SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS
Draw close to Me so that you can find a place of peace. The stress that you have endured is taking a toll and has created a sense of fear and dread. That is because you have taken matters into your own hands instead of trusting Me to inspire and direct your activities, says the Lord. You must quiet your mind and emotions as you rise up in the Spirit and relax. I am with you!
Deuteronomy 31:8 “And the Lord, He is the one who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.”
Taking time to give to those in need will open up a huge blessing for you. The Lord is avenging injustice and the books in Heaven are being balanced. Doug Addison

So many of My Children are facing challenges now with their health, with their finances, with their relationships, all across the board. My Children do not take advantage of My supernatural power over their circumstances. Many simply go on their own and attempt to solve these problems by themselves in their flesh with their own self will. They often make things even worse.
I encourage you, My Children, come to Me. Seek My face. Seek My answers. It is not My will for you to be sick or live in lack. It is not My will for marriages to break apart. The common thread that runs between all of your problems is the enemy himself. Remember he attacks whom he may. You must stand strong in prayer against him. If you are not standing fast in prayer, you are allowing him to come against you. If you are holding on to anger, or have idols in your life, these create openings for him to devour you.
Some teach falsely that I am the one serving up My wrath into your life. This is a lie from the enemy. I do allow My Children to face certain things in preparation for My Kingdom living. This is true, but much more often it is the enemy attacking you where you’ve failed to close an opening through prayer. And in some cases, I will even lay it on some of My Children’s hearts to fast if they are quiet enough to feel My Holy Spirit tugging at their hearts.
Pray for yourself and others. Praying in My Holy Spirit closes doors to the enemy. If you are persistent and consistent, your prayers will be heard, and will be answered. No fervent prayer of a righteous child of Mine is left ignored. Answers to your prayers are not always instant but I want all of My Children to understand that I hear every one of them. And your prayers offer Me the opportunity to supernaturally intervene on your behalf. Not one child of Mine will ever be ignored.
Expect good outcomes from your Father, My Loves. Your strength and healing are My will. Your financial well being is My will. Your healthy relationships are My will. And the prayers of My righteous will be heard and answered.
My Holy Spirit lives within all of My born-again Children. He is there to guide you. He is there to prop you up when you have no more energy to stand. He is there to aid you in battle, for your battle is not against flesh but with the insidious spirits of the evil one. The enemy works so hard to convince you otherwise. He convinces you that your authority in and through Me means nothing. He convinces you My supernatural ability to answer prayer is dead. Don’t believe his lies, My Loves. Keep your focus on Me. Stay in My Word. Focus on My promises. Realize this world is not your home, and that there is nothing here for you when it comes to what your world places value in.
Be infiltrated by My Holy Spirit upon taking your every step. Use your shield of faith to block out all of this world’s evil distractions. So, put your armor on, My Children, night and day. Walk in Me, walk in My perfection. Walk shielded from the wiles of the Devil.
I desire to prosper all of My Children in health, in wealth and in their relationships. Don’t separate Me from anything you are wishing to achieve. Let Me in. I desire to be a part of all that you wish to accomplish. Do not put Me in a box. Do not leave Me on your nightstand. Bring Me everywhere, for I have no limitations as to where I can accompany you.
Allow Me to reach others through you. Allow Me to shine My love through you. The more you submit to Me working through you, the better My outcomes will be.
Many run ahead and stumble. Hold your horses, My Loves, for you without Me equals nothing. Anywhere you go without Me is nowhere. Include Me. Include Me when you set your goals so they are Our goals and include Me in reaching them. Roadblocks are not always placed in front of you by Me. The enemy is always trying to find ways to stop you.
When you feel My peace, know that I want you to persevere. When you are not sure, be still and I will make My answers clear. You must rely on My peace that passes all of your understanding to receive My will for you. I will bring you My way every time if you let Me. Whatever lies ahead of you, when you allow My Holy Spirit to guide your steps, you will receive My protection. You will receive My good gifts. You will receive My supernatural favor – it will be poured out upon you.
Seek relationship with Me every moment of every day. If I am with you, no one can be against you.
I love you, My Children.
February 15, 2018. Yesterday was a new day and today is another new day. Keep it going like this. One day, you will realize the day isn’t new. But even then that day will be good. Blessings will still be coming. Blessings will continue to come, even though the day is not new. It is good to have breaks from new days. The days will level out and be mellow and steady. New days and mellow days should be pursued.

February 15, 2018. It’s time to do an evaluation of the progress of the various goals you have begun. Setting your sights upon objectives you want to accomplish is very admirable. The real accomplishment is seeing those goals fulfilled and achieved. How do I fit into the purposes you have for yourself? Are your goals My goals? Have you taken My counsel in regards to plans you are making? Goal setting is very honorable. Keep Me in the mix.

February 15, 2018. Rejoice, spin and twirl! Be happy! My love for you is overwhelming and never ending. I know that you have heard that I will never forsake you or give up on you. That is true; I will continue to pursue you until you respond to My desire for you to know Me intimately. You are the apple of My eye, and My desire is for you to trust Me with everything. You will not be disappointed.
