SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

I need you to be quiet and learn to focus, says the Lord. Stress comes from a wandering mind and being too scattered. Take the time necessary to deal with or dismiss thoughts that are unproductive and that take you away from your obedience to Me. It is time to clean up your thought process and at the same time clean up your spiritual atmosphere in order to gain greater clarity of purpose. You will be delighted with the results.

2 Corinthians 10:4-6 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.

Be Still And Discern What It Is That Hinders Your Walk In The Spirit

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Be still and discern what it is that hinders your walk in the Spirit. There are people you must forgive and issues that you have to release in order to be free enough to move in the flow of My Spirit unhindered. But, you must get quiet enough to see and understand how important it is for you to stay clear spiritually, mentally and emotionally. Otherwise, there will be things in the natural realm that will siphon off your physical and spiritual energy. Now is the time to deal with all unrighteousness, says the Lord.

Isaiah 55:7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the LORD, and He will have mercy on him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Be strong and stay steady as you move from one thing to the next. I didn’t promise that it would be easy, but I did promise that I would be with you and not forsake you. There will be times when you just need to be quiet; an emotional meltdown will not serve your best interests, says the Lord. Trust Me for wisdom and direction. I will indeed point the way and protect you on the way.

Hebrews 3:14 For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Beloved, the strength of your life and health is not only found in joy but in dealing with things as they come.  Diligence is the operative word here.  Quiet and steady perseverance will benefit you greatly and keep you moving forward.  This is no time to get stuck in circumstances that seem to be overwhelming.  When something seems to be beyond your ability to deal with, trust Me for the help that you need, says the Lord.  I will give you direction, wisdom and strength in all things.

I Am Your Help In Times Of Trouble; Rely On Me

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin  

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

Take the time to be quiet so that you can be sensitive to My wisdom and My leading. When you give into the temptation to entertain emotional turmoil, you will no longer hear My voice. Instead, the doors will open for the enemy’s confusion to flood in. Refuse to allow the devil to have any ground in you whatsoever, quiet your soul, and trust Me to direct your steps, says the Lord. I am your help in times of trouble; rely on Me.

Psalm 9:9-10 The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; for You, LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You.

When You Put Your Trust In Me, Peace Is Established

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 3/15/11:

Be still, watch, and discern. If you will quiet your thoughts and silence your feelings, you will have the ability to recognize and identify your spiritual atmosphere apart from your soul and be able to move through difficulties with ease. When you allow fear and anxiety to rule, the outcome is always chaos. But, when you put your trust in Me, peace is established, says the Lord.

Isaiah 26:3 You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.

One may have turned off the 3:20 AM alarm and may have fallen back asleep.  One may have awakened sometime after 4 AM.  One may have been late for one’s prayer time with Jesus.  Lord, please forgive one for being late this morning, in Jesus’ name, one may pray, Amen.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Sept. 9, 2010:

Do you hear the sound of the trumpet blast? It is the predominant sound in the realm of the Spirit to call you, My people, to come up higher. Those of you who have ears to hear will hear the sound that resonates with your heart to draw near to Me to receive instruction and direction for the next significant phase of your journey. Quiet your soul and listen with a sense of purpose and intention, ready to move forward with resolve and determination. I will lead you, says the Lord.

Psalms 47:5 God has gone up with a shout, The LORD with the sound of a trumpet.

One may have awakened a little before midnight and may have fallen asleep after 2:00 AM.  One may have wanted to be physically refreshed and revitalized before one’s prayer time with Jesus.

One may have awakened on one’s own.  It may have been close to 6:30 AM.  One may have overslept and may not have heard one’s alarms as they may have signaled for one to get up for one’s special time with Jesus.

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

One may have entered one’s prayer closet.  One may have praised the Lord with song and confessed one’s sins.  One may have had to leave one’s prayer closet and may have finished one’s prayer time in one’s bedroom.  One may have finished confessing one’s sins and one may have thanked the Lord.

