SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS
You are in a particular season of awareness that will bring to light problem areas in your life that require solutions. It will be as though the portal of your mind opens wider for you to see and understand that which has remained unnoticed. Internal work requires an adjustment of attitudes and motivations, but this work will be mostly external and will affect how you do life, says the Lord.
Proverbs 2:2 So that you incline your ear to wisdom, and apply your heart to understanding.
July 19, 2018. Don’t allow yourself to get into self-pity. It isn’t as bad as you think. The devil is trying to rattle you any way he can. You don’t want to fall into his trap. Many things from the past are popping into your mind. You don’t want to let them reside. It will only cause more stress. You know to get in My Word. You know to take your thoughts captive. Concentrate on doing this before going any farther.
2 Corinthians 10:5 (NKJV) “casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.” Bev Robinson
July 19, 2018. You can stop searching frantically for those things you think have been misplaced or lost. It is akin to placing your sunglasses on top of your head and then turning the house upside down looking for them, only to later realize where you originally put them. The same can be said about some of the ordeals you are dealing with. Plain as day is how things will unfold and you will realize the stress was totally unncessary.
Luke 8:17 (NIV) “For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open.” Kevin Robinson
July 19, 2018. I AM. I am your source of identity and faith. There are days you have felt as if you have faded into oblivion and no one knows you are here. Who you are in Me is significant to Me and to those around you. Be secure in who you are because I have chosen you to be My hands and feet and voice on the earth. Rest in the security that comes by way of faith.
1 John 3:1-3 (NASB) “See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God; and such we are. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is. And everyone who has this hope fixed on Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.” Jonas Bohlin
