A God Encounter

Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth. Psalm 46:10 (NIV)

There are no words to fully describe those moments when we truly connect with God. When something deep inside yearns so bad we desperately reach up through that open window to heaven and lock hands with our Creator. These are the delightful moments for which I live. One morning, as I sat writing my thanks to God in a journal, His Holy Spirit came upon me. His still small voice whispered, “Be still and know that I am God.” I laid my pen down and focused on Abba Father. Almighty God is so great, so powerful, so big, and yet so gentle and full of compassion. His Holy Spirit totally consumed me. The radiance of His glory warmed my face. A sweet smelling aroma filled the room. His Spirit lovingly held my inner being, imparting His love, power and life. He filled me with a profound sense of peace. I felt like a young child as I frolicked in the pure joy of His Presence. His tender touch healed my hurts and refreshed my weary soul. He silently filled my broken places with His s trength and made me whole. I fell to my knees and wept because of God’s amazing grace and His goodness. I will never be the same again.

I pray that you may be filled with all the fullness of God (Ephesians 3:19, NKJ). May you be still and seek intimate encounters with our heavenly Father everyday. Amen.
