God is Real

Believe or not, some people don't think God is real. 

Some of them may say His name in a sentence every now or then, but they really have no real concept of Him. They just imagine Him as a far-off entity that has no real bearing on their lives and/or they just consider Him a "higher being" of some sort. Some of the people who have been blessed (by God) with monetary wealth are sometimes the most challenged when it comes to that mindset, as well as, some of the people who have had really negative and awful things that happened in their lives. The former thinks they've acquired their wealth all by themselves (self-made) and they think God (Jesus) had nothing whatsoever to do with it. They consider themselves "lucky." And the latter questions where God was to allow such bad things in their lives and thus, does not believe He really exists either. 

Let me say this, God is real. How are you breathing? How is your blood flowing? How was your brain made? Please don't say science, because if you do you're going to have to explain that and nobody can do that. Listen, God is real and He has a plan for all of our lives (Jeremiah 29:11) and guess what else? We can tap into the details of that plan at any time. That's right, God will share His plan with us, but only the part we can handle. He will tell people who are financially secure, who, what, when, where, why, and how they are to use their money to impact His kingdom. He will tell the people who had so much trauma and tragedy in their lives, who, what, when, where, why, and how they are to use their pain to impact His kingdom. And as He does all of that He will give peace, solace, comfort, calm, and tranquility like no one has ever known before. I'm not saying everything we be perfect, because it won't. I'm just saying that when we communicate with Him, many of the questions we have will be answered and our life will change so much so that we will see life though His wonderful and awesome spirit. Then we will know beyond a shadow of a doubt that He is real and His spirit still hovers over the earth.

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 …
