SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
In a vision I saw someone on a raft trying to paddle upstream and doing so with great difficulty and I heard the Lord say that this is the condition for those who are not in the flow of the Spirit.  Living and moving in the Spirit always makes life easier.  You would do well to be carried by the power of the Spirit of the Lord.  Otherwise, you will have to work against significant resistance.
 
Deuteronomy 33:27  The eternal God is your refuge and underneath are the everlasting arms; He will thrust out the enemy from before you and will say, ‘Destroy!’
 
When God releases solutions from Heaven, it takes belief to grab it and bring it into your life. God is bringing something new spiritually that will be evident in your life.  Doug Addison
July 31, 2020. What is going on is a much bigger event than you imagined. It seems to get bigger every time it is assessed. Be at peace. There is nothing you can do to speed it up. Get in the stream and ride. You are doing so well. You do not want to waste time resisting. It will not work anyway. You will just clog up the system that is already in effect.
John 16:33 (NLT2) “I have told you all this so that you may have peace in Me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”  Bev Robinson
 
July 31, 2020. When you became a Christian, you had a covenant/contract/promise bestowed upon you. A wealth/debt transfer took place. You agreed to accept the love and forgiveness of My Son Jesus Christ in return for your humility and submission. A lot of “give and take” took place. You were given everlasting life in exchange for your trust and reliance upon Him. Don’t let momentary worldly gain or short-lived pain dissuade you from receiving the entirety of My storehouse of blessings towards you and yours
John 3:16-17 (MSG) “This is how much God loved the world: He gave His Son, His one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in Him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending His Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again.”  Kevin Robinson
 
July 31, 2020. My knowledge can be your knowledge. My wisdom can be your wisdom. My understanding can be your understanding. My desire is to pass them to you! The only way to receive these things is by belief You simply cannot believe on your own strength – that would be futile. The way to receive these things is by belief and belief comes by hearing My Words. Saturate yourself in My Words and you will discover yourself walking in these things.
James 1:5-6 (TPT) And if anyone longs to be wise, ask God for wisdom and He will give it! He won’t see your lack of wisdom as an opportunity to scold you over your failures but He will overwhelm your failures with His generous favour. Just make sure you ask empowered by confident belief without doubting that you will receive. For the ambivalent person believes one minute and doubts the next. Being undecided makes you become like the rough seas driven and tossed by the wind. You’re up one minute and tossed down the next.  Robin Robinson Bohlin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
Come to Me and let us commune together in silence and sobriety  Take advantage of this time to draw near to Me and form a bond of unity so that we are of one mind and one heart.  If you seek Me, you will find Me because I am not far from you.  Accept the invitation and make the effort and you will be forever changed.
 
Psalm 30:5 For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.
 
It’s time to ask God to repay you for the losses of the past. Doug Addison
July 30, 2020. Do not get ahead of yourself. There is no need to rush. Everything is falling into its proper place. If you rush, events and materials will get jumbled You don’t want that. It will take more to get things in order than it will take to place them in the right place after you start. This was not your idea. You asked Me for help and I began. You were wise to ask. Now follow My wisdom to completion.
James 3:13 (NLT2) “If you are wise and understand God’s ways, prove it by living an honorable life, doing good works with the humility that comes from wisdom.”  Bev Robinson
 
July 30, 2020. Today marks the International Day of Friendship. Think about the friendship connections you’ve made in the past and present. I have allowed you to become friends with people all over the world on multiple continents. You have made a great impact upon the lives of others and they have done the same for you. FCM is located in Fort Worth, Texas. Texas means “friends” in the Caddo language. I hope and pray that you know you are My friends.
1 Peter 4:8-10 (TPT) “Above all, constantly echo God’s intense love for one another, for love will be a canopy over a multitude of sins. Be compassionate to foreigners without complaining. Every believer has received favour gifts, so use them to serve one another as faithful stewards of the many-colored tapestry of God’s favour.”  Kevin Robinson
 
