Doing more for Jesus

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post.
"So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ" (Romans 10:17).

Today I'm wondering how much we're doing to tell others about Christ. Although I am doing much, I could be doing even more and I know it. I can open my mouth more. How about you? What are you doing to win souls for Jesus? Are you doing enough? Some of us can answer those questions with a definitive answer in the affirmative and some of us can't. Some of us can outline with clarity who, what, when, where, why, and how we're speaking or preaching to help others establish a relationship with the Lord. And some of us can't even begin to, because nothing is happening. Some of us are hot for Jesus and some of us are cold or even worse, lukewarm. Do you know there is much all of us can be doing for the kingdom of God? You may ask what? Well, for starters, we can get out of ourselves and out of our problems and start speaking into someone else's life. Then as we do that, God will start moving in our lives. How many times have we heard stories of people who started there? It's a start in the right direction, right? Because as Romans 10:17 says, "faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ." People need to hear the word of God and they need to hear it from us. Listen, we can all do more, right? All of us. 

So, let's allow God use our lives, our testimonies, to help others who need to hear about Him. We are valuable to God's kingdom and He wants us to open our mouths and tell others about Him in the way that works for us. In other words, whatever anointing you walk in, walk in it. God will help you every step of the way as He orders your steps.

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 …
