SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
Rise up. It is time for your to move higher in the realm of the Spirit. Do not wait for others to join you or keep you company. You will have to stand alone in your convictions and relationship with Me, says the Lord. You cannot ride on someone else’s coat tails. It doesn’t matter what others around you are doing or thinking. You must be righteous if you are the only one in a crowd.
Isaiah 60:1 Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.
Developing new plans and habits is the key for what God is doing in your life right now. Doug Addison
January 24, 2019. Something bad will happen. Many will think it’s very bad. But you are going to overcome because you don’t see it as really bad. You don’t think along the line that bad things are going to happen. You think along the lines that good things are going to happen. You are convinced that I am good and, when something is bad, you know that in the long run it will turn out good. And it does.
Romans 8:38-39 (NASB) “For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Bev Robinson
January 24, 2019. Be careful of your hardline approaches towards others regarding their spiritual, political and philosophical sentiments. The last thing society needs is for Christians to exhibit a hypercritical demeanor toward believers and nonbelievers about their approaches to living. Thank Me for your living in a society where you have the liberty to express yourself. You too were once a wanderer and look where you are now! Let kindness be your earmarked evidence of My immeasurable empathy and understanding.
Romans 2:4 (MSG) “You didn’t think, did you, that just by pointing your finger at others you would distract God from seeing all your misdoings and from coming down on you hard? Or did you think that because He’s such a nice God, He’d let you off the hook? Better think this one through from the beginning. God is kind, but He’s not soft. In kindness He takes us firmly by the hand and leads us into a radical life-change.” Kevin Robinson
January 24, 2019. You settled for less than the best that I have for you. No one is a substitute for the life available through Me. There is no substitute for purity in your life that is required by Me; there is no substitute for trusting Me for all that you need, and there is no substitute for the faith that causes you to ask Me for anything. My child, do not settle for counterfeit when the Authentic is yours!
John 14:6 (NASB) “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.” Jonas Bohlin
