THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  8/31/15
I say to you, these are dangerous times.  Therefore, I am calling you to a higher level of understanding.  A higher level and ability of being able to see and hear and to know the direction that you are to walk in so that you can be one with Me.  Stay under the shelter of My outspread wings so that I can protect you, lead you, and guide you.  The travesty of this world need not touch you.   Even though you will see it all around you, you will find yourself in a secure and very safe habitation in Me, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  8/31/15:
Look to Me for answers.  Ask and receive; only believe.  I am with you to give you wisdom and to direct your steps.  I will establish you and strengthen you to proceed on the path that is before you, says the Lord.  Do not be afraid.
1 Peter 5:10  “But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  8/28/15:
Simplify and fortify.  The days ahead will require that you focus your attention and stay protected.  If you are too scattered, you will miss the importance of the season and make mistakes that could be hard to fix.  I will direct your steps, but you must be clear enough to hear and obey My leading, says the Lord.
Proverbs 3:6  “In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  8/27/15:
You have endured plenty of resistance and opposition to what I have asked you to do, but your perseverance is paying off.  Now you must move forward into the purposes for which I have called you, and you will have new hope and freedom to do so.  The past is behind you, so reach beyond your grasp to achieve what may seem to be impossible.  I am your help, 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  —  8/26/15:
A shift in direction and priorities is in process, which could cause you to feel lost.  If you will refuse to allow your emotions to gain control at this time and keep moving forward, you will realize that you are not lost at all.  You are changed, and the changes that you have endured will ultimately make you more stable, says the Lord.  Ask and I will give you the anointing of ease. 
Psalms 51:10  “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  8/25/15:
This is a time when small corrections will reap big benefits.  Don’t overlook anything that grabs your attention even for a moment, for I will show you the power of paying attention to details.  And, I will cause the insignificant to become significant, says the Lord.  Sharpen your focus to see the tiny things, and magnify your ability to hear My still, small voice.
Proverbs 4:1  “Hear, my children, the instruction of a father, and give attention to know understanding.”


THE TRUMPET by  BILL BURNS  —  8/24/15:
I saw storm clouds gathering and out the clouds came lightning with thunder.  And, the Lord spoke to me and said, “Tell My people to find themselves in safe spiritual habitations for the days ahead of them will be laced with danger and judgment.  Come into secure habitations.  First and foremost you must walk in the Spirit, for evil is about to rain down.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  8/24/15:
If you will watch and learn, I will give you fresh perspective that will help you better understand where you are and where you are going.  But, you must pay close attention to what I show you, says the Lord.  Positioning yourself according to My will and purposes will guarantee your success. 
Proverbs 5:1-2   “My son, pay attention to my wisdom; lend your ear to my understanding, that you may preserve discretion, and your lips may keep knowledge.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  8/21/15:
In a vision I saw a man making his way up a very steep mountain to reach the place where he would build his house.  As he climbed he got tangled in vines and weeds that hindered his ascent.  And, I heard the Lord say, “I’m taking you, My people, to a new dwelling place in the Spirit.  It is higher than you have ever been.  However, the enemy of your soul will try to prevent your progression.  You must resist the temptations that entangle you and keep you from your destination.  I am with you.”
Galatians 5:1  “Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  8/20/15:
I want you to learn to be quiet and shut out all the noise and voices except for Mine, says the Lord.  You cannot have sound judgment or make good decisions when there are too many voices around you.  You cannot discern properly until you can find a place of peace both externally and internally.  Be focused and still.
Psalms 46:10   “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  8/19/15:
Your attention has been divided, and you feel scattered and pulled in several directions.   Refuse to allow your activities to cause you to be unfocused.  Your ultimate and divine priority is to stay connected spiritually to Me.  To do so will require dedication and supreme effort, but you are up to the task.  You just needed a little reminder, says the Lord.
James 4:8   “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.  Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  8/18/15:
You are in a time of separation when you will divide the precious from the vile.  You have gone through previous seasons of doing this, but every time that you respond in obedience to My directive, you come higher spiritually.  When you do what I ask, you achieve greater clarity of vision and purpose, says the Lord.
Jeremiah 15:19   “Therefore thus says the LORD: “If you return, then I will bring you back; you shall stand before Me; if you take out the precious from the vile, you shall be as My mouth. Let them return to you, but you must not return to them.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  8/17/15:
Have you heard, My people, the things that you must now do so that you can be free from bondage and live absolutely in the purpose and the power of the spirit of life with liberty?   This day I set you free of everything that has held you in the past and show you the road that leads into the future.  Walk this path that is before you — the path of light.  And, on the path of light you shall be renewed.  You shall be healed.  You shall then be able to receive all that I have promised because you have determined to walk with Me on the path of light.  Do it today, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  8/17/15:
I have given you the grace to move through the challenges you face with grace.  I have enabled you to do what is necessary to overcome.  Refuse to become a victim, and resist the temptation to quit rather than press through, says the Lord.  My grace is sufficient!
