Abundant food

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post.


“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us” (Ephesians 3:20). 

Do you know God has abundance for your life? Yes, He does, but there’s some work that comes with it though. It’s about doing more in order to get more. It’s about sowing and reaping. There is a simple rule of life. You want to know what it is? The people who do more, get more. Have you ever noticed that? Think about it. Usually when people do extra, the outcome for success increases dramatically, because sooner or later they're going to strike something -- they're going to hit something. For instance, the person who studies more, usually has better grades, right? And the person who eats  clean, is usually healthier, correct? And the person who is nicer and more respectful, usually gets more help from people, am I right about it?

Consequently, the person who practices their craft, is usually better positioned to seize opportunities. I can go on and on, but you get my point, right? It's just pretty conclusive that whomever does more, does extra, gets more. It's a direct correlation; cause and affect. And it's about getting abundant food. It's about getting what God has for us. That's right, because He has much. If we're willing to go for it, God says ok, I'll lay it out for you. We have to continue to walk in faith and get all He has for us, but it's not going to come to us if we do nothing, because nothing from nothing -- help me out somebody -- leads to nothing. Right? You heard the song, nothing from nothing leads to nothing, you gotta have something if you wanna be with me. Anyway, you get my point, right? Alright, so even if we don't hit the bullseye, we're going to get close enough to it, because we gave it all we had. Would you agree? Proverbs 12:11 says, "those who work their land will have abundant food, but those who chase fantasies have no sense." That verse is pretty cut and dry, right? If we want to get more, we have to do more, because it's about getting all God has for us and He has abundant food for us.

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
