Monitor Your Thoughts, For This Is The Enemy’s Playground

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 4/14/11:

Monitor your thoughts, for this is the enemy’s play ground. The devil will bombard you with the temptation to believe his lies, and if you entertain or believe the lies, he has greater access to your mind and emotions. Always maintain truth to counteract these subtle attacks and refuse to allow him any access. It is truth that will set you free from darkness, says the Lord.

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 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 Psalms 105.  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.

One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have been encouraged.  Thank You Jesus!

You Must Come To A Place Of Trust In Me Before Peace Can Be Restored

It’s All About Jesus!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Sept. 14, 2010:

I had a vision of logs floating down a river and getting jammed up in a narrow place, and the Lord said: Many of you, My people, are finding yourself in a tight spot and instead of continuing in the flow of My Spirit, your emotions are causing you to get jammed up and unable to move. Fear and rejection will have a paralyzing effect on your body and soul. You must come to a place of trust in Me before peace can be restored. Do not be afraid.

Isaiah 41:13 For I, the LORD your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you.’

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — July 2, 2010:

Be alert and pay attention. Expect the unexpected, for I am revealing that which has been hidden and bringing light to dark places. There is a wealth of knowledge and wisdom within your grasp if you will silence your mind and emotions and allow My Spirit to flood your being. Allow Me to bring you to a new, higher level of spiritual understanding and awareness, says the Lord. You will be delighted.

Psalm 24:3 -5 Who may ascend into the hill of the LORD? Or who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

Little by little; little by little, you are overcoming and making progress. Don’t give up. Things may be moving along slower than you anticipated or desired, but you are advancing one step at a time. Discouragement will stop this progression faster than anything, so set a careful watch on your emotions. Be encouraged, says the Lord.

Isaiah 28:10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet.  One may have praised the Lord with song, confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord, prayed for the sick and prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.

One may have totally forgotten the passage of scripture for today and may have prayed to the Lord for help.  The first thing the Lord may have given one may have been the name of the book.  One may have said, “No, that’s not it,” to oneself.

One may have proceeded to write one’s blog for today while hoping that Jesus would bring to one’s remembrance today’s passage of scripture.  As one may have been writing one may have remembered that the passage may have been very short.  One may have also remembered the book.  It may have been the book that the Lord may have given one initially.  One may remember the chapter and well. The passage of scripture for today may be Isaiah 12.  Thank You Jesus!

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

Be Energized By Knowing That You Have The Victory And That No Weapon Formed Against You Will Prosper

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

Don’t allow yourself to get worn down by the tactics of the enemy to wear you out. Stay focused on things of spiritual value, and keep your emotions in check. You can overcome by resisting this attack. Be energized by knowing that you have the victory and that no weapon formed against you will prosper, says the Lord. Be strong.

Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy-meditate on these things.

One may have awakened this morning and may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have been encouraged.  Thank You Jesus!

One may have left one’s room to prepare to enter into one’s prayer closet.  One may have noticed that one’s cat may not have met one as usual.  One may have called out to the cat.  One may have begun to look in closets, under one’s grandson’s bed and anywhere that one may have thought the cat may have been.

One may have checked in one’s daughter’s bedroom, bathroom and the closet that may have been off the bathroom, still no cat.  One may have wondered if one’s cat may have gotten outside.

One may have opened the door and called for the cat.  One’s daughter may have come out of their bedroom and may have said that the cat may have been under their bed.  One may have called to the cat.  It may have followed one out of the room.  One may have fed the cat and gave it water.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet late due to one’s cat dilemma.  One may have praised the Lord with song, confessed one’s sins (including being late for one’s special time with Jesus), thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.

One’s eyes may have fallen on the middle of Jeremiah 31.  Yet, one may have read Jeremiah 32.  This may have been the first actual chapter number one may have seen.  One may have thought to go back and read Jeremiah 31.  One may have come to Jeremiah 31:3 – The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlastinglove: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee. one may have immediately recognized this scripture from a very recent Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  One may believe today’s blog may be Jeremiah 31.  Thank You Jesus!
