotes have by far planted them self in me deep! Thank you Jesus for Joyce Meyer.
You can be pitiful or powerful, but you cannot be both.
When you have a problem, go to the Throne and not the phone!
Sitting in church does not make one a Christian any more than sitting in a garage makes one a car.
Believe in Him – your feelings will catch up later!
Determine to use your mouth to bring encouragement not discouragement 🙂
Let Him be the Leader and you be the follower.
We do not need self-confidence, we need God-confidence!
Learn from the past and prepare for the future, but live in the present.
Grace is not the freedom to sin; it is the power to live a holy life.
Everybody’s always looking for a word, here’s a word: Walk in love, that will keep you busy for the rest of your life.

The Holy Spirit..a gift to you…straight from God the Father, made possible through Jesus Christ. An AMAZING gift!
I Corinthians 2:12
We have not received the spirit of the world but the Spirit who is from God, that we may understand what God has freely given us.
When I receive a gift, I explore it! I want to know everything about it, and how it applies to me. SO while studying, the application to self is huge. And not only for me, but for every believer.
I Corinthians 2:10-11
but God has revealed it to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.
For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the man’s spirit within him? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.
The Holy Spirit searches and knows the deep things of God! HE knows HIS thoughts! try wrapping your mind around that for a while. HE lives in you…
In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.
And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God’s will.
God knows the mind of the Spirit as well as the Spirit knowing HIS..and the Spirit prays/intercedes for us! This is something to do the a happy dance about! SO many times in weakness, and in walking through the fire, we just don’t know how to pray, and we lay it at HIS feet, and the Spirit of God already knows the plan and is interceding for all that is necessary to complete the plan, and bring us to the exact place that God has already planned for us.
This is just another taste of what I have been working on as I press on to fulfill my calling, learning more about the gift that GOD has given us to insure we are overcomers. Ultimatly, its your choice to follow the Spirit or grieve HIM. But the Gift remains..
What do you do with a new gift? How do you respond to its application for you personally? (I am not looking for a Christianese answer, I am looking for your answer to how you recieve a gift, holidays or otherwise)
