Joyce Meyer's favorite Bible verses

I had such a bad start in life. But when I read the promises of God in His Word, I knew I could overcome my past!

Joyce Meyer

As I look back on my life, I can see that God used the Bible verses I list here to fundamentally change both my personal and professional life. In fact, these verses taught me how to enjoy my daily life and truly live my Christianity.

The promises that God gives us in his word are to everyone who puts his faith in him and lives according to his ways. Romans 2:11 says that God prefers no one, and He wants each and every one of us to have the abundant life that Jesus died for.

I hope that through these verses you will gain a greater understanding of God's Word and learn to apply the biblical principles in it to your life. I also hope these teachings will encourage you to move forward in your personal journey with God. His word contains so much that can change your life!

God loves you very much and his plans for you are better than you can imagine. The best way to get to know God better and better and to experience His work in your life is to study His Word. I am very happy that you are about to discover what he has in store for you!

If someone builds on this foundation, be it with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, then the work of each [individual clearly visible, public] will become known [it will be revealed for what it is] ; because the day [of Christ] will reveal and proclaim it, for it will be exposed with fire, and the fire will test and critically evaluate the character and worth of the work that each person has done. If the work that each person has built on this foundation [any result of his labor, whatever it is, this test] survives, he will get his reward. But if a person's work burns [during the test] he will suffer loss [of everything] [and lose his wages] even if he is saved himself, but only like one who has walked through fire.
