I Have Given You My Word To Influence And Guide Your Choices

It’s All About Jesus!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Sept. 3, 2010:

The battle of the ages is raging to transform you into the image of Christ while Satan also tries to make you into his image. I have given you free will, the ability to choose, says the Lord. The enemy has increased his pressure through your circumstances, difficulties, and persecutions to choose to respond to life with evil instead of good. But, I have given you My Word to influence and guide your choices. Be wise!

Revelation 22:12 “And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work.”

One may have awakened to the sound of the alarm.  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 Zephaniah 3.  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.

It Is Vital In This Season That You Draw Near To Me

It’s All About Jesus!

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

In these days your decisions will take on greater significance, and your choices will be as seeds sown that will produce a harvest of greater magnitude than you have previously ever experienced. It is, therefore, to your advantage to choose according to My wisdom. It is vital in this season that you draw near to Me, that you walk in truth and humility, and that you exercise the utmost integrity in all that you think, say, and do, says the Lord. Ask for wisdom, and be wise!

Proverbs 4:7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding.

One may have left one’s cell phone in the bathroom.  One thought to get the phone before dozing off.  One may have decided against it and thought that the alarm would be loud enough to wake one for one’s special time with Jesus.

One may have been awakened by the sound of the alarm going off.  One may have lain there for a while thinking that it was around 3:20 AM. One may have gotten up eventually.  One may have been late meaning one had not heard the initial alarm.

One quickly checked the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today and may have been encouraged.  It may have been 3:52 AM when one entered one’s prayer closet.

One may have begun with songs of praise to the Lord.  One may have confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed to the Lord for the passage of scripture for the day.

Today as one may be writing this blog a day late.  One could not remember the passage of scripture for yesterday.  One wondered if the Lord would answer one being that one did not get one’s blog posted on time.

One may have prayed to the Lord to help one remember the passage of scripture for yesterday and Jeremiah 18 came to one’s mind.  One wondered if it was one’s own imagination.  One may have gotten a quick flash of some of the contents of the chosen passage of scripture for the day and what it was about.  One thought, “Oh yeah!”  One may have been encouraged.  Then one may have wondered if the flashback could be from another passage of scripture one had read recently.

One checked one’s blogs to see if one had remembered the scripture from a recent post.  One may have opened one’s Bible to the chapter 18 in the Book of Jeremiah and began to read the scripture.  It may not have been familiar.  One may have known that this was not the passage of scripture the Lord had chosen.

One began to flip back chapter by chapter, reading the first verse only, in the Book of Jeremiah.  One may have known that these chapter were not the one.  One may have thought to stop flipping backwards and check chapter 19.  One may have turned to Jeremiah 19 and began to read it.  “That’s It!”  The Lord led one back to the passage of scripture He had chosen for the day.  Thank you Jesus!  Thank you for showing one mercy and grace.  One may predate this blog so that it will show up under Friday’s date.

At 4:52 AM yesterday morning one may have left one’s prayer closet.  One may have logged onto the site to pray for outstanding prayer requests.

Thank you Lord Jesus for answering each prayer request according to your perfect will.  Thank you Lord for your leading and loving kindness, in Jesus’ name, amen.
