SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

I speak to multitudes when I tell you that your quest for attention and recognition is simply selfish ambition as you seek to express yourself in unique ways. But, My purpose for you is that you become a vessel through whom the expression of My Spirit can flow, unhindered by your flesh. You do not have to clamor and strive for position or compare yourself with others. Simply be what I have created you to be and surrender completely to My purposes in and through you. Even if you happen to acquire the attention you think you need, it is still empty and vain. Establish yourself in secret communion with Me, says the Lord.

John 7:4a “For no one does anything in secret while he himself seeks to be known openly.”

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.

Allow Me to move you into the place of abiding in Me.  Let truth, righteousness and peace be the result.  Make a quality decision to yield to this work of the Spirit in you, for My divine government is being established on the earth one soul at a time.  I call you to be part of that government by faith and to rule and reign with Me.  Faith without works is dead, so I ask you to surrender your life completely to My kingdom purposes, says the Lord, and let the fruit of the Spirit become evident in your life.

Isaiah 9:7 Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

Surrender Yourself Completely To Me, Says The Lord

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS: 

Surrender yourself completely to Me, says the Lord.  Ask and I will show you areas of your soul where you have reserved the right of exercise and control.  Those places of thought and feelings will remain a battle ground for the enemy to use against you until they are completely surrendered and redeemed.  It won’t be hard for you to recognize those areas because they have repeatedly been the source of difficulty in your life.  Look in the realms of bitterness, condemnation, failure, fear, and worry.  The act of surrender must be a deliberate act of your will.  If you surrender, I will do the work of redemption. 

Philippians 2:13 for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.

Put Your Faith Entirely In Me, Says The Lord

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 12/29/2010:

Put your faith entirely in Me, says the Lord. Otherwise you will be driven by fear and anxiety. I am for you and not against you. If you will allow My supernatural intervention into your life, you will be delighted and amazed at how perfectly things work out. But, you must surrender completely to Me and pray with thanksgiving. Come to Me with your very best sacrifice of praise generated from a trusting heart.

Philippians 4:6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.

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

One Step At A Time In A Spiritual Progression

Beloved, I am elevating you spiritually to a higher level of understanding. This will lead to a level of maturity and stability that you have yet to experience, but it will not be one giant leap. It will be one step at a time in a continuous progression. Surrender to Me as I lead you in this progression, and in due time you will be able to look back and see how far you have come. This time is important to your spiritual journey, says the Lord.

Psalms 18:19 He also brought me out into a broad place; He delivered me because He delighted in me.

To Hide Or Protect Your Carnality Is To Resist The Cleansing

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — January 27, 2010:

Beloved, there has been an extreme and intense shaking in and among you, My people. This has been for the purpose of revealing aspects of your lives that need redemption. These are things that must either be transformed from flesh to Spirit or be removed altogether. This reformation is vital in this time of the preparation of My Bride, says the Lord. And, you must deliberately surrender everything that is resistant to this process if you are to proceed in My purposes. To hide or protect your carnality is to resist the cleansing.

Revelation 19:7 “Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.”

One may have awakened early this morning.  One may have been busy working.  Thank you Jesus.  One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  One may have thought of some things that one may need to surrender and decided to give them to Jesus during one’s prayer time.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet on time at 3:30 AM.  One may have begun to praise the Lord.  One may have confessed past sins that one may have committed as well as current sins and asked for forgiveness.

One may have thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today.  As one may have been writing one’s blog, one may have totally forgotten the scripture for today.  One may not write it down, one may trust the Lord to bring it back to one.  One may have remembered that it may have been in the book of Isaiah.  One may have prayed and may have been led to Isaiah 25.  One may have begun to read this chapter.  One may have known that this passage was not the desired passage.

One may have begun to search backwards and may not have found anything familiar.  One may have begun to get frustrated.  After getting to chapter 2 which one knew was not the desired passage, one may have gone to chapter 26.  This may not have been it either.  With the clock ticking for one to get this post done before midnight, one may have cried out to Jesus.

One may have been led to Isaiah 21.  One remembered!  One may have remembered looking at chapter 22 and saying to oneself, “No, one’s eyes fell on chapter 21 first.”  As one read the beginning of this passage, one remembered reading the word “Media”; one may have thought of the Persians and Medes.  Thank you Lord for bringing it all back to one and please forgive one’s impatience and frustration, in Jesus’ name one may pray, amen.

One may have found oneself outside one’s prayer closet.  It may have dawned on one and one wondered if one left early, not knowing the time.  One may have felt that one was done after receiving the passage of scripture for today.  One may have checked the time; it may have been exactly 4:30 AM, one’s appointed time to leave.  Thank you Jesus.

One may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Thank you Lord Jesus for answering the prayers of each outstanding prayer request, in Jesus’ name, amen.

You Must Forgive Every Offense From Your Heart

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

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

Before you can move one inch on the path of destiny, you must forgive every offense from your heart. Remember and practice My word, “And just as you want men to do to you, you also do to them likewise.” I will give unique opportunities to each of you, My people, to be established in these sayings of Mine, for I will have a unified Body–a Church that is blameless and without spot or blemish. Surrender to the work of My Spirit in the deepest recesses of your heart. Your spiritual life depends on it, says the Lord.

Matthew 18:34-35 “And his master was angry, and delivered him to the torturers until he should pay all that was due to him. So My heavenly Father also will do to you if each of you, from his heart, does not forgive his brother his trespasses.”

One may have awakened and did some writing after 1:00 AM this morning. As the time neared 3:00 AM, one quickly finished one’s writings and attempted to go back to sleep before one’s special time with Jesus at 3:30 AM.

One may have thought, “Check your phone, it might be dead and if so you may oversleep.”  One answered the thought with a thought, “I don’t even know where my cell phone is.” One dismissed the thought.  One may have been too tired to get up and besides one was wrapped perfectly in one’s blankets.

One may have been awakened by noise coming from the kitchen area.  One may have asked the individual the time.  It may have been 4:12 AM.  One may have overslept. Upon getting up, one may have looked for one’s phone.  One may have found it on the computer desk and it may have been totally dead.  Wow!  Hindsight being 20/20, one may believe the Holy Spirit may have been warning one.

One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have been encouraged.  One headed to one’s prayer closet.  One may have entered a little before 4:30 AM.

One may have started out by apologizing to the Lord for oversleeping and asking for His forgiveness.  One began to sing songs of praise to the Lord.  One may have confessed one’s sins and prayed for a passage of scripture for today.  One may have been led to Ezra 8.  Thank you Jesus!

One may have left one’s prayer closet and logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  One may have been really encouraged about praying for those who may need prayer.  One may know that the Lord answers these prayers.

Recently, one may have been led to review the praise reports from this particular website.  One may have waited days before finally giving into this gentle nudging.

While viewing the praise reports, one may have read a testimony that mirrored a specific prayer that one prayed.  What one asked for in this prayer may have been for the Lord to give the individual a new heart.

The praise report stated that the doctors said the individual had received a new heart, a heart of a sixteen year old and the new heart should last for another twenty years; surgery was no longer needed.

The individual giving the praise report thanked the prayer warriors for their prayers.  Hallelujah!  One may believe that the Lord wanted one to know that the prayer had been answered.  Thank you Jesus!

Lord one may thank you for answering each prayer request according to your perfect will and for being so awesome.  One may give you all the glory, honor and praise in the highest heaven (3rd heaven), in Jesus’ name, amen.
