God will not forsake his saints

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post.
Psalm 37:5/6 says,"Commit your way to the Lord, trust in him, and he will act. He will bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your justice as the noonday." 

Don't give up when you're so close. We have to roll during the good and the challenging times -- the sweet and the bitter. That's life and only the fittest survive to the fullest. We have to want more than living a mediocre ho-hum life, right? We should desire a great optimal life, because God promises us the desires of our heart. Psalm 37:4 says that when we delight in Him, He will delight in us. So, it's up to us how we live and how much we are blessed with. When we aim high we will go high as long as we're willing to climb. It's a decision God has given us to make. He's directing our lives when we let Him (free-will). He will not forsake His saints. He knows what He's doing.

When we let Him orchestrate His wonderful and awesome plan over our lives then I believe greatness of some sort will come to us. We have to want it though, we have to expect it, work for it, then "wait" for it. The wait is the hardest part, but it will come if we will not give up and stop the process of getting what God has for us. We have to continue on. Habakkuk 2:3 says, "This vision is for a future time. It describes the end, and it will be fulfilled. If it seems slow in coming, wait patiently, for it will surely take place. It will not be delayed." God will not forsake His saints, because He remembers what He said.

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…

Jesus gives mercy

"Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus (which means “son of Timaeus”), was sitting by the roadside begging. When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.” So they called to the blind man, “Cheer up! On your feet! He’s calling you.” Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus. “What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him. The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.” “Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road."
Isn't that another great testimony about God's mercy? That story comes from Mark 10:46-52 and it's encouraging for a number of reasons. Namely, that Jesus had mercy on a …

The promise is still the promise

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. You know, sometimes in life just when it seems things are looking up, you turn around and boom, a step backwards. Just when you were starting to see a change, a shift, some forward motion, things slow down, almost to a standstill. Then you start to second guess yourself and question your moves to the point where it almost makes you want to just stop and not move at all. And you just about say, 'I'm done with all of this.' 
I know, because I've been there and sometimes I go there now. Yes, sometimes when I look at my progress, I say, 'dag Lord, why aren't I making more progress? Why does it seem I'm hardly making any headway?' And before I say another word, I think about Isaiah 40:29-31, which says: He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion. But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar hi…
