Small Straws In A Soft Wind by Marsha Burns:

Check yourself and make sure that you are being kind to everyone, especially those who are closest to you. Your love must be genuine and unselfish. You reap what you sow. If your love is genuine and not just about you and your needs, it will be multiplied back to you. Be generous in your thoughts and actions, says the Lord. 

Proverbs 10:11-12 The mouth of the righteous is a well of life, but violence covers the mouth of the wicked. Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all sins.

Zechariah 2

The Man with a Cord Measure
And I lifted my eyes and I beheld and behold, a man and in his hand was a measuring line of a surveyor. And I said to him, Where do you go? And he said to me, To measure out Jerusalem and to see how great the width of it is and how great the length. And behold, the angel speaking with me stopped and another angel went forth to meet with him.  And he said to him, Run and speak to that young man! saying, Fruitfully shall Jerusalem be inhabited because of a multitude of men and cattle in the midst of her. And I will be to her, says the LORD, a wall of fire round about and I will be for glory in the midst of her.

The Future Glory of Jerusalem
Oh, Oh flee from the land of the north! says the LORD. For from out of the four winds of the heaven I will gather you, says the LORD. Unto Zion escape! O ones dwelling with the daughter of Babylon. Because, thus says the LORD almighty, After glory He has sent Me out unto the nations, the ones despoiling you; for the one touching you is as one touching the pupil of His eye. For behold, I bear My hand against them and they will be spoils to the ones serving them. And you shall know that the LORD almighty has sent me. Be happy and glad, O daughter of Zion! For behold, I come and I will encamp in the midst of you, says the LORD. And many nations shall take refuge unto the LORD in that day and they will be to Him for a people. And I will encamp in your midst and you shall realize that the LORD almighty has sent Me to you. And the LORD shall inherit Judah His portion upon the holy land and will select still Jerusalem. Let all flesh show reverence from in front of the LORD; for He was awakened from out of His holy clouds.

May 27, 2024. I know that you are disappointed, I can feel your pain and disillusionment. You are at a place where you simply don’t know what to do. This is a good place to be because you won’t be working out of your own strength anymore. Lay your burdens over on Me because My burdens are light and not heavy. Trust Me and simply be. Watch My mighty hand move – you will be amazed at what happens next.

Matthew 11:29-30 “Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Robin Robinson Bohlin 

May 27, 2024. I know you feel that you have failed Me because you have not lived up to all the expectations that you have set for yourself. It is a good thing to desire to live your life according to My Word. I know that you are human and make mistakes. Love Me for I will never be disappointed with you. As a matter of FACT…I have made provision for you to always remain in right standing with Me.

1 John 1:9 “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” Jonas Bohlin

The Trumpet by Bill Burns:

The Holy Spirit gives gifts to us to empower us. If we live in the Spirit, His gifts will work in and through us, and will produce His fruit. 

Galatians 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.

Small Straws by Marsha Burns:

Be alert and pay attention to the small things. Knowing the details will make all the difference at this time and can be extremely important to the outcome of situations you encounter. Exercise your discernment so that you can avoid costly mistakes. Know that I am with you to take you in the right direction, says the Lord. 

Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Zechariah 1
The Word to Zechariah
In the eighth month, of the second year unto Darius, came to pass the Word of the LORD to Zechariah, the son of Berechiah, son of Iddo the prophet, saying, The LORD was provoked to anger by your fathers — a great anger. And you shall say to them, Thus says the LORD of the forces, Turn to Me, says the LORD of the forces! and I shall be turned towards you, says the LORD of the forces. And do not become as your fathers! ones whom the prophets accused them, the ones beforehand saying, Thus says the LORD of the forces, Turn from your wicked ways and from your wicked practices! And they did not listen and did not take heed to listen to Me, says the LORD. Your fathers, where are they and the prophets, Shall they live into the eon? Furthermore do you receive My Words and My laws, as many as I give charge by My Spirit to My servants the prophets, the ones overtaking your fathers? And they answered and said, As the LORD of the forces deployed to do to us according to our ways and according to our practices, so He did to us.

