Small Straws in a Soft Wind
~Small Straws In A Soft Wind by Marsha Burns -- March 26, 2008:
Beloved, bring all of your cares to Me and leave them with Me. I cannot work on your behalf when you hang on to your trouble. I can only resolve your issues if you will give them to Me and trust Me completely. Instead of murmuring and complaining about all the things that throw you into consternation, worry, and confusion, begin to rejoice that I am doing a work in you that is deeper than your temporary circumstances. I am bringing order out of chaos that will result in greater spiritual growth and maturity, which is eternal, says the Lord. Trust Me!
2 Corinthians 4:17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.
Here is an example of what the Lord is doing to make His bride ready for His return. If anyone knows of one who has a special needs child, they know of the stress that they go through which wears you down and causes you to become vulnerable to the enemy's attacks, and if that person also has areas of their life that need healing, they can become a prime target for the enemy. This revelation took place after I told the Lord that I wanted all that I could receive of having His presence during my time with Him before my day began. He immediately started to reveal to me this situation that the enemy set me up for so that I would have a wedge between Him and me where I would have a seed of distrust towards Him, which would greatly hinder me.
I had a dream that I was walking through a house with my husband, my youngest daughter and her husband. I became aware that this house had a demon in it. As we walked through the various hallways in the house, I felt a pervading sense of fear and darkness, which increased moment by moment. We walked upstairs and I saw a room with a closed door. I knew that the demon was in that room. I asked my husband, daughter and son-in-law to stay in the hallway and to wait for me. As I entered the room fear was like a thick, tangible presence, but I went in and closed the door. The only item in the room was a plush velvet rocking chair with a blanket draped over it.
This morning I kept hearing the words over and over "You have been marked for a miracle! You have been marked for a miracle! You have been marked for a miracle!" As I sat with the Lord to listen to His heart, a vision opened up in front of my eyes and I was taken up above the United States of America and I saw a huge "target" upon her, but when I looked closer it was a target that was placed there through the open door of wrong alignments, ungodly governmental decisions and curses spoken over the nation. I could hear the enemy laughing as he moved throughout the nation wreaking havoc, stealing, killing and destroying. As I could hear the enemy laughing, I then heard the sound of an even louder laugh.
