SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS
Protect and nurture your life in the Spirit. Keep your relationship with Me as your first priority. You need to be able to go the distance without waning, and that will require an eternal perspective. Your natural life on earth is temporary, but your spiritual life is forever. Take care of yourself, says the Lord. Live as one with Me.
John 17:11 “Now I am no longer in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, keep through Your name those whom You have given Me, that they may be one as We are.”
There will be so much change you will not be able to keep up. Doug Addison
December 20, 2018. You will soon see an opportunity to give to someone. That one gave to someone earlier and you will have the opportunity to give to them. This one will be so grateful and will be bursting with joy. Relish the joy you have in giving. This is one of the ways the kingdom of God works. Someone gives, you give to them and someone gives to you. It is sowing and reaping. Get in on the joyful cycle of giving.
2 Corinthians 9:6-7 (NKJV) “But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.” Bev Robinson
December 20, 2018. Things considered hallowed today were not even on the scale within the grand scheme of things one hundred years ago. With that in mind, what elements have you made sacred and holy that I once deemed profane? Be careful of consecrating places, events or things I never purposed to be sanctified. It is like watering down the truth. My Word speaks for itself. Don’t cheapen its design in order for your suitability. Worship Me with awe and reverence.
Ezekiel 22:26 (NOG) “Your priests violate My teachings and dishonor My holy things. They don’t distinguish between what is holy and what is unholy. They don’t teach the difference between what is clean and what is unclean. They ignore the days to worship Me. So I am dishonored among the people.” Kevin Robinson
December 20, 2018. My angel prophesied to Mary that she had been chosen to carry and bear My Son, who would be born into the world to forever change it. She was one individual, chosen to make the largest impact in history. My Son’s disciples accepted the challenge to go into the world to bring change to the whole world…twelve men! I have provided the same power within you to bring about change to your world. Believe it! Live it!
Luke 1:30-31 (NASB) “The angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; for you have found favor with God. “And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall name Him Jesus.” Jonas Bohlin
