SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Beloved, look for continuing resolution to stubborn problems. You’re making progress, but you are not quite at the point of victory. Much of this has to do with things that are not under your control, but in the hands of other people. Rest assured that I am on your side and with you. The flow of My Spirit will bring you to a place of resolute triumph, says the Lord. Just keep moving, and do not give up.

2 Corinthians 2:14 Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.

Surrender Yourself Completely To Me, Says The Lord

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS: 

Surrender yourself completely to Me, says the Lord.  Ask and I will show you areas of your soul where you have reserved the right of exercise and control.  Those places of thought and feelings will remain a battle ground for the enemy to use against you until they are completely surrendered and redeemed.  It won’t be hard for you to recognize those areas because they have repeatedly been the source of difficulty in your life.  Look in the realms of bitterness, condemnation, failure, fear, and worry.  The act of surrender must be a deliberate act of your will.  If you surrender, I will do the work of redemption. 

Philippians 2:13 for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.

Refuse To Allow The Devil And His Plans To Get You Off Balance

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Be on guard and remain fully and solidly positioned in My presence, says the Lord.  For, the enemy has released an attack to get you off track and to scatter you to the wind.  His strategy is to cause you to get emotionally invested in things you have no control over.  Yours is not to try to control but to trust Me in those things.  Refuse to allow the devil and his plans to get your off balance.  Stand strong and resolute in My purposes.  I am with you and for you.

Nahum 2:1 He who scatters has come up before your face. Man the fort! Watch the road! Strengthen your flanks! Fortify your power mightily.

Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 9/27/11:

There are things that you need to know before you can move forward, but don’t push. Wait on Me, says the Lord, because everything needs to be in order and in perfect timing. Refuse to get frustrated when things aren’t moving along as quickly as you would desire. Take a deep breath, rest in the assurance that I am in control, and trust Me. Everything will be all right.

Isaiah 40:31 But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.

Protect And Preserve What I Have Given You And All That I Have Given You To Do

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — June 23, 2010:

Beloved, I want you to be aware that the enemy will do his best to use people to intrude into your life to establish a position of illegitimate authority and control. Be on the alert for those who barge into your life’s circumstances uninvited. Make sure that new associations are with people of integrity and that they have no ulterior motives, says the Lord. Protect and preserve what I have given you and all that I have given you to do. Be sensitive to My leading, for I will give you discernment, and I will cause you to maintain security.

Psalms 119:117 Hold me up, and I shall be safe, and I shall observe Your statutes continually.

One may have awakened to the sound of one’s 3:00 AM alarm.  One may have decided to reset the alarm for 3:20 AM.  The second alarm may have gone off.  One may have continued to lie in one’s bed.  One may have thought a few minutes may have passed.  One may have got up and checked the time.  It may have been 3:34 AM and one may have been late for one’s prayer time with Jesus.  Please forgive one Lord Jesus.

One may have logged onto one’s computer and may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have been encouraged.  Thank You Jesus!

Answers And Breakthrough Will Come As You Seek Me

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — January 28, 2010:

Keep looking up, and refuse to allow discouragement to keep you from breakthrough. There are things over which you have no control, things that are beyond your level of responsibility and authority. These are the circumstances that you need to release to Me, says the Lord. That means you must let go completely. Otherwise, your thoughts and emotions concerning these issues only hinder the work of My Spirit. Answers and breakthrough will come as You seek Me, and I will give you peace when you trust Me.

Isaiah 26:3 You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.

One may have awakened at 11 PM yesterday and stayed up until a little after 3 AM this morning.  One may have tried to get a very quick nap before one’s prayer time.  The alarm went off and it may have been time for one to get up.

One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  One may have thought of situations that one may need to give to Jesus totally.  Thank you Jesus.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet a few minutes early and begun to clean. One may have been engrossed in thought and started one’s praise session late. Please forgive one Lord Jesus.

One may have confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for the sick.  One may have asked the Lord to choose the scripture that He desired for today.  One may have been led to Psalms 78.  Thank you Jesus.

AT 4:30 AM, one may have left one’s prayer closet feeling very sleepy.  One may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  One may have had to fight to stay awake.

One may have actually dozed off several times and shortly thereafter felt as if someone may have nudged one from one’s sleeping state.  There may be no other explanation for one staying awake.  Thank you Jesus.

One may have lain down for the night.  One may not have been sleepy anymore.  One may have asked the Lord a question concerning this.  One may have had a little trouble getting to sleep.

Be Strong And Courageous Against Every Power Of Darkness, Says The Lord

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — January 26, 2010:

Watch for the enemy to try to gain access by provoking you through aggravation. Refuse to allow the devil to have any control over you whatsoever. When irritation presents itself, be slow to anger and quick to forgive. Division is an effective weapon against you, My people. Rise up and resist every temptation that would lead to sin in your heart. Be strong and courageous against every power of darkness, says the Lord.

James 1:19-20 So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God

One may have awakened last night, sometime after 11 PM.  One may have been busy doing things that one needed to get done.  One may have stayed up from that time on.

Around 3:20 AM one may have checked the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  One may have been encouraged and was glad for the help.

