January 31, 2013: If you are to establish My kingdom in your own life, you must walk in the light–the light of truth, righteousness, justice, and peace. Do not allow the darkness of the kingdoms of the world to overtake you in any way. Stand resolutely in the anointing and glory of My presence, says the Lord. Make the decision to walk in the light of My Spirit in every situation and circumstance.
Matthew 5:14-16 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”

I want you to focus; I need your attention so that you can be an instrument of My will. Quiet your soul so that you are positioned to fulfill My purposes and not strive to fulfill your own desires. Rise up in the realm of the Spirit where you can live in My presence, says the Lord. Do this deliberately. I take great delight in your sanctification and dedication to Me.
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.'”

Beloved, I would have you get to the place of truth, righteousness, and transparency with nothing to hide. This will require you to turn from all sin and iniquity–everything that produces shame and dishonor. I will show you what you need to deal with through conviction of My Spirit, says the Lord. Nothing is hidden from My view; everything is exposed. There is no place you can go where I don’t see you.
Psalm 139:7-12 “Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there; if I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there Your hand shall lead me, and Your right hand shall hold me. If I say, “Surely the darkness shall fall on me,” even the night shall be light about me; indeed, the darkness shall not hide from You, but the night shines as the day; the darkness and the light are both alike to You.”

I am in the process of removing unnecessary burdens from you. I will strip away those things that have been an inordinate requirement of your time or sapped your energy and other resources. The result of this process will be a more complete focus on your purposes in My kingdom, says the Lord. Be willing to let go of everything that has become unproductive.
John 15:2 “Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 1/25/13:
Draw near and stay close to Me, says the Lord. Renew your commitment to Me in your heart, and fulfill your dedication through keeping your intentions pure. Watch diligently and overcome temptations that are designed to take you off course. These are indeed perilous times, but I have chosen you for such a time as this to live in truth and righteousness. You are Mine, called by My name.
1 Peter 2:9-10 “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.”

I speak to those who feel like you have been moving through mud. Let all defilement of flesh and spirit be removed from you, for you are being prepared to move into a time of spiritual purity. If you will allow it, I will send a cleansing flow of My Spirit. You will be purged and washed and made ready for an elevation in righteousness so that you can receive greater revelation of My kingdom, says the Lord. Trust Me and yield.
Psalms 51:7 “Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.”

Stop and discern. Realize that you have stepped into a new spiritual flow. You are leaving behind the chaos and difficulty of the past ten weeks, and you will now have greater freedom and clarity. You will be able to deal more effectively with any trauma you sustained in that period of transition. I am releasing you into an anointing of ease if you will receive it by faith, says the Lord.
John 14:27. “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 1/22/13:
Come now, My children, and stand before Me. Stand as Priests of this age, for I have established you as priests of this day. Therefore, arise to your position. Establish yourself as one who belongs to Me, as one who is under My rule and one who is under My order. When you do so I will speak to you, and I will lead you and guide you . I will commission you to take the responsibility for those things that I give you. And, not only will I give those things to you to deal with, but I will anoint you to assure you that you will have victory over that which I call you to pray, send you to do, and send to demonstrate. Surely, the Kingdom of God will be in demonstration in this season, says the Lord.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 1/22/13:
Beloved, bring your burdens to Me alone in the secret place of My presence. And, there in that place where we commune together, I will answer your prayers and bring you to a place of spiritual strength and courage. Release your faith and know that I have heard you, says the Lord. Otherwise, the bitterness of your soul will become a defilement to those around you.
Hebrews 12:14-15 “Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord: looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 1/21/13:
Tell the people to get themselves untangled in their position of life, says the Lord. Untangle yourselves one tangle at a time with understanding that as you finish the process everything will be in order. Do not leave tangled messes in your life. For, if you do so you will be caught in them and taken captive by them.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 1/21/13:
I am bringing you through a time of testing and adjustments. There are corrections to be made to your path of life, and those corrections will begin to bear fruit as soon as you let go of the things that have been a distraction and a hindrance to your progression. You will now be able to see with greater clarity and understanding, says the Lord, as you walk in the Spirit.
Proverbs 10:17 “He who keeps instruction is in the way of life, but he who refuses correction goes astray.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 18/1/13:
There are still problems in your life that seem to resist a proper solution, but I tell you truthfully that the steps you take in solving your dilemma will give vital understanding with regard to the source of the problem. This understanding will also impart true perspective where you once operated in presumption. In the meantime, you must stand against the temptation to get discouraged or to be defeated. You will be victorious, says the Lord.
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.”

Take time to deal with the things you have put off because of dread. Your life requirements and responsibilities are not going to suddenly go away. The longer you delay the more overwhelmed you will be. If you will face your circumstances squarely and deal honestly with procrastination as an escape mechanism, you will be able to overcome and have victory, says the Lord. And, you will be able to embrace freedom.
Galatians 5:1 “Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 1/16/13:
There is an issue that you must settle in your own mind and heart. There are just some things that you cannot fix or make different. You can only make decisions about the things that are yours to deal with, and that does not include other people and their choices. There is little or nothing you can do about much of what torments your soul. Do your best to choose well, and trust Me with the rest, says the Lord.
Psalms 118:8 “It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 1/15/13:
Please listen carefully and guard in your heart what I will say to you. You are in a time of extreme importance when I will impart wisdom that will establish your path and direction. I speak to many who feel aimless and lost. You must let go of everything that has caused you to falter, and get ready to move on with new perspective. Let Me lead you out of this valley of weeping into a place of great joy, says the Lord.
Psalm 84:5-7 “Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, whose heart is set on pilgrimage. As they pass through the Valley of Baca, they make it a spring; the rain also covers it with pools. They go from strength to strength; each one appears before God in Zion.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 1/14/13:
I challenge you to believe more so than you ever have before. I challenge you to depend upon Me more so than you ever have before. Test Me and see if I will not be the God who provides that which you need. Come now, My children, and believe. Come now and walk with Me. For, the way before you has been prepared. Find your way into My habitation and abide in it, for surely I will meet with you there. It is a place of security, safety, great joy and revelation — a place of knowing Me intimately. I love you and care for you. So, come. Come with faith. Cast aside your unbelief and your doubt and bring yourself fully into this habitation of joy. Enjoy your inheritance and the blessings of the kingdom that will now come, says the Lord.

