Bestselling author Joyce Meyer introduces a new gift book series that combines her life-changing messages with a beautiful devotional format.
Joyce Meyer enables readers to become true "human beings" not "human doings" in Never Lose Heart; equipping them to stand against stress, discouragement, worry, insecurity, depression and fear.
A few years ago, I went to a doctor because I was constantly sick. He told me the symptoms were the result of being under stress. I was sleeping wrong, eating improperly, and pushing myself harder and harder -- all in the name of working for the Lord.
The word stress was originally an engineering term used to refer to the amount of force that a beam or other physical support could bear without collapsing under the strain. In our time, stress has been expanded to include mental and emotional tension.
Stress is a normal part of everyone's life. God has created us to withstand a certain amount of pressure and tension. The problem comes when we push beyond our limitations and head toward doing permanent damage to ourselves.
Peace is meant to be the normal condition for every believer in Jesus Christ. He is the Prince of Peace, and in Jesus we find our own inheritance of peace. It is a gift from the Holy Spirit, which He gives as we live in obedience to His Word.