July 30, 2020. I have promised to bless you and I have sealed that promise with an oath to Myself. There is no one greater than Myself in which to promise. Step into the promise that I made with My servant, Abraham. You have been grafted in to that promise by the blood of My Son. Place yourself in position to receive the blessing by declaring that My blessings will be showered onto My children and sealed with My promise.
Hebrews 6:13-14 (NASB) “For when God made the promise to Abraham, since He could swear by no one greater, He swore by Himself,  saying, “I WILL SURELY BLESS YOU AND I WILL SURELY MULTIPLY YOU.””  Jonas Bohlin

Word of the Lord July 29, 20

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
Many of you expect to respond to life’s circumstances and do things perfectly on the first try.  Everybody makes mistakes.  Trial and error produce understanding.  Do not be ashamed of what you deemed a failure.  You learned a valuable lesson that will make you a more productive human being.  The learning process will be of more value to you than getting everything right the first time.  Don’t give up.  Ask Me for the strength to endure.
 
Psalm 84:6-7 As they pass through the Valley of Baca [weeping], they make it a spring; the rain also covers it with pools. They go from strength to strength; each one appears before God in Zion.
 
Do not be afraid to take steps toward what God is speaking. Doug Addison
July 29, 2020. Put your guard up against complacency. At this time you are doing what you have wanted to do for a long time. This is good because you have believed Me for it and now it is happening. Enjoy where you are, but always keep your mind and emotions open for change. Be ready to follow Me wherever I go. This is why you guard against complacency. I know you will because you love to follow Me.
Matthew 8:23 (AMP) “And after He got into the boat, His disciples followed Him.”  Bev Robinson
 
July 29, 2020. Talking points, talking heads, gossip, slander, malice, outbursts of anger, strife, dissensions, factions and the list goes on. You don’t like to admit it, but you revel in hearing the latest buzz spoken about someone else. You know better than to subject yourself to such idle talk. Believe the best about your friend, foe and family Be a trendsetter for dynamic positivity. Be the catalyst like Me who radically transforms the world around you with loving kindness.
Matthew 12:36 (KJV) “But I say unto you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.”  Kevin Robinson
 
July 29, 2020. The dawn is breaking in your situation. Hold on just a short while longer. I know you are tired and that you have become somewhat disillusioned. I have been working behind the scenes on your behalf; I have your welfare in mind. Do not believe the enemy’s whispers that I have abandoned you. That simply isn’t true. Hold on a little while longer
2 Samuel 22:33 (NLT) “God is my strong fortress, and He makes my way perfect.”  Robin Robinson Bohlin

Word of the Lord July 28, 20

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
You have become weary in the present season and it seems as though things will never get better.  But I tell you honestly that the current circumstances will not last forever.  There is an end in sight.  Take this time to establish a living, vital relationship with Me.  Spiritual growth and understanding are the order of the day.  Come into My presence.  I will give you the strength to endure.
 
Galatians 6:9 And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.
 
Watch for the floodgates of Heaven to be opened over you. Doug Addison
July 28, 2020. I know there are some huge national problems running rampant. Join others in concerted prayer then walk in peace. But there are also small problems nagging you. They pop up at night when you are going to sleep. When they persist, write them down to unload your mind. Try to do it before going to bed. Self-control is a gift of My Spirit. Draw upon His power to keep your mind contained, not thinking about everything. Instead focus on Jesus.
Isaiah 26:3 (AMP) “You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You.”  Bev Robinson
 
July 28, 2020. Is there a mandate I have given you that you’re not heeding? Directives come in all shapes and sizes, so don’t get caught up in the comparison trap of trying to match the dictates I have given to someone else. I realize My orders are not the easiest elements to subject yourself to, but they are no less significant or greater in importance than what another believer has in store. Follow after Me and willingly do as I do.
John 5:19 (NIV) “Jesus gave them this answer: “Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by Himself; He can do only what He sees His Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does.”  Kevin Robinson
 
July 28, 2020. I have given you a very direct and important directive. Do not judge others. It is a very short command, yet so important. It may be difficult because everyone sees things from a perspective that is different from those around them. No one knows what is going on in another’s head or why they choose to do or say what they do. I have instructed you to be transformed and this is a needed area of transformation.
John 8:7 “But when they persisted in asking Him, He straightened up, and said to them, “He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.””  Jonas Bohlin

Word of the Lord July 27, 20

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
In a dream, I kept hearing the word codify, which means to arrange systematically according to a plan.  I believe the Lord is telling us to place ourselves under divine order according to His plan and purpose for each of us.  He is omnipotent, having unlimited power; omniscient, knowing all things; omnipresent, being everywhere at the same time.  He is Almighty God, and we can trust Him to lead, guide, direct and protect us when we are completely submitted to Him.
 
