"A Key to Miracles"

"And when Jesus went out He saw a great multitude; and He was moved with compassion for them, and healed their sick" (Matthew 14:14 NKJV).

I truly believe now that one of the keys to miracles is compassion. I have had three incidences just recently where I can testify the power of compassion. 

Firstly it was my neighbors Tibetan Mastiff dog. I believe this is one of the largest dogs in the world. He's a puppy and because his bones were growing too fast, he was in extreme pain and was not able to walk. His owner was suffering with him. Me too when I heard the story. So I told the owner I was going to pray for the dog. Today I saw the dog walking around in perfect health. Hallelujah!

Secondly our Chihuahua doggie Davey was limping and could only walk on three legs. After going to the vet, they gave him inflammatory medication and the medical report was that his hip was constantly dislocating out of the socket. My thoughts were: no hope for this dog and why giving him medication after all? So I prayed for Davey for about 2 weeks until I saw him walking perfectly normally again! Hallelujah!

Thirdly I had blood in my urine one morning and felt I might have a urinary tract infection. I went to the doctor and they confirmed it and prescribed antibiotics. I prayed to God and felt I should not take the medication as He wanted to heal me. After a few days I got an unexpected phone call from the doctors office telling me that they had sent my urine in for further testing and it came back negative. I did not have a urinary tract infection. Hallelujah! I am so glad I listened to the Lord and did not take the antibiotics after all.


I believe when human reasoning, human ideas or even human power seizes and our only hope is in God, that's when faith is activated through compassion and the miracles from God begin to manifest.

Please be encouraged by these 3 testimonies knowing that our God is HUGE and He never fails us nor forsakes us. He still sits on the throne and wants to minister to a hurting and sick world through YOU.




Much love,
Suzanne

"Anointing"


Your anointing, your character and your very being depends on how much you are willing to humble yourself and accept and embrace difficulties as a way to abundant and glorious life.

"Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it" (Matthew 7:13 and 14 (NKJV):

"The Challenger"

Know this: The Devil can only challenge or criticize your humanity. He does not have the boldness to question Christ in you. Therefore, let Christ increase in you, but you must decrease.

"To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory" (Colossians 1:27 NKJV).

"He must increase, but I must decrease" (John 3:30 NKJV).

"True Maturity"

You know you have some sort of maturity in the Lord when you can earnestly thank Him for every adversity in your life. When you thank Him for your opponents and you have joy in the midst of your hardship. It is because in your trials you recognize that your faith is being perfected by Almighty God.

It is glorious when you can earnestly pray for your adversaries from a heart of compassion and concern. You know then that the Lord has dealt bountifully with you and has given you a new heart and you are becoming more and more like Jesus, the Christ.

"But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust". (Matthew 5:44-45 NKJV)

  "I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them." (Ezekiel 36:26 NKJV).

"You have not yet resisted to bloodshed, striving against sin. And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as to sons:
“My son, do not despise the chastening of the Lord,
Nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him;
For whom the Lord loves He chastens,
And scourges every son whom He receives.”
If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten? But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons. Furthermore, we have had human fathers who corrected us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much more readily be in subjection to the Father of spirits and live? For they indeed for a few days chastened us as seemed best to them, but He for our profit, that we may be partakers of His holiness. Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it. (Hebrews 12:4-11 NKJV).

"Silence"

The Lord is teaching me the benefits and the joy of being silent and waiting until the He tells me to speak:

As I listen more:

1) I become more observant of the Lord and of others
2) I hear more what the Lord is saying and I hear what others saying
3) and my silence and my peace send out a message as well

"Do not be rash with your mouth, and let not your heart utter anything hastily before God. For God is in heaven, and you on earth; Therefore let your words be few. For a dream comes through much activity, and a fool’s voice is known by his many words" (Ecclesiastes 5:2 & 3 NKJV).

"No Grounds for Accusations"

If people can't find any fault in you, they will try and find mistakes you have made and highlight them. If that happens, do not be too concerned but pursue to be pure, righteous and holy. Walk with God at all times and you will be known as a follower of Christ.

"So Pilate said to the chief priests and the crowd, “I find no fault in this Man.” (Luke 23:4 NKJV).

"Stand Firm"

Standing alone against all adversity shows much more strength and courage than falling for peer pressure.

"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go” (1 Joshua 1:9 NKJV).
