How To Have An Encounter With God: Though it is not impossible, there is a

procedure to follow in order to speak with God.The most beloved creation of God

is man, out of all his creations, there is no one who has encountered God

and remained the same. Moses was originally a shepherd, but after having an

spiritual encounter with God, he was chosen to lead the Israelites out of Egypt

Exodus 3, (14) (KJV). Also King Solomon, According to 2 Chronicles 7, the Lord heard

the pleas of King Solomon when he offered burnt offerings as sacrifices to the Lord in

order to ask for the Lord’s blessing on the land. The Bible says in

2 Chronicles 7:11-18: Thus Solomon finished the house of the Lord, and the king’s

house: and all that came into Solomon’s heart to make in the house of the Lord, and

in his own house, he prosperously effected. And the Lord appeared to Solomon by

night, and said unto him, I have heard thy prayer, and have chosen this place to

myself for an house of sacrifice. If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I

command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people; If

my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and

seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will

forgive their sin, and will heal their land. Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine

ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place. For now have I chosen and

sanctified this house, that my name may be there for ever: and mine eyes and mine

heart shall be there perpetually. And as for thee, if thou wilt walk before me, as

David thy father walked, and do according to all that I have commanded thee, and

shalt observe my statutes and my judgments; Then will I stablish the throne of thy

kingdom, according as I have covenanted with David thy father, saying, There shall

not fail thee a man to be ruler in Israel (KJV). Additionally, Abraham had a

one-on-one, friendly contact with God. The Bible says in Genesis 12:1-3: Now the

Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and

from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee:And I will make of thee a

great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a

blessing:And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and

in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed (KJV).

How To Have An Encounter With God: Let’s have a meeting with God because He is

still the same God He was then, now, and forever more. God is the owner of

everything we want and everything we want to become. Nothing is too huge

or too tiny for God to handle, God is the foundation of every man; He created us, and

He knows us better than we know ourselves. The Bible says in Genesis 1:26-27:And

God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have

dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle,

and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and

female created he them (KJV). He did only knows what we will become,

but also our destination, God didn’t change, but man did because he put a

third party in the way of our relationship with God, the third party that man has

permitted to stand between him and God does not cause man to encounter God.

Adam and Eve had been in constant communion with God since the beginning, when

God created them. God frequently went to meet Adam and never let him feel lonely.

They were blameless and believed in Him (Genesis 2:25). However, as soon as they

allowed a third party into their relationship, their eyes were opened and they started to see

each other nakedness. They hide themselves from God, and when He saw them, He knew they had

severed their connection with Him. The Bible says in Genesis 3:9-13: And the Lord

God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? And he said, I heard thy

voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself. And he

said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I

commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat? And the man said, The woman whom

thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat. And the Lord God

said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The

serpent beguiled me, and I did eat (KJV). How To Have An Encounter With God:

Who or what stands between God and man?

The relationship between God and man is hampered by “sin,” as God detests sin, As I stated before,

“God loves man more than all of creation,” therefore He gave us His only begotten son to die for our sins,

but man has enabled the adversary to rob him of his right. The Bible says in John 3:16:For God so loved

the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but

have everlasting life (KJV). How To Have An Encounter With God: The Lord didn’t change; He is still the

same God of Yesterday, today, and forevermore; it is only us humans who have undergone change as a

result of sin. Man has walked so far down the path of sin that it has rendered him deaf to God’s words. If

man can break free from sin, then he will have an encounter with God because sin is the enemy of man.

God has never encountered anyone with whom He has remained the same. In the book of Zechariah,

Joshua is described as follows: Joshua was covered in filthy clothing, but during an encounter he had

with God he asked God to remove them, and God complied. The bible says in Zechariah 3:And he shewed me Joshua

the high priest standing before the angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him.

