Read Matthew 1 (REVISED STANDARD VERSION)
 

“Yes, I know it has been a long day for you. Much has happened since we last talked. Step back into the love that is with Me. Fix your eyes on the love that is with Me.  Fix your eyes on a vision of the Father. Oh, My eyes are tender to your wounds, worries and fears.  I’m here to speak with you; and to bring you comfort.  Walk through the gates of Christmas Mountain. Do not be afraid to bring to Me all your fears and concerns, and worries.”

“See the snow packed deeply on the ground. You’re wearing boots even in the vision; to walk through the snow. Feel the weather, not cold, not warm, no breeze just the air and magic of the winter season.”

“Heavy you feel, with all your prayer and concerns, as you come directly to My secret place, the place where it has been hard for you to reach; because of the overwhelming feelings of your concerns.  Knock on the doors; the light is on, I am home.  Walk into the house.  The heat is on, the fireplace to your left burning and crackling. You’ve had a long day, a long month, even, and your joy and hope has been drained from you.”

“Sit in the big comfy seat with Me. Let Me speak to you through My Word once again.”

“Remember the story of Joseph. He had wonderful dreams of love and marriage.  He had hopes and dreams of who he was going to be with. For him, all that came crashing down when he found out Mary was pregnant. He was faced with impossible news to believe and He chose to seek out My wisdom.”

“For Joseph, an angel spoke to him in a dream and gave him an interpretation of Scripture.  So, it was through the combination of prophetic interpretation of Scripture, encountering an angel in the dream, and vision that Joseph was given instruction that led to healing in his heart; hope restored, and vision for his life granted, and he saw the larger plan of the Father.”

“What areas of your life do you need to hear Me? I will speak to you in the secret and quiet place.  I will fine-tune the dial that is My voice speaking to you. Do you hear what I hear? Do you hear My voice calling out to you?  I want to encourage your heart. I want to restore the bleeding that is in your heart.  It is not just with words and thoughts, but a spiritual encounter where your heart is healed.”

“Oh My Child, I am here. Please, tell me your broken hopes and dreams and desires. Give them over to Me. Know this, Joseph’s dream of love and marriage was not completely destroyed by the prophetic word given. He was given a larger destiny than he had planned for himself.”

“My thoughts are not yours.  Do you not realize how much larger are My dreams for you? They are amazing, they are good.”

“This Christmas will be wonderful with Me. Let Me even now help you to make some plans for the Christmas season, you are going to see what your desires are.”

“See Joseph did not get rid of his desires, he gave those desires in prayer to know the Father’s voice.”

“Joseph ended up with Mary because he chose not to do what he wanted- he chose not to listen and obey his fears- he chose to press through all his fears that he was dealing with so that he could hear My voice.”

“It is the same I want with you. Press through your fears, so we can talk openly.  Be encouraged, this is just an open door to hear your hopes and dreams and go deeper and deeper into My love.”

“Don’t focus your attention on the broken dreams. Share with Me your heart, and look to Me to come in the midst of broken dreams to speak and to share directly with you and restore your hope. Listen to your dreams and look for Me to help you with interpretation of your dreams, for I will heal you in dreams and visions.”

Journal Entry: Father, what are the broken dreams in my life that You want to speak Your heart into?

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?
