SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  7/29/16:
This is a time when you should reflect on how you handled your most recent challenge.  Did you get afraid and lose your composure?  Or, did you quietly stand on your foundation of faith and trust Me to bring you through?  How you responded will tell you something about where you are spiritually and could lead the way to victory in the future.  Be honest with yourself, says the Lord.
Colossians 1:21-23   “And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight-if indeed you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and are not moved away from the hope of the gospel which you heard, which was preached to every creature under heaven, of which I, Paul, became a minister.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  7/28/16:
Watch for flesh reactions that open the door to the enemy; he is always looking for an opportunity to establish discouragement, hopelessness, and disability in your life.  Defeat him at the first sign of his work, or he will work to defeat you at every turn.  Remember that I am greater than he is, says the Lord, and when you abide in Me you are also greater.
1 Peter 5:8   “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  7/27/16:
If you will come into My rest and find the peace that I provide, I will be able to show you the things that hinder you.  I will reveal places of bondage that were established long ago that you have not yet released yourself from.  I will show you the way to a level of freedom that you have yet to attain, says the Lord.
James 1:25   “But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  7/26/16:
Refuse to allow the issues of life to overtake and debilitate you.  I have given you the power to overcome every attack of the enemy, even that which has the potential of taking you down.  Be strong.  Move in the direction of breakthrough in every situation, says the Lord.  Know that I am with you to strengthen you.
Romans 12:21   “Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  7/25/16:
Stay in touch with Me so that you know what I am doing and understand the directives that I give you in the journey you are on.  Stay in touch with Me.  Don’t go off by yourself .  If you go off by yourself without Me you are going to wind up off in the weeds of this life.  You are going to make wrong judgments and do wrong things, and whatever you sow you will reap.  So, stay in touch with Me so that I can guide you through these perilous times, through the maze of these few months that are before you.  Stay with Me.  Be one with Me, says the LORD.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  7/25/16:
I see your heart and know your desires for true relationship with Me, says the LORD.  Your faithfulness to Me and My people will be rewarded with My presence.  Refuse to be distracted from spiritual pursuit.  Stay on course and be steadfast.
Psalms 51:10  “Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  7/22/16:
You are in the third wave of the storm that began some time ago.  Just when you think you can move on, you can’t.  The storm is for the purpose of giving you opportunities to deal with issues in your life that prevent spiritual elevation.  Look beyond the raging storm to see what is keeping you from living and walking in the Spirit, says the LORD.
Matthew 7:24-27  “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.  But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand:  and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  7/21/16:
Watch for new opportunities that could bring variety and interest to your life.  However, not every opportunity will be right for you.  You must exercise discernment to know what is right for you and what is not.  Choosing that which is right will enhance your life and give it fuller meaning as opposed to being a burden, says the LORD.  Choose well.
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.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  7/20/16:
I have brought you this far, and I will take you the rest of the way, says the LORD.  Be who you are, and do not try to be something you are not.  Allow My character and nature to be developed in you.  It is more important than ever for you, My people, to exemplify spiritual reality and represent Me in a tangible way.  Be true to yourself and others.
Ephesians 6:24   “Grace be with all those who love our LORD Jesus Christ in sincerity.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  7/19/16:
Be watchful, and don’t let your guard down even when you experience a time of relative peace and quiet.  The enemy will exploit your vulnerabilities when you least expect it.  Stay strong and exercise spiritual discernment in all things, says the LORD.
1 Peter 5:8   “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  7/18/16:
I, the LORD, am the door of this season.  Come to me, and the doors will be opened for you.  Only believe.  My signs have been given to confirm the prophetic words that have been spoken.  Believe and receive the new anointing for victory.  This anointing will activate My word and cause it to become yours.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  7/18/16:
The decisions that you make in the coming days and weeks will have extraordinary influence.  Give careful consideration to your choices at this time and rely on Me, says the LORD, to give you the wisdom necessary to secure your position both spiritually and naturally.
1 Thessalonians 5:6   “Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  7/15/16:
The demands on your time and energy have made you feel scattered, and you would do well to take inventory to define what is really important to you.  You may have to let go of things that are unnecessary and that reduce your level of effectiveness.  Deliberately prioritize your to-do list in order to preserve your peace of mind, says the LORD.
