Joyce Meyer Quotes on Faith: 10 Memorable Statements From Christian Evangelist

By    |   Friday, 08 May 2015 07:55 PM

World-famous televangelist and best-selling Christian author Joyce Meyer is looked to by Christians for words of wisdom on living a life filled with faith. Abused by her father throughout her childhood, Meyer has used her struggles as a foundation for reaching out to others.

With wit, humor, and an unpretentious tone, she appeals to worldwide audiences and often cites her girlhood abuse in talks about dealing with life’s challenges.

Frequently at the center of controversy concerning her lavish lifestyle and large salary, Meyer maintained that she is living in a way that is compatible with her Christian teachings. Apparently, her followers agreed because her prominence has continued to grow, as do her book sales and the crowds at her conferences.

Here are 10 of Joyce Meyer’s most noteworthy quotes about keeping faith in God:

1. “Simply put, fear is the opposite of faith. God wants us to walk by faith, and Satan wants us to walk by fear.”

2. “Some of you might say, ‘Well, I have faith. I believe in Jesus.’ Frankly, it's one thing to say you have faith, but it's an entirely different matter to apply your faith to life's challenges.”

3. “Faith is something that must be released. You can possess faith, but you must put it to use. A muscle that is not used gets weak and shrivels up. If you don't use your faith, then it's no different than not having any.”

4. “Give your circumstance over to Jesus and be confident that He's got it all under control. Your life will change dramatically once you unleash your faith.”

5.
“We must stop trying to make things happen the way we want and get to the place where we desire to please God more than ourselves. The Christ in us has to supersede what we want. Faith and the Word of God will help you overcome worry.”

6. “Do I ever doubt? Oh, sure. You deal with doubt all the time. You have to choose to believe God in every situation. I remind myself all the time, get out of fear. Get out of doubt. Get back in faith.”
In a 2005 interview with CNN’s Larry King

7. “God wants to be involved in our everyday life. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, He wants to be part of and invited into everything that we do. We need to let God out of the Sunday morning box that we try to keep him in.”
In an interview with Beliefnet

8. "There's a scripture in the Bible in Mark 8:34 — I'm going to quote the Amplified Bible — where Jesus says that the cross God asks us to carry is to forget yourself, lose sight of yourself, and all your own interests.”
In an interview with Beliefnet

9. “We have to each be satisfied with doing the part that God has called us to do. We have to trust Him with our assignment.”
In an interview with Called magazine

10. “There are two main things I believe we must do to please God. Number one is to have faith in Jesus, and number two is to desire to please Him with all our heart. It is important to understand that we cannot have one without the other. The Bible says without faith it is impossible to please God (See Hebrews 11:6).”
–From her book, “Approval Addiction: Overcoming the Need to Please Everyone”
