SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
Be humble and avoid conflict. Refuse to allow a haughty spirit to cause you to act or respond inappropriately. Pride will only escalate the problem and create more trouble. These are times when a soft answer will turn away wrath. Exercise self-control and show respect to those around you, says the Lord, and I will undertake on your behalf.
Proverbs 16:18 Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall.
There will be a lot of opposition, but at the end of the day it will all work out. Doug Addison
June 25, 2020. When you look at the circumstances, it doesn’t look good. Several loose ends are flopping around. It is going to take some discipline not to focus on your surroundings, but you can do this. Focus on Me and know all is under control. Step back until you can see events from My view point. Stay in lock step with Me, listen and do as I say. You will be back on track before you know it.
Psalm 37:5 (ESV) “Commit your way to the LORD; trust in Him, and He will act.” Bev Robinson
June 25, 2020. Learn to roll with the punches. The more you show your resiliency and bounce back ability to attacks on your character, the less likely you are to be upset. Much like water falls off a duck’s back, get to the point where nothing bothers you. It just rolls off. Bob and weave like boxers avoiding punches. Keep yourself out of controversy and always pursue peace. Be the mature one when discord arises. Remain calm because people are watching you. Righteously represent Me.
Psalm 34:14-15 (TPT) “Keep turning your back on every sin, and make “peace” your life motto. Practice being at peace with everyone.The Lord sees all we do; He watches over His friends day and night. His godly ones receive the answers they seek whenever they cry out to Him.” Kevin Robinson
June 25, 2020. I created the world and everything in it. It took Me six days. On the seventh day I rested and enjoyed the splendor I created in perfection. My plan is for the Sabbath to be holy, set apart, and different from every other day. You, My children, have turned the Sabbath into a day to either toil as on a “regular” day of the week or a day to be self-serving. Honor Me on the Sabbath.
Exodus 20:8-11 (NASB) “Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. “Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a sabbath of the LORD your God; in it you shall not do any work, you or your son or your daughter, your male or your female servant or your cattle or your sojourner who stays with you. “For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day; therefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day and made it holy.” Jonas Bohlin
