Reliance on God

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post below
Who do you rely on to help guide your life, spiritually? If it's man, does he come through for you 24/7 or does he sometimes falter, because he's human? 

I had to learn the hard way that relying too much on people was a huge problem. After the school of hard knocks, I decided to turn things around by relying on God, more than anybody else. Yes, some people are extremely reliable, but I had to be careful that no man was perfect, because we're all human.

When it comes to relying on God, I realized He will always be there for us when we call out to Him. He will always be available to accept any of us the way we are, with no judgment. What man can say that 100% of the time? Only God can. His is a graceful God and reliance on Him is what He wants from us. He wants to be the first one we rely on, trust, and have complete confidence in. It's a choice we have to make though, because He gives us free will to decide. We have the choice to decide if we will take refuge in Him or not, which reminds me of Psalm 18:2. It says, "the Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold."  

My life has changed since I moved on from putting all my faith in people. Now I put all my faith in God and He tells me the people I need to trust. Thankfully, God has an open door for reliance on Him and to also commune with Him anytime we want. He never tires of that. And He has promised us that He would leave us or forsake us (Hebrews 13:5). He's there whenever we need Him and He wants to be involved in our lives. Total reliance.

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

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
