You Are An Overcomer, Says The Lord

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns–01/27/12:

There is a current shift in the realm of the spirit, and you are standing in a pivotal position between what has been and that which is to come. You will find yourself glancing back at past things for a moment before moving on. However, there will be a temptation to relive old rejections and places of isolation and loneliness. Refuse to allow these memories to cause you to get stuck in oppression or condemnation. The past has no power unless you remember so clearly that you put yourself in the same situation again. But, beloved, the purpose of looking back is to see how far you’ve come and how much you have overcome. Rejoice in this opportunity to take stock before taking the next step. You are an overcomer, says the Lord.

Romans 12:21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

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

One may have prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have been led to Proverbs 12 – Love Instruction!  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.

Remember That I Have Given You Authority And Power To Overcome

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 1/21/11:

Stir yourself up in your most holy faith. Push back the darkness that tries to encroach and violate your boundaries and the rights of your covenant with Me, says the Lord. Refuse the attacks of the enemy, which are designed to bring you down in oppression and reproach. Let your light shine so that the darkness is dispelled and the devil has no place in you. Remember that I have given you authority and power to overcome.

Jude 20-21: But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

One may have awakened this morning.  One may have checked for the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  It may not have been in one’s e-mail inbox just as one may have expected.

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 1 Samuel 17.  Thank You Jesus!

One may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests after leaving one’s prayer closet.  Thank You Lord for answering each prayer request according to Your perfect will, in Jesus’ name.  Amen.

I Am With You To Bring You Through Every Trial In Victory

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Oct. 13, 2010:

Do not concern yourself with how others perceive you. Only concern yourself with your relationship to Me, says the Lord, and remember My love for you that is everlasting. It does not matter what others might think, believe or say; what matters is that you put your absolute faith and trust in Me and not in men. I will never leave you nor forsake you, and I am with you to bring you through every trial in victory. Stand solidly on that assurance.

Isaiah 33:6 Wisdom and knowledge will be the stability of your times, and the strength of salvation; the fear of the LORD is His treasure.

One may have had a challenging night.  One may not have been feeling too well and may have prayed one’s way through the symptoms.  Before one may have fallen asleep, one may have had chills and a stuffed up nose.  One may have prayed against these ailments and this may have been the beginning of a long night.

One may remember awakening and feeling chest congestion.  One may have prayed to the Lord, asking Him to remove the blanket of congestion over one’s lungs.  He may have.  One may have awakened numerous times more and prayed for whatever may have been ailing one until most of the symptoms had subsided.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 3:30 AM.  One may have praised the Lord with song.  One may have prayed a brief prayer and may have gone back to bed.  One may not have been feeling up to par.

One may not have taken medication last night.  One may have trusted Jesus first and foremost.  One may be feeling much better now; no, fever, stuffy nose, just occasional coughing or the blowing of one’s nostrils.  One may have even felt like running an errand this evening.

There may not be a passage of scripture for today.  One may not have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  One may double one’s time on the website tomorrow morning during one’s prayer time.

Thank You Jesus for healing one so quickly and helping one get through this ordeal, in Jesus’ name, one may pray, Amen.

Something Has Changed In Your Spiritual Atmosphere

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — June 2, 2010:

Have you noticed that something has changed in your spiritual atmosphere? Yet, because you have not identified this change, it just seems strange. I have released the power of grace over My people. Evaluate how it affects your soul and your environment and remember it, for surely the enemy is preparing to attack again. And, when he does you will notice the change and be prepared to fight against him. Be aware and be sensitive to these spiritual shifts, go with the flow, and act accordingly, says the Lord.

Romans 13:11 And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed.

One may have awakened on one’s own this morning.  One may have fallen back asleep only to wake later feeling refreshed.  One may have thought that one may have missed one’s prayer time.  One may have remembered that one may have possibly left one’s phone in the car.

One may have discovered that one had not missed one’s prayer time.  One may have checked for today’s Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  It may not have posted.  One may have checked a few more times and it may have loaded after several attempts.

One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  The message may have spoken to one’s heart.  One may have been encouraged.  Thank You Jesus!

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 Psalms 128.  Thank You Jesus!

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

Beloved, Be Slow To Anger And Quick To Forgive

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — May 13, 2010:

Beloved, be slow to anger and quick to forgive. I tell you the truth that the enemy has released forces of darkness against you to tempt you to be offended. But, you must stand in a place of forgiveness and not open the door through carnal responses to what other’s have done. Remember that you will reap what you sow; if you are offended with others, you will become offensive. Release all resentment and extend mercy, says the Lord.

James 1:19 So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath.

One may have overslept this morning.  One may have gone to bed after 12:00 AM this morning.  One may have been exhausted.  One may have apologized to the Lord before going to sleep.  One may have known in one’s heart that one would not awaken for one’s special time with Jesus.