Vision of the Four Horses
On the twentieth fourth day in the eleventh month, this is the month Shebat, in the second year unto Darius, came to pass the Word of the LORD to Zechariah, the son of Berechiah, son of Iddo the prophet, saying, I saw the night and behold, a man having mounted a reddish horse and this one stood in the midst of the shady mountains; and behind him reddish horses and white and spotted. And I said, What are these, O lord? And the angel said to me, the one speaking to me, I will show to you what these are. And the man answered, the one standing in the midst of the mountains and he said to me, These are whom the LORD sent out to travel about the earth. And they answered to the angel of the LORD standing in the midst the mountains and they said, We have traveled about the earth and behold, all the earth is inhabited and tranquil. And the angel of the LORD answered and said, O LORD of the forces, until when shall You in no way show mercy on Jerusalem and the cities of Judah, in which You were enraged over this seventieth year? And the LORD responded to the angel, the one speaking with me with good sayings and comforting Words. And the angel speaking with me said to me, Shout aloud! saying, Thus says the LORD almighty; I am jealous for Jerusalem and for Zion with great zeal. And I am provoked with great anger by the nations, the ones joining in making an attack; because I indeed was provoked to anger a little, but they joined in making an attack for evils. On account of this, thus says the LORD, I will turn towards Jerusalem for compassion; and My house shall be rebuilt in it, says the LORD of the forces and a measure shall be stretched out upon Jerusalem. Shout aloud again! saying, Thus says the LORD of the of the forces; Yet shall cities be dispersed for good things and the LORD shall show mercy still on Zion and shall select still Jerusalem.

Vision of the Four Horns
And I lifted my eyes and I looked and behold, four horns. And I said to the angel, the one speaking with me, What are these, O lord? And he said to me, These are the horns, the ones scattering Judah and Israel and Jerusalem. And the LORD showed to me four fabricators. And I said, What are these come to do? And He said to me, saying, These are the horns, the ones having scattered Judah and they broke Israel and not one of them lifted his head. And these are come forth to sharpen them in their hands — the four horns are nations lifting up their horn against the land of the LORD to scatter it.

Small Straws In A Soft Wind by Marsha Burns:

Gather your strength, make a plan and do what needs to be done in preparation for the next leg of your journey. It might not be easy, but it will be necessary. There will be highs and lows in your circumstances, but you must maintain your spiritual equilibrium regardless of what you are facing in the natural realm. Your strength to endure will come from your relationship with Me, says the Lord. 

Psalm 84:5-7 Blessed is the man in whom is the assistance to him from You; in his heart he ordained ascending; into the valley of the place of weeping; into the place which he put himself. For even the One establishing law will give a blessing. They shall go from force to force; they shall see the God of gods in Zion. 

May 25, 2024. Take a moment and look at your hands. I have not only made your hands for feeling, I have made your hands for healing. There is power in your hands. All 27 bones work together as conduits of My anointing. Lay your hands upon people and objects and transfer My power. You will change conditions through your touch. Heal the sick, lay hands on and anoint and appoint. Share love and care through your hands. Touch heals.

Luke 4:40 “While the sun was setting, all those who had any who were sick with various diseases brought them to Him; and laying His hands on each one of them, He was healing them.”

Matthew 19:13 “Then some children were brought to Him so that He might lay His hands on them and pray; and the disciples rebuked them.” Robin Robinson Bohlin 

May 25, 2024. Revive the anticipation of My supernatural power in your life and in the lives of those around you. I created your mind to expect My goodness. When you expect My best, then you will speak those things that are in your mind. As you begin to declare those things, your mind will hear those words and you will believe the promises that I have given you in My Word. Anticipate, expect, speak and then receive My abundance!

Psalms 27:13-14 “I trust to behold the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait on the LORD; be strong and let your heart take courage; yes, wait on the LORD.” Jonas Bohlin

Small Straws In A Soft Wind by Marsha Burns:

You are beginning a new chapter in your life. The past is behind and the door is open to your future. It is up to you to write the next chapter. You will do this by the decisions you make and what you choose to do with every day. Choose carefully and wisely with the understanding that your thoughts, words and deeds will reap their own consequences either good or bad. 

Galatians 6:7-8 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the harvest of the Spirit shall reap everlasting life.

May 23, 2024. There is a “stirring” happening. You can sense it and feel it. Just as I stirred the waters at the pool of Bethesda, I am stirring your waters. You are picking up on it in your spirit. I say step into the stirring. It will feel unusual at first and many won’t go in because of fear but I say to you – jump in because My power is there and you will gain supernatural strength from it.

