SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Watch out for the temptation to take control where you have no responsibility or authority. Situations will arise that are startling and have the potential of throwing you into a tailspin, but you must not react with plans of your own to find solutions or to change things so that you will be more comfortable. You must settle in your heart the fact that things will happen that are beyond your ability to fix. That is when you can ask Me to give wisdom and direction beyond your finite understanding, says the Lord. Trust Me!

James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.

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

One may have prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have been led to Mark 14.  Thank You Jesus!

Remember That Everything Ultimately Works Together For Good

It’s All About Jesus!

It is My desire, says the Lord, that My children stop beating themselves up over perceived shortcomings and failures. More important than the outcome of any situation is that you do the best you can with what you have; that you turn to Me for wisdom, guidance and direction; that your heart belongs to Me. I would have you put your trust completely in Me to fix the things you can’t. Remember that everything ultimately works together for good. You are precious to Me!

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

One may have begun to praise the Lord at 3:30 AM.  One may have confessed one’s sins, prayed for the sick and thanked the Lord.

Boldly Go Forth To Overcome Your Fear Of Failure Or Rejection

It’s All About Jesus!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — June 9, 2010:

Press through the dread and reluctance to face the things that have caused you to be apprehensive. Boldly go forth to overcome your fear of failure or rejection. Avoidance will not fix it or make it go away, so take the next step in moving towards the freedom you desire. Use this time to advance and not retreat. Procrastination is your enemy, says the Lord.

Proverbs 4:23 Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life.

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

One may have begun praising outside of one’s prayer closet.  One may have entered one’s prayer closet soon after one may have begun one’s praise session. One may have confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord, prayed a brief prayer for the sick and prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have been led to Daniel 11.  Thank You Jesus!

Keep Your Eyes Open, Your Discernment Sharp, And Your Heart Willing

It’s All About Jesus!

Now is a time when you can catch up in various ways. You will have opportunities to fix things that have needed to be fixed or adjusted for some time. Also think beyond the natural scheme of things into the realm of your spiritual landscape as things come to light that require correction or adjustment. Again, flexibility is the key to moving through this time victoriously. All you need is to keep your eyes open, your discernment sharp, and your heart willing, says the Lord.

Proverbs 10:17 He who keeps instruction is in the way of life, But he who refuses correction goes astray.

One may have awakened early this morning.  One may have gotten on the computer.  One may have checked the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin just before entering one’s prayer closet.  Again, the message may have hit home and one may have been encouraged.  Thank you Jesus!

One may have entered one’s prayer closet a little before 3:30 AM.  One may have begun to clean the area.  One may have been thinking about many things and then one remembered that it should be time for one to begin praising the Lord.

One may have begun to sing.  One may have confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord, prayed for the sick and prayed for a passage of scripture from the Lord for today.  One may have been led to Psalms 34.  Thank you Jesus.

Maintain Eternal Perspective

It’s All About Jesus!

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.
