Bible ReadingGenesis 28: 10-17

Memory VerseThen Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, “Surely the LORD is in this place, and I did not know it.” Genesis28:16 (NKJV)

Encountering God means coming face to face with the greatest friend we could ever imagine, if only we’ll seek Him. How then do you encounter God?

1. Stay humble: Lay down your crown daily at the feet of the Master despite your numerous kingdom exploits. A proud heart wouldn’t come back for more of Him (2 Chronicles 20:20).

2. Refuse to be complacent: Complacency means self satisfaction. If you are contented about your present spiritual phase, you will not yearn for more. Listen beloved: there is always a new level in God. 

3. Daily treasure hunt from the Word: Someone said he has read his Bible several times and perhaps he’s tired of reading. Such a person needs to know that the rhema of the Word is not the same as the logos. You can spend 5 hours on a single verse when the Spirit of revelation comes upon you. 

4. Stay hungry: Tommy Tenny said, “There’s got to be more“. Only a desirous and hungry deer rushes after the sounds of water. Psalm 42:1 (NLT) says, “As the deer longs for streams of water, so I long for you, O God.” How hungry and thirsty are you?

5. Be inquisitive: Don’t settle for lay man answer. Go deeper in your study and research for deeper understanding on any subject matter. 

6. Walk with like minds: Proverbs 27:17 (NKJV), “As iron sharpens iron, So a man sharpens the countenance of his friend.” Walk with Christians willing to grow. 

7. Pray for a deeper encounter: It is one thing to be willing to grow, and it is another thing for God to be willing to take you deeper.

8. Strive lawfully: Time and chance happens to them all. 

9. Have a regular fasting lifestyle. 

10. Move beyond your normal quiet time to deliberate seclusion for many hours/days. 

11. Grace: Only the confirmation of the grace of God takes a man from one level of encounter to another.

12.Besincere in your quest: Hope your fasting and prayer is not self glorification or mere publicly display of the power of God. Jeremiah 17:10 (NLT), “But I, the LORD, search all hearts and examine secret motives. I give all people their due rewards, according to what their actions deserve.”

Quote: Don’t only stay hungry, further increase your capacity.

Prophetic Decree: Your heavens of encounter blasts open by fire, in Jesus mighty name.

Prayer Focus

1. Today, I receive an insatiable thirst for more of God, in Jesus name.

3. Authority of ease in my spiritual journey with Jesus, fall upon me, in Jesus name.

4. As I open my Bible, may divine scripts open unto me in moving pictures, in Jesus name.
