SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Oct. 1, 2010:

Sharpen your discernment to see the tactics of the enemy to manifest his will in your surroundings, and do not be dissuaded by his lies. Rather stand in the truth of My Word and be strengthened by the goodness of My thoughts and intentions toward you. You must choose to be strong in Me and in the power of My might as the enemy goes about like a roaring lion seeking an opportunity to devour you, says the Lord. I go before you and am also your rear guard.

Isaiah 52:12 For you shall not go out with haste, nor go by flight; for the LORD will go before you, and the God of Israel will be your rear guard.

One may have awakened to the sound of one’s alarm.  One may have been half asleep and thought it to be the phone ringing.  After a few moments may have passed, one may have come to oneself.  One may have looked at the time and it may have been 3:32 AM.  One may have been late for one’s prayer time with Jesus.

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

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 3:43 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 Matthew 27.  Thank You Jesus!

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

Beloved, I Am Separating The Precious From The Vile So That You Can Draw Closer To Me

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — August 13, 2010:

Beloved, I am separating the precious from the vile so that you can draw closer to Me. This will manifest on all levels of your experience as you are now able to discern what you need to keep and what you need to let go of. This process will result in greater simplicity and focus. Don’t be afraid to remove that which is no longer relevant. I am with you to give wisdom and help you in this time of sorting, says the Lord.

Jeremiah 15:19 Therefore thus says the LORD: “If you return, then I will bring you back; you shall stand before Me; if you take out the precious from the vile, you shall be as My mouth.”

One may have awakened early this morning.  One may have been listening to something that one may have been working on.  One may have decided to put on one’s headphones and may have discovered that they may have been broken by one of one’s grandchildren.

One may have felt angry and discouraged.  One may have thought that a particular child may have done the dastardly deed.  One may have heard the Lord speaking to one concerning one’s accusations and the Lord may have suggested that it could have been a different child.  One may have calmed down after a while.  Thank You Jesus.

One may have heard the sound of the bell from one’s e-mail account at 3:04 AM.  One may have checked for the Spirit Of Prophecy Bulletin.  As one may have read the message for today, 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, prayed briefly for the sick and prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have been led to Matthew 2.  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.

Later this morning, one of the children may have confessed to breaking the headphones.  It may not have been the child that one may have thought to have broken them.  Thank You Jesus!
