SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
When you don’t know where to go or what to do, quiet your soul, your thoughts and emotions and turn to Me. Ask Me. Trust Me. I will direct your steps and lead you where you need to go and show you what you need to do. Refuse to allow fear or uncertainty to override the work of My Spirit.
Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.
August 29, 2020. You will not react to a person as they deserve. They will expect the hammer to pound down for what they have done. But you won’t do that. I am pleased with you for your reaction. You are growing in grace. I am full of grace and you are following Me. You will not curse. Instead you will bless. I will tell you what to do. You ask and I respond. Keep asking. Keep following.
Romans 12:17-19 (NASB) “Never pay back evil for evil to anyone. Respect what is right in the sight of all men. If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men. Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, “VENGEANCE IS MINE, I WILL REPAY,” ‘says the Lord.” Bev Robinson
August 29, 2020. Be known as a kind and gentle soul. Receive My peace for all it is worth. Tend to yourself wholeheartedly. Come to grips with only handling your own affairs. Steer clear of getting involved with anyone else’s business, unless you are specifically asked for help. I have called you to love others like you love yourself. Work at accommodating others. Alter your behavior to display Me in all things. This is doable. Create a tranquil accepting atmosphere.
Galatians 5:16 (MSG) “My counsel is this: Live freely, animated and motivated by God’s Spirit. Then you won’t feed the compulsions of selfishness. For there is a root of sinful self-interest in us that is at odds with a free spirit, just as the free spirit is incompatible with selfishness.” Kevin Robinson
August 29, 2020. You never know when I will call on you to be My voice to those around you. I have chosen you to be My ambassador to a world that is in such darkness. You carry My light into every situation to which you enter. When My light enters, darkness cannot stay. Always be ready to speak the truth and show forth the light that is in you. The world desperately needs what you have inside of you…Me!!
Matthew 5:14-16 (NASB) “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.” Jonas Bohlin
