Go Get It

Years ago I was told to take off my running shoes and to stop running away from what God told me to do. A man of God stopped me in my tracks and told me to start doing what I was supposed to be doing and what the Lord was going to do as a result. I had gotten such confirmations several times before and after that, to which I am finally doing what I'm supposed to be doing -- blogging, publishing books (primarily ebooks), and I will start speaking more to people about the goodness of God; what He's done in my life; and what He will also do in your life. If you've been coming to my blog long enough, you are pretty familiar to my testimony and the goodness of Jesus. 

So, why did I title this blog post, "Go Get It"? Well, I think it's pretty clear, don't you? It's about taking off your running shoes if you must, and sitting still long enough to hear what God says about your next move. I can assure you He will confirm what is already in your heart to do and He will show you what to do next, then next, then next. No, He won't give you the complete road map, but He will get you started in the right direction and He will continue to direct you if you accept His lead. Remember what I often say, 'yes He's God, but He gives us free will, which is the choice to be chosen.' I hope your choice is to get whatever it is He has already stored up for you. Go get it, because that will be the only way you will really be able to help yourself and those who want what you have to give them. You will know that based on the Godly motives that live inside you and your past. 

Let God use you to be a blessing to others. He knows what He wants for you. "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future" (Jeremiah 29:11). Thus, His word to the people who were exiled to Babylon still hold true for us today. Again, what has He told you to do?

Go get it.

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 …
