Refuse To Allow Discouragement And Confusion To Cloud Your Vision

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 12/28/2010:

Refuse to allow discouragement and confusion to cloud your vision. The temptation will be to sink down into a place of lethargy that will border on hopelessness. But, I tell you honestly that the enemy is provoking you to believe lies that have the potential of disabling your spiritual progress. Don’t believe him, but rather push through this shroud of darkness until you can once again see the light of truth, says the Lord.

John 8:32 “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

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

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 1 Kings 22.  Thank You Jesus!

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

Be Strong And Do Not Lose Heart

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 11/16/2010:

Be strong and do not lose heart. Refuse to give up. The enemy would have you to believe in hopelessness, but he will not succeed as long as you maintain your position of hope. Give him no ground. Take the time and make the effort to exercise your faith and to believe Me and know that I have heard your prayers, says the Lord.

2 Corinthians 4:17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.

One may have awakened early this morning and may have felt discouraged.  One may have heard a voice that may have said that one should stop going into one’s prayer closet and that one should stop posting on one’s blog and on Facebook and Twitter.  One may have dismissed the thoughts.

One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have been encouraged.  The message from the Lord today may have spoken to one’s heart.  Thank You 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 Job 1.  Thank You Jesus!

You Must Turn Back The Battle At The Gate

It’s All About Jesus!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — May 5, 2010:

Beloved, you must turn back the battle at the gate — stop the enemy’s entrance and defeat him at the first sign of fear, discouragement, disappointment, or hopelessness. You will be tempted by negative emotions on many levels, but you must refuse to allow them to take control or overwhelm you in any way. I will strengthen you to overcome as you rise up and take a stand against these attacks, says the Lord.

Ephesians 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.

Isaiah 28:6b … for strength to those who turn back the battle at the gate.

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

One may have entered one’s prayer closet.  One may have praised the Lord with song, confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for one’s blog today.  One may have been led to Ezekiel 27.

One may have paused before writing the previous sentence.  One may have grabbed one’s Bible.  One may not have remembered the scripture for today.  One may have asked the Lord for help.

One may have been led to a passage of scripture that one may have been looking at earlier today in 1 kings.  This may not have been the chosen passage of scripture for today’s blog.  The Holy Spirit may have simply brought the name of the book back to one, then the chapter.  Thank You Jesus and Holy Spirit for your help.

I Will Raise Up The Spirit Of Elijah In Those Who Are Willing

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — March 30, 2010:

It is written that the Spirit of Elijah must come and fulfill all things. And, so in these days I will raise up the spirit of Elijah in those who are willing; even as I did in John the Baptist, that the world and My people might see that there is a God who is alive; a God Who rules from heaven. And through the power of the demonstration of the gospel, a fullness of the restoration of My kingdom will come to the earth and be found among My people. Dare to believe that I can use you in such a manner, for have you not been in the wilderness? Have I not kept you even in dry places? Have I not revealed Myself to you? But now is the season of your coming out. Now is the season of your coming forth. Now is the time that you come out of the wilderness in strength and power. Remember these words that I am speaking to you because it is from the wilderness that you come into the glory and into the promised land, says the Lord God Most Holy.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — March 30, 2010:

Come out from the darkness that has kept you from realizing, enjoying, and demonstrating kingdom life. There has even been deep darkness and a sense of failure and hopelessness for many, but I have made a way for you to come forth in the power of My Spirit. You must truly let go of the past and leave behind all things that have wounded or debilitated you. Now is the time. Come forth, says the Lord.

Philippians 3:13 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.

It may be 9:17 PM and one may have just read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today. One may be encouraged.  Thank you Jesus.  One may have hooked up one’s computer moments ago to complete one’s blog for today.

One’s Internet service may be up and running again.  Thank you Jesus!  One may have been told yesterday by the customer service representative for one’s internet service that the order for a new modem would take a couple of days to be processed and that once shipped it would take seven to ten business days to be delivered.

One may have called later and spoke to a different customer service representative.  One may have discovered that the shipping had been charged to one.  One may have asked the individual a question, “Do you think that the shipping should be charge to me?”  The customer service representative may have put one on hold.  When they came back, they may have told one that they were reversing the charge and that one would see the reversal in one’s next bill.

An e-mail may have been sent to one’s daughter while one may have been writing one’s blog yesterday, indicating that the modem had been shipped.

The modem may have been in Charlotte, NC this morning and delivered to one a little after 12:50 PM.  Thank you Jesus!

Hopefully, one’s prayer time with Jesus will return to normal now that the Internet service may have been restored.

One may have missed one’s prayer closet time due to exhaustion.  One may not have heard the alarm.  One may have attempted to pray after 6:00 AM.  One may have been distracted and never completed one’s confessions through out the day.  Please forgive one Lord, in Jesus’ name, one may pray, amen.
