Hide yourself in the secret place of My presence, says the Lord. You must stay hidden until the onslaught passes by. I will keep you safe as long as you trust Me to protect you. Let the unction of My Spirit and My still, small voice lead you away from danger and harm. I know where you are at all times. You are the apple of My eye, and I will defend you with My power and might.
Psalms 17:8 “Keep me as the apple of Your eye; hide me under the shadow of Your wings.”

What have you overlooked? You cannot continue on the path that I have set before you until you see and understand what you failed to recognize and consider. If you will be still, ask for wisdom, and look carefully, you will see what it is that I am showing you, says the Lord. This is a time when you can bring all factors into consideration and tie up loose ends.
Psalms 119:27 “Make me understand the way of Your precepts; so shall I meditate on Your wondrous works.”

Thoughts of people from your past bring another opportunity to forgive and let go of feelings of rejection, betrayal and abandonment. Do this quickly so that you do not become obsessed with things you can do nothing about. Stay present with Me, says the Lord, and keep your focus on things that matter here and now.
2 Peter 1:10-12 “Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble; for so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. For this reason I will not be negligent to remind you always of these things, though you know and are established in the present truth.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 7/28/14:
Have you seen this? Have you seen that I desire that you receive the anointing that I am providing? Have you reached out by faith to receive that which I have done? This day I give you fresh oil. Fresh oil because the old oil has become stagnant; the old oil is not found in the strength that it once was. So, today I come to pour out upon you the fresh oil of My Spirit so that you can be made ready for the season that you live in and become one of those that I call My own according to My purposes. You can be instantly positioned to be used at any given time to know My way and to walk in My path. Hear My voice and become one with Me, says the Lord.

You are entering a time of exploration and discovery when you can search for Me with all your heart and examine My character and nature in order to know Me on a personal level, says the Lord. I will show you who I am in greater depth of understanding so that you can discover who you are in My kingdom. This discovery will expand your spiritual horizons.
Deuteronomy 4:29 “But 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.”

I heard the Lord say, “Go deep! Refuse to get stuck in what you already know religiously, and look for a deeper spiritual understanding of Who I am and who you are in Me. Move into the realm of spiritual reality where My Word is not just a fable, but is the plan by which you live your life here and now and for eternity. You are in a crucial time where you must choose to grow or you will become dormant.”
2 Peter 3:18 “but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen.”

Rise above the clamor and turmoil in the world around you and see that I have put a fresh hunger in you. This is not a natural hunger but one that can only be satisfied by My word and the revelation that comes from seeking My face, says the Lord. It is as soft as a light breeze and as refreshing as a rain shower, so you will have to be quiet enough to discern this work and yield to it. Come to Me and be renewed.
Isaiah 40:31 But those who wait on the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.

I am shining a light on things in you and around you, which have been cloaked in darkness. These are things that you will need to take into consideration before making any significant changes. You desire wisdom, but this goes beyond what you could have imagined, says the Lord. Be willing and open so that you can receive all that is available to you.
Psalms 51:6 “Behold, you desire truth in the inward parts, and in the hidden part You will make me to know wisdom.”

You can see a path of expansion before you. Don’t obsess about expanding; rather, let Me use My word in and through you to establish a pathway that you will see and follow. Refuse to be in stress or try to control the progression or outcome. Watch and be amazed at how I will direct this great drama that will unfold before you. It will be a production that will be unforgettable. Be My instrument of divine purpose, says the Lord.
Isaiah 54:2-3 “Enlarge the place of your tent, and let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings; do not spare; lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes. For you shall expand to the right and to the left, and your descendants will inherit the nations, and make the desolate cities inhabited.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 7/21/14:
If you can submit yourself to Me in all things, I will be with you in your endeavors. I will go with you until this thing is worked out. I will be one with you and cause those things that you cannot change to come under My order and control so that the outcome will be a benefit to you and not a detriment. Simply believe in that which I am speaking to you. Come into divine order and establish the way of stability by your faith. Watch and be surprised at the outcome of those things that effect you. I will cause them to work for you, says the Lord.

Get in the river. Let the flow of My Spirit carry you into My purposes for you. You can only do this when you trust Me completely, says the Lord, and when you have established a personal and strong relationship with Me. Don’t be afraid of where I might take you because I am for and not against you. You are My dwelling place.
Psalms 46:4 “There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High.”

When you push through into new territory, both spiritual and natural, you will have extraordinary experiences and opportunities along with unexpected challenges. These challenges will either be your impetus for growth or will cause frustration and discouragement. Your response to your circumstances will determine whether you will be victorious or victimized. Be strong and courageous, says the Lord. Let Me lead you to victory.
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.”

It is time for expansion. Break out of the mold, and transcend old limitations so that you can operate outside the box. Be done with the fear that is rooted in false assumptions. Be revitalized. Be courageous and bold. Trust Me to lead you in the ways of refreshment and renewal, says the Lord. You will be delighted with the results.
Psalm 103:2-5 “Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”

In your spiritual progression, you must do first things first. Just take the next step as I direct you. Your steps have to be in order. When you refuse to do that which is in your spiritual flow now, your progress will be hindered or even stopped until you accomplish what I have set before you, says the Lord. Let Me lead you. Let Me direct your steps.
Psalms 37:23 “The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD, and He delights in his way.”

