SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND BY MARSHA BURNS:
When you have grave concerns remember that nothing is too big for Me to accomplish. Bring your troubles to Me; come in belief believing that I hear and answer your prayers. I can do what you cannot. Come!
Matthew 7:8 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.
CLOTHE YOURSELF IN THE ARMOR
FEAR NOT, BELIEVE GOD
“Therefore, put on the full armor of God so that when the day of evil comes...” (Ephesians 6:13).
If you think that day is not going to come, you have your head in the sand. The Lord says, “It is coming.” Guaranteed. Especially if you are believing God. People ask, “Why is this happening to me? I am believing the Lord.” Well, that is why it is happening to you. The thief wants to take away your belief. He wants to take away your salvation. He wants to take away your life, everything you own and have. Just talk to Job. But the Lord put a sanction on Job so that the devil could not take his life. Let me tell you, the devil wanted to kill him. This is very important to understand. In his ignorance Job thought the Lord was doing all that. “The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away, blessed be the name of the Lord.” That is truly what Job said, but that is not a true statement and many people have believed it.
No, Job said it in ignorance. He repented in chapter 42 (if you last long enough to get from chapter 1 to chapter 42). Understand, it was the Lord who gave, but the thief took it away. Why? “That which I feared the most,” Job said, “is that which came upon me.” He opened the door to evil, to unbelief in the Lord and the hedge of protection that God had put around him came down. This is very important. “That which I feared the most is that which came upon me.” (Job 3:25) We are called to believe God, not to fear that evil will happen to us. Belief overcomes fear. “God’s perfect love casts out all fear.” (1st John 4)
We cannot be ignorant of these things. We have to know whom we have believed. We have to know He is a good God that loves us. Every word He has ever spoken for us is for good, not for evil. “Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
Love in Jesus,

August 3, 2021. Feelings of pain and suffering have hit many people harder than anyone can imagine. Hopelessness from the aches and agony have knocked at the door many times. Some within this readership have experienced suicidal thoughts as real as these words. Christians reading this care and are praying. I, along with My believers, validate and acknowledge the situation(s) at hand. I AM extending favour, acknowledgment, understanding and acceptance. Place these difficult circumstances with Me. I AM omnipresent. I AM LOVE.
Revelation 21:3-5 “And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, ‘Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them and they will be His people and God Himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.’ And He who was seated on the throne said, ‘Behold, I am making all things new.’ Also He said, ‘Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.’” Kevin Robinson
August 3, 2021. Do you hear My voice? Are you sure? How do you know? My voice is a voice of love and compassion. Yes, you will see and hear justice from Me, but know that My voice will speak of restoration of those for whom I sent My Son to die. Your enemy, satan, will cause you to hear counterfeit reports of hate and revenge…know that is not My voice. My kindness in you will lead others to Me.
Romans 2:4 (NASB) “Or do you think lightly of the riches of His kindness and tolerance and patience, not knowing that the kindness of God leads you to repentance?” Jonas Bohlin
