SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Beloved, refuse to lament over what has already been done or become a victim of the past. Nothing you do will change it or make it better, but you can let it go and launch yourself into this new day that is filled with possibilities and opportunities to know Me better and to understand My kingdom with greater clarity. This is a day to forgive and be forgiven, says the Lord. Draw near to Me!

Philippians 3:13-14 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus

Take time to evaluate where you’ve been and to remember the things that you learned through your experiences.  Do not give in to the temptations that come for you to be a victim of the difficulties you have endured, but rather use those lessons as a platform and a launching pad into greater wisdom and spiritual effectiveness.  Those things have made you stronger and have the potential to increase your faith if you maintain a proper perspective, says the Lord.

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

Walk In The Faith That I Have Given You And Cause It To Grow Exceedingly In These Days

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS:

Let faith arise in your soul.  Let it rise to new heights.  Now you examine it; examine the faith with which you are fighting the good fight.  Examine the faith that allows you to prevail.  And, as you examine it in these days, you will come to a greater position of faith.  For, the faith that I have given you indeed was a measure, but you have nurtured it, you have examined it, you have carried it, you have walked with it, you have used it, and it now becomes your weapon. It becomes a weapon that causes you to prevail in times that are hard.  It causes you to come forth with a shout of victory rather that with the wailing of the unvictorious.  Come forth, not as a victim, but as a victor.  Walk in the land that I have provided for you.  Walk in the faith that I have given you and cause it to grow exceedingly in these days.  It is a time in which the seeds of faith that are planted in your heart and are nurtured by the anointing will come and produce a harvest in your life, says the Lord God Most High.  

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

It is more important than ever to keep your composure.  Continue to seek My face and maintain spiritual vitality.  I am your hope and your very present help in times of trouble.  Depend on Me to give you the wisdom you need that will bring you to the heart of every issue and give you direction for your next step.  Be courageous and bold; do not be afraid, says the Lord, for I am with you.  


Psalms 46:1  God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

Don’t Let The Devil Gain Any Ground In Your Heart

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns 12/22/11:

The enemy has risen up with a vengeance to destroy your faith and bring you down to the depths of despair. Don’t let the devil gain any ground in your heart. He will take advantage of your self-focus and will take you down in condemnation. You are not a victim of his schemes; you are designed and empowered to be victorious over all the work of evil against you. Rise up in your most holy faith, and stand your ground against these attacks by maintaining your position in My Spirit, says the Lord. Do not be afraid.

Colossians 2:13-15 And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 3:42 AM.  Please forgive one Lord 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 Luke 12 – Jesus Warns About Hypocrisy.  Thank You Jesus!

I Have Equipped You To Accomplish All That Is Before You

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

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

Even as you are pushing through to bring closure to the things of the past, your spiritual landscape is changing. Stay with Me, says the Lord. Don’t get stuck in your desire to put your feet up and take a break. To do so would keep you from maintaining the spiritual flow. Refuse to entertain the idea that you are a victim of life’s demands; just keep moving. I have equipped you to accomplish all that is before you.

Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

One may have awakened to the sound of one’s alarm only to fall back asleep.  One may have awakened minutes before 5:00 AM.  One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have been encouraged.  Thank You Jesus!

You Can Do This, I Am With You

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — March 12, 2010:

Face every challenge head-on. If you try to take the easy way out, it will backfire on you. Do what it takes to break through. You won’t want to do what is necessary, but it’s the only way to get through your dilemma. Refuse to open the door to the enemy by murmuring, complaining, or becoming a victim of your circumstances. You can do this, and I am with you to give the necessary wisdom and strength for you to gain the victory, says the Lord.

Psalms 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

Actively Take Control Of Your Mind And Do Not Allow Negative Thoughts Or Emotions To Rule!

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — January 15, 2010:

Beloved, refuse to allow your emotional responses to circumstances make you feel like you are losing ground. Discouragement will disable you and keep you bound by infirmity, making you feel like a victim. But, I have given you power and authority to break free and stay free from everything that would hold you, says the Lord. Actively take control of your mind, and do not allow negative thoughts or emotions to rule.

