Pray that the 2020 World Agents of Change Conference will be a mountain of diverse encounters with God for every participant.
Pray that as you attend this edition of the conference, the Lord in His mercies will grant you a life changing encounter in Jesus Name.
“…Then he said, “I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob.” At this, Moses hid his face, because he was afraid to look at God”
I am the God of your father…. unless you have a personal encounter with God, He will remain the God of your fathers. He will remain the God you learnt about in Sunday School, the God of whom you’ve heard and read great stories but who unfortunately you’ve never met.
Moses was in a similar situation until he ran into this God of his fathers while leading the flock of Jethro his father in-law at the backside of the desert. That encounter with God changed everything for Moses, he moved from being a fugitive to becoming one of the greatest deliverers in the history of Man.
An encounter with God can indeed change everything, just as we see again in the life of Saul in Acts chapter 9 when he had an encounter with the Lord on his way to Damascus to persecute believers. Saul emerged from that encounter as a chosen vessel for the Lord.
As we follow the story of these two men, Moses and Saul through the scriptures, we realize that the effect of the encounters both men had with God never really left them all through their Journey. In Deuteronomy 33:16, we see Moses while blessing the tribes of Israel in his old age invoking the blessings of the God who dwelt in the burning bush upon the tribe of Joseph. And we also see Paul referring to his encounter with the Lord on the way to Damascus in the later stages of his ministry while making a defense before King Agrippa in Acts 26.
As we gather at this 2020 edition of the World Agents of Change Conference, it is our earnest prayer that God in His mercies will grant every participant a life transforming encounter that we would still be making reference to even in our old age.
And so shall it be in Jesus mighty Name.
