Read MATTHEW 2:1-12 (NEW LIVING)
 

“Yes, yes, you need rest.  I know that you are looking for guidance, wisdom about your life.  Please, come into the house, and rest on the couch.  Let Me start the fire, with wooden logs burning.  Hear the crackle of the fire burning the logs.”

“Sit right there, I am going into the kitchen to get you a drink of hot chocolate.  Sit down, there is no need to rush.  I know how fast time has gone by for you; and how stressed you have felt about life’s events.”

“I want you to see Me go to the bookshelf and pull out a copy of the New Living New Testament and read you the story of the Wise Men.”

“Read the Scriptures; the story of the Wise Men, and how they found Baby Jesus.”

“The star guided them through a long journey many days and far away.  They were guided by the star in the sky and by dreams given to them by the Spirit of God.”

“Be at rest.  I want you to find value in your dreams, and I want you to be guided by My Spirit.  I know how long your journey has been to see the birth of your dreams.”

“You haven’t lost your chance.  I can redeem the time that feels lost to you.  See, in this biblical story, the wise men were on a journey to see the birth of the Messiah King.  They were on a journey to see the birth of Jesus.”

“You are on your own journey to see the birth of those things that I have placed deep inside of your heart.  The Word, and prophecy, led the wise men as well as dreams and circumstances.  I am leading you too.”

“Where am I leading you? How will you get there?  Yes, these are the deeper questions that you are looking for answers for.  It does not start with focusing on these questions but on Jesus.  Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life.  He is the Wisdom of God personified.  When your eyes are focused more on the problems than on the Saviour then you feel lost and confused.”

“You are My child, who I deeply love.  Is it not My heart that the best be given to you? That you can chase after the dreams which I have put into your heart? This is what I deeply want for you.”

“Yes, there are challenges, and yes, there are sometimes practical things you need to do to get to the final destination of where your dream is.  Remember, I am with you, I am leading you.”

“It is time to step forward in your hopes and dreams, to pursue them with all your passion.”

“I guided the wise men with wisdom and was a refuge from fear. I kept them safe from the wrath of King Herod. Will I not keep you safe as you look for ways to resolve your current life circumstances, so that your dreams come true?”

“Look at the story from Joseph and Mary’s perspective.  Joseph and Mary received gifts from Me during a very difficult season in their life, during tax season.  They were being taxed and did not have much to provide for themselves.  I gave them the resources they needed so they could leave to Egypt for a season.”

“I know that it is very easy to reflect on the past and what has or has not happened. It is also very easy to reflect on the future and what has or has not happened.  Your focus is not on the past or the future but on Jesus. Keep your eyes on Jesus.”

“Let Jesus now speak to you about what is in your heart.”

“Ask- how do I get to my dreams? This is the question you are longing to ask.”

Journal Entry: Father, what do You want to say about guiding me in the dreams You have given me?

Counseled by God

by Mark and Patti Virkler | 146 Pages

Have you ever been defeated by negative emotions such as anger, fear, guilt, inferiority, condemnation or depression? Have you tried to fight them off unsuccessfully? Is there an answer that is deeper than simply trying to mentally reason yourself out of these emotions? Is there a way that Jesus can speak a word of life into the depths of your emotional despair and bring healing on a deep level? Is there a form of Christian counseling that begins and ends with the movement of Christ within your heart, rather than simply with the words of man?
