Watch For And Take Advantage Of Opportunities To Defeat A Haughty Spirit

It’s All About Jesus!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Watch for and take advantage of opportunities to defeat a haughty spirit. These opportunities will come suddenly in various situations and circumstances, but you can quite easily gain the victory by clothing yourself with humility. For indeed, I give grace to the humble, says the Lord. I will empower you to defuse explosive situations by manifesting the fruit of the Spirit. The haughty spirit is a weapon and even a stronghold formed against you, but the weapons I have given you are more subtle and powerful.

2 Corinthians 10:4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds.

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.

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

It’s All About Jesus!

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.

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 49.  Thank You Jesus!

My Representatives and Ambassadors Must Be Trustworthy And Believable

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin  

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 5/26/11:

Pride has no credibility and does not represent My kingdom in truth. Prepare to receive correction that will place you in a position of strength through humility. My representatives and ambassadors must be trustworthy and believable before they can usher anyone into the eternal kingdom. The call of duty has gone forth, and I am mustering My troops under the banner of the humble heart. Those who hear My call will come forth under that banner, says the Lord of Hosts.

Proverbs 22:4 By humility and the fear of the LORD are riches and honor and life.

One may have missed one’s prayer time with the Lord.  One may have been up yet, one may have continued to speak on the phone with an individual.  Lord, please forgive one for putting one’s conversation and issues first, in Jesus’ name.  After 4:40 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 Luke 6 – The disciples pick corn on the Sabbath.  One may believe that the Lord may be teaching one to love one’s enemies.  Thank You Jesus!

You Belong to Me And Are My Chosen

You are My anointed, and I have raised you up to do all that is in My heart and in My mind. Your faithfulness goes before you in the spiritual realm to establish the way of favor. Hindrances have to give way to the light of those who walk upright and go forth with integrity and humility. You belong to Me and are My chosen, says the Lord.

Psalms 84:5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, whose heart is set on pilgrimage.

It Is Vital In This Season That You Draw Near To Me

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — January 22, 2010:

In these days your decisions will take on greater significance, and your choices will be as seeds sown that will produce a harvest of greater magnitude than you have previously ever experienced. It is, therefore, to your advantage to choose according to My wisdom. It is vital in this season that you draw near to Me, that you walk in truth and humility, and that you exercise the utmost integrity in all that you think, say, and do, says the Lord. Ask for wisdom, and be wise!

Proverbs 4:7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding.

One may have left one’s cell phone in the bathroom.  One thought to get the phone before dozing off.  One may have decided against it and thought that the alarm would be loud enough to wake one for one’s special time with Jesus.

One may have been awakened by the sound of the alarm going off.  One may have lain there for a while thinking that it was around 3:20 AM. One may have gotten up eventually.  One may have been late meaning one had not heard the initial alarm.

One quickly checked the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today and may have been encouraged.  It may have been 3:52 AM when one entered one’s prayer closet.

One may have begun with songs of praise to the Lord.  One may have confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed to the Lord for the passage of scripture for the day.

Today as one may be writing this blog a day late.  One could not remember the passage of scripture for yesterday.  One wondered if the Lord would answer one being that one did not get one’s blog posted on time.

One may have prayed to the Lord to help one remember the passage of scripture for yesterday and Jeremiah 18 came to one’s mind.  One wondered if it was one’s own imagination.  One may have gotten a quick flash of some of the contents of the chosen passage of scripture for the day and what it was about.  One thought, “Oh yeah!”  One may have been encouraged.  Then one may have wondered if the flashback could be from another passage of scripture one had read recently.

One checked one’s blogs to see if one had remembered the scripture from a recent post.  One may have opened one’s Bible to the chapter 18 in the Book of Jeremiah and began to read the scripture.  It may not have been familiar.  One may have known that this was not the passage of scripture the Lord had chosen.

One began to flip back chapter by chapter, reading the first verse only, in the Book of Jeremiah.  One may have known that these chapter were not the one.  One may have thought to stop flipping backwards and check chapter 19.  One may have turned to Jeremiah 19 and began to read it.  “That’s It!”  The Lord led one back to the passage of scripture He had chosen for the day.  Thank you Jesus!  Thank you for showing one mercy and grace.  One may predate this blog so that it will show up under Friday’s date.

At 4:52 AM yesterday morning one may have left one’s prayer closet.  One may have logged onto the site to pray for outstanding prayer requests.

Thank you Lord Jesus for answering each prayer request according to your perfect will.  Thank you Lord for your leading and loving kindness, in Jesus’ name, amen.
