Repair and restore

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post.

Just in case you may be wondering, Jesus can fix, heal, repair, restore, or reclaim anything that you are in need for Him to do. 

If He can do it for the blind beggar He passed by, He can surely do it for you and I. In Luke 18:41:43, Jesus asked the blind man what he wanted Jesus to do for him and the blind man said he wanted his sight recovered. And Jesus said to him, “recover your sight; your faith has made you well" and immediately he recovered his sight and the blind man followed Jesus. It was just that quick. The blind man didn't care who was around or what people were saying. He knew he needed Jesus of Nazareth. 

Now, what do you think it was that made the blind man call out to Jesus? Do you think it was simply because he was tired of being blind? Are you tired of anything? Do you think he wanted to be healed, so he figured, 'hey Jesus is passing by, this is my opportunity'? Have you seized on an opportunity lately? Do you think it had anything to do with his faith, in that he knew he had to take a chance and he took it? What would you have done?

Do you know our chances for anything we want fixed, healed, repaired, restored, or reclaimed, can in fact happen if our faith is big enough? Just like the blind man, we have to go for what's ours and we can't wait around for it to come to us. Whatever you want God to do, yes by all means keep praying and never stop, but also get up and call out to Him when He's passing through. He's always with us, yet He gives us opportunities to move, because He comes at opportune times and we know when He's speaking to us to move. He gave me some really great opportunities in the last couple of years and some I missed, because I didn't act fast enough or I didn't act at all. Some of those missed opportunities are still fresh in my mind, but I'm not bitter, I am better for it, because I learned the error of my ways. I don't want that to happen to me or anybody else again. I want us all to get what God has for us. I still need a few things in my life repaired and restored and I'm not missing another opportunity. I'm not letting another blessing fall by the wayside and don't you either.

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
