Belief and prayer equals power

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post.


Do you believe and pray for what God has for you? If so, there's power in that. In Mark 11:24 Jesus said, "therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours." Belief and prayer equals power.

Let's talk about power, which according to Google, means: "the ability to do something or act in a particular way, especially as a faculty or quality" and "the capacity or ability to direct or influence the behavior of others or the course of events." Now, when we put God in that, let me tell you, we are an absolute powerhouse, right? Because when God is in it, there's power in it. It doesn't matter what it is and people will see it all over us. Remember the story of the woman with the issue of blood? It was in Luke 8:43-48Jesus told her, her faith had made her well. Well, that's the deal with us too -- our faith has made us well -- whatever well means for you is for you, because it's all relative. Faith can make anyone well though. So we have to continue on with the power the Lord has given us and we can't let anyone or anything distract us from that power -- from the track we're on. We just can't, because if we do we will lose focus. And we have to maintain focus. We have to focus on what we're doing for the Lord and how we're encouraging others and God will ensure we have all the tools and resources we need to continue on.

Belief in Him, prayer to Him equals the power that He will give us through Him. You get it? So keep your power going and don't let anyone discourage you from continuing on, because you're going to help many people, so stay strong in the Lord.

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

God is Real

I've often had conversations about how we know God is real, about how we know His spirit lives, about how we know we are spiritual beings in human form (not the other way around). The answers lie in the beginning starting with the living  spirit of God and how the world began. God is Real. He's a living breathing spirit, an organism.  God is love . I often wonder how it is that some people think the opposite though. That the world began with a bang, a big bang, a black hole, whatever else they want to call it. The question I always raise to such a "theory" is, how was love created? How was flesh, blood, bones, or our souls created? What I mean by soul is that part of us that perceives "silently" what we do, think, believe, feel, and our mind, our will, our intellect, our emotions. Science or no bang or hole of any sort can explain that. If science can indeed come up with an explanation that does not include God, then let me know. In fact, let us all kno

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 th
