Refuse to feel sorry for yourself or to lose hope. Rise up in the strength of My purpose for you. Do not underestimate the power of your will to go as hard as you can for as long as you can to accomplish what I have set before you, says the Lord. You are not alone; I am with you to gain the victory.
Luke 17:6 “So the Lord said, “If you have faith as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be pulled up by the roots and be planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you.””

You have had to deal with hindrances, but now you will be able to break through barriers with very little effort. It might take some planning and diligence, however. Be glad and thankful that you are able to put those nagging things behind you, says the Lord, and set yourself to live in peace.
John 8:36 “Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.”

Maintain clarity of thought and purpose, and refuse to allow non-essentials to cloud your vision. Strive to be focused so that you can stay connected to Me and receive wisdom and direction. It is imperative that you stay on track spiritually. Know that there is an over-abundance of things that can and will distract you if you aren’t careful, says the Lord.
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.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 10/27/15:
I saw lights in a vision–one on either side of me and one out ahead of me. I knew they set the boundaries of our journey. I heard the Lord say that if we would stay within the spiritual parameters set for us that our success would be assured. Our decisions will either be according to His will or according to our flesh. Flesh will move us off of His perfect path, but walking in the Spirit will keep us in His heart and in His will.
Psalms 17:8 “Keep me as the apple of Your eye; Hide me under the shadow of Your wings.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 10/26/15:
Come on, My people, go up a little higher. Come up a little higher. Come up to the mountain of the Lord’s house. Come up with joy. Come up knowing that when you come before My throne I give the blessings and the counsel that is required for you to walk in the way that I have established for you. Go forth from this moment in time and receive the blessings that I have put on reserve for you in this season, in this time. Walk in the strength of My power. Fight the good fight and you shall surely receive all that I have for you, says the Lord.

In a vision I saw a bird with ruffled feathers, and the Lord said, “I know the difficulties that you have faced in recent months, and that you have been agitated and annoyed at times. Your feathers have been ruffled, so to speak. But now you must release all sense of aggravation and move on. You cannot walk in the Spirit and hold on to your grievances.” Mark 11:26 “But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses.”

This is an opportune time to break old bad habits and to begin to form new, beneficial ones. Many of the things that you blame on forces of evil are simply bondages of the flesh formed from habitual choices. Allow Me to give you the strength to overcome by making better decisions, says the Lord.
Romans 12:21 “Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”

I have already told you not to despise the days of small beginnings. And, you have been obedient and content with what you have. You have been diligent to do all that I have asked. But, now you will be moving into a season filled with not only small things, but great things. My plans and purposes for you are being fulfilled, says the Lord.
Zechariah 4:9-10a “The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this temple; his hands shall also finish it. Then you will know that the LORD of hosts has sent Me to you. For who has despised the day of small things?”

When you can’t figure out what to do, you need to take a break from the issue and quiet your soul. Ask for wisdom, and I will show you the next thing to do. Then, it is up to you to be obedient and follow My directions, says the Lord. Trust Me to bring you through every difficulty.
1 John 5:14 “Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 10/20/15:
You will begin to look at core matters in your life without being distracted by extraneous concerns. You will be able to focus on what is really important to you. You must get to this place of awareness before you can realize effective spiritual progress, says the Lord. Don’t waste your time worrying about things that have no eternal value.
Psalms 14:2 “The LORD looks down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there are any who understand, who seek God.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 10/19/15:
If you will just watch for a while, just look and see. Let the eyes of your understanding be opened and you will indeed find the path that I have designed for you specifically to walk in this season. And, I will walk it with you so that you can receive all that I have for you. So, when I say stop, you’ll stop. When I say go, you go. When I say this is a blessing just here around the corner, you’ll know it’s there and you’ll have faith to receive it. All these things, the Lord says, I will do for you in these days. For, these are extraordinary days with great bounty and the revealing of the fullness of My kingdom in this earth.

The changes that have come about in your life will have greater than normal impact on your future. Even though some of what you have been through seemed destructive, you have put your future in My hands, and I will lead you in the way of righteousness and peace. Allow Me to be your guide, says the Lord.
Isaiah 58:11 “The LORD will guide you continually, and satisfy your soul in drought, and strengthen your bones; you shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.”

You, My people, are My great experiment. I have given you the ability to choose for yourselves whether or not you will love Me and serve Me. And, your choices will bear fruit one way or another. You can say with your mouth that you will do all that I ask, but the proof will be in whether or not you are actually obedient. Your words can be a lie, but your actions tell the truth, says the Lord.
Matthew 21:28 “But what do you think? A man had two sons, and he came to the first and said, ‘Son, go, work today in my vineyard.’ He answered and said, ‘I will not,’ but afterward he regretted it and went. Then he came to the second and said likewise. And he answered and said, ‘I go, sir,’ but he did not go. Which of the two did the will of his father?” They said to Him, “The first.”

