Rick Joyner: An encounter with God Changes Us
The Lord is always with us and will be when even two are gathered together. Even so, there is a great difference between this and the “manifest presence of the Lord.” The life of Moses is a good example of how the manifest presence of the Lord can change us. He was eighty years old, having spent the last forty years of his life in the lowest profession of the times, as a shepherd. He was probably considered by all, including himself, as washed up and finished!
However, one encounter with the manifest presence of the Lord changed this washed up old man into a spiritual giant who delivered a nation.
