Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Sept. 17, 2009:

Refuse to allow the enemy to steal your hope by blanketing you with discouragement. Breakthrough is imminent, but you must take your stand on My promises and be unwavering in your faith. I am your very present help in times of trouble, and I am with you to lead, guide and direct your steps. Trust Me to move you in the flow of My Spirit, says the Lord. Do not be afraid.

Psalms 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

One’s alarm may have gone off; one may have dozed back off to sleep.  One may have awakened on one’s own shortly, thereafter.  The alarm may have gone off again, one turned it off and headed for the computer. One may have read the “Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin” for today and hurried to the bathroom, to clean and prepare it, for one’s time with the Lord.

It may have been 3:28 AM, when one checked the time again, with only the tub left to clean.  One may have decided to go for it.  When one finished cleaning the tub, it may have been 3:32 AM.  One may have been late for one’s praise and worship time with the Lord.

One began to praise the Lord with song.  One sang with all one’s heart.  One confessed one’s sins.  This may have taken up the majority of one’s prayer closet time.  One may have felt like singing again, so one started singing.  One may have spoke in tongues until the end of one’s session.

Things may have transpired throughout the previous day that should have stolen all one’s joy.  The three-bedroom apartment for one’s daughter, fell through.  She may have been told that the office may be working on another three-bedroom apartment, and it would go to her.  One may believe that God has something better in store.

When one heard the news about the apartment falling through, one may have thought, “Who sinned?”  One thought, “Well the person receiving the apartment may be receiving God’s blessings.”  The individual had not qualified previously due to an oversight that was rectified.  The enemy may have said to one, “Now you have to tell everyone on Twitter, Face Book and on your Blog, how you were wrong and God did not give your daughter the apartment.  Just think how you will look, to the others.”  One dismissed the accusations and thought, “No matter what, one has got to keep it real; Jesus is in control.“

More disappointment occurred last night.  It may have been a major set back for one’s son.  The enemy, again, had come near.  One’s son kept his cool and said that he is not angry and is trusting God.  He may have shared that something said to him, “To do nothing, it will work out.”

This morning, the enemy was planning and plotting against one’s son, even after the events of last night, and those, which had occurred, previously.  But God, in His infinite wisdom and favor that He has bestowed on one’s son, set it up that individuals, in the right place, at the right moments, were revealing the enemy’s plan.  Hallelujah!  Thank you Jesus!

Tomorrow, Lord willing, may deliver a severe blow to the enemy and his tactics and expose him for what he really is. Jesus, please be with us, let your perfect will be done in our lives, in Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.

Lord, thank you for encouraging one today.
