SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 7/1/11:

In a vision I was in a heavily forested area, and the trees were so numerous that the sunshine was thin and there was a sense of foreboding and a I had a tendency to be weighed down with the darkness. Then, I emerged into a clearing. It was a rather large meadow filled with grass, wild flowers, and abundant sunshine. And, I heard the Lord say that those who will believe in and trust in Him are about to emerge from a season of oppression. There will be a clearing away of those things that have been a burden to His people.

Isaiah 9:4 For You have broken the yoke of his burden and the staff of his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor, as in the day of Midian.

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — Sept. 7, 2010:

Many of My people are laboring under the burden of anxiety because of their circumstances.  And because they are laboring under the spirit of anxiety they are not at rest and they are not at full strength.  So I say to those of you who find yourself in a time of anxiety, fear not, for I am with you.  Fear not for I have not departed from you.  Fear not for I will not abandon you nor will I leave you without My help.  Turn your eyes again with faith upon Me, says the Lord, and I will lift you up and I will be your strength.  I will become the very strength of your heart and the strength of your body.  For the times of refreshing come from the presence of the Lord.  In My presence your youth will be renewed and you will rise up on wings of eagles.  Take those things that trouble you and place them upon My altar where I can deal with them.  As long as you hold on to them and as long as you fret about them, and as long as you worry about them, they are not Mine, says the Lord God Almighty.

The enemy is doing his utmost to paralyze you with fear of failure and condemnation. Refuse to allow the devil to strip you of confidence to accomplish what I have set before you. As long as you are one with Me and your confidence is in Me, you will come through this attack in victory, says the Lord.

1 John 5:14 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.

Come to Me, and let Me relieve you of every burden. Let your requests be made known; release them to Me. It is your faith that will bring forth My will in every circumstance. Give up trying to micromanage every detail of your life and surroundings, and let Me bring order out of chaos and establish peace. Trust Me to reveal purpose in your life and bring it to completion, says the Lord.

Philippians 1:6 …being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.

Just Rest!

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

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

Come into My presence and be still. Release every burden and every disturbing thought and emotion, and just rest. For, certainly as you are quiet before Me, I will comfort you, fill you to overflowing with My Spirit, and release healing and restoration into your entire being. No more worry or striving or clamoring. Just rest. I am the God who heals you and delivers you from calamity and destruction, says the Lord.

Psalm 91:1-11 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you. Only with your eyes shall you look, and see the reward of the wicked. Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place, no evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; for He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.

One may have awakened a little after midnight.  One may have done some writing.  One may have checked the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin around 3:15 AM.  Thank you Jesus!

One may be going through a period where one may not know exactly how things will take place in the near future.  One may have to put one’s faith and total trust in the Lord.  One may not be in control.  This may be a most challenging time in one’s life.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet on time.  One may have sung praises to the Lord.  One may have been discouraged by an event that may have taken place the previous day.  One may have talked to the Lord until one may have felt better.  One may have prayed for help, leading and guidance.  One may have confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture.  One may have been led to Psalms 53.  Thank you Jesus!

At 4:30 AM, one may have left one’s prayer closet.  One may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Thank you Lord Jesus for answering each prayer request according to your will, in Jesus’ name, one may pray, amen.

Be Sensitive To The Leading Of My Spirit

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — January 21, 2010:

Be sensitive to the leading of My Spirit, for you are entering a time when you can truly put an end to procrastination and tie up loose ends. I am surrounding My people with an extraordinary measure of favor and grace to do all that is necessary. As soon as you choose to be done with the things that have overwhelmed you, the burden of heaviness will lift and you will be free to move forward. I will enhance and accelerate your every effort, says the Lord, but you must take the first step.

Hebrews 12:12-13 Therefore strengthen the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees, and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be dislocated, but rather be healed.

One may have awakened early this morning and did some writing.  One may have fallen back asleep.  When it may have been one’s appointed time to get up, one may have felt really tired.  One may have considered sleeping another hour at least.  One knew in one’s heart that the thought was not possible and that one must keep one’s appointed time with Jesus at 3:30 AM.

