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.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Come to the truth of My Word in all things.  Only in truth can your faith be established and exercised to overcome adversity.  Beloved, I have given you precious promises of victory and the authority to succeed.  It is of vital importance that you control your thoughts and emotions as you put your trust in Me, says the Lord.  Refuse to allow fear to gain any ground in you.  

2 Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

Take A Deep Breath, Rest In The Assurance That I Am In Control, And Trust Me

It’s All About Jesus!


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!

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 3:41 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’s eyes may have fell in the middle of Matthew 15.  Next, one’s eyes may have fixed on Matthew 16.  One may have been torn between the two.  One may love both chapters.  One may believe that Matthew 15 may be today’s blog and one may also recommend Matthew 16.  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.
