Read LUKE 2:1-7
 

“Think back to Mary and Joey, and day one of the Birth of Jesus. Remember, Joseph was a carpenter, not a warrior. He was an unknown in the world at the time, as was Mary. Neither of these two had the money, resources or the power or authority to change the world.  All they had was this simple baby that had been born, and the responsibility to take care of it and nurture the baby and watch it grow.”

“How much of a heavy, great responsibility that must have been, to carry the weight of knowing, that you are part and responsible for watching the dream of salvation live or die. You know that later Joseph obeyed My voice and heard My voice in a dream so that King Herod could not kill the child Jesus.”

“Joseph and Mary weren’t super rich. They didn’t have money to buy an army. You know that Joseph even after finding out about being the ‘father’ of Jesus did not change his occupation; he didn’t suddenly try and pretend to be a prophet or rabbi; or a king or soldier. He didn’t hide in the caves like David and gather together a group of men around baby Jesus so that they would follow Him.  He remained a father to the vision and dreams that God had given him and Mary.”

“Treasure the dream that I have placed within your heart, child.  Do not abandon it. I know that you have many questions about direction and which way you should go, whether to the left or to the right, or how you are to be providing for yourself and a family. I am here with you; and I love you and have not left you.”

“Now, as you have meditated on the Nativity Story, let Me give you My gifts to you. I will provide for you everything that you need and are looking for.  You will not have to be lacking anything.  What does that mean? That means I want you to know not only meditate on the Nativity Story, but to share with Me your heart and dreams, and so that I might share how I will be a Dad to you and be here to encourage you that your dreams will come to pass.”

“Now is the time to move past just closing your eyes. I want you to see Me with the eyes of your heart, and hear My voice speaking to you about the dreams that I have given birth to; now talk to Me about your dreams and hopes without fear.”

Journal Entry: Father, speak to me to about the dreams that you have put it in my heart?

Was that a “senior moment,” Mark when you referred to Mary and Joseph near the beginning of your entry as “Mary and Joey?”

I’m intrigued with the challenge to meditate on the Nativity story. I have to say that my pondering and reflection in the New Testament has been spotty at times. Your ministry is definitely giving me a renewed interest. I’m praying that God will supply my need to employ your training. I certainly need it! For sure!

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?