To one’s dismay it may have been a little before 6:00 AM before one would be awakened by one’s daughter.  One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  One may have been encouraged.  One may have thought to just pray and confess tomorrow morning.

Later this morning, one may have attempted to praise the Lord, confess one’s sins and pray for the outstanding prayer requests online.  One may have done so with interruptions.

One may have just prayed for a passage of scripture.  One may have been led to Ecclesiastes 9.  Thank You Jesus!

Lord Jesus, thank you for answering each prayer request according to your perfect will, amen.

For What I Build Will Stand And Not Be Torn Down

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — April 7, 2010:

Remember that I have shown you that you are able to begin again on a clean foundation free from the works of the flesh, but I also want you to know that building by the Spirit has already begun. What I build will stand and not be torn down, for it is an eternal work. Your part in this process is to cooperate with My Spirit in this process and refrain from doing your own thing, says the Lord. Be sensitive to My leading.

Psalms 127:1 Unless the LORD builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the LORD guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain.

One may have awakened to the sound of the 3:00 AM alarm.  One may have reset it for 3:20 AM.  One may have thought to get up just a little before 3:20 AM.  The alarm went off.

One may have got up and logged onto one’s computer.  One’s printer began to come alive, churning as if it had something to print.  One may have initially thought that one’s daughter may be printing something from her bedroom.  We may have a WIFI capable printer.

The printer may have printed a document.  It may have printed, “according to your perfect will, amen.”  One thought this very odd.  One may consistently end one’s blogs this way.

One may have opened MS Word and checked the document from the previous day’s blog.  There may have been too much text on the second page and one knew that the printer had not printed from this document.  Also, no documents were open in MS Word.  One may have wondered if Jesus was giving one a direct message.  If so, what does this mean?

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

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 3:30 AM and may have taken along the document and a few other items.  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 17.  Thank you Jesus.

One may have left one’s prayer closet.  One may have recorded the approximate time and date that this phenomenon (document mysteriously printing) occurred and put it away with one’s important documents.  One may have called one’s daughter to see if they had printed anything from the printer.  One’s daughter may have been asleep at that time and told one that they had not printed anything.

One may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Thank you Lord Jesus for answering each prayer request according to your perfect will, amen.

I Will Raise Up The Spirit Of Elijah In Those Who Are Willing

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — March 30, 2010:

It is written that the Spirit of Elijah must come and fulfill all things. And, so in these days I will raise up the spirit of Elijah in those who are willing; even as I did in John the Baptist, that the world and My people might see that there is a God who is alive; a God Who rules from heaven. And through the power of the demonstration of the gospel, a fullness of the restoration of My kingdom will come to the earth and be found among My people. Dare to believe that I can use you in such a manner, for have you not been in the wilderness? Have I not kept you even in dry places? Have I not revealed Myself to you? But now is the season of your coming out. Now is the season of your coming forth. Now is the time that you come out of the wilderness in strength and power. Remember these words that I am speaking to you because it is from the wilderness that you come into the glory and into the promised land, says the Lord God Most Holy.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — March 30, 2010:

Come out from the darkness that has kept you from realizing, enjoying, and demonstrating kingdom life. There has even been deep darkness and a sense of failure and hopelessness for many, but I have made a way for you to come forth in the power of My Spirit. You must truly let go of the past and leave behind all things that have wounded or debilitated you. Now is the time. Come forth, says the Lord.

Philippians 3:13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead.

It may be 9:17 PM and one may have just read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today. One may be encouraged.  Thank you Jesus.  One may have hooked up one’s computer moments ago to complete one’s blog for today.

One’s Internet service may be up and running again.  Thank you Jesus!  One may have been told yesterday by the customer service representative for one’s internet service that the order for a new modem would take a couple of days to be processed and that once shipped it would take seven to ten business days to be delivered.

One may have called later and spoke to a different customer service representative.  One may have discovered that the shipping had been charged to one.  One may have asked the individual a question, “Do you think that the shipping should be charge to me?”  The customer service representative may have put one on hold.  When they came back, they may have told one that they were reversing the charge and that one would see the reversal in one’s next bill.

An e-mail may have been sent to one’s daughter while one may have been writing one’s blog yesterday, indicating that the modem had been shipped.

The modem may have been in Charlotte, NC this morning and delivered to one a little after 12:50 PM.  Thank you Jesus!

Hopefully, one’s prayer time with Jesus will return to normal now that the Internet service may have been restored.

One may have missed one’s prayer closet time due to exhaustion.  One may not have heard the alarm.  One may have attempted to pray after 6:00 AM.  One may have been distracted and never completed one’s confessions through out the day.  Please forgive one Lord, in Jesus’ name, one may pray, amen.
