When God Encounters One

In the place where God gets one’s attention or where God encounters one:

  1. One would see God
  2. One would hear God
  3. One would receive instruction & direction

Before God gets one’s attention, one would be causing trouble, using force, promoting self and getting stressed.

Examples are Moses & Saul:

  • Moses was using force to attempt to deliver the Israelites, but until God encountered him (using the burning bush to draw his attention), he did not succeed (Exodus. 2:11-15; 3:1-17)
  • Saul of Tarsus was using force to do what he called God’s work, but until God encountered him on the way to Damascus, he was heading towards destruction (Acts 8:1-3;  9:1-17)

In the place of encounter

  • God would require holiness. He instructed Moses to take off his shoes because he was standing on holy ground (Exo. 3:5)
  • God will humble one. He first allowed Saul to become blinded, then Saul knew he was encountering God (Acts 9:1-9)
  • God will commission one. Both Moses and Saul were commissioned after purification and humbleness (Exo. 2:25; 37-12; Acts 9:10-16)
