How have the past 3 months affected you? Spiritually, my life has been going amazing, and I am stepping into amazing opportunities God has for me. All the while I have been taking some hardcore hits. I was sick for a few weeks, then broke my foot, then had to get all my teeth pulled, just to name a few things. I was getting hit hard. Now, I know how to fight and do warfare, but I was getting my butt kicked. I needed an encounter.
Testimonies Of Encounters
I started getting messages from people who had gone to church regularly. People that had never encountered God, or hadn’t in a long time, told me about crazy God encounters they had been having. The kind of encounter with Jesus that draws you into Him so completely. The kind of encounter that you can’t do anything but believe Him for the rest of your existence.
These stories always encourage me, but sometimes I fall into the trap of being afraid to share the amazing things God is doing in my life because it sounds like bragging. But today, I want to share an amazing encounter I had with Jesus so that you can step into one as well.
Seeing Jesus Face-To-Face
I woke up one morning a couple of months ago, and Jesus was laying there looking at me face-to-face. His presence so filled me with such a wave of relief. I knew He never left, He was never gone. Even though I was talking to Him throughout this mixed difficult and wonderful time, this was another level of amazing presence and encounter, seeing His face and looking into His eyes.
Encounters Are Available For You
You might be thinking, “Well, that’s nice for you, but I never encounter God like that.” Are you ready to set down that mindset and encounter Him today? I challenge you to pray this prayer:
In the name of Jesus Christ, I break off and renounce the lie that I don’t hear God like that and I don’t experience God like that. And Lord I want to feel you and know you. Not just know church, not just know the rules, not see You as a God that’s just going to gently guide me on all the things I need to fix, but know You as a loving Father.
Right now here I am, with all my flaws and mistakes; come encounter me right here right now. Please show me that You can really be that real and show up so I know You directly.
I believe we’re in the biggest move of God in history. God is moving right now to encounter people right at home where they are in a way they’ve never experienced Him before. To be able to experience God, knowing that He’s just as in love with you now as He ever was. He rose for you so you would know it’s possible to have a relationship with Him!
Encounter God’s Freedom Today
Jesus said you are free! There is nothing you can do to separate you from the love of God. You don’t have to separate yourself from Him and clean yourself up. He wants you as you are!
“Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. . . 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 8:34, 38-39
