You Are a Spirit
“Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Thessalonians 5:23
My hope is that as you take in the truth in this lesson that you will realize even more who you are and the “class” of creation that you have. Yes, we make a choice about whether we will walk according to the flesh or according to the Spirit. We also must realize that God has already chosen to whom He will reveal Himself and to whom He will communicate. This lesson can be a life-changer for you.
Your Journey in Faith is specially designed to help you develop your faith as you experience your sacred time of extended prayer and fasting. Take this opportunity to learn more about yourself and the changes you can make in your life of faith.

Susan, thank you for reminding me of Proverbs 3:5-7. I am facing a major decision, and instead of relying on sense knowledge, I will lean on revelation knowledge as God leads me in the right direction.
I thank God for this opportunity to participate in the Daniel Fast this year. Each day as I read God’s word and I am reminder of who I am – heir in God’s kingdom, spirit, I want to do all in my power to walk in the path of God. I need to keep my purpose before me always so that I wont be distracted. Your message here has truly opened my eyes to the challenges that I must face to reach my destination but I pray that with God’s Holy Spirit working in me, I can submit to His will. Lord help me to be faithful to this journey and bless Susan for her guidance and faithfulness to your call.
I am being blessed each day; focusing on God’s Word; just believing and making the decision to become an active participant in this newly living heavenly kingdom. I am free, light, I am life indeed! Thanks for your dedication, wisdom and planning in the making of this Daniel Fast. Spending time with God is oh so revealing awesome. I am being blessed and I can only bless others with what I am receiving.
I am really looking forward for the word of God daily. It’s becoming like food to my soul and I feel so uncomfortable when I don’t get to read it. Thanks again for allowing the Lord to use you to enrich the lives of his people. Have a blessed day.
As soon as i listened to Day 13. I stood outside the front porch of my house and I looked up to the sky and the clouds. It is almost evening here in Cyprus, and I saw the most beautiful graphics in the clouds with a light red colour in the shape of a veil. I stood in awe and I prayed and communcated with God Almighty. I said Lord, I see your beauty in the clouds. Who can say that there is no God when seeing such an awesome sight. Who can comprehend Your greatness Lord? I stand in awe and in reverence to your Holy Name. I stood on my front porch and sang the song, O Lord, You’re beautiful, Your face is all i see, and when Your eyes are on this child, Your grace abounds to me.
Thank you Susan for your patient encouragement to us. Often times there is so much “sense” knowledge I had been filled with which has hindered me as I have tried to please those who have given me “sense” knowledge. I can tell the difference and have for a couple of years but didn’t know how until now with your encouragement that we should live in revelation faith.
The past couple of years our Lord has been challenging me in ways that…well may not make “sense.”
I truly believe that what the scriptures refer to as the new man to be Christ himself. The gospel message has not changed from the virgin birth, but rather it now exemplified in every willing believer. The message of Emmanuel, God with us, is a daily reality for the born again babe is Jesus himself in the Spirit, born in us. Of course our spirit would come to life when Life Himself has entered our barren and dead spirit. The thought humbles me every time I think of it, how condescending our God is.
Now I get what my mentor, Francis Martin, was trying to explain to me years ago when she said, “When Mary had Jesus in her womb, how did she behave?” then Mrs. Martin went on to say, “And don’t you have the Holy Spirit? What Mary experienced for nine months you can experience every day of your Christian life.”
That is one revelation among others God has shown me to walk in faith in. The deep rooted desire and tremendous pleasure our God has in us becoming one with Him is amazing. This reality has strengthened my own marriage for it is my God that my husband I testify of as married couple. Making us living examples of God’s desire to be completely reunited with His bride.
And oh the beauty of knowing, through Christ, I am not a child of the King! My Lord Jesus is my brother whose riches are shared with me.
Now what I am about to say will not make “sense” but to those who know God intimately it will. Only our God can be our Father, Brother and Husband. All for His glory.
I will admit it is kind of strange to share all this because I know I could be misunderstood but, Susan, you have encouraged me so much to live in revelation faith and it is in that faith I desire to declare that my life, “It is HIM it is ALL about HIM.” I want others to know the true love I have come to know that they too can live in as children of the Most High God.
Thank you for your faithfulness to encourage us in our journey of faith. God’s blessing be yours for your tremendous love, Susan.
To GOD be ALL the GLORY
Thank you for sharing your message and insights, Ann Marie.
Moving deeply with God doesn’t make “sense.” I hope the very best for you as you continue to grow in the love and knowledge of Jesus Christ, the Author and Finisher of our faith.
Amen to that prayer, Ann Marie and thanks for sharing.
Dear Anna Marie
Thank you for your comments, you have truly blessed me as i fight with sense knowledge. I am so pleased my spiritual eyes are opened to know the difference between sense knowledge and revelation knowledge/faith, as this has frustrated me plenty a time. May God’s blessings continue to be with you always. God bless you abundantly.
the Lord is good all the time. i always seek directions from the Lord and i never believe in myself. I lean not on my own understanding. the Lord in whom i trust is powerful. i am spirit and he is spirit. we connect easily. i really loved the video and i pictured the spirit as Suzan was teaching.
this is powerful and it will help most of us to learn to trust in the Lord at all times.
I am really blessed with this teaching. I have some knowledge on this, but not so clear after this video. It is more than clear in my mind. I know that without the peace inside of our self the spirit of the Lord can not take permanent refuge and lead us. Now I have to fight for that inside peace.
Thanks you so much and God bless you.
I thank God everyday for His blessings. Since I started this fast I have been praying for my son and his wife, today I heard from my son and he tells me that his relationship with his wife is getting a lot better it has been all week! She’s really turnin around, my son wrote. Glory to God!
Praise God. I am so happy for you, your son, and his wife.
Blessed be our Lord!
