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? If you are one of His sheep, then He is speaking to you and you are hearing His voice! The problem is that we have not learned how to recognize His voice and differentiate it from all of the other voices that bombard our hearts and minds. This teaching from Mark Virkler has helped thousands of people of every age on every continent begin to recognize the voice of the Lord within their own hearts clearly and consistently, leading to a deeper intimacy with Him as well as greater faith, hope and joy in their lives. This course teaches participants four keys to hearing God’s voice and how to engage in regular dialogue with Him. Participants will learn biblical patterns for approaching God, how to distinguish God’s voice from other voices that clamor for our attention, and how to record what God reveals to them using “two-way” journaling.
