Freedom in Thanksgiving: a week of divine encounter

How do we describe a week with such a strong Presence of God?

We could speak of deep encounters with God
or his closeness during worship
or deeper revelation on living out a life of thanksgiving
or a perfect morning for breakfasting on the beach
or freedom in the Holy Spirit
or healing and liberation from what’s held us captive
or appreciating so much more of God
or experiencing his goodness, loving kindness and tender mercies

We could let some of the comments from those who joined us, speak for themselves:

This week has been balm to my soul. The sense of God’s presence has been beautiful and the worship deeply joyful.

I cannot thank God enough for bringing me to Nicholaston House and the deep restorative work he has done through the place and the people here. His presence is more real here than any other place I have stayed. The teaching on Freedom in Thanksgiving is life changing. I experienced a closer encounter with God than for many months or even years. The prayer ministry I received was incredible. Overall, I have received deep healing and drawn closer to Father’s heart.

The lessons and worship have been a true blessing … I have found peace and rest

Such a gift, these last few days. It just kept on giving. All of it was wonderful. I felt the presence of the Lord at all times. My anxieties melted away to Father God. The teaching is almost beyond words, the knowledge, expertise and over firm faith.

Good to be in a peaceful place … hear God’s clearer voice … be restored … enjoy breakfast on the beach … feel loved …learn thanksgiving is a good platform to honour, worship and hear from God

Following 6 months of periodic prayer ministry at Nicholaston House during which the Lord helped me remove the labels of wrong beliefs I had taken upon myself, including fear of the Holy Spirit … during this week, he dismantled the final blocks of my “Jenga tower” of depression. I have been healed and delivered from over 20 years of depression. Praise God!

God is good! And we believe we are in a season of greater manifestations of his amazing works and Presence. Thanks be to God!

Our next event is Freedom in Forgiveness, 28 April – 2 May. Join us and be a part of God’s blessings!

Encounter Weekend: The Mustard Tree, St. Ives. 6-9 Nov

I feel complete and whole and very blessed with so much love I receive and can now freely give
… a glorious weekend … it’s amazing how the Lord met my different needs

Two testimonies from a weekend in which we were once again favoured by the healing and restoring presence of Jesus! Shaming events in our lives can leave us with a legacy that overrides our God-given identity and makes us feel unwanted, unloved and irreparably damaged, resulting in negative thoughts and behaviour towards ourselves and others. But God’s promise is to restore what we have lost! This weekend we engaged with this promise, expressed by the prophet Isaiah (61:7) in the words:

Instead of their shame my people will receive a double portion… instead of their disgrace they will rejoice in their inheritance… everlasting joy will be theirs

Not just a great promise, but one that God commits himself to, through a binding agreement (or covenant), as Isaiah goes on to say,

In my faithfulness (says God) I will reward them and make an everlasting covenant with them

As someone else noted at the weekend, “I will hold onto this covenant thought and this will truly be a blessing”.

Great shelter for breakfast on the beach

Great shelter for breakfast on the beach

An unexpected blessing at Sunday morning’s breakfast on the beach at Carbis Bay! For the first time in all our Encounter Weekends we were provided with a wonderful shelter – a reminder, someone remarked, of God’s protective covering over us. The weather may not have been typically warm and sunny Galilee, yet we were there! “The experience I had on the beach, with the waves coming in and going out, taking all my troubles with it …..”.

The House of Prayer is always a special place for us on our visits to St.Ives. Once more, the sweet Presence of Jesus filled the place, as we soaked in the ministry of His Holy Spirit. “At the prayer room I felt God released me from all the tough questions and confusion and disturbance within me”; “At the prayer room, God spoke to me about releasing anger and other things I’m holding onto”.

Great thanks to John and Anne for their hospitality, wonderful care and excellent food! Looking forward to the next Encounter Weekend in 2016. DO join us, whether or not you’ve been before.
