Don’t Lose Your Focus; Be Strong And Resolute, Says The Lord

It’s All About Jesus!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 5/6/11:

I saw in the spirit a whirlwind blowing through bringing a sense of chaos and confusion with it. And, I heard the Lord say: This wind is a test of your endurance. If you give in to the force of the wind, chaos and confusion will dominate. But, if you will stand still and refuse to react to this ill wind, you will find that it will strengthen your inner man. Don’t lose your focus; be strong and resolute, says the Lord.

Exodus 14:13a And Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which He will accomplish for you today.”

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 3:30 AM.  One may have praised the Lord, confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have been led to 2 Chronicles 30 – Hezekiah reinstates the Passover.  Thank You Jesus!

One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have been encouraged.  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.

Resist The Devil, For There Is No Temptation Too Great For You To Overcome

It’s All About Jesus!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Dec. 22, 2009:

Beloved, I have already brought warnings to you to guard your heart with all diligence. Be aware that the enemy is roaring around, looking for those who will get in his most dangerous territory through allowing their emotions to run wild. Guard your thoughts and emotions, and refuse to allow the devil to bring discouragement, disappointment and depression. Rise up and embrace My joy, says the Lord, and be strengthened in your inner man. Draw near to me, and place your hope in My love for you. Resist the devil, for there is no temptation too great for you to overcome.

1 Corinthians 10:13 No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.

One may have awakened early this morning, a little after midnight.  One may have decided to write in one’s daily log.  After finishing one’s writings, one may have prayed and opened one’s Bible to Psalms 146.  One may have continued reading.  One may have read:

One may have noticed that all five psalms began with “Praise ye the LORD.”  One may have been encouraged.

One may have fallen back asleep.  The alarm may have gone off. One reset it for 3:20 AM.  When the alarm blared at 3:20 AM, one may have just laid there for a few minutes.  One may have gotten up and preceded to one’s computer.  Once logged in, one may have noticed that a pop-up window was open indicating that one should choose a network option.  Safari may have been open with a message indicating that it could not connect to the Internet.  One may have closed the pop-up window and Safari.

One proceeded to open Safari the second time.  One may have gotten the same message indicating that it was unable to connect.  The system again prompted one to choose a network for this computer.  One may have tried Firefox as well.  One simply did not have an internet connection.

One may have gone over to check one’s modem and router, both were unplugged.  One may have plugged them in.  One may have thought that one could not enter one’s prayer closet if this situation did not get resolved.  One may have been willing to miss one’s special time with Jesus.

One may have tried to open Safari again.  It may have been unable to connect to the Internet.  One tried to set the network, but the options that were available were not working.  One may have thought, “I have to get this resolved, I have to read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.”

One may have thought to reboot the system and hopefully the desired settings would re-establish themselves.  One may have shut down the PC.  One restarted one’s computer.  Once logged in, one may have clicked on Safari and it may have connected as usual.  Thank you Jesus!

One opened one’s e-mail and read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  One may have done a few other things as well.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet late.  One may have begun to praise the Lord at 3:35 AM with joyful singing.  One may have confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord, and prayed for the sick.  One may have prayed for a passage of scripture.  One may have been led to Psalms 139.  Thank you Jesus!

After leaving one’s prayer closet, one may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Afterwards, one may have thought about how one was willing to miss one’s prayer time for the sake of one’s computer.  One may have wanted the issue resolved right away and felt that one could not do anything until one figured out the problem.

Lord, thanks for the help with the computer.  Lord, please forgive one for getting one’s priorities mixed up by putting one’s computer and routine before you, in Jesus’ name, one may pray, amen.

Be Still In Your Inner Man!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Nov. 11, 2009:

Beloved, there are still things in your life that need to be torn down before the rebuilding process can proceed. When that which seems to be destined for destruction comes on the scene, quickly let go. Don’t try to hang on. Allow for My divine renovation. But, it is also important that you be still in your inner man and discern this work of the Spirit. Refuse to allow emotional investments to cloud your judgment or discernment, says the Lord.

John 7:24 “Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment.”

One may have awakened very early.  One may have written in one’s log about one’s daily events and issues.  One may have gone back to sleep afterwards.

The Alarm may have sounded at 3:00 AM.  One turned it off and reset it for 3:20 AM.  The alarm may have gone off again, one turned it off and continued to lie there until 3:25 AM.

One hurriedly logged onto one’s computer.  One opened one’s e-mail and checked for the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  One read it twice and headed towards the bathroom for one’s special time with the Lord.

One may have arrived on time but was engrossed in thought over events that had occurred the previous day.  When one came to oneself, one checked the time; it may have been 3:32 AM.  Oops, late again.  One may have to stop with getting so engrossed in thought.

One began to sing praises to the Lord.  One confessed one’s sins.  One may have used most of the entire time confessing one’s sins.  One would occasionally talk to the Lord about one’s current issues.   One’s personal issues may be quite challenging and one may consistently seek guidance from the Lord.  Lord, please help one to do that which is right in thy sight, in Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.

At 4:30 AM, one logged onto the site where one may pray for open prayer requests. Thank you Lord Jesus, for this opportunity, in Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.

One may have been led to a website recently.  One may have been clicking on the tags listed on the page of one’s blog for this particular day.  One saw a blog that caught one’s eyes.  One may have clicked from the blog onto the website of the individual and began to explore the page.

One may have quickly learned that the individual was an Evangelist. The individual may have written a new book as well.  One began to watch the videos on the page. One also became a follower of the individual on Twitter.

The individual may have become a follower of one’s as well on November 9, 2009. The individual sent one a direct message offering a free 7-day e-course, “The Fearless Living Challenge” at: One may have clicked the link and signed up for the course.  One may be on day three.

Yesterday, one may have gotten an e-mail about signing up for a free “Beyond Fearless” tele-class hosted by the individual. The Lord had instructed the individual to keep it free. One may have signed up for the free tele-class as well.  It may be held on November 19, 2009.  Click Here to Reserve Your Space!

This morning one may have remembered that one could also download a chapter from the new book “Beyond Fearless” by Ericka D. Jackson.  One may have downloaded the chapter from the book and discovered it was a God send.  Wow!  One may have been really pleased and thought, “This chapter was so awesome!”  Thank you Jesus!  If you are interested in reading the chapter for yourself:  Click Here to Download a FREE Chapter from Ericka’s new book.  May it bless you, truly.

In His undying love and infinite wisdom,
