Recently I had the privilege of facilitating a group from our church through the 4 Keys to Hearing God's Voice DVD set by Mark Virkler. Nearly 20 people from our church signed up to go through the class. We took 13 weeks to go through this 10 DVD set.
The first week we met we spent the time getting to know each other, passing out handbooks and journals, answering 10 questions about their current ability to hear God's voice. Next we watched 1 DVD a week for 5 weeks. During week 7 – the midpoint of out class, we spent the time practicing hearing God's voice for ourselves – and each other. This was a great opportunity to practice what we had been learning. The next 5 weeks we continued watching 1 DVD per week. The final week we spent going over our initial 10 questions that we had answered during the first weeks class.
The reasoning behind the 10 questions was simple, to give us a basis for understanding where we where before the class, as well as how much we had grown during the class. Our group all experience impressive growth in our ability to hear God's voice through Mark Virkler's teaching. At the beginning of the class most of the people in the group described their ability to hear God's voice as a 1 or 2 on the scale of 1-10. However, by the end of the class most group participants would describe their ability to hear God's voice as a 8-10 on a 10 point scale.
Mark Virkler does an excellent job of teaching everyone how to hear God's voice through the 4 Keys, which are:
- Stillness Yourself Down
- Looking for Vision
- Tuning to Flow
- And Journal
However, in my opinion, the thing that Mark Virkler does better than anything else, is to help you break out of the things that prevent you from hearing God's voice. Many times we hear God's without recognizing it, however, it's the fear and doubt that prevent us from acting on what we believe God is speaking to us. I would highly recommend this teaching to anyone who want's to be able to hear God's voice, it will change your life!
