Prepare To Go Higher On The Narrow Path Ahead

It’s All About Jesus!


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

In a vision I saw myself putting on a pair of hiking boots, and I believe the Lord was showing me that we need to prepare to go higher on the narrow path ahead of us. We are making our way up to the spiritual high places where we can have greater discernment, see with clarity and hear with precision. The hike will require our desire for more of Him and our willingness to maintain eternal perspective.

Matthew 7:13-14 Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.

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 Matthew 3.  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 this morning.  One may have been very encouraged.  Thank You Jesus!

Refuse To Allow The Attacks Of The Enemy To Bring Discouragement

It’s All About Jesus!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Sept. 24, 2010:

As things unfold before you, take nothing for granted. Recognize divine providence. These are days when you can see purpose in what has taken place in your circumstances as a reference point to where you are going. Refuse to allow the attacks of the enemy to bring discouragement. Let Me establish you in greater discernment and vision as I open your eyes and heart to view your choices and possibilities, says the Lord.

2 Peter 1:2-4 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

One may have awakened to the sound of the alarm.  One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have pondered over the scripture given today for a while.  One may have been encouraged.  Thank You Jesus!

One may have entered one’s prayer closet before the appointed time.  One may have decided to leave briefly.  When one may have returned, it may have been 3:32 AM. One may have been late for one’s special time with Jesus.  One may have been amazed at how quickly the time may passed by; one may have thought to have gone for just a moment.  One may have been discouraged and upset.

One may have praised the Lord with song, confessed one’s sins (including being late for one’s prayer time and for one’s anger), thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today.  One may have been led to Daniel 4.  Thank You Jesus!

One may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Lord, thank You for answering each prayer request according to Your perfect will, in Jesus’ name.  Amen.

You Cannot Hear When You Are In Any Kind Of Sin

It’s All About Jesus!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — April 15, 2010:

I hear the cries of those who desire to have greater discernment and to hear My voice more clearly. And, I tell you, beloved, that it is not only desirable, but it is also possible. All you have to do is to clear your soul of all darkness so that only light and good and truth exist. You cannot hear clearly when you are conflicted or double-minded. You cannot hear when you are offended, critical or judgmental. You cannot hear when you are in any kind of sin. Return to Me, says the Lord, and be done with the works of the flesh and all darkness and let My light shine forth, says the Lord.

2 Corinthians 4:6 For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

One may have awakened this morning and read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have thought that one may be guilty of each of these sins throughout one’s day.  Wow!  Wake up call!  Thank you Jesus!

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 3:30 AM.  By 3:38 AM, one’s dog may have been crying to go outside.  One may hate going out into the night this time of morning.  One may have taken the dog outside briefly and hurried back.

One may have praised the Lord before going outside.  Upon one’s return 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 Zechariah 9.  Thank you Jesus.

One may logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Thank You Lord Jesus for answering each prayer request according to your perfect will, amen.
