There are no limitations to God's creativity, and he has put that creativity into us as well. In the summer of 2017, a creative garden was created on the Prayer Mountain (for the Nations) for deep encounters with God. In addition, sites were designed to invite people to meet God in all of his different facets. Because he is our joy, our life, our security, he is the God who sees us, and he has new visions for us and gives us his perspective. Heavenly strategies and solutions are ready for us when we come to Him (Jeremiah 33: 3).
When you walk through the garden, you discover three stone sculptures, each with a strong message:
Surrender- this sculpture shows a person who is facedown before the cross. God wants our whole being, our abandonment, our own desires, ideas and our Yes at the same time to his ways. Being completely devoted to Him means that everything in us bows down to His authority (Ephesians 3:14). We will be hidden in Christ when we surrender (Colossians 3: 3), which this place should express.
Dancing in the River of the Holy Spirit - this shows a child's foot surrounded by water and music. Child-like we may come and ask Him for the Holy Spirit, which he gladly gives to us (Luke 11:13). Joy will fill our hearts through the Holy Spirit, and we will dance and rejoice in the melody of the Spirit. The work of the Spirit will increase in our lives as we go deeper into the rivers and fully trust the Holy Spirit. (Ezekiel 47: 1-12).
Perspective - this sculpture shows an eye through which, one can look into the distance.
God wants to teach us to see things in our lives or in other people's lives with his eyes. For he has the perspective of eternity on our lives (Isaiah 55: 8-9). He sharpens our gaze that we recognize and do the essentials. He also opens our eyes to the supernatural realm so that we can see his heavenly armies rushing to help us (2 Kings 6: 8-23).
You are very welcome to come to the Garden of Encounter (a place of encounter) and meet the wonderful and creative God, so that you will return to your environment strengthened and with a new vision, to change it or to even go to the ends of the earth...
