If you want to have a deeper and more meaningful relationship with Me, you need the anointing of the Holy Spirit to facilitate that desire. But you must deliberately seek to know Me. Your focus cannot be on things of the world or on yourself. Rise above all that keeps you bound in carnality, and soar in the Spirit with Me, says The LORD. You will not regret it.
Colossians 3:1 “If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.”

Release yourself from the past and move beyond all failures and triumphs. Your mission is to fulfill My plans and purposes for you here and now, and that will require your spiritual awareness. Stay present with Me. Do not look too far ahead or brood on things of the past, says The LORD. Position yourself to be obedient to do all that I ask.
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?”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 12/9/19
The LORD says: If you will learn to trust in Me, I will be with you. And, when I AM with you, I will help you. This you must believe! This is the proper position for your faith to be in. Doubt and unbelief do not receive My blessings. Live in and by faith and then you will receive My blessings.
Hebrews 11:1-6 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good testimony. By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible. By faith Abel offered to God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, through which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts; and through it he being dead still speaks. By faith Enoch was taken away so that he did not see death, “and was not found, because God had taken him”; for before he was taken he had this testimony, that he pleased God. But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”

Refuse to allow stagnation to be your destination. You must push through laziness and assume the responsibility that is necessary for your spiritual growth. Continue to ask and seek and knock. Let Me fill you with spiritual truth that will propel you beyond elementary understanding. It is in your best interests to continue to grow, says The LORD.
Luke 11:9 “So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.”

If you are willing to release yourself totally to Me and trust Me, says The LORD, I will bring you to a higher level of service and communication than you could have imagined. It is a place of greater focus and dedication to Kingdom objectives, which will require selflessness on your part. You can be one of the chosen.
2 Thessalonians 2:13-14 “But we are bound to give thanks to God always for you, brethren beloved by The LORD, because God from the beginning chose you for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth, to which He called you by our gospel, for the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

When situations arise that require a deviation from your routine, be flexible. Be willing to change your mind and your plans to be more fluid. I AM still with you, leading and guiding your steps. Trust Me and accommodate My plans and purposes for you, says The LORD. Do not be afraid.
Isaiah 42:16 “I will bring the blind by a way they did not know; I will lead them in paths they have not known. I will make darkness light before them, and crooked places straight. These things I will do for them, and not forsake them.”

Many of you have been bombarded by confusion, a weapon from the enemy. I want you to be aware of this attack and stand against it by actively resisting. And, seek Me for clarity and wisdom, says The LORD. When I AM at work in your life and circumstances everything will be clear and easily understood. I AM not a God of uncertainty.
James 4:7 “Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.”

I AM calling you to a higher level of spiritual accountability. When you get lazy or slack in your work ethic it will effect others more than you know. Make a decision to rise up to exhibit excellence and be the best version of yourself you can be, says The LORD. I have given you the ability to do all that I have called you to do, and I will help you.
Psalm 16:3 “As for the saints who are on the earth, “They are the excellent ones, in whom is all my delight.””
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 12/2/19
Word from 1.14.19: This will be a glorious time for My people if they guard their hearts with all diligence. Establish a watch over your lives and fight the good fight. This is a year in which multiple blessings are available, so position yourselves to receive them. Extraordinary times are before you, so do not lose heart. Renew your faith and begin again!

Carefully consider what you do in this season in order to reflect My values and presence in your life. Those who might never read My word or know Me personally need to see Me in you, says The LORD. You might be the only Bible they read. You are My representative on the earth.
2 Corinthians 3:2-3 “You are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read by all men; clearly you are an epistle of Christ, ministered by us, written not with ink but by the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of flesh, that is, of the heart.”
