Remember That I Have Given You Authority And Power To Overcome

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 1/21/11:

Stir yourself up in your most holy faith. Push back the darkness that tries to encroach and violate your boundaries and the rights of your covenant with Me, says the Lord. Refuse the attacks of the enemy, which are designed to bring you down in oppression and reproach. Let your light shine so that the darkness is dispelled and the devil has no place in you. Remember that I have given you authority and power to overcome.

Jude 20-21: But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

Stand Your Ground And Protect The Seed, Which Is My Word And My Promises Sown In Your Heart

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 1/07/2011:

Set a watch, and refuse to allow your thoughts to take you down the path that leads to discouragement and despair. The enemy desires to steal your faith and expectation of My goodness, says the Lord. But, you must stand your ground and protect the seed, which is My word and My promises sown in your heart. Take care of of your inheritance, and be a good steward of what you’ve been given and what you’ve been given to do.

Luke 8:15 But the ones that fell on the good ground are those who, having heard the word with a noble and good heart, keep it and bear fruit with patience.

One may have heard the alarm go off several times this morning.  One may have thought that it was the 6:00 AM alarm and that one did not have to get up right then.  The alarm may have begun to blare once again.  One may have decided to turn it off.  One may have noticed the time.  It may have been 3:40 AM.  One may have been late for one’s special time with Jesus.

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

One may have entered one’s prayer closet.  One may have praised the Lord with song, confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today.  One may have been led to Jeremiah 9.  Thank You Jesus!

Don’t Be Afraid To Let Go And Be Released From Things That Represent Bondage To You

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 12/30/2010:

Many of you, My people, have been trying to rescue things of the past that are no longer working or relevant to your life. It’s been like trying to rescue a drowning man tied to an anchor; it is not going to work, and has the possibility of taking you down as well. Don’t be afraid to let go and be released from things that represent bondage to you, says the Lord. It is time for you to be free and to celebrate liberty!

Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.

One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for this morning and may have been encouraged.  Thank You 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.  One may have been led to Habakkuk 1.  Thank You Jesus!

Refuse To Look At What You Don’t Have Instead Of Being Grateful For What You Do Have

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 11/25/2010:

Beloved, this is a time when you must refrain from comparing yourself to others. The enemy’s desire is to tempt you to open a door for his access by focusing on your lack. Refuse to look at what you don’t have instead of being grateful for what you do have. This is a snare and a trap that will take you down to the pit of discouragement and depression. Keep looking up, says the Lord.

2 Corinthians 10:12 For we dare not class ourselves or compare ourselves with those who commend themselves. But they, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.

One may have awakened early.  One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have thought about the word “pit” and may have been disturbed by the Lord’s choice of words.  “Pit” may refer to hell.  One may have thought that one may need to make a quick attitude change in one’s behavior lately.  One may take heed and  have been encouraged.

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 Isaiah 48.  Thank You Jesus!

I Am The Lord Who Gives Life; I Give This Life To You In Abundance

It’s All About Jesus!


THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — 11/8/2010:

I am the Lord Who gives you life; I give this life to you in abundance.  And, with this life comes the living waters.  Will you not drink?  And with this life comes the hidden manna.  Will you not eat?  For when you drink of My water and when you eat of My manna you are strengthened.  Wisdom will come to you.  Joy will be yours, and you will possess peace.  I say these are gifts that I give unto My people. These things I have promised and these things I now give.  So receive and allow your faith to function.  For when you touch the hem of My garment you will have that which you have asked for, that which you have sought for, and that for which you have knocked upon the door of My heart. So I say come, come now and receive of that which I give, says the Lord God.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 11/8/2010:

I saw what seemed like a solid rock wall, and as I pondered this looming obstacle, I realized that each time I experienced a small victory and expressed my joy pieces of the wall turned to dust and fell to the ground. The more I rejoiced, the more victories I achieved, and the more the wall fell down until finally the wall that once stopped my forward progress was only dirt under my feet.

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.

Come Up Here And Let Me Reveal Spiritual Truth Through My Life-Giving Spirit, Say The Lord

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — August 18, 2010:

If you are going to come higher and stand with Me on that high plateau of revelation, you must release everything that anchors you to the world. Let go of everything that holds you down. Be done with the fear of man, fear of loss and failure, and carnal desires. Rise up! Come up here and let Me reveal spiritual truth through My life-giving Spirit, says the Lord. You will be delighted and thrilled as you experience true liberty.

Acts 26:16 But rise and stand on your feet; for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to make you a minister and a witness both of the things which you have seen and of the things which I will yet reveal to you.

One may have awakened to the sound of one’s alarm.  One may have checked the time; it may have been 3:30 AM.  One may have dashed to one’s prayer closet and may have begun to praise the Lord.  One may have been so tired; one may have had a late night.  One may have been glad that one may not have been late for one’s special time with Jesus.

After praising the Lord one may have left one’s prayer closet to read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have been encouraged.  Thank You Jesus!

One may have grabbed a few necessary items, fed the cat and may have headed back to one’s prayer closet.

One may have confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord, prayed briefly for the sick and one may have prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have been led to Luke 15.

With a smile on one’s face, one may have said aloud, “Lord, you have got to be kidding,” yesterday’s passage of scripture may have been Luke 14.  One may have read today’s passage of scripture.

As one may have been exiting one’s prayer closet, one may have smiled again at the thought of God’s choice for today’s passage of scripture.  Thank You Jesus!

One may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Thank You Lord for answering each prayer request according to Your perfect will, in Jesus’ name, amen.
