Simply Be What I Have Created You To Be And Surrender Completely To My Purposes In And Through You

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

I speak to multitudes when I tell you that your quest for attention and recognition is simply selfish ambition as you seek to express yourself in unique ways. But, My purpose for you is that you become a vessel through whom the expression of My Spirit can flow, unhindered by your flesh. You do not have to clamor and strive for position or compare yourself with others. Simply be what I have created you to be and surrender completely to My purposes in and through you. Even if you happen to acquire the attention you think you need, it is still empty and vain. Establish yourself in secret communion with Me, says the Lord.

John 7:4a “For no one does anything in secret while he himself seeks to be known openly.”

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 the sick.

One may have prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have been led to Psalm 14 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. 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.

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

Be Moved By My Spirit, And Your Decisions Will Be Sound, Says The Lord

This is a time to re-evaluate. There are things that are best left behind and other things that should be restored. There are still other things that need more care and attention then you have previously given. Your circumstances will dictate what you need to take a look at and what requires your interest. This process might take some time, so don’t be hasty in your judgments or choices. Be moved by My Spirit, and your decisions will be sound, says the Lord.

Proverbs 21:5 The plans of the diligent lead surely to plenty, But those of everyone who is hasty, surely to poverty.

Seek To Glorify Me

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 1/20/11:

Hush. Be still and stop fretting. Worry will get you nowhere. If you will be quiet and rise up in the Spirit, I will give you peace and bring healing and restoration to your troubled soul. When you are in turmoil it is because you have lost focus, paying more attention to situations that concern you rather than trusting Me, says the Lord. For those who have asked to see My glory, you will not see My glory until you continually give Me honor in all things. My glory will be revealed to those who seek to glorify Me.

Psalms 131:2 Surely I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a weaned child with his mother; like a weaned child is my soul within me.

One may have awakened this morning.  The Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin may not have been in one’s e-mail inbox.  One may believe that the time that one may receive the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin may have changed.  One may have thought to change one’s prayer time.  One may have decided against it.

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 Isaiah 9.  Thank You Jesus!

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

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

Come To Me With Boldness, Faith And The Knowledge That I Am For You And Am With You

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — August 30, 2010:

I hear the Spirit of the Lord saying, take up the measuring rod.  Apply the plumb line and the standard of truth to your own lives.  Before you evaluate the things that are coming upon the earth apply My measuring rod to your own lives.  Surely I shall show you that which is out of order, that which is not plumb, that which needs to have correction brought to it, for you are living in these times when judgment must begin at the house of the Lord before it comes upon the whole of the earth.  So knowing that, the Lord says, rise and measure.  Measure your life, your thoughts, your motives.  Examine yourself to see that you are in faith and that you have established the Lord of Glory as your first priority.  Examine yourself to see if you are living the example of Christ in the earth.  Examine yourself today to see if you are believing Me with a whole heart and to see if your faith is little or big.  Do all of this examination with absolute confidence that I will bring you to the point of perfection, for I shall indeed finish the work I have begun in you.  Rise up and do not stay where you are, but come to Me with boldness, faith and the knowledge that I am for you and am with you, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — August 30, 2010:

Even in your times of busyness be assured that you can do all that requires your attention in a position of absolute trust and rest in Me, says the Lord. Refuse to allow the enemy to pressure you to the point of carelessness or of losing your peace.

Psalms 116:7 Return to your rest, O my soul, for the LORD has dealt bountifully with you.

One may have awakened around 1:00 AM this morning.  One may have worked on some things and may have lain back down for a quick snooze before one’s prayer time.

One may have logged onto one’s computer.  One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today and 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’s blog.  One may have been led to Jeremiah 40.  Thank You Jesus!

Count Your Blessings And Be Thankful

It’s All About Jesus!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — May 27, 2010:

The enemy has set out to tempt you to be distracted from My purposes and perspective. Distraction can easily become obsession by focusing on one aspect of your life. You have been called to be good stewards of what you’ve been given and what you’ve been given to do, and those areas of your life all need the attention they deserve. Refuse to allow obsession to overwhelm you and pervert your perspective. Remember to count your blessings and be thankful, says the Lord.

Philippians 4:6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.

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

Upon Entering one’s prayer closet, one may have praised the Lord, Confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture.  One may have been led to Isaiah 18.  Thank You Jesus.

What You Build On The Foundation Must Be Spirit

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — March 17, 2010:

Yield to the working of My Spirit as you deal with things that require your attention and action. Only then, can I lead you in righteousness. If you take matters into your own hands without My direction, you will not like the outcome. Remember that what you build on the foundation must be spirit and not flesh; otherwise it will not endure. Always build and establish the Kingdom in all that you are and all that you do, says the Lord.

1 Corinthians 3:11-13 For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is.

One may have awakened a little after midnight.  One may have fallen back asleep around 2:00 AM.  At 3:20 AM, the alarm may have sounded and one may have been so tired that one may have pushed the snooze option.  The alarm may have gone off again and one may have turned it off and headed for one’s PC.

One may have logged on and checked one’s e-mail for the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  One may have read the prophecy for today.  Again, one may have been blessed by the message.  Thank you Jesus!

One may have entered one’s prayer closet and began to praise the Lord at 3:30 AM.  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 Isaiah 14.  Thank you Jesus.

One may have prayed for the outstanding prayer requests.  Thank you Lord Jesus for hearing and answering each request according to your perfect will, amen.

One may have seen this prophecy in action today.  One may have thought to do something yesterday.  One may have had one’s reasons (mainly anger and selfishness) for trying a different avenue to a solution.  One may have found that the new avenue may not have been what the Lord had in store.  It may not have been the answer.  The answer may have been, “No!”

One may have had to resort back to the original plan.  One may have felt led through out the day.  One may have thought to do a particular thing today.  It may not have been required of one until tomorrow.  One may have discovered that tomorrow would have been too late due to a change in the normal flow of things.  Thank you Jesus for leading and guiding one.

Stay Close To Me And Do Nothing Apart From My Leading

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — March 10, 2010:

Beware of those who desire or require your attention. Exercise discernment to know whether or not I am sending them to you. If I’m not sending them, it will be a subtle distraction that will drain you to the dregs. Guard your parameters carefully, and let no one violate your spiritual boundaries. Stay close to Me and do nothing apart from My leading, says the Lord. Your spiritual vitality depends on your obedience.

Acts 17:26 And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, “For we are also His offspring.”

One may have awakened this morning.  One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  One may have been encouraged and glad for the help.  One may be on the lookout.  Thank you Jesus!

One may wonder about an event that may take place in the near future.  One may have hesitated before confirming.  One’s initial response was to decline.  Upon hearing the purpose, one may have changed one’s mind and confirmed one’s attendance.

Lord Jesus, please have your way at this event.  Please lead one in all things while there, in Jesus’ name, one may pray, amen.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet on time.  One may have confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord, prayed for the sick and prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have been led to Ezekiel 1.  Thank you Jesus!

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

Today may have been one’s last day at physical therapy.  One had not expected it to end today.  One may not have known how to feel concerning one’s therapy ending suddenly.  One’s ankle may be getting better but may not be 100 percent.  One may believe that this may be the Lord’s doing.  If not, Lord please have your way in this situation, in Jesus’ name one may pray, amen.
