There are times when we are pressing into the Spirit one way or another, and we touch a spot that is new. This does not happen as often as we like, but it does happen. The questions that we need to ask are: “what is next?” and “Now what do I do?” I watch too many people have great encounters and experiences then mark them on their calendar or put a notch on their belt and carry on. Before they know it time has gone by and what was great is now just a memory or story that they share about what happened back then.
I am here to say that it does not need to be like that. It is time to add faith with what God is doing on the Earth and go the distance. We need to learn how to revisit our experiences so that we can go deeper. Once we have had an experience, it becomes an open door that we can walk into whenever we want, which takes time and lots of energy, but it is well worth it.
So, this week put some time aside to meditate on past experience that you had with God. Focus on this experience until it becomes alive again. Then at that moment press into God for more. Bring that experience into the now so that you can go deeper into a new level. Honour God for the experience and what He is doing in your life. Make sure you ask lots of questions to stir things up so that God can show up more intensely, but do not forget to ask about the cost. There is always a cost for everything, and God does not show off. He is looking for the ones who will hold His hand and walk the distance with Him.
Are you one who will walk that distance and pay the cost? Are you?
Timothy, author and friend of God, shares out of a place of daily walking face-to-face with the Lord, encountering both the angelic and the saints of old, seeing and understanding things from a heavenly perspective.
