SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Be aware, beloved, that a haughty spirit is trying to find an inroad that could cause you to stumble.  It will try to find a way in through misunderstanding and offense.  But, you are well able to discover it and avert its purpose, which is to divide and conquer.  Stay alert to the possibilities because you know that pride goes before a fall and a haughty spirit before destruction.  These are not results that you want to endure.  Stay ahead of this one, and you will be strengthened, says the Lord.

Proverbs 15:1 A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.

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.

I’m Calling You, My People, To Remove The Garbage And Take Out The Trash

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin  

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 8/24/11:

I’m calling you, My people, to remove the garbage and take out the trash. But, I am speaking to you spiritually that you must consider and remove whatever has been an offense to your spirit and caused defilement of your spiritual environment. Look for attitudes and motivations that are not pleasing in My sight, says the Lord, and make adjustments where necessary. I will guide you in this process, for it is My desire to lead you to complete freedom from bitterness and ungodliness. I am speaking to you, beloved. Don’t ignore your responsibility to look at yourself and not others in this regard.

Ephesians 4:17-24 This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind, having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart; who, being past feeling, have given themselves over to lewdness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. But you have not so learned Christ, if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus: that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.

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.  One may have been led to 2 Kings 25 The fall of Jerusalem.  Thank You Jesus!

Watch For Opportunities To Forgive And Move On When Temptation Arises For Offense

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 3/17/11:

Watch for opportunities to forgive and move on when the temptation arises for offense. You may feel discounted or rejected, but you must not take it as a personal assault. This is the work of the enemy to get you to open the door to sin. These are times when you must return good for evil and stand on righteous ground, says the Lord.

Galatians 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.

One may have felt better this morning.  Thank You Jesus!

One may have begun one’s praise to the Lord at 3:32 AM.  One may have confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have been led to Proverbs 24.  Thank You Jesus!

Decisions await on every level — your attitudes and responses, whether or not to take an offense, financial decisions and stewardship, not to mention deciding the most productive way to spend your time and energy. Be sensitive to the choices you have before you and always choose what brings peace and life. If you ask for wisdom, I will give it and show you to best way, says the Lord. Walk in the Spirit.

Philippians 4:7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus..

I Am A God Of Mercy, And I Show Mercy To The Merciful

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — July 27, 2010:

Old places of conflict will require new resolution, but I will cause you to move through it with grace if you determine to forgive every offense old or new. This is not a time to become outraged or renew old grudges. You’ve heard it said that a soft answer turns away wrath, and that is indeed the truth. I am a God of mercy, and I show mercy to the merciful, says the Lord.

Psalm 18:24-28 Therefore the LORD has recompensed me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in His sight . With the merciful You will show Yourself merciful; with a blameless man You will show Yourself blameless; with the pure You will show Yourself pure; and with the devious You will show Yourself shrewd. For You will save the humble people, but will bring down haughty looks. For You will light my lamp; the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness.

I Am Making The Rough Places Smooth And The Crooked Places Straight

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — June 11, 2010:

I am making the rough places smooth and the crooked places straight by taking the stumbling block out of your way. This is what keeps you from progression. It is your disobedience to My Word and your rebellion against My precepts. I am going to make the offense very clear to you in the days ahead so that you can make a choice whether or not to cooperate with My work in your life. If you choose to work with Me in these areas of correction, you will be delighted with the liberty that comes as a result, says the Lord.

Jude 24-25 Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, God our Savior, Who alone is wise, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever. Amen.

One’s daughter may have awakened one this morning.  One’s daughter may have said that they may have heard one’s alarm going off.  Thank You Jesus!

You Must Forgive Every Offense From Your Heart

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — January 19, 2010:

Before you can move one inch on the path of destiny, you must forgive every offense from your heart. Remember and practice My word, “And just as you want men to do to you, you also do to them likewise.” I will give unique opportunities to each of you, My people, to be established in these sayings of Mine, for I will have a unified Body–a Church that is blameless and without spot or blemish. Surrender to the work of My Spirit in the deepest recesses of your heart. Your spiritual life depends on it, says the Lord.

Matthew 18:34-35 “And his master was angry, and delivered him to the torturers until he should pay all that was due to him. So My heavenly Father also will do to you if each of you, from his heart, does not forgive his brother his trespasses.”

One may have awakened and did some writing after 1:00 AM this morning. As the time neared 3:00 AM, one quickly finished one’s writings and attempted to go back to sleep before one’s special time with Jesus at 3:30 AM.

One may have thought, “Check your phone, it might be dead and if so you may oversleep.”  One answered the thought with a thought, “I don’t even know where my cell phone is.” One dismissed the thought.  One may have been too tired to get up and besides one was wrapped perfectly in one’s blankets.

One may have been awakened by noise coming from the kitchen area.  One may have asked the individual the time.  It may have been 4:12 AM.  One may have overslept. Upon getting up, one may have looked for one’s phone.  One may have found it on the computer desk and it may have been totally dead.  Wow!  Hindsight being 20/20, one may believe the Holy Spirit may have been warning one.

One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have been encouraged.  One headed to one’s prayer closet.  One may have entered a little before 4:30 AM.

One may have started out by apologizing to the Lord for oversleeping and asking for His forgiveness.  One began to sing songs of praise to the Lord.  One may have confessed one’s sins and prayed for a passage of scripture for today.  One may have been led to Ezra 8.  Thank you Jesus!

One may have left one’s prayer closet and logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  One may have been really encouraged about praying for those who may need prayer.  One may know that the Lord answers these prayers.

Recently, one may have been led to review the praise reports from this particular website.  One may have waited days before finally giving into this gentle nudging.

While viewing the praise reports, one may have read a testimony that mirrored a specific prayer that one prayed.  What one asked for in this prayer may have been for the Lord to give the individual a new heart.

The praise report stated that the doctors said the individual had received a new heart, a heart of a sixteen year old and the new heart should last for another twenty years; surgery was no longer needed.

The individual giving the praise report thanked the prayer warriors for their prayers.  Hallelujah!  One may believe that the Lord wanted one to know that the prayer had been answered.  Thank you Jesus!

Lord one may thank you for answering each prayer request according to your perfect will and for being so awesome.  One may give you all the glory, honor and praise in the highest heaven (3rd heaven), in Jesus’ name, amen.
