Stay with your vision

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post.



Where there is no prophetic vision or revelation, people perish; but blessed is the one who heeds wisdom’s instruction (Proverbs 29:18). 

Do you know what the difference is between successful people and unsuccessful people is? The difference is, successful or victorious people have some type of vision for themselves and unsuccessful people don't. That's it. Nothing deep. 

Just think about it. Let's take the successful victorious person ok, who takes on a challenging difficult endeavor and has less of an outcome than he expected. To some he may have actually lost or failed. But, not so. In his mind he is still a winner. Yes, what some think was a misstep, he sees as another opportunity to get things right. He sees it as experience. He knows eventually things will line up for Him. He still pictures his vision and he never takes his eyes off of it. What some may have called a failure, he knows will make him better equipped when he tries it yet again, which he will, because he never gives up. That's the person who stays with his vision and never expects anything less, because he knows what God told him.

Remember what God says about you, ok? Jeremiah 29:11 says, God knows the thoughts and plans He has towards you, which are thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. So, stay with your vision and keep picturing yourself where God sees you. Let nothing stop you and you will get there. Success and victory are imminent for you. It's just a matter of time.

  1. I like it when you say, "So, stay with your vision and keep picturing yourself where God sees you. God has shown me some beautiful visions for my like, and I am keeping myself in His vision meaning that I am seeing myself as Jesus sees me.

  2. Thank you, Ms. Terri. Yes we have to picture ourselves where the Lord sees us and do the work to get there. As I said, James 2:14.

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 joy. And I…

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 the order…

When you follow the light

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. "Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life” (John 8:12). 
I just want to encourage you to keep looking up, keep following the light, and to keep the plans God has for your life, front and centered. Continue to look up towards heaven no matter what you're going through. If you're not going through anything, then that's good, just continue to ensure your gaze is still on the Lord. No matter where we are in life we have to keep God as the center of our lives and not get too busy for the He, the Father. We must remember that what He did for us and the blood He shed for each one of us to be here today is something to be worthy, something to be praised, and something to appreciate and be grateful for.
Looking up ensures we are looking towards the light, because Jesus is the Light and He sits on high. That's a fact, so…
