The Judges

Do you know the Judges? 

You may even be one yourself.

Yes? No? Ok, you be the judge. 

So, just who are these Judges anyway? They are the ones who have a double standard. They have one for themselves and one for everybody else. They are the people who can say things to others, but when those same things are said to them, they become emotional, judgmental and critical. They are the people who can do certain things, but when others do those same things, they become emotional, judgmental and critical. In their minds they are above everybody else. Such Judges may have a rude, selfish, holier than though demeanor. They don't take well to constructive feedback and reject the truth about themselves, especially if that feedback and honest commentary comes from someone who isn't as well versed in the scriptures as they think they are, or comes from a person of lower status, or a person without a high position, or doesn't have a fancy title, or is lacking an impressive education. The Judges equate all of those things to importance. And if you don't come with at least one of those in your "pedigree", then you might as well forget about being entertained for one second by them. Anybody else coming to them from such a prestigious bloodline will get a few minutes more...but they better come correct. For, the Judges don't take well to being set straight, because in their minds they're already straight. They're as close to perfection as anybody could possibly be. 

The Judges think they're above the "law."

The Judges can only rebuke (in their rude and condescending manner), but can never be rebuked. 

Yet, here's the truth of the matter: the Judges don't run it. They don't dictate the rules. They don't set the standard. They're no more important than anybody else. To God, we're all even. His love, kindness, and respect reaches beyond and across boundaries. He doesn't call "qualified Judges", He qualifies those He calls. And He's not concerned with how well we know the scriptures or our status or our position or our title or our education. He couldn't care less about any of those things -- He's not impressed.

God looks at our heart. That's important to Him.

God looks at where we want to go with Him. That's important to Him.

God looks at what we want to do through Him. That's important to Him.

If you're feeling judged, put down, or condemned by The Judges, know this: nobody is qualified to do such a thing. The Judges have no significance with their judgmental attitude. There's only one Judge and His name is Jesus Christ. In fact He's the only Judge and He's the jury too. Therefore, He's the one who will have order in the court. 

In God's eyes we are all the same.
He loves all His children.

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

Protecting My Peace - Day 98 - Momentum and Movement, That’s What's Up

Click to listen to current podcast episode. “Never Giving Up” are power-words — strong affirmations that give us momentum and movement. That’s what’s up. We can do so much more in our lives when we have momentum and movement. It’s about standing, literally and not sitting or laying around feeling sorry for ourselves. I used to do that once upon a time and that sorrowful thinking is for the birds. We don’t have to be down. We can get up and get going even if we start small. In fact, I love starting small, because it helps set a firm foundation of habits and routines. Momentum and movement will help us get and maintain a position of strength to do what God says we can do.

God blesses whomever he wants to bless, whenever he wants to bless them

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. When I was going through a dark time -- when I had nothing -- there was a certain person who helped me sometimes. She helped me whenever she basically felt like it, but she did help, and for that I'm appreciative. But, something interesting happened after I started growing out of my despair. Something interesting started happening when I no longer needed her for anything. And something interesting happened even though I remained kind and grateful towards. The interesting thing that happened was that she started hating on me. She started treating me differently. At first I was really bothered by it, because I thought she and her husband were nice people I wanted in my life. I liked that they had a sense of compassion and were interested in helping people who were down and low. That really appealed to me, because I was raised that way; my mother was raised that way; her mother was raised that way, and it goes back to as fa
