God will restore your position, but this time it will be better.

Chapter 50.

Verse 20.

That powerful scripture is about redemption, restoration, payment, reclamation, atonement, restitution, retrieval. Yes, all of those words mean getting back what was taken, stolen, or deceived out of us. It's about payback. But not the revenge type of payback or at least not by us. God will determine the correct terminology and He can call it what He wants. 

All I know is what Genesis 50:20 says and that is "you intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives." That is what Joseph said to his brothers when they thought Joseph was going to get revenge on them for selling him into slavery. Joseph knew better than that. He knew he would have messed himself up even worse than slavery if he had taken matters into his own hands. Joseph was talking about the evil in his brothers that made them do such a thing. And we all know that evil comes from the devil or satan himself. It never comes from God.


What that scripture also conveys to me is that whatever we did or was done to us, God can and will give us double back. In other words, He will give us back a double portion of the peace, joy, and happiness we once felt. And if we never felt any of those things, then guess what? He can make them so in an instant. Then we will be able to help people with our story, our journey, and our testimony regarding the details of how God helped us through our pain and agony. And when we do that, there will many people who instead of being hurt, will now be saved, because of our story and our life.

Nothing is an accident when it comes to God. He will turn our pain into His gain for His glory and His honor. It was all a divine set-up, because nothing gets past God.

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

Protecting My Peace - Day 98 - Momentum and Movement, That’s What's Up

Click to listen to current podcast episode. “Never Giving Up” are power-words — strong affirmations that give us momentum and movement. That’s what’s up. We can do so much more in our lives when we have momentum and movement. It’s about standing, literally and not sitting or laying around feeling sorry for ourselves. I used to do that once upon a time and that sorrowful thinking is for the birds. We don’t have to be down. We can get up and get going even if we start small. In fact, I love starting small, because it helps set a firm foundation of habits and routines. Momentum and movement will help us get and maintain a position of strength to do what God says we can do.

God is Real

I've often had conversations about how we know God is real, about how we know His spirit lives, about how we know we are spiritual beings in human form (not the other way around). The answers lie in the beginning starting with the living  spirit of God and how the world began. God is Real. He's a living breathing spirit, an organism.  God is love . I often wonder how it is that some people think the opposite though. That the world began with a bang, a big bang, a black hole, whatever else they want to call it. The question I always raise to such a "theory" is, how was love created? How was flesh, blood, bones, or our souls created? What I mean by soul is that part of us that perceives "silently" what we do, think, believe, feel, and our mind, our will, our intellect, our emotions. Science or no bang or hole of any sort can explain that. If science can indeed come up with an explanation that does not include God, then let me know. In fact, let us all kno
