THE PLACE OF ENCOUNTER-2
Genesis 28:10 “And Jacob went out from Beersheba, and went toward Haran.”
Genesis 28:11 “And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night because the sun was set and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep”
Moses initiated it after praying for forty days and forty nights. John the Baptist had his own after a season in the wilderness too.
Luke 1:80 “And the child grew and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his shewing unto Israel.”
Even Jesus went into the wilderness for forty days and nights as well. The common thing with everyone that had encounters however is that they withdrew from the crowd in order to be with God.
Many people want a great life but are too busy mentally, physically and emotionally for God to have a personal conversation with them. God is interested in having personal discussions with us but many seems too engaged with other activities.
Isaiah 30:15 “For thus saith the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and ye would not.”
God said here that what he needed from us is quietness so that he can effectively communicate his strength with us but he discovered many of us would not.
Friend, it’s the beginning of a New Year and what a beautiful time to desire a meeting with the Creator and Maker of men! Take a day(s) off, to pray, fast and seek the face of God. A single encounter can change the course of your year and life positively forever.
The tone of the trip of Jacob was set by this particular encounter. He went and came back successfully because he met with God. You and I need to set the tone for the journey of the New Year in the place of encounter as well.
The journey towards destiny is long and you don’t want to travel it without the guidance of God!
To be continued…
