SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns:

I am enlightening the eyes of your understanding so that you can see beyond your circumstances and temporary issues to view and understand your calling more fully. This light will bring perspective so that you don’t obsess about that which will come to pass. Set your eyes and your faith on the things that matter long-term, and don’t worry, says the Lord.

Ephesians 1:18 the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 3:30 AM.  One may have praised the Lord with song.  One may have decided to leave one’s prayer closet and pray from one’s bed.  One may have been tired and may have felt discouraged.  One may have fallen asleep shortly thereafter.

For, I will certainly bring enlightenment and direction in every circumstance. Stay calm and put your trust in Me, says the Lord.

The enemy has set out to tempt you to be distracted from My purposes and perspective. Distraction can easily become obsession by focusing on one aspect of your life. You have been called to be good stewards of what you’ve been given and what you’ve been given to do, and those areas of your life all need the attention they deserve. Refuse to allow obsession to overwhelm you and pervert your perspective. Remember to count your blessings and be thankful, says the Lord.

Philippians 4:6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.

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

Maintain Eternal Perspective

Beloved, set a watch for opposition and division. Regardless of where it pops up or the reasons behind it or the justifications for it, it is still the work of the enemy. You can’t fix anything or work through anything in the flesh or by human reason. This must be done in the realm of the spirit by the Holy Spirit and maintaining godly focus. Remind yourself of My purposes, My work, and My promises, says the Lord. Maintain eternal perspective, which is to look beyond what is immediate and temporary to that which is eternal.

Colossians 3:2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.

One may have checked the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin and may have received the message and it’s warning from the Lord.  One may have purposed in one’s heart to try to remember the Lord’s warning throughout the day.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet on time and began to praise the Lord at 3:30 AM.  One may have prayed to the Lord for His help.  Things may be most difficult in one’s life and one may not have seen the outcome coming on the horizon.

Later today some things may have happened that may have increased one’s faith and hope concerning events that may take place in the near future.  One must demonstrate tremendous faith at this point and trust that Jesus is busy doing and preparing one’s way.  Thank you Jesus.

One may have confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today.  The Lord may have led one to Ezekiel 42.  One may have pondered in one’s heart, the Lord’s choice of scripture.  Thank you Jesus for the scripture for today.

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