One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.   It may have been the answer to one’s prayer from earlier in the morning.  One may have asked the Lord for help.  One may have actually written the prayer down in one’s writings.  Again, Jesus provided help and encouragement for one through the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  Thank you Jesus.  Now one may know what one must do.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet on time.  One may have sung praises to the Lord, confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today.  One may have been led to Ezekiel 3.

Thank you Lord for helping one to remember the passage for today. As one may have been writing just now one had absolutely nothing; one may have totally forgotten today’s passage of scripture and had no clue whatsoever.  One may have prayed to the Lord asking for help; Ezekiel 4 may have come to one’s mind.

One may have checked the post from yesterday to make sure that one was not thinking of yesterday’s scripture.  The passage of scripture from yesterday may have been Amos 1.

One may have grabbed one’s Bible and began to read Ezekiel 4.  One thought, “This is not it.”  Although one may have read this chapter in the past, it may not have felt familiar or recent.

One may have flipped the page back one, revealing Ezekiel 3.  One may have begun to read this chapter.  “That’s it!” one thought and thanked the Lord for His help.

One may have left one’s prayer closet at 4:30 AM.  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, in Jesus’ name, amen.

I Will Lead You In The Path Of Victory And Bring You Forth On Zion’s Hill

It’s All About Jesus!

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — January 18, 2010:

The Lord God wants you to know today that He loves you; that He cares about you; that He watches over you. He knows the trouble that you have been through and that you have chosen to stay the course, and in spite of the hardship, to walk with Him. And, the Lord says, now is the time of your reward. These are the days in which I will give gifts to My beloved. For the bride must have her wedding gift and those gifts will be multiplied and they will be varied from person to person. They will be those things which I desire for each of you; whether it be the spirit of revelation, the gift of prophecy, or the gift of healing. For I would have you to know and to understand that I am not a God that cannot see or a God who does not know you. I watch over you and I walk with you even when you do not understand that I am there; even when you have questions and are not sure that I am with you. I have spoken in My word that I would never leave you nor forsake you, and that, My beloved, is the truth. I am calling out to you today to come closer to Me, because I am speaking My words to you this day. I would have you to receive the presence of My glory and to put on the armor of light. I would have you to go to war. Victory is assured! I will lead you in the path of victory and bring you forth on Zion’s hill. There I shall also give you opportunities to rest in the midst of the battle. I shall equip you and teach you and send you out again into the valley and into the battle. It is not My purpose to wear you out and I shall not. It is only Satan who wears out the saints. When you find yourself weary and without strength come unto Me with that burden and I shall lift it from you and restore, strengthen, and heal you, says the Lord God.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — January 18, 2010:

In a vision, I saw a wall before me that seemed to be a dead end. Yet, as I got closer, the wall evaporated, and I could see clearly that this obstacle had been an illusion which had given way to what I heard in the Spirit was the “expanse of destiny.” And, I heard the Lord say: This wall of obstruction has become a door of renewed hope and freedom that is set before you. I release you now to break away from the past and break through everything that has been a hindrance to your spiritual progress.

Hosea 2:15 I will give her her vineyards from there, and the Valley of Achor as a door of hope; she shall sing there, as in the days of her youth, as in the day when she came up from the land of Egypt.

One may have awakened this morning to the alarm going off at 3:00 AM.  One may have reset it for 3:20 AM.  At the sound of the second alarm, one may have logged onto one’s computer.

One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today ever so slowly, taking in every word into one’s spirit.  One may have been so blessed by what one was reading.  One’s heart laid open before the Lord.

One may have been so engrossed with the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin that one did not pay attention to the time.  When one looked at the time, one may have been late for one’s prayer closet time with Jesus.  One may have apologized to the Lord and asked for forgiveness.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet so encouraged.  One may have had some amazing things take place in one’s life lately.  One may know it’s the Lord.

One may have begun one’s prayer time with songs of praise.  One confessed one’s sins and prayed for the sick.  One may have prayed for the scripture for today.  One may have been led to Isaiah 24.

One may have left one’s prayer closet after 4:30 AM.  One may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.

Thank you Lord Jesus for answering one’s prayers and each prayer request according to your perfect will, in Jesus’ name one may pray, amen.
