SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  1/31/17:
To those of you who feel as though you have been abandoned or forgotten, I tell you honestly that I have not forgotten you.  I see you and know the problems and heartaches that you have endured.  Do not give up hope, says the Lord.
Jeremiah 29:11   “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  1/30/17:
You have heard what I have spoken.  You should stop and take a breath.  Stop the chaos and be renewed in the Spirit.  Get into a position of walking with Me.  I will always take you forward to the position of favor and victory.  I will be with you to bring you through to victory over everything that the enemy presents against you — victory over infirmity, doubt and unbelief.  I will bring you forth in My kingdom and establish you in the blessings of this season, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  1/30/17:
The gates are open and the way has been made clear.  Go through the gates and survey your opportunities. Look, evaluate, and understand that I AM moving you into a place of freedom from the bondage and restrictions of the past.  Now is the time when you can take your next step in the fulfillment of destiny, says the Lord.
Isaiah 62:10   “Go through, Go through the gates!  Prepare the way for the people; Build up, Build up the highway!  Take out the stones, Lift up a banner for the peoples!”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  1/27/17:
Give yourself a break.  Take the time necessary to relieve yourself from all stress, and rest in My presence, says the LORD.  In My presence in peace and joy instead of the turmoil that comes from worldliness.  Stop and just breathe and relax.  Then, when you need to deal with circumstances, I will take you through with ease. Lean on Me.
Acts 3:19  “Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the LORD.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  1/26/17:
Strengthen yourself in your faith in spiritual reality.  Stop looking only at the natural, physical realm and seek to know and discern what I am doing in Spirit, says the LORD.  Most of the noise around you is designed to draw you away from spirituality into carnality.  You must resist and stop your ears to worldly things that consume your time and attention.  Rise up to find Me and to find peace.
Mark 4:24   “Then He said to them, “Take heed what you hear. With the same measure you use, it will be measured to you; and to you who hear, more will be given.””

