Daily Devotional by Joyce Meyer (THE CHRISTIAN LIFE IS AN ADVENTURE)
But as for you, the anointing (the sacred appointment, the unction) which you received from Him abides [permanently] in you . . . -1 John 2:27
God has great adventures for our lives. It’s exciting when He puts dreams and desires in our hearts, but it can also be challenging, because adversity always comes against us when we try new things. That’s why so many people fail to move forward—the roadblocks in the path ahead intimidate them. But instead of giving up at the thought of a challenge, we can choose to be bold, conﬁdent and courageous through Christ.
God doesn’t want us to live timid, shy, weak, wimpy, fearful, boring lives. He wants us to be bold, conﬁdent and courageous, unafraid to try new things. And it never ceases to amaze me what God will do through a person who simply steps out in faith.
When God asks you to leave the familiar behind—to set out on any new adventure—let His Word encourage you to keep moving forward. Because when you step into what God has for you, His anointing makes the impossible possible.
I want you to let that sink in: God’s anointing (His Presence and power) abides permanently in you. So why should you live a boring life when there’s a great, adventurous life available to you.