John 5:4  “For an angel of the Lord went down at certain times into the pool and stirred up the water; whoever then first, after the stirring up of the water, stepped in was made well from whatever disease with which he was afflicted.” Robin Robinson Bohlin

May 23, 2024. You must believe that I really do care about you and your life events. When the struggles come and everything seems to be crashing down on top of you, that is when I show you MY greatest strength and I will bear you up through it all. My promise to you is, that in ME you really never fail. I AM for you and for all things needed. Rejoice today in your position of victory.

Romans 8:28-32 “But we know that to the ones loving God all things work together for good, to the ones being called according to purpose. For of whom He foreknew, also He predefined conformable to the image of His Son, for Him to be first-born among many brethren. But the ones whom He predefined, these also He called. And whom He called, these also He justified. And whom He justified, these also He glorified.

God’s Everlasting Love
What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us? The one who indeed spared not His ownSon, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not also grant all things to us with Him?” 
Budd Rodgers

Small Straws In A Soft Wind by Marsha Burns:

Examine yourself to make sure that you have forgiven every person who has come against you in any way. That is the only way for you to receive forgiveness for what you have done to others in thought, word, or deed. You cannot progress until you are blameless in this aspect of your life, says the Lord. 

Mark 11:25-26 And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses.

May 22, 2024. Are you extending favour, like the favour I extend to you? It is so easy to get caught up in judgment. Here is the key, remember you are seated in the heavenlies with Me, now! You are high up where the air is clear and the perspective is pure. Don’t be a lowlander where the common folk are, remember where you are and extend favour to those who need it. Give favour because you received favour.

Luke 6:36 “So be merciful (sympathetic, tender, responsive, and compassionate) even as your Father is [all these].” Robin Robinson Bohlin 

May 22, 2024. I say to you do not lose hope. Do not waiver. I will do what I have said I will do. Do not grow weary. Have faith. What you have been believing Me for and hoping for will manifest and become your reality. I said I will do it and I will. Faith motivates, faith empowers, faith provides, faith pulls down and faith stirs. Have faith, have hope, I will do it.

Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith brings our hopes into reality and becomes the foundation needed to acquire the things we long for. It is all the evidence required to prove what is still unseen.” Jennifer Peikert

Small Straws In A Soft Wind by Marsha Burns:

Set aside time to rest and reevaluate what you have done, what you must do, what you want to do and how you will go about it. There are places of neglect and regret that need to be rectified as you establish yourself in Divine order. 

Proverbs 3:5-6 Be yielding with your whole heart upon God and upon your own wisdom be not encouraged!

Habakkuk 3

Habakkuk’s Prayer

The prayer of Habakkuk the prophet with an ode. O LORD, I listened to Your report and I feared. O LORD, I contemplated Your works and was startled. In the midst of the two living creatures You shall be known; in the approaching of the years You shall be recognized; in the time at hand You shall be made manifest when my soul is disturbed; in wrath You shall remember mercy. God shall come from out of Teman, even the holy one from out of the mount of the shady Paran. PAUSE. His virtue covered the heavens and His praise filled the earth. And His brightness will be as light and horns in His hands. And He established a strong affection by His strength. Before His face shall go a Word and it shall go forth for a flat ground. At His feet the earth stood and shook; He looked and nations melted; the mountains were broken through by force; the eternal hills melted away  — His eternal ways. I beheld the tents of Ethiopians in troubles shall be disturbed and the tents of the land of Midian. Were You provoked to anger at the rivers, O LORD, or was Your rage at the rivers, or was Your impulse at the sea? The one riding upon Your horses and Your riding is deliverance. Stretching out, You shall stretch out Your bow against the chiefdoms. PAUSE. The land of rivers shall be torn. They saw You and peoples shall travail. You shall disperse waters of the coursing. The abyss gave out her voice — the height of His visible display. The sun was exalted and the moon stood in her order. At the light of Your arrows they shall go forth and Your weapons in brightness of lightning. By intimidation You shall make the land few and in rage You shall break nations. You came forth for deliverance of Your people, to deliver Your anointed one. You threw death onto the heads of lawless ones; for the completion You rose bonds unto the neck. You cut heads of mighty ones for astonishment; they shall shake in it; they shall open wide their bridles as the poor eating in private. You divided into parts in stupefaction the heads of the mighty. They shall shake in it. They shall open their reins as the poor chewing in concealment. And You conducted Your horses into the sea, disturbing great waters. I watched and my belly was terrified from the sound of the prayer of my lips; and trembling entered into my bones and my part beneath. My manner was disturbed. I will rest in a day of my affliction for me to ascend to the people of my sojourn.

