Whirlwind

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 1/13/11:

I had a vision of a group of people with each one caught in a mini tornado or a whirlwind. Each whirlwind separated the people from one another, which created a sense of isolation and loneliness. Then, I was reminded of the scripture verse in Hosea 8:7 “They sow the wind, and reap the whirlwind.” And, I realized that sowing the wind relates to being troubled, bitter, agitated, angry, and impatient. When we see our trouble as greater than God’s ability or willingness to bring solutions, we lack faith and are not trusting Him. That wind will reap a whirlwind or bring a storm that we won’t enjoy.

Isaiah 54:17 No weapon formed against you shall prosper.

One may have awakened this morning and may have checked for the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin in one’s e-mail inbox.  It may not have been there.

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 Psalms 8.  Thank You Jesus!

One may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Thank You Lord for answering each prayer request according to Your perfect will, in Jesus’ name, Amen.

One may have checked for the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin later this morning.  One may have received it by e-mail.  One may have been encouraged by today’s message.  Thank You Jesus!

Refuse To Allow Frustration And Impatience To Rule

It’s All About Jesus!



SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 11/19/2010:

Refuse to allow frustration and impatience to rule, as there is no faith or trust in emotional reactions. Rise above the circumstances that have made you angry, and establish peace in your heart. Then, you can find wisdom and direction in solving your dilemma. I will pour out wisdom liberally, if you will set your heart and mind on trusting Me to show you the way, says the Lord.

Philippians 4:6-7 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

One may have awakened early.  One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have been encouraged.

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 Luke 1 and Luke 2.  Thank You Jesus!

One may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Thank You Lord for hearing and answering each prayer request according to Your perfect will, in Jesus’ name.  Amen.
