MALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 2/28/20
Take a break and separate yourself from the things that cause fear or worry. Think about things that bring hope and bolster your faith, says The LORD. In this way you will access strength and better health. Learn to live in the moment as you stay present with Me.
1 John 4:18 “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.”

I call you forth to demonstrate My character and nature in all interactions with others. This will take forethought and self-control, but it is the only way that you can be My representative on the earth, says The LORD. You can accomplish what I have set before you through the Holy Spirit abiding in you and in no other way.
Galatians 5:22-23 “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.”

Many of you are still in a time of fluctuation as you deal with difficult circumstances. And you long for predictable and pleasant days. You cannot do anything about external situations that bring anxiety and discontent, but you can do something about your internal condition. You must find that place of unity with Me where you can rest in tranquility, says The LORD.
Psalm 4:8 “I will both lie down in peace, and sleep; for You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.”

It is My desire that you maintain peace regardless of the turbulence around you. Take one day at a time and focus on things eternal instead of things that are temporary. Be strong and unwavering in your commitment and faith in My Kingdom, says The LORD. I AM with you.
Romans 4:20 “He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 2/24/20
Be strong and brave. Be courageous because The LORD is with you. Fight the good fight of faith. Refuse to live in fear. God will lead you into victory. Trust Him and do not allow fear to control you. Let your faith make you an overcomer!
Revelation 21:7a “He who overcomes shall inherit all things.”

In a dream I kept going back to my childhood home only to find it vacated and desolate, and it troubled me. When I awoke I heard this: “Even though there is no going back, you can build on the foundation of things that made you strong. I am the Rock from which you were hewn. I am your refuge and high tower.”
Psalm 46:1 “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”

Leave your disappointments behind and set your heart and mind on higher things. Begin to recount your blessings and be thankful. Everybody makes mistakes, but you cannot allow negative feelings and regrets to define you. Rather be defined by your relationship with Me and the things I have done for you, says The LORD. Rise above the darkness and live in the light of My love.
Colossians 3:2 “Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.”

Beloved, your life has been characterized by what seems like a low tide. However, the metaphorical tide has changed direction and the water is beginning to rise. You are entering a season of favor and change, says The LORD. Stay flexible and roll with the ever-moving tide of the Spirit. Stay close.
Deuteronomy 8:7 “For The LORD your God is bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, that flow out of valleys and hills.”

Seek Me for wisdom to live in the moment. You cannot live in the past nor speculate with precision about the future. You will either be overcome with regret or live in a fantasy about what is coming. Your optimal position is to do your best to stay present and connected spiritually with Me, says The LORD. Do not worry!
Proverbs 2:10-11 “When wisdom enters your heart, and knowledge is pleasant to your soul, discretion will preserve you; understanding will keep you.”

Many of you are overwhelmed with life’s circumstances, and stress has overtaken you. Do not be afraid. I will lead you to a high place in the spirit where you can see yourself more objectively and make the necessary adjustments to fulfill divine destiny. Be willing to let go of those things that create needless tension, says The LORD.
Psalm 32:8 “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 2/17/20
I am coming to you in this season to help you amplify your faith so that it will work for you. You must use your faith if you want it to get strong. My people should have a strong faith that works for them.
1 Corinthians 16:13 “Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 2/17/20
God showed me a man who left his city, crossed a desert and began to climb a high mountain. I believe that choosing to live in the Spirit will require putting our natural affinities behind and enduring the seeming dryness of separation before finding life in the Spirit. The mountain represents the Kingdom of God. It is a journey that we all must make.
Isaiah 2:2 “Now it shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of The LORD’s house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow to it.”

In this time of transition it is imperative that you maintain integrity. I have given you the ability to stay in truth, righteousness, faith and peace through the Spirit. I have empowered you and given you the grace to rise above and overcome the powers of darkness of this age, says The LORD. It is up to you to choose the high road.
Romans 12:21 “Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”

While in the Spirit, I had the sense of expansion. It was like the atmosphere was expanding to be higher, wider and deeper. And I heard The LORD say that we will experience a time of spiritual growth when we can see more clearly, gain greater wisdom, and go beyond previous limitations. We just have to be available to Him and be willing to embrace all that He has for us.
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.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 2/12/20
I heard the phrase, “Stay in your lane.” I believe that this is an admonishment for us to stay with what we know is right for us. We must keep our focus and not deviate from truth and peace. The LORD wants us to fulfill His purpose by the grace He has given to us through Christ Jesus.
Ephesians 4:4-7 “There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift.”

I AM seeking those with tender hearts and yielded spirits that I can move readily, says The LORD. I want to lead My people to places they have never considered–places beyond the confines of religious tradition. I will take you to spiritual heights that will elevate your spirit and thrill your soul. Will you yield to the moving of My Spirit?
Ephesians 3:17-19 “that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height-to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 2/10/20
Yes, trouble will come, but I will help you, says The LORD. Only believe, and I will bring you through to victory. Do not be afraid. Do not become a victim.
2 Corinthians 2:14 “Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.”

In this time of uncertainty it is important for you to be found in peace. You must not be carried away from your place of safety and security by external conditions. Stand strong and immovable by knowing the power of My strength in you. I am unchanging, the same yesterday, today and forever, says The LORD.
Ephesians 6:10 “Finally, my brethren, be strong in The LORD and in the power of His might.”

I am refining you by testing your heart. Impurities in your character and nature will begin to rise to the top of your consciousness so that you can see clearly the things that need to be dealt with. This refining process will produce purity and sweetness of spirit. Set your heart to yield to this process, says The LORD.
Proverbs 17:3 “The refining pot is for silver and the furnace for gold, but The LORD tests the hearts.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 2/6/20
You are entering a time that may very well be one of the most defining moments of who you are in Me before you move to the next phase of your life. Be obedient to My direction, and stay close to Me. Do not be afraid! Your tendency is to fear the unknown, but your unknown is very well known to Me, says The LORD. Stand strong.
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, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.”

Plant your feet firmly on the foundation of the word of truth and refuse to allow the winds of change to move you from that place of stability. Be strong and unwavering. Stand fast in your relationship and commitment to Me, says The LORD. Spiritual focus is the order of the day. 1 Corinthians 15:58 “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of The LORD, knowing that your labor is not in vain in The LORD.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 2/4/20
There is a shift taking place, and you must be alert and discern the changes required before you can do what is next. Your flexibility will result in stability, so you must be willing to do all that I ask without jumping out ahead of Me, says The LORD. Take it slow and steady.
Proverbs 8:6 “Listen, for I will speak of excellent things, and from the opening of my lips will come right things.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 2/3/20
Satan is very active right now. He is a thief and he is trying to steal My word to you. Don’t let him. Remember that he always comes in the first of the year to establish unbelief. Keep yourselves in a position of faith. Resist him and he will flee from you!
James 4:7 “Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 2/3/20
Take the time you need to rest and catch your breath from the demands on your time and energy. It is important for you to maintain your strength and stamina for the days ahead. You will be challenged in ways that benefit your spiritual growth and understanding of the current season. Stay alert!
Matthew 14:23 “And when He had sent the multitudes away, He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray. Now when evening came, He was alone there.”
