Be Bold And Do Not Be Afraid

It’s All About Jesus!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 9/15/11:

In a vision I saw the priests of God carrying the Ark of the Covenant to the edge of the Jordan River as when the waters rolled back so that the Israelites could walk across. I realized that the people did not all cross at the exact same moment. There were those who were first to arrive on the other side of the river and the procession continued until they all crossed. In the same way we, the body of Christ, are not all in the same place in our walk with the Lord. We are all at different stages of growth and understanding.

And, the Lord said, “Some of you, My people, will move to a higher level in your spiritual warfare against the powers of darkness. Those who are ready will be more aware than ever of the works of the enemy. I will begin to give you the faith and strategy to wage a good warfare, overcome, and gain the victory over every attack. Be bold, and do not be afraid.”

Jeremiah 12:5 If you have run with the footmen, and they have wearied you, then how can you contend with horses? And if in the land of peace, in which you trusted, they wearied you, then how will you do in the floodplain of the Jordan?

Do Not Believe The Lie That You Are Unimportant

It’s All About Jesus!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 6/2/11:

You, My surrendered people, have become like a well-oiled machine, doing the work of the Kingdom. You don’t perceive the unity of the Spirit because you are only doing your part. But, if you could rise up and view the Body of Christ from a higher perspective, you would know that your part is vital to the spiritual function of My will. The enemy would have you discount your contribution to that function, says the Lord, but he is a liar. Do not believe the lie that you are unimportant.

Ephesians 4:16 from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.

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 Matthew 2 – Wise men seek Jesus.  Thank You Jesus!

Freely You Have Received; Freely Give

It’s All About Jesus!

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — May 4, 2010:

Come My people, and drink of the anointing that I am now bringing forth. Come to that spiritual habitation where the river of life and power come together. Come and drink, for the land is dry and the Church has become a wilderness. Drink of these waters until you are full, and then go forth. Allow Me to bring the flow of My waters from you. The people of the land are dry and thirsty; give them water to drink as I have given you. Freely you have received; freely give. You are entering into a season of transformation. This transformation will come when the rivers clap their hands together, says the Lord.

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

In a vision I saw a coat of arms. There were intricate designs on the shield, but the only two I remember were the fleur de lis and a lion. The lion is the Lion of Judah and the fleur de lis is the Lily of the Valley … both symbolic of Jesus Christ. I thought of the coat of arms as a family thing, or unity in the Body of Christ. And, that we are a warring family ready to go to war.

Joel 2:7-8 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 read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin this morning.  One may have been encouraged.  Thank You Jesus.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet.  One may have praised the Lord with song.  One may have begun to confess one’s sins and realized that one may have been really angry about issues.  One may have asked the Lord to forgive one.

One may have decided to take one’s dog outside.  The dog seemed to be irritable and one thought that the dog had to go.  While outside, one refused to walk the area with the dog.  One may have kept the dog confined to a small area.  The dog may have gone very little if at all.  One may have been angry concerning this.

One may have come back into one’s prayer closet and confessed one’s sins including being angry about one’s dog’s performance.

One may have thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have been led to Jeremiah 25.  Thank You Jesus!

Come To Me, Knowing That You Have My Undivided Attention In The Midst Of Your Trials And Your Triumphs

It’s All About Jesus!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — January 1, 2010:

The work that I am doing in you, My people, is multiple and varied. What I do among you will encompass numerous aspects composed of distinct elements and qualities — diversified to the point that each individual in My kingdom will be treated uniquely. I do not see you only as part of a great and global assembly; I see you separately. I know your needs and your desires, and your relationship with Me is very personal indeed; yet you are part of an indivisible whole, the Body of Christ. Beloved, you are not hidden in the crowd, nor can you hide. Come to Me, knowing that you have My undivided attention in the midst of your trials and your triumphs. Go forth in the assurance that I am with and for you, says the Lord.

Romans 8:31-39 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written: “For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

One’s alarm may have blared at 3:00 AM.  One turned it off and fell back asleep.  When one had finally awakened, it may have been after 3:30 AM.  One may have apologized to the Lord for oversleeping.

One may have logged onto one’s computer and read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin a few times until one understood it.  One may have proceeded to one’s prayer closet and prepared oneself for this special time with the Lord.

One may have started one’s praise session with song at 3:52 AM.  One may have confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for the sick.  While praying for the sick, one may have looked at the time.  It may have been exactly 4:52 AM.  It may have been time for one to leave one’s prayer closet.  Instead of leaving, one may have asked the Lord for more time and to forgive one for staying longer.  One may have wanted to finish praying for the sick.

After one finished praying for the sick, one may have stood and lifted one’s Bible towards heaven and prayed with all one’s heart for the Lord to give one and those who may read this blog, “scripture” that may be quite meaningful and profound.

One may have opened the Bible to Jeremiah 40.  One began to read and read Jeremiah 40 – 45.  One just could not put one’s Bible down.  Although one may have read this passage in the past; it was still very fresh and intriguing.

One may have left one’s prayer closet after one read the chapters from the Book of Jeremiah and logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  One may have been praying for individuals and right in the middle of praying one became engrossed in thought about Jeremiah 40 – 45.

One thought about Ishmael the son of Nethaniah, how he did evil and escaped those who sought his life.  One may have said to the Lord, “Lord when we read these passages, we read them as if these people are still alive on this earth.  But we have to remember that judgment has come to them and they got what they deserved.  Then one felt ashamed for wanting vengeance on the evil.  One may have said, “Lord, I don’t desire that anybody go to hell, why should I gloat?”  Then one may have said, “Gloat, is that even a word, what am I talking about Lord?”  One may have thought to be beside oneself.

One decided to type the word gloat into one’s dictionary.  One may have spelled it “glote” and it came back, “’glote’ could not be found.” One may have tried a different spelling: G-L-O-A-T. One’s dictionary may have retrieved: “gloat – contemplate or dwell on one’s own success or another’s misfortune with smugness or malignant pleasure: his enemies gloated over his death.” One may have been blown away.  One may have wondered, “How did one even know this word and used it correctly while talking to the Lord?  Wow!

One may have tried to focus on the prayers again.  This was too weird.  One may have felt cold and tried to ignore it until one finished praying.  One may have decided to get up and get one’s snuggle blanket with sleeves.  One may have wrapped oneself in it.

Earlier this morning, before one had entered one’s prayer closet, one may have attempted to turn on the space heater.  It may have come on but the heat did not blow out.  One tried it a few times and thought one smelled something burning inside so one may have turned it off.  One may have thought to let one’s daughter know it was broken.

So now one may have been standing with the snuggle on while looking for the space heater.  One did not see it and thought that one’s daughter may have taken it to their room while one was in one’s prayer closet.  One may have thought to warn one’s daughter that it was broken.  One may have noticed the cord lying on the floor and the space heater behind the computer chair.

One picked up the space heater and prayed to the Lord to heal it with his healing power.  Then one said, “No Lord, please fix it with your power!”  One turned it on and it worked perfectly.  It may still be on as one may be writing this blog.  Thank you Jesus!  One may have finished praying for the outstanding prayer requests.

Thank you Lord for answering one’s prayers and the prayer request for each individual from the website, in Jesus’ name, one may pray, amen.
