SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
You represent Me in the world. You are a face of Christianity. Live your life in a way that exhibits the fruit of My Spirit, says the Lord. Let your light shine. Set yourself apart from worldly systems and attitudes and let love rule in your heart.
Galatians 5:22-23a But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.
Don’t be discouraged by humble beginnings as things are going to start slow but build fast. Doug Addison
January 18, 2019. You thought by now events would slow down. But they seemed to have had a burst of energy and here we go again. But you still need to measure your time and energy. Be sure you get enough rest at night and don’t slack on your quiet time with Me. Leave some time to do nothing but think. Think good thoughts. Getting all this in is hard, but it is good for your soul, spirit and body.
Philippians 4:8 (ESV) “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” Bev Robinson
January 18, 2019. All through the Bible, there are instances where the word “therefore” comes into play. You have to see what it is “there for.” It signals that you cannot fully understand a verse or passage without understanding what precedes it. Jesus made arguments to solidify messages He was trying to convey. Your eternity hinges not on your ability to live out a “therefore”, but on Jesus’ righteous life on your behalf. May the “therefores” illuminate more for you.
Isaiah 53:11-12 (NKJV) “He shall see the labor of His soul, and be satisfied. By His knowledge My righteous Servant shall justify many, for He shall bear their iniquities. Therefore, I will divide Him a portion with the great, and He shall divide the spoil with the strong, because He poured out His soul unto death, and He was numbered with the transgressors, and He bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.” Kevin Robinson
January 18, 2019. Some of you are treading water. You have been treading for quite a while and you are getting tired. You have been going nowhere and barely keeping your head out of water. Simply reach out your arms and begin forward movement. You were never meant to be stagnant. Treading is surviving. Swimming is gain. I have many things for you to do; you will never reach your potential by simply maintaining. On your mark, get set, go!