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  1/25/17:
Exercise patience and perseverance as you press forward.  Make changes necessary in establishing yourself in a stronger and more defined position spiritually and in your circumstances.  This is still very much a transitional time.  But, breakthrough is imminent, says the LORD.  Stay on My solid foundation.
2 Timothy 2:19   “Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal: “The LORD knows those who are His,” and, “Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  1/24/17:
Stay the course.  Be strong and refuse to deviate from what you know is right and good.  The problems that you face will be resolved in a few days, but you must be calm and do what you can to stay in order.  Put your complete trust in Me to reveal the value of your recent challenges and to unveil your divine purpose, says the LORD.
Psalm 20:4   “May He grant you according to your heart’s desire, and fulfill all your purpose.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  1/23/17:
Who will separate you from the love of God?  The answer is, no one, no thing, no circumstance has the ability to remove you from My love.  I love you.  I care for you.  I AM for you, and I will help you in the process of this journey into and through the new year.  So, believe with all of your heart that I will bring you into the promises I have made.  My desire for you is to be victorious, and to receive the blessings that I have for you in this time, says the LORD.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  1/23/17:
On the journey that I have set before you, you have taken your rest on a spiritual plateau.  It is now time to continue on.  Set your face like flint to move to higher ground and come ever closer to Me, says the LORD.  Travel on without fear or trepidation, for I am truly with you.
Psalm 84:5   “Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, whose heart is set on pilgrimage.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  1/20/17:
Deliberately come into peace as you release yourself from stress.  Step onto the firm foundation of faith in My word, in My kingdom, and in your relationship with Me, says the LORD.  When your foundation is solid everything that you build will reflect that same fundamental power.  Your position in Me will bring you to a position of life and strength. Ephesians 6:10   “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the LORD and in the power of His might.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  1/19/17:
I will bring order where there has been chaos.  You have had to deal with chaotic circumstances and people, but there were things to learn and changes to be made that will ultimately be beneficial to you.  This has been a trying time, but the worst of it is behind you.  Get ready to move forward with a sense of greater stability and expectation, says the LORD.  Keep looking up!
Hebrews 12:2  “Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  1/18/17:
Don’t give up!  You are on the verge, the absolute cusp, of breakthrough.  It has not been easy, but you have done your best to persevere.  Continue to trust Me to show you the way and to take you through.  I am with you every step of the way, says the LORD.  Only believe!
Psalm 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.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  1/17/17:
Do you need help?  Ask Me.  I will give you the wisdom necessary to accomplish whatever has been set before you.  Let me lead you in the right direction.  There is nothing too hard or impossible for Me, says the LORD.  Exercise your faith and trust Me.
Psalm 46:1   “God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  1/16/17:
Get ready, My people, for the flood of My blessings are about to open, and you will be able to see with your own eyes, hear with your own ears, that which I AM doing.  For those of you who are having trouble, rise up into a position of faith to believe that which I have spoken.  You will hear of what I have done across the board in the lives of those who have believed, and you shall be able to know for a fact that you also can get in on whatever I AM doing in this season.  Do not let the moment pass you by.  Walk with Me and I will fulfill My word.  Do what I have asked you to do and everything that I have promised to do on your behalf will take place, says the LORD.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  1/16/17:
You are still in the days of transition, and it is important that you keep your destination in mind. It is easy to lose track of what you have been called to in these times.  Set your heart to know and walk in truth as you maintain your faith in My promises, says the LORD.  Your divine purpose will unfold as you continue to move forward.
Psalm 84:5   “Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, whose heart is set on pilgrimage.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  1/13/17:
I speak to many who have become discouraged and disheartened. You have begun to lose hope, but I tell you that your hope cannot be in human endeavor or worldly expectation. Your hope is only fulfilled through your faith as you strive to maintain eternal perspective. Your heart will be revived in your connection to Me in Spirit, says the LORD.
Psalm 31:24   “Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all you who hope in the LORD.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  1/12/17:
It is imperative that you walk in the light.  As you exercise honesty and integrity, you will be able to see through schemes and treachery.  Be alert and sensitive to unusual intrusions into your life and circumstances.  I will give you the wisdom and ability to deal with whatever comes your way, says the LORD.  Do not be afraid.
Matthew 10:16   “Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves.  Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  1/11/17:
Truth and justice — I would have you embrace the truth of My word and to live by justice so that your life exemplifies righteousness.  Your example will either accuse you or excuse you.  Be blameless.  If you are truly a citizen of My Kingdom, says the LORD, you will exhibit your loyalty by your actions.  Be true to yourself and to Me.
Psalm 19:13   “Keep back Your servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me.  Then I shall be blameless, and I shall be innocent of great transgression.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  1/10/17:
Beloved, you will have opportunities to make adjustments that will simplify and streamline various aspects of your existence.  These opportunities will come unexpectedly in ways that might even seem unrelated and irrelevant, but you will see the value of these challenges as you progress, says the LORD.  Go with the flow and trust Me.
Psalm 118:8   “It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  1/9/17:
I am calling you to a higher place than you’ve ever been.  Are you ready?  Are you ready to connect with Me in the purposes I have set before you in this year?  I want to bless you, My people, abundantly beyond anything imaginable.  I want you to have victory over the things that have hindered you in the past.  I want to bring you forth into the glory of My blessings in this specific time.  So, I AM setting the clock; it is time for you to become what I have called you to be.  It is time for you to know Me as I AM.  It is time for you to learn who I AM in you.  So, walk with Me and you will be blessed in this season.  You have My promise, and it is good for all who hear it and all who embrace it and all who walk it out with Me.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  1/9/17:
Self-control is not only the fruit of My Spirit; it is a virtue.  Position yourself to exercise restraint as you choose to walk in the Spirit, and everything will work out to your benefit.  I will lead you in the ways of righteousness and peace, says the LORD.  Trust Me to undertake on your behalf.
Galatians 5:22-23   “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  1/6/17:
Stay the course, says the LORD.  I will provide you with rare and valuable opportunities to establish your relationship with Me that will surpass your greatest expectations.  You must also watch for the pitfalls along the way that would keep you from your maximum spiritual potential.  Deception abounds in the earth, which if you believe the lies, will keep you from clarity and truth.
James 1:16   “Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  1/5/17:
I have already told you that the rule of the path to discovery is light.  You must walk in the light always in order to discover My plans and purposes for your life.  This path is the only place where you can hear Me or see clearly what I want to show you, says the LORD.  This is a narrow path, which you can stray from easily. You must stay focused and stay on track.
Matthew 7:14   “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  —  1/4/17:
You will have a tendency to feel disoriented and overwhelmed.  Take time to stop and evaluate where you are, and know that I AM with you to help you in all things.  Nothing is too difficult for Me.  Trust Me to bring you through every difficulty, says the LORD.  Just be calm and take one step at a time.
Philippians 4:13  “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  1/3/17:
Set yourself to be strong. My strength is sufficient. Just when you think you cannot do another thing, My presence will bring peace and power. Rely on Me, says the LORD. I will bring you through every challenge regardless of how daunting.
2 Corinthians 12:9   “And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  1/2/17:
Come and connect with Me, so we can go on this journey together.  For, I will lead and guide you.  I will bring prosperity and healing into your life.  Be one with Me.  You can be stronger spiritually this year than you have ever been before.  You can fight the good fight of faith in a renewed way.  You will be able to defeat the enemy as you go in My power and by the faith that I AM energizing within you.  Learn to live in My presence so that great joy and great faith will become that which you will manifest in the season that is before you, says the LORD.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  1/2/17:
Examine yourself and identify the place where you lost confidence.  You must see and know the truth of that incident before you can regain your sense of power and ability to succeed.  Begin to see yourself through spiritual eyes of possibility instead of failure.  I will lift you up to stand on higher ground, says the LORD, if you will believe it.
Mark 5:36b  “Do not be afraid; only believe.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 1/1/17:

“You have come through unprecedented changes in the past few years.  Do not mourn what you perceive as loss, but rather enter into an uncluttered and more honest existence.  I AM preparing you for a reward in the days ahead that you would have lost without making the necessary changes.

It is time to rediscover the truth of My Word and to resolutely walk in the path that I have set before you; the rule of that path is light.  Walk in the light and refuse to walk in any darkness at all.

“But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin,”  1 John 1:7.

“Position yourself in a way that will allow you to receive My perspective and wisdom in every situation and circumstance.  Let Me lead you in the way of righteousness, peace, and joy.

Be sensitive to the conviction that comes when you deviate from the path that I have set you on, and be ready to punish disobedience by being obedient to My leading.  I have a plan and purpose for your life, which will require complete submission to My word.

I AM releasing a new wave of creativity for those who possess a sensitivity to nuance.  Some of you have put away your gifting because you did not deem it to be worthy or worthwhile.  Now is the time to pick it up again and use your creativity as a form of worship instead of a form of personal satisfaction.

Many of you have sown selfless seeds of blessing in the lives of others.  This will be a time when you begin to reap the harvest of those seeds sown.

Old ceilings will become new floors for those of you who have been diligent to do what I have given you to do.  You can now move on up as you establish yourself on the revelation of My purposes for your life, says the LORD.”

  1. Am so glad to see your article about the rich. So true! Many Christians want to justify being rich by saying Abraham was rich. Wasnt he rich because God wanted to show is hard work and faith in Him are rewarded?  Jesus was not rich .
