An Encounter With God – by Steve Burke

26 November 2007 No Comment

The desert is the place of testing, preparation and growth!

One thing I have desired of the LORD, That will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the LORD, And to inquire in His temple. (Psalm 27:4)

Are you suffering from self-pity?

In several previous devotionals, I’ve mentioned the positive impact that Steve Burke, founder of The Lord Will Provide, has had on Culpeper. It’s amazing to watch His-story (God’s story) in the making. On November 19, I received an email from Virginia Morton, the “quarterback” of our Pray Culpeper team, stating:

“I am forwarding to you a message below from Steve Burke with his permission. I’m not sure if he sent this to you. I was so blessed and honored when Steve called me to tell me about his encounter with God while he was here. The story is breathtaking! But the important point Steve wanted me to realize is that God is moving in Culpeper. This will encourage you, especially with our Thanksgiving Service tomorrow night.

Steve also sent me this note, which I thought you would appreciate since you’ve read “The Dream Giver.” 

I actually reviewed The Dream Giver by Wilkinson and I have just passed through “Sanctuary” on my way down into the valley to defeat the giants… God’s perfect timing.”

As I read Steve’s story, tears flowed out of my eyes. I subsequently emailed him to ask for permission to include his story in a future devotional. After making a few minor revisions, Steve emailed me his final version on November 24. Later that day, he posted his full story at his blog.

Be sure to visit today’s Link of the Day to read Steve’s miracle story!

Prayer Power
LORD, my one desire, that will I seek, is to dwell in Your house all the days of my life, to behold Your beauty and to inquire in Your temple. You are my God. There is no other. Praise the LORD! Let all my soul praise Your holy name. Amen and hallelujah!
