Welcome to the Higher Calling Encounter Room. For the next hour, your room/home is going to become a house of prayer where you can experience deep personal intimacy with God. We are about to enter into a holy place. However, many of our homes/natural spaces we live in may not be the most conducive environment for meeting intimately with the Lord. Therefore, it’s important to set some house rules for this next hour of Encounter. Here are some guidelines that will help you make the most of this time:
- Get into a space where you can be alone in solitude. Maybe this is your own bedroom. Or maybe this will be somewhere more unconventional — like the bathroom or simply putting on headphones where it can just be you and God. Wherever it is, simply “close the door” and shut out all distractions.
- … and put them on Do Not Disturb! Temptations to scroll through our phones during an online conference are high. Do yourself a favor but cutting out that source of distraction so you can hear from the Lord!
- Put your phones out of your physical reach to avert all distractions.
Reading the bible is how we hear from the Lord. Journaling is an organized form of speaking to the Lord. Feel free to use this time of Encounter as a time for you to freely talk to God, and also be sensitive to the Spirit as he highlights different scriptures to you.
Knowing that God is with us changes the way we see things and the way we pray. Be confident that the Lord is present in your environment, and let the knowledge of that change the way you engage with Him.
The Lord desires our worship, our focus and our lives. The Encounter Room during our conference is the place for you to work those things out in your own life, in whatever way you feel comfortable to do so. May the Lord meet you deeply throughout this conference and transform you into the person He wants you to be!
