Good morning world, this morning I'd like us to consider a matter in the Scriptures when you check Gen. 28:12-16, that scripture speaks of Jacob's dream where he saw a ladder leading to Heaven with Angels ascending and descending.
But you know my plight is in verse 16 of that scripture "When Jacob awoke from his sleep, he thought, “Surely the LORD is in this place, and I was not aware of it.”(NIV)
This made me realize that the fact that you see a ladder that leads to Heaven with Angels ascending and descending isn't equal to an encounter.
Many of us have gone to awesome programs, Holy Ghost services, conventions, conferences, powerful worship nights and praise nights and we say Oh the Lord moved really but genuinely you didn't have an encounter. Many of us as a matter of fact, weren't aware of His Presence, many at times a lot of us don't carry the attitudes of His Presence.
Everytime God shows up there is a right response to His Presence. An encounter starts. With a deliberate or rather put an intentional mind to get something! That's what makes your life count!
Think on these things!
