Success with God

"And whatever he did, the Lord made it succeed" (Genesis 39:23). Such was the case with Joseph after his brothers left him in the pit of what probably seemed like hell to Joseph (Genesis 38). Such was the case when Joseph was taken out of a place he wasn't sure he'd ever get away from after his brothers sold him to some passersby. And such was the case when Potiphar's wife, the king who Joseph ended up working for, lied on Joseph and Joseph found himself thrown into prison. After all of that, the Lord was still with him, because the Lord had favor over his life. And whenever Joseph found himself down, he was never out. God made is so Joseph's brothers' hatred and jealousy for him didn't stop God's plan. Nothing can stop God's anointing and God's anointed. Thus, the Lord made it so Joseph would succeed every time someone wanted to ruin him. He had the Lord's success over his life and the Lord was with him wherever he went.

It's also true that the Lord has favor over your life, because like Joseph, the Lord knows how He will use you and no weapon formed against you shall prosper. God knows exactly what the plan is for every living soul and He will continuously direct our lives no matter what may come against us. Nobody can stop what God has for you and if He's for you, who can be against you?

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
