SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS
Be done with regrets over things in the past that are matters of personal history. You are wasting your time and energy over things you can do nothing about. Instead, evaluate where you are now and what you can do to be a solid citizen in the Kingdom of Heaven. There are plenty of decisions to be made that will strengthen your righteous position, says the Lord.
Philippians 3:13 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.
There’s going to be a new song and sound in the air that will spark creativity. The Lord is opening the path of life to you and bringing a long-awaited release of supernatural joy. Even though things may appear difficult on the outside, God is working behind the scenes and creating a path for you. Watch for pathways of life and joy to open in the midst of struggles and trials. Don’t look at the surface, as God is working beneath it all to bring you into a new season. Doug Addison
October 9, 2018. This is a time for rest. This time of rest doesn’t mean disarmament. You are always to stay on alert. But let it be a time for ceasing of physical activity. Your body and mind needs rejuvenation. Don’t do any planning for the future. Now is the time to enjoy our relationship with no outside influence. When other events present themselves, let them roll off your mind. Do not respond. Take no action and they will simply dissipate. Rest.
Mark 6:31(NLT2) “Then Jesus said, “Let’s go off by ourselves to a quiet place and rest awhile.” He said this because there were so many people coming and going that Jesus and His apostles didn’t even have time to eat.” Bev Robinson
October 9, 2018. Seriously consider serving Me and others with gladness. I know you are getting frazzled by life itself. I want you to strongly think about helping out in your church or in some other volunteer capacity. Be a doer of My Word! Scripture says, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.” Be willing to get your hands dirty for the sake of My kingdom. Much joy is found in enthusiastically serving others.
Mark 10:43-45 (VOICE) “But that is not the way it will be among you. Whoever would be great among you must serve and minister. Whoever wants to be great among you must be slave of all. Even the Son of Man came not to be served but to be a servant-to offer His life as a ransom for others.” Kevin Robinson
October 9, 2018. I have forgiven the sin you have confessed and asked Me to forgive. In My eyes, that sin no longer exists. The only life that particular sin has in your life is the life given by you. Will you truly believe Me when I say that sin no longer has dominion in your life because the blood of My Son, Jesus, has washed that sin from your life? Live your life free from the bondage of past sin.
Hebrews 10:17-18 (NASB) “AND THEIR SINS AND THEIR LAWLESS DEEDS I WILL REMEMBER NO MORE.” Now where there is forgiveness of these things, there is no longer any offering for sin.” Jonas Bohlin
