SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 10/31/13:
Be strong and steady as you watch and are amazed at the work I am doing in, around and through you, says the Lord.  A deep work of healing and restoration is beginning and will be brought to completion.  When this work is finished the trials and tribulations that you have endured will only be a memory and the pain will be gone.  Trust Me to bring you through with a sense of wholeness and conclusion.  Go forth in faith!
Philippians 1:6   “being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.” 


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 10/30/13:
I am going to allow My anointing to touch you and allow the rivers of anointing to come alive within you and begin to flow.  Out of that flow shall come great joy, great hope,  and great understanding.  This anointing is to restore you.  Rise up and receive that which I am doing, and dwell fully in My kingdom.   Be restored this moment, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 10/30/13:
I saw a house that had been ravaged by storms.  The outside structure was still intact and the foundation was firm, but the inside of the house needed to be completely restored.  I then saw builders come in and tear out all that had been damaged and construct a new and better interior.  It was beautiful and so much better than what had been destroyed.  And, the Lord said:  There has been much chaos and destruction that has challenged your very existence in some cases.  But, I have allowed this for the sake of establishing strength and order in every area of your life.
Jeremiah 31:28  “And it shall come to pass, that as I have watched over them to pluck up, to break down, to throw down, to destroy, and to afflict, so I will watch over them to build and to plant, says the LORD.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 10/29/13:
The Lord says to many of you:  “You are better than you think you are.  You are a far greater benefit than you think you are.  You have not failed.  For, I am with you and I am guiding you.  You are a blessed one.  You are a royal diadem.  You are a jewel in My hand.  So, you’ve been through the fire, but the fire is that which makes the jewel strong; it brings forth the beauty of that stone; it releases the power of My kingdom.  So, change your mind today.  Do not believe what has been spoken of you by others or by the evil one, or even by your own reckoning.  Believe in this moment that I know you.  I have not forgotten you.  You belong to Me, and I belong to you.  So, change your countenance and become happy in My kingdom-full of joy, full of blessing, full of that which I have put in you.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 10/29/13:
In a vision I was looking through a small rectangular window at a starry sky, and I watched the moon begin to rise above the horizon.  I realized that it was a full moon, coming into full view, and giving its full light.  It was so bright that the stars were eclipsed by its light.  And, I heard the Lord say, “Behold My Church!  She is rising to her manifest destiny.  Her light is the reflection of My glory.”
Ephesians 4:13   “till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 10/28/13:
It’s important in this season what and who you believe.  Whose report will you believe?  Will you believe what man has said?  Will you believe what the devil has said?  Or, will you believe what your Father has said?  Will you believe the prophetic word and that which He is bringing forth now?  Will you make it your own?  Will you establish it in your heart?  Will you allow it to become the symphony that moves you?  Will you allow God’s presence to come because you have asked and because you have believed that?  So, again, which report will you believe?  If you will believe Me and My word you will become that overcomer that is spoken of,  and you will have My blessings in this season.  Let it be so among My people, says the Lord, Most High.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 10/28/13:
Beloved, take the time to get in touch with what has inspired you to live for Me, says the Lord.  Use this memory to be revitalized in the Spirit and to awaken a fresh enthusiasm for My kingdom.  Darkness has increased in the world and in the natural realm, but you must rise above all that is temporary to find and maintain all that is eternal.
2 Corinthians 4:18   “while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen.  For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal. ”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 10/25/13:
I see exploitation everywhere, and there are those who will try to take advantage of you. Be alert and set good boundaries, but I want to develop in you a generous heart so that even when injustice occurs you are always just. Be righteous and allow My love to flow through you as a witness of My kingdom, says the Lord.
Psalms 106:3 “Blessed are those who keep justice, and he who does righteousness at all times!”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 10/24/13:
Beloved, it would be good for you to take another look at the things you deem important.  What and who do you love?   What is the object of your desire?  What are your goals and objectives?  Now is the time to re-order your priorities so that you truly put My kingdom first and your love for Me above all else.  But, you must make this choice in earnest and not as a purely religious notation, says the Lord.  Then, you will be blessed in other things as well.
