Why Don't You Believe?

Are you one of the people who will take the leap for God? Some people will and some people won't.

The leap is one of just trusting God even when we don't know everything He's doing (Proverbs 3:5). The leap is giving Him a chance to see what He will do. The leap is going out on a limb if God told you to and trusting Him to catch you. The leap is learning to hear His voice and being in tune with His desires for your life. The leap is total commitment in believing in His promises.

Some people won't even try to accept any of that, because they want to understand everything and as long as that's the case God will seldom move in their lives. How can He when they don't believe He's the God of the possible and the impossible? They can't fathom that He can create many ways out of no ways. So they go through life getting the crumbs and living mediocre ho-hum lives. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that there's more to God than that. How can a God like His Holiness be anything less?

You have to imagine Him lifting you higher. You have to envision Him elevating you to astronomical levels. You have to know that bigger exists and miracles happen. It's nothing extraordinary for God to make such moves. It's simple for Him. Nothing is difficult for Him. Why some people can't embrace that, beats me.

All it takes is a small amount of faith as small as a mustard seed that will burst open as the Lord blesses. That's it -- nothing hard about that. Jesus operates by faith. He said, “because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you” (Matthew 17:20).

Let me say that again. With faith nothing will be impossible for you. Nothing.

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 …
