Pondering Supernatural Encounters

Pondering Supernatural Encounters
There is no greater need for pondering the things of God, than comes when we receive a supernatural revelation, dream, and vision or experience an angelic encounter. God breaks through our natural realm in these ways when there is a significant need or event that He is preparing us for. He does not guide or intervene in these ways every day as our relationship with Him and our walk is one of faith based on His Word.
When we have such encounters it is important to ponder them, prayerfully consider them and seek God concerning how we should live in relationship to them. If the event is of God He will see that it comes to pass, but we must have faith in Him to do what He has revealed and be willing to do our part.

Day 4 of our study on Meditating in Scripture.

Mary Pondered the Words in Her Heart, Luke 2:8-19

8 In that region there were shepherds living in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 Then an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid; for see, I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people: 11 to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is the Messiah, the Lord. 12 This will be a sign for you: you will find a child wrapped in bands of cloth and lying in a manger." 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God and saying,14 "Glory to God in the highest heaven,and on earth peace among those whom he favors!" 15 When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, "Let us go now to Bethlehem and see this thing that has taken place, which the Lord has made known to us." 16 So they went with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the child lying in the manger. 17 When they saw this, they made known what had been told them about this child; 18 and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds told them. 19 But Mary treasured all these words and pondered them in her heart.