Psalm 100:3 Know that the Lord, He is God; it is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
 
God is bringing new spiritual oil of gladness. Doug Addison
July 27, 2020. Even as a child you had faith. You didn’t know it was Me you trusted, but you trusted. You knew everything would turn out all right. You continued trusting when you got into trouble. You always got out, as adults said, “by the skin of your teeth” There was a time when your faith dipped, but it was short lived. Now  is the time it needs to go into overdrive. But you will do that too.
Psalm 22:9-10 (NIV) “Yet You brought me out of the womb; You made me trust in You even at my mother’s breast. From birth I was cast upon You; from my mother’s womb You have been my God.”  Bev Robinson
 
July 27, 2020. The word for today is two-fold. It is the word “current.” As an adjective it means: new; present; or most recent. As a noun, current means something that flows, as a stream or moving in a certain direction. How am I being “current” today in regards to your latest evidence and witness of My goodness in your life. Testimonies of yesteryear are definitely wonderful. Attest of how My mercies are fresh and current each and every day.
Acts 4:33 (NOG) “With great power the apostles continued to testify that the Lord Yeshua had come back to life. God’s abundant good will was with all of them.”  Kevin Robinson
 
July 27, 2020. If it’s in My Word – you can believe it. I want you to say it back to Me: “If it’s in Your Word – I believe it!” That is faith. Faith is believing in something you cannot see, but you know is true. I am God and I do not lie. So when I say it – you can believe it! Jesus was a man, when He said it – you can believe. Jesus IS the Word.
Numbers 23:19 (NASB) “God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent; has He said, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?”  Robin Robinson Bohlin

Word of the Lord July 26, 20

THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS:
Stay in touch with Me so that you can know what I am doing and understand the directives that I give you for your journey.  Don’t try to do your own thing.  If you try to live without Me you will wind up in the weeds of this life, make wrong judgments and make mistakes.  When you stay connected to Me, I can guide you through perilous times and the maze of circumstances that are ahead of you.  Be one with Me.
 
Psalm 91:2-6  I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
 
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
The current environment seems to be untenable and out of control.  However, as the external noise gets louder, the more you need to quiet your own soul and seek to be at peace.  Determine to abide in the Spirit where the outside world cannot penetrate.  You are safe and stable in My presence.
 
Psalm 16:11 You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
As you take risks and try new things, the payoff will be big. Doug Addison
July 25, 2020.  Do not think this is something you can fix. You have a propensity to take on something, thinking you can work things out for the benefit of all. It is true that you are good at certain things. But it is also true that your fixing can mess things up. It is good to assess events honestly. It is how you see what is happening. Someone else sees things differently. For this reason leave this with Me.
Romans 8:29-30 (ESV) “For those whom He foreknew He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, in order that He might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those whom He predestined He also called, and those whom He called He also justified, and those whom He justified He, also glorified.”  Bev Robinson
 
July 25, 2020. Throughout your life, there have been instances where you have searched in vain to find answers to problems you were facing. In some cases, you have repeated the answerable steps over and over again in your mind and sometimes in the literal sense with no meaningful answer. Coming to peace with unresolved questions can be and is very disheartening. I am in the midst of all that is happening. Collect what you will and gradually move onward.
Jeremiah 17:14 (MSG) “God, pick up the pieces. Put me back together again. You are my praise!  Kevin Robinson
 

The instructions you have been given were clear and precise. Follow those instructions very carefully. Do you trust the One, Me, who provided those? You have done very well up to now in the situation I refer to, but you have grown weary of the restrictions that your situation requires. The best always awaits you when you follow My plan. I will never lead you astray in anything I tell you to do.

