Peace is with You

"When the Lord takes pleasure in anyone’s ways, he causes their enemies to make peace with them" (Proverbs 16:7). 

Have you ever hear of that verse? Well, whether you have or haven't, we should get used to hearing it. That way, when God blesses us and our endeavors, even the people who mean us no good will find themselves helping us. It may surprise you and that person, but it is no surprise to God, because He set it up that way. 

In other words, there is no need to get distracted by the obstacles and roadblocks that may come your way. There is no need to be bothered by the people who hate on you even though you did nothing wrong. There is no need to pay any attention to the negativity that may try (operative word) to penetrate your progress. Don't let none of it rattle you, because those are enemy spirits that have come to steal, kill, and destroy your joy and happiness. Not so, says the Lord. Such a spirit will not take root or take hold. You have come too far and you will go much further. The enemy will have no choice but to make peace with you and your endeavors, because God is in charge of it all. 

You can rest easy in knowing that no weapon formed against you will ever win or prosper (Isaiah 54:17). It will never magnify. It will fall to the ground and wither like the little coward spirit from whence it came. 

Stay focused, because peace is with you wherever you go.

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…

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 …