There are new possibilities on the horizon. Take this time to prepare yourself by re-evaluating your priorities. I speak to you in terms of spiritual reality and eternal values, which ultimately must take precedence over all things worldly and temporary. Rise up to new heights where you can truly live in the Spirit, says the Lord.
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 — 7/14/14:
I hear the Lord speaking, and He says, I see you, I hear you and I know you. I know your motives, actions, and your activities. I know when you have the Spirit of wisdom working on your behalf so that you can rise up into a position of victory. Don’t forget that I see you where you are. I know you and the attitudes that you have in those moments. I know your manner of warfare or the lack thereof. I know you from the rising of the sun to the setting of it, and I know you in the night seasons. I have heard you. Please understand that when you believe all that is in My word, as brought to you by the Spirit of enlightenment, you have been equipped to be an overcomer. You are equipped so that you may fight the good fight of faith and win. So what’s left to do? Win! Win the battle! Run the race! Do not give up! Do not sit down! Do not lay down! But, stand up, go forward, and I will go with you.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS – 7/14/14:
Be who you are. Be genuine. There is no need to try to gain the approval of others through pretense. True acceptance comes from Me. A lack of sincerity will derail spiritual discernment and will interfere with your relationship with Me, says the Lord. Be honest in expressing your feelings, thoughts and intentions.
2 Corinthians 1:12 “For our boasting is this: the testimony of our conscience that we conducted ourselves in the world in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom but by the grace of God, and more abundantly toward you.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 7/11/14:
This is a time when you can deal effectively with disappointment, but you must first recognize that it stems from presumption and false hope. I would have you come into spiritual reality through true discernment and not conjecture based on the desires of your soul. You are in a season of maturity where you can leave childish pretending behind and actually fulfill your kingdom position and do the work I have assigned to you, says the Lord. Be in the flow of My Spirit.
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.”

Position yourself in My presence, says the Lord, and I will give you directions for solving difficult problems. But, don’t come with your own solutions or good ideas, for that will block true wisdom. You need to come with the innocence and openness of a child. Come in faith and let Me lead you.
James 3:13-18 “Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom. But if you have bitter envy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth. This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic. For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there. 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.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 7/9/14:
What you say is a direct reflection of your heart, and your speech reveals whether or not you walk in the Spirit or in the flesh. Pay attention to the words of your mouth, and deal with the issues within yourself that cause a negative overflow. I have called you to righteousness, faith, and peace. When you walk in unity with Me, says the Lord, the fruit will be evident.
Psalms 141:3 “Set a guard, O LORD, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 7/8/14:
Be quiet. It is in your best interest to stop worrying and fretting and start putting your trust in Me. For, I will show you the way and be with you on the journey. Be sensitive to My leading, and do not rely on your own thoughts and desires. I know what is best for you, says the Lord. Have faith!
Psalms 5:11-12 “But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You; Let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them; Let those also who love Your name Be joyful in You. For You, O LORD, will bless the righteous; With favor You will surround him as with a shield.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 7/7/14:
I hear the Lord saying that this is an issue of trust. If you trust in Me with all of your heart; if you’ll walk with Me from this day forward I will bring you in to the glorious light of the day that you live in. And, I will reveal the essence of the times and seasons that you dwell in. Will I not lead you on the paths of righteousness; the paths of safety; the paths that take you higher than ever you have been before? Will I not be with you in these last days says the Lord? Not only will I be with you, but I have chosen you to live your life in these times because the glory of My church shall shine ever brighter, and you will be a part of that. I have chosen you because you have determination. You’ve been through some things and you have not given up. You’ve walked with Me in times that were troubling. You had to walk away from people who did not think like you did or believe like you did, and you made your choices for Me over and over again. I will honor those choices and bring you in to the glory of this day, says the Lord God.

Maintain your vital connection with Me, says the Lord, which will stabilize your life in these hectic times. Be strong, focused and unwavering, and it will help you deal with the chaos around you. You will also need to take time to quiet your soul and be still. Refuse to allow yourself to be drawn into things that steal your peace.
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 — 7/4/14:
Re-establish yourself on the solid ground of faith. You cannot acquire spiritual benefits without trusting Me, says the Lord. And, you cannot rely on your efforts in the natural realm to achieve maximum benefits in the Spirit. You have heard it said that desperate times call for desperate measures. Do not think of faith as your last act of desperation, but your first choice in getting help.
James 1:6-8 “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. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 7/3/14:
Stop and take a personal inventory of how you manage your resources. I speak of time, money, energy, and concentration. Productivity in the world is not the same as spiritual productivity. You are set in this world to establish My kingdom in all things. It is My desire for you to become a better steward of all that you have been given and all that you have been given to do. I will direct your steps, says the Lord.
Matthew 6:24 “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 7/2/14:
Examine those things that have not worked for you, and make the necessary adjustments. Make sure that all of the elements in your life are working together for your ultimate good. Refuse to allow things that waste your energy and resources to be a distraction from your spiritual commitment, says the Lord. Live in the Spirit!
Galatians 5:25 “If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 7/1/14:
Beloved, I don’t want you to argue back and forth over things you disagree with. You do not have to prove yourself to be correct or right. Instead, hold your beliefs close to your heart and examine them with My Word as the standard. It is not up to you to convince others to be like you or to align their concepts with yours, says the Lord. Be free and let others enjoy the same freedom of choice.
Romans 14:5 “One person esteems one day above another; another esteems every day alike. Let each be fully convinced in his own mind.”
