You will be faced with difficulty.

My question is if "be encountered with" can be a substitute for "be faced with."

"be confronted with" looks possible to me, but I never heard about "be encountered with."

Could you help me with this?

Not likely.


"be confronted with" looks possible to me, but I have never heard of "be encountered with."

That should be a clue.

OK.

No. If you want to use "encounter" in that sentence, you have to say "You will encounter difficulty".
