I Am With You On The Narrow Path To Your Destiny

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Resist the temptation to get into condemnation when things don’t turn out as you expected they would. Those things that you perceive as being mistakes serve to set the boundaries of your spiritual flow. I would have you pay attention to those boundaries and rejoice in receiving course corrections. I am with you to keep you on the narrow path to your destiny, says the Lord.

Proverbs 3:11 My son, do not despise the chastening of the LORD, nor detest His correction.

One may have begun to praise the Lord at 3:30 AM.  Jesus, please forgive one for starting one’s prayer time late.  One may have confessed one’s sins and thanked the Lord.

One may not have prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  Please forgive one Lord Jesus.

One may have read the passage of scripture for today.  One may have been encouraged.  Thank You Jesus!

One may have logged onto the website to pray for prayer requests.  The prayer requests may have been unavailable due to technical issues.

Stay Within The Lines Of Your Jurisdiction

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 3/23/11:

Define and maintain concise boundaries so that you do not take responsibility that is not legitimately yours. And, conversely, do not try to transfer your rightful responsibility to someone else. Your God-given authority is directly linked to responsibility, and you would do well to stay within the lines of your jurisdiction, says the Lord.

Hosea 14:9 Who is wise? Let him understand these things. Who is prudent? Let him know them. For the ways of the LORD are right; the righteous walk in them, but transgressors stumble.

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 Acts 3.  Thank You Jesus!

Remember That I Have Given You Authority And Power To Overcome

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 1/21/11:

Stir yourself up in your most holy faith. Push back the darkness that tries to encroach and violate your boundaries and the rights of your covenant with Me, says the Lord. Refuse the attacks of the enemy, which are designed to bring you down in oppression and reproach. Let your light shine so that the darkness is dispelled and the devil has no place in you. Remember that I have given you authority and power to overcome.

Jude 20-21: But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

Now Is The Time To Establish And Maintain Good Boundaries

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Oct. 4, 2010:

Beloved, watch for the enemy to either tempt you to get involved in situations that are none of your business, or he will tempt others to violate your boundaries by not minding their own business. Either situation will create problems that you will ultimately not like to deal with. Now is the time to establish and maintain good boundaries, says the Lord.

Proverbs 26:17 He who passes by and meddles in a quarrel not his own is like one who takes a dog by the ears.

Obedience Is The Key

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

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

Watch and be on the alert for people who will try to take advantage of you. They will be motivated by selfishness and a sense of desperation without regard for your rights, space or boundaries. You must stand your ground and not be afraid to say NO; not just from a position of self-preservation, but because your real need is to stay in the flow of My Spirit and to respond only to My leading, says the Lord. Obedience is the key. Be strong and resolute.

Isaiah 30:21 Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” whenever you turn to the right hand or whenever you turn to the left.

One may have awakened this morning to the sound of the 3:00 AM alarm.  One may have logged onto one’s computer.  The Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin may have come at 3:04 AM.  One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin and may have been encouraged.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet a little before 3:30 AM (one’s start-time).  One may have been so engrossed in thought about a situation that one may have begun one’s praise late.  One may have apologized to Jesus and may have begun to be engrossed in outside thoughts again.

One may have come to one’s self after a while and may have apologized to the Lord for a second time.  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 John 18.  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.

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.