Matthew 6:33  “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 10/23/13:
Stay calm and keep your emotional responses under control.  There will be opportunities to react inappropriately, but if you maintain spiritual awareness and self-control you will come through unscathed.  This will also be a test to see if you will take things personally and be rejected.   Instead, you must forgive quickly, receive My love, and go on.  Let Me lead you to a place of security in Me, says the Lord.
2 Peter 1:5-7  “But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 10/22/13:
I heard the heart of God calling to us.  At first, my flesh wanted to respond religiously, but when I did I could no longer hear His call.  So, I went back to the place of purity in the Spirit.  Then, I could hear my own heart echoing His heart, and I responded by rising up towards Him and becoming one with Him.  There were no longer two hearts (His and mine), but One.  After a time, this unity began to affect my body and soul with alignment, organic healing and deep, profound order.
John 17:20-23   “I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.  And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one:  I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 10/18/13:
Rely on Me, says the Lord, for I am your strength when you feel weak and unable to rise to the occasion.  When you cannot raise yourself up, let Me lift you up.  Nothing is too difficult for Me.  Believe that I will intervene on your behalf and do that which is beyond your human energy or ability to achieve.  Your faith will make it possible.  
Mark 11:22  “So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God.””

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 10/17/13:
You are indeed entering a new season where old things are coming to a conclusion.  Take time to remember and be grateful for those who have been a help to you along the way, and be ready to move on to the next phase of your life.  This phase will also have challenges to face and victories to win, but you must go forth with courage and faith in order to make the most of it.  I am with you and for you, says the Lord.
Isaiah 42:9  “Behold, the former things have come to pass, and new things I declare; before they spring forth I tell you of them.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 10/16/13:
Beloved, refuse to allow anything to undermine or destroy your faith.  I know that you have wondered if your faith and hope are enough to break through your challenges.  And I tell you, Yes.  It is enough to sustain you.  Don’t waver in your belief that there is spiritual, invisible help available to you in every situation.  Put your trust in Me, and be strong, says the Lord.
Luke 17:6   “So the Lord said, “If you have faith as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be pulled up by the roots and be planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 10/15/13:
In a vision I saw what appeared to be Elijah in the cave.  He was at the point of having been through the fire, the wind and the earthquake, and God was asking him what he was doing there.  I knew this scene was representative of us (God’s people), and I heard the Lord say:  I know the challenges and difficulties that you have endured, but truly the worst is over.  I am going to send you on your way to My destination for you.  Take heart and release the past.  You must do this before you can move forward in divine progression.
1 Kings 19:11-13   “Then He said, “Go out, and stand on the mountain before the LORD.” And behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains and broke the rocks in pieces before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake; and after the earthquake a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice. So it was, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle and went out and stood in the entrance of the cave. Suddenly a voice came to him, and said, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 10/14/13:
Only believe, My dear children, and all things will become possible to you.  These are the days in which I will demonstrate Myself to you.  These are the days in which My fire shall indeed fall.  These are the days in which the anointing that I have promised shall come to you.  These are the days that shall be called the days of victory. For the chosen ones, the beloved ones who walk in My ways, those who will fulfill their destiny by walking this path of obedience, says the Lord.  Now come; come on get up from where you are.  Get up and come forth.  Walk on this road that I am preparing for you.  Walk and you shall see.  Walk and you shall hear.  Walk and you shall be delivered.  Walk and you shall be healed.  For, these are those days that you have desired to see and have yearned for.  Only believe.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 10/14/13:
Many of you, My people, are awakening to a new level of intimacy with Me, says the Lord.  But, you must be alert and aware that the enemy of your souls will release lies and a spirit of lethargy to convince you that it takes too much effort to walk in the Spirit.  Refuse to go back or give up.  The discipline that it takes is well worth the progress that you are making.
Proverbs 15:19   “The way of the lazy man is like a hedge of thorns, but the way of the upright is a highway.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 10/11/13: 
You must quiet your soul and clear your mind and emotions of everything that is upsetting.  Refuse to allow the lies of the enemy to permeate your thinking, for this will keep you from being able to walk and live in the Spirit.  It is of vital importance to stay calm and collected if you are positioning yourself by faith to receive all that I have provided for your well-being, says the Lord.  Be strong and courageous!
