Many of you, My people, allow extraneous thoughts to clutter your mind and cloud your judgment.  It is important for you to stay focused on what really matters in your life by taking control of your thought process, says the Lord.  You know the difference between right and wrong.  Right thinking causes right doing.
2 Corinthians 10:4-6   “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.”

Prepare yourself for a brand new day.  The slate has been wiped clean, and you can make every day pristine.  I will show you the way, says the Lord.  Stay present with Me by not thinking too far ahead or dwelling on the past, and refuse to allow fear to overshadow your hope and trust in Me.
Revelation 19:6b  “Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!”

Significant changes have taken place that affect you.  Instead of looking back with remorse, set your heart to move forward with a sense of hope and purpose.  There are things that you need to understand and accomplish.  Position yourself for progression, says the Lord.
1 Timothy 4:15  “Meditate on these things; give yourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  12/28/15
The Lord says that the enemy has been bringing a spiritual fog into your spiritual atmospheres.  This has caused you to be unable to see clearly.  It has created doubt around the things that you are making decisions for.  It has caused you to be unclear about that which you are to pray and that which you are to do.  But, the Lord says, “Watch now for I bring My wind.  And, I will remove the fog which has encased you.  I will remove from you the obstruction that has kept you from seeing clearly.  You are now entering into the season of light and the glory of this season shall come with great clarity, great purpose of mind and the greatness of strength of the anointing of My Spirit.  Expect Me to clear the atmosphere that has hindered you so that you may see clearly all things, says the Almighty.

Keep pressing through to complete freedom from bondage.  In order to do that you must first see and understand what is holding you in bondage and then do the work necessary to extricate yourself.  I speak in spiritual terms, but there also may be things you need to do in the natural realm, says the Lord.
Romans 6:16   “Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness?”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  12/25/15
Regroup and prepare to move forward.  Distractions have been endless, but now you must begin to refocus with a sense of purpose and direction.  Be done with everything that has gotten you off track.  The days are treacherous and require you to pay attention so you can hear My voice and obey My leading, says the Lord.
1 Peter 4:17   “For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?”

I am calling you to know true freedom, which is the result of no guile, no control or manipulation, no unreasonable expectations, and no spiritual clutter.  I want you to be unencumbered and free enough to trust Me completely.  This is the beginning of a new era of righteousness and purity, says the Lord.
Psalm 32:22   “Blessed is the man to whom the LORD does not impute iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no deceit.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  12/23/15
Be one with Me in spirit, mind, and action.  In this unity everything will be put in perfect order with a sense of empowerment and purity, and every cell and atom of your being will come into perfect alignment.  That which is destined to destruction will be done away with.  That which is destined to fire will be purified.  That which is destined to peace will be established in peace.  Surrender completely Me, says the Lord.  I reign supreme.
Psalms 146:10   “The LORD shall reign forever-Your God, O Zion, to all generations. Praise the LORD!”

Let go of your insecurities and fear of lack.  If you will do this, I will lead you into a new phase of prosperity that you have not imagined.  This will be beyond the natural realm and will take you into spiritual provision, which will bring peace and delight, says the Lord.
Psalm 50:10-12   “For every beast of the forest is Mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills.  I know all the birds of the mountains, and the wild beasts of the field are Mine.  If I were hungry, I would not tell you; for the world is Mine, and all its fullness.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  12/21/15
Come to Me My beloved, For, this is the season of joy and peace that the world celebrates.  Why can’t My people celebrate it even more so?  Celebrate; celebrate the birth of Christ.  Celebrate the gifts that God has given you, celebrate your life in the Spirit, celebrate those things that you know to be true.  For, hard times are coming.  Perilous times are already here.  Let My joy consume you and take you higher in to the spiritual realm than you are even now.  Enjoy the process, says the Lord.

For those of you who have been absolutely obedient to do all that I have asked of you in recent days and weeks, I AM coming to you to reward you.  I will open the heavens and pour out My glory upon you in ways that you would never have considered, says the Lord.  Watch and be amazed.
Isaiah 40:10   “Behold, the Lord GOD shall come with a strong hand, and His arm shall rule for Him; behold, His reward is with Him, and His work before Him.”