And the Lord said unto Satan, The Lord rebuke thee, O Satan; even the Lord that hath chosen Jerusalem

rebuke thee: is not this a brand plucked out of the fire? Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments,

and stood before the angel. And he answered and spake unto those that stood before him, saying, Take

away the filthy garments from him. And unto him he said, Behold, I have caused thine iniquity to pass

from thee, and I will clothe thee with change of raiment. And I said, Let them set a fair mitre upon his

head. So they set a fair mitre upon his head, and clothed him with garments. And the angel of the Lord

stood by. And the angel of the Lord protested unto Joshua, saying, Thus saith the Lord of hosts; If thou

wilt walk in my ways, and if thou wilt keep my charge, then thou shalt also judge my house, and shalt

also keep my courts, and I will give thee places to walk among these that stand by. Hear now, O Joshua

the high priest, thou, and thy fellows that sit before thee: for they are men wondered at: for, behold, I will

bring forth my servant the Branch. For behold the stone that I have laid before Joshua; upon one stone

shall be seven eyes: behold, I will engrave the graving thereof, saith the Lord of hosts, and I will remove

the iniquity of that land in one day. In that day, saith the Lord of hosts, shall ye call every man his

neighbour under the vine and under the fig tree (KJV). How To Have An Encounter With God:

Joshua’s life changed when he encountered God, and it has never been the same since. You and I, what

are we? Don’t you believe that we also merit an encounter with God? An encounter with God can provide

you with relief from anything you are going through, Your life will never be the same if you encounter God.

Just look at Joseph, after encountering God, Joseph transformed from a prisoner to a prime minister;

The bible says in Genesis 39:19-23:And it came to pass, when his master heard the words of his wife,

which she spake unto him, saying, After this manner did thy servant to me; that his wrath was kindled.

And Joseph’s master took him, and put him into the prison, a place where the king’s prisoners were

bound: and he was there in the prison. But the Lord was with Joseph, and shewed him mercy, and gave

him favour in the sight of the keeper of the prison. And the keeper of the prison committed to Joseph’s

hand all the prisoners that were in the prison; and whatsoever they did there, he was the doer of it. The

keeper of the prison looked not to any thing that was under his hand; because the Lord was with him,

and that which he did, the Lord made it to prosper (KJV). And in Genesis 41:37-44: And the thing was

good in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of all his servants. And Pharaoh said unto his servants, Can

we find such a one as this is, a man in whom the Spirit of God is? And Pharaoh said unto Joseph,

Forasmuch as God hath shewed thee all this, there is none so discreet and wise as thou art: Thou shalt

be over my house, and according unto thy word shall all my people be ruled: only in the throne will I be

greater than thou.bAnd Pharaoh said unto Joseph, See, I have set thee over all the land of Egypt. And

Pharaoh took off his ring from his hand, and put it upon Joseph’s hand, and arrayed him in vestures of

fine linen, and put a gold chain about his neck; And he made him to ride in the second chariot which he

had; and they cried before him, Bow the knee: and he made him ruler over all the land of Egypt.And

Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I am Pharaoh, and without thee shall no man lift up his hand or foot in all the

land of Egypt (KJV).

What you need to have an encounter with God

1. Walk away from sins: If you have not already, dedicate your life to Christ so that there is no longer any division between you and God. In order to flee away from sins, you must devote your life to God.

2. Have spiritual consciousness: Because God is a spirit, He can encounter with everyone, but if you don’t have spiritual consciousness, He won’t be able to speak to you. When you have spiritual consciousness, God will recognize when you’re ready for an encounter with Him and He will make contact with you.

3. Praying: Prayer connects man to God.

4. Be Grateful: The Lord is moved by gratitude and praise, so always be thankful.

You need those things in order to have a spiritual encounter with God In order for God to encounter you

in every area where you need Him, He never leaves their side. Having God by your side is like having

everything. When God promised that the Egyptians you see today wouldn’t be there any longer, you could

be sure that He would keep His word. The bible says in Exodus 14:13: And Moses said unto the people,

Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will shew to you to day: for the

Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever (KJV).

Have a spiritual connection with God today so that you can experience heavenly rest instead of just

earthly relaxation, no matter what you’re going through, have a personal encounter with God; just as He

was with Job, Elisha, Elijah, and Noah, He can also be that way with you and i. As I said earlier, in order

to please God, we are the ones who should turn away from the path of sin and evil. God is still the same

yesterday, today, and forevermore.

I pray into your life that:

1. The Lord grant you grace, strength, and wisdom to encounter with Him in Jesus’ mighty name, Amen.
