SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS: You can make significant headway if you will take advantage of opportunities presented as well as the help that is available to you. Help will come both naturally and supernaturally. I am your very present help, and you can call on Me and lean on Me.
Matthew 11:28-30 “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
September 16, 2020. Your heart is full of thanksgiving. My child, this is good to Me and pleases Me, but it is also very good for you. Thoughts and emotions of thanksgiving release endorphins in your body which bathe your cells in good biochemicals. It promotes health for your whole body. Whatever is happening in your life, do all you can to stay in a state of thanksgiving. My Word says, “In everything give thanks.” I am working on your behalf, precious one.
1 Thessalonians 5:18 (AMP) “Thank [God] in everything [no matter what the circumstances may be, be thankful and give thanks], for this is the will of God for you [who are] in Christ Jesus [the Revealer and Mediator of that will].” Bev Robinson
September 16, 2020. You are in essence paralyzing yourself. Because of that pesky old issue of fear, you are self-anesthetizing. You wonder why you are stuck and not going anywhere? It is the dread of what may or may not happen that is keeping you motionless. Satan has convinced you that you will lose in every way imaginable. He knows you better than you know yourself from a fleshly perspective. Counter his ploys with trust and belief. Believe!
Hebrews 11:6 (NOG) “No one can please God without belief. Whoever goes to God must believe that God exists and that He rewards those who seek Him.” Kevin Robinson
September 16, 2020. For soon you will see signs in the heavens and on the earth below; all creation is groaning for Christ’s return. Look up and see the marvelous happenings; do not be caught sleeping or unaware. Be as the virgins who have their lamps full and are awaiting the Bridegroom. Are you keeping watch, are you preparing yourself for His return? Bring others with you before the door shuts – now is the time!
Matthew 25:1, 13 (TPT) “As the time of My coming draws near, heaven’s kingdom realm can be compared to ten maidens who took their oil lamps and went outside to meet the bridegroom and his bride…That is the reason you should always stay awake and be alert, because you don’t know the day or hour when the Bridegroom will appear.” Robin Robinson Bohlin

I have come that they might have life and life in abundance, yet many prefer death to life; unwilling to give up control they grapple for more and more of what the world offers. The world, the flesh and the devil descend like vultures on the ‘once’ land of the free, the ‘once’ home of the brave. Fear roams freely up and down the streets of America.
Stand amid the rubble and see Me, says the LORD. See My work in the midst of all that satan is attempting to do. Exhort one another every day, as long as it is called “today,” that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin. See My goodness, see My glory. Be amazed at what I AM doing. Become more bold in your witness. There is no time to lose. May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
I AM a God of redemption, I AM a God of the second chance. Keep your heart and mind stayed, connected to Me. Great evil rules men, you are seeing the heart of satan at work. Dark, so very dark will be the days ahead but remember I AM your source of Light. What you are witnessing is the power of darkness unmasked, the tip of an enormous iceberg of filth and failure to take a stand for God. I desire that all men be saved and come to the knowledge of Truth. You must be rooted and grounded in Me for in days ahead much that has been cloaked in darkness will come to light.
Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. I have said these things to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.
Be alert, be on guard. Be aware, be prepared. Trust Me, says the LORD. Trust only in Me.
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS: I am releasing the strength and power of the anointing of this season to rest upon you. And, when this anointing comes in its full measure you are going to be changed. That spiritual oil will flow through you and ignite you and cause your spirit man to come to attention and come alive. Then out of your innermost being will flow the rivers of living water that I have prepared at this time. Be encouraged. Rise up to receive that which I have given to you. Be ready to be changed and ignited for this new season, says the Lord God Almighty.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS: You can achieve some sense of normalcy by establishing yourself in a spiritual flow to include time spent with Me. Well-being cannot be attained when you focus on all that is wrong in your life, your neighborhood, your country or the world. Rise above the things that drag you down and seek the place of peace and safety that comes from Me.
2 Thessalonians 3:16 Now may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace always in every way. The Lord be with you all.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:Refuse to become short-sighted. It is important for you to be able to look beyond the difficulties of this time to see the big picture. Do not become a victim of the problems that seem to overshadow optimism. Set yourself to go forward in the power and strength of the Spirit. The flesh is weak, but your spirit is strong when you abide in Me.
Matthew 26:41 “Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
September 14, 2020. Okay, there has been a setback. It is not a major setback, just a little difficult to deal with. My word to you is to take it all in stride. You are good at that. You have done it all your life. This is just another little thing to deal with. Things like this cause your belief to deepen. It is a testimony to others and a blessing to Me to observe how you handle such things.
James 1:2-4 (MSG) “Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your belief-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. So don’t try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way.” Bev Robinson
September 13, 2020. Clear the air. It is essential to mend dilemmas concerning offenses between fellow believers and yourself and with those dear to your heart. Have you ever noticed how petty a trespass can be? Consider, in retrospect, the childishness that formed the turbulence. Some say a well-balanced individual has a chip on both shoulders; almost daring others to knock one off in order to justify blowing off steam. Be sensible. If need be, eat humble pie.
Ephesians 4:26-27 (TPT) “But don’t let the passion of your emotions lead you to sin! Don’t let anger control you or be fuel for revenge, not for even a day. Don’t give the slanderous accuser, the devil, an opportunity to manipulate you!” Kevin Robinson
September 14, 2020. Listen to the sounds of the night. There is a reason that your sleep is being disrupted. I want you awake and aware of what is going on. Nothing can steal your time in the middle of the night so I am calling My watchmen to station themselves on the wall. Be on the alert and ready to pray. Keep up with the times and the events of these days. Get in on the excitement of His soon return.
