Encounters of the fourth kind…
Today, co-writer Paul Marc Goulet wrote the message of “A Miracle Every Day”. I pray his message and audio will bless you today.
Could it be, on any journey, unexpected meetings can change your life? We are all going through challenges as we deal with this pandemic. The news can come across as depressing, dark and discouraging, but I’d like to ask you to search for encounters of the fourth kind.
On my last trip to Israel, my friend Dr. Joel Freeman had set up a very special tour of an earth-shattering discovery. Little did I know, I was about to meet the head archeologist of Israel. As the tourists left Hezekiah’s tunnel, a tall man pulled out a set of keys and ushered us into a world that had been buried for over 4,000 years. This is when I met Eli.
Have you ever met someone who helped you redefine your beliefs?
More than forty feet below the busy Jerusalem street, we entered a temple carved into the rocks. The altar of sacrifice was there, store rooms and so much more. Eli believed that it was the temple of Melchizedek. My brain immediately rehearsed a Bible verse that spoke of him: “Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine; he was the priest of God Most High.” (Genesis 14:18, NKJV)
Was this truly the very first temple dedicated to the most high God? Although scholars can debate this for the next hundred years, I felt quite convinced that this discovery could answer so many questions about Jesus, the high priest in the order of Melchizedek. ‘The LORD has sworn and will not change His mind, “You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.’ (Psalms 110:4 NASB)
Are you ready for some redefining moments? I’d love for you to enjoy the journey. Goals are wonderful and destinations are cool, but the unexpected relationships make life significant.
I’d also like to encourage you to pray with me: “Dear Jesus, we’re all going through dark days because of this virus, so I’m asking You to help me redefine my life, my purpose and my destiny. Help me meet the right people at the right time. In Your name, amen.”
The journey is not just about who you meet, but sometimes it’s about who meets you.
You’re a miracle.
