God is Here

Just as the air is flowing through the atmosphere, God is with you. He will never leave you or forsake you.

You may feel all alone, you may feel like nobody gets you, you may feel like God has forgotten about you, but know this: you're not alone, somebody else is feeling exactly the way you are. The "right" people understand you, because they have been where you are. And God is certainly thinking about you, oh yes, He has you on His mind. He knows the exact plans He has for you. He is keeping you safe and ensuring you're not put in any harm. He is putting things in place for your prosperity. And He is giving you a hope & a future. How do I know? Because Jeremiah 29:11 tells us so. Perhaps those words were written for you at this present moment in time. God's words have many purposes. Maybe just maybe He has you reading these very words at this very time for such a time as this in your life. Could it be that He knew what you wanted and needed to read right now? Maybe you needed a stirring of your faith, because today was particularly challenging for you.

God is here and He knows what you need.

Stand firm on His word, the bible, and never give up on it. Do you believe God's word? Because it never falls to the ground. It stands strong against anything, anyone, and any place. So I want to come to encourage you today to rise up and know that God is God. He still remains the Great I Am (Exodus 3:10). He still reigns from heaven above. And His power and presence are mighty everywhere.

Therefore, He's thinking about you right now. Yes you.

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 …