Romans 4:20   “He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 10/10/13: 
You are entering a season of recovery — a time when you will have opportunities to recover all that has been lost.   You must not dwell on your losses, but have faith in this new beginning.  For, I tell you honestly, that what is done is done; what is past is past.  You can do nothing to change what has been; you can make the most of the days ahead by allowing My Spirit to be your Guide, says the Lord.  Put your trust in Me.
John 10:10  “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 10/9/13: 
In a vision I saw a man navigating a mine field.  Every step was calculated and deliberate as he searched the landscape for even the slightest or most subtle signs of danger.  His senses were heightened so that nothing could escape his attention.  I watched as he was able to follow the invisible path through difficult terrain.  And, I heard the Lord say:  Even though you are making your way through what seems to be ominous circumstances, I am with you to direct every step and bring you through to victory.  Do not be afraid.
Proverbs 3:6   “In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 10/8/13:
Position yourself for a new beginning that will follow the changes over the last months that have brought you to a place of order and in alignment with My plans and purposes. Yield at this time to the moving of My Spirit as I bring you out of a spiritual desert. And, trust Me with your life, your purpose and destiny, says the Lord. You are embarking on a new day!
Psalms 118:24   “This is the day the LORD has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 10/7/13:
Have I not said to you fear not?  For, you have read that again and again in My word and yet you have fear and anxiety over some of the things that are going on in your life.  And, I would ask you today, why?  When My command is fear not, meaning that you are to trust Me with the whole of your life; you are to trust Me in the events that take place in your life.  And, you are to trust Me even in the very circumstances that you live in and that you are going through.  Trust in Me, says the Lord.  For, if you trust in Me your faith will arise and you will become that which you are to be.  You will be an overcomer; you will overcome these tribulations; you will overcome these matters.  Why, you say?   Because I am with you to bring you through into victory in every case.  So, again I say, fear not.  But rather be moved into a place of humility, allow My peace and joy to abide upon you, and surely everything will be all right, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 10/7/13:
In these times of stress and uncertainty, it is imperative that your faith be  strong and your focus intact.  You must rely on Me when things seem to be out of your control, says the Lord.  Nothing is impossible with Me, and you can do all that is necessary when you put your trust in Me.  Be steadfast!
Philippians 4:13   “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 10/4/13:
Let your yes be yes and your no be no according to all that is right and good.  Beware of those places of rebellion in you where you stubbornly refuse to yield to the truth of any matter or situation for the sake of saving face.  Be honest on every front, and choose righteousness.  You are in the process of testing so that you can see yourself clearly in the light of purity, says the Lord.
Matthew 5:37.  “But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 10/3/13:
Beloved, regardless of circumstances and chaos around you, I would have you find the place of peace within you–in the Spirit.  Establish yourself in complete faith and trust that I have heard your prayers and will direct your steps according to My perfect will.  Be alert to the spiritual revelation in these times that will build character and inner strength, says the Lord.
Romans 8:28   “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 10/2/13:
Let the dust settle after the flurry of recent developments.  Take time to breathe and gain new perspective of where you are and where you’re headed.  Be calm and maintain spiritual strength, never forgetting that I am the sustainer of your strength.  Be bold and courageous and bide your time in faith, says the Lord, for I am with you at all times.
Psalms 27:1  “The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 10/1/13:
In a vision I saw an ancient scribe seated at a table with quill in hand.  There was a light shining through the only window in the room.  He was focused and wholly given to the task at hand as he was very careful to write only what the LORD was giving him.  It was a word of encouragement from God to His people to not give up, but to stand fast in truth, power and anointing,  and to live in Christ continually.  And, I heard the Lord say, “I am doing a deep and profound inner work in My people that will produce purity of heart and life in the Spirit.”
Psalm 24:3-4   “Who may ascend into the hill of the LORD? Or who may stand in His holy place?  He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, nor sworn deceitfully.”
