The struggle has been daunting, but you have persevered. You have been tested and found to be tried-and-true. You have learned some valuable lessons and been able to make adjustments that you otherwise would not have made. And, your position has been strengthened, says the LORD. Stand strong in your faith.
Proverbs 17:3 “The refining pot is for silver and the furnace for gold, but the Lord tests the hearts.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 2/27/17:
Believe that you can be restored. Believe in Me, for I will bring you to a place where you can do far better than you imagined. I will help you find the place of believing and receiving. I have undergirded you with the word of truth. Now allow the word of truth to take you on this journey of restoration. Be restored in My presence. Be restored by My word. For, this is the season you find yourself in. This is exactly what I have for you. I say to you, simply believe and allow My Spirit to bring you to a place of restoration so you can be all that you were designed to be, says the LORD.

Discouragement and hopelessness will derail you from being on track with My Spirit, says the LORD. Refuse to allow your emotions to take you down. Bolster yourself in the kind of faith that defeats doubt and unbelief. The enemy would have you question the reality of My Kingdom and the power of My presence. I AM real and My word is true!
1 Samuel 12:24 “Only fear the LORD, and serve Him in truth with all your heart; for consider what great things He has done for you.”

You have come through a very difficult time in many ways, but there were lessons to learn as well as opportunities to overcome adversity. You do not have to be a victim of life’s circumstances. I have called you to be victorious through righteous responses. Simplicity and strength is the result of your efforts to make changes and establish yourself in new positions, says the LORD.
Romans 12:21 “Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”

Exercise your will to discipline your thoughts and emotions. You have the ability to bring yourself under control–even under the control of My Spirit, says the LORD. Only from that position will you find peace and a sense of well-being. Quiet your soul, and let Me lead you out of turmoil and sorrow. I am your help in times of trouble.
Psalms 9:9 “The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 2/22/17:
Many of you, My people, need to extricate yourself from the past and begin again. Start over on a foundation of righteousness and peace. The things that have held you back are things that you must let go of before you can move on. Examine your attachment to that which is not good for you and see if pride is an underlying factor. Humility is necessary to progression, says the LORD.
2 Chronicles 7:14 “if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

Beloved, I AM calling you to step into a place in the Spirit where freedom and joy become a reality in your life. Remember that what you think is of utmost importance because your thoughts will emerge into actuality. You cannot continue to live in fear and have a good outcome. You must walk in the truth of My word by faith, says the LORD, so that you can inherit My promises.
Proverbs 23:7a “For as he [a man] thinks in his heart, so is he.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 2/20/17:
You have heard My word, and it has declared your potential and established the possibilities of that which I am bringing you into. My word will be performed in your life as you believe it and as you exercise your right by way of freewill to have victory over all of the works of the enemy. I declare that you are able to rise up in Spirit and defeat whatever has established itself against you. Remove from yourself every hindrance and be free. Receive healing and be well. Again, I say let every enemy that has established himself against you be rebuked and thus removed, says the LORD.

In a vision I was standing by a river, and there was a foggy mist rising from the water. The LORD said, “You are continuing in the flow of My Spirit, but the path ahead of you is still shrouded in mystery. You cannot see far enough ahead to see where you are going. However, you can trust Me to move you into your perfect destiny. Stay the course.” Proverbs 4:18 “But the path of the just is like the shining sun, that shines ever brighter unto the perfect day.”

You live in precarious times, and it is more important than ever that you live in the Spirit. Be alert and aware of the schemes of the enemy. I AM your refuge and place of safety at all times. Trust Me to expose the danger around you and to keep you from harm, says the LORD.
Psalm 91:9 “Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place, no evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling.”

Get focused and stay focused. Refuse to allow anyone or anything to distract you from the importance of what you have been given to do. Chaos abounds as mental and emotional whirlwinds rage around you. But, you must establish yourself in the peace that surpasses understanding, says the LORD. Be strong and calm.
Hosea 8:7 “They sow the wind, and reap the whirlwind. The stalk has no bud; it shall never produce meal. If it should produce, aliens would swallow it up.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 2/15/17:
Pull in your wandering thoughts by being aware of your mental process. Bring your soul under the authority of Christ in every situation. It is important for you to actually walk and live in the Spirit instead of allowing your flesh to rule. Rise up in the spiritual realm and yield to My leading, says the LORD. I want to keep you in the safety of My presence.
2 Corinthians 10:5 “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.”

