God has revealed Himself to people in unique ways. God spoke to Moses through a burning bush. God's glorious presence so filled Solomon's temple that the people fell face down on the ground and worshipped. Paul saw the Lord in a blinding light on the road to Damascus.
I have experienced God's special presence many times since surrendering my life to Him in 1945, although I have never seen Him or heard His audible voice.
One dramatic experience happened early in my ministry when He gave me a vision for Campus Crusade for Christ. One evening at about midnight during my final year in seminary, I was studying for a Greek exam. Without warning, I sensed the presence of God in a way I had never known before. Within moments, I had the overwhelming impression that the Lord had flashed His instructions for my life on the screen of my mind.
This was the greatest moment of my Christian life. In a very definite way, God commanded me to invest my life in helping to fulfill the Great Commission in this generation. I was to begin by helping to win and disciple students of the world for Christ.
On countless occasions, God makes His special presence known to ordinary believers. The setting may be a devotional time, church service, a revival, a crisis or just daily life. God chooses the time and place to reveal Himself, and when He does, we never forget the joy of being in His inspirational presence.

Some might give their lives for good people, but God sent His Son to die for sinners, including the ones who put that Son on the cross. No higher demonstration of love is possible.
