I believe the Holy Spirit is saying that 2015 is to be a year of Divine encounter.
Encounter will take place through Spirit-given hunger that causes you to seek after God. There may also be unexpected moments of encounter—taking place at a time and circumstance when you least anticipate it.
Unpacking Hearts like a Suitcase
The picture I have is of God, in this season of encounter, unpacking hearts, like unpacking a suitcase.
The first thing I see coming out is like package filler or stuffing—it is like when you buy something new and it has been packed in to retain the shape of the product.
And Father is saying, “There are some things in your lives and ministry that are like filler, they have been like a place-keeper, and they have been right and good, but this is a new season.
It is time to yield some things up that are not the essentials, because you need to make room for the more of what I have for you.”
And I see Him taking out articles and examining them, and some He is not putting back, whilst other things He is putting back in a different order.
It’s a time to yield values and priorities to God and be willing for Him to shift them and rearrange them. It is also a time to yield up your abilities, your expertise and experience, and realise that there are some things that He will show you how to do things differently for a greater result.
Be prepared for tweaking and adjustment.
Be prepared to leave the comfortable and familiar, because there is a new harvest and fruitfulness out past the comfort zone of your previous experience.
This takes hunger for God and softness of heart. It takes flexibility. There are some who are not willing, but for whom God’s love and grace is so rich that He will actually allow a breaking in the encounter. And it is because His intention and destiny is so profound and powerful for them.
And the season of encounter is going to result in a transformation. It is going to so profoundly affect your viewpoint and perspective that you wonder why you never realised certain things before.
Because you see differently, you know that you can never be the same again, or do things in the same way. It will result in a significant shift in your life and in the life of your family, relationships, ministry, business, work, church, and every area of your life.
As you embrace the encounter with God and what it means for your life, others around you will also be drawn to encounter. Your obedience and willingness to align with your Father’s intention in the season of encounter will result in your influence will be extended.
Your testimony of what God is doing will cause the hearts of others to hunger for their own Divine appointment. You will become an agent of encounter, and see the ‘unusual’ become commonplace as hearts turn to God.
