The Pathway To Life Changing Encounters 3

And it came to pass, when all that knew him beforetime saw that, behold, he prophesied among the prophets, then the people said one to another, What is this that is come unto the son of Kish? Is Saul also among the prophets?

1 Samuel 10:11

“You prepare for life changing encounters by possessing a settled faith.”

Your destiny in God can never happen without you having certain life-changing encounters. Peter, James and John all had diverse life changing encounters which made for the actualization of their destinies. Our Lord and Master had diverse life changing encounters, otherwise, He never would have fulfilled His prophetic destiny. However, as we have already established, life changing encounters do not just happen, they are prepared for. JESUS prepared through 40 days of fasting and prayer for life changing encounters with the anointing of the Holy Ghost.

The seriousness you attach to any covenant event is crucial to you getting serious results. There is no meeting more serious and more important than a meeting with God. All you could ever dream, hope, desire or think of can be delivered in that one event. A meeting with God is a life changing meeting and you must prepare by possessing a settled faith.

What is a Settled Faith? Faith that has no doubt.Faith that does not waiver.Faith that says if only I can attend I.W.C, my blind eyes will open, my children will come, a life of poverty will become history for me forever. It is the kind of faith that the friends of the man who was sick of paralysis had when they got to the place where JESUS was ministering. There was no space for them to take him in and so they uncovered the roof and let down the bed carrying the sick Mark 2:2-5.


  1. It imparts determination. You become determined to do whatever you need to do. Your mind is made up. With determination, no one can stop you from attending; no rain nor shine. You are in each service because you are determined, no one can distract you – Isaiah 50:7
  2. A solid hope (Hebrews 11:1, Romans 4:18). A settled faith is hopeful. To be hopeless is to be helpless.You are expectant. You are looking forward to your life changing encounter.
  3. A confidence that never fails (Mark 10:49-50, Hebrews 10:35). Blind Bartimaeus was too confident that he won`t have to beg again. He threw away the garment.The woman with the issue of blood was too confident that she shall be made whole.She was not there to try; for her it was a done deal.
  4. The action attribute. Faith is not faith until acted – Mark 5:27.

Just Do It

  • Focus on having a revelation knowledge of God – His integrity, ability and sovereignty. Daniel 11:32
  • Get into the Word studying and meditating on it particularly in the area you need an encounter.
  • Ponder on the testimonies of others. Whatever it is, with a settled faith you cannot miss your life changing encounters. Don’t just attend I.W.C 2023; go to encounter God and be settled that your entire life will change.


  1. Father in the Name of JESUS, I receive grace to cultivate a settled faith.
  2. Oh God, give me a testimony in I.W.C that will permanently delete every form of reproach in my life; turn me into a living wonder.