Take an inventory of your mental and spiritual condition.  You are still in the simplify-and-fortify process as change continues to position you for My highest and best.  Make an honest assessment of what is important to you, and adjust your priorities so that you truly seek first My kingdom, says the Lord.
Matthew 6:31-33   “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’  For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.  But seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” 

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  12/17/15:
Things will come to light that will require an adjustment in your thoughts and plans.  Make these adjustments with the grace that I provide.  My grace will keep you in a place of righteousness and safety as the new season unfolds before you.  You will not regret your position of integrity, says the Lord.
Romans 6:16   “Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness?”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  12/16/15:
When chaos threatens to destroy your peace, you must resist and simplify.  Complications provide ground for confusion and double-mindedness.  Strive to maintain clarity in all things and avoid misunderstandings.  Take a position of honesty and be forthright, says the Lord.
Psalms 34:14   “Depart from evil and do good; Seek peace and pursue it.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  12/15/15:
You are about to enter a new phase of existence, but there are things that need to be finished before you can forge ahead.  Make the best use of your time and opportunities to deal with issues that would hinder you in the future, says the Lord.  I will give you discernment, wisdom, and guidance to do all that is necessary.
Isaiah 45:2  “I will go before you and make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the gates of bronze and cut the bars of iron.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  12/14/15:
Changes are still taking place as you get ready to experience the benefits and challenges of the season ahead of you.  Things that you face at this time will prepare you, but you must pay attention to what you can learn from the lessons presented by your circumstances, says the Lord.  Discernment is your friend.
Matthew 11:29 “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.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  12/11/15:
I am transforming you into My image, says the Lord.  You are no longer only a natural being; you are supernatural because My Spirit dwells in you.  Yield to this work of transformation by seeing yourself as spiritually and eternally Mine.  Remember that you are a pilgrim passing through your time on the earth, but you are forever a citizen in My kingdom.  Live like you believe it.
Philippians 3:20-21  “For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  12/10/15:
Many of you, My people, have allowed fear to creep in and overtake you.  You must quiet your fears and come to Me for assurance that I am your protector.  When you do not know what to do, ask, and I will assuredly impart wisdom and guidance.  I will lead you in the way you should go.  Be calm and trust Me to do what I have promised, says the Lord.
2 Timothy 1:7  “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  12/9/15:
In a vision I found myself in a familiar spiritual landscape.  I had been there before.  I saw a  flock of sheep huddled together under an overhanging rock.  Their Shepherd was playing a flute to keep them calm in the midst of a storm, and their hearts were at peace because they trusted Him to keep them safe as He had done so many times in the past.  They did not fear.  And, I heard the Lord say, “Come to Me, and I will keep you in peace and safety.”
John 10:14  “I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  12/8/15:
It is time to prioritize again by putting first things first.  The most important factor in your life is your spiritual condition–your relationship with Me.  Do not neglect, even for a moment, spiritual connection.  When you stay connected everything else will fall into place in divine order, says the Lord, because I will lead you and direct your steps.
Proverbs 3:6   “In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  12/7/15:
I am calling to you to be good stewards of what I have put into your hands–all that I have given you responsibility over.  Righteousness is of the utmost importance as you handle everything with the understanding that it all belongs to Me, says the Lord.  Let integrity be the ruling factor in all of your dealings.
1 Corinthians 4:2   “Moreover it is required in stewards that one be found faithful.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  12/4/15:
Cast down every thought that rises up to bring you into condemnation, and then position yourself under the protection and strength of spiritual truth.  These thoughts against yourself are counterproductive to your spiritual growth and well-being.  If there is truly a need to repent do so, but do not allow yourself to get stuck in things of the past.  What’s done is done, says the Lord.
1 John 3:20   “For if our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  12/3/15:
Put forth every effort to maintain efficacy.  There are forces at work to take you off course.  You must be awake and have a plan that will keep you from spiritual decline.  Stand your ground and refuse to allow the enemy to derail your faith, says the Lord.  Set your will to stay focused.
1 Thessalonians 5:6  “Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  12/2/15:
In a vision I saw a very great multitude of broken people, and I could feel God’s work of repairing and bringing to perfection each individual who asked Him for help.  It was a deep, spiritual work for everyone who made an effort to come into His presence and extend even the smallest amount of faith.  It was a profound and abiding work.  Powerful!
Luke 11:10  “For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  12/1/15:
Surrender yourself completely to Me, says the Lord.  I want to bring you to a new and higher spiritual level where you can begin to see with clear perspective.  From this place your life will be a process of unfolding step by step as I go before you to prepare the way for My purposes to not only be revealed but demonstrated in your life.  Put your trust in Me.
Isaiah 45:2   “I will go before you and make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the gates of bronze and cut the bars of iron.”
