Never Thirsty

Some time ago I wrote a blog post about the living water Jesus gave to the Samaritan woman. The post was titled, Living Water and it was about the woman's encounter with Jesus. 

I want to remind you that Jesus will give you everything you need and some of what you want. He will see to it that you never have to become thirsty (or hungry for that matter) regarding anything you may need in your life. It's amazing to me how many people truly do not believe that. Throughout my conversations with people I'm surprised how many don't think Jesus will do what He said He would do. Jesus is a man of His word and if He said we would never thirst again, He means it.

The Samaritan woman is one instance of His power (John 4:1-45). The Samaritan woman is one instance of His love that gave her the confidence to know who she was in Christ. And guess what she did after her amazing encounter with Him? She opened her mouth and invited other Samaritans to encounter Him. That's what Christianity is all about. It's about doing all we can to ensure nobody else is thirsty like we once were. 

I have much respect for the Samaritan woman, because she wanted to help others. She didn't just take her knowledge and become mum about it. She used what the Lord blessed her with and she went forth with it. Who do you have around you who is thirsty? Feel free to tell them that there is eternal water that is available to them and their life will be changed forever, for the better, that they will never thirst again, because Jesus will be all they want and all they need. In John 4:13/14 Jesus said, whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.

That's what we can tell people who need an encounter with Jesus.

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

God is Real

I've often had conversations about how we know God is real, about how we know His spirit lives, about how we know we are spiritual beings in human form (not the other way around). The answers lie in the beginning starting with the living  spirit of God and how the world began. God is Real. He's a living breathing spirit, an organism.  God is love . I often wonder how it is that some people think the opposite though. That the world began with a bang, a big bang, a black hole, whatever else they want to call it. The question I always raise to such a "theory" is, how was love created? How was flesh, blood, bones, or our souls created? What I mean by soul is that part of us that perceives "silently" what we do, think, believe, feel, and our mind, our will, our intellect, our emotions. Science or no bang or hole of any sort can explain that. If science can indeed come up with an explanation that does not include God, then let me know. In fact, let us all kno

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 th
