It's Different in the Dark

Things look much different in the dark. 

It's true. 

Think about it. When we drive at night we can't see certain things, right? It's too dark to see them. It's also harder to find out where we are, or tell what direction we're going, or figure things out. Things just look a whole lot different at night. Yet when we drive in the light, isn't it amazing how much more we can see? Things we had a hard time noticing in the dark are now clearer, we can tell what direction we're going faster, we can make out landmarks with more ease, and reading the signs becomes effortless.
The light is always more powerful than the dark. Always.
Darkness is temporary, but the light is forever.

God divided the darkness from the light

Darkness and light are separate. Don't get it twisted. It's the way the Lord set things up -- it was no accident. Another thing about the darkness is that it doesn't last long, the light always follows, and the light stays with us. That's right, did you know that even in darkness there is light? Yep, there are just certain things we can't see even when they're there. Another way to put it is God is always here, there and everywhere. 

He's that magnificent and that powerful.

So there's no need to fear is or to get anxious about the darkness, because the Lord is with us no matter where we are. Although it's harder to navigate in the darkness, we get through it nevertheless. The Lord never leaves us or forsakes us. He helps us see in the dark -- the light helps us get through the darkness. We simply need the light. Why? Because we will for sure go through the darkness. It's inescapable. Then when we come out of that dark place we are made stronger, faster, and better because we simply got through it. Making it out of such a place gets us to a position of power and determination. No one can stop us.

We need the darkness to get to the light.

God sees us in the darkness and He's helping us.

Darkness is hard, painful, depressing, sad, scary, all of that. Without navigating the deep seas and the mountainous terrains, how would we ever get to the light? God is the light and with Him all things are possible for those who believe. So, no need to worry in the scary dark times, just continue to pray and seek His face, and He will ensure you get to the light. Then you will be able to see clearer and things will get easier. I'm a witness.

That's how it is with the light.

The light will lead you to great places.

God is the light

I feel free

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. How are you feeling today? What kind of head space have you been in lately? I ask, because I'm just wondering if anybody feels like me -- free like me. Free as an eagle. Free as can be. That's right, out with doing business the old stale way and in with a fresh new operation. It's a shifting happening in the atmosphere of Sharon's life and I'm moving on to the big and awesome things God has for me. What  do you say for yourself? What are you speaking over your life? What it is for you? 
For me, I am no longer afraid to go out in the deep end. I am no longer afraid to fly higher, I am no longer concerned about what I have or do not have, and I am no longer concerned about what anybody thinks or says. Who the heck cares anymore? I don't. Because God tells me he doesn't give me a spirit of fear or timidity (2 Timothy 1:7), but He gives me a spirit of love, confidence, power, self-control, and joy. And I…

Encourage yourself in God

Do you know that no matter what you may be going through, you can encourage yourself in the Lord? And the Lord will give you the strength and power you need in order to get through? Yes, He will do it. He did it for David when David probably found it difficult to understand how he would endure. But, guess what? God was with him and God blessed him too. There are so many things I love about David. One of those things is that he encouraged himself in the Lord beyond the challenging circumstances he found himself in (1 Samuel 30:6).
When it seemed all was lost, David didn't give up. When everyone turned their backs on him, he stayed with his vision. When his family and community were taken, he went forth with what God told him to do. David never left the Lord in spite of his circumstances. I love that he did the opposite of what some of us would do, he stayed with God, he didn't run away from God. And he didn't try to take matters into his own hands. He ran towards the order…

When you follow the light

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. "Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life” (John 8:12). 
I just want to encourage you to keep looking up, keep following the light, and to keep the plans God has for your life, front and centered. Continue to look up towards heaven no matter what you're going through. If you're not going through anything, then that's good, just continue to ensure your gaze is still on the Lord. No matter where we are in life we have to keep God as the center of our lives and not get too busy for the He, the Father. We must remember that what He did for us and the blood He shed for each one of us to be here today is something to be worthy, something to be praised, and something to appreciate and be grateful for.
Looking up ensures we are looking towards the light, because Jesus is the Light and He sits on high. That's a fact, so…
