I Have Given You Authority Over All The Powers Of Darkness

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin  

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 6/22/11:

Take time to look and discern your spiritual atmosphere. Then, you must war against the darkness by active resistance and bring light to your environment by establishing truth. In this way you will facilitate victory over all the works of the enemy. Quiet your flesh and exercise your faith to accomplish this task, knowing that I have given you authority over all the powers of darkness. Do not be afraid, says the Lord. I have called you to overcome.

Luke 10:19 Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet before 3:28 AM.  One may have been distracted and left briefly.  One may have come to oneself and entered one’s prayer closet again.  It may have been 3:31 AM and one may have been late.  Lord, please forgive.

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 1 Thessalonians 4 – Pleasing God/Rapture.  Thank You Jesus!

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

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

You Have Come This Far, Do Not Turn Back

It’s All About Jesus!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — May 6, 2010:

I kept hearing in my spirit the phrase “point of no return”. The point of no return is defined as the point beyond which you must continue on your current course of action, either because turning back is physically impossible or because to do so would be prohibitively expensive or dangerous. It is also used when the distance or effort required to get back would be greater than the remainder of the journey or task undertaken. And, I heard the Lord say: Even though fear of the unknown outcome of your present course would tempt you to go back to what seems safe or familiar, you must press on. To not press on would mean spiritual stagnation. The challenges you face in the days ahead will give opportunity for greater wisdom, strength and stability than you could ever have imagined. You have come this far; do not turn back.

Philippians 1:6 being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.

One may have overslept.  One may have read the Spririt of Prophecy Bulletin.  One may not have entered one’s prayer closet.  One may have been detained and proceeded to praise the Lord.

One may have confessed one’s sins but never completed one’s confessions.  One may have slipped into a day of rebellion, old habits and ways.  It may have started at the beginning of this week and progressed more and more each day.

There may not be a scripture for today; one may not have prayed for one.  One may not have prayed for the outstanding prayer requests.

Please Lord forgive one’s many sins, in Jesus’ name one may pray, amen.

Expect It To Get Very Personal

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Dec. 11, 2009:

It’s been an uphill climb, but things will begin to level out. This leveling out will be a process, so don’t get discouraged if you don’t see the results immediately. Calmly stay in faith and be patient. Your quiet trust is important at this juncture. I am still fixing things that need to be fixed, says the Lord, and the further you go in getting things fixed, the more intimate the accomplishment of this task becomes. Expect it to get very personal.

Psalms 73:28 But it is good for me to draw near to God; I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all Your works.

One may have awakened to the sound of the alarm at 3:00 AM.  One reset it for 3:20 AM.  The alarm may have gone off a second time.  One may have logged onto the computer and read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.

One may have been pleased with today’s message.  One may believe one may have gone through another storm recently.  Things in one’s home may have gone very smoothly yesterday overall. Things may be peaceful currently.  Thank you Jesus!

One may have entered one’s prayer closet to begin cleaning.  One may have started one’s praise session.  One sang songs, confessed one’s sins, prayed for the sick, read a passage of scripture and spoke in tongues.

One may not have had a whole lot on one’s plate to confess which is good.  One may have been lead to Job 34 for the passage of scripture. A little after 4:30 AM, one may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.
