Refuse To Allow The Enemy To Cause You To Feel Awkward In Places Where You Belong

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 4/7/11:

I kept hearing the word “awkward” in my spirit. One definition is “to lack ease or grace as in movement or expression.” And, the LORD said: When you are feeling awkward it is often the result of a confidence crisis when you are unsure of yourself and of how you fit or what you have to contribute. But, I tell you truly that you fit perfectly in My kingdom and in My body, of which you are a vital member. Refuse to allow the enemy to cause you to feel awkward in places where you belong; his purpose in doing this is to derail you and cause you to be cut off and isolated. If you will trust Me in these awkward times, I will cause you to feel secure in Me, and I will give you the anointing of ease.

1 Corinthians 12:27 Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually.

Do Battle In The Power Of My Spirit To Defeat The Devil Where You Find Him

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 11/11/2010:

Calm yourself and listen to My still, small voice. If you will hush the noise of fear and confusion, you will hear and be directed by wisdom. Stand strong in faith and refuse to allow the enemy to get the upper hand in any situation. Do battle in the power of My Spirit to defeat the devil where you find him, says the Lord. I will cause you to come forth in great victory!

James 3:13-18 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom. But if you have bitter envy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth. This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic. For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy. Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.

One’s daughter may have awakened one this morning.  One may have been late for one’s special time with Jesus.  One may have heard one’s alarm from time to time but may have fallen back asleep.

I Call You To Come Forth In Renewed Purpose And Power

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 11/10/2010:

Beloved, the changes that have occurred in the past few years have given cause to redefine yourself. You have even been tempted to believe that you have lost your identity somewhere along the line, which is not true. You are still unique and precious in My sight. And, I am molding you and bringing clarity to your life according to who you are in Me. You have lost nothing; the cherished elements of your character and nature are ready to emerge in high definition, and I call you to come forth in renewed purpose and power, says the Lord.

Isaiah 58:14 Then you shall delight yourself in the LORD; and I will cause you to ride on the high hills of the earth, and feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father. The mouth of the LORD has spoken.

Resist The Temptations That The Devil Brings To Cause You To Get Discouraged

It’s All About Jesus!


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

Beloved, resist the temptations that the devil brings to cause you to get discouraged. Stand strong and believe. Refuse to allow fear to undermine your faith and your ability to achieve and maintain emotional and mental stability. The breakthrough that will follow this time of testing will be well worth the effort necessary to overcome, says the Lord.

John 16:33 “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

Don’t allow current situations and demands to cause you to get sidetracked from your main purpose and destiny. Procrastination and neglect will lead you away from vitality in the Spirit. Be diligent to seek My face and acquire wisdom and guidance, says the Lord. Position yourself with right motives and attitudes so that you can acquire the best I have for you.

Luke 10:41-42 And Jesus answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her.”
