SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Watch out for the temptation to take control where you have no responsibility or authority. Situations will arise that are startling and have the potential of throwing you into a tailspin, but you must not react with plans of your own to find solutions or to change things so that you will be more comfortable. You must settle in your heart the fact that things will happen that are beyond your ability to fix. That is when you can ask Me to give wisdom and direction beyond your finite understanding, says the Lord. Trust Me!

James 1:5 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.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Be still and do not overreact to discouraging news or things that intrude into your life and threaten your tranquility. Maintain peace in the process of responding to situations that are difficult or challenging. You must keep yourself in spiritual flow, faith and peace. Refuse every temptation to fear. Discouragement will kill your anointing and your place of stability in Me, says the Lord.

Isaiah 26:20 Come, my people, enter your chambers, and shut your doors behind you; hide yourself, as it were, for a little moment, until the indignation is past.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Beloved, you are still in a season of correction. Pay attention because it will sometimes come in unexpected ways. I will even use situations and circumstances to reveal places that need adjustment. All you have to do is be willing to yield and to refuse to respond defensively or take correction as rejection. You are still under My tutelage, and I am refining you as you grow in My kingdom, says the Lord. You will be glad that you surrendered to this process.

Hebrews 12:6 For whom the LORD loves He chastens, and scourges every son whom He receives.

Watch For And Take Advantage Of Opportunities To Defeat A Haughty Spirit

It’s All About Jesus!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Watch for and take advantage of opportunities to defeat a haughty spirit. These opportunities will come suddenly in various situations and circumstances, but you can quite easily gain the victory by clothing yourself with humility. For indeed, I give grace to the humble, says the Lord. I will empower you to defuse explosive situations by manifesting the fruit of the Spirit. The haughty spirit is a weapon and even a stronghold formed against you, but the weapons I have given you are more subtle and powerful.

2 Corinthians 10:4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds.

Refuse to be overwhelmed by the circumstances and situations that you are now facing and having to deal with. Maintain your peace and stay calm, for I will certainly take you through this time with great grace. Know that you are well able to accomplish what is before you to do even when you doubt your abilities. Put your confidence in Me, says the Lord. I can do what you cannot.

Set Yourself To Receive All That I Have Made Available To You

It’s All About Jesus!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 9/22/11:

Practice discernment and exercise your faith. Your awareness is like a muscle that can be developed with use. Don’t be afraid to activate your spiritual acuity in everyday situations and circumstances. This is a season when you can operate in spiritual gifts at a higher level than you ever thought possible. Prepare yourself by faith to hear My voice, to see visions, to dream dreams, and to have a heightened sense of your atmosphere and environment. Set yourself to receive all that I have made available to you, says the Lord. I am with you.

Acts 2:17-19a And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, that I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your young men shall see visions, your old men shall dream dreams. And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; and they shall prophesy. I will show wonders in heaven above and signs in the earth beneath.

Make A Review Of The Things That I Punctuate In Your Current Environment

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin  

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 8/31/11:


Be alert to situations and issues that will serve as a platform from which to deal with old mindsets that will not serve you well in your current journey to higher spiritual ground. Make a review of the things that I punctuate in your current environment, but do so without allowing rejection or condemnation to cloud your vision. The enemy will do whatever he can to keep you from looking at things objectively and with clarity. But if you will see this time as being necessary for instruction leading to greater understanding instead of a personal attack against who you are, it will serve as a springboard to the next phase of your journey. Otherwise, it could just become a trap, says the Lord.

Mark 8:25 Then He put His hands on his eyes again and made him look up. And he was restored and saw everyone clearly.

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 John 11 – The death of Lazarus.

Refuse To Get Stuck In Indecision

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 2/9/11:

This is a time when decisive action will be required if you are to make any progress. Your challenges will come in situations where you have been ambiguous. Ask Me for wisdom, direction, and guidance, and I will certainly impart it to you, says the Lord. But, when you sow double-mindedness into your circumstances, you will only reap confusion and uncertainty. Refuse to get stuck in indecision.

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’s blog.  One may have been led to 1 Kings 22.  Thank You Jesus!

Seek To Glorify Me

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 1/20/11:

Hush. Be still and stop fretting. Worry will get you nowhere. If you will be quiet and rise up in the Spirit, I will give you peace and bring healing and restoration to your troubled soul. When you are in turmoil it is because you have lost focus, paying more attention to situations that concern you rather than trusting Me, says the Lord. For those who have asked to see My glory, you will not see My glory until you continually give Me honor in all things. My glory will be revealed to those who seek to glorify Me.

Psalms 131:2 Surely I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a weaned child with his mother; like a weaned child is my soul within me.

Now Is The Time To Establish And Maintain Good Boundaries

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Oct. 4, 2010:

Beloved, watch for the enemy to either tempt you to get involved in situations that are none of your business, or he will tempt others to violate your boundaries by not minding their own business. Either situation will create problems that you will ultimately not like to deal with. Now is the time to establish and maintain good boundaries, says the Lord.

Proverbs 26:17 He who passes by and meddles in a quarrel not his own is like one who takes a dog by the ears.
