The Light Daily Devotional – Knowing God by Experience
Focus: Knowing God by Experience
The word for today
Genuine knowledge of God is not acquired through reading, hearsay, or examination, but through personal experiences. The true depth of knowledge lies in what we have felt and encountered. In essence, what we know through our personal experiences is what truly matters!
“And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent (John.17.3 NKJV)
In the quest to understand and know God, it is easy to get lost in the abundance of books, teachings, and doctrines that are available. It is easy to rely solely on what we have read or heard from others without actually experiencing God for ourselves. However, it is in the experience of God that we come to truly know Him.
Our experiences with God shape and define our relationship with Him. It is through these experiences that we come to understand His character, His love, His mercy, and His grace. It is through these experiences that we come to know God not just in our minds but in our hearts as well.
We may study the Bible and learn about the stories of the great men and women of faith, but it is in our own experiences with God that we come to truly understand the depth and richness of those stories. We may hear sermons and teachings about the love of God, but it is in our own experiences with His love that we come to truly know it.
Therefore, it is important that we seek to have personal experiences with God. We must be intentional about cultivating a relationship with Him, spending time in His presence, and seeking Him with our whole hearts.

Lord, Let me know you more and more, I receive grace to discover my purpose and mandate by knowing you in Jesus’ name. Amen!
Emphasis: You will only have confidence in the journey of destiny when you know God by experience!
Have a Terrific Thursday!
