Refuse To Allow Presumption To Cloud Your Discernment

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns–01/12/12:

Refuse to allow presumption to cloud your discernment. You should never act, react, respond, or take your next step based on what you assume is truth. If you are uncertain about an issue or circumstance, take the time to investigate and discover the facts. Just because your conclusion seems reasonable does not make it true. And, presumption will plunge you into the darkness of deception, says the Lord. Stay in the light and truth, and maintain confidence in My word as you follow My precepts.

Psalms 19:13 Keep back Your servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me. Then I shall be blameless, and I shall be innocent of great transgression.

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 the sick.  One may have prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have been led to Nehemiah 10 – The People Decided to Live for God.  Thank You Jesus!

One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have been encouraged.  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.

Begin To Apply By Faith My Word To Every Circumstance.

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — 9/12/11:


Arise My children for it is time for you to rise and shine in the kingdom of the Father. It is time for you to be fully equipped. I have been teaching you, leading you, and guiding you. Now it is the time of application. It is time for you to apply that which you have learned. Begin to apply by faith My word to every circumstance. Learn to apply by faith the words that I give you so that they will become a light unto your path. Let your faith now arise and come higher. Begin to exercise that spiritual muscle that I have given to you. Learn to walk by faith and believe with a faith that is greater than you have ever exercised before. Your faith will come by hearing and by hearing the word of the Lord and your faith will work through the love of Jesus Christ. Allow faith to become the substance of the things that you hope for. Let is become the evidence of that which you cannot perceive or see. Allow it to become a witness to you that I am indeed with you and I will bring you through to victory as you walk with Me in this season of Glory, says the Lord.

Refuse to evaluate the details of your circumstances according to how you feel. I am doing a new thing, and that which you will be required to release is not a loss but is necessary and beneficial to you in the grand scheme of things. This is not a time of mourning, but a time of rejoicing at being established solidly on spiritual ground so that you will be able to progress rapidly from here, says the Lord. Lift up your head and set your heart on pilgrimage.

Luke 21:28 “Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.”

Seek Me For Solutions To Problems, And Ask For Wisdom

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 12/24/2010:

Watch for moments of frustration, and take time to regroup and regain perspective. Things are not as bad as they initially seem. Seek Me for solutions to problems, and ask for wisdom. For, I will certainly bring enlightenment and direction in every circumstance. Stay calm and put your trust in Me, says the Lord.

Throw caution to the wind and launch out into the deep waters of revelation of My purposes for you. I am seeking those whose hearts are willing to risk everything to live life in the Kingdom to its fullest.

John 8:32 “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” 
John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.”

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.

Just Keep Pressing Through

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — March 16, 2010:

As you are faithful to trust Me with every situation and circumstance, you will see breakthroughs one-by-one on every level of existence and activity. There is a repositioning that will manifest in unique ways that will remove stubborn hindrances and obstacles that have kept you from moving ahead. Just keep pressing through, says the Lord.

Proverbs 4:12 When you walk, your steps will not be hindered, And when you run, you will not stumble.

One may have awakened around 1:00 AM.  One may have buckled down and got some work done.  One may have been surprised how much one may have accomplished without the distractions that one may have throughout the day.

One may have tried unsuccessfully to get a quick nap before one’s special time with Jesus.  At 3:20 AM, one may have logged onto one’s computer and checked the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have been so encouraged once again.  Thank you Jesus!

Many things may be going on in one’s life.  One may have trouble coming from all sides.  One may just give it all to Jesus and try to stay focused on what’s most important.  One’s ankle may be much better but it may not be 100% healed.  One may have to be careful not to twist it or stay on it too much through out the day.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 3:30 AM.  One may have begun to praise the Lord with song, confessed one’s sins and prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have been led to Psalms 18.  Thank you Jesus.

One’s grandson may have interrupted one while one may have been in one’s prayer closet.  The child may have been hungry.  One may have prayed and asked the Lord if it was okay to feed the child once one left one’s prayer closet and to pray for the outstanding prayer requests later.  The child may have been watching something on one’s computer and one may have been tired as well.

One may have prayed for the outstanding prayer requests this morning after breakfast.  Lord Jesus, thank you for hearing and answering each prayer request according to your perfect will, amen.

Develop The Habit Of Walking In The Spirit So That Your Flesh Cannot Have Free Rein

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — February 10, 2010:

Stop and discern My heart in every situation and circumstance. Make sure that everything that you say or do is in complete accord with My purposes. Develop the habit of walking in the Spirit so that your flesh cannot have free rein. You will be amazed at how easy it really is once you make the decision to not just react to life but to respond to My Spirit in every instance. This is a new day and requires a new approach, says the Lord.

Galatians 5:16 I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.

One’s alarm may have gone off at 3:00 AM.  One may have fallen back asleep.  One may have awakened late for one’s special time with Jesus.  One may have hurriedly read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 4:15 AM.  One may have begun by praising the Lord with song.  One may have begun to confess one’s sins only to be interrupted.  One may have had to leave one’s prayer closet and finish praying at one’s computer desk.

Individuals may have interrupted one time and time again.  One may have got through one’s confessions eventually.  One may have prayed for outstanding prayer requests on the website sometime during the late morning.  Thank you Jesus for answering the prayer request of each individual according to your will.

One may have prayed for a passage of scripture this afternoon.  One may have been led to Jeremiah 33.  Thank you Jesus.  One’s day may have been most unusual because one may have chose to let one’s flesh lead.  Had one gotten up at the appropriate time, one’s time with Jesus may have been uninterrupted and one’s prayer time may have flowed as usual.  Lord, please forgive one for one’s sins, in Jesus’ name, one may pray, amen.
