Actively Take Control Of Your Mind And Do Not Allow Negative Thoughts Or Emotions To Rule!

It’s All About Jesus!

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

Beloved, refuse to allow your emotional responses to circumstances make you feel like you are losing ground. Discouragement will disable you and keep you bound by infirmity, making you feel like a victim. But, I have given you power and authority to break free and stay free from everything that would hold you, says the Lord. Actively take control of your mind, and do not allow negative thoughts or emotions to rule.

2 Corinthians 10:4-6 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.

One may have awakened early in the morning after 1:00 AM and may have done some writing.  One may have laid back down for a quick nap before one’s prayer closet time.  Around 3:25 AM one may have logged onto one’s computer to check the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  One may have been encouraged by today’s message.

At 3:30 AM one may have entered one’s prayer closet.  One may have sung praises to Lord and began to pour one’s heart out to Jesus.  Right in the midst of one’s outpouring, one broke out into praise with a song.  One may have been so glad, grateful and thankful that Jesus was a very present help.

One may have confessed one’s sins and thanked the Lord. One may not remember praying for a passage of scripture for today.  One may have prayed (as one may have been writing this afternoon) asking the Lord to help one remember, nothing came to one.  Usually, if one forgets the passage of scripture for the day, the Holy Spirit will bring it back to one.

One may have left one’s prayed closet around 4:30 AM.  One may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Lord, thank you for hearing and answering each prayer request according to your perfect will, in Jesus’ name, amen.

One may want to thank God right now for His goodness.  Yesterday one may have been at an all time low.  One may have anticipated certain events taking place and thought that they could not be changed.  Well Jesus has done just that.  He may have come to one’s rescue and changed some major issues.  Thank you Jesus!

One may have asked the Lord why a certain event could not take place another way. This very question that one may have posed may have been the Lord’s answer to a major concern.  Wow!  One may Hope this means that one may have the mind of Christ.  Lol!  One may be going through, yet, obstacles may be falling by the wayside.  Thank you Jesus!

One may have gotten great news yesterday afternoon concerning an issue that may have been going on for more than a year.  Another hurdle cleared.  Thank you Jesus!

Some things one may not know how they will unfold.  One must trust the Lord and this may be the hardest thing for one to do right now.  One may not know how the blessings or help will come.  One may keep one’s spiritual eyes and ears open.

There may be major decisions that may take place in the near future.  Lord, please lead and guide one and one’s family every step of the way, in Jesus’ name one may pray, amen.

You Will Come Through In Victory If You Will Stand Unwavering In Hope and Faith, Says The Lord

January 6, 2010:

The enemy has unleashed a whirlwind of confusion consisting of fear, infirmity and heaviness. He will do what he can to discourage and demoralize you. But, I say to you, resist the temptation to dump down into hopelessness or despair. Be calm and ride the wave of My strength that will take you through this barrage of attacks. You will come through in victory if you will stand unwavering in hope and faith, says the Lord.

2 Corinthians 2:14 Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.

One may have awakened this morning and read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  One may have thought how one may have felt so discouraged recently.  One may have felt a boatload of fear about upcoming events in one’s life.  One may know that Jesus is in control.  One may be grateful for the help and encouragement from the Lord.

One may wonder how the Lord will deal with circumstances that will arise soon in one’s life.  These circumstances must come to pass they cannot be avoided. Jesus may orchestrate these changes and one may look to Him for getting one through and carrying one in this new direction and destiny.

One may have sat at one’s computer, browsing, just a little too long this morning.  One may have checked the time; one may have been a few minutes late for one’s prayer closet.  One may have jumped up from the computer and hurried into one’s prayer closet.  One did not have any excuse for being late.  Please forgive one Lord, in Jesus’ name, one may pray, amen.

One may have praised the Lord with song.  One may have confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord, prayed for the sick and prayed for the scripture for today.  One stood and held one head and Bible towards the highest heavens (3rd. Heaven) and prayed for the Lord to give one the scripture for today.  One may have opened one’s Bible and one’s eyes fell on Isaiah 29.  One may have flipped the page and one’s eyes fell on Isaiah 30.

One may have left one’s prayer closet and logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.

Lord Jesus, thank you for answering one’s prayers and the prayers of those who may have left prayer requests at this particular website.  Lord, one may pray that your perfect will be done concerning one’s prayers, in Jesus’ name, one may pray, amen.