Isaiah 26:3  “You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  7/14/16:
Take the time you need to rejuvenate and gain strength.  The storms have been relentless and difficult.  But, you have been able to find shelter and a place of safety in Me.  Continue to return to your safe haven in times of trouble.  I am your safe habitation, says the LORD.
Psalm 46:1   “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  7/13/16:
Establish yourself in a position of eternal perspective.  Your values and activities should reflect your spiritual commitment.  Never lose sight of who you really are.  Your relationship with Me is the solid foundation on which you build your life and future, and it is the only place of safety in the storms of life, says the LORD.
Matthew 7:24-27  “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.  But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  7/12/16:
I see your heart, and I know that you are feeling a little disoriented and lost.  World conditions and the tragedy of man’s inhumanity to man is disconcerting to say the least, but you must find your place of peace and safety in Me, says the LORD.  Your strength comes from your relationship with Me as you walk in spiritual reality.  Make a difference where you can by extending kindness to others.
Ephesians 4:32   “And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God in Christ forgave you.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  7/11/16:
Many of you, My people, do not have the understanding of the times and seasons in which you live.  Therefore, you must reach out and come to Me.  You must ask for and acquire the wisdom that is available to you at this time, so that you can get on board with what I am doing.  You can be recipients of the good works that I am doing and receive the blessings that I desire to bring to you.  Walk in a position of revelation and knowledge, peace, joy and safety, says the LORD.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  7/11/16:
I make all things possible to those who really believe.  I speak of those whose faith has been activated and there is no doubt, unbelief or fear.  When you are afraid and live in worry, your faith in Me is thwarted, says the LORD.  Remind yourself of My goodness.
Mark 9:23   “Jesus said to him, ‘If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.'”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  7/8/16:
Examine yourself to see where your faith is.  I tell you truthfully that many who think they are in faith are actually in presumption.  Your faith must be solid and real so that you are not merely hoping, but knowing.  There is no doubt or fear in faith.  There is no speculation in faith, says the LORD.
Psalms 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  —  7/7/16:
For those who have been dedicated and obedient to what I have asked, you are very close to moving into new spiritual territory.  It will be a level of understanding the mysteries of My kingdom and the wisdom to proceed with greater power and anointing, says the LORD.  In the meanwhile, stay quiet and be alert.
Psalms 46:10   “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS —  7/6/16:
You may have experienced a setback, but you must not allow isolated incidents to bring spiritual confusion.  Your instinct is to exaggerate the significance of a personal affront instead of just taking it in stride.  The world is not perfect, you are not perfect, and people around you are not perfect.  Give yourself and others a break, says the LORD.  Trust Me to bring you to a place of wholeness.
Psalms 138:8   “The LORD will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy, O LORD, endures forever; do not forsake the works of Your hands.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  7/5/16:
Position yourself to receive and walk in the new anointing that has just been released.  It is available to you, but you must access it by faith.  This anointing is for the purpose of making you more aware spiritually in order to fulfill more completely all that I have given you to accomplish, says the LORD.  This anointing will cause you to be more effective in kingdom work.
Romans 5:1-2  “Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our LORD Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  7/4/16:
Above all activate your position of faith in Me.  For, I AM able to do the things in you that you cannot do, and I am able to lead you in the things you cannot see.  I AM able to speak to you and tell you the things you do not know,  I AM with you and for you.  I will guide you through the maze and trouble of this life into the perfect will I have spoken over you.  And, your destiny will be fulfilled if you will but believe in Me, lean on Me, and come forth in My power, says the LORD.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  7/4/16:
In a vision I saw a door across the room.  It was shut, but there was such a bright light on the other side of the door that the cracks around the door framed it.  It was very inviting.  And, I heard the LORD say, “Open the door to bring light and life.  Do not stay in the darkness of present circumstances.  Allow My light to bring the next revelation and the wisdom that follows into your life in a more powerful way.”
Ephesians 5:13   “But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 7/4/16:
Consider your vulnerabilities–those places in you that can be exploited. You must protect yourself to keep others from taking unrighteous advantage of you. You can do this by hiding yourself in Me, says the LORD. When you live in the Spirit, you will have the necessary discernment to see trouble before it comes.
Ephesians 6:13 “Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”
