Many encounters in life are able to completely change the course of our lives, but everything depends on whether or not we decide to show up – when we meet the person we fall in love with; when we discover the degree we want to study; when we meet someone who can transform our company. However, the encounter that none of us can afford to miss is our encounter with God.

This year has been a precious new season for encounters in our church. The first in the year was attended by a group of 1051 women who experienced a truly glorious encounter. We were able to see how God really moved in their lives. It was a time when many came back to their first love and others came to know God as their everything.

What is an encounter?

As the word itself suggests, it is when we encounter God and enjoy the rich blessings He has prepared for us – which we attain through faith. It is a time when we set aside our daily routines to be able to receive a supernatural change. “For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved” Romans 10:10.

what do we receive on an encounter?

  • We allow Jesus to enter our life – Revelations 3:20

  • We become a child of God and enjoy all the privileges – John 1:12

  • Assurance that God lives inside us – 1 Corinthians 3:16

  • Knowledge that we are no longer alone in this world because we have an amazing friend who guides us into all truth – Jesus Christ – John 16:13

  • Inner healing

  • A revelation of the cross

According to John 17:3, the most important thing is to know Christ. When we have a supernatural encounter, we understand the crucifixion and are able to leave our past at the cross of Calvary.

It is important that after the encounter, everyone who attended starts writing a devotional to help them in their daily Bible reading.

how to WRITE a daily devotional

From what you read daily, you should find a:

  • Rhema Word (the specific word that God speaks to your life).

  • Reflection = Teaching for the day (the commandment to obey).

  • Motivation = The promise for your life.

  • Personal Application = How you can put into practice what you learnt from the Word.
