Righteousness triumphs over evil. Do what it takes to win every battle and in so doing you will win the war. I have given you the authority to defeat the powers of darkness regardless of how they manifest, but you must exercise your legal right to overcome. Discern your spiritual environment to know when and what to fight, says the Lord.
Luke 10:19 “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”

Set a watch for unauthorized intrusions into your life and circumstances, and stay protected. Beware of schemes and scams at this time. If you will stand on the firm ground of righteousness and truth, you will be able to discern both good and evil, says the Lord. I will show you when evil intentions are present. Your connection to Me is vital.
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.”

Do not despair when things do not seem to be working out for you. Refuse to speak negatively about your circumstances or lose heart, but quietly wait for My leading. I will show you ways in which you can make the course corrections necessary to your victory, says the Lord. Let faith, hope, and love be your strength.
Psalms 27:13 “I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the LORD In the land of the living.”

Quiet your soul and ask for My wisdom and direction before you do something you will regret. Take this time to draw near to Me and be close so that you can stay on course. Refuse to allow your emotions to take the lead, says the Lord. Otherwise, you could find yourself far from what is right and purposeful.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 7/24/15:
Make a decision to be flexible. Changes, both small and great, will require your ability and willingness to accept them so that you can progress. If, at any point in this process, you refuse to incorporate these changes into your life experience you will get stuck spiritually. I am moving you into positions that will result in maximum benefit to you and those around you, says the Lord.
James 3:17 “But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.”

Come softly into My presence, says the Lord. Experience the sweetness of righteousness and purity. This is your place of escape from the hassles of the world and all the filthiness of flesh. Come and rest. Be healed and restored. Let go of all corruption and defilement that seems to be inescapable except for rising up in the Spirit to commune with Me.
Psalms 71:2 “Deliver me in Your righteousness, and cause me to escape; incline Your ear to me, and save me.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 7/22/15:
Push forward to meet the criteria I have set for you. Conquer obstacles and difficulties as they arise, and trust Me to give you the strength and wisdom necessary. Establish a pure heart and keep your eyes on what is truly important so that mundane and practical matters do not take the place of spiritual focus, says the Lord. Keep looking up.
Psalms 20:7 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; but we will remember the name of the LORD our God.

You can begin to celebrate breakthrough in the areas of life where you have been stuck for sometime. It will come like the breaking of a dam–slow at first followed by a final burst. This will bring a sense of relief and a season of divine order and liberty, says the Lord. Flow with the moving of My Spirit.

THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 7/20/15:
I hear the Lord saying, “Absolutely, without hesitation, move into this position of freedom and liberty in the Spirit. For, it will become even more necessary in this the end of the age that you learn to live in the liberty and freedom of My Spirit; that you learn to live in unity with Me. And, that you learn to hear My voice more precisely than you’ve heard it before so that I can lead you and guide you and protect you. In these days that are ahead of you become one with Me and remain in a position of freedom where joy is free flowing in your life.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 7/20/15:
I want you to face yourself directly, and look carefully at things that cause you to be in bondage. It is My desire that you be free from everything that keeps you from perfect liberty. Every day is an opportunity to choose life and freedom as opposed to darkness and oppression. Choose life, says the Lord.
Deuteronomy 30:19 “I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live.”

Stop and reflect on what I have asked of you, says the Lord. Take heart that you have accomplished a lot of what has been given to you to do. But, more is required. Keep pushing through and do not give up. Hear My still, small voice encouraging you, and be aware that I am strengthening you. This is not beyond your ability or resources, for I am your present help in these times.
Psalms 143:10 “Teach me to do Your will, for You are my God; Your Spirit is good. Lead me in the land of uprightness.

Relationship with Me is a very tender thing. It is delicate and needs to be protected. It is easy to lose the sweetness of our love affair by allowing your commitment to Me to become religious works. Take inventory of where you are spiritually, and renew your sense of deep love, says the Lord. Refuse to drift away in your busyness.
2 Thessalonians 3:5 “Now may the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God and into the patience of Christ.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 7/15/15:
I see and know what you have endured at the hands of others, but I want you to give up on any thought of retaliation or retribution. When you take matters into your own hands instead of putting your trust in Me, I cannot bring justice. Your forgiveness and the release of your anger will make a way for My judgment to be carried out, says the Lord.
Romans 12:19 “Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord.”

Find your place of peace even in the midst of turmoil. Be calm and collected regardless of what is going on around you. Rise above the darkness of the earth and live as a citizen of the Kingdom of Heaven, says the Lord. Refuse to be troubled by what you hear. You belong to Me, and I will protect My own.
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 — 7/13/15:
Do the work. Practice My word. Redeem the times that you live in. Have your sins covered by the blood of Christ. Walk in integrity. Walk with the Spirit; He will set you free and He will teach truth. He will bring you into the perfection I have designed for you, says the Lord. For, it is My will that you prosper and live in health. It is My will that you be strong in My Spirit and the power that I provide for you. Come and receive that which I have done on your behalf. Come and participate in these times, these perilous times, with Me, but do so in the power of My Spirit for it is My power to give. It is My power to pour out. It is mine to give unto you this day and I do so gladly. Receive it.

I heard the word divergent. And, the Lord says, “Forces of darkness have begun to scatter you, My people, and cause you to move apart and go in different directions. The enemy’s goal is to distract you from your primary purpose and focus. It is vital that you stay connected to Me at this time and maintain a sense of unity with one another. Be one with Me.

Nothing is hidden from My sight, and all that you need to know will be revealed to you.

There are issues that need to be resolved, and you do not know how to bring them to resolution. But, I say to you that if you will release your offense and trust Me to take care of this, I will. I will lead you in the way of righteousness and bring peace not only to your own heart but to your situation, says the Lord. All you need to do is let go and put your faith in Me.
Mark 11:22 “So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God.””

Keep pushing through difficult circumstances. Breakthrough is assured if you refuse to give up. This is much like the birthing process; the reward is worth the fight. You will press into a new beginning when old things are in the past and put away.

THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 7/6/15:
I say look up, for time is short. The house of God is being perfected in these days, and I am calling you in this season to a higher elevation, which will lead to higher and greater revelation and greater power with demonstration of that which I give you in these very days. Be prepared to move up. Be prepared to be more than you are today. Be prepared to walk in the fullness of the power that I have spoken over you, says the Lord.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 7/6/15:
I speak to the feeling that you have of not knowing where you are and that you are not sure of your next step. That is because changes are taking place that affect your life and your sense of stability. Things will never be the same again, and you must let go of all that keeps you from being free to move on. But, you must also realize that your spiritual equilibrium only comes from your life in Me, says the Lord. Stay connected.
Isaiah 33:6 “Wisdom and knowledge will be the stability of your times, and the strength of salvation; the fear of the LORD is His treasure.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 7/3/15:

Proverbs 17:27 “He who has knowledge spares his words, and a man of understanding is of a calm spirit.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 7/2/15:
Don’t give up when things become difficult. Push through; press through; get through. You can do this, and you are the only one who can do this. Know that I will guide you and give you direction when you feel you have lost your way or your momentum. Changes are taking place, but there is no need to fear. You are moving to higher ground spiritually, and I am with you, says the Lord.
Psalms 32:8 “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.”

This is a time when you can take whatever steps are necessary to leave the past behind in ways that are deliberate and decisive. You must do this before you can step into the next phase of progression. Be done with things that are no longer useful and not relevant to who you are and where you are going. Hold the things of the earth with an open hand, says the Lord.
Colossians 3:2 “Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.”
