God’s truths written on the walls of our hearts - How exactly does this occur?

Mark Virkler's picture

It sounds very exciting to me to have God's truths written on the walls of my heart because I know that if I don’t doubt in my heart, I can cast mountains into the sea (Mk. 11:23). So how do God’s truths get written on the walls of my heart?  I assume heart faith is different than head belief so what exactly is heart faith?

Our heart has its unique language

The language of the heart is flow (Jn. 7:37-39), pictures/imagination (1 Chron. 29:18 KJV), emotions (Gen. 6:6), and pondering/meditation (Ps. 77:6).

I must use the language of the heart if I want to write a message on the walls of my heart.

This flow is the River of God, the Holy Spirit, Who lives within my heart and grants me flowing thoughts and flowing pictures. As I ponder and meditate upon these pictures which God has implanted into my heart, my heart becomes charged with God’s emotions. (Remember the principle that emotions are by-products of the pictures I gaze upon.)

Getting a promise from God is where faith began with Abraham, the Father of Faith

Abraham, the Father of Faith, received his promise from God through a rhema word, God speaking to his heart (Gen. 12:1-3). God followed this up with a vision of the promise already fulfilled - millions of stars, millions of children (Gen. 15: 1-6). Paul said that faith comes by hearing and hearing the rhema of God (Rom. 10:17). So faith begins with God’s revelation being poured into my heart. I receive this revelation by asking for it, fixing my eyes on Jesus, tuning to flow, and recording the flowing thoughts and pictures that come.

The wording of heart statements is important

A heart statement is present tense, personal, positive truth. Here are some of King David’s heart statements which are personal, present tense, and positive.

  • You, O LORD, are a shield about me (Ps. 3:3)
  • The LORD sustains me (Ps. 3:5)
  • You have smitten all my enemies (Ps. 3:7)
  • When Abraham introduced himself to others, saying, "Hello, my name is Abraham," he declared, "I am the father of a multitude of nations" (that is what the word Abraham means). So he was declaring a personal, present tense, affirmative reality BEFORE his wife was pregnant with their first child. Abraham did not say, "I have a goal of being the father of many nations."

GOALS don’t write truth on our hearts because they are NOT present tense

  • Not this: “My goal is vibrant health.”
  • But this: “I am in the state of vibrant health” (Isa. 53:5).
  • Not this: “I have cancer.” I am affirming, personal, and present tense, but affirming sickness, not health, so not fully true according to the Bible (Isa. 53:5).
  • But this: “I live in the state of divine health and all symptoms are disappearing.”

A summary of how truth gets written on the walls of our hearts

  1. Revelation by the Spirit (Jn. 7:37-39; Lk. 24:32,45)
  2. Pictured and meditated upon until it is written on the walls of my heart (Ps. 19:14; 49:3; Prov. 4:20-23)
    • Spoken as my present tense reality (Ps. 3:3)
    • Positively affirmed (Mark 11:22-24)
    • Visually seen (Matt. 13:34; Eph. 1:18; Gen. 15:6; Eph. 1:17,18)
    • Emotionally felt (Matt. 14:14; Rom. 14:17; 15:13; Gal. 5:22).  
  1. Acted upon (Ja. 2:17,20; Matt. 9:6,7).

Inner healing involves writing truth on the walls of our hearts

Inner healing is inviting Jesus to step into the pictures in the art galleries of our minds, replacing pictures that do not have Jesus in them with pictures that do.

  1. Picture the scene of the hurt.
  2. Ask Jesus to appear.
  3. Tune to flowing pictures & thoughts & record them.
  4. New emotions flow, guided by these new pictures.

Record and speak what Jesus has said as your personal, positive, present-tense reality.

Perfect peace comes by gazing only at the new picture of this healed scene, the picture with Jesus in it (Isa. 26:3)

  • "The steadfast of mind (“yêtser” = imagination) You will keep in perfect peace because he trusts in You" (Isa. 26:3).

Heart faith is truth written on the walls of my heart

Heart faith is revelation truth pictured, pondered, and spoken as my present tense, positive,

visually-seen, emotionally-felt reality, which I am acting on.

Twelve Weeks to Spiritual Mastery - Group Coaching

A group coaching experience with Mark Virkler

Because I could not find a Spirit-anointed teacher/coach, I spent ten extremely frustrating years seeking to hear God’s voice!!! Suggestions offered did not help me, things like: “You just know that you know. It is a still small voice. He speaks from your heart.” No one could give me the answer I needed which was: Hearing God’s voice is as simple as quieting yourself down, fixing your eyes on Jesus, recognizing His voice as spontaneous, flowing thoughts and writing down His flow as it is coming. Test what you have written after the flow is done, NOT while it is occurring.

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?
