I am giving you the grace to accomplish more than what is naturally or normally possible for you. I am releasing you into an extraordinary ability to move through every situation with an anointing of ease. You can now take care of things that have been extremely difficult to deal with until now. Ask for and receive the wisdom and strength to transition through the invisible barrier that has kept you from breakthrough. The impossible will now become possible as you trust Me to empower you, says the Lord.
Mark 9:23 Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”

A window of opportunity has opened if you will rise above complacency and be willing to put forth the necessary effort required to accomplish your desires. I speak to you who have become relaxed in your attitudes and standards; your way out of stagnation is to stir yourselves up to do what has been given you to do with renewed vigor and enthusiasm, says the Lord. Your reward awaits you.
Colossians 3:23-24 And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ.

In a vision I saw lines being drawn vertically and then horizontally to create a grid. Lord, what does this mean? And, I heard Him say, “The enemy has launched an attack to isolate, alienate, and divide. Refuse to give him any ground. He will create offenses individually where he can because it is easier for him to pick My people off one at a time than it is for him to defeat those who stand together. Set a watch, stand your ground against this attack, and be quick to forgive, says the Lord.
Luke 11:17 But He, knowing their thoughts, said to them: “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and a house divided against a house falls.’
THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — 6/27/11:
On your behalf I speak to adversity, for I the Lord come to bring the power of My voice over the power that has come against you. For, I have been given all authority, and by that authority I speak over your life that you may be totally free from all adversity, oppression, depression, fear, anxiety and worry. When I am with you, you cannot be defeated. I speak into your life–peace be still. And, there will come a great calm and a great benefit. No longer allow yourself to sit down in the very pit and doldrums of failure, but arise to new heights. As the sun rises each day, arise and shine for you are the people of light; the children of light and the glory of My kingdom upon the earth. It is time for you to come to a new understanding of who you are in Me and who I am in you. It is time for you to feel the power of My wind upon you; the power of the wind that flows through your mind and regenerates your spirit. Come this day and receive a fresh baptism and allow the wind of My Spirit to move you and to lift you. Come and fly with Me, says the Lord.

Your mind is the devil’s playground, but it is your battleground. In order for you to stay free from the enemy’s oppression, you must wage war on the attacks that come against your thoughts. You do this by using truth to combat the lies and fighting fear with faith. You have been given the weapons of war that are effective in gaining victory, but you must do the work, says the Lord.
2 Corinthians 10:4-5 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 6/24/11:
From the first day that you set your heart to know Me, I have been with you. I have already told you that I will never leave you nor forsake you; that is the truth. I say this by way of reminder that you are not alone and that I will direct and protect you as you continue to seek My face and trust in Me. Do not be afraid for I am with you, says the Lord, and I will give you wisdom in times of uncertainty. Go forth in the power of My Spirit!
Psalm 23:1-6 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the LORD Forever.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 6/23/11:
I had a vision of a work of the enemy that comes like a whirlwind or tornado. There are darts and arrows in the force of the whirlwind that are designed to pierce those who are caught in its storm. The purpose of this attack is to bring fear, confusion, and a sense of helplessness. You can recognize this work by the chaos that tries to engulf your mind and emotions. Refuse to succumb to this force of darkness, and stand firm in your faith that I am with you to bring you through to complete victory. Stand still and see the deliverance that I will bring forth, says the Lord.
Exodus 14:13 And Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which He will accomplish for you today.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 6/22/11:
Take time to look and discern your spiritual atmosphere. Then, you must war against the darkness by active resistance and bring light to your environment by establishing truth. In this way you will facilitate victory over all the works of the enemy. Quiet your flesh and exercise your faith to accomplish this task, knowing that I have given you authority over all the powers of darkness. Do not be afraid, says the Lord. I have called you to overcome.
Luke 10:19 Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 6/21/11:
Many of you, My people, are approaching a turning point in which there will be a decided departure from what has been your accepted normal. When you are faced with change, I will give you the grace and guidance to move forward in strength and the power of My Spirit if you will trust Me. At this time you must be willing to let go of what was in order to grasp what is to be, says the Lord. Press on to obtain the prize of the upward call in Christ Jesus.
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.
THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — 6/20/11:
I hear His voice say come! Come on. Don’t hesitate any longer. How long will you falter? For, these are the days of truly entering into the most holy. These are the days of the coming forth of My beloved. So, when you read My word and it says the door has been opened to you and the key of David has been given, then understand you have been equipped along the way as you have walked with Me. This equipping is reaching a fullness that you do not yet understand and possibly do not even see yet. But, out of the fires of your circumstances you have come forth, even as the three Hebrew children came–they came forth from the fires of destruction without even the smell of smoke upon them. Even in these days it shall be so for you. These things are written for your admonition. They are told again and again to strengthen you. As you read My word, the word becomes power within you. And, as you dwell in My Spirit, the Spirit imparts power and brings it forth in your life, which will indeed become a river of God that runs fully through you. This river will bring life and strength to you. It will bring the glory of the kingdom into manifestation. I am inviting you to dwell in that place of glory with Me, says the Lord.

