Plant Your Feet On The Ground Of Hope And Faith, And Do Not Compromise Your Position

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns:

Resist the temptation to make a mountain out of the proverbial molehill or to create an issue out of something not worth your time or effort to consider. You will have unique opportunities to think about your position in the light of spiritual reality and to be able to see the value in not overreacting emotionally to things that represent a challenge to you. When you are not sure which way to turn, ask Me and I will show you the way, says the Lord. Plant your feet on the ground of hope and faith, and do not compromise your position.

1 Peter 1:20-21 He indeed was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you who through Him believe in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.

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 Ezekiel 26 – A Prophecy Against Tyrus.  Thank You Jesus!

Watch For And Discern Those Things That Remove You From My Presence

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 11/2/11:

There are adjustments to be made if you will live and walk in the Spirit. Watch for and discern those things that remove you from My presence, says the Lord. For, there are thoughts, motives, and actions that need to be overcome and abandoned for the sake of peace and eternal benefit. The enemy of your soul continues to watch for opportunities to destroy you. This is a time when you should make your call and election sure.

2 Peter 1:5-11 But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins. Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble; for so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

One may have heard subsequent alarms go off.  One may have been tired and may have continued to sleep.  When one may have finally gotten up, it may have been 3:40 AM.  One may have been late for one’s special time with Jesus.  Jesus, please forgive one for not checking the time when one may have heard the first alarm.  One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 3:55 AM.  One may have praised the Lord with song.

As one may have been preparing one’s prayer closet, one may have noticed that one’s fish tank may have been very cloudy and the water may have looked murky and brown.  One may have thought this odd due to one changing the water the previous day.  One may have put in a product to clear the water.  Fearing that the product may have been too old, one may have done an 80% water change.

One’s cat may have been getting on top of the tank recently.  One may believe that the cat may have drunk water from the tank’s filter and it may have put its paw in it as well.  One may have created a cover for the fish tank’s opening where the filter may be exposed that may allow air in and keep the cat out.  Thank You Jesus!  The fish may be doing fine.  Both the fish and cat may be three years old.

One may have reentered one’s prayer closet while continuing to confess one’s sins.  One may have thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today.  One may have been led to 1 Kings 21 – Naboth’s Vineyard.  Thank You Jesus!

Beloved, I Am Creating Opportunities In Your Life That Will Lead To Greater Unity With Me

It’s All About Jesus!

Beloved, I am creating opportunities in your life that will lead to greater unity with Me, says the Lord. I will reveal those things that create hindrances and distance between us. Let Me show you the way to restored innocence and purity, not as one who worships from outside, but as one who can enjoy spiritual intimacy with confidence in the reality of oneness.

Hebrews 13:20-21 Now may the God of peace who brought up our Lord Jesus from the dead, that great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you complete in every good work to do His will, working in you what is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.

Now Is The Time To Resolve Old Issues Before You Move Into The New Season

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 9/28/11:

Now is the time to resolve old issues before you move into the new season. I speak of such things as unforgiveness and bitterness against yourself and others. Allowing these things to exist in a fresh spiritual environment of possibilities would only pollute and defile clean and pristine opportunities. Enter this time with a clean heart. Examine yourself to see if you are in faith and ready to receive all that I have prepared for you, says the Lord.

Psalms 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

Walking In The Spirit Will Reveal Your Course Of Action In Every Situation

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 9/13/11:

I will cause you to see and understand the limitations of your responsibilities with more clarity. This is so that you do not intrude or try to exercise your authority beyond the limits of your duty. It is My desire for you, My children, to assume your rightful place without causing confusion or overstepping your boundaries. You will have opportunities to determine those things that are yours to do and those things that are not. Walking in the Spirit will reveal your course of action in every situation, says the Lord. Be sensitive to My leading.

Joel 2:7 They run like mighty men, they climb the wall like men of war; every one marches in formation, and they do not break ranks. They do not push one another; every one marches in his own column. Though they lunge between the weapons, they are not cut down.

Be Still And Draw Near To Me

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin  

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 8/12/11:

As much as you try to keep all of your ducks in a row, so to speak, you still feel out of sync. This is because you are sensing the turmoil in the spirit. There is a clamoring for position in the unseen realm as powers of darkness station themselves to take advantage of opportunities to rule in the political arena on earth. The spiritual atmosphere is one of chaos and confusion at this time, but you can find your peace in My presence as you trust in My guidance and protection, says the Lord. Be still and draw near to Me.

Psalms 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!

One may have entered one’s prayer closet 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 Mark 14 The plot to kill Jesus.  Thank You Jesus!

As You Know, Double-Mindedness Gets You Nothing

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin  

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 8/3/11:

You will have opportunities in the days ahead to solve both short-term and long-standing problems. If you will set your heart to know the solution, I will give you the wisdom necessary for breakthrough. But, you must seek Me and believe that I will help you. As you know, double-mindedness gets you nothing. Your singleness of mind and faith will give you the answers you need, the progress you desire and the breakthrough you’ve longed for, says the Lord.

James 1:5-8 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

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 Isaiah 53 – The Messiah’s death predicted.  Thank You Jesus!
