Simply Be What I Have Created You To Be And Surrender Completely To My Purposes In And Through You

It’s All About Jesus!

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.”

Be Still And Discern What It Is That Hinders Your Walk In The Spirit

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Be still and discern what it is that hinders your walk in the Spirit. There are people you must forgive and issues that you have to release in order to be free enough to move in the flow of My Spirit unhindered. But, you must get quiet enough to see and understand how important it is for you to stay clear spiritually, mentally and emotionally. Otherwise, there will be things in the natural realm that will siphon off your physical and spiritual energy. Now is the time to deal with all unrighteousness, says the Lord.

Isaiah 55:7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the LORD, and He will have mercy on him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.

Speak To This Mountain In My Name

It’s All About Jesus!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Rise up in the realm of the spirit and speak to your mountain, that mountain that looms large before you that you do not know how to get around or over. I have given you the authority to move it out of your way so that you can progress unhindered. There are things that are beyond your ability to deal with in the natural realm, but all things are possible with Me, says the Lord. Speak to this mountain in My name.

Mark 11:23 “For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.”

Freedom Awaits!

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

Watch as I bring answers to long-awaited questions and conclusions to unresolved problems. I am offering opportunities to put things right so that you can move forward unhindered. You cannot receive the fullness of My blessings and provision without resolution of old issues, says the Lord. And, I have opened the door and made a way for you to deal with those things that have hampered your progress and kept you bound. Freedom awaits!

Matthew 18:15-17 “Moreover if your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone. If he hears you, you have gained your brother. But if he will not hear, take with you one or two more, that _by the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established. And if he refuses to hear them, tell it to the church. But if he refuses even to hear the church, let him be to you like a heathen and a tax collector.”

One may have got up after the second alarm.  It may have been around 3:25 AM.  One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have asked the Lord to reveal to one any issues one may have that need to be resolved.  One may not have been able to think of any.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet.  One may have praised the Lord with song, confessed one’s sins and thanked the Lord.  One may have prayed for a passage of scripture.  One may have been led to Psalms 19.  Thank you Jesus.

At 4:30 AM, one may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Thank you Lord Jesus for answering each prayer request according to your perfect will, in Jesus’ name, amen.

Issues may have come up today and one may have thought, “Why?”  One may have remembered that one asked the Lord to reveal where one may have issues that need to be resolved.  Thank you Jesus!

One may have gone to the eye doctor today.  One may have had a strong desire to get one’s eyes checked.  One may have asked one’s sister for their assistance in order to keep one’s appointment.  One may have shared with one’s sister that one had to go and could not reschedule.

Years ago one may have had one’s eyes checked and may have been told by the optician to have one’s eye’s checked at least every two years.  The individual may have said that one may be a candidate for glaucoma.  They may have given one the details on what they may have seen and the reason for concern.

The individual at the doctor’s office may have used an instrument to check one’s eyes for glaucoma.  Upon checking one’s right eye, the individual may have said, “Wait a minute, that can’t be right.”  They may have checked the other eye and said, “What’s wrong with this thing?”  They may have shared the results after several attempts to get accurate readings.  One’s levels may have been well above the normal range, indicating glaucoma.  One may have shared that a relative may have glaucoma.

The doctor came in and said that they would do more tests with a different instrument.  One may have shared that one may know of only one relative that may have glaucoma.  The doctor may have said, ”It has to start somewhere.”  One could not help but think of generational curses.  One may have prayed to the Lord silently, one may have asked Him to please heal one right now in Jesus’ name, amen.

The doctor may have conducted all of the necessary tests.  The doctor may have told one that one’s test results were normal.  They may have said that something was a little large but they were not concerned about it.  The doctor may have scheduled one for a visit in three months to do a routine follow up and to rule out glaucoma.

Thank you Jesus!  One may believe You answered that prayer right then and there and healed one with your healing power.  Lord you are so awesome!  One may be truly grateful.  Thank you Jesus!

Call Forth A Clearing Of The Airways!

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Nov. 18, 2009:

The enemy has launched an attack against you, My people, to cause confusion, misunderstandings, miscommunication and hindrances. You must rise up in the spirit realm and shut the door on this attack and call forth a clearing of the air ways. And, I will give you clarity and open the door and clear the way for you to proceed unhindered, says the Lord. Be diligent to wage a good warfare. Victory is assured.

