SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS
In the midst of uncertainty, I would have you express honesty and integrity in everything. Keep things as pure and simple as possible. It is when life becomes convoluted that you are in danger of compromising the values of Kingdom life, says the Lord. Stay close to Me and be aware of pitfalls that exist in your environment.
Titus 2:7-8 in all things showing yourself to be a pattern of good works; in doctrine showing integrity, reverence, incorruptibility, sound speech that cannot be condemned, that one who is an opponent may be ashamed, having nothing evil to say of you.
The new understanding you’re getting will not fit in your old way of thinking and doing things. Doug Addison
October 19, 2018. An opportunity to make a change is soon coming. It won’t be a drastic change, just a course correction change. Changing the course just a little bit will make big changes in future dealings. Investigate it thoroughly when the opportunity comes. Yes, make the change, but do it without fanfare. It will take a while before the change makes a difference, but if you do it you will see a difference occurring. The change is good. You’ll be glad.
James 1:17 (ESV) “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.” Bev Robinson
October 19, 2018. Growth is generally measured by how much something has increased. In your way of thinking, you place much emphasis upon what can be observed and seen by the natural eye. How alive something is grabs your attention. In My kingdom, true and meaningful growth occurs when something dies. When a seed falls into the ground and dies, it produces a bountiful harvest. Let your causes die. Let Me bring real growth and development.
John 12:24-25 (TPT) “Let Me make this clear: A single grain of wheat will never be more than a single grain of wheat unless it drops into the ground and dies. Because then it sprouts and produces a great harvest of wheat-all because one grain died. “The person who loves his life and pampers himself will miss true life! But the one who detaches his life from this world and abandons himself to Me, will find true life and enjoy it forever!” Kevin Robinson
October 19, 2018. Consider this: Is your life worth being imitated? In the Scriptures, Paul said to imitate him because he was imitating Me. Are you imitating Me? People will follow your example, especially those given to your charge. What will you show them? What will be demonstrated as they follow you? Take a moment and examine yourself. Are you imitating Me? Could someone follow you completely and therefore follow Me completely? This is My charge for you today.
