We would also like to Praise God for the great impact that other ministries and people have had on our lives and on our spiritual walk…

Joyce Meyer Ministries

“Over the years, God has provided Joyce with many opportunities to share her testimony and the life-changing message of the Gospel. Having suffered sexual abuse as a child as well as just dealing with the struggles of everyday life, Joyce discovered the freedom to live victoriously by applying God’s Word to her life and in turn desires to help others do the same. Joyce is and continues to be an incredible testimony of the dynamic, redeeming work of Jesus Christ.

She teaches on a number of topics with a particular focus on the mind, mouth, moods, and attitudes. Her candid communication style allows her to share openly and practically about her experiences so others can apply what she has learned to their lives.

Through her teachings and resources, God has provided opportunities to meet the needs of the suffering and bring the Gospel in a practical way. Joyce travels extensively, visiting the worldwide outreaches of Hand of Hope, Joyce Meyer Ministries World Missions.” (http://www.joycemeyer.org/AboutUs/JoyceBio.aspx)

“Through our missions arm, Hand of Hope, we provide global humanitarian aid, feed the hungry, clothe the poor, minister to the elderly, widows, and orphans, visit prisoners and reach out to people of all ages and in all walks of life. Joyce Meyer Ministries is built on a foundation of faith, integrity, and dedicated supporters who share this call.” (http://www.joycemeyer.org/AboutUs/OurMission.aspx)

“The entire Bible is written about people that were extraordinary or unusually excellent and who deserve our attention because of being wonderfully different, and the Bible is also written about people who were the complete opposite, people who did everything, but bring glory to God. I believe God did that purposely so that we could study those people’s lives and have an example on how to live and how not to live. Out of the extraordinary men and women that the Bible talks about, they all have four things in common.

The first is that they all had their faults, from adultery, like David, to pride like Joseph. We all fall short of the glory of God-we all sin.

The second is that they all went through trials as God perfected them, matured them, and refined them; like Moses in the desert, to Jonah in the belly of the fish. These men and women were no different than any other human in the world in the fact that they still had sin in their lives and they still needed to be made more mature in God so that God could trust them with His works…

The third thing that these men and women have in common is that the men and women loved God, no matter their faults, with their whole hearts. They were all willing to give up everything for the God that they loved. Including, disobeying a law that went against God, knowing that the punishment was that they would be thrown into a fire or into a den of lions…

And the forth reason is, that because these people allowed God to refine them, and because of their great love for God, God was then able to use them in incredible ways to glorify Him. Using them to save entire nations, to heal the sick, and raise the dead. And the blessings on these people’s lives were more than most can imagine.” (Taken from “A Heart After God” by Erin Wolff Chapter 1 Jacob Vs. Esau Desire God More Than All Things)

We can learn from the people mentioned in the Bible and we can also learn from men and women who have lived since the days of the Bible; the men and women of faith who, although have had and do have their faults, have loved God with their whole hearts and have been used greatly by God. They have been used not only because of their great love for God, but also because of their hunger and their willingness. “…God is not a respecter of persons.” Acts 10:34 KJV God wants to do the very same things in your life and through your life that He did in the lives of the men and women in the Bible and also since that time.

Look to God for who He is, not to man!
