Linda Burton Journals about Luke 14

Mark Virkler's picture

The wonderful testimony and journaling below comes from one of our students, Linda Burton. Enjoy this word from the Lord!

"We were out of town in late January and had a lot of work facing us when we arrived home.  Even though I read the book of Luke while we were traveling, I felt like I needed to re-study the second half as I felt like there was more to glean from this section of Scripture.  I journaled on Luke 14 and I received revelation on keeping my eyes on Jesus. I believe my relationship with Jesus is growing in ways I have not experienced before. It feels like I am feeling it deep in my heart and not just learning it in my head.  I am seeing practical ways to apply what I am learning.  It is making sense in ways it has not before.  Feels good!"

Feb 24, 2015 - Journaling about Luke 14

Lord Jesus, would You please teach me about the parable of the ambitious guest, inviting the poor, crippled, lame and blind, and the parable of the Great Supper?

Narnie, so many people seek a place of importance among men.  They have to be looked upon with grandeur.  In My Kingdom, it is not to be so.  My Father is to be elevated and glorified, not men.  Do you not realize that My Father has great compassion for those who men look down upon?  Did you not feel the Father’s love for you when you had a broken knee, when your legs would not work, when you have struggled to overcome sin, when life just didn’t work right for you?  Those were the times when you were most honored by the Father.  He heard your cries and He answered.

Lord, what about the Great Supper? 

For all the time of history I have knocked on the hearts of men, women and children.  Come to My Father’s feast.  I have given a welcome invitation to Israel.  So many have had excuses and turned My invitation down.  I turned to the Gentiles.  Narnie, I am crying out to all people everywhere.  Come, you are invited to the greatest marriage feast ever.  People have hearts that are centered on themselves and their agendas.  Their eyes are not focused upon Me.  Now do you see, Narnie, why it is so vitally important that you keep your eyes focused upon Me?  Otherwise, you too may make an excuse and not come to the wedding feast.

Lord, what about the gift I am to bring to the wedding feast? 

Narnie, the gift has already been bought.  It is the gift of your acceptance of My sacrifice.  The gift of your love and your relationship.  The gift of your obedience and faithfulness.  Do you understand you were once poor, blind, lame and sick?  All you had to give was your humble self.  That, Narnie, is the gift I desired - all of you. 

I see, Lord, that if we have our vision on something or someone other than You, it will become bigger in our sight than You and we will miss the Great Supper and the great relationship and walk with You.  I also see that if our eyes are on something other than You, we will miss the best You have for us. 

Narnie, keep your eyes on Me!

Have you ever wished you could just sit down and have a long talk with the Lord? Wouldn't it be wonderful to move beyond having a theology that states that God loves you to actually hearing Him whisper words of love into your heart? When you're worried or confused, wouldn't you love to see the situation from His perspective and hear how He wants you to respond? When things don't seem to be going your way and your prayers aren't answered the way you had hoped, wouldn't it be great to hear Him tell you where He is in the midst of it, and what He is working out in your life? Are you ever just a little bit jealous of others who say with such confidence, "The Lord said...."?

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?

A new book has just been released that accompanies this workbook: Click here for Hearing God Through Your Dreams by Charity Kayembe and Mark Virkler (featured on Sid Roth's "It's Supernatural", with almost a million views just on YouTube).

Do you often wake up feeling there was a significant message in your dream, but you’re just not sure what it is? Like Daniel and Joseph, do you long to be able to help others understand their own dreams and win them to Christ as you explain His night messages to them? Wouldn't it be nice if you could receive mid-course corrections from the Lord while you sleep? Do you wish you could be receiving divine inspiration, creative solutions to problems, and direction from the Lord during that third of your life that you’re “just” sleeping?
