The first key to growth is an encounter. My motive and hunger for God vetos my fasting and prayer.
An encounter is a place of intimacy with God. It’s a place of pruning. It is where God builds you.
If you don’t have an encounter, you can’t grow spiritually.
– Apostle Joshua Selman
“Then [with a deep longing] you will seek Me and require Me [as a vital necessity] and [you will] find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.”
Jeremiah 29:13 AMP
