THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 6/30/14:
Lift yourself up beyond the mundane, the carnal.  Lift yourself up from the worry that is scattered over the whole earth.  Lift yourself up into My presence, for I shall reveal things about who you are.  We shall work together to bring you to the place that I have in mind for you and so that you can become an overcomer.  Surely I am for you.  Be who you have been called to be.  Lift your head, square your shoulders and walk with Me.  Today begin a new journey — start over.  Release yourself from the past bondage and move into the light of this day with great expectation of that which I am about to do, and you will not be disappointed, says the Lord.

You are at a point of spiritual discovery.  If you will allow it, I will reveal greater depth and meaning in the truth of My Word.  However, you will need to yield to the moving of My Spirit and not stubbornly hang on to the traditions of men and the works of the flesh.  Open your heart and mind to receive revelation, says the Lord.  I am bringing you higher.
Acts 26:16   ‘”But rise and stand on your feet; for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to make you a minister and a witness both of the things which you have seen and of the things which I will yet reveal to you.”

Pay attention, for I will show you where you have strayed from the path that I have prepared for you.  You will have to make some adjustments in order to re-establish your spiritual and righteous course.  There are things that interrupt the divine flow in your life and cause you to deviate from My purposes.  You will know these things by their fruit.  Let go of everything that steals your peace, says the Lord.
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.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 6/26/14 
Examine the places in your life where you have become overextended.  I speak to you about things that are beyond your control or ability to deal with effectively.  Pull back where you can to avoid the stress that comes with taking on too much.  You would do well to stay within your safe boundaries where you can the achieve the effects that you desire and stay spiritually focused, says the Lord.
Jeremiah 42:10  “If you will still remain in this land, then I will build you and not pull you down, and I will plant you and not pluck you up. For I relent concerning the disaster that I have brought upon you.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 6/25/14
You have asked for wisdom to know how to deal with difficult problems.  But, have you listened?  Have you paid attention to My still, small voice urging you to do what you have not considered?  It is one thing to ask and another thing to receive.  You must silence your frustration and self-criticism and be at peace before you can hear, says the Lord.
Proverbs 2:6-8   “For the LORD gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding; He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk uprightly; He guards” 

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 6/24/14:  
Watch and listen, for I will reveal the areas of life where you have gotten stuck.  And, I will give wisdom and direction with regard to your freedom.  It is time for you to move on with bravery and boldness from the trauma and difficulties you have endured.  As you let go of the past, it will let go of you, says the Lord.
Galatians 5:1  “Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 6/23/14:
You are mine.  You belong to Me.  I will teach you the things you need to know, and I will show you the way.  Will I not bring My kingdom forth and reveal it in your life?  I will show you the things I have for you and the things I want for you.  I will bring those things that have been promised by way of covenant.  Do not forget from this day forward that I am indeed with you and for you, and you will prosper in My kingdom, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 6/23/14:  
Press!   It is not about taking an occasional lunge at walking in the Spirit.  I speak of the constant awareness necessary to live in the Spirit.  This is about keeping your spiritual life active enough to rule over your flesh (carnal nature).  No one is going to do this for you.   This is your responsibility, says the Lord.
Philippians 3:12   Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  — 6/20/14:  
Beloved, I am calling you to come higher.  I speak in terms of seeking Me with a greater sense of purpose in light of eternity.  Establish your perspective to see beyond the natural world.  That which is temporary must not be viewed as permanent.  Your life and time should be invested in the Kingdom to produce long-term and long-lasting benefit, 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.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 6/19/14:
Take advantage of the grace available to you to deal with issues that have caused you to procrastinate.  These are things you have dreaded or at least have not looked forward to.  Now is the time to take care of whatever has been a bother so that it will not become a stumbling block, says the Lord.  You will have My help to take appropriate action.
Isaiah 41:10   Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 6/18/14
Small corrections can make a big difference, and I am showing you things that need to be corrected in order for you to have a better outcome.  Your tendency will be to over-correct, so it is important that you pay attention to that aspect of your life, says the Lord.  See to it that you don’t get down on yourself, but rather recognize that no one is perfect.  You are simply being transformed.
Romans 12:2   And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 6/17/14
In your questions about how to proceed, wait until you have a definitive answer.  Any doubt about your direction or responses to circumstances will produce double-mindedness.  If you need wisdom ask, and then wait for an answer, says the Lord.  For, it is my desire to guide your steps and keep you in a spiritual flow.  Let Me lead.
James 1:5-8  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.  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.


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 6/16/14:
Have you heard My word?  Indeed, it is a season of transformation; of transforming glory.  Transformation is always required when you move into a new season.  The new season is before you; it has been declared; it has been prophesied; it has been spoken of.  Your doorway is opened.  For, I know that you will be able to find Me in a fresh way as the streams of life and reality begin to overflow and touch you.  They will indeed give you the opportunity for the change that is required to come into this new joy of life in this season, says the Lord God.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 6/16/14:  
I heard the phrase, “Steady as she goes.”   And, the Lord says:  Do not deviate from your destination.  I have set your direction, and your spiritual development and the outcome will depend on your staying on course.  Refuse to be drawn away by distractions and interruptions to divine flow, says the Lord.
James 1:13-14   Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone.  But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed.


