As You Know, Double-Mindedness Gets You Nothing

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin  

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 8/3/11:

You will have opportunities in the days ahead to solve both short-term and long-standing problems. If you will set your heart to know the solution, I will give you the wisdom necessary for breakthrough. But, you must seek Me and believe that I will help you. As you know, double-mindedness gets you nothing. Your singleness of mind and faith will give you the answers you need, the progress you desire and the breakthrough you’ve longed for, says the Lord.

James 1:5-8 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. 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.  One may have been led to Isaiah 53 – The Messiah’s death predicted.  Thank You Jesus!

One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have been encouraged.  Thank You Jesus!

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

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Oct. 22, 2010:

I speak to those who are the point of desperation, and I tell you truly that when you think you are out of options and all is lost I am still with you. Even when you have suffered loss and can see no way out, I am the light in your darkness, and I will show you the way. Rise up and shake off the cloak of heaviness and despair. Look to Me for answers and direction, for I will certainly guide your steps. Set your faith and trust firmly in Me, says the Lord, and you will not be disappointed.

Psalms 42:11 Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God; for I shall yet praise Him, the help of my countenance and my God.

One may have awakened early this morning. One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have been encouraged.  Thank You Jesus!

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.  One may have been led to 2 Chronicles 26.  Thank You Jesus!

I Move On Those Who Are Moving

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — March 22, 2010:

Many of My people find themselves in a present quandary, not knowing what to do; seeking Me for answers. Because the lies have come there is a quandary, and you do not understand and do not know what I will do. So, I say, rise up and give legs to your faith. Is it not spoken in My word that I will give you wisdom? And, if you will believe for that wisdom will you not receive it? What are you waiting for? Get up and go! Get up and move! Many of you, My people, are waiting for Me to move while all the time I am waiting for you to move. I am waiting for you to exercise your faith to believe and to receive. Be done with the quandary and allow the confusion to go and allow the questioning of My word and questioning of My desires to be dismissed from you. Remove the lies of the enemy so that you can get up and go. I move on those who are moving. Stop waiting for Me to move, says the Lord, and begin to move by faith; move by truth. As you begin to move you will find those things which you desire; the wisdom that is necessary; the open doors that I have set before you. Walk through them. You must be walking and moving by your faith. So, one more time I say, give legs to faith and allow that which I am doing to come to pass in this time and season, says the Lord Most Holy.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — March 22, 2010:

In a vision I saw a brier patch, then a tangle of twigs, and then a snare or a trap. I believe these all mean the same thing. A brier patch is a mass of woody, thorny, prickly-stemmed plants. A tangle is a twisted mass. A snare is something by which one is entangled. Then, I heard the Lord say that He will give us discernment of thoughts or situations that have the potential of entangling us by bringing us into confusion. Then, as we yield to His power of extrication, He will set us free and bring absolute clarity of spirit and soul.

Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.

One may have awakened this morning and read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  One may have looked up the word “quandary”.

  • quandary – predicament, plight, difficult situation, awkward situation, trouble, meddle, mess, confusion, difficulty, dilemma, mare’s nest; informal sticky situation, pickle, hole, stew, fix, bind, jam.

One may have continue to read the message very slowly and thoroughly.  One may not have wanted to miss anything.  As one may have read, one may have thought what the title might be for today’s message.  One may want something that may draw the reader.

Truly, one may believe that each person is drawn to read these messages by the Lord and that it is His doing.  So one’s title may be secondary if anything at all.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet late, after 3:30 AM.  One may have spent too much time reading the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  Also, one may have looked for an item that one may have been unable to find.

One may have started one’s praise to the Lord with song while looking for the object and doing other things while outside of one’s prayer closet.  One may have felt led to look into a certain room for the object.  One may have said to the Lord that one would look there.  One may have been looking everywhere else and chose to look in this place last, thinking that it may not be there.

One may have entered the room and may not have seen anything.  One may have looked elsewhere and all around only to find oneself back in the room.

One may have turned on the light and really looked.  The object may have been there on the floor.  Thank you Lord for leading one to this particular room.

One may have finished praising in one’s prayer closet.  One may have confessed one’s sins and thanked the Lord.  One may have prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have been led to Job 34.  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.

Freedom Awaits!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — February 5, 2010:

Watch as I bring answers to long-awaited questions and conclusions to unresolved problems. I am offering opportunities to put things right so that you can move forward unhindered. You cannot receive the fullness of My blessings and provision without resolution of old issues, says the Lord. And, I have opened the door and made a way for you to deal with those things that have hampered your progress and kept you bound. Freedom awaits!

Matthew 18:15-17 “Moreover if your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone. If he hears you, you have gained your brother. But if he will not hear, take with you one or two more, that _by the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established. And if he refuses to hear them, tell it to the church. But if he refuses even to hear the church, let him be to you like a heathen and a tax collector.”

One may have got up after the second alarm.  It may have been around 3:25 AM.  One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have asked the Lord to reveal to one any issues one may have that need to be resolved.  One may not have been able to think of any.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet.  One may have praised the Lord with song, confessed one’s sins and thanked the Lord.  One may have prayed for a passage of scripture.  One may have been led to Psalms 19.  Thank you Jesus.

At 4:30 AM, one may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Thank you Lord Jesus for answering each prayer request according to your perfect will, in Jesus’ name, amen.

Issues may have come up today and one may have thought, “Why?”  One may have remembered that one asked the Lord to reveal where one may have issues that need to be resolved.  Thank you Jesus!

One may have gone to the eye doctor today.  One may have had a strong desire to get one’s eyes checked.  One may have asked one’s sister for their assistance in order to keep one’s appointment.  One may have shared with one’s sister that one had to go and could not reschedule.

Years ago one may have had one’s eyes checked and may have been told by the optician to have one’s eye’s checked at least every two years.  The individual may have said that one may be a candidate for glaucoma.  They may have given one the details on what they may have seen and the reason for concern.

The individual at the doctor’s office may have used an instrument to check one’s eyes for glaucoma.  Upon checking one’s right eye, the individual may have said, “Wait a minute, that can’t be right.”  They may have checked the other eye and said, “What’s wrong with this thing?”  They may have shared the results after several attempts to get accurate readings.  One’s levels may have been well above the normal range, indicating glaucoma.  One may have shared that a relative may have glaucoma.

The doctor came in and said that they would do more tests with a different instrument.  One may have shared that one may know of only one relative that may have glaucoma.  The doctor may have said, ”It has to start somewhere.”  One could not help but think of generational curses.  One may have prayed to the Lord silently, one may have asked Him to please heal one right now in Jesus’ name, amen.

The doctor may have conducted all of the necessary tests.  The doctor may have told one that one’s test results were normal.  They may have said that something was a little large but they were not concerned about it.  The doctor may have scheduled one for a visit in three months to do a routine follow up and to rule out glaucoma.

Thank you Jesus!  One may believe You answered that prayer right then and there and healed one with your healing power.  Lord you are so awesome!  One may be truly grateful.  Thank you Jesus!
