Watch your words

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post.
Do you know that what we say can and will be used for or against us? Yes, Proverbs 18:21 says, "the tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit." What are you speaking over your life? What are you speaking over the life of your children, your spouse, your career, finances, health, or anything else? Whatever words we are choosing, because as we know, what we say is a choice, those words dictate if we are speaking to the Lord and giving those words life or if we are speaking to the devil -- the enemy, to give those words death. What are you choosing? Are you speaking like a winner in Christ or not? Because let me tell you, Christ is full of love (1 John 4) and He is full of positivity and light. Yes. And when we speak good and positive things into the atmosphere we give them leverage in Jesus name, to be fruitful and multiply. We have a choice in how our life goes. Because Proverbs 23:7 says, we are what we think we are. As a man thinks that's who he is. 

So, the bottom line is, if we want to win in Christ, if we want to conquer the mountains, then no matter our circumstances, we have to speak life, victory, success, accomplishments, winning, and achievement over our lives. We have to believe what Proverbs 18:21 says, which again is, "the tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit." It's about yielding to the power of the Lord and watching our words. It's about yielding the power the Lord gives us, the choice He gives us, to watch our words and use them wisely. Then we can claim victory over our lives, in Jesus name.

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 …
