The amazing thing is that we DO have a Wonderful Counselor! Yes, it is true schools and colleges and sporting events have shut down. Businesses, stores, cruises, and theme parks have closed. Nations have sealed their borders. Fear is ready to surmount reason.
In the midst of this, the Bible says:
For a child will be born to us … the government will rest on His shoulders… His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace (Isa. 9:6).
Every one of us needs to hear from our Wonderful Counselor NOW! He tells me, “For heaven’s sake, celebrate!” When we celebrate, 1) we declare that God is in control and our trust is in Him; 2) we become beacons of hope to a frightened world; 3) our immune systems are strengthened. Not bad from just four simple words from our Wonderful Counselor. And guess what? He has a lot more to say than four simple words!
You can hear His voice every single day as we walk through this crisis. You can be restored to faith, hope and peace every single morning during your devotional time as He speaks to you.
Are you hearing the voice of your Wonderful Counselor?
Receiving this wonderful counsel only works if I know how to hear His voice, take the time to ask, listen and receive, and then, of course, act on what He has spoken.
In my early Christian life, this was not possible for me as I was taught (and believed) that He was no longer speaking. This changed when I discovered the verse, “My sheep hear My voice” (Jn. 10:27). I then believed I should be able to hear His voice, but I still couldn’t because I had no idea that His voice sounds like “spontaneous, flowing thoughts which light upon my mind as my eyes are fixed on Jesus.”
Since I learned that truth, I am able to have a two-way dialogue with Jesus every morning, which I have done for the last 40 years of my life. Wow! What a treasure!!! What I read about in the Bible is NOW my own daily experience. From Genesis to Revelation they heard God’s voice. Now, so do I! Thank You, Jesus!
In our training package on "Counseled by God" you will learn how to hear Father's voice, and how to let Him speak to you concerning fear, anger, inferiority, hopelessness, past trauma and much more. You will begin to see Him working in every situation so that peace can rule in your heart.
Let us walk in the footsteps of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ who spoke peace in the midst of the storm and calmed the waves. It is now our commission to do the same, as we are now seated with Him in heavenly places, ruling and reigning.
An example of hearing God’s voice – Seated with Jesus in heavenly places
Lord Jesus, I come to You. Where do You want to meet me today?
Mark, I want to meet you in heaven. Because that is where I live and that is where you live, seated with Me in heavenly places.
Lord, I come. What do You want to show me?
Mark, I want you to see Me seated next to you in heaven. We are on thrones, and we rule the earth. We look out over the earth’s atmosphere and we see deeply down through it onto the earth’s surface. As we peer with eyes of love and compassion, we see the hurts and the needs of My people. We see them limping from pains in their bodies and within their souls and spirits. And we reach out a hand of grace to touch them, to heal them. You do it with Me as you are now My hands and My feet on this earth. You look with eyes of compassion. You ask if there are needs that people want prayer for. They tell you yes, and you pray and release My Heaven on your earth.
Many are open to receiving it, and they do, and lives are transformed by My divine touch. So reach out and touch those whom I place around you. They are hungry for a touch from heaven. Many are at their wits' end, not knowing how to move forward. I have the answer for them. I can provide it through you. Go and be My feet in a lost and lonely world. Go and be Me.
Thank You, Lord. And yes, I will go.
Testimony from John Arnott - Founding Pastor of Catch the Fire Toronto
"The course, 'Counseled by God' is worth a million dollars to me. It moved the issues of life from the theoretical and theological right down into the heart. In the second chapter Mark made this outrageous statement that every accusative thought is of the Accuser, and every positive, life-giving, up-building thought is from the Holy Spirit, the giver of life. I realized that 80 percent of my own thinking was negative. It so smote me in my heart. I prayed, 'God, this is completely unacceptable - completely! I cannot go through my life with 80 percent of my mind yielded to the enemy, to the Accuser!' …"
