Meyer, who has delivered sermons around the world and written more than 100 books, said she once believed hardships were the result of someone lacking faith.
In a sermon video clip posted on Instagram, the 75-year-old said: “I’m glad for what I learned about prosperity, but it got out of balance. I’m glad for what I’ve learned about faith, but it got out of balance.
“Every time somebody had a problem in their life, [I believed] it was because they didn’t have enough faith.
“If you got sick you, didn’t have enough faith. If your child died, you didn’t have enough faith,”
“Well, that’s not right! There is nowhere in The Bible where we’re promised we will never have any trouble.
“I don’t care how much faith you have, you’re not going to avoid ever having trouble in your life.
“Jesus said, ‘in the world, you will have tribulation [but] cheer up, I have overcome the world.'”
A report published in 2003 by the St Louis-Post Dispatch that Meyer’s ministry owned a $10 million plane and $2 million home brought into question her personal views on the prosperity-gospel message and the organisation’s financial dealings.
Joyce Meyer Ministries was forced in 2007 to defend its “high standard of fiscal responsibility” when it became one of six Christian organisations whose finances were investigated by a Republican senator.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