An Ode of Belief
For though the fig-tree shall not bear fruit and there shall not be produce on the grapevines; and the work of the olive shall lie and the plains shall not produce food, and sheep cease from having food and the oxen shall not exist at the stables; yet I shall exult in the LORD; I will rejoice over God my deliverer. The LORD God is my power and He will arrange my feet unto completion; and upon the high places He shall set me, for me to overcome by His ode. 

May 21, 2024. My way will always be laced with peace. Today, I want you to pursue peace. You can be in an unpeaceful situation and simply speak peace and peace comes. It is a way within a way, a path within a path. My Son, spoke peace in an unpeaceful situation. Others around Him were afraid and He simply said to the storm, peace, be still. Do this and see the raging storm diminish – use the power within you.

Mark 4:39 “And having awakened, He gave reproach to the wind and said to the sea, Be silent! Be halted! And the wind abated and there became a great peace.” Robin Robinson Bohlin 

May 21, 2024.  One of life’s hardest lessons is learning that you may fail or at least appear to fail in doing something that is required of you. When this happens, many respond that it was someone else’s fault. Some would call it the “blame game”. Adam tried it on Eve and then she blamed it on the devil, in the beginning. All My children have a part to play in bringing about My will on earth.

Psalms 37:5 “Reveal to Adonai your way and hope upon Him! Trust in Him and He will act.” Budd Rodgers

To those who have been obedient to My leading and continue to seek My face, you are on the verge of significant breakthrough. You will begin to catch a glimpse of your destiny and be able to progress in ways you have not yet considered. I am leading you every step of the way, and you will have to be careful to not get ahead of Me, says the Lord. 

Psalm 27:14 Wait on the Lord; be of good courage and He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the Lord!

Habakkuk 2

God Answers the Prophet – The Just Shall Live by My Belief
1I will stand at my guard post and station myself on the tower; and I will keep watch to see what He will say to me and what answer I will give [as His spokesman] when I am reproved. 2Then the LORD answered me and said, “Write the vision and engrave it plainly on [clay] tablets so that the one who reads it will run. 3“For the vision is yet for the appointed [future] time it hurries toward the goal [of fulfillment]; it will not fail. Even though it delays, wait [patiently] for it, because it will certainly come; it will not delay. 4“Look at the proud one, his soul is not right within him, but the righteous will live by his faith [in the true God]. 5“Moreover, wine is treacherous and betrays the arrogant man, so that he does not stay at home. His appetite is large like Sheol, and he is like death, never satisfied. He gathers to himself all nations and collects to himself all peoples [as if he owned them]. 6“Will all these [victims of his greed] not take up a taunting song against him, And in mocking derision against him say, ‘[a]Woe (judgment is coming) to him who increases that which is not his–how long [will he possess it]? And [woe to him who] makes himself wealthy with loans.’ 7“Will your creditors not rise up suddenly and those who collect from you awaken? Then you will become plunder for them. 8“Because you [king of Babylon] have looted many nations, all peoples who are left will loot you–because of human bloodshed and for the violence done to the land, to the city and all its inhabitants. 9“Woe (judgment is coming) to him who obtains wicked gain for his house [and thinks by so doing] to set his nest on high, that he may be rescued from the hand of evil. 10“You have devised a shameful thing for your house by cutting off and putting an end to many peoples; so you are sinning against your own life and forfeiting it. 11“For the stone will cry out from the wall [to accuse you–built in sin!] and the rafter will answer it out of the woodwork.  12“Woe (judgment is coming) to him who builds a city with bloodshed and establishes a town by violence! 13“Is it not indeed from the LORD of hosts that peoples labor [only] for the fire [that will destroy their work] and nations grow weary for nothing [that is, things which have no lasting value]? 14“But [the time is coming when] the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea. 15“Woe (judgment is coming) to you who make your neighbors drink, who mix in your venom to make them drunk so that you may look at their nakedness! 16“You will be filled with disgrace instead of honor. Now drink and expose your own nakedness! The cup [of wrath] in the LORD’S right hand will come around to you [O destroyer] and utter disgrace will be on your own glory. 17“For the violence done to Lebanon will overwhelm you; the destruction of the animals will terrify you on account of human bloodshed and the violence done to the land, to the city and all its inhabitants. 18“What profit is the carved image when its maker has formed it? It is only a cast image and a teacher of lies. For its maker trusts in his own creation [as his god] when he makes speechless idols. 19“Woe (judgment is coming) to him who says to the wooden image, ‘Awake!’ And to the speechless stone, ‘Arise!’ And that is your teacher? Look, it is overlaid with gold and silver and there is no breath at all inside it. 20“But the LORD is in His holy temple. Let all the earth hush and be silent before Him.”

