God has not rejected you

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post.


Isn't it easy to sometimes think that if things don't work out for us, that God has rejected us? Isn't easy to feel like if man has turned his back on us, God is ok with it? From time to time I'm sure many of us have thought that way, but guess what? The devil is a liar. God has not rejected you, so no matter what has stopped flowing, no matter who has closed the door, no matter where things didn't work out, and no matter the opportunities that were lost, the Lord has not rejected you. He loves you too much to cast you aside and He knows you still love Him. So continue living for Him and watch what He does to redeem those He loves and who still walk according to His purpose. He has not rejected you, He has accepted you. Yes, Psalm 94:14/15 says, "For the LORD will not forsake His people; He will never abandon His heritage, for justice will return to the righteous, and all the upright in heart will follow it"; and Romans 11:2 says, "God did not reject his people, whom he foreknew." And although that verse was meant for the Israelites, it is also meant for us today -- those who are called the children of God. If you are are child of the Most High, then that means you. He hasn't rejected you. Do you receive that? Receive it. 1 Corinthians 8:3 says, "But the one who loves God is known by God." God is going to honor those who love Him, so don't think He has left you. He has not. 

This message is for those who know deep down inside that they have been born for greater. If you are not aware of that yet, then I encourage you to seek the Lord in what He has for your life, because He has much. Matthew 6:33 tells us to seek Him and His righteous and He will add what He needs to add to our lives. Whether you know your mission on this earth or not, God will use those who want to be used. Know that and know that His glory is on those who know He loves all of us in spite of ourselves. God has not rejected you. Those missed opportunities will come back around and you will be victorious this time, because God is still for you. God sees you and He knows what He's going to do with your life. You just need to know it for yourself.

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
