To those who feel stuck either spiritually or naturally, I AM going to make a way for you to take a positive step in extrication. You must settle down and quiet yourself so that you do not miss even the slightest opportunity to make a change. I AM sending a wave of compassion and mercy, and you will know that you are not alone and that I have not forgotten you, says The LORD.
Psalm 86:15 “But You, O Lord, are a God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering and abundant in mercy and truth.”

Wisdom is what you need. You are navigating a fairly narrow channel, but the depth of your challenge requires more understanding than you can access from past experience. You must rely on discernment and insight that can only come from My Spirit, says The LORD. Ask in faith and wait with anticipation to receive what I will reveal to you.
James 1:5-6 “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS: — 7/29/19
Come to Me with your desires, and I will come to you. When you desire to know Me, I will come. When you desire to hear me, I will speak. When you desire to see Me, I will show Myself to you. Come to Me with great expectation so that you may receive. Keep reaching forward!

Steady as she goes. Move forward with strength and endurance without wavering. You can achieve that which I have set before you. I am with you to show you the way, and I have empowered you beyond your natural abilities, says The LORD.
Isaiah 60:1-2 “Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the Lord will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you.”

You can make your plans and set your course, but you must hold them loosely. Be willing to make adjustments as you go. You do not know what the future holds but I do, says The LORD. When you allow Me to give direction and guide you, you can expect the best outcome possible. I AM your hope and future, and I AM with you.
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.”

Be still and stop worrying. I will give you the answers that will solve difficult problems if you will let go of your own construct. You have lots of good ideas, but there is only one sure-fire plan that will produce the desired outcome. Let Me show you the way, says The LORD, and follow My leading. Then, your journey will be successful.
Luke 11:9 “So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.”

What you do at this time will have extraordinary impact long term. Consider your decisions and actions carefully so that the outcome will be beneficial to you and those around you. This is no time to be impulsive or frivolous. You will have the time and space to make a serious plan and follow through. For many this will be a pivotal time of change.
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.”

In a vision I saw a train pulling away from the platform, and The LORD said that moving forward will be similar. It will be slow at first and gain momentum with distance. The same can be said for us spiritually and naturally until it is “full steam ahead”, which is to proceed with as much energy and vitality as possible. I had a sense of excitement in my spirit, knowing that we are being released into a new spiritual season.
Philippians 3:13-14 “Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS: — 7/22/19
Stay connected to Me. If you do, I will guide you through this season. I have much to show you, so come and walk and talk with Me. This can be an exciting time for you. Come and see!

You will find that in many ways you have come full circle. What you have done you are doing again except on a higher level of spiritual understanding and with greater emotional and mental resources. Great benefit will come from remembering the lessons of similar times, says The LORD. Apply what you learned from the past to this season.
Ecclesiastes 1:9 “That which has been is what will be, that which is done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun.”

You have a few more hurdles or difficult circumstances ahead of you, but you are well able to deal with these issues with My help, says The LORD. Depend on Me for wisdom. Ask for direction and clarity, and I will give it. This will be a time when you can learn to lean on Me and move with the flow of My Spirit more completely.
Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in The LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding.”

Many of you, My people, have become victims of your self-imposed identity and are living below your potential. When you live and walk in the Spirit, you can become the best version of yourself possible. I will lead, guide, direct and protect you. You can and will be victorious when you partner with Me, 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.”

If you quiet your soul and discern, you will know that you are on the leading edge of a new wave of spiritual growth and experience. You will have opportunities to accomplish what has seemed to be impossible until now. Be bold and confident that I will broaden your horizons and take you to new heights, says The LORD. Let go of old, restrictive attitudes.
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.”

You have heard it said that it is darkest before the dawn, but I tell you that it is always the darkest when you choose not to access My light and spiritual life. That darkness will envelop and isolate you. You must choose to take the first step that will extricate you from the deep darkness of despair and hopelessness. You will find the light as you move towards Me, says The LORD. Seek Me with your whole heart.
Isaiah 60:2 “For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but The LORD will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 7/15/19
I have provided the wells that produce salvation, so make sure that you are abiding in the waters that I am providing for you. Get in and stay in the living waters.
John 4:10 “Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.””

To many who have lost your joy because you are overwhelmed with darkness and dissatisfaction, I say this to you: It is time to lift yourself to new spiritual heights where you no longer think only about the miseries of life. I want you to find a place of joy in the Spirit. It is not My will that you live in despair without hope. Put your faith and hope in Me, says The LORD.
Romans 14:17 “for the Kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.”

