A devout unbeliever for almost 40 years experienced a miracle. He said that one encounter with God was all it took.
A Devout Unbeliever
The founder of Men on the Frontlines, Robert Hotchkin, shared with Patricia King his beautiful encounter with God. He was a devout unbeliever for almost 40 years. According to him, he was once an anti-Christian and was actively against it. Then, a miracle happened. “There was a day that came, where the Lord appeared to me outside of a cabin in the woods in Montana where I was splitting wood. And He declared, ‘I refuse not to love you,’” he recalled.
Because of this encounter, he felt God’s love and acceptance. He said that it changed everything in his life. In fact, he believed that God could change anything for anyone at any time. For almost 40 years, he was against the gospel and the church, but God supernaturally changed his perspective. “One encounter with God is all it took,” he testified. After that, he learned to look back and discovered that all throughout the years, God was with him. He was protecting and guiding him.
Encounter with God
“He helped me realize that it wasn’t all of a sudden that day; he loved me. It was all of a sudden that day I was able to receive the love that had always been there,” he recounted. Furthermore, he admitted that he failed to notice what God was doing for 40 years, but his perspective slowly shifted.
Moreover, he also shared how he handled the negative thoughts about his past. The first thing that he would do is go to God. He chose to stay honest and vulnerable with Him. Then, God would always highlight a scripture to Him. “Something would bubble up in my spirit, or the next time I was in the Bible, a scripture would jump off a page at me. And I’d say, ‘No, this is the truth. This is who I really am,’” he remarked. Reading God’s word helped him walk along his identity in the Lord.
