SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
Prepare to be challenged again in old places of testing where you fell short of the goal. You learned a few things last time, but there is still more to be done. The lessons you learn this time around will be of great benefit and will enhance your spiritual well-being and result in eternal victory.
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.
God is going to turn disappointments into joy. There is going to be a major change in the spiritual atmosphere in the middle of the month, and you will be able to hear God more clearly. Doug Addison
July 8, 2020. Fear not for I am with you. Let Me interpret this especially for you. Absolutely do not be afraid at the circumstances around you. I am right by your side. I will not let anything overwhelm you. It doesn’t matter how it appears, feels like, looks like or sounds like. There is nothing that comes against you that can overwhelm or defeat you. You have My power within you and My wisdom when you need to move.
Isaiah 41:10 (AMP) “Fear not [there is nothing to fear], for I am with you; do not look around you in terror and be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties, yes, I will help you; yes, I will hold you up and retain you with My [victorious] right hand of rightness and justice.” Bev Robinson
July 8, 2020. Satan is looking for those who are weak in their beliefs. He is looking for those who respond in fear or individuals where he can get some form of fainthearted reaction. It’s like the playground bully who’s looking for someone who is insecure so they can torment to get some type of reaction. The bully often picks on those who are different from the norm. Know who you are! Let your authority know and stand up for yourself.
2 Corinthians 5:17 (AMP) “Therefore if anyone is in Christ [that is, grafted in, joined to Him by belief in Him as Savior], he is a new creature [reborn and renewed by the Holy Spirit]; the old things [the previous moral and spiritual condition] have passed away. Behold, new things have come [because spiritual awakening brings a new life].” Kevin Robinson
July 8, 2020. Serve, serve and then again I say serve. My Son came for a life of service to those to whom He even gave His life. He is your example. He served those in the upper room; when was the last time you washed someone’s feet? Have you served others at the expense of your comfort? When you serve this way, you will change the world. It is My way of catapulting you to Kingdom living on earth.
Matthew 20:28 (NIV) “just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve and to give His life as a ransom for many.” Robin Robinson Bohlin
