The word susceptible has a negative connotation; even some of the definitions to that word back that up. So here’s a definition I would like to highlight, “likely to be effected by; vulnerable; especially sensitive.” So today I get to “FLIP THE SCRIPT” on this word…so here we go:
As I read Proverbs 8 this morning, I am thanking GOD for the fear the LORD, as that is the FOUNDATION of wisdom and the Knowledge of GOD, the Holy One results in good judgement, for it is a promise that wisdom causes us to be susceptible to our days being multiplied.
In that reminder this morning, I can’t help but thank GOD that we don’t have to bow down to the illusions of the demonic and the circumstances of this life. A reminder in not settling for what comes at us; instead remaining steadfast in HIM WHO IS STEADFAST AND IMMOVABLE, staying rooted in the LORD knowing that no matter the circumstances, we don’t have to settle by saying, “Well it is what it is”, instead with intentionality in knowing that GOD IS FAITHFUL, we can confidently say, “This says one thing, but what does My God say?”
What GOD says is what we get to hold fast to; we get to cling to HIM as HE causes us to be susceptible to HIS true PEACE as HE IS OUR ONLY TRUE HOPE. Everything else passes away; even the gifts as mentioned in I Corinthians 13. Now here is the kicker; the awakening: the greatest gifts are faith, hope and love and the greatest of those three is LOVE. It isn’t as much about the WHAT, but more so about the WHO AS GOD IS LOVE! The greatest gift is love; that is the GIFT we must and should focus on and hold fast to. For from that place of WHO HE IS AS HE IS LOVE is where all the other gifts flow from. Focusing on one particular gift without our gaze being on the ONE who is LOVE is truly a waste of time; to pick one gift and not focus on the ONE WHO IS LOVE is of our own efforts of what we are good at and there is no far reaching effect. Yet when we focus on HIM WHO IS PURE, UNTAINTED LOVE, watch what happens…Seriously, every gift needed flows out of a place of default! It flows from HIM and now we can’t help but be a CHAMPION, an OVERCOMER within the BODY OF CHRIST revealing the miraculous at every turn!
We are no longer saying, “Well, that’s not my gift”; instead we say, “That’ may not be an innate gift that I have, but it’s HIS and from the place of HIM WHO IS LOVE, we can do things that we could have never done on our own.” That is the beauty of HIS empowering grace. To see this happen collectively together as a Body of Christ, can you imagine?! WOW! Revealing the signs, wonders and miracles of GOD at every turn! Becoming susceptible to the miraculous as GOD’S WORD says that the signs, wonders and miracles are to follow those who believe.
Here’s the powerful reminder: we can’t help but flow in the gifts of GOD at every turn in whatever way HE wants to utilize us as HIS Word declares, we “are vessels of honor, set apart and useful for the MASTER PREPARED for EVERY GOOD WORK.” We may not be “ready”, but our willingness causes the readiness of GOD to see the great works of GOD manifest into the earth THROUGH the works of our hands. For everything we put your hand to, it is supposed to prosper!
I praise HIM today for HIS mercies are new every morning; and this morning may HIS mercies be seen yet again. Our awareness of HIS mercies be so sensitive now that everywhere we turn we can’t help but see the miracles. Whether it be a miracle of our hearts changing yet again to be more like Christ; yet again another miracle.
GOD is so faithful and may our lives be that sweet evidence. May all the days of our lives so that others may glorify our Father in heaven!
Praising GOD for HIS miraculous signs, wonders and miracles that we get to display in this life! Especially within the moments that we feel so uncomfortable, may HIS comfort overwhelm you in the middle of it so you can see HIS grace all over you accomplishing what you couldn’t do in your own strength.
Thank YOU LORD for every person reading this now to be susceptible to the miracles instead of sickness and disease; thank YOU LORD that the healing of YOU LORD is more contagious than sickness and they are continuously prone to miracles!
Opposition of the promise causes us to recognize when the miraculous is happening. When do we need miracles? When all hell seems to be breaking loose. If hell is breaking loose then be looking out for the miracles for that is when they’re seen most!
REVEALINGS OF THE WORD WITH HOLY SPIRIT:
Proverbs 8; Psalm 136; Hebrews 10:23; I Corinthians 1:9; I Corinthians 13; II Timothy 2:20-21; Mark 16:9-20
- I know my calling is to expose the great power of GOD no matter what the enemy is doing. What can you expose today about the greatness of GOD in the midst of the difficult?
- Some say, “Well Teresa you haven’t been through a lot of the hard…so it’s easy for you.” And one day I went to the LORD about that and HE showed me, because HE has been training me to stay fixed on HIM, I have been through the difficult but didn’t feel it or see it as that because HE has been training my gaze and fix. Perspective and mindset on Christ and what HE went through made everything else into nothing in comparison.
- How is GOD training you to where you can now see how can fall susceptible to the miraculous instead of the mayhem?
