God Looks after His Anointed

"So Pharaoh said to Joseph, “I hereby put you in charge of the whole land of Egypt” (Genesis 41:41).  

Wherever it is you want God to take you, He will. If it's a palace or your equivalent to it, then so be it. But let me tell you this: it won't come easy. Oh no. You're going to have to go through some things to get there. God doesn't just reward, going through the motions, or doing things here and there, or not proving perseverance, determination, stamina, and intense training with Him. If that were the case He would reward the ones who don't trust or believe in Him to fulfill His promises. Every Tom, Dick, and Harry would be getting blessed to big places for no reason and the first thing they would do is give themselves the glory. You think God works like that? Please.

Take Joseph for instance, left for dead by his jealous evil brothers. Yet God had something better for Joseph and Joseph proved himself worthy of getting it. He went through hell and he stayed with God during the entire process. He ended up, literally, in the Pharaoh's palace. The same man who did him dirty (Genesis 39) just as his brothers did. But look at this, in Genesis 50:20 he told his brothers, "You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives." After everything he went through, Joseph ended up being the second man in charge of the kingdom and was put in a position to help many others, including his brothers. Look at that.

Won't God do it? Don't think for one minute that He won't look after His anointed.

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
