DECEMBER 02, 2018 Receiving - Joyce Meyer Ministries daily devotion

There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear....
— 1 John 4:18

Receiving means “taking; accepting; admitting; embracing; believing; entertaining."
We conducted a survey at our office, asking our employees what one of their greatest concerns was in their walk with God. The number one response was, “When can I know that I am doing enough?”
Perfectionism is fueled with the tyranny of the shoulds and oughts. It is the constant nagging feeling of never doing well enough or being good enough. Perfectionists usually have low self-esteem, and they hope that more perfection in their performance will allow them to feel better about themselves.
If we never feel quite good enough about ourselves, it is easy to believe that God is not satisfied with us either.
Learning to love yourself is the essence of receiving God’s love. It is the ointment that brings healing to your wounded soul. When you receive God’s love and learn to love yourself because of it, you’ll find rest and be free from the disappointment of perfectionism.
Prayer Starter: Lord, help me to receive Your love today and relax in the confidence that You are pleased with me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
