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.

Be Awake And Aware

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 3/16/11:

Refuse to let your guard down. The enemy is doing what he can to bring plausible temptation that will open the door for him to take advantage of you. If the devil can get the upper hand you will soon be embroiled in an all-out spiritual battle designed to overwhelm you. Now is the time to stand your ground as you set a watch and discern his subtle tactics, says the Lord. Be awake and aware!

2 Corinthians 10:5 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.

One may not have felt good this morning.  One may have decided to press through one’s circumstance.  One may be glad that one may have.  Thank You Jesus for strengthening one.

I Come To You To Set You Free And To Call You To Forth Into Glory

It’s All About Jesus!


THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — 3/1/11:

I am coming to you today as the wind, the water, the fire and as the rain — a habitation of My glory, so that you will flourish in My kingdom and no longer be distraught, condemned or oppressed.  I come to you to set you free and to call you forth into glory.  I am calling you to lay aside all that hinders you and to come by faith to receive that which I am doing.  I am sending you a fresh spiritual atmosphere that brings forth the baptism of My Holy Spirit upon you.  Come with expectation, with joy, peace and faith.  Come and receive.  No longer hold yourself from the water; no longer hide from the wind; no longer disallow the fire.  Come rather and enjoy the fullness of My expression and the fullness of who I am in you.  For, it is written that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit; the Spirit of the living God; the God who transforms you, empowers you, helps you, keeps you in the Way and reveals His kingdom to you.  Come and learn.  Come and live.  Come and walk in My presence this day, says the Lord God.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 3/1/11:

In a mini vision I saw a wind chime.  I believe the wind chime represents us as a body of believers being moved by the Spirit. The shimmering of the wind chime is the effect of the Wind on all the parts of the Body at the same time. And, as the spiritual wind blows, our spirits bear witness to the Holy Spirit and we respond.

John 3:8 “The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”

Some Things Just Need To Be Left Behind

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 2/22/11:

It is time for reorganization. That which is past the point of usefulness in your life will be discarded to make way for what is more suitable to your needs and desires at this point in time. I am doing a new thing, and as you begin to discern and understand this new spiritual environment you will realize that some of your concepts and religious notions are no longer relevant, says the Lord. Some things just need to be left behind.

Philippians 3:13-14 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

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 a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have been led to Song of Solomon 8.  Thank You Jesus!

Get Ready For My Powerful Visitation

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 2/3/11:

I saw myself sitting in church, just as I have been doing every Sunday for 25 years. The difference is that I have more wisdom now and less zeal than back then. And, I heard the Lord say, “You’ve come a long way, but you still have a ways to go. And, just like the process from then until now, I will also bring you to a higher place from now until the end. Get ready for My powerful visitation. Glory will come to My people personally before it manifests corporately.” My heart resounded with, “Yes, Lord, let it be unto me according to your will.” If I had it to do over again, I would laugh more, love more, and never EVER be afraid. Amen.

Luke 1:38 Then Mary said, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her.

One may have assumed that the resounding of one’s alarm may have been for an earlier time.  When one may have decided to check the time, one may have been late for one’s special time with Jesus.  Please forgive one Lord Jesus.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 3:38 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 may have been led to Acts 8.  Thank You Jesus!

You Are Living In Perilous Times, And The Enemy Is Doing All He Can To Take You Down

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 12/10/2010:

Stand strong in the face of adversity. You are living in perilous times, and the enemy is doing all he can to take you down. But, you belong to Me. You are Mine, and I am yours. We are one in the kingdom of eternity. Stay focused on truth and resist the devil and his lies. I am with you to bring you through to victory, says the Lord.

2 Timothy 3:1-5 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power.

One may have awakened this morning.  The Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin may not have posted for the day.  One may have checked the originating website for the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  Yesterday’s message may have been posted.  One may have had to proceed to one’s prayer closet without the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin’s message for today.

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 a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have been led one to Luke 24.  Thank You Jesus!

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.

It Is Written And Cannot Be Broken, That I Am Coming For A Glorious Church

It’s All About Jesus!


THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — 12/6/2010:

It is written My beloved and it cannot be broken, that I am coming for a glorious church. And, if you can believe it and if you can receive it that is the work I am doing in you, even in these days, says the Lord. For the very good work that I have begun with you, in you and through you, I am bringing to completion. You must look unto Me for I am indeed the author and the finisher of your faith. There are those of you who believe your faith is small and that your faith is insignificant and you’ve even prayed, ‘Lord, increase my faith.’ But, I say unto you, the faith of the Lord that is manifest in you in these days will become a greater faith than ever you have known. For you will be able to say that you no longer live by the measure or the lack of your own faith, but you live now by the faith of the Son of God, the faith that enables you to see beyond the veil and enables you to walk through the valley of vision. So I say, beloved, encourage yourself today for the work I am doing in you is ongoing. It is not a small work. It is not an insignificant work. It is a mighty work that you may even be unaware of. But in these last days the glory of the work I am doing in you will begin to shine forth as a light, a beacon to those who have no hope–a radiant light to those that shall come. That is why I have spoken that you are the light of the world, so let your light shine. When the manifestation of it comes then I say do not hide it and do not put a basket over it, but allow the glory of My presence in you to shine forth to a lost and a dying generation. Be encouraged, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 12/6/2010:

I had a vision of a chess game between God and Satan.  I didn’t see their bodies; I only saw their hands playing chess. I know that the chess board is the body of Christ and that, like Job, we are caught in a battle between good and evil.  He had a choice and so do we about how to react to our circumstances, but if Job had known that he was caught in a battle he would have sought God right away.  We know we are caught in a battle so we need to seek the Lord right away.  I heard the Lord say that He is moving on hearts in a deep and profound way to draw us to Himself to choose Him and Him alone.  And it is a deep and abiding work.  But as long as we keep focused on our own issues, the issues of life, He can’t do the work.  As soon as we let God have His way in this war, He wins, and we win.  But we have to get our focus back on the Lord.  He is wooing us to Himself.  He’s calling us back to a position of faith and hope and strength in Him.
