"We don't seek God's power, we seek his presence.
His power and everything else we need is always found in his presence."
John Wimber

How to use this Resource

For many of us, daily encountering God’s presence and growing in our life with him is a real and deep desire. However, very few of us have ever been shown clear models for exactly how we might build a life lived in the presence of God.

This resource is designed to help with that. It is a step by step guide to building a life of encounter with God one day at a time, that brings change and transformation to our inner life as well as allow us to see the presence of God begin to soak through and influence every situation and place we find ourselves in each day.

Ideally this material is to be used as an essential start to the day, investing in time in the presence of God as a foundation for the hours and tasks ahead. Depending on time availability these steps can be done in as little as 10 minutes or as long as you wish.

As we know everyone is wired differently we have made this resource available to you in a couple of different mediums. You can download the “How to Spend Time With Jesus” walk-through booklet to guide you through the process, give you more background detail and provide you with all the prayers we recommend.

In addition to the booklet we have put together several video resources that walk you through the process in real time.