[a] 6 The taunting song of the five woes pronounced against Babylon begins in v 6 and concludes at the end of the chapter.

May 20, 2024. My father was an “angel watcher”. I was amazed that he could peer into the unseen world and see the angels always with him. The Lord says, Do you know that you are never alone? My angels are watching over you, protecting you, guarding you, assisting you. They are here to comfort you. You are created almost on the same level as the heavenly beings. It’s okay to bless them, walk with them but don’t worship them. Worship their Creator.

Psalm 8:4-5 “What is man that You are mindful of him and the son of [earthborn] man that You care for him? Yet You have made him but a little lower than God [or heavenly beings] and You have crowned him with glory and honor.”

Psalm 91:11-12 “For He will give His angels  charge over you to accompany and defend and preserve you in all your ways [of obedience and service].They shall bear you up on their hands, lest you dash your foot against a stone.” Robin Robinson Bohlin 

May 20, 2024. My plan and purpose for you is a clean heart. A clean heart is a heart that is in tune with Me. When you live your life according to My Word there are many rewards. I watch and listen to all you do and speak. You please Me and I want to provide for you all the benefits that come from a heart in step with Me. I know that you’ve made mistakes, but I see your heart.

Acts 13:21-22 “Then they asked for a king and God gave them Saul the son of Kish, a man of the tribe of Benjamin, for forty years. After He had removed him, He raised up David to be their king, concerning whom He also testified and said, ‘I HAVE FOUND DAVID the son of Jesse, A MAN AFTER MY HEART, who will do all My will.’” Jonas Bohlin

The Trumpet by Bill Burns: When the living water of the Holy Spirit becomes stagnant because of the pollution of the works of the flesh, make every effort to rise up again in the power of the Spirit to receive new life. Let the water of the Spirit flow freely and be renewed. 

Revelation 21:6 And He said to me, It has taken place — the alpha and the omega, the beginning and end. I will give to the one thirsting from out of the spring of the water of life without charge.

Small Straws by Marsha Burns: There are things that I want to reveal to you that you have not yet considered. However, you have to come to Me in the Spirit to see and understand. Position yourself to receive the revelations of this time in your life, says the Lord and I will show you things to come. 

Isaiah 26:3 You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.

Habakkuk 1

Habakkuk Complains of Injustice
The concern which Habakkuk the prophet saw. For how long, O LORD, shall I cry out and in no way should You listen? For how long shall I yell to You being wronged and You should not deliver? Why did You show to me toils and troubles, misery and impiety? Right opposite me takes place judgment and the judge takes away. On account of this the law is effaced and judgment is not administered unto  the end, for the impious tyrannize over the just. Because of this judgment shall go forth being perverted.

The LORD Replies:
Behold, O despisers and look! and wonder wonders and vanish! For I work a work in your days which in no way you shall believe if any should tell of it in detail. For behold, I awaken the Chaldeans, the bitter and quick nation; the one going upon the widths of the earth, to inherit tents not of his. He is fearful and apparent; his judgment will be of himself and his concern of himself shall come forth. And his horses shall leap more than leopards and are sharper than the wolves of Arabia. And his horsemen shall ride forth and shall advance far off; and they shall spread out as an eagle eager for something to eat. Consumption shall come unto the impious opposing their fronts right opposite and he shall gather the captivity as the sand. And he shall revel among kings and sovereigns are his playthings. And he shall mock at every fortress and shall throw up an embankment and shall prevail over it. Then he shall turn the spirit and shall go through and shall make atonement, saying, This strength is to my god. Are You not from the beginning, O LORD my God, my holy One? In no way should we die. O LORD, for judgment — You have ordered it. And He shaped me to reprove for His discipline. Pure is the eye to not see evil things and You are not able to look upon evils. Why should You look upon ones disdaining? Shall You remain silent in the impious swallowing down the just? And will You make the men as the fishes of the sea and as the reptiles not having one taking the lead? He pulled up impious consumption with a hook and drew it with his casting-net and gathered it in his dragnets. Because of this he shall be glad and shall rejoice. Because of this he will sacrifice to his dragnet and burn incense to his casting-net; for by them he fattened his portion, even his choice foods. On account of this he will cast his casting-net always to kill nations — not sparing?

