SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS
Align yourself with My timing. Your submission and cooperation in carrying out My will are vital as the elements of change fall into place for a smooth transition into the next phase of existence. Never doubt the ability of My Spirit in ushering you into divine order. You will indeed fulfill My plans and purposes for your life, says the Lord.
Proverbs 3:6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.

Be thankful that you made the right choice, and continue in that vein of thanksgiving. Now, don’t entertain anything other than good choices. Don’t veer to the right or to the left. Keep your eyes straight ahead on Me. Remember what I did and how I was obedient to our Father.
Isaiah 50:5-7 (NASB) “The Lord GOD has opened My ear; And I was not disobedient Nor did I turn back. I gave My back to those who strike Me, And My cheeks to those who pluck out the beard; I did not cover My face from humiliation and spitting. For the Lord GOD helps Me, Therefore, I am not disgraced; Therefore, I have set My face like flint, And I know that I will not be ashamed.” Bev Robinson
July 20, 2018. Be careful that you don’t get caught up in any holier-than-thou attitudes. You could say you have spiritual discernment, when what you really have is judgment in masquerade. You’ve seen it politically, socially, religiously and ethically so you know what it looks like. But don’t fall into the trap of looking down upon others with condescension. Don’t become pious or self-righteous in that you permit verdicts before you know the complete story. Let My love graciously abound.
Romans 2:1-3 (CEV) “Some of you accuse others of doing wrong. But there is no excuse for what you do. When you judge others, you condemn yourselves, because you are guilty of doing the very same things. We know that God is right to judge everyone who behaves in this way. Do you really think God won’t punish you, when you behave exactly like the people you accuse?” Kevin Robinson

The alternative is the wide gate through which many will travel. My child, this is not for you. Turmoil and pandemonium are on this path. The tightness and narrowness of the gate will remove the pricks that unrighteousness brings. Allow the narrowness of the gate to do My work.
Matthew 7:13-14 (NASB) “Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.” Robin Robinson Bohlin
