An Encounter with Him

Years ago, my son came and stood next to me. I asked him how was his sleep and if he had good dreams. He smiled and said, “Yes! I had a dream I was in heaven!” I asked him, “What was it like in heaven and what did you see?” He said he saw Jesus and He looked strong and powerful. He said Jesus showed him how strong He is and that lightning came out of His hands. He then said, “I want to go to heaven someday. I’m not afraid of God anymore!” Then he walked away and began to play with his siblings. I stood there in complete awe that my son had an encounter with the Lord, and his encounter caused him to no longer be afraid. One thing I learned in that moment is a real encounter with the Lord produces courage.

My sister, each time we pray to our Father or open our Bibles, we have an opportunity to have a real life-changing encounter with Him. We have an opportunity to experience the Lord in all His glory, and see ourselves the way He sees us! The more we learn about Him, the more courage will rise in our hearts! His perfect love truly does cast out all fear and gives us the courage to do what we thought was impossible!

“We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love. God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them. And as we live in God, our love grows more perfect. So we will not be afraid on the day of judgment, but we can face him with confidence because we live like Jesus here in this world. Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear. If we are afraid, it is for fear of punishment, and this shows that we have not fully experienced his perfect love. We love each other because he loved us first” 1 John 4:16-19, NLT.

Prayer: Father, the more I understand about you, the less afraid I am. Make yourself real to me more and more each day. Let your perfect love remove all fear. Increase my courage and faith in you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