You have been scattered, but I want you to collect yourself. Take stock to see what it is you really need to consider and accomplish. Pull your thoughts in so that you are not obsessing about things you have no control over. Rather, trust Me to cause all things to work together for your benefit, says the Lord. I am doing a great work in these days in the lives of My people.
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 can now deal with unresolved issues as many things will now be brought to a conclusion. You can look back briefly to realize the events that have brought you to this place, but do not dwell there. Be prepared to move on without regret. Allow My plans and purposes to not only be understood but realized at this time, says the Lord.
Proverbs 19:21 “There are many plans in a man’s heart, nevertheless the LORD’S counsel-that will stand.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 10/13/15:
In a vision I saw myself and others with me moving supernaturally with great speed. We had a destination in mind and everything else was moved out of the way. Our focus was on our ultimate goal, and we did not waver. We felt compelled by the Spirit to continue on our course unhindered. The forces of darkness and works of the flesh had no power, and they were as nothing to us in this state of being.
Psalm 18:29 “For by You I can run against a troop, by my God I can leap over a wall. As for God, His way is perfect; The word of the LORD is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.”
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 10/12/15:
I have brought you into this season for your benefit. I will indeed provide the opportunities that are necessary for you to excel, so that you may receive the fullness of that which I desire for you. The decisions you now make will elevate you or cause you to go down the mountain. And that, My children, you do not want to do. Do not allow yourself to backslide in this season. Do not allow yourself to make wrong decisions, but seek Me and seek the counsel of My will in all things. I will lead you in paths of righteousness so that you may have the power that you are going to need–power to overcome the enemy; power to release the hidden blessings; power to find the hidden treasures of darkness. I AM bringing forth the word of power so the circumstances and situations you will face will result in victory and not defeat, says the Lord.

You have been out of your comfort zone for some time. I have asked you to do things that were difficult and even exasperating. But, now you will begin to establish new routines and ways of doing things that will make life much easier in many ways. What you must do now is be sensitive to My Spirit and allow Me to take the lead. Determine to know My will in every situation, says the Lord.
1 John 2:17 And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 10/9/15:
I speak to many when I say that you have become distracted with worldly concerns to the point of falling asleep spiritually. Now is the time to shake yourself awake and get on the path of walking in the Spirit. I want you to live in Me and live your faith, says the Lord. I did not call you to religious exercise, but to a vital and strong relationship with Me. This will require a shift in focus.
John 14:20 “At that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 10/8/15:
Let bygones be bygones. Mourning over the past and thinking about what you could have done, should have done, or might have done is a waste of time and energy. What you did or did not do is a fact of life. What you can do is learn from your experiences, both positive and negative, and move on with greater insight because of what you have been through. That’s life. From this moment forward depend on Me for direction, guidance and wisdom, says the Lord. I will help you.
Psalms 46:1 “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 10/7/15:
Spiritual freedom is the doorway that will lead to the access of benefits in My kingdom, says the Lord. Bondage of any kind will keep you from the fullness of life in the Spirit. I have given you authority to overcome and defeat the flesh, the devil, and worldliness. You must make choices that result in either life or death; liberty or bondage. Scrutinize your decisions.
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.”

Be aware that the forces of evil are swirling around you to create confusion and chaos. I tell you to be still and be calm while you resist with an inner strength that cannot be overcome, says the Lord. Be at peace and find your habitation in Me. Be strong, and let your light dispell the darkness that is encroaching.
1 Peter 2:9-10 “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.
THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS — 10/5/15:
If you will seek Me with all of your heart, knowing the times and the seasons in which you live, you must now hasten towards Me. You must now strive to know Me in ways you have not known Me before. You must come before the throne of grace and receive understanding. To receive the counsel of My will in these days will be the guarantee of promise that you can then go forth into the final steps of your destiny and receive that which I have laid aside for you, to be revealed in these very days. So come, I say, with faith. Come! Rejoice! Come with thanksgiving and receive all that I have for you in this season, says the Lord.

If you are to live in My Spirit and establish yourself in divine order, you must do all that I ask, says the Lord. You, My people, have come a long way, but you must push through until your obedience is fulfilled. Don’t stop short of your goal, but rather push through to complete freedom from all that holds you back.
1 Corinthians 9:24 “Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it.”
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS — 10/2/15:
Reset! It is time to recognize the need to start over. Wipe the slate clean and begin again by getting your priorities in order and doing what is important for this season. Everything in the past has brought you to this point in your life. Take stock of what you want to take with you into the next phase of your existence and what you want to leave behind, and then do it. Be brave and resolute, says the Lord.
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.”

Change has been a major theme in the past few months. Do not underestimate the effect these changes have had on your spirit, soul, and body. They have been significant, and might have left you still reeling. But, know that what you have been through has equipped and prepared you for the days ahead. You will look back at this time and see the value of your separation from that which was no longer valid in your quest for spiritual clarity, and you will cherish the lessons you learned, says the Lord. You will never be the same.
Isaiah 54:14-15 “And one shall say, “Heap it up! Heap it up! Prepare the way, take the stumbling block out of the way of My people.” For thus says the High and Lofty One Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: “I dwell in the high and holy place, with him who has a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.”