2 Corinthians 12:9a  “And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  8/14/15:
Take time to rest from all of the activity and stress that you have endured.  Let go mentally and emotionally of everything that has been weighing heavily upon you.  Give your burden to Me, says the Lord, and I will give you the kind of rest that allows you to access healing and restoration in your spirit, soul, and body. 
Psalms 55:22   “Cast your burden on the LORD, and He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS —  8/13/15:
I have brought you by a way that you have not been before.  You have encountered unexpected challenges and have had opportunities to overcome.  Yet, through having to face obstacles and difficulties you have become stronger and more determined to walk with Me, says the Lord.  Therefore, I will open the doors of promise and delight before you.
Psalms 37:4  “Delight yourself also in the LORD, and He shall give you the desires of your heart.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  8/12/15:
Beloved, I am working in you through your circumstances to help you identify and root out all rebellion.  Your submission to Me, says the Lord, will produce good fruit.  I have given you the ability to discern both good and evil so that you can submit to what is good, and resist the enemy.  Do so with integrity and be blessed.
James 4:7  “Therefore submit to God.  Resist the devil and he will flee from you.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  — 8/11/15:
Do not pull back or give up on what you started; you are not finished.  Keep moving forward.  You have already accomplished more than you thought you could, but you must continue to be strong and resolute in bringing to completion what you have been given to do, says the Lord.  Rely on Me to give you the wisdom and strength necessary.  I am with you.
Isaiah 58:11  “The LORD will guide you continually, and satisfy your soul in drought, and strengthen your bones; you shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  8/10/15:
I would have you to be an overcomer.  Overcomers are those who fight through every circumstance–every situation that is established against them.  The overcomer is the one who casts down the vein imaginations and the arguments that the enemy brings against them.  The overcomer lives in My promises.  Choose to be an overcomer and begin today by the renewing of your mind, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  8/10/15:
When you answered the call to come into My Kingdom, I asked you to do what is right in every instance–not what is convenient.  I want you to be objective and honest in all things.  Do not be swayed by emotional prejudice, but be righteous, says the Lord.
Psalms 5:12   “For You, O LORD, will bless the righteous; with favor You will surround him as with a shield.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  — 8/7/15:
You are in a time of waiting, but it would behoove you to exercise patience while maintaining an open heart, open mind, and open hand.  If you will let go of unreasonable expectations, this time will pass with ease.  Trying to rush things will only produce frustration and attract opposition.  You can endure this time with grace as you put your trust in Me, says the Lord.
James 1:4  “But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  — 8/6/15:
In a vision I saw a beach in a cove with beautiful, white sand.  I both saw and heard the ocean tide coming in.  There was great peace in that place, but I knew that beyond the breaking waves a war was raging on the high seas.  And, I heard the Lord say, “Even when the world is at war with nation set against nation and people against people, you can find peace in My presence.  I AM your safe haven in the midst of war, storms and evil.”
Proverbs 29:25  “The fear of man brings a snare, but whoever trusts in the LORD shall be safe.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  8/5/15:
Ask of Me, says the Lord.  There are things you need that you do not have because you have not come to Me from the depth of your desire and trust to know that I hear and answer your requests.  I know everything about you, and I even know what you need before you ask.  But, it is important for you to participate in the spiritual process.  Come to Me.
James 4:2   “You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain.  You fight and war.  Yet you do not have because you do not ask.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS —  8/4/15:
Even though the temptation is great to make comparisons and measure yourself and others according to arbitrary standards, it is not good.  It is an effort in futility and has no positive outcome at all.  My desire is that you look to Me for direction, guidance, and correction and allow Me to lead you in ways that will have a good outcome, says the Lord, and leave others alone. 
2 Corinthians 10:12   “For we dare not class ourselves or compare ourselves with those who commend themselves.  But they, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  8/3/15:
I am calling to My warriors.  I’m calling to those who have the heart of a warrior — to those who will go to war.  I’m calling to those who will rise up in a position of faith and seize not only a moment in this season, but the very promises themselves.  I’m calling you to take the prize of the high calling, the calling that I have brought you forth into your destiny.  Walk the path that is before you and obtain the victory.  For, this is the season of supernatural empowerment in which I will bring the glory of My kingdom to bear upon the hearts of the warriors to take the victory from Satan.  Take the victory now and believe, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  8/3/15:
Come into rest where you throw all of your cares on Me.  My presence is the only place of restoration and rejuvenation.  I know what you’ve been through and the stressful burden you have carried.  Let go of everything that has sapped your strength and vitality.  Come and be renewed, 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.”
