Your First Level Of Consciousness Will No Longer Be Body And Soul, But Will Be Spiritual Reality

It’s All About Jesus!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — May 3, 2010:

You have gone through an upheaval so that what you thought you could count on for stability was no longer stable. The challenges you have faced were for the purpose of bringing you to the place of finding your strength and endurance in Me, says the Lord.

I am opening your eyes to see more clearly the spiritual reality that exists in and around you. If you will yield to this work of My Spirit, there will be a decided shift in awareness so that your first level of consciousness will no longer be body and soul, but will be spiritual reality.

Be aware of opportunities to make changes in your environment that will make it more conducive to spiritual sensitivity. Your need to come away with Me, away from the distractions of practical and mundane existence, will become more pronounced and even become a priority in the days ahead.

Matthew 6:6 But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.

Matthew 14:23 And when He (Jesus) had sent the multitudes away, He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray. Now when evening came, He was alone there.

Even though many aspects of your life are transitory, there is an eternal thread that runs through your entire life. You can trust Me to station you where you can be the most effective in eternal purpose. I have opened doors that no man can shut and have shut doors that no man can open. Trust Me in this, and do not be afraid. I know the end from the beginning, and these things will work together for your ultimate good.

The enemy is doing his best to make you feel isolated, alone, and like the scum of the earth. But, he is a liar and the father of lies. Refuse to allow this condemnation to have any place in you. Know that you are precious in My sight and that I am for you. You are part of a company of people who live and walk in the Kingdom of God, who find their purpose and unity in the Spirit.

1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.

You have been thoroughly lashed by circumstances- darkness and trouble on every side, but you have survived some of the most difficult challenges of your life. Look! The things you have endured, though they seemed to weaken you at the time, have only made you stronger and more resolute. Rejoice in My grace, says the Lord.

You are being threshed to separate the wheat from the chaff, to make a distinction between soul and spirit; religious exercise and spiritual reality. That which survives the threshing will be pure, holy, and untouchable by the world, the flesh, or the devil. Pride will give way to unconscious humility as you yield to this process.

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

A time of restoration will follow a season of testing. The testing will prove your love and obedience. Then, I will watch over you to rebuild.

Jeremiah 31:2-4 Thus says the Lord: “The people who survived the sword found grace in the wilderness- Israel, when I went to give him rest.” The Lord has appeared of old to me saying: “Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you. Again I will build you, and you shall be rebuilt, O virgin of Israel! You shall again be adorned with your tambourines, and shall go forth in the dances of those who rejoice.”

One may have awakened this morning and read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  One may have been so encouraged.  Thank You Jesus!

One may have begun praising on time this morning although one had not physically entered one’s prayer closet.  One may have entered one’s prayer closet and continued praising.  One may have confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have been led to 1 Samuel 26.  Thank You Jesus!

One may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Lord Jesus, thank you for answering each prayer request according to your perfect will, amen.
