SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
Don’t be in a hurry. Every moment of every day will produce opportunities to know yourself and to know Me better. When you rush through life, you are likely to miss some important details. Those details will come back around until you have gleaned the value and applied it to your life. Pay attention and be aware of what I am showing you.
 
Proverbs 5:1 My son, pay attention to my wisdom; lend your ear to my understanding.
WISDOM FOR TRANSITION by Bill Burns:
The new season begins with the Feast of Trumpets, so we are in transition from one year to another. It is a time period in which we, as Christians, move into the next season. This time of transition is the period of time from the Rosh Hashanah to January of the next calendar year.
The Purpose of Transition is two-fold:
1. To make sure you are receiving the promises of the old season.
2. To prepare yourself to move into the new season by paying attention to the prophetic word and the signs that God has given to confirm His Word.
Mark 16:20 And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the Word through the accompanying signs.
Don’t forget that you must possess the promises God has given and be reminded that the enemy will try to steal or delay those promises.
John 10:10 The thief does not come except to steal and to kill and to destroy. I have come that they may have life and that they may have it more abundantly.
This is a time for belief to be activated because the promises are yes (to be understood) and amen (to be received).
1 John 5:4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has over the world-our belief.
Promise:
3 John verse 2: Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.
Prosper is to be successful in all things and to be in health. This will be a season of reward for faithfulness in the face of hardships.
Isaiah 40:10 Behold, the Lord God shall come with a strong hand and His arm shall rule for Him; behold, His reward is with Him and His work before Him.
The Anointing:
The anointing for this season is strength for victory and will bring the power required for breakthrough and victory.
Nehemiah 8:10 “The joy of the Lord is your strength.”
This anointing will bring the joy of the Lord for warfare and victory. Joy enables you to fight the good fight of belief so that victory is assured.
2 Corinthians 2:14 Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.
Psalm 92:4 For you, Lord, have made me glad through Your work; I will triumph in the works of Your hands.
Psalm 47:1 Oh, clap your hands, all you peoples! Shout to God with the voice of triumph!
Declare your victory! This new anointing will bring confidence, which is exactly what you need in the time of transition so that you may receive God’s promises and to position yourself for the journey of the new season.
Don’t forget this word of wisdom:
Ephesians 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.
Ephesians 1:13-14 In Him you also trusted, after you heard the Word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.
Stay connected!  The bridge by which we cross over into the new requires that you leave the baggage of the past behind.
Philippians 3:13-14 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
Wisdom for Transition:
Set things in order. Deal with unbelief, failures, disappointment and discouragement. It’s not over. You still have this time frame of transition to receive all that God has promised you so that you will be ready and equipped for the next season!
Ephesians 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.
The Trumpet:
Because the Lord has said, “Behold, I will do a new thing, now it will spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” So, go boldly into this new season with new anointing and trust Me to lead you into the blessings and fullness of it!

Word of the Lord Sept. 19, 20

YEAR OF EXTREMES by Marsha Burns:
Unity with others will be possible when there is unity with God through Jesus Christ by the Holy Spirit.
John 17:20-23 “I [Jesus] do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: I in them and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one and that the world may know that You have sent Me and have loved them as You have loved Me.”
Love of God
We can only love others when we know the love of God. John 15:12 “This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.”
Romans 8:35-39 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written: “For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

SMALL STRAWS:
I speak to tale-bearers who are addicted to gossip as you share things that are none of your business. Treat others with the same love and respect that you desire for yourself. I tell you honestly that you are sowing seeds that will produce a harvest you will not enjoy. Be done with the pride that comes from judging others and set your mind and heart on things of the Spirit.
This is a time of sifting and sorting. There are things to keep and things to throw away. You are already aware of this process, but you have not finished the course. This exercise will not only be in the physical realm, but will also be an activity of the soul. Internal work will continue with greater clarity than ever, as you experience more spiritual refinement.
Great spiritual revelations will be released to those who are genuine truth-seekers. Revelation will come to you when you set your heart to have a strong, personal relationship with Me and set your priorities in proper order. I say to you, stay strong and focused.
You have heard about Me and you have read My Word, but you now have an unparalleled opportunity to know Me on a very personal and powerful level. Now is the time to grow up spiritually and have a first-hand experience. 1 John 2:27 But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things and is true and is not a lie and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.

