SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Beloved, refuse to lament over what has already been done or become a victim of the past. Nothing you do will change it or make it better, but you can let it go and launch yourself into this new day that is filled with possibilities and opportunities to know Me better and to understand My kingdom with greater clarity. This is a day to forgive and be forgiven, says the Lord. Draw near to Me!

Philippians 3:13-14 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus

Let There Be No Divisions Among You, My People

It’s All About Jesus!

Let there be no divisions among you, My people. It is My will for you that you live in peace as much as possible. Division has its root in pride, and I would have you not provoke one another or start a fight. I am calling you this day to be humble and to forgive those who have offended you or caused you distress. Let this be a new day and a new season of humility and forgiveness, says the Lord.

Romans 12:18-21 If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. Therefore “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; If he is thirsty, give him a drink; For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Be Still And Discern What It Is That Hinders Your Walk In The Spirit

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Be still and discern what it is that hinders your walk in the Spirit. There are people you must forgive and issues that you have to release in order to be free enough to move in the flow of My Spirit unhindered. But, you must get quiet enough to see and understand how important it is for you to stay clear spiritually, mentally and emotionally. Otherwise, there will be things in the natural realm that will siphon off your physical and spiritual energy. Now is the time to deal with all unrighteousness, says the Lord.

Isaiah 55:7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the LORD, and He will have mercy on him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.

Be Genuine And Deal With Your Relationship Problems In Humility And With Sincerity

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns–01/31/12:

In a vision I saw someone sanding a table until it was smooth, but when the job was done the table was no longer flat or level. The person went ahead and varnished it anyway. I asked the Lord to give me the meaning of the vision, and he showed me that the table represents social unity. Sanding it is the effort to smooth out a rough situation or a relationship. However, it is not level because dissension and insecurity still exist. The varnish indicates that the issue has not been dealt with honestly or with integrity, and the person is just putting up a front. And, the Lord says, you must forgive from your heart. Trying to fake it is hypocrisy and accomplishes nothing. Be genuine and deal with your relationship problems in humility and with sincerity.

Matthew 6:14-15 For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

You Need To Be Free, But You Cannot Attain That Liberty Until You Truly Forgive

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 11/29/11:

Beloved, see to it that you are not harboring any offenses or bitterness in your heart so that there are no divisions among you. Division will hinder your walk with Me and keep you stuck in the flesh instead of walking in the Spirit. You need to be free, but you cannot attain that liberty until you truly forgive and release others. Don’t let another day go by allowing this judgment to stand, says the Lord.

1 Corinthians 3:3 for you are still carnal. For where there are envy, strife, and divisions among you, are you not carnal and behaving like mere men?

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 3:35 AM.  One may have late.  Please forgive one Lord Jesus!

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 Mark 5 – The Healing of a Demon Possessed Man.  Thank You Jesus!

Forgive Quickly And Move On

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin  

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 9/2/11:

Refuse to be offended or take what other people say as a personal attack against you. The enemy would have you respond in ways that will open the door to a greater assault. Forgive quickly and move on. Don’t dwell on the things that have gone wrong, but rather take the time to be thankful. It is of vital importance that you keep your focus on things that really matter, says the Lord.

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 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 Hebrews 10 – Jesus, the final sacrifice.  Thank You Jesus!

Criticism Is A Work Of The Enemy To Get You To Doubt Yourself

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin  

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 7/28/11:

Criticism is a work of the enemy to get you to doubt yourself. When there is something you truly need to know it will come as instruction without accosting your emotions or spirit. If you are criticized you must forgive and release the offense. If you are the one criticizing someone else, you need to turn from that practice and ask to be forgiven. Be at peace as much as possible, and treat one another with respect and kindness, says the Lord.

Galatians 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.

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 Mark 16 – The resurrection of Christ.  Thank You Jesus!

I see those who are feeling rejected and cast aside, but I say to you that I have not rejected you. You are My beloved. You are the apple of My eye. I love you with an everlasting love. I have brought you to Myself for all eternity. Allow Me to touch your heart and heal the wounds of rejection, past and present. Release and forgive those who have been unkind and step into the fullness of My acceptance of you, says the Lord.

Jeremiah 31:3 The LORD has appeared of old to me, saying: “Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.”

Watch For Opportunities To Forgive And Move On When Temptation Arises For Offense

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 3/17/11:

Watch for opportunities to forgive and move on when the temptation arises for offense. You may feel discounted or rejected, but you must not take it as a personal assault. This is the work of the enemy to get you to open the door to sin. These are times when you must return good for evil and stand on righteous ground, says the Lord.

Galatians 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.

One may have felt better this morning.  Thank You Jesus!

One may have begun one’s praise to the Lord at 3:32 AM.  One may have confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have been led to Proverbs 24.  Thank You Jesus!

Now Is The Time To Forgive And Release Everyone Who Has Caused You Pain And Anguish

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 12/31/2010:

You are stepping into a new season of opportunities and possibilities. Now is the time to forgive and release everyone who has caused you pain or anguish. You cannot be free to partake of My blessings when you have bitterness in your heart. Also, release and forgive yourself from all that you have done to perpetrate division, strife and contention, and then you can have the freedom to receive My highest and best in the months ahead, says the Lord.

Matthew 5:22-24 “But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment. And whoever says to his brother, ‘Raca!’ shall be in danger of the council. But whoever says, ‘You fool!’ shall be in danger of hell fire. Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.

One may have prayed for the outstanding prayer requests and a passage of scripture for today’s blog this afternoon.  One may have been led to Isaiah 14.  Thank You Jesus!  Thank You Lord for hearing and answering each prayer request according to Your perfect will, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
