It is possible

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. 

Are you waiting on the Lord to do anything in your life? If you are, don't give up, because God is still working on your behalf. And if you believe great things can happen for you, then they can indeed. It's all about believe, remember? 

Whatever you want God to do in your life, you have to believe it can happen for you. In Matthew 19:26, "Jesus looked at them [the disciples] and said, “with man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” When we're willing to give God a chance, He will give us a chance -- many chances. He will give us abundant opportunities. He will open doors that no man can shut. He will place us before great kings. There will be nothing He wouldn't do for us. Unfortunately, many times we limit what He's willing and able to do for us by not having mustard seed faith. That's all it takes to put our trust in Him and to believe that what we desire will come to fruition. We have to believe it. 

Isn't it amazing the people who don't? Does it not leave you a bit perplexed when people truly do not think God will do what He said He would do? Listen, I get it. I used to be the faithless person too, but now I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that God "is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us" (Ephesians 3:20). Consequently, faith allows us to go forward with all that God told us to do. Faith allows us to take chances and risks in the name of Jesus and when we do that, God will have us covered on all sides. That's what faith is all about. We can't play it safe all the time. We have to take wise and Godly chancesbecause growth and progress lives in risks -- calculated -- thought-through -- wise risks. What did God tell you to do? Whatever it is, just know that it is possible.

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 …