Small Straws In A Soft Wind by Marsha Burns:

Let go of all shame and regret. There is nothing you can do to change what has been done except to admit your part in it, repent, and try to do better. Set your heart to emulate the goodness of Christ Jesus, and to treat others with the love, kindness and respect they deserve. In order to do that you must release all resentment, anger and bitterness. Choose to forgive, says the Lord. 

Ephesians 4:29-32 Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart favor to the hearers. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.

May 18, 2024. If you will apply My Truth to any situation it will set you free! I see many in bondage unnecessarily. You are walking outside My bounds of Truth. Spend the time getting to know the Truth of My Word. What this means is…READ THE WORD and you will absorb My Truth. My Truth applied will bring a bountiful harvest of peace. Know that I am rooting for you – cheering you on!

John 8:32 “And you shall know the truth and the truth shall free you.” Robin Robinson Bohlin 

May 18, 2024. You have seen some very dark days recently. I tell you clearly that the world has lost their sense of right and wrong. Do not be tempted to repay evil for evil. My way is the way of love that leads to peace. The way of the world leads to lies, deception and hatred. Do not be drawn into that way of thinking. Take the high road that leads to living life on earth as it is in heaven.

Matthew 6:10 “Let Your kingdom come! Let Your will come to pass as in heaven also upon the earth! ” Jonas Bohlin

Small Straws In A Soft Wind by Marsha Burns:

There are issues in your life that you need to confront with truth and righteousness. You can do this by defining your goals and confronting your resistance to carry out your intentions. This can only be done by self-examination and getting to the root of the problem, which is likely to be fear. 

2 Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

Micah 7

Wait Upon The LORD
Alas, for I became as one gathering stubble in a harvest and as one gathering grape gleanings where there does not exist a cluster of first-ripe grapes to eat, which my soul longs after. Woe O soul. For the reverent one is destroyed from the earth; and there does not exist one keeping straight among men. All adjudicate unto blood; each squeezes out his neighbor by oppression; they prepare their hands for evil; the ruler asks for gifts and the judge speaks peaceable words for bribes. It is the wish of his soul. And I will take out their good things, as a moth chews away and one proceeding by the rule in the day of the watch. Woe, your punishments came, now there shall be their weeping. Do not confide in friends; do not hope upon leaders; of your bed-mate watch out to not present anything to her. For the Son dishonors the Father; the Daughter rises up against her Mother, the Daughter-in-law against her Mother-in-law; enemies are all the men, the ones in his own house. But I will look upon my LORD; I will wait upon the LORD my deliverer. My God will listen to me. Rejoice not against me, O my enemy! for I have fallen and I will rise up. For if I shall sit in the darkness, the LORD will give light to me. The anger of the LORD I shall endure, for I sinned against Him, until He does justice to my cause and shall execute my judgment. He shall lead me into the light; I shall see Hs righteousness. And my enemy shall see and shall wear shame, saying to me, Where is the LORD your God? My eyes shall scrutinize her, now she will be for trampling upon as mud in the ways. A day of plastering of brick is your wiping out and your laws shall be thrust away in that day. And your cities shall come unto leveling and into partition by the Assyrians; and your fortified cities for partitioning from Tyre unto the river and from sea unto sea and from mountain unto mountain. And the land will be for extinction with the ones dwelling it, because of the fruits of their practices. Tend Your people with Your rod, the sheep of Your inheritance, the ones encamping by themselves in a forest, in the midst of Carmel! They shall feed Bashan and Gilead, according to the days of the eon. And according to the days of your departure from the land of Egypt, I will show to them wonderful things. Nations shall see and shall be disgraced, even of all their strength. They shall place hands over their mouth, their ears shall be deafened. They shall lick dust as serpents dragging on the earth; they shall be confounded in their confinement; by the LORD our God they shall be amazed and shall fear from you. What God is as You, removing iniquities and passing over impiety to the remnants of His inheritance? His anger is not constrained for a testimony, for He is a wisher of mercy. He shall turn and shall pity us; He shall sink our iniquities and shall throw away into the depths of the sea all our sins. He shall give truth to Jacob, mercy to Abraham, in so far as You swore an oath to our fathers, according to the former days.

