Moving full stream ahead

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post.
Are we moving with the flow of God? I looked up the word stream, and a stream is a continuous flow of motion. It moves right along with the flow.

Are we going in the direction God would have for us to go? Are we moving along in His stream? Did you know God makes the crooked places straight? Yes, it's true. In Isaiah 45:2, God said "I will go before you and will level the mountains; I will break down gates of bronze and cut through bars of iron." How amazing is that? That God would do that for His people? So there is not need about busting through any doors, God will open those for you (Isaiah 45:1b) and you don't have to concern yourself with deviating from the plan He has given you. Why would we do that anyway? There is no need to, because God said He would go before us and level the places out, did He not? That means when we get where we're going, everything will be nicely laid out for us as though it were waiting for us the entire time, which indeed it really was. Sometimes we think we need to overwork ourselves into oblivion to achieve all that God has for us. When all we need to do is remain focused on what He told us to do and do those things. That's it. No big deal. 

Where is it you want Him to take you? What mountain do you want Him to level for you? Wherever and whatever they are, you will get there and you will get what you're going after when you follow the moving stream of God, because it's never stops flowing.

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

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

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 mer