I have gone before you to make a way for you to fulfill your destiny. You are under My protection, and I have made provision for you. However, the enemy will do what he can to undermine your sense of security and to abort My plans and purposes for you. Do not believe his lies, and refuse to allow fear to undermine your faith, says the Lord. I will never leave you nor forsake you.
Ephesians 3:20-21 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

As you have heard, patience is a virtue and is the ability to endure and not quit. But you, beloved, have thought of impatience as being antsy and impetuous when it really is the offspring of a spirit of divination, which tries to control. If you can see impatience as being beyond your sphere of responsibility and outside of your boundaries, you will be able to overcome it easily. Then, it is simply a matter of staying in the flow of the things you have legitimate authority over and minding your own business. And, I am with you to help you in this process, says the Lord.
2 Timothy 4:2 Preach the word! Be instant in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 6/16/11:
Rise up to the new level and more profound way of victory that is being revealed to you at this time. Allow your faith to arise to receive all that I am releasing, and your spiritual growth will take an exponential leap. Refuse to settle for religious dogma when you can move with the flow of My Spirit to greater revelation of My kingdom. But, you must also keep My Word as the standard by which you measure truth. Do not be afraid to move forward, says the Lord.
2 Timothy 1:12 For this reason I also suffer these things; nevertheless I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 6/15/11:
If you have eyes to see, I will open to you by way of revelation the things that have been hidden. These things will be both of the realm of the spirit and the soul. I will also show you the things that you have removed from yourself by way of denial. The result will be a greater level of candor as well as emotional freedom. I call you forth into a standard of honesty and openness that you have not yet attained, says the Lord. Be willing to stretch.
John 8:32 “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 6/14/11:
I speak to those of you, My people, who have become apathetic in what I have given you to do. You have lost enthusiasm and interest, and your focus has shifted from thanksgiving for work and provision to just doing a job and even to resentment. Beloved, it would be good for you to adjust your attitude so that you can see through the eyes of the Spirit to see what you do not as mundane but as an opportunity to exhibit excellence. You will then have a chance to demonstrate My kingdom, says the Lord.
Colossians 3:22-24 Bondservants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh, not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but in sincerity of heart, fearing God. And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ.
THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — 6/13/11:
Be healed, My people, and rise up. For I am among you to bring forth the present reality of My perfection within. I am among you to heal your body, soul and spirit and to renew your faith. I have come this day to shake you and to remove those things that have hindered you. In the process of this shaking I will impart to you the glory that is written of; the glory that is demanded by the whole of creation; the glory that I have purposed to bring forth upon My people. For it is written and it shall be so that I will bring forth the manifestation of the sons of God, those who come to the truth of My reality, of My kingdom, and of My presence upon them. So rise up and declare your freedom. Rise up and declare your victory. Rise up and receive that which I am doing this day among you and upon each one of you, says the Lord.