I want you to conform yourself to your older brother’s (Jesus’) image. He fought the battles so that you wouldn’t have to fight so hard. Remember to be “ME” in every situation. I don’t reject; I love. Read the Words of My Son:

Matthew 5:38-40 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye and tooth for tooth.’ But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also. And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well.” Robin Robinson Bohlin

You’ve allowed things to strip away My peace, so today contend for My peace and let it cover you. Do not be distracted by things going on around you, do what I’ve called you to do and let My peace reign.”

Hebrews 12:14 “In every relationship be swift to choose peace over competition and run swiftly toward holiness, for those who are not holy will not see the Lord.” Pam Jackson

Small Straws In A Soft Wind by Marsha Burns:

Refuse to worry about people and things that you have no responsibility for or control over. You have enough to attend to where you do have authority without reaching beyond your rightful limits. Release yourself from any liability that is not rightfully yours and stay within the limitations of what you are in charge of. 

1 Thessalonians 4:9-12 But concerning brotherly love you have no need that I should write to you, for you yourselves are taught by God to love one another; and indeed you do so toward all the brethren who are in all Macedonia. But we urge you, brethren, that you increase more and more; that you also aspire to lead a quiet life, to do your own things and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you, that you may walk properly toward those who are outside, and that you may lack nothing.

Micah 6

Hear indeed what the LORD said! Rise up, plead with the mountains and let the hills hear your voice! Hear, O mountains, the judgment of the LORD and O ravines, foundations of the earth! For there is a case with the LORD against His people; and with Israel He will plead. O My people, what did I to you, or how did I trouble you? Answer Me.  For I led you out of the land of Egypt; and from out of the house of slavery I ransomed you. And I sent out before your face Moses and Aaron and Miriam. O My people, remember indeed what Balak king of Moab planned against you! and what Balaam son of Beor answered to him, from the rushes unto Gilgal, so that the righteousness of the LORD should be known. By what means should I overtake the LORD? Shall I take hold of my God the highest? Shall I overtake Him with a whole burnt-offering, with calves of a year old, no. Shall the LORD favorably receive a thousand rams, or myriads of hearty winter yearlings, no. Shall I give my first-born for my sin offering, no, the fruit of my belly for impiety of my soul, no. He explained to you, O man, what is good or what the LORD requires from you; but only to execute equity and to love mercy and to be prepared to go with your God. The voice of the LORD shall be called upon in the city and He shall deliver ones fearing His name. Hear, O tribe! and who shall adorn the city? Is there not fire and the house of the lawless one treasuring up treasures of lawless deeds and with unrighteous insolence? Shall the lawless one be justified by a yoke balance scale, or by a bag of deceitful weights, of which they filled their riches of impiety and the ones dwelling it spoke lies and their tongue was exalted in their mouth, no. And I tormented you for extinction on account of your sins. You shall eat and in no way be filled up. And I shall banish you to yourself and you shall be forsaken and in no way should you be preserved; and as many as should be preserved shall be delivered up unto  the broadsword. You shall sow, but you shall not reap; you shall compress the olive, but in no way should you anoint with olive oil; and wine and in no way shall you drink; and the laws of My people shall be obliterated. For you kept the ordinances of Omri and all the works of the house of Ahab. And you went by their plans, so that I should deliver you unto extinction and the ones dwelling her for a hissing; and you shall receive scorn of peoples.

May 16, 2024. I am in the stillness, I am in the clamor. My voice can be a whisper and a shout. Don’t let the differences confuse you. Man tries to box Me in and make Me sound a certain way. Here it is, I am the Creator and I’m very creative. I speak differently to different people. Open your spiritual ears and you will experience all that I have for you. I Am Who I Am.

Exodus 3:14 “And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!” Robin Robinson Bohlin 

May 16, 2024. Religious folks tend to make bad decisions. Although their hearts are wanting to please Me, their priorities tend to show that the rules are more important than the Ruler and that godly principles are more important than godly people. When you are making decisions concerning others, ask this question: Are you freeing people to live or putting people in bondage with your religion? Purpose today in your heart that you will set people free with your words and your love.

Matthew 12:1-2 “At that time on the Sabbaths Yeshua (Jesus) went through the corn fields. His disciples became hungry and began to pluck heads of corn and eat them. But when the Pharisees saw this, they said to Him, “Look, Your disciples are doing what is not permitted on Shabbat (the Sabbath)”.  Budd Rodgers
