Come into My presence to receive healing and restoration from the demands on your time and energy. I am your source of life and strength, and you must take the time to come to Me to be refreshed and renewed. Resist the temptation to try to find natural remedies to a spiritual condition. Let Me help carry your burdens and make the load lighter, says the Lord.
Matthew 11:28-30 “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

Beloved, you are in a season when you can grow by leaps and bounds in your discernment. And, it is imperative that you pay attention to the small corrections along the way so that you can make adjustments. The goal is absolute clarity and precision in what you see and hear.

Watch for and resist the temptation that comes to draw you back into condemnation that stems from old places of rejection and failure. This is an attack from the enemy of your soul. Recognize it for what it is, and give no place for the devil. Set your mind and heart on things that build you up and not tear you down. I am for you, says the Lord, and not against you. Look up!
Acts 20:32 “So now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.”

Reflect and be reminded of good things. This is a season of blessing and favor, and when your heart is grateful and you express that gratitude in prayer, it opens the door for even greater blessings. Conversely, your grumbling and complaining will create spiritual barrenness, says the Lord. Take time to be thankful.
Romans 1:21 “because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.”

I, the Lord, am leading you forward into the depth of My purposes, and I also have your back. I am guiding you into truth and strength of soul and spirit. Your place of safety is in Me, says the Lord. I am protecting you from wicked schemes and plans of destruction against you. Do not be afraid, for I will deliver you from all the works of the enemy. No weapon formed against you shall prosper. Let faith and trust rule in your heart and mind.
Psalm 32:7-8 “You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.”

I am the same yesterday, today and forever. When things seem completely beyond your ability, come back to Me–the foundational Rock of your faith. Find stability in your relationship with Me. When everything seems to be spinning out of control, I am your place of peace. Make the transition from flesh to spirit. Come back and be established in spiritual and eternal reality. Find your solace in Me, says the Lord.

Beloved, I have spoken to you about discovering hidden riches in secret places, but don’t think of these things as necessarily being external. I am revealing the treasures in you that have yet to be expressed fully. I am bringing you to a level of spiritual maturity that you would not have believed, where your outward expression will reflect your inner depth and beauty, says the Lord. Let your light shine!
1 Peter 2:9 “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.”

Take advantage of every opportunity to streamline your efforts in the interest of productivity and efficiency. This will free you up to focus more on spiritual matters. The question is, what will you do with more time? Will you truly spend time with Me, or will you fill your schedule with more of the world and carnal pursuits? It will depend entirely on your priorities. It is My desire that you truly seek My kingdom first, says the Lord.
Mark 12:30 “And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. This is the first commandment.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 5/21/12:
I would have you to remember My goodness, for I have watched over you even when you felt alone, even when you felt desperate, even when you felt forgotten, even when you have been without. I have never left you. I have never forsaken you. I have been with you all of these days from the very first day you gave yourself to Me, and I have watched over you. It is true that I have allowed you to walk through some hard circumstances, but do you not know that they are making you stronger? And, do you not know that they are giving you the right to exercise the authority that I have given you? And, do you not know that they cause you to cling to Me? Your destiny is already written and it is one of victory, not failure. So, walk with Me in trust and love. Victory is assured. Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Dare to believe you can be what I said you can be, says the Lord.

Rest assured that I have begun a good work in you, and I will bring it to perfection, says the Lord. You are not an inferior product. You have been redeemed and set apart for My kingdom.

I see those things that are looming before you that have overwhelmed you. I know you’re doing your best to be strong and to overcome, but you feel weak and unable to cope.

Go forth in faith and with peace I will cause you to not only endure, but to succeed, says the Lord.
Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

I will help you and give you the wisdom and strength you need to endure through current difficulties. This is a time when your trust in Me is imperative. Believe that I can and will direct your steps and surround you with a hedge of protection. Do not despair, says the Lord. I am with you.
1 Peter 5:8 “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.”

Refuse to allow discouragement to kill your faith. Stay strong, and bolster your faith through reading, hearing, understanding and agreeing with My Word, says the Lord. Keep close tabs on your thoughts and make adjustments where necessary to maintain a strong and undeniable faith. Faith is your greatest asset, and must be protected at all cost.
Hebrews 11:6 “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”

This is a time when you can and must release all things from the past so that you can move forward in My will and purposes. Cut the ties that bind or keep you bound through disappointment and failure. Keep your focus on the eternal now, and stay ever present with Me, says the Lord. I am doing a mighty liberating work in your hearts and minds. You would do well to cooperate with this work and set your sights on freedom.

THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 5/14/12:
A spiritual time frame is before you, a time in which I will give unusual signs so that you may know that I am with you and that I am at work among you. Therefore, watch. Look and listen for My intervention into your lives with unusual signs that will confirm that which I am doing, says the Lord.

You are currently in a time of rediscovery and recovery of things that have been lost to you, things that you once possessed either mentally, emotionally, physically or spiritually. You will have a sense of freedom that is beyond words to describe and will come from the very core of your being. This is a subtle work of My Spirit, says the Lord.
Luke 4:18-19 “The Spirit of the LORD is upon me, because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed; to proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD.”

Stay focused, and refuse to be scattered through trying to take on more than you can effectively handle. Take the time necessary to establish yourself in peace and tranquility so that the enemy cannot find an inroad. Confusion and chaos are the devil’s playground, but I have given you the peace that surpasses all natural understanding. Settle down in the emotional and mental stability that I have provided, says the Lord.
Philippians 4:6-7 “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

Resist the temptation to get into condemnation when things don’t turn out as you expected they would. Those things that you perceive as being mistakes serve to set the boundaries of your spiritual flow. I would have you pay attention to those boundaries and rejoice in receiving course corrections. I am with you to keep you on the narrow path to your destiny, says the Lord.

Be open and receive all that I have for you, says the Lord. It will come with a very soft but powerful anointing.
Hebrews 4:10 “For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His…”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/8/12:
As you are led by My Spirit you will become more acutely aware of what you can reveal and what you must conceal. Some things are to be told and some things are to be held close to your heart. Often it is a matter of circumstance and timing. All you have to do is be sensitive to the spiritual flow, and set a watch over the words of your mouth and wait for the unction of My Spirit, says the Lord.
Matthew 7:6 “Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces.”
THE TRUMET by BILL BURNS — 5/7/12:
My beloved, it is indeed a time in which you can grow; even exceedingly and abundantly beyond all that you can imagine. So, I say now, plant your seeds; water them; hold them under the tension of faith, for My word never returns void, but it always brings forth that which was spoken. Enjoy My presence and be filled with the gladness that I have for you. Come to the place where your joy is unspeakable and full of glory. Come into My peace, which passes all understanding. And, remember that I am not only with you; I am for you. I am here to lead, guide, and to bless you with all goodness. Receive!

Refuse to allow fear and intimidation to keep you from moving into the next phase of your gifting and calling. The enemy would have you get stuck in a place of insecurity, but I am calling you to have confidence in Me, says the Lord, to empower you to do all that is necessary. I am your strength and your shield.
Psalms 28:7 “The LORD is my strength and my shield; My heart trusted in Him, and I am helped; Therefore my heart greatly rejoices, And with my song I will praise Him.”

Certain aspects of your life are being re-arranged so that you can see more completely My divine influence. Your environment and circumstances demand all the interest and thought that you are willing to give. But, it is My desire to get your attention, to draw your attention away from yourself and worldly concerns so that I can manifest and express My kingdom in tangible ways in, around, and through you, says the Lord. Yield to this work, so that I can establish you in divine order.
Isaiah 48:6 “You have heard; see all this. And will you not declare it? I have made you hear new things from this time, even hidden things, and you did not know them.”

I am unlocking another dimension of spiritual revelation, available to those who seek to know and understand My kingdom.

Then, come to Me with expectation.
Luke 11:9 “So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 5/2/12:
Resist the temptation to presume. At this moment you can only see part of the picture and not the whole thing, and presumption at this point would be disastrous. Stay present with Me, says the Lord, and I will take you one day at a time, one step at a time, with enough wisdom to deal with today. Keep the faith and trust Me that it’s all coming together nicely. Don’t worry!
Matthew 6:34 “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”

Prepare your heart for changes both great and small. Some things will only enhance your environment cosmetically, while other changes will affect you spiritually in a profound way. Yet other changes will affect your work or play. Be flexible and ready to embrace all that I have for you, says the Lord. But, also watch for seductions that would take you out of the flow of My Spirit. I will lead you in the way of peace.
Isaiah 55:12 “For you shall go out with joy, and be led out with peace; the mountains and the hills shall break forth into singing before you, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.”
