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.

 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 Mark 14.  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.­­­­­

You Must Turn Back The Battle At The Gate

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — May 5, 2010:

Beloved, you must turn back the battle at the gate — stop the enemy’s entrance and defeat him at the first sign of fear, discouragement, disappointment, or hopelessness. You will be tempted by negative emotions on many levels, but you must refuse to allow them to take control or overwhelm you in any way. I will strengthen you to overcome as you rise up and take a stand against these attacks, says the Lord.

Ephesians 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.

Isaiah 28:6b … for strength to those who turn back the battle at the gate.

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

One may have entered one’s prayer closet.  One may have praised the Lord with song, confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for one’s blog today.  One may have been led to Ezekiel 27.

One may have paused before writing the previous sentence.  One may have grabbed one’s Bible.  One may not have remembered the scripture for today.  One may have asked the Lord for help.

One may have been led to a passage of scripture that one may have been looking at earlier today in 1 kings.  This may not have been the chosen passage of scripture for today’s blog.  The Holy Spirit may have simply brought the name of the book back to one, then the chapter.  Thank You Jesus and Holy Spirit for your help.