Refuse to allow disappointment to cloud your perspective. Remember that assumption leads to disappointment, which fosters discouragement. Stay on solid ground emotionally, mentally and spiritually by reserving judgment and giving others latitude. Stay righteous by maintaining your own integrity in every circumstance, says The LORD.
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.”

You are not alone, nor are you on your own. You have the Helper, My Spirit, who will interact with you where you are to guide and protect you. You must not be afraid, but go forth with the assurance of supernatural preservation. Stay in the shelter that has been provided for you, says The LORD.
Psalm 91:5-9 “You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you. Only with your eyes shall you look, and see the reward of the wicked. Because you have made The LORD, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place.”

For months now, I have had a vision of a man in a mud bog. He is covered from head to toe in thick, sticky mud as he struggles to get up and out on solid ground. This vision speaks to me of the difficulty of spiritual progression. Each time I see the mud man, he is closer to getting out of the bog. We know that breakthrough is imminent, but not immediate. And today, in the Spirit I heard the words “Patient Resilience.” I believe it means that we continue to tolerate difficulties without complaint as we stay strong and tough in our recovery and progression.
Colossians 1:10-12 “that you may walk worthy of The LORD, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy; giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light.”

Check yourself as to whether or not you have lost ground. You worked hard to get to the place I prepared for you, and you stood strong. But you may have to examine the boundaries that you set and shore up the breaches. Otherwise the gap will widen. It will be easier to deal with now rather than waiting until later, says The LORD. Stand strong!
1 Corinthians 16:13 “Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 7/8/19
I have come to set you free, but you must fight the good fight in faith. That would be in and with Me. I will show you the enemy when he comes against you. When you see him and his works, then you can defeat him.
Ephesians 6:10-12 “Finally, my brethren, be strong in The LORD and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.”

For those who are spiritually sensitive, you know that you have broken through the spiritual environment that has kept you from moving forward. Many of you have felt stuck as though you cannot wake up from a dream. But, now is the time to not only awaken, but to move forward. I will take you on a journey that you would not even have imagined. Prepare for progression, says The LORD.
Romans 13:11 “And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed.”

You, My people, have set a course of spiritual awareness and growth, and with your ultimate destination in mind do not deviate from the path before you. It is easy to get distracted and forget the significance of each phase of your journey. Every step is important; stay righteous and be focused, says The LORD.
Psalm 84:5 “Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, whose heart is set on pilgrimage.”

You are beginning another season of intense internal work that will reach to the very core of your being. If you will yield to the work of My Spirit in you, it will be possible to see and overcome attitudes, thoughts and behaviors that have undermined your spiritual effectiveness, says The LORD.
1 Peter 1:17-21 “And if you call on the Father, who without partiality judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves throughout the time of your stay here in fear; knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot. He indeed was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you who through Him believe in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.”

Every action is the result of thought and choice. Please My heart, says The LORD, by keeping your mind fixed on that which is righteous. Choose to fulfill your purpose through obedience to My word. It is not too late to make better decisions that will result in blessings.
2 Thessalonians 1:11 “Therefore we also pray always for you that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfill all the good pleasure of His goodness and the work of faith with power.”

Disappointment comes when your expectations are not fulfilled. Take every day as it comes without presumption. Your idea of how things should be will not change reality. Save yourself some grief by accepting your current position while trusting that I am with you to lead you through every difficult and dark valley, says The LORD. Do not be afraid.
Psalm 23:4 “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 7/1/19
Have you seen this? My signs are reminders of what is available to My people. This is the time to ask for a greater measure of My Spirit as identified by the abundance of water in the earth. Ask and receive!
Isaiah 44:3 “For I will pour water on him who is thirsty, And floods on the dry ground; I will pour My Spirit on your descendants, And My blessing on your offspring.”

For some of you, My people, new beginnings have been like rolling over in your bed asleep. This is a time when awakening spiritually is a necessity. New beginnings require changes. It is time for you to move into a new realm of effectiveness in the Spirit as you seek Me with your whole heart and mind. Set yourself to achieve new spiritual heights, says The LORD.
Psalm 148:1 “Praise The LORD! Praise The LORD from the heavens; Praise Him in the heights!”
