THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS:

Storms in the natural realm are signs of spiritual storms. Have no fear, but prepare yourself for the storms. Be alert, for these storms will challenge you by causing you to get into moments of reflection that will cause you to remember failures from the past, which should be forgotten. The enemy will bring lies and accusations against you, My people. Prepare yourself even as Paul prepared for shipwreck; the ship was lost, but there was no loss of life. In the same way, the ship of your past, your own desires and failed dreams may go down, but you will be positioned in another place of blessing where you will walk in the power of My Spirit and not in the power of your own strength, says the Lord. (Acts ch. 27)

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Indeed, old ceilings have become new floors as you have arisen to a new level of spiritual experience. And now I am establishing you there and causing you to stabilize and be more solid in the knowledge and skill that you have gained in new spiritual activity. You have been challenged to exercise a higher degree of maturity and will now experience a greater calm in the midst of the storms of life, says the Lord. Be strong!

Ephesians 4:11-15 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head-Christ-

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Sept. 30, 2009:

In a dream I found myself in a cave and then in a narrow passage climbing almost straight up. It seemed that I was leading a group of people through this passage. It was a really tight squeeze, and I wondered if I would make it through the places where the rock opening was only big enough for me to climb through. I had to fight the fear of getting stuck, and had to just kept pushing on. It seemed like a long way, but I and those with me finally got to a place where the cave opened into a large room with a level floor. There were windows in the cave that overlooked a harbor far below. I asked the Lord, and He said that the cave and the upward journey represent those of us who have encountered difficult circumstances and that we must keep moving forward. We are about to reach a place of safety and security far above the storms that we’ve endured. Breakthrough is imminent!

Psalm 107:23-31 Those who go down to the sea in ships, who do business on great waters, they see the works of the LORD, and His wonders in the deep. For He commands and raises the stormy wind, which lifts up the waves of the sea. They mount up to the heavens, they go down again to the depths; their soul melts because of trouble. They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wits’ end. Then they cry out to the LORD in their trouble, and He brings them out of their distresses. He calms the storm, so that its waves are still. Then they are glad because they are quiet; so He guides them to their desired haven. Oh, that men would give thanks to the LORD for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men!

One may have awakened early this morning.  One may have logged onto one’s computer and checked out Face Book and Twitter.

One may have gone into the bathroom and began to clean it.  One may come out a few minutes before one’s start time.  One checked the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.

One returned to the bathroom.  AT 3:30 AM, one may have begun to praise the Lord while continuing to clean. One may have confessed one’s sins and then thanked the Lord.

One may have become very sleepy.  One wanted to leave, but knew better.  One got up and spoke in tongues.  One began to pray for the sick.  When one finished praying for the sick, one spoke in tongues and sang praises to the Lord again.

One would alternate frequently between standing and sitting.  Whenever one sat down, one would feel so sleepy.  One’s eyes would close and one would catch oneself dozing off.

One may have checked the time over and over again.  Oh how one wanted to go lie down to sleep.

When one finished at 4:30 AM, one may have gone and lied down immediately.  The desire to sleep was not present anymore.
