Be renewed in faith, in hope, and in peace. The work of the enemy to tear you down has been formidable, but I will restore what has been torn down. I will strengthen what has become weakened through attacks on your body, soul and spirit. Yield to My power to build you up and prepare you to fulfill My purposes in your life. Yours is to overcome the despair that has developed as a result of relentless difficulties and begin to look to better days, says the Lord.
Hosea 6:1 Come, and let us return to the LORD; for He has torn, but He will heal us; He has stricken, but He will bind us up.

Think outside the box and be willing to allow My Spirit to lead you even when you have to leave your comfort zone to do so. Be sensitive to your spiritual environment so that you will know when changes occur. This is a time to awaken spiritually, discern with clarity and respond purposefully, says the Lord.
2 Timothy 1:9 (Jesus) has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began.

There are things that still need to be brought into order before you can be ready for the next great spiritual season. You must fulfill the requirements of coming into order before you can yield to the rule of My Spirit. Prepare your heart for changes, whether easy or hard. I am preparing and positioning you now, says the Lord. Your flesh will resist, but in your overcoming, your spirit will yield.
Hebrews 12:11 Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.

I call you, beloved, to ignite a passion to live in My kingdom and to move in the flow of My Spirit without compromise. This will require a concentrated and fundamental effort to make that dedication a priority and to put everything else as secondary to My purposes. But, doing this is the only way to grow spiritually and experience personal, vital relationship with Me, says the Lord. Draw near!
Acts 17:28 “For in Him we live and move and have our being.”

In a vision I found myself in an old house that was in need of repair. I heard the bells of destiny and was suddenly engulfed in a whirlwind of the Spirit of God that removed the structure of the house from around me. There I stood in midair with the things of the earth that weighed me down removed from me. The light of God was all around me and above and beneath me. I felt light as air; without hindrance. I was aware of a unity with God that manifested without any effort on my part. It was beautiful, exhilarating, refreshing and revitalizing. My youth was restored. And, I heard the voice of the Lord: “Beloved, I see and know your struggles and the weariness you have experienced. But, I tell you truly that a time of restoration and healing is upon you. Relax and receive all that I have for you.”
Isaiah 40:31 But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.

This is a time of reflection. Think and consider where you are. This time of reflection will take you deeper into My plans and purposes for you and will reveal the places where you got off course. You will see yourself more clearly in relationship to Me and your level of dedication in establishing My kingdom in your place on the earth. You can now make decisions that will have far-reaching consequences, says the Lord.
Proverbs 27:19 As in water face reflects face, so a man’s heart reveals the man.
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 12/23/13:
Listen to the sound of the season and you will find My presence. Seek Me and acknowledge the fact that I am with you in a greater and mightier way than ever. Listen for My voice. Listen for the sound of the trumpet. This is the season of hearing. Listen and hear, and then you shall know what I am doing. Never ever forget that I am always with you. You will have a greater understanding of My presence than you have had before, says the Lord.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 12/23/13:
You are about to enter a season of triumph when the harrowing experiences of the past can be put solidly behind you. Take this time to calm and quiet your thoughts and emotions and establish peace in your heart. Your well-being depends greatly on your desire and ability to do this, says the Lord. Diligently seek Me, for this is a time when you can truly be done with the past and move by faith into your new beginning.
Psalms 34:14 “Depart from evil and do good; Seek peace and pursue it.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 12/20/13:
Take the time necessary to re-establish yourself in faith and to position yourself spiritually to be moved by My Spirit. The winds of adversity will continue to blow across the land. But, if you will stand in the place of protection through righteous obedience, you will come through unscathed. Let Me lead you in the right way, says the Lord. I am your compass!
John 3:8 “The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 12/19/13:
Persistently and methodically press through obstacles that have prevented you from moving forward in smooth progression. This will require patience and even extraordinary effort in some ways, but the end result will be worth your time and energy. Certainly, your resilience will be tested, but I am your help in times of trouble, says the Lord. Ask for My help, rely on Me, and trust Me.
Psalms 50:15 “Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 12/18/13:
I am calling to those whose hearts are spiritually hungry–those who desire a closer relationship with Me, says the Lord. Come to Me; come up higher. Set your face like flint to see My face, not deviating from the way into My presence. Refuse to allow distractions to take you away from your First Love. If you truly are in love with Me, you will not stray. Be single-hearted and single-focused.
Psalm 107:5-9 “Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them. Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, and He delivered them out of their distresses. And He led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a city for a dwelling place. Oh, that men would give thanks to the LORD for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men! For He satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness.”

The season of adjustment is upon you, but you will have to mentally and emotionally let go of things that tie you to the past before you can move forward in My purposes. If you will take this step of faith you will come into a place of liberty and fulfillment that you have not known before. Trust Me to bring you through this awkward transition with great grace, says the Lord. All you have to do is be willing and flexible.
2 Corinthians 12:9a “And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.””
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 12/16/13:
I hear that word, “amazing”, and I hear the Lord saying: You will be amazed in this next season. For, I am raising the ground that you walk on, which means that the opportunities that you have will be greater than the opportunities that you have had before to walk on the path of righteousness and anointing as the Spirit leads you. Those mysteries — those hidden things that have been reserved for you for such a time as this — will come to bear in your life. Destiny will be fulfilled because you follow the path of My presence. Be ready to turn to the left or turn to the right as I direct you. And, when I tell you to go straight ahead, stay on that path. For, it shall be if you stay on the path that I have prepared for you, all things will work to your benefit because you are called according to My purposes, says the Lord. These are the days in which you need to define who you are. You need to position yourself before Me with a question in your heart and desire to know what it is that I have prepared for you. These are the days of the revealing of those things in your life. Take heart this moment, this day and believe that you will receive that which I have spoken.

