Isaiah 53:5
But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed. 

1 Peter 2:24-25
… who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed. 


God’s Word is truth and is life.

Hebrews 4:12
For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword,
piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a
discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

God’s Word is written and the Word is also JESUS.

Just as Jesus accomplished what He was sent here to do — the Word of God accomplishes everything IT is sent out to do as well.

Isaiah 55:11
So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;
It shall not return to Me void,
But it shall accomplish what I please,
And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

Did you read that?  God’s Word WILL accomplish what it was sent out to do.   Nothing changes that.

Ephesians 6:10-13
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.
Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the
wiles of the devil. 
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against
principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age,
against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.  
Therefore take
up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day,
and having done all, to stand.

We do all we can in the spirit, do what we can in the natural — then we STAND.


God’s Word is truth.

We walk by faith, not by sight.

Just remember, what God does for ONE, He will do for ANOTHER because He is no respecter of persons.

This is the Small Straws in a Soft Wind for today from Marsha Burns:

You are making progress whether or not it is apparent to you. The real key is that you stay in
absolute, unwavering faith in Me to bring you through this difficult process to perfection. Your
attitude will reveal the true nature of your belief. Stand strong in what you know to be the truth
of the situation, and refuse to allow fear to have any place in you at all, says the Lord. Know that
I am with you and for you.

Psalm 91:1-7 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the
shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.” Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler
and from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His
wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. You shall not be
afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence
that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. A thousand
may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you.


Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord,
thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