One may have been aggravated shortly before reading this message from the Lord.  One may have confessed one’s sin and forgave the individual as was suggested in today’s prophecy.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet on time and begun one’s praise and worship at 3:30 AM.  One may have confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for the sick.

Lord, thank you for hearing and answering the prayers for the sick, in Jesus’ name, amen.  One may have prayed for a passage of scripture for today and was led to Isaiah 44.

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

Lord, thank you for answering each prayer request according to your perfect will, in Jesus’ name, amen.

While lying down, one’s phone may have mysteriously begun to play I Corinthians.  One may have been tired and let it play.  One may have awakened later and turned it off.  One’s sleep may have been peaceful up to that point.  One may have gone back to sleep.

Later, one may have awakened and found that I Corinthians was playing again. One may have just had a dream.  An individual in the dream was quoting scripture. One may have asked the individual if they could quote any scripture from the Bible? The individual may have said, “Yes.”  One may have thought the dream demonic even though scripture seemed to be spoken; one may not be able to recall any of the verses.

One may believe something is wrong with one’s cell phone. One may have prayed over one’s phone while rebuking and binding the enemy and one’s phone worked okay for a while.

One’s phone may be acting weird again.  It may play the Bible or if it’s on a certain screen, it chooses options until it cannot go any further.  One may have received a call and was unable to answer the call and had to call the individual back.

Lord Jesus, please have your way with one’s cell phone, in Jesus’ name, one may pray, amen.

Actively Take Control Of Your Mind And Do Not Allow Negative Thoughts Or Emotions To Rule!

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — January 15, 2010:

Beloved, refuse to allow your emotional responses to circumstances make you feel like you are losing ground. Discouragement will disable you and keep you bound by infirmity, making you feel like a victim. But, I have given you power and authority to break free and stay free from everything that would hold you, says the Lord. Actively take control of your mind, and do not allow negative thoughts or emotions to rule.

2 Corinthians 10:4-6 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.

One may have awakened early in the morning after 1:00 AM and may have done some writing.  One may have laid back down for a quick nap before one’s prayer closet time.  Around 3:25 AM one may have logged onto one’s computer to check the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  One may have been encouraged by today’s message.

At 3:30 AM one may have entered one’s prayer closet.  One may have sung praises to Lord and began to pour one’s heart out to Jesus.  Right in the midst of one’s outpouring, one broke out into praise with a song.  One may have been so glad, grateful and thankful that Jesus was a very present help.

One may have confessed one’s sins and thanked the Lord. One may not remember praying for a passage of scripture for today.  One may have prayed (as one may have been writing this afternoon) asking the Lord to help one remember, nothing came to one.  Usually, if one forgets the passage of scripture for the day, the Holy Spirit will bring it back to one.

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

One may want to thank God right now for His goodness.  Yesterday one may have been at an all time low.  One may have anticipated certain events taking place and thought that they could not be changed.  Well Jesus has done just that.  He may have come to one’s rescue and changed some major issues.  Thank you Jesus!

One may have asked the Lord why a certain event could not take place another way. This very question that one may have posed may have been the Lord’s answer to a major concern.  Wow!  One may Hope this means that one may have the mind of Christ.  Lol!  One may be going through, yet, obstacles may be falling by the wayside.  Thank you Jesus!

One may have gotten great news yesterday afternoon concerning an issue that may have been going on for more than a year.  Another hurdle cleared.  Thank you Jesus!

Some things one may not know how they will unfold.  One must trust the Lord and this may be the hardest thing for one to do right now.  One may not know how the blessings or help will come.  One may keep one’s spiritual eyes and ears open.

There may be major decisions that may take place in the near future.  Lord, please lead and guide one and one’s family every step of the way, in Jesus’ name one may pray, amen.

The Spirit Of Divination Is On The Rise

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — January 12, 2010:

The spirit of divination is on the rise. It has once again reared its ugly head to control and manipulate apart from responsibility and legitimate authority. Sharpen your discernment and watch for the manifestation of this spirit to interrupt the flow of My Holy Spirit, says the Lord. Those who allow this spirit to work through them have opened a door and made a way through self-will and rebellion. Stand strong and unwavering in My guidance, for I will direct your steps with the gentle nudging of My Spirit.

1 Samuel 15:23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the LORD, He also has rejected you from being king.

One may have awakened this morning by the alarm.   One had been up recently, writing, so one definitely wanted to get more rest.  At 3:20 AM, one may have got up to log onto one’s computer.  One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  One may have been grateful for today’s warning.

Recently, one may have taken matters into one’s own hands.  After the fact, one may have realized one’s folly and that one should have prayed and given the issue to Jesus.  One should have stood back and let God be God.  One may have been self willed and rebellious.  Please forgive one Lord Jesus, in Jesus’ name one may pray, amen.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 3:30 AM.  One praised the Lord with song, confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord, prayed for the sick and prayed for the passage of scripture for today.

One may have stood and lifted one’s Bible towards heaven and prayed.  One may have opened one’s Bible to Daniel 4.  One may have thanked the Lord.  This may be a favorite passage of one’s.  One may like Daniel 3 as well.  One may have been led to Job 18 yesterday.  One may have been blown away by this passage that the Lord had chosen.

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 Jesus for hearing and answering the prayer requests and one’s prayers.  Amen.
