Best-loved Bible Teacher, Joyce Meyer who is featured on GOD TV each weekday, has surprised viewers in a video on her Instagram account in which she says her views on prosperity and faith got out of balance.

In the video clip, she says that “I’m glad for what I learned about prosperity, but it got out of balance. I’m glad for what I learned about faith, but it got out of balance.”

Joyce shares an eye-opening lesson she’s learned in life.


“Every time somebody had a problem in their life,  [I thought] it was because they didn’t have enough faith. If you got sick, it was because you didn’t have enough faith. If your child died, it was because you didn’t have enough faith,” she said.

“However the Bible does not promise us that we won’t face any trouble. Jesus said, ‘In the world, there will be tribulation. Cheer up. I have overcome the world’,” she added.

The video has now been viewed more than 100,000 times and has received mass feedback from viewers. People are sharing their thoughts about Joyce’s comments, and one Instagram user, Mylestan positively commented that “God honors a repentant and humble heart who can admit they are wrong! This is awesome.”

Indeed, what Joyce did is a beautiful reminder that none of us is perfect. Even church and ministry leaders can make mistakes. The important thing to remember is that when we do, we can humbly admit our failures and move on. Being a child of God is not about perfection, it’s about love and acceptance.

Joyce continues to be an inspiration to viewers worldwide through her series, Enjoying Everyday Life which can be seen on GOD TV each weekday at 8.30pm EST 20:30 GMT as well as on Sundays

    None of us are perfect and we only see in part. Now if all leaders could humbly admit they dont have everythin all together. That is the whole picture. We are all on a journey of discovery. It would help others to be unpretentious.

    I LOVE MAMA JOYCE FOR THE COURAGE & STRENGTH THAT SHE HAS TO ADMIT ALL THAT HAS HAPPENED TO HER IN HER LIFE & INSTEAD OF GIVING UP MAKING EXCUSES SHE USES HER TESTIMONY TO HELP ALL THOSE AROUND HER. SHE HAS TOUCHED MY LIFE IN SUCH A WAY THAT I AM ETERNALLY GRATEFUL FOR. I HAVE ALOT OF WORK BUT I KNOW BECAUSE OF HER THAT NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH GOD. GOD BLESS US ALL ALWAYS…

    I appreciate her gift to share the word and be able to apply it to her own life situations. These situations correlate with mine. I have learned so much in her teachings and I love how honest she is about her own flaws. I have many struggles and her books, her knowledge, and her ability to teach is a blessing from God.

    My sister once told me that I did not need God out of bitter and anger that her and other siblings hold against me, accusing me of something that is untrue. Though I was close to God, I have been closer to my Father, thanks to Joyce, I have learned to forgive, live, move on, pray for peace and the peace for others. I have learned to love and follow God as I pray for myself for peace and guidance. So much to mention! Thank God for Joyce and thank you for for teaching me how to live day by day, Joyce. I’m trying, but it’s real with God.

    I don’t get it…is she saying it’s not ok to be prosperous? Or the two don’t mix?
    What is she apologizing for?

    She is my favorite preacher, and I don’t see the problem. 🐈🐾🐾

    This is great, but this isn’t really new news. If you’ve watched Joyce for the last several years and listened to her teaching… read her books… it’s been very clear this is how her thinking had moved. As well, she’s alluded to it throughout multiple messages. I would never have been listening to her otherwise. She is a tremendous blessing to me, and I know to many others. I greatly admire her firm biblical stance, balanced with the love of Christ and practicality.

    If your child died you didn’t have enough faith…in what?

    Everyone knows anyone can die at anytime. Faith comes in with how one processes the situation.

    Do you have faith that God will help you through it?

    I thank God for Joyce Meyer. She has taught me things I couldn’t learn on my own. The way God has used her in my life is amazing. For decades I suffered from depression and anxiety. At one point in life I was in so much bondage I would not get out of bed I would set up alarms to take only time I would get up was to the restroom when I could no longer hold it and I would set up alarms to take my girls to school and pick them up. I never got out of the house other than to take em to school. I would watch Joyce on tv and that is how I would receive God’s message. Til this day I enjoy hearing Gods word through her teachings. She make it easy to understand and learn. She’s awesome. Love you Joyce.

    Joyce Myers. I cannot say “enough great words about her”
    She is the Mother everyone needs. Straight shooter,humble with just the right dose of reality-check, for adults living on “the conveyer belt of life! Numb to civilization unless they run into a wall. Joyce is Loved by thousands and communicates the Bible in a very practical way. Keep up the AWSOME work Joyce😉
