Let the Healing Begin!

healing2I am greatly encouraged! Things have taken a turn for the better. God is good! All we need to do is obey and follow God’s instructions and show the love of God. Sometimes healing in needed, but I have no doubt that it’s going to be completed. I am taking it day by day.  Let the healing begin!

I have NO DOUBT that I will have my expected end. Why? Because God said so and I am going to fall in line.

Be strong and steady as you watch and are amazed at the work I am doing in, around and through you, says the Lord.  A deep work of healing and restoration is beginning and will be brought to completion.  When this work is finished the trials and tribulations that you have endured will only be a memory and the pain will be gone.  Trust Me to bring you through with a sense of wholeness and conclusion.  Go forth in faith!

Philippians 1:6 being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ. 

Staying Focused

keep-your-eyes-on-the-prizeI should have known something would crop up after I posted my random thoughts. I was simply sharing how I am feeling. I really think a trip to New York is in order. But that is not what this post is about. I am in a focused state of mind and can’t allow anything to distract me. So when I heard to Lord say to go read a spirit of prophecy, I was encouraged. Here it is:

Beloved, stay on track.  Don’t let anything derail you from your focus on things that really matter–things of eternal value and importance.  The enemy will do all he can to cause confusion, condemnation, and distraction.  It is up to you to resist the attacks of the enemy, keep your thoughts under the rule of My Spirit and to control your emotional impulses and responses.  Then, trust Me to give you wisdom and direction in all things, says the Lord.  I am for you!

Psalms 119:133 Direct my steps by Your word, and let no iniquity have dominion over me.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

 

Beloved, regardless of circumstances and chaos around you, I would have you find the place of peace within you–in the Spirit.  Establish yourself in complete faith and trust that I have heard your prayers and will direct your steps according to My perfect will.  Be alert to the spiritual revelation in these times that will build character and inner strength, says the Lord.

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

True Intention

There are some situations that you may find yourself in and you have to discern beyond what you see or hear. Early this morning, God showed me something very deep. Wow! Things are NOT what they seem.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Things are not as they seem.  Stop and discern the attitudes and motives that lie behind words and actions.  Do not put your trust in man, but trust only Me, for I am trustworthy and will never leave you nor forsake you.  Be assured that nothing is hidden from My sight, and I will bring everything hidden in darkness to the light.  Stand in a place of integrity before Me, says the Lord, for I am your place of safety, your holy habitation.

Psalm 139:23-24  Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my anxieties; and see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

At the Red Sea Pt. 2

red seaGods ways are just not like ours! The sooner we learn this, the better of we will be. I’m grateful that I have learned to submit to God. No, I’m not perfect, but I am more inclined to submit to God than not to submit.

In my last post, I was sharing that I felt I wanted to leave where I am currently staying, but God is good. If we want direction and guidance, He will give it to us. I was thinking about doing something that would have been unwise. You see, God opened this temporary door with my sister, in order for me to stay in Florida, until He opens the next door. So there is no need to waste money staying someplace else, when this was the door He opened.

Sometimes things get uncomfortable and we just have to “grin and bare it”.  The truth of the matter is, this too will pass and the next phase is going to be glorious. God has given me a little glimpse of where He is taking me and it’s glorious; so why trip?

The real Red Sea is not about me going to another short-stay place. It’s the residence that God is sending me to before the promise. What I need to do is just stay focused and watch God confound the naysayers. This is why vision is so important. If I looked at my circumstance through natural eyes, I would be depressed, but God has lifted me up above it it all.

Rise above what you see and what you are going through. God is doing so much more and His plans are so much greater than what you can see and perceive. That is what faith is all about. Have faith in God! You will get to the other side!

Hebrews 11:1

Amplified Bible (AMP)

11 Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation, [a]the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses].

