God is working for you

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post.
Would you agree that it's no surprise that people who exercise consistently are the ones who are in better shape than the ones who don't? And would you concur that it's also no surprise that we seldom see a sluggard person who stays with anything for any considerable amount of time? Why do you think that is? Does it remind you of a particular scripture perhaps? Namely, Proverbs 13:4, which says, "a sluggard’s appetite is never filled, but the desires of the diligent are fully satisfied." Clearly, one has a purpose and is willing to work at it and one doesn't, right?

I believe you're more like the diligent one -- the one on the road of purpose. Notice how you read and listen to devotionals. I would even bet that you do much more than that. You're the one who is going to become one of the fittest, because you stayed the course. You showed up. You are running your race. Yes, you're the one who God knows is working at it and you're doing your best. You're the one who believes Romans 8:28 -- that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." 

As long as you see yourself in great and magnificent places, then you will get there. You know the purpose God has for you. And as Romans 8:28 says, God is working on your behalf, because you love Him and that means something to Him. And He's going to ensure your purpose is manifested. So keep working, keep trying different things, keep talking to different people, and keep going to different places. Something is bound to happen for you. I'm telling you, because God works for the good of those who love Him. It's as simple as that.

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
