Just Picture It

So I'm driving by a new development and I see a building being erected somewhere at the halfway point.

It was really nice.

I thought, how amazing it was that the building looked as if it were there the entire time. I tried to picture what the space looked like before someone got a vision in their minds for a piece of sculpture to fit there. I wonder how long that person had the vision in their thoughts. Did he dream about it? Or how was the concept formed in her mind? How much did she think about it?

They pictured it long before it appeared.

The birth of an idea, a vision, a picture.

They're formed way before anyone sees the evidence. That's how great things are created.

It usually starts as a small thought that finishes in astonishment -- the human mind that could fathom such complex innovation. None of it comes from osmosis or appears out of thin air. I believe such intelligence comes from God. He equips us with everything we do. He's the one who gives us the brains to picture something that He then allows us to bring to fruition. His power never ceases to amaze me. I see the Lord in almost everything. That's why He's the only alpha and the omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end. He created us from His spirit and then the dust of the earth. Then He freed us up to recreate in many forms. 

Because of Him we can develop great things that were never here before. He gives us so much creativity that it'll never run out. I'm amazed every day by His magnificence and His majesty. Nothing is too small or too big for Him.

We just have to use what He gave us and picture it. Then it will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

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…

Jesus gives mercy

"Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus (which means “son of Timaeus”), was sitting by the roadside begging. When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.” So they called to the blind man, “Cheer up! On your feet! He’s calling you.” Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus. “What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him. The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.” “Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road."
Isn't that another great testimony about God's mercy? That story comes from Mark 10:46-52 and it's encouraging for a number of reasons. Namely, that Jesus had mercy on a …
