A godly and biblically-based devotional to help people with their faith and confidence; to encourage, educate, and inform. Come everyday for inspiration. Almost everybody is going through something and you can get through it with Jesus. I am a witness to that fact. Never give up on the great blessings God already has lined up for you. Jeremiah 29:11 says, 'He knows the plans He has for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'

Are you waiting for something that hasn't happened yet?
That means you must continue doing the positive and worthwhile things you're doing. Waiting = Working. It doesn't matter what your current circumstances look like, refuse to give up. I know I know, things seem so dire and it seems there's no movement, right? Well, "seems" is the problem word. What things seem like are not real. It's all about our faith in a God who is the King of kings and the Lord of lords. Our faith in Him has to remain intact and solid as a rock, because He is the rock(May 26, 2016 blog post). He's the one who makes it all happen.
It's all about our faith in Him to work in His time. When we continue on we still have a chance and we have something the Lord can work with. If we stop, then game over. We just told God we didn't trust Him to work things out in our favor, so why should He? He has to be able to know that when it happens - when He does it - we will be grateful and thankful. For, man is hardly ever grateful or thankful for getting big things he didn't work for. You don't think God knows that?
In order for Him to continue working behind the scenes we have to confidently act as though it's already happening."Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance (evidence) about what we do not see (Hebrews 11:1).
Trust God, keep working and refuse to do anything less than that.

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…
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…

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…