1 Timothy 1:18 This charge I commit to you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies previously made concerning you, that by them you may wage the good warfare.

One may have awakened by the alarm at 3:00 AM.  One may have gotten up right away and started cleaning the bathroom and confessing one’s sins.  One may have changed some things around, like getting up earlier so that one may have more time with the Lord.

After cleaning and confessing one’s sins, one came out of the bathroom and read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  One gathered one’s Bible, notebook and computer chair and headed for the bathroom.

Upon returning, one set the alarm for 4:30 AM.  One made a conscious effort to pray for the clearing of the airways.  One began to praise the Lord with Song.  One prayed for the sick and then one asked the Lord to lead one to the scripture that He wanted one to read.

One may have opened one’s Bible and one’s eyes fell on Ruth 4:1.  One started reading the chapter.  One asked the Lord while reading if He wanted one to read the whole chapter.  One may have felt compelled to read to the end of Chapter 4.

One then got quiet and began to press into Jesus.  One may have thought many thoughts and fidgeted during the entire time.

While one may have been sitting there a thought came to one’s mind that the Lord was not going to show up.  One thought, ”What if He does, what are you going to do?”  One thought, “To be humble and just accept whatever the Lord gives one.”  One wondered how much time one had left as well.

The alarm may have gone off and it was time for one to leave.  One sat there for a moment with disbelief and disappointment at how the time spent turned out.

One left the bathroom.  One may have been upset.  One thought about how one made an effort to get up earlier even though one had not felt like it.  One thought to give up, throw in the towel.

The thoughts kept coming quicker than one could think.  Then one had an epiphany, “This is a “Lying Spirit!”  One began to literally laugh at all the accusations one may have heard in one’s head.

One may have dismissed all the negative thoughts.  One logged onto the website to pray for prayer requests.  When one finished, one laid down to go to sleep.  The disappointment, anger and accusations were not there.

One may look forward to trying again tomorrow morning.  Thank you Jesus, for everything.

For He Is Worthy To Be Praised!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — October 13, 2009:

You have made it over the hump. The worst is behind you, and now you can progress unhindered. I have brought you through just as I had promised, says the Lord. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad. Rise up in praise, honor and glory to the Holy One of Israel, Almighty God, for He is worthy to be praised. Open your heart and let your words pour fourth in adoration and thanksgiving. Let the angels rejoice with you and give thunderous praise. Amen.

Psalms 118:24 This is the day the LORD has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

One may have awakened at 3:00 AM but did not get up until 3:15 AM.    One may have logged on and checked for the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  It may have loaded as one retrieved one’s e-mail.  One may have read the prophecy and thought, “Lord are you talking to me?”

One went into the bathroom and began to clean it.  One knew that one would not be done by 3:30 AM, so one sat the alarm so that one would know to began singing and praising the Lord at the appointed time.

One may have started singing while cleaning.  After the first song, one may have thanked the Lord.  One may have been excited about the prophecy message for today.  One may have thought about the language the Lord may have used, “Made it over the hump.”  One smiled and said, “Lord you are so cool.” One may have been overjoyed by the thought of being over the hump, unhindered and most of all, making it through.  The Lord said to be glad, so one was glad.  One sang a few more songs and thanked the Lord again.

One confessed one’s sins and prayed for the sick.  One finished by speaking in tongues.  One left at exactly 4:30 AM.  One logged onto a particular website and prayed for individuals who had left prayer requests.

This morning one’s son may have been lying in bed and he somehow turned and hurt his spine to the point that he cried out and was afraid to move.  One may have thought that he was playing at first.  When realize that he was serious, one may have reached down, laid hands on the individual and prayed for Jesus to heal him.

One may have been thanking the Lord for healing one’s son.  One’s son may have said, “How many times are you going to say amen?”  One may have said, “Never interrupt someone when they are praying and thanking the Lord for what He has done.”  One may have thought that this prayer was a sure miss.  At that moment one’s son may have said, ”The pain is gone!”  One may have looked at one’s son with disbelief written all over one’s face.”  One’s son may have said, “Really, it just went away.”  One may have thought, wow, that was fast.  One may have thought about how gracious and merciful the Lord may be.  One remembered the Lord’s word from the prophecy, “unhindered.”

Thank you Lord Jesus, for everything, in Jesus’ name.
