SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS
There are multiple things in your environment that could be the cause for concern. But, I have already instructed you not to worry. Worry will not solve any problem, but will only keep you from walking in the Spirit. Rise up out of the mire of doubt and fear and come into My presence where I can give you true wisdom and direction. The stress of anxiety will keep you from peace, says the Lord.
Matthew 6:34 “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”
This is what the Lord says: “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.” Jeremiah 6:16 NIV Don’t try to figure things out because God is working them out for you. Doug Addison
October 11, 2018. Something is happening that you do not want to happen, but nevertheless it is still happening. You have prayed about it and spoken to the one who is perpetrating the event, but it still continues. It is necessary for this behavior to discontinue, but now you aren’t sure what to do. Take someone who knows the gravity with you next time it happens. Speak again to the perpetrator about how important it is to stop the behavior and continue in faith for the change to happen.
Romans 5:2-5 (NASB) “And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.” Bev Robinson
October 11, 2018. Sin, what sin? Because of your acknowledgment, confession and repentance, I have no recollection of your past iniquities. Because of that, I want you to quit beating yourself up with negative thoughts and declarations of guilt. I have moved on. Won’t you do the same. Forgetting means being unable to call to mind. Release yourself. Chains are broken and you’ve been set free. You know the truth. Now is the time to make practical applications about yourself.
Romans 5:10 (TPT) “So if while we were still enemies, God fully reconciled us to Himself through the death of His Son, then something greater than friendship is ours. Now that we are at peace with God, and because we share in His resurrection life, how much more we will be rescued from sin’s dominion!” Kevin Robinson
October 11, 2018. You have read in My Word, “For by grace you have been saved through faith.” Those words are the essence of Me. I extend faith to those who desire and receive it. That faith opens the windows of heaven to receive everything for which My grace has provided. Is it eternal life? It’s yours! Is it healing or provision? That’s yours also. My gift to you is faith to believe and receive all that My grace provided.
Ephesians 2:8-9 (NASB) “For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.” Jonas Bohlin