The challenges and changes you have endured will usher in opportunities to begin again.
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
I will lead you forth with great favour and give you the wisdom and ability to do all that your destiny requires. Believe it and receive it!
The coming spiritual year will be more of the same in many ways. However, you can make choices that keep you from division and strife. You can choose to walk and live in the Spirit and to love one another as you are loved!
September 19, 2020. You were supposed to have stopped a long time ago, but you have lingered for quite some time now. It isn’t too late. I know it is hard to quit, but you need to for the sake of other things I have for you to do. Watch your time. The rest of what you are to do in order to be successful needs to fall into place like pieces of a puzzle. So stop now before it is too late.
John 10:27 (NKJV) “My sheep hear My voice and I know them and they follow Me.”  Bev Robinson
 
September 19, 2020. The evidence of My influence in your body, soul and spirit is no accident. Do not take for granted all that I have done. When you pay close attention to your advancement in your world, you will see that I am actively at work on your behalf. I have sworn by Myself (because there is no greater name) to work on your behalf to cause everything to work together for the good of those who love Me and are called according to My purposes.
Romans 8:28 (NASB) “And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.”  Jonas Bohlin

Word of the Lord Sept. 18, 20

YEAR OF EXTREMES by Marsha Burns:
Today at sundown begins the two-day celebration of Rosh Hashanah. The Hebrew word Rosh means “head” or “beginning.” Hashanah means “the year.” This reference is found only once in the Old Testament in Ezekiel 40:1 with the words at the beginning of the year. Rosh Hashanah is more commonly known as the Feast of Trumpets. It marks the beginning of the spiritual new year, a special time set apart for a new beginning with the Lord.
My own tradition for the Feast of Trumpets is to seek the Lord for prophetic insights with regard to the coming year, which I will do my best to share with you.
Year of Extremes
There will be ups and downs. Middle ground will be hard to find. Expect extremes in weather patterns and in human behavior. There will be a lack of moderation and a departure from tradition and basic common sense in many cases. Your stability will come in having a God-connection.
Mixed Bag
In a vision I saw a brown, paper bag of things that shouldn’t be together, like a half-eaten sandwich, a shoe, a cat toy, a book, and I heard the Lord say that the nature of the year to come will be a mixed bag or a diverse assortment of things.
Unity of Opposites
Unity of opposites is defined as situations or opinions which are opposite to each other yet dependent on each other. There wouldn’t be an up without a down, right without wrong, or good without evil. The way to escape the division that results from opposing viewpoints is to seek the Spirit of Truth. Those who do not want to choose one side or the other have only one option and that is to walk in the Spirit, which is above the pride of human opinion.
Unity of the Spirit
Unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace is an endeavor that needs to be carefully preserved. It opposes all of man’s ideas of unity, which is usually to find “our people.” We search for those who have the same interests, beliefs, and goals that we embrace. But it always produces division with those who do not hold those same values and ideals. Therefore, we become tribal as we seek to join a group, party, or sect that we can identify with. Tribalism is the behavior and attitudes that stem from strong loyalty to one’s own tribe or social group, producing an in-group and an out-group where love is replaced with hatred, often leading to violence. Proverbs 10:12 Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all sins.
Ephesians 4:1-6 I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all and through all and in you all. But to each one of us favour was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift.
The way out of a position of strife and division is to refuse to allow carnal nature, or flesh, to rule. Then, you can learn to walk in the Spirit. Galatians 5:16-17 I say then: Walk in the Spirit and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusts against the Spirit and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish.
September 18, 2020. Opportunity is soon coming up to share of My goodness. It will be startling to some as they don’t see what has happened as good. What happened is not good, but out of very hard situations, I make something good. They will eventually see the evidence of goodness. Do not hold back. Tell it all. Some is strange, but much of life is strange and those hearing will see how I turn strange things into good.
Psalm 145:9 (ESV) “The LORD is good to all and His mercy is over all that He has made.”  Bev Robinson
 
September 18, 2020. Delight, delight, delight. Take pleasure with Me. Let your life be filled with the fullness of My joy and gladness. Young children have no problem asking for things they want, do they? It is built within your DNA to want things. Sometimes there needs to be safeguarding for things not beneficial for children, but parents enjoy giving to their children. Become like a child as you once were. Frolic at My feet. Take pleasure. It is My pleasure.
2 Samuel 6:14-15 (NASB) “And David was dancing before the Lord with all his might, and David was wearing a linen ephod. So David and all the house of Israel were bringing up the ark of the Lord with shouting and the sound of the trumpet.”  Kevin Robinson

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
To those of you who are spiritually sensitive, the conditions of this present time have overwhelmed you and made you want to retreat. And, I say to you that when you retreat you must find your place of safety in Me. Let your life in the Spirit spring up into a fresh, new beginning that will produce strength and hope for the days to come.
 
