Get your priorities in order, and seek My face, says the Lord, and I will give you eternal perspective.

Refuse To Allow Worldly Distractions Or Lusts Of The Flesh To Distract You From My Presence

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

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

Don’t forget who you are in Me, says the Lord. Refuse to allow worldly distractions or lusts of the flesh to distract you from My presence. Keep your eternal perspective, and maintain clear spiritual focus. Your spiritual growth and clarity depend on your measure of self-control. You are on the threshold of spiritual insights and greater understanding of My kingdom, so don’t stop here or go back. Keep pressing on.

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.

I Am With You And I Will Not Forsake You, Says The Lord

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 11/23/2010:

whatever is necessary to maintain spiritual equilibrium. The enemy wants to get you off balance so that you will feel vulnerable and succumb to his lies about you. Make every effort to walk in the Spirit and see your issues and circumstances from an eternal perspective. Don’t take yourself or others too seriously. I am with you, and I will not forsake you, says the Lord. Look to Me for truth.

Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.

Maintain Eternal Perspective

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — February 4, 2010:

Beloved, set a watch for opposition and division. Regardless of where it pops up or the reasons behind it or the justifications for it, it is still the work of the enemy. You can’t fix anything or work through anything in the flesh or by human reason. This must be done in the realm of the spirit by the Holy Spirit and maintaining godly focus. Remind yourself of My purposes, My work, and My promises, says the Lord. Maintain eternal perspective, which is to look beyond what is immediate and temporary to that which is eternal.

Colossians 3:2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.

One may have checked the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin and may have received the message and it’s warning from the Lord.  One may have purposed in one’s heart to try to remember the Lord’s warning throughout the day.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet on time and began to praise the Lord at 3:30 AM.  One may have prayed to the Lord for His help.  Things may be most difficult in one’s life and one may not have seen the outcome coming on the horizon.

Later today some things may have happened that may have increased one’s faith and hope concerning events that may take place in the near future.  One must demonstrate tremendous faith at this point and trust that Jesus is busy doing and preparing one’s way.  Thank you Jesus.

One may have confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today.  The Lord may have led one to Ezekiel 42.  One may have pondered in one’s heart, the Lord’s choice of scripture.  Thank you Jesus for the scripture for today.

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

Hold What You Value With An Open Hand!

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Nov. 6, 2009:

Hold what you value with an open hand. If you try to possess it with a firm grasp, it will slip through your fingers. The earth is Mine and all that is in it, says the Lord. You cannot own what does not belong to you, and I continue to establish the concept of stewardship and not ownership in the hearts of My people. You, beloved, are only sojourners on the earth, not permanent residents. Your earthly existence is but for a moment. Keep eternal perspective. Let go, and yield to the work and moving of My Spirit.

Psalms 84:5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, whose heart is set on pilgrimage.

One may have awakened this morning.  One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  One may have thought, “What things may one hold tightly?”  Lord Jesus, please help one to surrender and sacrifice all things to you, in Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.

One may have gone into the bathroom.  One began praising by song at 3:30 AM.  One confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord, prayed for the sick and prayed in tongues.  One may have begun to get sleepy during the last 15 minutes of one’s special time with Jesus.

At 4:30 AM, one may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  One may have been tired and had to fight through the tiredness.

Today, one’s son may have gotten married!  One may have had an awesome day!  Thank you Jesus!
