Simply Be What I Have Created You To Be And Surrender Completely To My Purposes In And Through You

It’s All About Jesus!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

I speak to multitudes when I tell you that your quest for attention and recognition is simply selfish ambition as you seek to express yourself in unique ways. But, My purpose for you is that you become a vessel through whom the expression of My Spirit can flow, unhindered by your flesh. You do not have to clamor and strive for position or compare yourself with others. Simply be what I have created you to be and surrender completely to My purposes in and through you. Even if you happen to acquire the attention you think you need, it is still empty and vain. Establish yourself in secret communion with Me, says the Lord.

John 7:4a “For no one does anything in secret while he himself seeks to be known openly.”

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 the sick.

One may have prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have been led to Psalm 14 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Thank You Jesus!

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, Amen.

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.

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 John 14 – The way, the truth, the life.  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.

Don’t Be Afraid To Forge Ahead, But Be Diligent To Discern What Is Of Me, Or Of The Flesh

It’s All About Jesus!

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

I am releasing a new wave of possibilities as I fling open the doors of hope. This is a time when you can hatch new ideas and creative ways to remove the clogs in expression and progression. If you will seek expansion through My Spirit, you will begin to move in a new flow of freedom. Don’t be afraid to forge ahead, but also be diligent to discern what is of Me, or of the flesh. Your spirit will bear witness to My Spirit, says the Lord.

Hebrews 5:14 But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

One may have awakened to the sound of the 3:20 AM alarm chimming from one’s cell phone.  One may have selected the snooze option.  The alarm may have gone off again at 3:25 AM.  One may have selected the snooze option again.

One may have lain in bed for a while and may have continued to rest.  One may have felt led to check the time.  It may have been exactly 3:30 AM.  One may have jumped up and may have entered one’s prayer closet immediately.

The third alarm may not have gone off.  One may believe that one may have selected “Dismiss” instead of “Snooze” and may have canceled the alarm.

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 Matthew 23.  Thank You Jesus!

One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may remember being encouraged and may have thought that the message may have been a direct warning for one.  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.