Deuteronomy 8:7-9 (NASB) “For the LORD your God is bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, flowing forth in valleys and hills; a land of wheat and barley, of vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive oil and honey; a land where you will eat food without scarcity, in which you will not lack anything; a land whose stones are iron, and out of whose hills you can dig copper.”  Jonas Bohlin

Word of the Lord July 25, 20

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
Refuse to get absorbed into the flood of dissipation.  It is beneficial for you to choose righteousness in every situation.  You know the difference between right and wrong, good and evil.  When you live in unity with Me, your responses to life will be an extension of My will.  Holiness is a beautiful thing.
 
Hebrews 5:14 But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
God is bringing revelation for healing and advancement. Doug Addison
July 24, 2020. You have all the time you need even though it doesn’t feel like it. Don’t get in a hurry or mistakes will be made. Just stay on the path you are on. Do the next thing on the list and stay committed to the task. Others are depending on you to do your job. They are working just like you are. It will all come together. You will see and understand why you should not worry.
Philippians 4:6-7 (NLT2) “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.”  Bev Robinson
 
July 24, 2020. Too much time is being wasted on things you will never get around to seeing. I understand how planning plays a pivotal part in the preparations of upcoming events. As you know, time is of the essence, but you have come to the place where you are just spinning your wheels and going nowhere. Take care of the present in the here and now. Appreciate what lies before you and focus primarily on what I am doing now.
Matthew 6:34 (MSG) “Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.”  Kevin Robinson
 
July 24, 2020. Things are out of control right now – even to the point of hysteria! Do you know all through the ages, events like these have happened? There is nothing new under the sun. How you react to these situations is of paramount importance. Will you be found going along with the crowd in fear, or will you stand and be My Peace Ambassadors? Swim against the current and be a leader of Mine during this time. Do not be common.
Ecclesiastes 1:9 (NLT) “What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.”  Robin Robinson Bohlin

Word of the Lord July 24, 20

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
I could hear the ticking of the clock–tick tock, tick tock–and I heard the Lord say:  The passing of time is a fact of life.  You cannot change it.  You cannot go back to another time or skip ahead.  Each moment has its own problems and pleasures.  The only thing that can change is how you perceive it and what you do with it.  You would do well to take it as it comes and live every minute in the power of the Holy Spirit and in union with Me.
 
2 Corinthians 4:17-18  For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
You may need to reach out for wisdom and advice. Doug Addison
July 23, 2020. A change of mind is coming. This is something you have wondered about for a long time. You have not known who to consult with to get clarity on the matter. It will come from a source you least suspect. You will be going completely in another direction. And then voila there it is. Stop and listen to the conversation going on. You will hear exactly what you need to know from Me.

John 10:27 (NKJV) “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them and they follow Me.”  Bev Robinson

 
July 23, 2020. The coronavirus is real and sadly there has been some loss of life. So much of what you are seeing is hype, a publicity stunt and a bunch of hysteria conjured up by the powers that be because of hidden agendas. Influenza has done greater harm over tens of years and no societies have gone to pieces. Shine the light of My love in whatever case in point you encounter. Grant others grace, space, understanding and tolerance.
Romans 8:39-39 (NASB) “For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Kevin Robinson
 
July 23, 2020. You have said to yourself and others that you just cannot believe for the signs, wonders and miracles that are yours. I understand. Peter had much the same thoughts as he was called to be a fisher of men. He could not believe Me for the big catch of fish, but he could trust Me enough to take a very small step of belief to cast the nets again. Can you trust Me to take the first step?
Luke 5:5 (NASB) “Simon answered and said, “Master, we worked hard all night and caught nothing, but I will do as You say and let down the nets.” Jonas Bohlin

Word of the Lord July 23, 20

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
When things become too complicated, seek Me for wisdom.  Things aren’t as complex as they seem.  The solution is often found in simplifying your process.  I will lead you through this maze of uncertainty, but you need to trust Me to reveal what you need to understand.  Quiet your soul and find your place of peace so that you can be spiritually aware.
 
