Yesterday after I wrote my blog, this was waiting for me in my inbox. It was so timely and ministered so much to me that I decided to share it. I’m sure Bill and Marsha Burns will not mind.
THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — November 16, 2009:
I’m the Lord who watches over you. Do not forget it, for I have spoken in My word that I would be with you always. Even though the enemy would try to convince you otherwise, I say to you that I am here and I am with you and I will walk with you. I will produce in you the water of life, the water that flows out of your innermost being. So come and walk with me. Dare to believe that those things that you have heard in these days shall come to pass in your life. Dare to believe what I have called you to be. Walk in the power of My Spirit. For each season has its own power and each season has its own anointing, says the Lord. Walk in the power of this season where a greater flow of My spirit will come forth.
John 7:38 “He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — Nov. 16, 2009:
As, I waited in the presence of the Lord, I found myself craving routine and a sense of stability in circumstances. But, the Lord broke in and said, “I am still shaking many of your places of comfort because they represent areas where you have become stale and religious. I want to bring a fresh wind that will stir renewed interest and excitement in the work that I am doing as opposed to what you are doing! Too many of My people have taken great pride in believing they possess special knowledge, which they use to elevate themselves in the Kingdom. But, I’m looking for those with humble, open, and hungry hearts. They are the ones I will use mightily in this next season. Let My wind blow and let go of thoughts of routine and comfort. Arise to a new level of adventure and expectation.”
James 4:10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.