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — August 16, 2010:

I am coming to you in this season, My beloved, to lead you from chaos to peace. I have come to lead you out of the chaos that the world around you creates and lead you into the kingdom of My peace. For it is in My peace that you will be established where the living waters will flow. It is in My peace that the joy of the Lord, which is your strength, will come. It will be in the flow of My peace, and it shall run in these days even as a river runs. It will bring you into the fullness of kingdom reality and in that reality, My beloved, you will see things and reason in ways that you have not reasoned before. For, you shall see from a heavenly perspective and no longer from an earthly reality and those things that are coming to you will be revealed by My Spirit. You will be established in My kingdom in a very profound and blessed way, says the Lord God.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — August 16, 2010:

If you can receive it, beloved, I am releasing the anointing of peace to quiet your troubled soul. It is not necessary that you work to accomplish My purposes in your life. Yours is to rest in the security of destiny, says the Lord. Trust Me!

Isaiah 55:12 For you shall go out with joy, and be led out with peace; the mountains and the hills shall break forth into singing before you, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.

I Will Lead You By The Still Waters So That You Can Still Your Soul

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — June 21, 2010:

Tell My people that I am about to turn the volume up on My voice.  There is much noise in the world; there is clamoring; crusading; all manor of evil, and they all have a voice.  Those whose ears have been defiled by those things that have taken place in the world will now come into an opportunity to hear My voice if they have never heard it before.  For, it is necessary that you begin to desire to hear Me above and beyond everything else that takes up your time; everything that speaks into your life and is a distraction to you in this world.  Whether it be the radio, the TV, or the voice of people, those things can all become a distraction to you and prohibit you from hearing My voice, says the Lord.

It is necessary that I watch over you, and lead you into the fullness of the kingdom that I have prepared for you.  And, for those things which are written to take place you must now hear My voice.  I will speak in ways that you are not used to.  I will speak to you, and you will hear in a manner that you are not accustomed to.  I will pour out of My Spirit upon you and I will show you signs in the earth and heavens above.  I will lead you by the still waters so that you can still your soul and quiet those things which hinder you so that you can indeed hear Me, says the Most High.

In a vision I saw a huge piece of bread being spread with soft butter or oil, and I heard the Lord say, “I am your bread and butter.” I took that to mean that He is our provision, but I also saw it as He is the bread of life, the Word, and the oil or anointing. Then, He said, “Taste and see that I am good.”

Psalms 34:8 Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!

One may have awakened this morning.  One may have turned off one’s alarm and may have fallen back asleep.  One may have awakened later, on one’s own.  One may have looked at the time; it may have been close to 5:00 AM.

One may have gotten up and read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have been so encouraged that one may have read it several times over.  Thank you Jesus!

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 5:08 AM.  One may have asked the Lord to forgive one for going back to sleep.  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 Jeremiah 38.  Thank You Jesus!

Quiet Your Soul, Be Still, And Let Me Speak To Your Heart

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

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

Quiet your soul, be still, and let Me speak to your heart. Come into a place of quiet trust. Yield to the leading of My Spirit so that you can be positioned to receive all that is available to you. There are many great and precious promises awaiting fulfillment when you get in the right position to acquire them. Have faith in Me to reposition you at this time, says the Lord.

2 Peter 1:2-4 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

One may have awakened late.  One’s cell phone have died last night.  One may have charged it but forgot to turn it on.  One may have quickly read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for  the day.  One may have been blessed and encouraged.  Thank you Jesus!

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 3:41 AM.  One may have praised the Lord with song, confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord, and prayed for a passage of scripture for this blog..

One may not be able to recall the scripture for this day.  One may not write down the scriptures that the Lord may give to one.  One may believe that the Holy Spirit will bring it back to one.  At this point, one may have nothing.

One may remember that the chapter may have been one that one may have thought was refreshing and new.  One may believe it is chapter six of some book in the Old Testament.

One may have opened one’s Bible and looked at the names of each book and nothing may have looked familiar. Hmmmm?  One may have looked at the names of the New Testament as well.  Still, nothing.

One may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests after one’s prayer time with Jesus.  Thank you Lord Jesus for answering each prayer request according to your will, in Jesus’ name one may pray, amen.
