The struggle is not yours

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post below.

Do you know, that if you're struggling in any area of your life, I've come to tell you that the battle is not yours, it's the Lord's. Oh yes, He will fight your battles for you.

There are many examples in the bible when the Lord fought for His people and all they had to do was remain silent. That's another awesome thing about the Lord. He will tell us when we need to fight against the things coming against us and when He will take over. He did the latter in Exodus 14 when the Israelites were fleeing for their lives from the evil Pharaoh, who wanted to keep them enslaved. But the Lord said, not so. He sent Moses and Aaron into the king (Pharaoh) and told him he had to let God's people go. The king refused countless times and the Lord showed him who He was by sending 10 plagues of destruction against he and his kingdom. The king finally relented only to change his mind and chase the Iraelites towards the Rea Sea, which was a divine set up by the Lord. You see, when the Israelites got to the sea, God dried up the sea and they were able to walk safely to the other side. When Pharaoh's army chased after them, his army perished -- every last one of them -- when God released the waters over them. Now, I ask you this: Did God's people have to lift one finger in response to their enemies? I think you clearly know the answer to that. 

Be encouraged as you know that when the Lord is for you, who can be against you? No one, because the Lord has taken your struggle and he's got you covered from all directions.

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…

When you follow the light

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. "Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life” (John 8:12). 
I just want to encourage you to keep looking up, keep following the light, and to keep the plans God has for your life, front and centered. Continue to look up towards heaven no matter what you're going through. If you're not going through anything, then that's good, just continue to ensure your gaze is still on the Lord. No matter where we are in life we have to keep God as the center of our lives and not get too busy for the He, the Father. We must remember that what He did for us and the blood He shed for each one of us to be here today is something to be worthy, something to be praised, and something to appreciate and be grateful for.
Looking up ensures we are looking towards the light, because Jesus is the Light and He sits on high. That's a fact, so…
