Peace with God Through Faith

Sometimes you have to fight for your peace.
Endurance, character, hope. 

Those are some of the things that warriors need in order to push through in life. Warriors are the ones who fight, but warriors fight smart. They fight with their faith. They fight with God flanked on all sides. They know they're covered even before they go out to battle.

The battle can be any struggle or obstacle. 

As long as God is for us, who can be against us?

That's the approach we take in order to have peace amidst a storm -- through our faith in God. You want to win? Winning doesn't just happen with a person. We all have to compete against the opponent(s). And we have to put in a more valiant effort than the enemy. That takes fortitude -- mental and emotional strength.

Fortitude is part of the equation of having peace with God through our faith. It's not always easy, but it gets easier with practice and it gets easier when we are assured of this:
"Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us." Romans 5:1-5
You need to know who you are and that you can get through anything with God standing with you. So don't quit, because you're not a quitter. Don't let your opponent win. Don't let the enemy win.

  1. Tell me how you talk so much about God and peace when your son has never once apologized to me or my children I let him go without a fight I didn't pursue suing you and your family because I am a Christian ... My children suffer everyday because your son shows no remorse for the death of my son is this Christian ? A simple sorry I made. Mistake ... Nothing just go on living . While my children use the example of this as people in the world because they never got a I'm sorry I know you needed your brother . You confuse me you write beautifully but how much is true when a mother does not steer her child right to as small as ask for forgiveness to the women you took her child's life . You can not be forgiven by God if you don't love the people of this world and are forgiven by those you have wronged. It's been a year and not one word from the boy who told the DA he was my friend .... Makes you think you should read my blog it's the raw pain that I love with everyday without my som

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…

The promise is still the promise

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. You know, sometimes in life just when it seems things are looking up, you turn around and boom, a step backwards. Just when you were starting to see a change, a shift, some forward motion, things slow down, almost to a standstill. Then you start to second guess yourself and question your moves to the point where it almost makes you want to just stop and not move at all. And you just about say, 'I'm done with all of this.' 
I know, because I've been there and sometimes I go there now. Yes, sometimes when I look at my progress, I say, 'dag Lord, why aren't I making more progress? Why does it seem I'm hardly making any headway?' And before I say another word, I think about Isaiah 40:29-31, which says: He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion. But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar hi…

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 …
