When Kristine Dimarco was twenty years old, she was approached in her former San Francisco neighborhood as she was playing her guitar in the street. She was approached by a drunk man who questioned her about why is Jesus God. She suddenly realized that she has been a believer since she was three years of age and never realized why she believed Jesus was God. This led her on a journey of over a year where she experienced fear and doubt regarding her beliefs. She shares her experience in Bethel Music’s short film, “A Supernatural God”.
Her recollection of her experience is so transparent and relatable that I recommend everyone watch and come face to face with their unresolved doubt and fear as they encounter the faith that makes them whole. Once we have a personal encounter with God, that is an experience that can never be taken away from us because it is the personal experience with Jesus that makes our faith alive. It is the beginning of establishing an intimate relationship through fellowship with the Jesus in us so His loving kindness can work through us.
Through establishing an intimate relationship with the Holy Spirit, Who reveals to us a love so sincere, genuine and authentic that we realize it is this kind of love we have been longing to experience in every relationship we have in life. God is the Creator and Great Counselor of every great, healed and healthy relationship. The more we spend time with the Great Counselor of all healthy and genuine relationships, the more we become one with Who He is and attract blessed relationships towards us as we are protected from the relationships that harm us. He is our power to protect our heart with all diligence from the issues of life that flows out of it that tries to kill, steal and destroy our happiness, pleasure and joy in life (Proverbs 4:23).
Psalms 28:6-8 reassure us as the word of God says;
Praise the Lord! For he has heard my cry for mercy. The Lord is my strength and shield. I trust him with all my heart.He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving. The Lord gives his people strength. He is a safe fortress for his anointed king. Save your people! Bless Israel, your special possession. Lead them like a shepherd, and carry them in your arms forever.