Isaiah 58:11 The Lord will guide you continually, and satisfy your soul in drought, and strengthen your bones; you shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.
September 17, 2020. All you have to do is ask. I am right there with bucket loads of wisdom, and understanding, really more than you need. I know you seek these like you do silver. This is good. I will grant your request, because I love you. You will see My plan for you unfold before your eyes. You will still be amazed at how well I take care of you and those you love. Haven’t you always been amazed? Yes, you have.
Proverbs 2:2-5 (NASB) “Make your ear attentive to wisdom, Incline your heart to understanding; For if you cry for discernment, Lift your voice for understanding; If you seek her as silver And search for her as for hidden treasures; Then you will discern the fear of the LORD And discover the knowledge of God.”  Bev Robinson
 
September 17, 2020. A spiritual father had a saying that I genuinely appreciated. It was this, “don’t sweat the small stuff, because it’s all small stuff.” Troublesome little irritants that keep bothering you are reminders of his statement. Those words of wisdom are timeless in their nature. Annoyances are a way of life. The way you handle them can be a whole different story. Keep your heart, mind and soul set upon My ways and watch bothersome issues quickly fade away.
Proverbs 4:25 (TPT) “Set your gaze on the path before you. With fixed purpose, looking straight ahead, ignore life’s distractions.”   Kevin Robinson
 
September 17, 2020. You are My agent in the earth today, but you are only able to emit the things that are inside you. You have heard Me say that you reap what you sow, but I tell you that you cannot sow what you do not have. Be careful where you obtain the seed that you sow. Ask of Me and I will pour into you much fruit from which you may choose to sow into those around you.
Galatians 5:22-23 (NASB) “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,  gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.”  Jonas Bohlin

Word of the Lord Sept. 16, 20

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

Word of the Lord Sept. 15, 20

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
In these uncertain times, almost everything you hear is distorted and exaggerated for the purpose of manipulation and control. It is more important than ever that you walk in the Spirit and in the gift of discerning of spirits. Your place of safety is in seeking Me for truth and direction. I will show you the way.
 
John 14:6a Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.”
 
A Watchman on the Wall…..Armed and Dangerous

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.

September 15, 2020. You are in the middle now and not sure which way to go. It does not make sense to go forward, but you consider that may be the best way to go. Don’t do anything without checking with Me. Don’t make a move without My directions. Even though it looks like and feels like you are going the wrong way. Don’t look around and don’t go on feelings or you will lose belief. Keep your eyes on Me.
Matthew 14:29-31 (NASB) ” And He said, “Come!” And Peter got out of the boat, and walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But seeing the wind, he became frightened and beginning to sink, he cried out, “Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and took hold of him and *said to him, “You of little belief, why did you doubt?”  Bev Robinson
 
September 15, 2020. With all the upheaval going on, you can easily find yourself holding your breath in uneasy suspense of what might happen next. You might be wondering what else that is negative might be lurking just around the corner. Keep a watchful eye for Satan’s ploys beyond the scope of your normal rationale. Take time to breathe and in doing so, breathe deeply. Don’t get distracted. Keep your cool. Carry on with what I have called you to do.
Isaiah 41:10 (AMPC) “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.”  Kevin Robinson
September 15, 2020. Peace may not always look like peace. As David stood before Goliath with My words and My power, those around him were not able to see My peace inside him. Those around him did see the results of My peace in him. Release the manifestation of My peace in your life. No longer live in fear of what the world may inflict on you no matter what the circumstances. Let true peace rule in every situation.
Isaiah 43:1-2 (NASB) “But now, thus says the LORD, your Creator, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel, “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine!  “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they will not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched, Nor will the flame burn you.”  Jonas Bohlin

Word of the Lord Sept. 14, 20

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

Word of the Lord Sept. 13, 20

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

September 12, 2020. There is something new to learn. The reason being, the previous way does not work. You have tried it and tried it and you can’t get it. The new way is almost exactly opposite the previous way. You have to unlearn the old and learn the new which is hard. You have doubts, wondering if you can do it. You have  become double minded. This will not work. You have to make up your mind to learn the new way.
James 1:5-8 (NASB) “But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But he must ask in belief without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind. For that man ought not to expect that he will receive anything from the Lord, being a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.”  Bev Robinson
 
September 12, 2020. Eagerly seek Me about changing the way you perceive your environment. A paradigm shift is what you need within your spiritual eyes and ears. Since you love Me and are called to My design and purpose and when your world is in turmoil, see “all things” from a good and virtuous perspective. Though your surroundings appear bleak, do your best to remain upright. Instead of viewing matters upside down, perceive My outlook which is right side up.
Matthew 5:48 (NIV) “Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.”  Kevin Robinson
September 12, 2020. There is a need today for you to constantly check your motives and your words. I say to you that the mind that is not renewed is a mind of selfishness and self-service. Be very careful that you do not fall into that trap. Grow closer to Me by being transformed into a person who considers the needs and thoughts of others before yourself. Listen carefully to your words and determine if they are yours or Mine.
Philippians 2:3 (AMP) “Do nothing from factional motives [through contentiousness, strife, selfishness, or for unworthy ends] or prompted by conceit and empty arrogance. Instead, in the true spirit of humility (lowliness of mind) let each regard the others as better than and superior to himself [thinking more highly of one another than you do of yourselves].”  Jonas Bohlin

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
