God is with you

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post.


"Then Nebuchadnezzar said, “Praise be to the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, who has sent his angel and rescued his servants! They trusted in him and defied the king’s command and were willing to give up their lives rather than serve or worship any god except their own God.  Therefore I decree that the people of any nation or language who say anything against the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego..." [well, let's just say it wouldn't end very well for them]. Then the king promoted Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego in the province of Babylon" (Daniel 3:28-30).
Did you get the last verse though, verse 30? "Then the king promoted Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego..." Daniel 3 is about what happened with the 3 men who served God even though there were people who tried to stop them from serving Him. Because of jealousy and who they were, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego were lied about, hated, and thrown into a fiery furnace, because they wouldn't bow down to a god they didn't serve. They wouldn't bow down to an idol, because they served the Most High God, but guess what? God was with them when they were thrown into the fire. And when they came out unscathed and unsinged by the fire, guess what else happened? They were promoted. Yes, by King Nebuchadnezzar. Look at God. Won't He do it? Nobody can stop you, because God is with you.

What God has for you, is simply for you and you can't be stopped from doing what it is you were born to do. Is anybody trying to block you? Is anybody trying to steal your joy? Is anybody trying to take credit for something you did? If any of those answers is yes, then God sees what's happening and He's going to vindicate you. Yes, He's going to give you back everything that was stolen from you. It doesn't matter what it is, He's going to give you the victory. That's right, He's going to exonerate you and lift you up, because of everything that was done to you in darkness. He's going to defend you, because of everything that was done to you behind closed doors. And He's going to protect you, because of all the lies that were told against you. Do you hear what I'm saying today? God sees you. He sees the pain you have endured at the hands of those who don't love Him. He sees the injustices that were plotted against you in hidden places. And like Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, you will come out of the fire untouched and you will shine more brightly than you ever have before. Yesssss, God wants to prove something through your life and He wants to set a table before those who slandered your name. This message is for you today. Receive it and walk boldly in it. Lift your head higher than it's ever been, because like Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego who stayed true to God, God has promotion, elevation, advancement, breakthrough, upgrade, and honor for you. All of that for you. Yes you, because God is with you.

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

Click to listen to current podcast episode. “Never Giving Up” are power-words — strong affirmations that give us momentum and movement. That’s what’s up. We can do so much more in our lives when we have momentum and movement. It’s about standing, literally and not sitting or laying around feeling sorry for ourselves. I used to do that once upon a time and that sorrowful thinking is for the birds. We don’t have to be down. We can get up and get going even if we start small. In fact, I love starting small, because it helps set a firm foundation of habits and routines. Momentum and movement will help us get and maintain a position of strength to do what God says we can do.

God blesses whomever he wants to bless, whenever he wants to bless them

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. When I was going through a dark time -- when I had nothing -- there was a certain person who helped me sometimes. She helped me whenever she basically felt like it, but she did help, and for that I'm appreciative. But, something interesting happened after I started growing out of my despair. Something interesting started happening when I no longer needed her for anything. And something interesting happened even though I remained kind and grateful towards. The interesting thing that happened was that she started hating on me. She started treating me differently. At first I was really bothered by it, because I thought she and her husband were nice people I wanted in my life. I liked that they had a sense of compassion and were interested in helping people who were down and low. That really appealed to me, because I was raised that way; my mother was raised that way; her mother was raised that way, and it goes back to as fa
