THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS:
Focus on Me. Stay connected so that I might bring you into My purposes for this season. If you stay connected to Me you will grow in spiritual gifting and understanding! It is time–
Ephesians 4:12-13 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
Take stock to see the areas in your life where you have been disobedient to My Word. Those are the places where the enemy can enter in and wreak havoc. If you are uncertain, ask Me to show you where you fall short of complete obedience, and deliberately make the correction. Only then will you reap the fruit of obedience, says the Lord.
Romans 6:16 Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness?
Everything is changing so don’t be surprised if the old ways no longer work. Doug Addison
April 8, 2019. Chaos is the devil’s playhouse. It will steal and kill and destroy your faith in Christ. There is no certainty in chaos. What then should you do if you find yourself in chaos? Study deeply the Word of God and “dig in” to all the resources you have in order to find the truth from the roots to the roof of your life. Find your anchor of faith in His undisputed truth. Nail down His principles and live by them. Refuse the chaos.
John 10:10 (AMP) “The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).” Ras Robinson
April 8, 2019. Quiet your body, soul and spirit before Me. With all the hullabaloo and noise encircling you, this would be the perfect time to bring yourself to a noiseless frame of thinking. Your senses need a time of stillness with soft undertones. It is essential for your spiritual health and well-being. Come away with Me. Find a serene and secluded space away from your cares. A time of unobstructed, unobtrusive solitude with Me is what you need.
Exodus 14:14 (NASB) “The Lord will fight for you while you keep silent.” Kevin Robinson
April 8, 2019. It’s time to lay your burden down at the foot of the cross. When you continue with the struggle, you nullify the work of the cross. Jesus paid the price for your freedom. Take the load off your shoulders and roll it over onto Him. He is the only One who can bring you relief. I want to perform miracles on your behalf, but this cannot happen until you surrender your control. Prayer and rejoicing will be your new mantra.
Galatians 5:1 (NIV). “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.” Robin Robinson Bohlin
