SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  8/31/16:
I have set you to be light in the world that disspells spiritual darkness.  As the darkness abounds more and more, your light must shine brighter and brighter.  When you maintain relationship with Me, you will not walk in darkness.  Push back the darkness where you find it, and do not allow it to overtake you, says the LORD.
John 8:12  “Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, ‘I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.'”

Your spiritual foundation was founded on Christ and is still solid.  What you built according to the dictates of men and religion is being torn down so that you will be ready to build again according to My Spirit, says the LORD.  You are about to begin again, and this new beginning will surpass every other beginning.  There will be a tantalizing sense of mystery founded on hope and promise along with an excitement of expectation of My purposes being fulfilled.  This newness of life will go beyond anything you have imagined or believed.  However, the power of the cleansing that you have experienced internally and externally must be maintained.
1 Corinthians 3:11  “For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”   


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  8/29/16:
I will give you that which you need.  I will bring My word into your life with such strength and power that it will become the lens through which you look.  And, as you view your circumstances and the things that are taking place around you through My lens, you will have the understanding of which way to go.  You will have an understanding of what you should do.  You will have understanding, for it is by My Spirit that I speak to you.  It is by My Spirit that I lead you.  And, it is by My Spirit that I reveal to you, My people, those things which you need to know and to do, says the LORD.


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  8/29/16:

Sharpen your awareness so that you can see clearly the direction that I want to take you in.  You will only know the significance of your thoughts and actions of this time when you begin to bear fruit.  Pay close attention to the unction of My Spirit, the still small voice that will direct your steps, says the LORD.
Psalms 37:23   “The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD, and He delights in his way.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  8/26/16:
Look to your circumstances to see what is broken, for there is a parallel condition spiritually.  I AM showing you signs in the natural that mirror your spiritual state.  Make the necessary adjustments on all levels so that your life will be in good working order, says the LORD.  You will be able to perceive the reflection of the unseen realm through what you can actually see.
Psalms 123:2   “Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their masters, as the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes look to the LORD our God, until He has mercy on us.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  8/25/16:
Press through the hindrances in your life and reach for Me, says the LORD.  Freedom is your right in My kingdom, but you must not allow the enemy to keep you from reaching your goal.  Take the time to identify and define the reason your are not moving higher spiritually.  Then, do all that is in your power 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  —  8/24/16:
This is a time to prepare for the days ahead.  This preparation will include cleaning up and clearing out your spiritual, emotional and mental space so that you enter the next phase of your existence with only that which will produce good fruit, says the LORD.  Consider those things in your life that have become a hindrance to blessings and make the necessary changes now.
Proverbs 4:12   “When you walk, your steps will not be hindered, and when you run, you will not stumble.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  8/23/16:
Pay attention!  I will show you the way and give directions as you gear up for the new spiritual year.  You must quiet your soul so that you can perceive My signals, says the LORD.  Be particularly still, alert, and receptive.  Position yourself by faith to hear My still, small voice.
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!”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  8/22/16:
Don’t stop. Don’t quit the race. Run the race in such a way that you will win it.  Run and you shall find that you have extreme energy and extreme speed because I will anoint you with My purposes in this dispensation and in this very time that you find yourself in.  For, you are in the last stages of the race. Run the race now to receive everything I have for you.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  8/22/16:
Know that when you are going through a rough patch it is for the purpose of learning something valuable about yourself as you relate to Me, says the LORD.  Look for the silver lining in every dark cloud, and appreciate the opportunities you are given to grow and gain spiritual strength.
Job 12:22   “He uncovers deep things out of darkness, and brings the shadow of death to light.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  8/19/16:
Take advantage of every opportunity that presents itself to be kind and considerate of your fellow human beings.  Be generous in your attitudes towards others, and be helpful when you can.  But, I say, do this from a heart that has been regenerated through My love for you.  Recognize and understand My grace and great mercy, says the LORD.  Do not forget that you are being transformed into My image.
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.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  8/18/16:
Establish your faith in Me by learning what I will do.  Bolster your faith by remembering what I have done in the past.  Remember that you cannot be in fear and have faith at the same time.  You must trust that I hear and answer the prayers of the righteous, says the LORD.  Activate your faith by believing I will do what I have said in My word.
Romans 10:17   “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  8/17/16:
Step back for a moment from the intensity of being on the front lines to gain perspective of your overall position.  Know that where you are now and how you deal with current issues will be a determining factor in the direction and outcome of your future.  It is not often that you need to make this assessment, but this is one of those times, says the LORD.  I will help you see where you are.
Jeremiah 33:3   “Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.”

THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  8/15/16:
Stand up!  Rise up!  Become one with Me and you will indeed have the victory that is promised in My word.  Fight the good fight of faith.  Declare your victory before you can see it.  Rise up against the enemy of your soul.  Do the warfare and you will be victorious and come through in great glory at this time in this high place.  I AM raising you up to be a glorious church, a glorious people.  Believe it, receive it, and apply it.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  8/15/16:
Be attentive, and I will show you all that you must do.  Do not underestimate My ability to break in on you and give you the wisdom and understanding necessary to deal with your current situation.  I know you.  I know your heart.  I know what is best for you, and I will reveal My plans to you.  Pay attention, says the LORD.
1 Corinthians 4:5   “Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the LORD comes, who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness and reveal the counsels of the hearts.  Then each one’s praise will come from God.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  8/12/16:
When you ask for wisdom and direction, do not be afraid that you will not receive it.  Your fear puts you in a position of being double-minded, and you will most certainly not receive.  Rather, ask for wisdom and be confident that I will give you what you ask and will show you the way, says the LORD.  It is My good pleasure to speak to you in ways that you can understand.  Be bold.
Psalms 138:3   “In the day when I cried out, You answered me, and made me bold with strength in my soul.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  8/11/16:
Beloved, you are still in a very dry time spiritually as you finish up what you started some time ago.  You have to get through this time before you can find the fresh anointing for the next season.  Don’t get ahead of yourself.  Take one step at a time and deal with one thing at a time to get through this tedious place that will require patience and perseverance, says the LORD.  I will give you the strength to endure.
James 1:4  “But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.”

Isaiah 60:2  “For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the LORD will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  8/9/16:
Put away from you the things that prevent your coming to Me in simplicity of faith.  I speak of those things that you stress over and worry about.  You must let go of everything that hinders your walk in the Spirit.  You cannot live in fear and be in the Spirit at the same time.  You must choose the better position in order to have sweet communion with Me, says the LORD.
Galatians 5:16   “I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  8/8/16:
When life’s circumstances become too complicated and convoluted, you must get back to basics.  It is time to get back to the word of God and redemption through the Cross of Calvary.  Establish yourself again in things that actually matter in terms of eternity.  Refocus and regain your sense of simplicity, says the LORD.
1 Corinthians 1:18   “For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  8/5/16:
The old season is beginning to wind down.  This process has to be complete before you gear up for the next move of My Spirit, says the LORD.  This is a time to clean up and clear up lingering issues of the past two years in order to be ready for what is next.  Search your heart and mind to know what needs to be done.
Galatians 6:4   “But let each one examine his own work, and then he will have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  8/4/16:
Take every opportunity that presents itself to adjust and correct situations that have been difficult and wrong.  Adjustments will open the way to move forward without hindrance, says the LORD.  But, you will have to deal with things that would be easier to ignore.  Set yourself on a path of truth and righteousness.
Proverbs 4:18   “But the path of the just is like the shining sun, that shines ever brighter unto the perfect day.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  8/3/16:
For those who can receive it, you are about to embark on a new spiritual journey.  It will present unusual risks, but will also have the potential for great reward.  This journey will require the kind of determination that is born out of a struggle for life and freedom.  I will give you the strength necessary to achieve your goal, says the LORD.
Psalms 84:5   “Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, whose heart is set on pilgrimage.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  8/2/16:
Monitor your reactions to changes that are forced upon you.  Do not overreact, but rather take them in stride and stay in peace.  Most of what is changing at this time will be beneficial to you in the long run even though it is a bother and irritation to have to deal with now.  Trust Me to give you the strength and wisdom to do all that is necessary, 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.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  8/1/16:
It has been spoken over you that the blessings of this season are for you.  These blessings you may receive simply by believing in that which I have spoken about, which I have confirmed by My word, says the LORD.  So, be blessed in this time.  Activate your faith.  Let the voice of the LORD be heard.  Let His signs be received.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  8/1/16:
Make sure you nourish your spirit with that which is pure and holy.  Be diligent to feed on the truth and righteousness of My word instead of things that disrupt your peace, says the LORD.  You are what you eat!
Psalms 37:3   “Trust in the LORD, and do good; dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.”
