You have asked for wisdom for very specific things, and if you will be on the alert you will find that I am giving you the answers you need and the clarity you desire. Your part is to not get discouraged or decide that I don’t care, says the Lord. I know everything about you, and I understand your needs. I am with you and for you; it is not in My nature to ignore you. Be still, quiet your soul, and wait in faith. The answers will come.
Matthew 6:8 “…your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him.”

I am bringing everything to a place of very specific and detailed order in your lives if you will allow Me to do so, says the Lord. When I finish, there will be no loose ends as all things come into divine perspective and purpose. Your part is to embrace change and trust Me. It will be like pieces of a puzzle that suddenly fit and cause the greater picture to come into view to be seen and understood.
1 Corinthians 13:11 “When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 7/29/13
The new season is being birthed. And, it is true, for My prophets have spoken it forth. And, now it’s up to you. Will you receive the treasure of it? Will you put yourself in a position of faith and believe for all that I can do; for all that I will do? Only believe, and you shall receive. The work I do in this day will be great and it will be mighty. And, I say unto you that you will hear My voice more clearly than ever you have before. The sound of heaven is about to come and with it the glory of the kingdom. New doors will be opened to you–doors of opportunity to come higher; doors of opportunity to flourish; doors of opportunity to prosper. My doors shall indeed open and no one can close them. So, get ready to come through. Get ready to go forward. Get ready to receive My order in this season, and you will not be disappointed, says the Lord God Almighty.

This is a time of re-gathering. Many things have caused you to be scattered. Your attention has been divided by your interests, your responsibilities, and your ambitions. So, I say, gather yourself to Me and get focused again on that which is of eternal importance. You will have to re-order your priorities and gain fresh perspective before you can align yourself with My will and My order, says the Lord.
Colossians 2:5 “For though I am absent in the flesh, yet I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see your good order and the steadfastness of your faith in Christ.”

Be alert and stay on task spiritually. What I am doing in, around, and through you is not only according to My purposes, but also is for your own personal good and in your best interests. It is time to align yourself completely with My kingdom, says the Lord. Trust Me in all things, and be done with complacency.
Romans 8:28 “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”

You, My beloved, are on the cusp of breaking through into a new season. You have been tested and tried beyond what you would have believed you could endure, and the result has been a radical circumcision of the heart. Your flesh is being cut away so that you can move with inward purity to be one with Me, says the Lord. Those who continue to live in the power of My Spirit will be made strong and will stand fast. Those who can’t go forward will go back to an outward form of religion.
Romans 2:28-29 “For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh; but he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit, not in the letter; whose praise is not from men but from God.”

Come into peace. There are many things that require your attention and capture your emotions, but all of these things serve to bring stress to yourself and your environment. Stop where you are and reconnect with Me spiritually. Align yourself with My strength, wisdom and intentions. Let My presence wash over you like warm oil and rest. I am with you, says the Lord.
Deuteronomy 33:27 “The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms; He will thrust out the enemy from before you, and will say, ‘Destroy!'”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 7/23/13:
Beloved, be very deliberate in your walk with Me, says the Lord. You can’t rush through your religious duty and establish your part of our relationship. The value you place on knowing and loving Me must take priority and requires constant awareness and care. Believe My great love for you. Allow My love to penetrate even the deepest darkness and greatest despair.
Jude 1:21 “Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 7/22/13:
Sin brings darkness to your soul and spirit as well as to your environment. It is never too late to repent and be forgiven. Then, you must rise up out of the darkness into the light of My presence and into new life — life in the Spirit. And, establish peace and light in your environment, says the Lord.
John 8:12 “Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.””

This is a season when you can try new things that will broaden your horizons. However, you need to make sure that you stay in the flow of the Spirit. Otherwise, you could overextend yourself and take on more than you can effectively handle. You will need to evaluate and discern what is appropriate for you and set the necessary boundaries, says the Lord. The decisions you make will either bring greater freedom or create unnecessary bondage. Choose wisely.
Psalms 65:4 “Blessed is the man You choose, and cause to approach You, that he may dwell in Your courts. We shall be satisfied with the goodness of Your house, of Your holy temple.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 7/18/13:
Plant yourself firmly in the strength of My Word, and digest the truth as nourishment to your spirit and not something that your flesh can argue against. Rise up in the power that I have provided and given to you to overcome all the works of the enemy. You, My beloved, are not without help, for I am with you to bring you to perfection. You are My prized possession and an example of holy redemption, says the Lord.
Philippians 1:6 “being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ”.

You are on a path that is unfamiliar and at times seems very precarious, but you must not be afraid. I am leading you and directing your steps. Open your eyes and see how far you have come. Don’t stop here, for you still have a ways to go. The path is narrowing and demands more of you than you thought you could possibly endure. But, with Me all things are possible, says the Lord. Keep pressing on.
Psalms 18:33 “He makes my feet like the feet of deer, and sets me on my high places.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 7/16/13:
I am calling to you from a spiritual high place to come up here! Many of you have lost hope and have become disappointed because you have not received what you desire in the natural, physical realm. But, I say to you that your investment in life must not be in temporary things that will soon pass away, but rather in being one with Me, says the Lord. When your faith is in what you want Me to do for you instead just wanting Me, it is misplaced. Now is the time to have a change of heart.
2 Corinthians 4:18 “while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 7/15/13:
My word is true, powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword. It is able to divide between the soul and the spirit and thereby bring a time of reconciliation. Have I not said to you that I would put a peg in My house? This is for you to come lay hold of certain revival as it comes to you individually — forever changing you and bringing you forth into My image, says the Lord Jesus Christ. For, it shall be from glory to glory that you are touched; from faith to faith that you are changed. As you go, and stay on the path that I have established for you, then I will be with you.
Ezra 9:8 “And now for a little while grace has been shown from the LORD our God, to leave us a remnant to escape, and to give us a peg in His holy place, that our God may enlighten our eyes and give us a measure of revival in our bondage.”

