SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Watch out for the temptation to take control where you have no responsibility or authority. Situations will arise that are startling and have the potential of throwing you into a tailspin, but you must not react with plans of your own to find solutions or to change things so that you will be more comfortable. You must settle in your heart the fact that things will happen that are beyond your ability to fix. That is when you can ask Me to give wisdom and direction beyond your finite understanding, says the Lord. Trust Me!

James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Beloved, the strength of your life and health is not only found in joy but in dealing with things as they come.  Diligence is the operative word here.  Quiet and steady perseverance will benefit you greatly and keep you moving forward.  This is no time to get stuck in circumstances that seem to be overwhelming.  When something seems to be beyond your ability to deal with, trust Me for the help that you need, says the Lord.  I will give you direction, wisdom and strength in all things. 

Psalm 120:1-2  I will lift up my eyes to the hills-From whence comes my help? My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth.

Don’t Forget That You Reap What You Sow; It Is An Immutable Spiritual Law

It’s All About Jesus!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 8/16/11:

It is of utmost importance that you understand that your authority in any given situation is the direct result of carrying out your responsibilities. If you are reluctant to take responsibility for your motives, actions and attitudes, your ability to progress will be greatly inhibited. Don’t forget that you reap what you sow; it is an immutable spiritual law. Now is the time to make adjustments where necessary so that you will reap a good harvest, says the Lord.

Galatians 6:7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet 3:47 AM.  Please forgive one Jesus for entering one’s prayer closet late.  One may have praised the Lord with song, confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today.  One may have been led to Luke 12 Jesus Warns about hypocrisy.  Thank You Jesus!

Patience Is A Virtue And Is The Ability To Endure And Not Quit

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin  

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 6/17/11:

As you have heard, patience is a virtue and is the ability to endure and not quit. But you, beloved, have thought of impatience as being antsy and impetuous when it really is the offspring of a spirit of divination, which tries to control. If you can see impatience as being beyond your sphere of responsibility and outside of your boundaries, you will be able to overcome it easily. Then, it is simply a matter of staying in the flow of the things you have legitimate authority over and minding your own business. And, I am with you to help you in this process, says the Lord.

2 Timothy 4:2 Preach the word! Be instant in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.

Believe My Word, Exercise Your Faith, And Receive

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 4/1/11:

Do you hear My call for you to come up to a place of greater faith? Listen and hear the cry of My Spirit, says the Lord. You live in perilous times and you are bombarded by negative reports and statements of unbelief that have the ability to undermine your faith. But, I tell you the truth that all things are possible with Me if you will only ask in prayer and believe. This is not a time to base your faith on human wisdom and carnal understanding. Believe My Word, exercise your faith, and receive.

James 1:6-8 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 3:30 AM.  One may have praised the Lord with song, confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may not remember the passage of scripture for today. Holy Spirit, please help one to remember, in Jesus’ name, one may pray, Amen.

The Holy Spirit may have brought this passage of scripture for this day back to one’s remembrance this morning, Esther 7 – Esther identifies Haman as her enemy.  One may have thought that one may have forgotten to post this blog on Friday.  One may have been glad to see that one may have.  One may have forgotten to post this blog to one’s Facebook page.  Oops!  Please forgive one Jesus. : -)

Be Still, Watch and Discern

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 3/15/11:

Be still, watch, and discern. If you will quiet your thoughts and silence your feelings, you will have the ability to recognize and identify your spiritual atmosphere apart from your soul and be able to move through difficulties with ease. When you allow fear and anxiety to rule, the outcome is always chaos. But, when you put your trust in Me, peace is established, says the Lord.

Isaiah 26:3 You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 3:30 AM.  One may have praised the Lord with song, confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have been led to Deuteronomy 15 – Instructions for Lending Money. Thank You Jesus!
