Refuse To Allow Presumption To Cloud Your Discernment

It’s All About Jesus!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns–01/12/12:

Refuse to allow presumption to cloud your discernment. You should never act, react, respond, or take your next step based on what you assume is truth. If you are uncertain about an issue or circumstance, take the time to investigate and discover the facts. Just because your conclusion seems reasonable does not make it true. And, presumption will plunge you into the darkness of deception, says the Lord. Stay in the light and truth, and maintain confidence in My word as you follow My precepts.

Psalms 19:13 Keep back Your servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me. Then I shall be blameless, and I shall be innocent of great transgression.

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.  One may have prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have been led to Nehemiah 10 – The People Decided to Live for God.  Thank You Jesus!

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

One may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Thank You Jesus for answering each prayer request according to Your perfect will.  Amen.

Develop The Habit Of Walking In The Spirit So That Your Flesh Cannot Have Free Rein

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — February 10, 2010:

Stop and discern My heart in every situation and circumstance. Make sure that everything that you say or do is in complete accord with My purposes. Develop the habit of walking in the Spirit so that your flesh cannot have free rein. You will be amazed at how easy it really is once you make the decision to not just react to life but to respond to My Spirit in every instance. This is a new day and requires a new approach, says the Lord.

Galatians 5:16 I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.

One’s alarm may have gone off at 3:00 AM.  One may have fallen back asleep.  One may have awakened late for one’s special time with Jesus.  One may have hurriedly read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 4:15 AM.  One may have begun by praising the Lord with song.  One may have begun to confess one’s sins only to be interrupted.  One may have had to leave one’s prayer closet and finish praying at one’s computer desk.

Individuals may have interrupted one time and time again.  One may have got through one’s confessions eventually.  One may have prayed for outstanding prayer requests on the website sometime during the late morning.  Thank you Jesus for answering the prayer request of each individual according to your will.

One may have prayed for a passage of scripture this afternoon.  One may have been led to Jeremiah 33.  Thank you Jesus.  One’s day may have been most unusual because one may have chose to let one’s flesh lead.  Had one gotten up at the appropriate time, one’s time with Jesus may have been uninterrupted and one’s prayer time may have flowed as usual.  Lord, please forgive one for one’s sins, in Jesus’ name, one may pray, amen.
