It Can Still Happen

Do you know miracles and extraordinary things happen?

That shouldn't surprise you though. It doesn't surprise me, because I know God is the God of the possible (Matthew 19:26). That means if we want something that has lived in our heart, it doesn't matter how long it's lived there, it can still happen for us. But only some people believe that. Part of the reason I think certain things don't happen for some people is because they give up on their dreams. For instance, if a person wants to get married and after some time it hasn't happened for he or she, they will start saying they don't want to get married anymore and that they're ok being single. They say those things, because they've lost their faith. They've grown weary of the wait and they've convinced themselves it won't happen for them. They had a timeline and because God didn't operate within their deadline, they gave up. What a pity. 

Don't let that happen with you. It doesn't matter how long you've been waiting for something, if it lives in your heart keep praying for it. We can't get everything we want when we want it. If we could what kind of faith would that be? It wouldn't be faith, it wouldn't be trust, and it wouldn't be belief in God that He would do it. Faith is waiting for something so big, so extraordinary, so abundant, or so miraculous, that only God could make it happen. "Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen" (Hebrews 11:1). That's faith and it's worth the wait. 

Don't give up on God. Wait on Him.

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 …
