SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
In a vision I saw a train pulling away from the platform, and the Lord said that moving forward will be similar. It will be slow at first and gain momentum with distance. The same can be said for us spiritually and naturally until it is “full steam ahead”, which is to proceed with as much energy and vitality as possible. I had a sense of excitement in my spirit, knowing that we are being released into a new spiritual season.
Philippians 3:13-14 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
Joy and fun will shift the spiritual atmosphere that will open up blessings and mini- miracles. Doug Addison

Be certain of your goal, keeping your focus on the ultimate determination to be the victor. Your enemy the devil seeks to steal, kill and destroy your every effort to win. Therefore, set your aim on nothing but that finish line. Lean heavily on keeping yourself and your efforts focused and you will have success. Let your efforts disappoint the devil and please the Lord.
John 10:10 (NASB) “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” Ras Robinson
July 23, 2019. Go ahead and admit it, you are a proud person. With that comes a multitude of pluses and minuses to go along with that said attribute. In a strange manner of speaking, you cannot trust others to do a job as well as you can, so you would just rather not ask others for help. I encourage you to take a taste of humble pie. Look at the awesome opportunity you have to bless and encourage others.
James 4:6 (NLT) “And He gives grace generously. As the Scriptures say, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” Kevin Robinson
July 23, 2019. I am God who demonstrates My power by signs, wonders and miracles. Just consider the creation of the world and everything in it, the parting of the Red Sea, the great flood, and countless other deeds impossible by natural means. I know there are needs in your life that require the supernatural and your anticipation is high. Look no longer into the future for My supernatural power to act on your behalf. Your future is today!
Mark 11:24 (NASB) “Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you.” Jonas Bohlin
