The Light Daily Devotional – Knowing God by Experience
Focus: Knowing God by Experience
WORD FOR TODAY
The best way to know God is knowing Him by experience. Every issue or challenge you are having is meant to teach you who God is by experience.
“That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched–this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. ” (1John 1:1 NIV)
There is a huge difference between what you experience and what you were told. Deep understanding of God’s personality will not be known adequately by just reading the written pages of the scripture. John spoke the way he did because He was with Jesus and experienced all that was written about Him; He had a discipleship relationship with Him. You cannot speak adequately about the power of God and what He can do until you experience it.
The action point of the word of God in the life of a man is that it should become life. When Goliath threatened the Children of Israel, they were afraid and couldn’t challenge him for 40 days because they saw him as an undefeatable giant but only David saw the fact that he was an uncircumcised Philistines who can be defeated. This is due to the fact that He has experienced God’s victory over the lion and beer in secret.
Daniel also saw the king’s meat as an instrument of defilement while others saw otherwise. It is only men who have experienced God that can see life the way God sees it and act according to His precepts. The assurance that your faith will not fail is in the fact that you must know God by experience.
+ Do you know God by experience?
Prayer: Lord! Help me to know you more by experience in Jesus’ name. Amen!
Emphasis: The man who will not doubt who God is and what he can do is the one who has known Him by experience!
Have a Fulfilled Friday!