You have a small window of time to make changes that will have an unusual and lasting effect on your life. Let Me move you by My Spirit into that opening, and I will give you the strength and wisdom necessary to accomplish that which is set before you. You won’t have to force anything, for I will lead you through this transition like threading a needle, says the Lord.
Isaiah 42:16 “I will bring the blind by a way they did not know; I will lead them in paths they have not known. I will make darkness light before them, and crooked places straight. These things I will do for them, and not forsake them.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 12/13/13:
Be one with Me, says the Lord. Let My heart become your heart and My nature become your nature. Only then will the spiritual become natural, and what you do deliberately will become instinctive. Choose to be a doer of My Word from a pure heart, and let your responses to life and circumstances come from a place of righteousness where you always choose good and resist evil.
Matthew 7:24-27 “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.”

Let go of everything that is beyond your ability to control. There will be things that will not work out the way you desired or intended, but My ways are higher than your ways. I know the beginning from the end, and I am giving you opportunities to align yourself with My purposes for your life. Move with the flow of My Spirit to come into divine order so that My purposes will be established in, around, and through you, says the Lord. Do not be afraid.
Isaiah 55:9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.

In a vision I saw a small child running up and down a flight of stairs. It seemed to be an effortless and joyful exercise. Then, I saw the same child swinging in a home-made rope swing hung from a tree. Again, the swing took the child on a long and high path that was both exhilarating and liberating. And, I heard the LORD say, “Come to Me as this child, and allow Me to restore innocence and purity in you. I want you to be able to ascend and descend effortlessly as you access the spiritual realm. Be released into the liberty that is available to you by My Spirit.”
Luke 18:17 “Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it.”

Stay the course. Continue to move ahead at a steady pace with your eyes fixed on your destination. Refuse to be drawn away from that which is vitally important to your spiritual well-being. Even as many things demand your attention and resources, you must continually guard your heart, says the Lord. Maintain integrity and be true to yourself.
Psalms 26:11 But as for me, I will walk in my integrity; redeem me and be merciful to me.
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 12/9/13:
I am calling you into a time of jubilation and praise for all that I have brought you through. Take your stand in an attitude of thanksgiving, and you will be positioned to receive the blessings of this season. I dwell in the midst of those who praise Me with a whole heart. You are in a time of transition that will move you out of heartache into joy and liberty. Let your faith be established in this prophetic interlude between seasons as you wait for direction and instruction, says the Lord.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS —12/9/13:
Distraction is your enemy. You must work twice as hard as in any other season to keep your spiritual focus. Refuse to give in to the noise and the frantic pull of obligations. Stay quiet and maintain composure. Do whatever it takes to gain eternal perspective, and separate yourself from everything that steals spiritual life and vitality, says the Lord. You belong to Me!
2 Peter 1:3 “as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 12/6/13:
If you will release the issues of life and trust Me, I will release you from bondage. And, you will experience more spiritual freedom than you ever thought possible. It is My desire that you be absolutely free — free to be all that I have created you to be and to do all that I have called you to do. Let go and be free, says the Lord. You will never be the same.
Proverbs 4:23 “Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life.”

You must do the work required to come into order in every phase and function of your life. I have provided the avenue for you to be in My flow spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and in your circumstances, but you have to do your part and cooperate with My work. This requires concentrated effort and spiritual focus, which you are well able to do if you want to, says the Lord. Be diligent.
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 — 12/3/13:
Let My peace be the constant in your life so that when peace is disturbed you make the proper adjustments. Spiritual reality must be your priority rather than the chaos of the world and world systems. Peace will be the result of putting your trust in Me, says the Lord. Know that I am for you and with you to bring you through every difficulty. Stay close.
Philippians 4:7 “and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 12/2/13:
Hear My voice today and know that I have instructed you. I have called you forth for such a time as this, so that you may accomplish My perfect will as I lead you and guide you into the fullness of this season. Pay attention, My people, to the signs that come. Pay attention to those things that I highlight. Pay attention to the written Word when it becomes illuminated to you, for it will lead you as a light that shines in the Tabernacle itself. Receive the anointing that I am bringing. Allow that anointing to rest upon you like a mantle. Let it become part of who you are. Let the anointing engage you personally so that it overlays the whole of your mind set and your attitudes. Then, those things that I bring to your attention must be quickly dealt with under the power of My anointing. Become My anointed one, and I will lead and guide you. I will provide for you, heal, and strengthen you. I will do all of these things that I have promised you by way of My covenant. Victory is assured, says the Lord God, Most High.

You are going to experience a sharp learning curve, for I am teaching you and showing you new things that will be necessary in the days ahead. Be flexible and willing to go where I direct you and do what is before you in the way of progression. Never doubt for a moment that I am with you every step of the way and that I will give wisdom when you ask, says the Lord.
James 1:5 “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.”
