SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  — 12/31/14:
I want you to see the uniqueness of your life and the path that you have chosen. The paths of others have crossed yours and even been parallel with yours for a certain distance before separation.  But, ultimately, you are responsible for your own desires, choices, and direction.  Refuse to allow regret to overwhelm you nor consider what might have been or could have been.  Do not look back.  Walk with Me into the days ahead with the assurance that I will never leave you nor forsake you, says the Lord.
Philippians 3:13-14  “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, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  — 12/30/14:
I heard your request for fresh fire, and I have made that available to you.  But, you must stop thinking that things are on the decline.  Shift your focus to see life and light.  The most valuable days of your life occur when what you value comes into proper order. Your values will now align more perfectly with My will, says the Lord.
2 Chronicles 7:1   “When Solomon had finished praying, fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  — 12/29/14:
I hear the Lord saying, “What do you see? Do you see the door that is before you? Have you positioned yourself by faith to access what I am providing? Walk the path before you, and you will find what I have prepared for you. You will not miss it for it is your greatest desire to go on with Me. I will walk the path of life with you and I will reveal to you the greatness of your destiny. I encourage you to go higher than you have been before. I will be the breath beneath your wings that will lift you into spiritual places that you have not yet seen. Come, and enjoy the journey.”

This is the beginning of a time of elevation when you will need to set your sights on higher ground.  If you will activate your faith in this direction your access to spiritual revelation and growth will be amazing.  You must, however, make a deliberate decision to receive the greatest benefit  of this season, says the Lord.
Isaiah 49:11  “I will make each of My mountains a road, and My highways shall be elevated.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  — 12/26/14:
Shake off the things that have kept you preoccupied and tied to the world.  Today is a new day; live it with resolve to seek first My kingdom.  Set yourself to not only know about Me, or know about the spiritual realm, but to experience and live the truth that you have discovered.  I call you to be a true disciple, says the Lord.
Luke 14:27   “And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  — 12/25/14:
Be quiet and still.  Allow My love, joy and peace to inhabit your atmosphere so that there is nothing else–no worry, fear, rejection or condemnation.  Just Me.  I will be your companion, your strength in weakness, your clarity in the midst of confusion, your contentment in temptation.  Let Me be your all in all, says the Lord.  I am with you!
Isaiah 41:10   “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 12/24/14:
Set a watch for things that come up that will set you on the road to frustration and resentment, says the Lord.  The trials that you endure can result in greater strength and patience if you have the correct mindset.  Make the necessary adjustments to maintain spiritual integrity and peace.  I am with you to bring you through to victory.
2 Corinthians 2:14   “Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  — 12/23/14:
Your hunger for spiritual truth will begin with a desire to learn.  When you think you already have a good grasp and knowledge of My kingdom, you might find yourself at a standstill.  Growth is a sign of life.  This is a time to stir up your sense of curiosity to discover what you do not know and move forward with an excitement for what is yet to be discovered.  Revitalize your spiritual walk, says the Lord.
Matthew 7:7   “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  — 12/22/14:
Be cradled in the fullness of that which I have given to you.  For, the gifts that I have given to you will help you to prosper and to overcome all that the enemy brings against you.  They will help you to rise up into the fullness of your calling and all that which I have done on your behalf.  Maintain a position of knowing My love and holding yourself within the confines of that which I have given you.  Then you can say that everything is going to be okay, and the truth of that statement will permeate all that you are involved in.  You will not find yourself in a position of fear or condemnation.  This is My gift to you in this season–the overcoming and overpowering framework of My love for you, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  — 12/22/14
Refuse to allow grumbling, complaining, and self-pity to inhabit your spiritual atmosphere.  The challenges of this season are many and varied, but I have given you the ability to rise up, overcome, and be victorious in every situation.  Gratitude is a choice.  Allow thanksgiving to issue forth from your heart, and your environment will change, says the Lord.  Be grateful for what I have given you.
Psalms 100:4   “Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  — 12/19/14
Be strong and unwavering in times when distractions abound.  Stay connected to Me by not allowing anything unrighteous to rule your thoughts, emotions or behavior.  Then righteousness, peace and joy will be your trademark. I am calling you to be closer to Me and further from the things of the world than ever before.  You belong to Me, says the Lord.
Romans 14:17   “for the Kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  — 12/18/14
The enemy has released a wave of confusion and chaos that has created some stress.  However, you can easily rise above this negative atmosphere by staying present with Me and walking in the Spirit.  Refuse to allow anything to come between us, says the Lord.  Quiet yourself and stay calm as you settle yourself on solid spiritual ground.
Psalms 61:2  “From the end of the earth I will cry to You, when my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  — 12/17/14
I hear many of you, My people, asking, “When will you come, Lord?”   I understand your dismay at world conditions and the spiritual darkness that covers the earth, but the end is not yet.  What you must know is that I am with you in the realm of the Spirit and that I will not leave you.  I will guide you and give wisdom and the ability to gain the victory over the powers of darkness.  It is a great asset to be in My kingdom and to have access through faith to all that I have made available to you, says the Lord.  Be encouraged.
Romans 5:1-4   “Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.  And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 12/16/14:
Cream always rises to the top.  If you will allow Me, I will lead you into areas of expression that will reveal your innermost being and allow your strengths and giftings to rise up and pour out.  But, you must refrain from fantasy in order to allow your true nature to shine.  Stay honest with yourself and refuse the temptation to exaggerate or embellish who you are, says the Lord.  Humiliation will look good on you.
Psalms 34:2   “My soul shall make its boast in the LORD; the humble shall hear of it and be glad.” 