1 Thessalonians 5:1-3 (MSG) “I don’t think, friends, that I need to deal with the question of when all this is going to happen. You know as well as I that the day of the Master’s coming can’t be posted on our calendars. He won’t call ahead and make an appointment any more than a burglar would. About the time everybody’s walking around complacently, congratulating each other- “We’ve sure got it made! Now we can take it easy!”-suddenly everything will fall apart. It’s going to come as suddenly and inescapably as birth pangs to a pregnant woman.” Robin Robinson Bohlin
SIGNS OF THE TIMES
Stir up the gift of God within you, and let it rise. Let My Spirit rise within you and watch what I will do to My glory, for it will not be you doing it, it will be Me doing it in you and through you. In you and through you. In you and through you.
So enjoy your life. Enjoy what I have provided, what I have given and receive My provision. Again, be not afraid and be not discouraged, for I the Lord your God, go ahead of you preparing the way. Be very strong and very courageous in this day and in this hour, for this is the day and the hour that I am going to show Myself mighty in the earth, saith the Lord. I will be honored. I will be glorified.
Those who do not honor Me and do not glorify Me (there will be many of them) will be the ones who have nothing, who lack, who will always be stirring up trouble because they do not have any peace within themselves. I want them to have peace. I have given Myself for them that they might have peace, but they do not want Me, they do not love Me, they do not love My appearing.
As for you, you love My appearing and you wait patiently for Me, for I am coming and I am coming soon. I am on the way to coming. It is in the plan and I will fulfil the plan. Just watch what is going on all around you. The signs of the times are happening, but be not afraid. Rather rejoice and be ready for when I come. I will come as a thief in the night, so do not be distracted by the world and its ways. Do not be distracted by your own lusts and desires in these days, for these are perilous times.
There are many things that try to take you away from Me and get your eyes off of Me onto other things. Do not look to those ways and those things, for I have better things for you. Look to Me, keep your eyes fixed on Me and I will keep you in perfect peace. Perfect peace. Be led by My peace. Be led by My Spirit, saith the Lord. For I am here. I am with you. Do not ever be afraid. Do not get discouraged, just be patient. Patience, patient. Patient patience. Why? Because we know whom we have believed and we are fully persuaded and convinced He is able to keep that which we have committed to Him.

Minister of the Lord Jesus Christ
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS: When you evaluate what you are stressed about, you will find that most of that tension comes from things you have no control over. Take action where you have responsibility and authority and let go of the rest. Release to Me those things that concern you. I can do what you cannot. Trust Me.
Matthew 11:29-30 “Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
September 11, 2020. There has been a change, a welcomed change. It will take some getting used to, but it is not hard to adjust. With the original change, there are all kinds of other changes. Don’t let things pile up when adjusting. Keep things in order or you will tend to get discouraged and fall back into the old ways. Keep your mind alert and watch what is happening. You will be able to meet the change head on.
Joshua 1:9 (NKJV) “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” Bev Robinson
September 11, 2020. Sometimes it is easy to get caught up in conspiracies because you let your mind wander. I am the one who has given you a keen sense of awareness of spiritual realms around you. I have set in place your strong ability for discernment and sensitivity to the supernatural. I have called you up to the high places and positioned you as a watchman. Never discount your gifting. Pray fervently. Speak up about what you see and hear.
Isaiah 55:11 (AMPC) “So shall My Word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void [without producing any effect, useless], but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.” Kevin Robinson
September 11, 2020. The price of freedom has been great – freedom has been fought for throughout the ages. The nations of the earth have been enslaved from time to time and have fought for their freedom. I tell you, now is the time to fight for your freedom. Stand up and refuse the enemy’s tactics. Open your spiritual eyes to his lies and deceit. Then and only then, will true freedom come. Break slavery’s chains and walk freedom’s road.
1 Peter 2:16 (NIV) “Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as God’s slaves.” Robin Robinson Bohlin
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS: This season of change will require your flexibility, and dependence on the wisdom and direction that only I can give. Your most valuable asset is relationship with Me and the ability to quiet your soul and listen for My voice. Do not overreact to events that surround you, but rather maintain a sense of calm stability. Belief is a vital component of moving from chaos to peace.
Hebrews 11:1 Now belief is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
September 10, 2020. Should you do something that has been presented? That is a wise question. You don’t want to get caught in a bind later because you took on too much. The answer is yes. There is a time slot for you to do something that had not been planned earlier. There is a desire for what you will do. It is much needed.
Proverbs 16:1-2 (ESV) “The plans of the heart belong to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the LORD. All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, but the LORD weighs the spirit.” Bev Robinson
September 10, 2020. Stop holding back. Seek out godly counsel. There are time-tested, proven wise mentors in your midst who are more than capable of giving astute guidance with matters you are facing. I know humility is not the easiest attribute to obtain. It is essential in your current phase of indecision. There are clear-cut resolutions to what you are facing. When uncertainty increases, many times it is helpful to return to the point where you last heard Me and experienced My peace.
Proverbs 15:22 (NASB) “Without consultation, plans are frustrated, but with many counselors they succeed.” Kevin Robinson
September 10, 2020. These days of unrest have need of My power to invade the earth. I await your declarations over the situations that have arisen. I have accomplished your victory in every circumstance and wait for you to loose My angels. Nothing that has happened has surprised Me, for I know the end from the beginning. Declare My purpose over each and every situation around you and see the powerful hand of My Spirit move according to your decrees.
Job 22:28-29 (NASB)”You will also decree a thing, and it will be established for you; And light will shine on your ways. When you are cast down, you will speak with confidence, And the humble person He will save.” Jonas Bohlin
