SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  9/30/16:
Take a deep breath and clear your mind of all the turmoil that keeps you from living a focused life.  You have allowed too many things to encroach on your walk in the Spirit.  And, you have spent too much of your energy and life force on temporary, worldly issues.  Your circumstances can only change when you change your mind and position yourself in faith and trust in Me, 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  —  9/29/16:
You are like a race horse waiting for the gate to open. You think you are ready to run, but it will only be right when you see the opening. Don’t be impatient. Be still in the core of your being. Rest on faith that My purposes for you are true and set. But, you must not get out ahead of Me. Wait for My direction, and when I lead you out you will have developed a steadfast heart, says the LORD.
Psalms 112:7   “He will not be afraid of evil tidings; his heart is steadfast, trusting in the LORD.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  9/28/16:
In this time of being challenged by difficult situations, you must persist in order to break through into victory.  There are lessons to learn that will benefit you in the days ahead if you will take the time to evaluate honestly where you fell short.  You must jump this hurdle before you can be fully ready to embrace all that I have prepared for you.  Stand strong and resolute in the face of adversity, and trust Me to lead you into your destiny,  says the LORD.
1 Corinthians 16:13   “Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  9/27/16:
Beloved, I want you to remember that condemnation is a work of the flesh in response to the conviction of the Spirit.  Condemnation will paralyze you spiritually and keep you from receiving wisdom and direction.  To avoid this trap, you must walk in the Spirit, receive conviction, take correction, and make a change, says the LORD.  Rise up out of that place of guilt and shame and leave the past behind.
Romans 8:1   “There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  9/26/16:
I hear the LORD saying very, very strongly that you are My people.  Don’t believe the lies that the enemy tells you that you don’t belong to Me and that you have done things that are too hard for Me to forget about; too hard for you to overcome.  That simply is not the case.  So, come forth with great joy.  Come into the land of the living, for in the land of the living all things are possible for you.  Come in with joy and determination to position yourself now.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  9/23/16:
Search your heart and be objective in finding those things in you and in your circumstances that have kept you from being able to move forward to accomplish what I have set before you, says the LORD.  Make the changes necessary to position yourself to be confident, strong, and able. Ask Me to 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  —  9/23/16:
You, My people, are in the process of spiritual refinement. You are being tested and purified so that I may find you fit to carry out My purposes in you and your place on the earth. No one can take your place or do what I have intended for you. You alone can carry out your singular objective as you yield to the work of My Spirit, says the LORD.
Isaiah 48:10   “Behold, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  9/22/16:
Come close to Me, says the LORD, and I will speak to your heart.  I will direct you to where you need to go and what you need to do.  Let Me be your navigator.  I will warn you when you are getting off track and steer you back to the correct course.  But, you must trust Me and allow My intervention into your life.  Quiet your soul, and let Me lead.
Proverbs 3:6   “In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  9/21/16:
You are coming to an intersection in life where you must choose the direction your life will take. The choices will be clear, and you will be able to distinguish between the two. One path will draw you ever closer to Me, says the LORD, and the other path will take you further down the road of worldliness and self-interest. Choose wisely.
Deuteronomy 30:19   “I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  9/20/16:
Take a stand against evil.  You will have opportunities to compromise this stance for the sake of not being rejected by the world.  But, you must make a conscious decision to maintain a position of righteousness regardless of the cost.  The spiritual reward for your dedication and commitment will far outweigh the worldly benefits of compromise, says the LORD.
1 Corinthians 16:13   “Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  9/19/16:
Spiritually understand the times you live in.  Understand that which I AM doing.  Understand what the enemy is doing against you.  And, understand that I have designed you to prevail over all of the works of the enemy.  I have designed you to win the race that you are running.  I have designed you so that you may have faith in Me.  Walk with Me and therefore receive all the blessings that I have spoken on your behalf.  So arise now.  Arise and wake up so that you can see and understand that which is taking place around you. Pay attention to those things so that you can indeed walk in the Spirit and run this race to win.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  9/19/16:
Make your witness and testimony sure.  Your testimony is not credible when you quote My word and yet do not exhibit My character and nature.  Your witness of the gospel message is more powerful when not just spoken but demonstrated.  Do not be a hearer only but a doer of the word, says the LORD,
1 John 1:5-6   “This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  9/16/16:
I heard in my spirit the phrase “patient continuance.”  And, the LORD said, “Stay on course.  Do not deviate from your purpose in My Kingdom.  Distractions will come that would cause you to lose focus and drift, but you must remain steadfast and immovable.  Deliberately choose to be loyal and faithful to Me.”
Romans 2:5-8   “But in accordance with your hardness and your impenitent heart you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God, who “will render to each one according to his deeds”:  eternal life to those who by patient continuance in doing good seek for glory, honor, and immortality; but to those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness-indignation and wrath.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  9/15/16:
Keep your thoughts and emotions under control so that you do not open the door to attacks from the enemy.  Make sure that you are in complete unity with Me and under My protection, says the LORD.  Pay attention to the things you say or do that keep you from being righteous and that prevent you from walking in the Spirit.
Galatians 5:16  “I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  9/14/16:
Watch for opportunities to update things that are outdated or to fix things that are broken.  This is a sign in the natural realm of a necessary process before you can move forward with clarity and purpose in the spirit realm.  Be diligent to wrap up the old season so that there are no loose ends to be dealt with before stepping into the new spiritual year, says the LORD.
Proverbs 13:4   “The soul of a lazy man desires, and has nothing; but the soul of the diligent shall be made rich.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  9/13/16:
Walk with Me as you would walk with a dear and trusted friend.  I will lead you in the way of spiritual experience that will result in greater understanding, faith, and maturity.  You are in charge of this walk.  You can choose your own path.  You can choose not to walk with Me, but you would be missing out on a vital opportunity to know Me, says the LORD.
Psalms 16:11  “You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  9/12/16:
I see you and I know you.  I know the struggles that you are going through.  I know those things that the enemy is bringing against you.  I know the seductions that he will use against you.  So, if you will stay close to Me I will show you through the process of discernment his tactics against you.  I will empower you to resist him so that he will flee from you.  This is My desire, it is My will,  I desire to see you in a position of victory, says the LORD.  Trust Me, obey Me, believe in My ability to help you come through.  Be aware, be aware, I will help you win, says the LORD.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  9/12/16:
Just when you think the changes you have made are sufficient, you will begin to see that your transformation is far from over.  Outward corrections have been a sign of the need for internal work.  You will soon see that the essence of the time ahead of you is spiritual and significant.  Allow this work to lead you into complete unity with Me, says the LORD.  Ephesians 4:13  “till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  9/9/16:
Many of you, My people are vacillating in your position of faith.  Establish yourself in unwavering faith in order to transcend your flesh or carnal nature.  It is through righteousness and by My power that you overcome the works of darkness.  You must walk in the light to get free and stay free, says the LORD.
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.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS   —  9/8/16:
Self pity is your enemy.  Get up out of that place of weakness and infirmity and allow My strength to sustain you.  You have to change your mindset before your body can respond to strength and wholeness, says the LORD.  You are not a victim.  Let victory lead the way into each day.
Nehemiah 8:10b   “Then he said to them, “Do not sorrow, for the joy of the LORD is your strength.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  9/7/16:
You have made some headway even though it seemed to be slow going.  I want you to be aware of the significance of your victories both small and great and take heart.  Be encouraged.  Small steps can also take you the distance if your are diligent to stay the course.  Be strong and refuse to give up, says the LORD.
1 Corinthians 15:57   “But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our LORD Jesus Christ.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  9/6/16:
Do whatever it takes to get ready to move on.  Many of you, My people, are about to be extricated from difficult conditions.  You will have an opportunity to be released from all manner of restraint that has kept you from living in complete freedom.  This is true naturally, but it is especially true supernaturally.  I want you to live the ecstasy of spiritual liberty, says the LORD.
Galatians 5:1   “Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangle-d again with a yoke of bondage.”


