Issues that you have been struggling with can now be settled. As you quiet your thoughts and emotions you will see the spiritual work that has been done in your life through this process. There are things you would not have understood about yourself without the challenges you have faced. The time is coming for a fresh start. Be sure that your next steps are devoid of defilement and regret, says The LORD.
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.”

When it seems as though you have been far away it is because the world atmosphere is becoming more polluted both spiritually and naturally. When it is harder for you to get in the Spirit, you must dig deeper and reach higher than you ever have before. Break through the interference to the place where we can commune and where peace abounds, says The LORD. Seek and you will find!
Acts 17:26-28a “And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek The LORD, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and have our being.”

Are you listening? Are you paying attention? Now is the time to begin to move forward into my purposes. The times and seasons before you will be exciting if you walk with Me.
Isaiah 45:3 “I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places, that you may know that I, The LORD, Who call you by your name, Am the God of Israel.”

Even though your challenges have been daunting, you will now get into your stride once again and gain the victory. Take a moment to realize the value of what you endured. There is a certain satisfaction that comes from knowing you can call on Me in times of trouble and I will answer, says The LORD. Your faith and resolve are stronger than ever.
Deuteronomy 31:6 “Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for The LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.”

Examine yourself to see and know if your spiritual foundation is firm. Your foundation is your belief that I AM alive, that I know you, and will help you navigate your life on earth, says The LORD. You become weak when you feel like you are alone in the world without guidance. Check yourself to see if you stand on the solid foundation of faith in Me.
2 Corinthians 13:5 “Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you? — unless indeed you are disqualified.”

Righteousness is a choice. Personal conviction will establish a base for understanding that which needs to be done to overcome wrong attitudes and motives. You have made a lot of progress in spiritual growth, but there is more work to do. As you live and walk in the Spirit, a deeper level of internal work will enable you to prevail over evil, says The LORD. Come near to Me with an open heart and mind and I will give revelation.
Romans 16:19 “For your obedience has become known to all. Therefore I AM glad on your behalf; but I want you to be wise in what is good, and simple concerning evil.”

This is a time when you can make great leaps forward. Your spiritual growth will increase exponentially. Set your will to cooperate with this move of My Spirit in your life. Set your expectations on Me, says The LORD, and not on world systems and conditions. This opportunity will depend on where you focus your thoughts, intentions and desires.
Luke 12:34 “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

In a vision I could see columns of fire surrounding me that would keep the enemy at bay. And I heard The LORD say, “This is the fire of the Spirit, My power, that will defeat the devil. Above all you need the fire of My Spirit to do all that I call you to do in the days ahead. I will empower you to do all that I have set before you to accomplish. Have no regrets. No fear. No dread. No weakness. Rise up and let the fire of the Spirit consume your carnal nature.”
Hebrews 12:29 “For our God is a consuming fire.”

Prepare to go through the gates that I AM opening before you, says The LORD. You have not been this way before, so you must be sensitive to My leading. Listen carefully as I speak to your heart and give you the wisdom necessary for you to move into the next phase of your life and being. I will direct your steps.
Isaiah 62:10 “Go through, Go through the gates! Prepare the way for the people; Build up, Build up the highway! Take out the stones, Lift up a banner for the peoples!”

Because of life’s circumstances and pressures, it will be easy to overreact and go beyond a reasonable response. These times require a healthy dose of self-control so that you do not go too far in the wrong direction. You would do well to carefully consider a correct and sensible reaction to every situation, says The LORD.
2 Peter 1:5-7 “But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love.”

Seriously consider where you have been and where you are now spiritually. Be done with the distractions that have accompanied the challenges you have faced and come closer to Me, says The LORD. Take the necessary steps that will actually position you to achieve victory, says The LORD.
Philippians 3:12 “Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.”

The difficulties that you face will be easily overcome as long as you put your faith and hope in Me, says The LORD. Continue to seek Me and deliberately come into My presence to acquire help and guidance. I Am your Living God. I am not a story from long ago or a Sunday-school fable. Come and partner with Me in all that you do, says The LORD.
Psalm 84:2 “My soul longs, yes, even faints for the courts of The LORD; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.”

You have come to a turning point where that which has concerned you is coming to a conclusion. As one chapter ends a new one begins. You can now evaluate the past season with objectivity to see what you might have done differently. This should not be a time of condemnation, but one of reflection and instruction. Take this opportunity to grow, says The LORD.
Proverbs 27:19 “As in water face reflects face, so a man’s heart reveals the man.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 8/4/19
Believe in Me. I AM for you. I will help you, and I will empower you. The enemy will surely come against you. However, greater is My Spirit in you.
1 John 4:4 “You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.”

Alignment is an important factor in your well-being. Spiritually it is important to be aligned with My Word of truth and with the leading of My Spirit. It is also vital to be aligned emotionally and mentally with righteous thoughts and intentions. And, if you do not sustain physical alignment you can experience weakness in your body. Your vitality in all areas will depend on maintaining a close relationship with Me, says The LORD.
Psalm 139:14 “I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well.”

Sometimes I say Yes. Sometimes I say No. Sometimes I say Whoa. It is up to you to develop your discernment and a hearing ear, which takes practice. Spend the time and make the effort to have a relationship with My Holy Spirit so that you can see and hear in the realm of the spirit, says The LORD.
Luke 11:13 “If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!”

You have been in a long season of setting things straight and of fixing that which needed attention. That season is coming to a close. There are still issues that need to be addressed before you can truly move on. Be diligent to do all that is necessary in order to sufficiently close the book on the past. Prepare to enter your new spiritual year with a clean slate, says The LORD.
Philippians 3:13 “Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead.”
