Today’s devotion comes from 1 Corinthians 9:1 (TPT)

Am I not completely free and unrestrained? Absolutely! Am I not an apostle? Of course! Haven’t I had a personal encounter with our Jesus face-to-face—and continue to see him? Emphatically yes! Aren’t you all the proof of my ministry in the Lord? Certainly!

Paul was changed from a Christian hating murderer to a New Covenant apostle in one encounter with Jesus…

We serve a living God who wants us to experience His love, His grace and His power. If you seek the Lord, you will find Him - in other words, if you desire to have an encounter with God, you will find Him, encounter Him and be transformed from glory to glory into His image! Have faith for a God encounter, have faith while you worship, have faith while you meditate upon His Word, in fact, have faith to encounter God today while at church, or if you cannot make it to church for some reason, have faith to encounter the Lord today as you worship Him at home! One encounter will change your life!

Make this confession of faith - say this out loud with me…

“John 17:17 says that I am sanctified and set apart by Your truth - Your Word is truth - Your Word absolute truth – the Word is for me to walk in, to accept as final truth and for me to stand on, to declare by faith and for me to do – I am who the Word says that I am - I can do what the Word says I can do - I can be who the Word says I can be - Christ in me can do all things – I can do all things through Christ - I have absolute POWER over ALL the Work of the enemy – nothing shall by any means harm me – I have power to raise the dead – I have power to heal the sick – I have power to do the works of Jesus – I have total authority over all of the works of His hands in Jesus Name! – the power and the authority of the creator of all things is on the inside of me – when I speak by faith, I ALWAYS have what I say – As I speak the Word, the Father ALWAYS watches over it to perform it – The Father loves it when I expect Him to ALWAYS perform His EVERY Word! – I always expect the Father to bring to pass every word that I speak according to His Word – God is not a man that He should lie – His Word is literal, His Word is truth and His Word is final!”
