Refuse To Be A “Jack In The Box” Confined By Old Mindsets

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 1/03/2010:

I see in a vision the engine of an automobile that needs to be adjusted and tuned up so that it can run better. Expect to make some adjustments as you are being fine tuned to fulfill your purpose in the overall scheme of things. Things that once sparked your interest will be replaced by that which better suits your level of spiritual maturity.

As you continue to draw close to Me, you will see My creation from a new perspective. The sky will seem bluer and the grass greener, yet worldly interests and the satisfying of your flesh will become a secondary pursuit at best. And, your knowledge of the written Word will combine with your experiences to produce fresh, life-producing revelation.

Just when you think you’ve lost your edge, spiritual clarity will come forth like a picture coming into focus. You will be able to see and discern with greater depth and lucidity than ever. Expect to be more decisive with issues and concerns where you have been duplicitous. Instead you will be focused and more efficient.

I kept hearing in my spirit the term “quantum leap”. You will broaden your spectral lines. This means that you will move beyond your normal limitations into a new realm of understanding and activity. You will no longer allow circumstances or people to hold you back or keep you from achieving your spiritual and natural potential.

I have torn, but I will heal. What has seemed like destruction has only been a good house cleaning to remove from your life the things that were no longer relevant. You have been released from the things that have held you back or created spiritual stagnation, and you can now move forward with a greater sense of freedom.

Do not concern yourself with thoughts of what you cannot do. Refuse to be a “Jack in the box” confined by old mindsets. Instead of focusing on your inabilities, let Me reveal your possibilities. I am with you to take you beyond your perceived restraints.

I am taking you to new heights. You will be delighted in what you see, but you must wait for Me instead of striking out on your own in presumption. This will be a time when you will begin to know the difference between the leading of My Spirit and the impulse of your own soul. I will lead you in perfect timing if you will wait on Me and trust in Me, says the Lord.

Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.

Stay Focused On Me And Allow Truth And Righteousness To Prevail

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Sept. 2, 2010:

Chaotic conditions abound, but you do not have to be affected by your environment if you stay in My presence and maintain peace and order, says the Lord. Stay focused on Me and allow truth and righteousness to prevail. This is a time when it is better to stay quiet so that you can perceive and discern the spiritual atmosphere and be ready to prevail over all evil. And, after you’ve done what you can do, stand in a strong and uncompromising position.

Ephesians 6:13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Be Willing To Release Everything You Have Held Dear In Order To Receive My Highest And Best

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

I have great things in store for you, but there are times when you have to let go of what you thought was good in order to receive something better. You cannot live in your yesterdays and get the most of out the current flow of My Spirit. Now is the time when you must give up the ideals, assumptions and fantasies that do not exemplify spiritual reality for you now. Be willing to release everything you have held dear in order to receive My highest and best, says the Lord. Do not be afraid.

Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”

One may have awakened to the 3:00 AM alarm.  One may have lain back down knowing that one’s 3:20 AM alarm may have been scheduled to go off.

For I Have Called You To Be Kings And Priests, A Holy Nation

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — July 26, 2010:

Come higher and go deeper.  Come with all haste.  For I will reveal to you the revelation of things that will set you free.  This revelation will define your nature and your character, and it will let you know who you are in Me and who I am in you.  You are a pillar in My glorious church.  Will I not bless My church; will I not cleanse My church; will I not speak to My church? Remember who you are this day, says the Lord, for I have called you to be kings and priests, a holy nation.  To those who answer the call and open the door I will come in and position Myself to speak with you and open the eyes of your vision so you may see, know and understand those things that are coming in this season.  For I say, the time is indeed short.  Awaken yourself as one who has awakened out of a deep sleep.  I know you; you are not hidden from Me.  I know you very well.  In fact, I know you better than you know yourself.  So arise, come into the light.  Arise, come into the glory.  Arise, and allow My anointing to break forth into your spirit for surely it will be the revealer of those things hidden.  Turn from discouragement, condemnation, fear, and those things the enemy is bringing against you.  Turn, I say, and  establish yourself this day on a turning point; a point in which you turn to Me with a full heart, with full assurance, with full faith that I will do My work in you.  I will complete the work I have begun in you, says the Lord.

I saw people changing their position. And, I thought of Joel chapter 2 with everyone marching in formation. And, I heard the Lord say that this repositioning will bring about Kingdom victory.

Joel 2:7 They run like mighty men, they climb the wall like men of war; every one marches in formation, and they do not break ranks. They do not push one another; every one marches in his own column. Though they lunge between the weapons, they are not cut down.

One may have awakened on one’s own this morning.  One may not have heard any alarms and may have overslept.  One may have checked the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have been encouraged.  Thank You Jesus!

One may have entered one’s prayer at 4:50 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 Ezekiel 40.  Thank You Jesus!

For I Am The Lord Your God Who Watches Over All Things, And I Watch Over You

It’s All About Jesus!

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — February 15, 2010:

For you, My people, are in a season of change.  There are things that will change in your life now.  Remain hopeful for those changes will all be for the better.  There will be changes that will come that will re-direct you; changes that will necessitate My wisdom; that will stretch your abilities.  But, I say unto you this day, I will be with you in these changes.  For I am the Lord your God who watches over all things, and I watch over you.  I know the thoughts that I have of you; the thoughts of good and not of evil.  So, when you find it necessary to make changes that will effect your life and to take on new responsibilities or to go in a new direction then worship,  for I, the Lord God,  will lead and guide you.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — February 15, 2010:

Watch and be alert to distractions that will take you away from the purity of your relationship with Me, says the Lord. If you can concentrate on walking in the Spirit, you and those with you will experience spiritual breakthrough. And, you will never be the same again. Remember that I am building through you on a foundation that has been swept clean and the religious debris burned. It is of vital importance that you do not build according to flesh and temporal things, but build according to the leading of My Spirit that which is eternal.

Psalms 127:1 Unless the LORD builds the house, They labor in vain who build it; unless the LORD guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain.

One may have awakened and read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  Today’s message may speak directly to one.  One may have been encouraged.  Thank you Jesus.
