SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS
Many have deviated from the path that I have chosen for them. They have done this by allowing their hearts to be divided by turning their attention to their trouble instead of drawing near to Me, says the Lord. I want My people to return to a place of spiritual safety and strength with single focus and renewed love.
Psalm 37:39 But the salvation of the righteous is from the Lord; He is their strength in the time of trouble.
God knows how to encourage us when we feel down and out. But we can be so focused on our difficulty that we can’t hear Him clearly. Your new assignment from God is to love people around you unconditionally. Doug Addison
November 7, 2018. It is time for rest, not a “lay down and go to sleep rest,” but a “slow down as you go” rest. Events have been happening fast. It is good that they go fast at times, but there also needs to be a slow down to catch your breath time. I operate in cycles. The sun comes up and the sun goes down. The tide comes in and the tide goes out. It is time for the cycle of rest.
Hebrews 4:1 (AMP) “THEREFORE, WHILE the promise of entering His rest still holds and is offered [today], let us be afraid [to distrust it], lest any of you should think He has come too late and has come short of [reaching] it.” Bev Robinson
November 5, 2018. Think of a yoke used by a farmer. He puts it on oxen for the purpose of pulling a plow to break up hardened ground. Find a like-minded believer, of the same sex. Join together as a team to work My fields in prayer and the harvest. Find someone who has excellent listening skills who, like you, is attentive to My voice and will do exactly as I command. Today’s world needs excellent and powerful teamwork.
Romans 9:15-16 (TPT) “He had every right to say to Moses: “I will be merciful to whomever I choose and I will show compassion to whomever I wish.” Again, this proves that God’s choice doesn’t depend on how badly someone wants it or tries to earn it, but it depends on God’s kindness and mercy.” Kevin Robinson
November 7, 2018. You are wound tighter than a top. If you wind any tighter, you might snap. This would not be beneficial to you or to those around you. Take a giant step back and BREATHE! I have given you all the grace you need for this season. There is nothing too complex for you to handle, therefore, the battle is in your mind. I remind you that I have given you the mind of Christ – so unwind!
1 Corinthians 2:16 (NIV) “for, “Who has known the mind of the Lord so as to instruct Him?”But we have the mind of Christ.” Robin Robinson Bohlin
