I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”John 16:33 New Living Translation Bible
Although being a Christian for many decades it was not until I endured my crucifixion (We all worship something equal to or more that Christ, in order to be used by Christ this must be crucified. I do not take that lightly. It is the most horrible and excruciating pain and agony you will ever experience. But, on the other side of it you will thank Jehovah for it every day. I do) that I encountered Jesus.
It was during a church service and there was a brilliant light that completely encompassed me. A voice came out of the light and assured me: “I love you and am with you always. I will never leave you nor forsake you. “ There was a washing, like being under a cool waterfall on a blistering hot day of all the pain, hurt, and anguish completely away. It was the most refreshing and cleansing experience ever experienced. That encounter changed my life forever and shall never forget it.
Yes, I had been blessed countless times with the Holy Spirits guidance and strengthening, comforting and encouraging and still am BUT, that could never compare with the encounter with Jesus. I greatly appreciated and still do, the Holy Communion with the Holy Spirit but the encounter with Jesus was WOW.
“One encounter with Jesus Christ is enough to change you, instantly, forever.” — Luis Palau
Prayer: Thank you Jesus ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for the amazing privilege of encountering You so many times. Each encounter leaves me desiring to never leave Your presence.
May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah
