You Do Not Belong To Yourself; You Belong To Me

It’s All About Jesus!


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

What you might see as the winds of adversity, are really spiritual opportunities to exercise your faith and to overcome.  So, I say, rise up and take advantage of every situation to prove My existence and power in your life.  You do not belong to yourself; you belong to Me, says the Lord, and I have given authority to those who are Mine.  I have already gained the victory over Satan’s kingdom so that your victory is assured in all things.

1 John 5:4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world-our faith.

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 Psalms 89.  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 for today.  One may have been encouraged.  Thank You Jesus!

Seek To Glorify Me

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 1/20/11:

Hush. Be still and stop fretting. Worry will get you nowhere. If you will be quiet and rise up in the Spirit, I will give you peace and bring healing and restoration to your troubled soul. When you are in turmoil it is because you have lost focus, paying more attention to situations that concern you rather than trusting Me, says the Lord. For those who have asked to see My glory, you will not see My glory until you continually give Me honor in all things. My glory will be revealed to those who seek to glorify Me.

Psalms 131:2 Surely I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a weaned child with his mother; like a weaned child is my soul within me.

One may have awakened this morning.  The Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin may not have been in one’s e-mail inbox.  One may believe that the time that one may receive the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin may have changed.  One may have thought to change one’s prayer time.  One may have decided against 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 Isaiah 9.  Thank You Jesus!

One may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests after leaving one’s prayer closet.  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 later this morning.  One may have been encouraged.  Thank You Jesus!

Refuse To Waver Through Fear And Unbelief

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 12/17/2010:

Maintain strong faith, and keep moving forward taking one step at a time in the strength and power of My guidance. I will not lead you astray, but like an arrow shot from a bronze bow you will hit the mark and achieve the goal. Refuse to waver through fear and unbelief. Trust Me in all things, says the Lord, for I will direct your steps on a straight and narrow path.

Isaiah 42:16 I will bring the blind by a way they did not know; I will lead them in paths they have not known. I will make darkness light before them, and crooked places straight. These things I will do for them, and not forsake them.

One may have awakened this morning and may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  One 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’s blog.  One may have been led one to Song of Solomon 8.  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.
