Success against mountains

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post below.


What do you want God to give you success in? Are you up against anything that is much bigger than you? Do you need God's hand in a formidable obstacle that is standing in your way? 

Are you aware that God can do anything on your behalf? Oh yes, He will be there for those who diligently seek Him. And He may not be there will you want Him to be, but know this: He will be there right on time. Whatever you're doing to build His kingdom, keep doing it and stay focused on Him. Don't let up, continue no matter what it looks like. If things are a little challenging, stay with it anyway. Carrying on despite challenges are usually reserved for those who eventually win. 

"But you, be strong and do not let your hands be weak, for your work shall be rewarded!” That verse came from 2 Chronicles 15:7 when the Lord told King Asa, through a prophet, that when Asa had opposition, he would win. God didn't want Asa to give up. He wanted Asa to have strength in Him when Asa was going to war against armies. God knew what Asa was up against, and that gave him the courage to go against the mountains that were coming against him. As long as Asa was following God, he was successful against his enemies. 2 Chronicles 15:2 says, "the Lord is with you while you are with him. If you seek him, he will be found by you, but if you forsake him, he will forsake you." 

So, stay with God. Remain steadfast and strong in Him and don't give in to popular opinion or the latest and the greatest. Stay focused on what you're doing in the name of Jesus and no mountain or weapon formed against you shall ever come close to prospering. God has given you success. Continue to walk boldly in 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 …
