2020 Vision by Marsha Burns
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 12/31/19
In a vision I saw a tortoise who had retracted his head into his shell. I heard The LORD say, “Like this tortoise, you also need to retreat from the busyness and noise of the world to commune with Me. It is time to regroup and revitalize your spirit, soul and body. Come and receive the strength you need to progress.”
Matthew 6:6 “But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 12/30/19
God wants your faith to increase, and He will help the process by amplification. So, ask for the increase and believe. It is time for an elevation of faith!
Hebrews 11:6 “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.”

Look up into the most holy face of Jesus. His kind and loving heart will be revealed to you when you take the time to truly seek and find Him. He is releasing blessings in ways you have not considered until now. Receive all that He has for you. He is 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.”

You, My People, are highly favored. I AM going to bless you in ways that will surprise you. Let your faith soar as you deliberately seek to come close to Me, says The LORD. You are My own special treasure in whom I take great delight.
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.”

An anointing is being released upon those who seek to rise above the mundane — those who really endeavor to walk and live in the Spirit. My eyes are looking over the face of the whole world to find those whose hearts are set to have a closer relationship with Me, says The LORD. I see you and will bring you forth.
Psalm 84:5 “Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, whose heart is set on pilgrimage.”

When you wonder about Me, seeking to know where I AM. I AM with you, says The LORD. So many of My people send their prayers to somewhere far away when I am right here. I see you and know your heart. When you think there is distance between us, you can waver in faith. Have no doubt that I hear you and will answer your faith.
Acts 17:26-28 “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, as also some of your own poets have said, “For we are also His offspring.””

This is a time when you need to stay strong on the solid foundation of your faith and be calm and assured of your position in Me, says The LORD. You will have multiple opportunities to be distracted from the things that really matter. Find and maintain your position of spiritual reality.
Hebrews 13:5 “Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.””
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 12/23/19
I am coming to you in this season to amplify your faith. You are a people of faith. Only believe. Begin to use your faith so it can grow. Believe that you are Mine and that I want to be with you. If you believe, I will walk and talk with you in this season.

Allow the reality of My presence to penetrate your entire being. Superficial tradition and religious exercise is not enough. I want you to know Me from the very depths of your being so that your relationship with Me is the most important thing in life. I want you to transcend your mundane existence in the earthly world to reach heaven and achieve spiritual life, says The LORD. It is a matter of changing your focus.
Ephesians 1:3 “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.”

Believe in Me and be optimistic that I AM leading you through this valley of shadows. Even when you do not know what is ahead for you, I do. And you can trust Me to set you on a path of destiny so that you will be able to fulfill My desires and purposes for your life, says The LORD. Do not doubt or be afraid.
Psalm 23:4 “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.”

Be strong and do not succumb to the strain of difficult circumstances. Giving in to negative pressure will only make things worse. Set your heart and mind on things above where hope can thrive. Do not forget that I know you and everything about you, says The LORD. Let hope spring eternal.
Colossians 3:2 “Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 12/18/19
Resist the temptation to believe that you are the only one who is struggling. In this season everyone and everything is portrayed as happy, healthy and content. But, that is only a facade. The reality is that life’s difficulties persist, but you can overcome by walking and living in the Spirit. Remember that trouble in this life is temporary, and focus on the promise of eternity with Me, says The LORD.
Job 5:7 “Yet man is born to trouble, As the sparks fly upward.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 12/17/19
You will have opportunities to curb frustration that arises on every level of your experience. Foster and maintain peace, patience, and tolerance. Let righteousness rule in every circumstance. Remember that other people are more important than achieving your own desires and goals, says The LORD.
Luke 21:19 “By your patience possess your souls.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 12/16/19
The path established by God’s way in this season is an elevated way, a higher path into the presence of God. This is the place of security, and it is also a place that we can go to hear the word of The LORD. Come and see. Come and hear, says The LORD. I will lead you and show you things you need to know.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 12/16/19
Carve out a space for yourself where you can be at peace–safe and secure from all that is going on around you. Make a place where we can commune together, says The LORD, where spirit life makes sense. One where you are untouched by evil and the powers of darkness. Set yourself aside to live in the light of truth and righteousness.
Ephesians 6:10 “Finally, my brethren, be strong in The LORD and in the power of His might.”

Beloved apologies cost you nothing but can yield a bountiful spiritual harvest. Remember that you will reap what you sow. Discern good and evil, and align your heart and mind with the truth of My Word. Sow seeds of righteousness, and let My love overflow in you, says The LORD.
James 3:18 “Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.”

The changes that you are experiencing are for the purpose of becoming more perfectly aligned with My heart, says The LORD. You will have opportunities to demonstrate kindness and consideration as well as forgiveness toward those you have previously dismissed. This is a time of purification in which you can drop the facades and be more genuine in expression. Let love abound.
John 13:34 “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 12/11/19
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.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 12/10/19
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.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 12/6/19
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.”