THE TRUMPET by BILL BURNS  —  9/5/16:
All you have to do, My people, is believe. Rise up in faith and fight the good fight that you are involved in. And, if you do so you will surely win, for I am  with you in the struggle. I am with you in the war, and I will cause you to be  more than an overcomer as you address the situation and come against the enemy  of your soul who has caused you to compromise, says the LORD.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  9/5/16:
Rise up out the rubble of destruction, disappointment, and discouragement.   What  once was is no more, and you must press on to that which is ahead of you.   Do not bemoan your loss, but as you look to the future know that you can trust  Me to be with you and that I will help you.  Now is a time to regain  spiritual perspective, says the LORD.
Psalms 46:1  “God is our  refuge and strength, a very present help  in trouble.”


SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  9/2/16:
Precision is your friend.  The more precise you can be in your intentions and requests, the better.  You can avoid misunderstandings by being clear and direct in your communications.  I speak not only of the natural realm but the spiritual realm as well.  Be specific in your prayers and be sure that you ask from a position of absolute faith and trust; no doubt or unbelief, says the LORD.
Philippians 4:6   “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.”

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS  —  9/1/16:
In a vision I was on a lazy and smooth stretch of a river.  Yet, I could see just ahead a change to rapids, and I knew I needed to prepare myself by being alert for that which was before me.  And, I heard the LORD say, “You have been in a relatively quiet time spiritually.  Steady yourself and get ready for things to change in rapid succession, and trust Me to bring you through safely.”
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.”
