Beloved, rest in the assurance that what you are dealing with currently will provide ample opportunities to learn from your mistakes and make the necessary corrections. Know that as you yield to this process it will result in greater strength, wisdom, and victory, says the Lord. Do not be afraid or lose heart. You are not alone; I am with you every step of the way.
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.”

You will find yourself in situations that require extraordinary patience. Take a deep breath and let the process have its way and do its work. Otherwise, you will find yourself out of the flow of My Spirit and in the throes of frustration and stress. However, a change in mindset will help you maintain peace in all things, says the Lord.
James 1:4 “But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.”

Maintain clear perspective, and refuse to allow interim disturbances to dissuade you from strong and abiding faith. Look beyond these short-term difficulties by not giving them more power or significance than they deserve. I tell you truly that this too shall pass, says the Lord. Step back from your focus on trouble to see the larger picture of blessings and victory.
1 Corinthians 15:57 “But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

In a vision I saw a giraffe with its already long neck stretched up to eat the most delicate and scrumptious new growth at the top of a tree. And, like the giraffe, we are stretching way up to devour the fresh word of truth by the Spirit. And, I heard the Lord say: Don’t stop reaching. This is a time of excitement and revelation that will bring new spiritual experience, which will need to be defined and stabilized by My Word, says the Lord.
2 Timothy 2:15 “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 3/25/13:
Follow Me, and I will lead you to the wells of life. I will give the living water to you abundantly. And, I will also feed you with the hidden manna. Not only will I feed you with that which has not been revealed, for it shall indeed become revelation to you, but I shall also walk with you in fellowship. You will know Me even more intimately than you know Me today and understand by way of revelation My purposes for this season. I am about to bring you higher than ever you have been before. Come to Me, walk with Me, be one with Me, and drink the waters that I give to you and eat the manna that I feed you. In the days ahead, you will realize what a great treasure is given to you at this time. Follow Me now. Come on, let’s go on a journey, you and I together; a journey of joy in which you will experience the power of the Kingdom of God; a journey in which your righteousness will be elevated and thus the power of it shall flow out before you; a journey in which you will have victory over all the works of the enemy, says the Lord Almighty.

Pay attention and be aware. I am releasing new insights into your spiritual progression so that you can see more completely how to cooperate with the work that I am doing in your life, says the Lord. This may not be an easy journey, but it will be fruitful if you stay on course. Take every step in faith that I am with you and completing the good work I have begun.
Philippians 1:6 “being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.”

I want you to set yourself to truly love from your heart. When you do this there will be no offense or division. Envy and jealousy will suddenly seem ridiculous. And, to some the idea of loving your enemies seems impossible. But, if your love for Me is perfected, the love for others will be your only recourse, says the Lord. I will help you as you yield to My purposes.
Matthew 5:44 “But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you.”

Come close to Me and yield to My intentions. If you desire to do My will and submit to that desire, you will walk in truth and power. Let your worship and your prayers be the pure and undefiled work of My Spirit, says the Lord. Now is the time to be lifted up in righteousness and true discernment.
Psalms 89:16 “In Your name they rejoice all day long, and in Your righteousness they are exalted.”

The enemy is doing his utmost to cause you to focus on the things that discourage you, but you must refuse that temptation. There are things that you do not yet understand; things that have not yet come to light that will make it easier to stay in the flow of My Spirit, says the Lord. Be patient and stay alert. I will guide you through this maze of confusion.
1 Corinthians 14:33 “For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS 3/18/13:
Rise up now, My people, come and walk with Me. No longer cling to your religious exercise, but I say, come unto Me. Come now with renewed hope. For, faith is the substance of the things that you hope for. Begin again to walk with Me. And, in that I mean you’re not walking trying to find Me, you’re not walking to search Me out. But, you have taken hold of My hand and you are walking with Me into the perfect presence of reality and truth — a present truth that will guide you; truth that cries out from your inner most being. It is truth that puts aside those things that were not in faith and believes. If you will do these things they will serve you well. And, you will find yourself out of the dilemma that your are in and the kingdom of your God will become a reality to you in a more specific way, in a more personal way and in a more present way, says the Lord.

Beloved, I am doing an internal work in you to show you the way of walking in the Spirit. There is a place of certainty already established in you where you can express spiritual reality in power. But, you must do it internally before you can manifest it externally, says the Lord.
Luke 6:45 “A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.”

I speak to those who have yielded to the fear of deprivation. Do not allow your fear to override faith in My provision. Put your trust in Me to bless you and to meet your needs. You belong to Me. Am I not able to do what is necessary to get you through a time of leanness? I AM, says the Lord.
Psalm 24:1-5 “The earth is the LORD’S, and all its fullness, the world and those who dwell therein. For He has founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the waters. Who may ascend into the hill of the LORD? Or who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.”

Pay close attention. Listen and look for My wisdom that will bring solutions to problems, some of which are long-standing. Because you have thought the problem was difficult and complex, you presumed that the solution would also be complicated. But, now you will see that it is really quite simple – -an obvious answer and perfect fit. Receive it with joy, says the Lord.
Psalms 20:6 “Now I know that the LORD saves His anointed; He will answer him from His holy heaven with the saving strength of His right hand.”