2 Corinthians 10:4-6 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.

One may have awakened early in the morning after 1:00 AM and may have done some writing.  One may have laid back down for a quick nap before one’s prayer closet time.  Around 3:25 AM one may have logged onto one’s computer to check the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  One may have been encouraged by today’s message.

At 3:30 AM one may have entered one’s prayer closet.  One may have sung praises to Lord and began to pour one’s heart out to Jesus.  Right in the midst of one’s outpouring, one broke out into praise with a song.  One may have been so glad, grateful and thankful that Jesus was a very present help.

One may have confessed one’s sins and thanked the Lord. One may not remember praying for a passage of scripture for today.  One may have prayed (as one may have been writing this afternoon) asking the Lord to help one remember, nothing came to one.  Usually, if one forgets the passage of scripture for the day, the Holy Spirit will bring it back to one.

One may have left one’s prayed closet around 4:30 AM.  One may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Lord, thank you for hearing and answering each prayer request according to your perfect will, in Jesus’ name, amen.

One may want to thank God right now for His goodness.  Yesterday one may have been at an all time low.  One may have anticipated certain events taking place and thought that they could not be changed.  Well Jesus has done just that.  He may have come to one’s rescue and changed some major issues.  Thank you Jesus!

One may have asked the Lord why a certain event could not take place another way. This very question that one may have posed may have been the Lord’s answer to a major concern.  Wow!  One may Hope this means that one may have the mind of Christ.  Lol!  One may be going through, yet, obstacles may be falling by the wayside.  Thank you Jesus!

One may have gotten great news yesterday afternoon concerning an issue that may have been going on for more than a year.  Another hurdle cleared.  Thank you Jesus!

Some things one may not know how they will unfold.  One must trust the Lord and this may be the hardest thing for one to do right now.  One may not know how the blessings or help will come.  One may keep one’s spiritual eyes and ears open.

There may be major decisions that may take place in the near future.  Lord, please lead and guide one and one’s family every step of the way, in Jesus’ name one may pray, amen.

No Longer Be Weak, But Be Strong In The Lord And The Power Of His Might!

It’s All About Jesus!


Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — January 11, 2010:

This is what I want you to do. Walk in My presence; walk in My glory and power. If you walk in the glory all things will be possible unto you and My anointing will come upon you.  You are a kingdom child, and you will receive all the blessings that I have for you. Get up today. Lift up the hands that hang down. No longer be weak, but be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. No longer consider yourself a victim. but consider yourself more than a conqueror, victorious in all things. Rise up to new levels and to new heights, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — January 11, 2010:

I speak to you about your giving, and many of you, My people, have allowed your tithing to be no more than religious duty. Beloved, I want you to give as an act of extreme worship. Give with thanksgiving and joy, for it is My desire to honor your spirit of generosity, and it is My delight to open the windows of heaven and pour out My blessing upon you, says the Lord.

Malachi 3:10-12 Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this,” says the LORD of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, so that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground, nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field,” Says the LORD of hosts; and all nations will call you blessed, for you will be a delightful land,” says the LORD of hosts.

One may have awakened this morning to the sound of the alarm at 3:00 AM.  One may have reset it for 3:20 AM.  One may have gotten up at the sound of the second alarm. One may have proceeded to one’s computer, logged on and read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.

One may have read in the message, “Lift up the hands that hang down.”  One may have done exactly that and prayed, receiving today’s message and all that the Lord has for one.  One may have been encouraged.

While in one’s prayer closet one may have remembered the unusual Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin that was sent out yesterday, which was Sunday.  It may have been unusual because the Spirit of Prophecy messages may come normally during the weekdays and not on weekends.

There was a section in the message that required one to take action and do those very things.  One could not remember what they were and purposed in one’s heart to return to the message and to do whatever it may have prompted one to do.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 3:30 AM.  One may have sung praises to the Lord, confessed one’s sins and prayed for the sick.  While standing, with one’s face turned towards heaven and one’s bible lifted high, one may have asked the Lord to lead one to a passage of scripture that may be for one and those who may read this blog.  One may have been led to Job 18.  Powerful!  Thank you Jesus!

One may have left one’s prayer closet at 4:30 AM and logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Thank you Lord for answering one’s prayers and the prayers of those who may have left prayer requests, according to your perfect will, in Jesus’ name, amen.