In a vision I saw people walking up a narrow and rocky path in single file, and I heard the Lord say: The road is long, and the way is narrow. You must pay attention to every step and be careful to not impede your own spiritual progression or the progress of others through careless disobedience or walking in the flesh. You must walk and live in the Spirit. Your safety depends on it.
Matthew 7:13-14 “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 1/11/13:
Beloved, I would have you be aware of issues that may arise that would take you out of the flow of My Spirit by taking on responsibility for things that are not yours to deal with. Stop and think before you act. Not every act that seems good and kind is beneficial to you or to those around you. Ask Me for wisdom and confirmation of what you set your heart and hands to do. I will reveal My perfect will in every situation if you will sincerely seek My heart, says the Lord.
Matthew 7:21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 1/10/13:
Take one step at a time and one day at a time to accomplish what is set before you. I am with you to empower you to meet every challenge and to overcome adversity, says the Lord. This is a time when your hope can become faith, and faith can become fact. This will ultimately be a strengthening time for you, a landmark that you will refer back to as a pivotal point in your spiritual growth. Be strong and resolute.
Psalms 119:116 “Uphold me according to Your word, that I may live; and do not let me be ashamed of my hope.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 1/9/13:
This is a time when the enemy will do what he can to cause you to be overwhelmed by your circumstances, responsibilities, or finances. You would do well to see this time as momentary. This will not last forever, and I will bring you through in victory. Refuse to overreact emotionally, and trust Me to give you the necessary resources and wisdom, says the Lord.
Psalms 61:2 “From the end of the earth I will cry to You, When my heart is overwhelmed; Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 1/8/13:
Come forth My people in this time and in the freshness of this new year. Rise up with expectation that abounds. Rise up with faith that reaches out and calls those things which are not as though they were. For, I have determined to visit you in unexpected ways and to bring the blessings of this season upon you. These blessings shall be new and fresh and such as you have not received before. I am doing a new thing in the land. I am establishing you in the center of My will — that place from which the power of the kingdom flows. And, it shall catch you and hold you and draw you into My purposes in this the season of divine order, says the Lord Almighty.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS –1/8/13:
Beloved, refuse to allow difficulties to outweigh your sense of victory. You must not give in to self-pity or feeling like a victim. Rise up in the strength I have provided to overcome. You will recognize that this is a supernatural work and that I am your God, your Deliverer, and your Healer, says the Lord. Be strong as you set yourself to break through.
Psalms 70:5 “But I am poor and needy; make haste to me, O God! You are my help and my deliverer; O LORD, do not delay.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 1/7/13:
The foundation of My government has been established in the hearts of My people. Now, My house will be built, and My kingdom will be established. Divine order will become the present work of My Spirit in this year. Order must be established in the lives of My people because disorder will govern the world and its systems. Make every effort to establish yourselves in My order. You can do this by staying in touch with Me, and by allowing My Spirit to guide you from day to day. Stay connected!
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 1/7/13:
Let Me deal with those places where you have something to prove. This stems from pride as a way of dealing with insecurity and rejection. But, you are neither insecure nor rejected in My kingdom. Let your trust in Me become as solid as the cornerstone of your foundation. I am your strength in weakness; your help in times of trouble, says the Lord.
Proverbs 18:12 “Before destruction the heart of a man is haughty, And before honor is humility.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 1/4/13:
The way is open for you to come boldly before My throne of grace, says the Lord. Do not be afraid or hesitate. Come and let Me speak to your heart, for you need wisdom and direction for the days ahead. Listen for My still small voice, and you will hear. I will guide your steps, and lead you to victory.
Hebrews 4:16 “Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”

Look for consistent breakthroughs that will begin with small and less significant things. It will be like the breaking of a dam that begins with a trickle and ends with a constant flow. I would have you to move freely in an unrestricted spiritual flow and unhindered by ungodly intrusion. Come into that place by faith where you know that you are walking in liberty, says the Lord.
1 Chronicles 14:11 “So they went up to Baal Perazim, and David defeated them there. Then David said, “God has broken through my enemies by my hand like a breakthrough of water.” Therefore they called the name of that place Baal Perazim.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 1/2/13:
Be on alert for the tendency to make assumptions about people or situations that make you uncomfortable. It’s okay to feel awkward, but you must resist the temptation to carry that feeling into presumption. Your best tactic is to hide and watch it work itself out. Not everything is about you, so don’t take things too personally or take yourself too seriously, says the Lord. Keep looking for spiritual reality in everything.
Psalms 5:3 “My voice You shall hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning I will direct it to You, and I will look up.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 1/1/13:
This is a time when your choices will produce greater consequences than ever. Take the time necessary to make decisions that will produce the best outcome possible, both spiritually and naturally. Make the effort to break free of all entanglements that keep you from positive spiritual progression, says the Lord. Seek Me for strength and liberty from all bondage.
Galatians 5:1 “Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.”