I have made and will continue to make clear the paths of destruction by revealing the works of darkness sent against you. If you will set a watch for the snares of the devil and be obedient to overcome, your life will be one marked by victory and freedom. For, freedom only comes through victory over the enemy afforded you by the victory gained through the cross. Exercise the authority I have given you, says the Lord.
1 Corinthians 15:57 But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 6/10/11:
Do not get stuck in thinking that you have only one gift or that you have one specific purpose from which you will not deviate. The result of this thinking is that you will put yourself in a religious box. When you are filled with My Holy Spirit, you have Him complete with His gifts and fruit, and yours is only to yield to His moving. Versatility is in order. You must make yourself available to be used in a variety of ways and to become adaptable to various situations and circumstances according to the moving of My Spirit. Diversity is the key to victory, says the Lord.
Acts 2:38 Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Chris

Be empowered at this moment to take every thought that brings discouragement and defeat into captivity. I would have you be transported from that darkness in your soul to the light of faith and victory. Refuse to allow the enemy to build this stronghold against you, says the Lord. Rise up in truth and hope, and allow the life of the Spirit to fill you to overflowing. I have released My strength in you to overcome all the works of the evil one. Be strong!
Isaiah 54:17 No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgement you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is from Me,” Says the LORD.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 6/8/11:
Beloved, renew yourself in faith and confidence, for disappointment and discouragement will steal victory by undermining your blessed assurance. You know intellectually that you can trust Me, but your emotional reaction to circumstances has created a double-minded position that will prevent you from succeeding. Now is the time to rise to a new level of faith that is not under the domination of your soul but is unlimited in the Spirit. My promises are true and are for you if you will only believe, says the Lord.
John 14:14 “If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 6/7/11:
If you will allow it, I will remove the pressure that creates stress. I would have you move with Me in the same way that the eagle effortlessly soars on the thermals, doing what it was created to do. I would have you to yield to the moving of My Spirit with the joy and ease of doing what you have been created for. It is only when you give in to anxiety and operate under the burden of worry that you lose your joy and peace. I will relieve you if you will completely put your trust in Me, says the Lord. Let Me lift you up.
Psalms 86:4 Rejoice the soul of Your servant, for to You, O Lord, I lift up my soul.
THE TRUMPET by Bill Burns — 6/6/11:
I hear the sound of the trumpet of the Master calling to those who are His to come up higher. This is the way, says the Lord; come up to your God. This is the way–reach out to Him who is able to empower you with the authority of His word. This is the way of victory. This is the way of prosperity. This is the way to understand the Kingdom of God. This is the way to truth, to effervescent life and to the glory of your God. This is the way of faith. Let your faith arise now for you to become who you are called to be. I am calling you into faith; into life; into joy; into peace; out of sickness into health; out of poverty into prosperity. For I, the Lord God, call those things that are not as though they were.

Rise up to the high places in the Spirit, and see what I will show you. Listen for My voice and hear, acknowledge and understand what I am speaking. Repeat only what I give you to share. You must not add to or take anything from the revelation that you receive, for precision and purity are the prerequisites for My messengers, says the Lord.
Proverbs 30:6 Do not add to His words, lest He rebuke you, and you be found a liar.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 6/3/11:
Indecision is the same as being double-minded, it will get you nowhere. Now is the time to establish yourself on neutral ground so that you are not swayed by your emotions. Otherwise your discernment is disengaged. Set your heart to know My will in your situation and stop weighing your options; there is a right way for you to go. Be decisive and choose what you know is right in your spirit man. I will direct your steps as you begin the forward motion, says the Lord.
James 1:5-8 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. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 6/2/11:
You, My surrendered people, have become like a well-oiled machine, doing the work of the Kingdom. You don’t perceive the unity of the Spirit because you are only doing your part. But, if you could rise up and view the Body of Christ from a higher perspective, you would know that your part is vital to the spiritual function of My will. The enemy would have you discount your contribution to that function, says the Lord, but he is a liar. Do not believe the lie that you are unimportant.
Ephesians 4:16 from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 6/1/11:
Arise from your earthly abode and carnal living, and let your heart soar with Me in the Spirit. Refuse to allow your worldly concerns to become an anchor. Do you hear the cry of My Spirit to come up here where life is an eternal substance? The more time you spend in My presence the more you will experience the life that comes from Me, says the Lord. I have given you life on earth, but it is a passing shadow compared to what I have in store for you, says the Lord. Come up here!
John 5:39-40 You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me. But you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life.
