In your personal growth and development, you're being invited to experience the
reality of Jesus in a myriad of ways. Through worship, prayer, and other spiritual
expressions, you're able to come into a greater understanding and engagement.
Encounters are strategic moments in God's presence that become a catalyst for action
or the solidification of relationship.
Through these wondrous moments, God may reveal something about your calling or unlock
your giftings. Yet, most are simply touch-points that bring you back to the goodness
and love of the Father.
Encounters are often an invitation to something more. As you're enveloped in the
presence of God, you gain fresh insights and are positioned to go new places. The
Heavenly Father's goodness compels you to go on a journey of exploration and discovery.
As you encounter the Lord, you are brought back into that intimate place that Adam
and Eve once knew. You become like Moses on the mountain when the Lord encircled
him in the cloud. Paul once alluded to this, saying,
“With unveiled faces, we are contemplating the Lord's glory. We are being transformed
into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the
Spirit” (2 Corinthians 3:18).
In truly knowing and experiencing Jesus, amazing things will be brought to bear
upon your life. This not only solidifies your identity and sense of calling, it
also brings you into inexplicable goodness and joy.
You must never forget that your Heavenly Father desires to know and be known.
