It Is My Desire That You Bless And Not Curse!

It’s All About Jesus!

Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Dec. 2, 2009:

I speak to you as a reminder that even though others curse you and bring all manner of evil against you, it should not be so with you, My people. It is My desire that you bless and not curse; that you pray for those who come against you with their hearts and mouths. It is a righteous thing to be persecuted when you are blameless. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, says the Lord.

Matthew 5:11-12 “Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”

One may have overslept this morning.  One never heard the alarm.  One may have awakened at 5:24 AM.

One may have rushed to read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  Again, one may have been very pleased with the message given.  One may believe that this very thing happened to one recently.  One may believe that the agenda was already set when one came on the scene.

One may have sung songs of praise, confessed one’s sins and prayed for the sick.

One may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests much later than usual.  Lord, thank you for answering one’s prayers and the prayer requests.

One may have been led to a website this morning.  An individual may have asked another individual, “Can’t you hear those who are praying for me?”  One may have been overjoyed and blessed to hear this.  One may pray for this individual as well.  The individual may have an awesome relationship with Jesus and many promises from the Lord.

One would have thoughts that made one wonder if one should continue to pray for the individual.  This may have been the enemy.  One just kept praying in spite of those thoughts.  Thank you Jesus!