If you will allow it, I will take you to a high place where you can see your life objectively, apart from emotional investment, to gain a broader perspective. From this view, you will be able to see My work in your life more clearly and completely. And, you can rejoice in the mercy I have shown you, the favor that has surrounded you, and the grace that has empowered you to accomplish what I have set before you, says the Lord. This outlook will also distance you from the past and release you to move ahead unencumbered.
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 — 3/12/13:
What will your one step of faith be in this new season? It is the first step that leads to victory. You will be given the opportunity to step out in faith in a new way. You are a supernatural people, and your God is saying, “Take one step of faith to begin this new and exciting journey, and with your first step the supernatural will be revealed.”

The restlessness that you are beginning to experience is the moving of My Spirit to wake you up spiritually and bring you to a new level of awareness. It would be a mistake to try to satisfy this sense of boredom externally by trying to satisfy the flesh. Rather, I would have you to pay closer attention to spiritual activity, says the Lord, and discern what I am doing.
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.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 3/11/13:
If you will but step out and walk with me, the realm of My kingdom will open to you in a fresh and new way. For the virtue of My house is hidden to most, but as you walk with Me it will be revealed; your eyes will be opened. For, I am the Lord who comes not only to walk with you but to lead you, to guide you, and to teach you in the ways of My Father. So, come and present yourself to Me. You can do it because you belong to Me and you are My people. Take that step of faith now. As I reveal Myself to you the kingdom will expand within you and the glory will overflow you. And, indeed it shall be as it is written that you will be changed from glory to glory, from encounter to encounter, from touch to touch and from faith to faith, says the Lord Most Holy.

I am doing a work in you to reveal your true motivations in your interactions with other people. I will show you the places where you manipulate people and situations to gain acceptance. And, if you will allow it, I will purify your heart and re-establish innocence, for I will have a people whose only desire is to do My work and please Me, says the Lord.
Psalms 32:2 “Blessed is the man to whom the LORD does not impute iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no deceit.”

Beloved, face every challenge by faith in the strength of My Spirit. My power is enough, but you must believe that it is. Do not allow difficult conditions, negative reports, and out-of-control responses to undermine your faith in what I am able and willing to do on your behalf, says the Lord. Trust Me completely.
Jeremiah 39:18 “For I will surely deliver you, and you shall not fall by the sword; but your life shall be as a prize to you, because you have put your trust in Me,” says the LORD.”

Let truth rule and reign in your heart, and be done with the presumption that comes with projecting yourself into the future. No matter how much you think you know about what is ahead, you only have a glimpse of that which has not yet become reality. And, the truth will be exaggerated and distorted by your imagination. It will benefit you greatly if you can get real and stay real right here and now, says the Lord.
1 Corinthians 13:9 “For we know in part and we prophesy in part.”

I heard in the Spirit the sound of a trumpet blowing. And, the Lord said, “A call is going forth to awaken those who have been asleep spiritually. Only those who have an ear to hear will heed the call, and not everyone will understand the call. It is an awakening to new life and renewal that will bring restoration. Those who hear will begin a journey in the Spirit. It will be hard to let go of the past in some cases, but a desire for more of Me will be strong motivation to move on.”
Exodus 40:36-38 “Whenever the cloud was taken up from above the tabernacle, the children of Israel would go onward in all their journeys. But if the cloud was not taken up, then they did not journey till the day that it was taken up. For the cloud of the LORD was above the tabernacle by day, and fire was over it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys.”

You, My people, are on the verge of breaking through into higher ground. It is as though you have been sleeping, and you are trying to wake up and open your eyes. You are just now being stirred to greater awareness of the spiritual realm and activity. Press through this period of virtual hibernation with the strength of your desire to come higher, says the Lord. The time is now.
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.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 3/4/13:
I am establishing a standard among My people. I am establishing this plumbline so that you might see that as I visit you, the power of the kingdom will come to bear upon your heart and then the manifestation will indeed flow through you. For, this is the time of fulfillment in the day of My power. And, it shall come to pass even as it is written, for My word cannot be broken; the scriptures cannot be changed. They come with timeliness in the right season according to My will. So, I say to you, now it is time for you to arise to your position. It is time for you to become My priests and do the work of a priest. It is time for you to honor Me as it should be in your lives; give Me the glory, give Me the honor. Come to Me with words of praise and thanksgiving and I will indeed meet with you and reveal your purpose, for I am about to carry you into the things that I have designed for this season, says the Lord.

Release yourself from the thoughts, worries, and concerns that keep you earthbound. For, you must rise above all that keeps you from absolute faith in Me, says the Lord. You cannot operate in the realm of faith and be in fear at the same time. Pay attention to your thoughts and make the necessary adjustments to demonstrate faith.
2 Corinthians 10:5 “..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.”

Beloved, refuse to allow discouragement from any source to undermine your faith or keep you from victory. Stand strong in the work of My Spirit in your life, which will cause you to rise above the circumstances that would otherwise shipwreck your faith, says the Lord. I have not appointed you to failure or ruin. You are destined to overcome.
1 John 5:4 “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world-our faith.”