1 Peter 3:11 Let him turn away from evil and do good; let him seek peace and pursue it.
New anointed ideas, strategies and sounds are flowing from Heaven. Doug Addison
July 22, 2020. Keep walking as you now are. You are on My path. It is more supernatural than natural. There will be some events to come that will try to get you off the path. Stand your ground. Do not weaken. Keep your mind, will and emotions on Me and My ways. You will begin to see things happen that you have longed to see. Some of them will be in you. Stay the course.
1 Corinthians 2:9 (NKJV) “But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.””  Bev Robinson
 
July 22, 2020. Get specific in your prayer life. Write down the details of what you are believing for Me to fulfill. Sure there are times when you can pray generalized prayers, but I want you to itemize your prayer requests in detail. Don’t be afraid to ask Me for what your heart desires. Having done so, focus your devotion toward being content with My ways. Dedicate yourself to pleasing Me and watch your petitions be fulfilled in due time.
Psalm 37:4 (NOG) “Be happy with Yahweh, and He will give you the desires of your heart.”  Kevin Robinson
 
July 22, 2020. The attacks against you have been enormous – you feel as if you are in the mouth of a lion. You feel for certain that the teeth will clamp down on you and you will be suffocated. The truth is that no weapon formed against you shall prosper. Rise up, oh man, what can the enemy do? His weapons are already defeated. See the weapons as fleshly and not in the spiritual realm. In the Spirit, you are free!

2 Corinthians 10:4 (TPT)”For although we live in the natural realm, we don’t wage a military campaign employing human weapons, using manipulation to achieve our aims. Instead, our spiritual weapons are energized with divine power to effectively dismantle the defenses behind which people hide.”  Robin Robinson Bohlin

Word of the Lord July 22, 20

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
Beloved, it is My desire that you separate yourself from the works of the flesh and allow My Spirit to dwell in you richly.  Become one with Me and be renewed and strengthened by the power of My presence.  Choose the path of righteousness, peace and joy.  Stand firmly on the rock of salvation.
 
Galatians 5:19-23 Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.
 

Watch for double financial blessing to come your way. Doug Addison

The Lord woke me up and we had this talk:
I asked the Lord, “What shall we do?” He replied, “Wait patiently on Me.” I said the people are asking me, “Is the Lord coming back?” He replied, “Yes, I am coming, wait patiently on Me. I have everything under control and I am bringing everything together to the fullness of days. As it was in the time of Judah’s captivity, I told the people that I knew the plans that I had for them to prosper them-plans for good not evil, to give them hope and a future, so it is now.

I told them to go on with their lives-everything is different-but I am the same! Build houses settle down -enjoy your life in Me and with others. Do not be afraid of the changes in the world for I have not changed. I am still the same. Put your trust in Me. Do not be conformed to or by the world and the circumstances. But be transformed by My Spirit and My Word as you draw near to Me. I am drawing you close to Me.

This world is passing away, but My Word and My Spirit and My people shall never pass away! We will all be together forever! So rejoice in Me always for I am your Hope and Future. Draw near to Me and I will draw near to you.”

Friends, the Lord is with us!
Love in Jesus,
Pastor Randy Brodhagen

July 21, 2020. You read stories in My Word that seem almost too good to be true. But they are true. They are wonderful to think about. These miracles are still available today. Remember how you gave your life to Me and you would not entertain any inkling of unbelief. Continue in that vein. Believe and do not entertain at all any unbelief. Keep asking, keep seeking and keep believing. You will see what you long to see.
Hebrews 11:6 (NKJV) “But without belief it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”  Bev Robinson
 
July 21, 2020. You have believed that all the stuff you are going through has to be done by your lonesome self. The mindset of “me, myself and I” is faulty thinking. Interestingly, it gives you a God complex. It would do you good to occasionally ask for help. Be careful about being a xenophobe of My Church. Would you judge Me if I were different from your biased assumptions? You are meant for the Church and the Church for you.
Romans 12:4-5 (NOG) “Our bodies have many parts, but these parts don’t all do the same thing. In the same way, even though we are many individuals, Christ makes us one body and individuals who are connected to each other.”  Kevin Robinson
 
July 21, 2020. There is nothing too difficult for Me. I am God over all creation. I love and care for My sheep. Do not be discouraged when things do not happen as you planned or prayed. It is not a lack of belief. You see in part, only in your moment. I see the end from the beginning and everything in between. Believe all of My Word, speak positive words, declare that the impossible is indeed possible. Trust Me!
Isaiah 46:10 (NASB) “Declaring the end from the beginning, And from ancient times things which have not been done, Saying, ‘My purpose will be established and I will accomplish all My good pleasure.'”  Jonas Bohlin
