SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
The winds of change are blowing.  For those who have made Me their first love, the changes will be positive and fruitful.  But for others who have shaken their fists, the changes will only bring more difficulties and stress.  Sowing and reaping is a spiritual law, which cannot be broken.  What you give, whether good or bad, will come back to you multiplied.
 
Hosea 8:7a “They sow the wind and reap the whirlwind.”
 

Watch for the plans of the enemy to be revealed. Doug Addison

WHO IS IN CONTROL?
By Pastor Randy Brodhagen

Continue in My ways, continue in My Word, and you will be My disciples indeed, and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.  If you have any lack of understanding, ask Me, and I will show it by My Spirit, saith the Lord.  There will be no question that it is true, just, beautiful, or wonderful.  It will surely work.  This world tries to work things, but it is not doing very well, not doing very well at all.  As I have said, it will all come to nothing, for they do not acknowledge Me to direct their ways.  Even some of My people don’t acknowledge Me to direct their path.  That is why they do not have My abundant life that I have promised to bring, for they still lean to their own understanding.  They continue to try to work it out and make it happen, but it will not happen when I am not leading, I am not guiding, I am not directing.  They have not even really sought Me to work, nor desired Me to work because they still want to hold on to control.

Say aloud, “I have no control.”  Over anything.  Be free in Me, for I, the Lord, your God, has control over everything.  Everything.  Everything. Everything, saith the Lord.

Put away futility.  Put away nonsense.  Put away negativity.  Don’t say it did not work, but ask, “Why didn’t it work?”  Do not blame Me, do not blame whoever.  Don’t blame yourself even.  And certainly don’t blame the devil because he has no power, and he cannot do anything unless you choose to let him do what he wants to do.  Say, “I don’t choose that.  No way.  No way.  No way.  I choose to do what the Lord says, and will find out what He has to say, and then I will stand in agreement with Him and do whatsoever the Lord says.”

Hear that.  Bear witness to what I say this day in the presence of the Lord.  “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”  We are going to serve the Lord.  We are going to serve the Lord.

July 4, 2020. Today the USA celebrates freedom and becoming a nation. I was taught in church as a teenager that I was a free moral agent. God gave us the freedom to choose. This is all good. But at a sub- atomic, sub-molecular level, we are not free. We are connected. The choices we make affect others. God is asking, “Are your choices blessing others or hurting them?” He urges us, saying, “People, use your freedom to love not hate. I love you. Love others.”

James 2:8 (NKJV) “If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you do well.”  Bev Robinson
July 4, 2020. Who is your neighbor today? Is it just the ones who live next door? Is it your neighbor in the bustling marketplace? How about your neighbor on the backroads, city streets and freeways? Do you only show your kind behavior where the Church meets and live not so pleasantly outside those walls? Is your love conditional, especially to certain neighbors who behave differently than you? Do you see race, color, creed or ethnicity, or is everyone equal?
Acts 10:34 (NLT) “Then Peter replied, “I see very clearly that God shows no favoritism.”  Kevin Robinson
 
July 4, 2020. The freedom I provided for you is of utmost value. It was valuable enough that I sent My Son to die in order to ensure your freedom. Never take it for granted and never flaunt it before others. The freedom that comes from Me will never intrude into the freedom of others and it will never judge others who do not comply with your ideas. Let your freedom always be an example to those around you.
Galatians 5:13-14 (NASB) “For you were called to freedom, brethren; only do not turn your freedom into an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. For the whole Law is fulfilled in one word, in the statement, “YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.””  Jonas Bohlin