Search your heart and activate the desire to know Me in a personal way. Seek Me in the same way that you would attempt to find valuable treasure. That is, with concentrated effort and single focus. Let nothing interfere with your quest to find Me, says the Lord. Be determined and resolute.
Deuteronomy 4:29 “…from there you will seek the LORD your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul.”

Hindrances are often those things of your own making. You cannot progress until you deal with everything that keeps you from actively seeking My presence. I would have you search yourself to identify that which occupies your thoughts and fuels your actions so that you can deliberately re-order your priorities and remove those things that hinder your spiritual process, says the Lord.
Colossians 3:1 “If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 7/11/13:
Beloved, I have encouraged you to love one another. Yet, there is still so much offense and division among you, My people. You can’t make someone else love you or forgive you, but you can exercise your own will to love others, forgive them, and release them, says the Lord. You are all equal recipients of My mercy and grace. Be kind and love one another.
John 15:12 “This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.”

Be aware of an attack from the enemy to try to establish discouragement that would undermine your effectiveness. The main goal will be to cause you to become disheartened and to give up. But, I tell you truly that you are closer to breakthrough than you know. Refuse this attempt to weaken you, and stand strong in your faith and resolve to overcome, says the Lord. Victory is assured.
James 4:7 “Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.”

Pay attention and watch for valuable insights that will prepare you and facilitate your spiritual development. You are ready to proceed and take the next step in a series of actions and understanding necessary to this vital process of spiritual growth. I have called you, My people, to a closer walk with Me, and that will require that you leave behind the hindrances that keep you from intimacy with Me, says the Lord.
Proverbs 4:12 “When you walk, your steps will not be hindered, and when you run, you will not stumble.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 7/8/13:
Destiny is being formed in you. I have placed in you words of destiny and now I am drawing them back out by My own power and by My own presence. This is a time of acceleration and fulfillment, for these are the days of restoration. These are the days when you will come forth in faith. Watch for opportunities. Awaken when I call you. I am equipping you and you are going to see astounding things. Eye has not seen, and ear has not heard of the glorious things that I am about to do. You, My people, are My temple. Let faith arise in your hearts. Let the word of power be found in your mouth.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 7/8/13:
Even though it might seem to you that you have been taking one step forward and two steps back, you will now enter a season of acceleration where you can see that your progress is actually significant. The struggle has skewed your sense of perspective and the proportion of progress to setbacks. Be assured that I am with you every step of the way to bring you through to complete victory, says the Lord.
1 John 5:4. “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world-our faith.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 7/5/13:
It is important to your well-being for you to stay in the Spirit. You must not evaluate your circumstances, indeed your very life, according to how you feel. Exercise control over your emotions by rising up spiritually where you can be objective. Otherwise, prepare for the roller-coaster ride that will be the result of emotional instability. Abide in Me, says the Lord, and I will be your place of strength and stability.
1 Peter 5:10 “But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 7/4/13:
Keep your spirit clear and maintain peace. These are days when the enemy will bring all manner of temptation and distraction, but you must not deviate from truth, righteousness, and spiritual focus. Set your heart to be in complete unity with Me and My kingdom, says the Lord. I am yours, and you are Mine. Treasure these times when, faced with temptation, you overcome!
Romans 12:21 “Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 7/3/13:
Beloved, don’t despise the process. There are still things I want to bring forth from your life that have not yet matured. Discern and refuse the temptation to be intolerant or impatient. This progression will take time to develop, so settle that factor as part of your pattern of advancement. Don’t be in a hurry; savor the moments that bring revelation and spiritual growth, says the Lord. Your harvest is undeniable.
Mark 4:26-29 “And He said, “The Kingdom of God is as if a man should scatter seed on the ground, and should sleep by night and rise by day, and the seed should sprout and grow, he himself does not know how. For the earth yields crops by itself: first the blade, then the head, after that the full grain in the head. But when the grain ripens, immediately he puts in the sickle, because the harvest has come.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 7/2/13:
I know that you trust Me, says the Lord, because I see your heart and know your love for Me. But now, I am opening a door of hope that will lead to the specific resolution of the issues you have been dealing with for some time. Move in the power of My Spirit and let hope rule in your heart. I am with you to become strength in your weakness. Let the weak say, “I am strong!”
Hosea 2:14-15 “Therefore, behold, I will allure her, will bring her into the wilderness, and speak comfort to her. I will give her her vineyards from there, and the Valley of Achor [trouble] as a door of hope; she shall sing there, as in the days of her youth, as in the day when she came up from the land of Egypt.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 7/1/13:
I tell you, My people, that these days will be known as the days of divine expression, for I am about to express My kingdom through you in a greater way. I am going to bring you forth into a place of resurrection power. In the process of this resurrection I will restore you. It is My desire that you come forth in health and with provision. I say these are the days of divine glory, and I will bring forth a divine manifestation, a divine expression, to those who will simply believe in Me, says the Lord. Position yourself to be one with Me in purpose, one with Me in heart, and then I will express Myself through you. The world will know that I have a people, and they will know that I am the Lord of Glory.

Do not falter at this critical moment, for you are in a time of specific progression to an explicit place in the Spirit. It is important that you refuse to get discouraged in this process and that you resist and overcome the urge to quit. Be strong and take the time to renew your faith in Me to bring you through every challenge in victory, says the Lord. I am the victorious one, and you belong to Me.
Matthew 12:20. “A bruised reed He will not break, and smoking flax He will not quench, till He sends forth justice to victory.”