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

It is important to your well-being for you to stay in the Spirit.  You must not evaluate your circumstances, indeed your very life, according to how you feel.  Exercise control over your emotions by rising up spiritually where you can be objective.  Otherwise, prepare for the roller-coaster ride that will be the result of emotional instability.  Abide in Me, says the Lord, and I will be your place of strength and stability.

1 Peter 5:10 But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.

We Have the Power to Stop the Enemy

rebellionMay 2, 2013

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Watch for distractions devised by the enemy to keep you from exercising your power to stop him.  I have given you the authority to trample him underfoot, but you must be alert enough to discern his attacks and resist him, says the Lord.  He will try to convince you that his work against you is your fault.  The devil is a liar!

Luke 10:19 “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

Don’t allow the enemy or PEOPLE to blame you for obeying GOD!

Sometimes people are just REBELLIOUS. God has already spoken. If you choose to DISOBEY you WILL suffer the consequences!

How much worse does it need to get? God has blessed some people with the ability to SEE and if you want to go in your own way it will be YOUR FAULT!

Stop playing with God. Some have gotten ARROGANT, WILLFUL AND DISOBEDIENT. You keep dealing with something God said let go of and soon you will see why He said leave it alone, but you won’t be able to blame anyone but your self. He keeps speaking and when we don’t listen, we ALWAYS live to regret it. ALWAYS!

I’m telling you this is a WARNING. Time to put away the rebellion and return to HIM!

Psalm 62:11

New International Version (NIV)

11 One thing God has spoken, two things I have heard:“Power belongs to you, God,

Jeremiah 3:22

New International Version (NIV)

22 “Return, faithless people; I will cure you of backsliding.”“Yes, we will come to you, for you are the Lord our God.

The Final Separation!

236-the-hour-of-separationWhen God decrees an ending to something, just know that it’s going to happen whether you can end it or not. If God says it’s finished, just brace yourself and get ready because it’s finished!

This morning my prayer partner had a dream that she did not understand, but as soon as she shared it, I knew what it meant (she often has dreams that pertain to me). In the dream she could see childhood pictures of some twins, who were neighbors of hers when she was growing up in New York. She asked me if I remembered them, and I did, vaguely. Well what I didn’t know was about 10 years ago one of the twins was tragically killed in a train accident. She was a train conductor in the New York City Subway, and she leaned her head too far out the window and was decapitated (sorry to share this).

Well when my prayer partner shared this dream I knew it was for me and I immediately knew what the dream meant. God was telling me that he is about to separate two people who refer to themselves as “twins”. Then my mind went to my own dream where I saw this baby (relationship in it’s infancy) get hit by a train and die). I actually turned my head, when it happened, but in the dream the baby was killed, again by a train.

So why would God show me all this? Well there is a situation with a deep soul-tie, that is affecting my destiny. The people involved have referred to themselves as twin souls and God is letting me know that connection is about to die.

Now I do not believe it’s a literal death, but I know both dreams show violent deaths and that can’t be good. I just know it’s permanent and it’s final. Right after God gave me that interpretation of the dream my Pastor sent out a text to the congregation talking about a message called “The Final Separation!” Confirmation.

My other dream had to do with the promised financial harvest. God is answering, maybe not the way we’d like, but He is answering! When God says something is over that means it’s OVER! We’d just better get out the way and LET IT GO!

Look up and out from where you now stand spiritually, for there is an expansion of insight and understanding underway.  Look beyond where you are and rise above those things that have been dark and gloomy.  There is no cause for discouragement or depression.  Rise up now to seek and to know My will and purposes.  What’s done is done, and now you must change your mindset and position, says the Lord.  I am with you to guide you through the maze of emotions that have kept you in darkness.  Colossians 3:2  Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:

Look alive!  Be alert!  I am opening the eyes of your understanding to see and comprehend that which I am now doing.  I am releasing new hope for the hopeless and light where darkness has prevailed.  Position yourself to receive this blessing.  Now is the time for your spiritual vision to become clear and unclouded.  Let freedom reign, says the Lord.

Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.