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  — 12/15/14:
I am speaking to you directly and very personally.  I know your situations and I know what is taking place in your circumstances.  I know what the enemy is doing to you and what the enemy has planned for you, but I have plans for you as well.  If you will depend on My plans and come to know My ways and walk this path that I am establishing before you, then you will receive everything that I have in store for you.  On this journey worry is defeated and unbelief is destroyed as you rise to a higher position of faith, knowledge and understanding of Me, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  — 12/15/14
This is a time of renewal when you need to consider renewing commitments of all kinds.  Don’t overlook the necessity of giving attention to this process that will improve, repair, and assure success.  Your deliberate consideration will result in a greater sense of order, says the Lord, and will also renew your spiritual strength. 
Isaiah 40:31  “But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  — 12/12/14:
When you are facing difficulties and disappointments, remember who you are–where you came from and who you belong to, says the Lord.  I have chosen you and called you by your name, and you belong to Me.  I am the King of Glory.  You are being transformed into My image.  Do not live beneath your station, but live by grace in My kingdom.
Isaiah 51:1  “Listen to Me, you who follow after righteousness, you who seek the LORD: Look to the rock from which you were hewn, and to the hole of the pit from which you were dug.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  — 12/11/14:
Although things have not worked out exactly as you had envisioned or hoped, there are valuable lessons in the process.  There are adjustments to be made in your actions and expectations that will be necessary to re-establish yourself in divine order, says the Lord.  Be flexible and wait for My wisdom before you forge ahead.
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.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  — 12/10/14:
Your recent situations have been a testing ground.  This is a prime time for you to learn from your mistakes as well as from the things you have done right.  Pay attention to the hardships and the victories.  Both are equally important to your spiritual positioning.  My desire is for you to see and understand the difference between walking in the Spirit and living in the flesh, says the Lord.
Romans 5:3-4   And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  — 12/9/14:
You are in the early stages–the very beginning of the current spiritual season.  And, you can barely tell a difference from the last season; the changes are imperceptible.  But, the subtleties are important and powerful.  Take the time to evaluate what has occurred in the past two months, and you will see more clearly the significance of what I am doing in your life, says the Lord.
Zechariah 4:10   “For who has despised the day of small things?”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  — 12/8/14:
I can see that the hearts of My people are in a better place than they have been.  I can see that the hearts of My people are rejoicing because they know that I am for them.  I can see them in this present situation and I am filled with joy for the very fact they are coming higher into this new season.  There is a process of elevation that is taking place.  There is the process of putting worry and fear down that has diminished and brought them into a place of extreme delight and joy in My kingdom, says the Lord.  And, this I say, continue this process and do not let the enemy steal from you the joy you have.  Be full of joy and the glory of God.  Enjoy the journey, says the Most Holy.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  — 12/8/14
Be diligent to do all that you have been given to accomplish.  This is not a time to slack off or procrastinate.  To do so would get you out of the flow of My Spirit.  Stay present with Me, and I will give you supernatural ability to perform even the most difficult of tasks, says the Lord.  Be strong and overcome.
Philippians 4:13   “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  — 12/5/14  
Refuse to give up or let up; keep pushing against the powers of darkness until you have complete breakthrough.  I have made a way of perfection in every circumstance.  But, you must stay in the flow of My Spirit.  This is a time when you need to mind your own business and maintain good boundaries for yourself and others.  Stay within the confines of righteous authority, says the Lord.
Psalms 138:8  “The LORD will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy, O LORD, endures forever; do not forsake the works of Your hands.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  — 12/4/14  
Rise up above worldly view–away from your cares and burdens–and seek Me.  For, surely I will be found by you, says the Lord.  True wisdom comes from My Spirit and not from the earth.  Do not invest your life and energy in that which is temporary, but live now in eternity by abiding in Me.  Allow the process of spiritual transformation to take place in your life now.
James 3:13-18   “Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom. But if you have bitter envy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth. This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic. For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy. Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  — 12/3/14:  
Watch for and take advantage of opportunities to walk in freedom, unrestrained by things that put you down.  I not only speak of your personal liberty, but of your ability to set others free.  If you are to live free from the tyranny of others, you must also be willing to release those who you have had the power to control.  Let go of all bondage, says the Lord.
2 Corinthians 3:17   “Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  — 12/2/14  
It is more important than ever that you actually live in Me and become aware of pitfalls.   There is a myriad of distractions that could take you off course if you aren’t paying attention.  Establish good priorities so that you can remain spiritually connected.  Do nothing apart from the moving of My Spirit, says the Lord.   
John 15:4   “Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.”  


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  — 12/1/14:
And, the Lord says, “If you will do that which is written in My Word, then you will indeed receive the benefits of the Kingdom of God that I have in store for you.  For, the storehouses are about to open, and the blessings are about to flow.  What I have reserved for you as the children of the end of the age will surprise all of you.  My goodness is about to come in unique and powerful ways–in ways that you cannot even fathom. But, let it be known to your spirit that I can give to you abundantly and exceedingly above all that you can imagine, think or believe.  Expect My goodness to come.  Embrace it today and receive it.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  — 12/1/14
Come out from the darkness that has kept you from being all you can be in My kingdom, says the Lord.  Let all oppression become a thing of the past.  Move into the realm of liberty and be free to allow My Spirit to move you from victory to victory.  Truly, many of you have been laboring under unnecessary burdens; let Me take them from you.
Matthew 11:30  “For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
