SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS
You have had to come face to face with difficult circumstances. It hasn’t been fun, but when you break through you will have no regrets about what you did or how you did it. Stay true to Me alone. There will be plenty of pressure to have others direct the outcome of this current time, but you must only trust Me to direct your steps and establish a perfect path, says the Lord.
Psalm 16:11 You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
Watch for God to accelerate you, as what would have taken time and effort will come with ease. Doug Addison
August 30, 2018. Resist your over enthusiasm about a new thought or idea when it causes you to ignore established godly wisdom. Tread carefully when patching a rip or tear in your fabric with new cloth. Examine alternative solutions before taking action. Our Father is in control, while also loving us towards His best for us. He can be trusted above all others. He is waiting to bless you even more. Make Him proud. Delight His heart as our own children do ours. Submit now to Him.
Matthew 9:16-17. NASB. “But no one puts a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment; for the patch pulls away from the garment, and a worse tear results. Nor do men put new wine into old wineskins; otherwise the wineskins burst, and the wire pours out, and the wineskins are ruined; but they put new wine into fresh wineskins, and both are preserved.” Ras Robinson
August 30, 2018. Everyone likes recognition for a job well done. People thrive when they are praised for doing well. If you’re not careful, you can get caught up in boasting and bragging about your achievements. If, or when you catch yourself getting trapped by your own words, stop and acknowledge that I am the one worthy of praise. You’ve been granted immeasurable grace. Be sure to give Me credit for the capabilities and know-hows I have given you.
Proverbs 27:2 (TPT) “Let someone else honor you for your accomplishments, for self-praise is never appropriate.” Kevin Robinson
August 30, 2018. My Word is of utmost importance to your well-being. My Word is complete, true and sure. My Word restores you and gives you wisdom. My Word endures forever and causes you to walk in righteousness. You can always depend on My Word to direct you. The thoughts of your heart and the words of your mouth are pleasing to Me because the source of your words and thoughts is My Word. I am your Rock and Redeemer!
Psalm 19:14 (NLT) “May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to You, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.” Jonas Bohlin