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 6/13/14
Take care to treat others with the same respect you expect.  Weigh your criticism of others to make sure that what you say is not only valid but helpful.  My kingdom is not about critical judgmentalism, but about exhortation.  I call you to extend love, peace, and kindness, says the Lord.  Be a vessel of goodness.
Luke 6:41-42  “And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not perceive the plank in your own eye?  Or how can you say to your brother, “Brother, let me remove the speck that is in your eye,” when you yourself do not see the plank that is in your own eye? Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck that is in your brother’s eye.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 6/12/14:  
Some things have been put on hold for a short time so that you can get your heart right with Me in this particular.  I am dealing with selfish motivations and places of disregard for others.  When you recognize wrong attitudes and set things in order, you will be able to proceed, says the Lord.  Love is the order of the day.
Romans 13:10   “Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 6/11/14
Be calm and refuse to allow the stress of pressing situations and environments to take its toll.  You don’t have to push yourself beyond normal limits, but you do have to trust Me to for help and wisdom in handling difficulties.  I am with you to empower you by grace and lead you in peace, says the Lord.
Psalm 23:1-2   “The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 6/10/14:  
Have no regrets.  You have had prime opportunities through your experience to learn something about yourself and about the Kingdom.  Be released into a perfect flow with no striving.  Rather, enjoy the ease of being carried along in spiritual flow.  Get yourself to that place of enduring peace.  Let Me have My way, says the Lord.  Surrender!
Isaiah 26:3   “You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 6/9/14:
I would have you, My chosen ones, to not only understand My word by way of revelation, but also to be empowered by My spirit in such a way that you will begin to demonstrate the kingdom. I want you to produce the reality of the kingdom.  Come before My throne with thanksgiving and expectation.  For, I will fill you and baptize you afresh, in the most Holy Spirit as My gift to you.  Receive fully, says the Lord.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 6/9/14:  
Exert the necessary energy to extricate yourself from emotional bondage.  Yes, it’s been tough.  Yes, you’ve experienced situations and circumstances that have been devastating.  But, you can’t stay where you are and be available to all that I have for you in My kingdom.  Release yourself from the past and let Me bring healing to your soul, says the Lord.  Walk with Me.
1 John 3:19-21   “And by this we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before Him.  For if our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things.  Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence toward God.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 6/6/14:
Beloved, you are always transitioning from what was into what is coming. To avoid the confusion that transition brings, you have to stay with what is now. Stay present with Me to see what I am showing you right where you are. Take each moment as it comes and be open to the current spiritual work. Having righteous thoughts, motives, and actions is a full-time job. Do it well, says the Lord.
Psalms 101:7  “He who works deceit shall not dwell within my house; He who tells lies shall not continue in my presence.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 6/5/14:
Let Me take you beyond the mundane into refreshing and exciting aspects of My kingdom, says the Lord.  All you have to do is seek the extraordinary and have faith that I will show you things in the realm of the Spirit that transcend your natural mind and your world view.   But, you must set your desire on the supernatural, and trust Me.
Psalms 27:8   “When You said, “Seek My face,” My heart said to You, “Your face, LORD, I will seek.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 6/4/14:  
Your choices will take on extraordinary meaning and significance at this time, and will have a greater impact on your future than you might think.  Be sensitive and submitted to the leading of My Spirit, and take care to choose wisely and righteously if you want the outcome to be positive.
1 Peter 5:6  “Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 6/3/14:
As a member of My Body, set a watch for inconsistency, for it will become a hindrance whether you are inconsistent or those around you lack stability.  This inharmonious behavior will result in a chaotic environment.  You can’t do anything about the choices that others make.  But, you can choose to display strong and unchanging spiritual values, says the Lord, and refuse to be subject to those who do not.
1 Corinthians 15:58   “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 6/2/14:
Be good; be strong; be faithful.  For,  by the power of My spirit I have entered in to you and caused spiritual life to become active. Acknowledge the fact that I am doing My work in you.  And, the very good work that I have begun in you I will complete.  All you have to do is believe, line up and walk with Me in the way that I will lead you.  I will empower you by My spirit to do the things that I have asked of you.  Will I not bless you according to My word?   For, you are My chosen ones, you are My children in whom I am blessed. Connect yourself to Me.  Acknowledge Me this day.  I am going to go with you from this place into that which is before you.  Oh yes, even into those things that you do not know about yet.  For, I have promised you that the day of surprises are about to come forth.  And, you will be surprised! Your surprise will be filled with enjoyment, laughter and peace.  So, come forth now and walk with Me, says the Lord. 

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 6/2/14
Refuse to allow your thoughts to run wild.  You can do this by deliberately focusing your attention on things that will benefit you and those around you.  You can make great strides spiritually if you will set your mind on spiritual things instead of on worldly things.  This is a matter of discipline, but you can do it, says the Lord.
2 Corinthians 10:4-5   “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.”