You have been in a whirlwind of circumstances, which caused you to rethink your position on several fronts. That flurry is virtually over, and you can now begin to stabilize. My desire is for you to further develop spiritual discernment. This will be a key element in your progression, says the LORD. I will speak to those who have ears to hear.
Mark 4:9 “And He said to them, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear!”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 2/13/17:
The enemy has lied to you. People have spoken against you. But, you need to stir up the Spirit within you. Encourage yourself. And, I remind you that I AM for you and I always will be with you to accomplish everything I have set you to do, says the LORD. Be an overcomer in this earth. Live with the right to rule and reign over your life. Simply believe what I have spoken and let it become the word that projects you into your future.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 2/13/17:
When you are faced with opposition, take the time to examine yourself to understand your own culpability instead of escalating from opposition to division. Your sense of pride and need to be right will cause you to fight for the victim position. But, I want you to be honest with yourself and be established in a righteous position before Me, says the LORD. Romans 12:19 “Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the LORD.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 2/10/17:
Settle down and refuse to allow stress to rule. You must deliberately seek to be at peace in your circumstances and with yourself. This will allow you to be at peace with Me as well, says the LORD. I remind you again that you are not alone. I give wisdom and direction every time you ask, so let go of your tendency to try to be self-sufficient. Be one with Me.
Proverbs 9:10 “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 2/9/17:
Draw near to Me, says the LORD. I AM calling forth a people who will order their steps according to divine wisdom and who will live in righteousness. Examine yourself to see with clarity your attitudes and motivations, especially those that keep you from being one with Me. And, be willing to let go of everything that hinders purity of heart.
Psalm 24:3-5 “Who may ascend into the hill of the LORD? Or who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 2/8/17:
Choose to move forward, and leave that which is redundant behind. There are things in your life that you need to let go of because they are no longer relevant to where you are now. These are circumstances, issues, and associations that no longer fulfill a useful purpose in your life. That which you refuse to leave behind will become an anchor that will hold you back spiritually, says the LORD.
Psalm 119:63 “I am a companion of all who fear You, and of those who keep Your precepts.”

You are still working out the kinks in the process of transitioning out of the old era and entering the new order. Take your challenges in stride while maintaining a sense of stability. I will give you the grace and peace to do all that is necessary. I will show you the way, says the LORD. You are moving from complexity into simplicity.
2 Corinthians 1:12 “For our boasting is this: the testimony of our conscience that we conducted ourselves in the world in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom but by the grace of God, and more abundantly toward you.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 2/6/17:
If God be for you who can be against you? If God is for you, you will indeed prosper, you will have victory, and will receive healing. He will undertake on your behalf and will go before you and lead you into the fullness of that which He has for you. That fullness will include victory and a knowledge of God that you have never had before. Because His love is bestowed upon you, God will arise and carry you into and through this season in a position of absolute victory. You will have victory over hindrances, over infirmity, and over every divisive thing that comes into your life. You will have victory if you will trust and believe.

Keep your heart by deliberately walking in the way of righteousness and peace. You are My representative to those around you, some of whom will only see Me through your attitudes and motivations, says the LORD. Let My Spirit manifest through you.
Proverbs 4:23-26 “Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life. Put away from you a deceitful mouth, and put perverse lips far from you. Let your eyes look straight ahead, and your eyelids look right before you. Ponder the path of your feet, and let all your ways be established.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 2/3/17:
You have faced opposition, and you have opportunities to respond in ways that are not pleasing in My sight, says the LORD. I would have you be righteous in all things and to choose to forgive and treat everyone with love and kindness regardless of injustice. Make choices that will reap a blessing instead of a curse.
Luke 6:35 “But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil.”

I understand that it seems like you have been in a complex maze and that finding your way has been frustrating at times. You are very close to the end of this particularly difficult time, and I want you to be aware that I have been preparing the way before you and leading you along the way. Take the time to look back and acknowledge the miraculous events of that journey, says the LORD.
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.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 2/1/17:
Find the place in your life where you are in sync with the moving of My Spirit, and then you will be led and directed to do all that is in My heart for you. This is true surrender. If you are not yielded fully to My purposes for you, there will be opposition and roadblocks as a sign that you need to make adjustments in your relationship with Me, says the LORD.
Psalm 119:133 “Direct my steps by Your word, and let no iniquity have dominion over me.”
