I was at a Bethel Worship event the other night (worship team from Bethel Church in Redding, CA on tour). One of the songs had a section that said, "I don't wanna talk about You like you're not in the room. I wanna look right at you. I wanna sing right to you." I decided to ask God to let me see His face so I could sing to Him.
Hahahahahaha...be careful what you ask for... ;)
So, I closed my eyes, and within seconds I was face-to-face with a huge lion. Not just a still image. I moving, breathing lion. It's eyes were piercing and focused on me. Yowza!! I was so shocked...and a little freaked out...that I almost jumped backwards. It was an encounter...not with fear...but with power. Jesus, the Lion of Judah. Amazing.
