Won't God do it? Yes, He will.

Won't God do it? Won't God take His people from "nothing" to something, in an instant? He did it all throughout the bible. There are many stories about the nothing, low, underdogs who triumphed over undeniable feats (1 Corinthians 1:27-29). Don't you just love the the spirit of the underdog? I know I do. 

I love what God does with the person of little status in the world. I love it when the Lord shuts the mouths of lions (Daniel 6:21-22) like He did with Daniel when the king's men wanted to stop Daniel's anointing. I love it when the Lord protects us against the monsters and giants who try to come against us. I love it when the Lord sees to it that the underdog, the one who was looked at as the mistaken one, comes out unscathed. Yes I just love it when the Lord Jesus Christ reassures the saints that they will reach the mountain tops. God loves it when we walk the walk. God loves a great reveal. He loves to show people, through other people, who He is. Look at just a few people He used to do miraculous things to help others:

Moses (from nobody to one of the greatest leaders of all time)
Esther (from orphan to queen)
Samaritan Woman (from outcast to evangelist)

Don't you dare give up on what God has for your life. He is the reason for all seasons. He makes ways out of no ways. He is the one true God of yesterday, today, and tomorrow. The amazing Lord God. All the glory belongs to the Lord. You will make it with Him, no worries. He will lift you up and qualify you for anything He commissioned you to do. Trust Him.

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 …

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…
