SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

You’ve heard it said, “Do not let the sun go down on your wrath.”  But, I also tell you not to let any day end with strife, contention, or division in your own heart or between you and someone else.  Seek peace and let it be established in you and in your environment.  Set your mind on things of the Spirit and not on trouble in the world.  Let your soul be established in righteousness, peace and joy, says the Lord.  This is especially crucial in the current political climate in your nation and around the world. 

1 Peter 3:11  Let him turn away from evil and do good; let him seek peace and pursue it.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet around 3:30 AM.  One may have praised the Lord with song, confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for the sick.

Be done with all trauma of the past. Today is a new day, and this is a day when you can move forward with a new lease on life. By faith remove the stigma of condemnation and rise up in new hope and confidence that you are more than a conqueror. Set your face like flint and allow nothing to deter you from your desired and sought-after goal. I am your hope, your strength, and your very present help in times of trouble, says the Lord.

Romans 8:37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.

Keep In Mind This Too Shall Pass

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 2/10/11:

You will need to step back from the things that trouble you in order to see more clearly and to perceive My work in the midst of all that is happening in and around you. This has to be a deliberate decision on your part if you are to gain a broader perspective. Keep in mind that this too shall pass. Time and chance will not allow you to stop the progression of life, says the Lord.

Ecclesiastes 9:11 I returned and saw under the sun that-the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, nor bread to the wise, nor riches to men of understanding, nor favor to men of skill; but time and chance happen to them all.

Come And Commune With Me In The Secret Place

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 2/4/11:

If you will diligently and urgently seek My face with all your heart instead of only looking for me to manifest outwardly, I will release you into a place of freedom and rest. This inward connection is where faith is born; it is the place where prayer is answered. Come and commune with Me in the secret place, which is even hidden from all trouble and stress. Come into My rest, says the Lord, and let Me establish you in peace and joy.

Matthew 6:6 But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.

One may have heard the alarm resound several times.  One may have finally checked the time; it may have been exactly 3:30 AM.  One may have hurried to one’s prayer closet.  One may not have grabbed one’s Bible and may have thought to grab it after beginning one’s prayer time.  One may not have wanted to be late or to miss one’s blessings for the day.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 3:30 AM.  One may have made it.  Hallelujah!  Thank You Jesus!  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 Acts 7.  One may have smiled knowing that the Lord had chosen this scripture and how perfect and awesome He may be.  Yesterday’s scripture for the day may have been Acts 8.  At that time, one may have thought how one may like Acts 7 as well.  Thank You Jesus!

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

Whirlwind

It’s All About Jesus!


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 1/13/11:

I had a vision of a group of people with each one caught in a mini tornado or a whirlwind. Each whirlwind separated the people from one another, which created a sense of isolation and loneliness. Then, I was reminded of the scripture verse in Hosea 8:7 “They sow the wind, and reap the whirlwind.” And, I realized that sowing the wind relates to being troubled, bitter, agitated, angry, and impatient. When we see our trouble as greater than God’s ability or willingness to bring solutions, we lack faith and are not trusting Him. That wind will reap a whirlwind or bring a storm that we won’t enjoy.

Isaiah 54:17 No weapon formed against you shall prosper.

Arise And Go Forth In The Strength And The Power Of My Kingdom

It’s All About Jesus!


THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — 11/29/2010: 
I hear the Lord saying, it is time for you to arise and go forward. It is time for you to get up and believe. It is time for you to receive a fresh anointing and a fresh baptism in the Holy Spirit. It is time for you to walk in kingdom purpose and kingdom power. It is time for you to release the living waters that will flow out of you and be the healing agent for those who are in need in these days. Arise and go forth in the strength and the power of My kingdom. Arise and meet the enemy and defeat him. Arise and bring honor and glory to your God for you are those that I send against the power of unrighteousness and against the powers of the darkness. So arise and receive the greatness of My light that is now shining forth upon this earth and into your world, says the Lord God. Arise!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 11/29/2010: 
Resist the temptation to be disagreeable. I tell you the truth that it will only end in conflict. And, conflict will create separation and division. Stop trouble before it starts by refusing to engage in disagreements. Forgive quickly and move on, says the Lord. This is necessary to your health physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

Matthew 6:15 But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

This Is The Time Of The Release Of My Glory Upon The Earth

It’s All About Jesus!


THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — 11/22/2010:

You must enter into the rest of God and that, My children, would mean that you have presented to Me those things which trouble you to such an extent of love and faith that you are able, indeed, to enter in.  For, it is in this rest that you shall be perfected, encouraged and renewed before My throne and in My presence.   You will find that your hope now becomes faith which brings forth the manifestation of My kingdom in your life — faith that receives the promise and compels you to walk in the glory of My kingdom.  So enter this rest today for it has been given to you  for such a time as this that you might be renewed, healed and perfected in My ways and by the power of My spirit.  Remember this, I am for you and not against you.  This is the time of the release of My glory upon the earth.  And, this release will come forth from you first.  For you have been in a place of transformation and changed from glory to glory by the presence of My Spirit.  Rise up with new hope.  Rise up with courage to believe that I have not only called you but that I will use you to bring forth the manifestation of My kingdom, says the Lord your God.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 11/22/2010:

Don’t worry about feeling a little out-of-pocket or strange. You are sensing the spiritual battle that rages around you as the enemy is jockeying for position and trying to regroup. You must stand on the firm foundation of truth, and refuse to allow lies to undermine your strength, says the Lord.

Psalms 27:1 The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?

Walk In Faith On This Path

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — Sept. 20, 2010:

I say to you that you are living in the days of revelation. It is important that My people have understanding. I’m not speaking about natural understanding, I am speaking of spiritual understanding. For with spiritual understanding comes the revelation of a way for you to escape the snares of the devil which hold you in bondage; a way of escape from those things in the world that hold you captive. So I say, escape. Escape the things that hold you in bondage; the things that trouble you; the worries and the fears, the anxieties and the condemnation that the enemy brings to you because I have already made the way. The path is open before you. Walk in faith on this path. Let this freedom and liberty come in this season, says the Lord, or you will miss that which I am about to do. The enemy is railing, the enemy is raging to keep you out of the revelation of My purposes and My will for your life. He has come to steal from you; to mock you; to taunt you, to bring death and darkness, and steal your light and life. So come to Me with faith, says the Lord most glorious.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Sept. 20, 2010:

As you walk in the Spirit and obey My leading, I will release you into a level of spiritual excellence that you have yet to discover. There will come a purity of heart that you could not achieve by the strength of your own flesh, but it will come by the power of My Spirit. Yield to this mighty work of spiritual clarity, says the Lord.

Zechariah 4:6b ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the LORD of hosts.

Take Those Things That Trouble You And Place Them Upon My Altar

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — Sept. 7, 2010:

Many of My people are laboring under the burden of anxiety because of their circumstances.  And because they are laboring under the spirit of anxiety they are not at rest and they are not at full strength.  So I say to those of you who find yourself in a time of anxiety, fear not, for I am with you.  Fear not for I have not departed from you.  Fear not for I will not abandon you nor will I leave you without My help.  Turn your eyes again with faith upon Me, says the Lord, and I will lift you up and I will be your strength.  I will become the very strength of your heart and the strength of your body.  For the times of refreshing come from the presence of the Lord.  In My presence your youth will be renewed and you will rise up on wings of eagles.  Take those things that trouble you and place them upon My altar where I can deal with them.  As long as you hold on to them and as long as you fret about them, and as long as you worry about them, they are not Mine, says the Lord God Almighty.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Sept. 7, 2010:

The enemy is doing his utmost to paralyze you with fear of failure and condemnation. Refuse to allow the devil to strip you of confidence to accomplish what I have set before you. As long as you are one with Me and your confidence is in Me, you will come through this attack in victory, says the Lord.

1 John 5:14 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — May 20, 2010:

Be obedient to My Word, for it will be your place of safety and protection in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation. You can do nothing about this generation, but you can do plenty to be people of the Spirit and truth. Maintain your integrity even when surrounded by darkness and trouble. You are people of light and not darkness, so walk in the light, says the Lord. Walk in the Spirit!

Philippians 2:14-16 Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast the word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain.

One may have awakened this morning.  One may have logged onto one’s computer and read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have been so encouraged.  Thank You Jesus!

One may have been struggling in one’s walk to do that which is right lately.  One may have knowingly sinned against the Lord.  It may have stemmed from offenses committed against one.  One may have decided to repeatedly share the offenses with several individuals.

One may seem to be getting a handle on one’s sin or either one may have sinned so much in this area, there may be nothing else to say.

Nonetheless, one may follow Jesus.  One may desire to be obedient to His word.  Please forgive one Lord Jesus for one’s rebellion, amen.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet one minute late.  Please forgive one Lord Jesus!  One may have sung praises to the Lord, confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have been led to Nehemiah 13.  Thank You Jesus!
