This is a time like no other for you to rely on Me and stay close. Stand strong in faith and be courageous in the face of adversity. I AM your God. I know you and love you. You are under My protection, and I will guide you, says the Lord.
Psalm 91:1-7 “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you.”

Refuse to get overwhelmed with the things you have to deal with. This is a new day, and you must take one step at a time as you move forward. Be deliberate in making choices line up with My Word. Let righteousness reign, says the LORD.
Psalm 55:22 “Cast your burden on the LORD, and He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be overthrown.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 8/13/18:
I am calling to My people to remind them to live by faith so that they can possess the blessings of the season. These are the days in which faith is required-the days in which I want My people to exercise a true and deliberate trust in My attributes. Ask of Me, but do so in and by faith.
Matthew 7:7-11 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good tings to those who ask Him.”

You will begin to make substantial progress in places that have been hard to navigate. This is not a time to get discouraged, but rather a time to trust that all things are working together for your good, says the LORD. You’ve worked hard to get this far, and your efforts will be rewarded.
Psalm 27:13 “I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.”

Even though you encounter unexpected situations, you must take things in stride and not allow that which is temporary to interrupt the flow of the eternal Spirit, says the LORD. The stress of this time will pass and you will be stronger and wiser than you were before. Every day is an opportunity to see Me at work in your life. You are truly being transformed, but transformation is sometimes painful.
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.”

Ask and I will give you the wisdom you need to solve difficult problems and to set you on the right path to fulfill destiny. Complexities that are beyond your understanding need My input, says the LORD. You cannot do this alone. Let Me help you.
Psalms 46:1 “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 8/8/18:
Be calm and refuse to allow circumstances to upset you. Remember that I have everything under control, and you need not worry. This time will require faith and patience for you to get through successfully. Steer clear of fear and allow My Spirit to guide every step, 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.”

It is important that you communicate clearly in these days. Misunderstanding could create unnecessary problems. Be open, honest, and willing to listen carefully to others in order to alleviate frustration. Presumption is your enemy, says the LORD. Stay with what you know to be true. Apply the truth of My Word to every situation.
Psalm 91:4 “He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 8/6/18:
This is the season of rewards, which shall be given to those who have followed and served Me. Allow your faith to be quickened by the Holy Spirit so that it will be fully activated. Faith that is active is able to receive from Me, says the LORD.
James 2:26 “For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.”

As landscapes take on different textures with the change of season, so will your life reflect internal spiritual growth. Move with the flow of transformation. You have come a long way, but you are not yet perfected. Internal change will be expressed externally, says the LORD. Refuse the temptation to suppress who you are becoming for fear of rejection.
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.”

Let there be an end to whining and be thankful. I have been with you every step of the way. I have shown you things that you would never have been aware of. I have directed you and kept you. You are My chosen. Strive to maintain sweet relationship with Me, says the LORD, and access the strength and perfection that I have provided.
1 Chronicles 16:34 “Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.”

Great reward awaits those who have been unwavering and diligent to do all that I ask. I call you good and faithful servants, and it is time to reap the benefits of your service. What you have done in secret will be rewarded openly, says the LORD. Well done!
Matthew 25:21 “His LORD said to him, Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your LORD.”

Stay protected within the boundaries of My will. Being truly righteous will keep doors to the enemy closed so that you are not vulnerable. Examine yourself to see and understand the areas in your life where you are spiritually weak. Stand strong in relationship with Me, says the LORD. I will direct you away from potential danger and keep you safe.
Psalm 4:8 “I will both lie down in peace, and sleep; for You alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.”
