You are in a time of recovering that which has been taken by the enemy. If you will be alert and be willing to follow My leading, I will restore all that is necessary for your spiritual well-being.

Come to Me in faith with your request, says the Lord, and I will open what no man can shut, and I will shut what no man can open.

Revelation 3:8 I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name.

Watch and be on the alert for people who will try to take advantage of you. They will be motivated by selfishness and a sense of desperation without regard for your rights, space or boundaries.

I have spoken to you about a time of war and entering a higher level of warfare. Did you think you would not be attacked? For, indeed, the devil is seeking to bring destruction where he can. You, My people, must be awake, alert and aware, and rise up in the authority I have given you to defeat the powers of darkness that have come out against you. When you take a stand and fight, you will find that the enemy who has come against you one way will flee seven ways. Do not fear.

Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — March 25, 2010:

Be alert and watch for distractions that will divert your focus from being led and moved by My Spirit to worldly concerns. This is always a tactic of the enemy to keep you from purity and power, but it is beginning to take on a dimension that creates fear through fascination as a seduction away from kingdom purpose. You can quite easily overcome this temptation by staying close to the truth of My Word, says the Lord.

Galatians 6:14 But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.
