Sometimes it seems like you are walking through a minefield. These are times when you have to carefully consider every step with an acute awareness of your circumstances and surroundings. But know that I am with you to guide you through with divine precision, says the LORD. I will help and protect you.
Psalm 32:8 “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 4/29/19
Be an overcomer. Train yourself to resist temptation. If you maintain your life in the Spirit then the Holy Spirit will empower you to resist Satan and his temptations.
1 Peter 5:8-9 “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.”

I am preparing you for things that are beyond your imagination or consideration. As you determine to live according to the moving of My Spirit, you will be amazed at what you can accomplish. But you must not settle for where you are now, for it is only a stepping stone to greater things, says the LORD. Trust Me to lead you to your destiny.
John 14:12 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.”

Watch for opportunities to extend yourself beyond old limitations. Break out of the box that you have constructed for yourself, and consider your options. Reach further, go higher and deeper so that your understanding is broadened. Growth will come when you make a place for it, says the LORD.
Luke 13:7-9 “Then he said to the keeper of his vineyard, “Look, for three years I have come seeking fruit on this fig tree and find none. Cut it down; why does it use up the ground?” But he answered and said to him, “Sir, let it alone this year also, until I dig around it and fertilize it. And if it bears fruit, well. But if not, after that you can cut it down.””

The complexities of life will require that you tackle one aspect at a time because there are many moving parts. Do not take anything for granted, and refuse to presume that you understand more than you do. Remember that I am with you to help you when you ask for wisdom and direction, says the LORD.
Proverbs 16:18 “Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.”

You have been in a virtual desert spiritually, and you have had to fight to resist being lulled to sleep. Open your eyes wide. Your desert experience is almost over. You will soon be revitalized to achieve greater heights and a level of spiritual clarity that you have not even imagined. This will not automatically happen to you, but will be yours when you seek, stretch and strain to truly know Me, says the LORD.
1 John 5:20 “And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.”

Be flexible and move with the change of season, both naturally and spiritually. Also be steadfast and immovable in your relationship with Me, says The LORD. I AM your anchor, your safe haven, and your navigational star. When you are uncertain about your life and circumstances, look up. Look to Me for wisdom and direction.
Psalm 84:5 “Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, whose heart is set on pilgrimage.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 4/22/19
Allow Me to give you resurrection life–Spirit life! If you live in the flesh instead of the Spirit you will not have spiritual vision or understanding. Do not forget that these are the end times, a time in which you need to be led by Me. It is each one’s choice. Choose life!

Stay true to what you know is righteous. Do not deviate from the leading of My Spirit, says The LORD. When you try to twist or alter the Word to suit your position and purpose, you are in dangerous spiritual territory.
Deuteronomy 12:32 “Whatever I command you, be careful to observe it; you shall not add to it nor take away from it.”

Beloved, any kind of hatred in your life as a born-again, Spirit filled believer is not acceptable. Any response other than that of My Spirit in you is not suitable. Vitriol is not of Me for I am a God of love and am no respecter of persons. The warfare that is admissible is spiritual warfare against the devil and his demons, says The LORD. It is time for every child of God to make that distinction.
Galatians 5:22-24 “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.”

Some of you, My people, need a break from the monotonous grind whether mentally or physically. You need fresh perspective of your life and purpose and the time to deliberately see through spiritual eyes. It is time to reset. Re-establish yourself in divine motivation to get beyond where you are stuck, says The LORD.
Ecclesiastes 3:1 “To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven.”

Honest evaluation of your life and circumstances will reveal that which keeps you from living in the Spirit. There are problems that need your attention and adjustment both internally and externally before you can thrive in My Kingdom. There are things you need to embrace and things you need to release in order to be in a position for blessings and progression, says The LORD. I will lead you in the way you should go.
Psalm 78:52 “But He made His own people go forth like sheep, and guided them in the wilderness like a flock.”

