In a vision I saw someone driving a truck loaded with trash and garbage, and I heard the Lord say: So many are carrying around worries and thoughts that have no value, which amount to trash and garbage that are not useful to anyone. It is time for you to unload that stuff and load yourself up with good things — uplifting thoughts and the truth of My Word.
Ephesians 4:17-18 “This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind, having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart.”

When you choose the flow of My Spirit and to walk according to divine order, I will direct your steps in perfect timing. Then, you can relax and allow Me to lead, says the Lord. Do not be anxious about anything, but rather know that I have already established the outcome. Come walk with Me, let Me take 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.”

When you put yourself in My care, and I mean truly depend on Me to care for you, I will protect and cover you. I will speak to you in that protected place and give you wisdom and direction. But there must be no rebellion in your heart or sense of independence that would keep you from doing My will. You are not your own when you wholeheartedly give yourself to Me, says The LORD.
1 Corinthians 6:19 “Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?”

Let My voice be heard. Listen, look and pay attention. I AM speaking to you and showing you the way if you will only quiet your flesh and rise up in the Spirit to receive. I AM not far from you. I AM closer than your breath. Recognize and acknowledge My presence, says The LORD. Silence is the path to revelation.
Zechariah 2:13 “Be silent, all flesh, before the Lord, for He is aroused from His holy habitation!”

If you will learn to live by faith you will be an overcomer! Don’t give in to the devil and his lies. I AM for you and will be with you. Only believe!
Revelation 3:19-21 “As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.”

I know you whether or not you are aware of that fact. Many of you, My people, have an unspoken belief that you have access to Me without My knowledge. You act as though you have to grovel to be heard. But I am aware of those who enter My presence and seek My face. I know and understand you. You are not hidden from My sight, says The LORD.
John 10:14 “I AM the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own.”

For those who have been struggling to survive, I would have you set your mind and will on the road to recovery. You must trust Me like never before and refuse to allow setbacks to override the progress you have made. My presence and healing virtue are powerful and real, says the Lord. Only believe!

Stand strong and unwavering regardless of the difficulties you face. You are more resilient than you realize. This is not a time to cave in and become a victim of circumstances. Strengthen your resolve to not only survive but to thrive. You can do this because I am with you. I am your strength and song, says The LORD.
Exodus 15:2 “The LORD is my strength and song, and He has become my salvation; He is my God, and I will praise Him; My father’s God, and I will exalt Him.”

Push through the barriers that keep you from being the best version of yourself that is possible. Life’s struggles will cause you to grow and will teach you things that mold you into My image, says The LORD. You are being transformed day by day. Keep striving.
2 Corinthians 3:18 “But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of The LORD, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of The LORD.”

You will soon be singing a song of rejoicing because you will see the results of the work I have been doing in your life. When you are going through difficult times, it is hard to see the benefit of your trials. But when the proverbial fog clears, you will see clearly and will understand that what you have endured has strengthened your spiritual and moral fiber, says The LORD. Walk strong!
Job 8:21 “He will yet fill your mouth with laughing, and your lips with rejoicing.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 5/20/19
The season before you will be filled with joy if you walk with Me. I will lead you into the fullness of My purposes if you stay connected. Come with Me and I will protect you. Come with Me and I will speak to you. Come with Me and the journey of this season will be revealed.

It is My desire that every bondage in your life be broken so that you are free to be all that you can be in Me, says The LORD. If you will allow it, I will break every fetter and set you free. But you must yield to that spiritual work and let go of ungodly obsessions and everything that causes you to be disobedient. Be faithful.
John 8:36 “Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.”

In a vision I saw someone who had gotten stuck trying to cross a mud bog. And, I heard The LORD say, “Many of you, My people, have gotten stuck in difficult circumstances, which have overwhelmed you. But I have made a way and have given you the strength to overcome. Take every opportunity to leave the past behind and believe My promises to help you.”
Isaiah 50:7 “For The LORD God will help me; therefore I will not be disgraced; therefore I have set my face like a flint, and I know that I will not be ashamed.”

Pay attention to what you see and know spiritually. You are at the very threshold of breakthrough. Bolster yourself in fresh hope and vision for your future, says The LORD.

Release your burdens and energize your faith to know that I can do what you cannot. But you must let Me have those things that worry you without taking them back to stew over.

1 Peter 5:6-7 “Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.”

For those of you whose resources have been stretched and over extended, you need to set yourself to conserve and recuperate.

You will have significant opportunities to get overwhelmed with unexpected situations. In the face of that possibility you must maintain the awareness that you can ask Me for guidance even in the midst of chaos, and I will direct your steps and give you the wisdom you need. Ask, and I will answer, says The LORD. I AM with you.

In a vision I saw a mime, and I heard The LORD say, “I want you to demonstrate truth and spiritual reality. To do this you may have to keep your mouth shut and show through your actions what others need to see in order to understand. There are too many mouths and not enough demonstrators. Let Me do My word through you.”
James 2:18 “But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.””

There are things that still need your attention in order to be brought into order. My Kingdom is one of divine order which will be reflected in the lives of My people, says The LORD. Yield to the working of My Spirit to bring you into perfect position and alignment for maximum spiritual benefit.
Psalm 138:8 “The LORD will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy, O Lord, endures forever; do not forsake the works of Your hands.”

Do your best to stay focused spiritually. Refuse to allow the day-to-day issues and activities to cloud your perspective and interfere with your ability to stay in touch with Me, says The LORD. Maintain eternal perspective knowing that life on earth is temporary.
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.”

Knowing the nature of the problems you face is a necessary first step in finding solutions. Set yourself to understand your obstacles and opposition. Discernment is vital to the success of any endeavor, says The LORD. Stay connected to Me, ask for wisdom, and allow Me to lead you on to victory.

It may seem as though you are taking one step forward and two steps backward. However, the truth of the matter is that there are some difficult lessons to learn and internal work that must be understood at this time. These are things that can no longer be overlooked. What you learn at this time will define you in the days ahead, says The LORD, and will set you up for victory.
Matthew 12:20 “A bruised reed He will not break, and smoking flax He will not quench, till He sends forth justice to victory.”

Be sensitive in responding to the leading of My Spirit. There is internal work to be done with regard to your motivations and attitudes. I will show you precisely where adjustment is needed and even required before you can operate in divine power, says The LORD. Carnal responses will interfere with your spiritual strength.
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.”

As you press on you will face aspects of life that are formidable, but you must go forth knowing that I am your help in trouble. I will give you the strength and wisdom to overcome even the most intimidating of circumstances. Do not be afraid. Only believe.
Psalm 46:1 “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”

I call you, My people, to be kind to one another. The world is filled with selfishness and hatred. But you belong to Me and not to the world. When you become one with Me, your attitudes will reflect My heart and not yours. And the fruit of My Spirit will be evident in all that you are and all that you do, says The LORD.
Galatians 5:22-23 “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.”
