Does your life with Jesus feel stagnant? When I was 15, I walked into a church and experienced the presence of the Lord. From that moment my heart realized the transformative power of encountering God, not just studying Him. I knew all about the Jesus of the bible, and even prayed to Him, but had not connected to His living presence before.
You Were Made for Encountering the Presence of God
Life altering encounters with Holy Spirit sustain you in your most difficult seasons. Often, just one touch from God is what we need to remind us of who God is and who we are in the midst of struggle.
Encountering God is for everyone. He is not a formula to solve and get access to, He is a person. God has thoughts to share with you. He gives wisdom, encouragement, and correction daily. I believe that as we re-new our minds to understanding that God is Immanuel–God with us–our encounters become even more impactful.
His Presence is Always With You
“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:38-39)
God doesn’t leave you. Because His presence lives in you, there is always access to more of Him. As you bring this to mind, your life together becomes wildly bright and full of vitality. Holy Spirit is a person on the inside of you, meant to transform your heart daily. Encounters lead to the fruit of a life with God. Are you eager for the more of God? I encourage you to ask Him today to bring to your attention how He speaks to you in your daily life. Anticipate God’s nearness, His presence, and power in your life today.
