A unique path to life in the Spirit has been prepared for each one, and when you have found that path you must stay the course. Changes will be presented from time to time to aid your growth. But no matter what you do or where you are, keep your focus on truth and righteousness. Continue to make your relationship with Me the number one priority, says the LORD.
Psalm 18:36 “You enlarged my path under me, so my feet did not slip.”

You are in a short season of reflection when you will contemplate where you have been and where you are. In this time of introspection be sure that your evaluations are of the Spirit and not flesh. Let Me show you what you need to see. You have come this far by grace and by grace you will proceed, says the LORD.
2 Corinthians 12:9 “And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.””

Set yourself to respond to a great spiritual awakening. You are aware of a new level of anointing, but you have not understood that this awakening is not just a passing experience. It is the hallmark of a new wave that will encompass those whose desire it is to know Me more intimately. Those who live and walk in My Spirit will be elevated, says the LORD.
Isaiah 55:9 “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.”

This is a season in which things are moving quickly. It is vital, therefore, that you stay connected to Me. Allow your faith to center on Me. If you do so, I will cover you in this season, says the LORD.
Psalm 91:1-4 “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him I will trust.” Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.”

I want you to stand on the firm foundation of the truth of My Word, says the Lord. When you choose to stand on memories and past experiences, you are likely to fall through. Always take the time to strengthen your relationship with Me in Spirit because through our relationship your faith will be built up and made strong.
Psalm 31:24 “Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all you who hope in the Lord.”

Beloved, position yourself in righteousness to be under the banner of grace. To do this you must be honest with yourself and make the necessary adjustments so that there is nothing between you and Me. Integrity and incorruptibility are the requirements for this positioning, says the LORD.

Don’t just look; see! Open your eyes to see, know, and understand your place in My kingdom–your purpose and destiny. This means that you have to go beyond interest in your worldly condition, position, and existence to become one with Me, says the Lord. You will be delighted when you can actually see through My eyes.
Matthew 13:13 “Therefore I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand.”

For those who have ears to hear and eyes to see spiritually, I will open to you realms of glory that are beyond your imagination. I will show you things beyond your human understanding. You will transcend far above carnality to know Me more intimately. But, your affection and desire must be for Me and not the world, says the LORD. Come!
Psalms 8:1 “O Lord, our Lord, How excellent is Your name in all the earth, Who have set Your glory above the heavens!”

I am going to reveal your most despicable traits. It will not be to shame you or to cause you to condemn yourself. Rather, it will be for the purpose of correction. You are being transformed into My image and perfected, and there are still things that need your attention, says the LORD.
Hebrews 12:11 “Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 2/11/19
Stand in the truth of who you are in Me, says the LORD. Satan is a liar and he will lie to you either directly or indirectly by finding someone to do it for him. If you receive these accusations about yourself, you will condemn yourself and be without My power.
Romans 8:1 “There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.”

My true disciples are moving with the flow of My Spirit, and everything is in the order of purpose and destiny. Refuse the possibility of getting off track through disappointment and discouragement. Trust that even the conditions that seem bleak or hostile will give you opportunities to grow in ways that you otherwise would not, says the LORD. Stay close to Me.
Matthew 7:14 “Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.”

Life requires patience and perseverance, but many of My people want to do life in giant leaps. There are many lessons to learn and victories that will take one day at a time and one step at a time to win and fulfill your destiny. Be content with the pace I have established because it is the perfect tempo for spiritual growth and blessings, says the LORD.
Philippians 4:11 “Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content.”

This is a time to reset; to begin again with a fresh outlook and renewed hope for the future. Draw close to Me, says the LORD, and receive all that is available to aid in your progression. Be sensitive to My leading as I lift you up and give very specific direction to help you in the next phase of your life.
Psalm 18:30 “As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the LORD is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.”

Beloved, I will show you the way out of troubling circumstances, but you will have to do what is right and not what would satisfy your carnal nature. If you will quiet your soul you will see that the divide between right and wrong is a widening chasm. You must find your place in the Spirit to know the best way to go, says the LORD.
Hebrews 5:14 “But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.”

THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 2/11/19
If you truly want to be connected to Me in this season, you must fight the good fight of faith. The enemy comes to steal My promise from you; don’t let him. Refuse his lies, and establish yourself in My truth.
John 10:10 “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”

Fix your gaze on Me, says the LORD. Everything in the world around you is designed to distract you and pull you down. Your spiritual vitality will come from establishing your relationship with Me first. Then, you can deal with the issues of life with wisdom and the power of the Spirit.
1 Corinthians 6:19 “Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?”

I know of the desire of many of My people to make amends for past transgressions. You cannot undo what has been done. I know the depth of your repentance. Receive My forgiveness, and forgive those who have sinned against you as well. You must not harbor resentment in any form, says the LORD. Be free!
Matthew 6:15 “But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”

Be true to yourself by being true to Me. Put forth the effort to focus on things that really matter. This is no time to be short-sighted. Being self-centered will most certainly cause you to live in the flesh and not in the Spirit. Look to Me for guidance and wisdom as you move to do what is truly meaningful, says the LORD.
Romans 8:7 “Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be.”

Look up! Breakthrough is coming, even at your very door. Many of you have felt stuck and unable to progress. But I tell you truthfully that this advance will be supernatural and beyond your own thoughts and emotions. Relax and allow this move of My Spirit plenty of room to bring you through to complete success, says the LORD.
Psalm 84:5 “Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, whose heart is set on pilgrimage.”

For those who have been under an unusual amount of pressure, you can expect some relief. You can now spend more time with Me, says the LORD. And, I will reveal deep things of the Spirit that you may have overlooked in your busyness. I honor your diligence in seeking My face and desiring My presence. You are precious to Me.
Isaiah 43:4a “Since you were precious in My sight, you have been honored, and I have loved you.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 2/4/19
If you desire to be blessed in this time of abundance, you must do the work. Seek Me until I am found, and I will help you, says the LORD.
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.”

Much of your internal work will have to do with self-control in these days. The world around you seems completely out of control, which is true to some extent. But that should not be the case with you. Set for yourself a code of ethics, a higher standard that aligns completely with My word, says the LORD. This is more crucial than it has ever been.
Luke 6:46 “But why do you call Me ‘LORD, LORD,’ and do not do the things which I say?”

Each one of you carries the responsibility to be an example of righteousness in My kingdom. Only those who live what they believe will be credible in their witness of Me, says the LORD. It is not only your right, but your obligation to represent Me in spirit and in truth, and you can only do that if you live and walk in the Spirit.
Proverbs 13:17 “A wicked messenger falls into trouble, but a faithful ambassador brings health.”
