SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
Many of you have persevered through dark days. You have pressed on even when you didn’t feel like doing so. You have been strong and unwavering in your faith and have continued to trust Me. You have picked yourself up when no one was there to pick you up. You have strengthened yourself and been courageous in the face of correction. You will be rewarded, says the Lord.
Hebrews 12:11 Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.
As you slow down, you will hear the voice of God much more clearly. Doug Addison
HOPE: A Quiet Resting Place
(Heb:4:9. NKJV) states, “There remains therefore a Rest, for the people of God”
(Poem) “A Quiet Resting Place”
Abba says” There is a ” Place of Quiet Rest” A place I choose My child for I know best. It is a beautiful place, beside a quiet stream; a place where you can reflect; a place where you can dream and experience the Awesome Presence and Peace of a Loving God!
In this quiet resting place; you will be restored and refreshed, as you rest your head upon My breast! It is a place of Joy, a place of Peace; a place where My Presence is and will not cease! It is a place you can go and find rest for the soul and be at ease.
A place where you can release the cares of this world into the Hands of a Loving God, who is able to sustain and restore. I patiently wait for you to surrender your all to Me, the One, who alone; can deliver you from the hands of our enemy!
I continue to fight for you, as you abide in Me; although the battle has already been won, on the Cross at Calvary! I will hide you in My Pavilion and lift you high above your enemies; I will shield you from the fiery attacks, from the storms of life; until they pass and you, My child; are safe in My Arms, at last! (In the Secret Place!)
His Joy Bell
November 27, 2019. Stop seeing the people with whom you have had conflict as the enemy. Satan is all about distorting reality and bringing disharmony among even among the best of friends. It is like finding a needle in a haystack. Satan can take the most minuscule molecule and twist it for his advantage. He distorts the air frequencies so you cannot differentiate between what is real and what is not. Satan is your foe, not your sister or your brother.
Ephesians 6:12-13 (NASB) “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.” Kevin Robinson
November 27, 2019. Some of you are feeling bullied and even picked on. Those who have a spirit of intimidation have targeted you and you have become even fearful of being around certain people. I tell you today that if you know who you are – you can never be intimidated. Use this time for self-discovery; Jesus knew who He was and could stand up during the harshest criticism. His identity was established. Celebrate who I have made you to be.
Matthew 5:11-12 (MSG) “Not only that-count yourselves blessed every time people put you down or throw you out or speak lies about you to discredit Me. What it means is that the truth is too close for comfort and they are uncomfortable. You can be glad when that happens-give a cheer, even!-for though they don’t like it, I do! And all heaven applauds. And know that you are in good company. My prophets and witnesses have always gotten into this kind of trouble.” Robin Robinson Bohlin
