The Encounter

Rev. Greg Pedersen

Have you had a God encounter lately? A good God encounter is what we need everyday.

Luke 5:11 “And it came to pass that as the people pressed upon him, to hear the Word of God, He, Jesus, stood by the lake of Galilee.”
Encounter means: to meet, help, ponder, union together, or to meet unexpectedly.
Those pressing Jesus had a previous encounter, and wanted more, not food or clothing, not for any selfish reason, but more Jesus. Now Jesus borrowed a boat from Simon Peter so he could minister to all on shore. Peter was experiencing his 1st encounter with Jesus, his eyes were being opened really really wide, Peter was seeing things he had never seen before.
Psalms 34:8 “Oh taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who trusts in him.”
Luke 5:1 stated, “Jesus stood” which means a pillar of strength and hope, also meaning the unseen miracle power of God.
I encourage you to read for yourselves the scriptures shared today, you see the more encounters you have, the more Revelations you will experience.
Peter began his day as a fisherman, but after his encounter with Jesus he became a fisher of men. Praise God for the Encounter of a lifetime.
Have a great day in Jesus…. Pastor Greg