You are in a time of preparation when you can formulate a strategy that will accommodate the coming changes. There are options and opportunities that can be optimized to give you the most effective approach to your unfolding future. Ask Me for the wisdom and guidance you need to proceed, says The LORD.
Proverbs 2:6 “For The LORD gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 4/15/19
I am for you, and I am with you to remind you of the seasons that you are going through. Stay alert so that I might lead you and guide you along the way. I am the Way. Come and follow Me.
John 14:6 “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

The strength and power of the internal work that you have done will be revealed by your thoughts, actions, and the words of your mouth. There are areas in your life where self-control is still an issue. Victory can only be achieved as you yield to the work of My Spirit, says The LORD.
2 Corinthians 3:18 “But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of The LORD, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of The LORD.”

You will be facing and making many choices in the days ahead. How do you know what is right and best? Ask Me to show you the way to go. Spiritual discernment is more important than ever in your options and evaluations. So, calm your soul and seek wisdom, 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.”

I am opening a new chapter in your life. The last chapter is over and done, and the conclusions are no longer relevant. Position yourself to step into what I have prepared for you. Step into the newness of life in the Spirit. Rise above your history and be done with regrets and condemnation, 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.”

Those issues that have been on the back burner, so to speak, can soon be put to rest. They will be things that have kept you tied to the past and hindered you from moving on. This is a time of extrication! But you will have to revisit that which has delayed your progression and growth one last time, says The LORD. You will have the confidence necessary when you walk this time out in the Spirit.
Proverbs 3:26 “For The LORD will be your confidence, and will keep your foot from being caught.”

There are and will be many things that need your attention, but planning is one thing and obsession is another. Refuse to allow these issues to distract from the greater need of spending time with Me. I want you to be aware of My presence and to be sensitive to the wisdom and guidance that I will give you, says The LORD. Then, you can walk in perfect peace.
Isaiah 26:3 “You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 4/8/19
Focus on Me. Stay connected so that I might bring you into My purposes for this season. If you stay connected to Me you will grow in spiritual gifting and understanding! It is time.
Ephesians 4:12-13 “For the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, 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.”

Take stock to see the areas in your life where you have been disobedient to My word. Those are the places where the enemy can enter in and wreak havoc. If you are uncertain, ask Me to show you where you fall short of complete obedience, and deliberately make the correction. Only then will you reap the fruit of obedience, says The LORD.
Romans 6:16 “Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness?”

Pay attention and be aware of My leading, for I impart wisdom and direction in every situation. You are not beyond My reach nor are you unworthy of My help, says The LORD. Refuse to dump down into self-degradation, but rather rise to a new spiritual level where you can receive all that I have for you.
Romans 8:1 “There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.”

Many of you are making plans for the future, but you must be honest with yourself that your intentions and expectations are subject to change. Flexibility is a must because actual circumstances will change your perspective. Realize that false assumptions can only produce disappointment, says The LORD.
Colossians 3:2 “Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.”

To those who have developed a habit of negativity and complaining, I want you to begin by counting your blessings. Focus on what is right and good in your life regardless of how insignificant it seems. By doing this you will be sowing the seeds of righteousness and blessing. It is time to stop seeing yourself as a victim of life’s circumstances and change the outcome of your life by being grateful for the small things, says The LORD.
Galatians 6:7 “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.”

A very strong anointing has been released on those who sincerely desire to completely yield to Me. This anointing will give you strength and protection as you move forward in My purposes. And I tell you honestly that breakthrough is imminent. I will give you the wisdom needed to make the most of this time, says The LORD. Persevere!
Romans 8:25 “But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 4/1/19
You can live in victory, but you must apply yourself. By the word apply I mean that you must resist Satan’s attacks of temptation. If you do so, victory will come. Victory produces liberty, and liberty becomes the freedom that I want you to live in.
James 4:7 “Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.”

It is of utmost importance that you align your heart and mind to be in complete unity with Me. You can do this when My Spirit is active within you. Set yourself to walk and live in the Spirit. Only then will you have the anointing to express My thoughts, feelings, purposes and desires, says The LORD.
Romans 12:2 “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”
