Faith From Experiences

Have you ever thought about whether or not the light would come on before you turned the light switch on? 

Because I have the familiar experience of having successfully done it countless times before, I don’t even think about it,..

I just know it will work. 

Even when that 1 in a thousand times happens when the bulb is burnt out, I replace the bulb without thinking and the light comes on. 

That is faith. 

When I am staying in a new or unfamiliar place like a hotel or a friend’s home, I instinctively know that if I just find that light switch, the light will come on. 

That is faith. 

I cannot see the mechanics involved and I certainly have no electrical training or background in engineering, but because I have experience with the process, I trust it works and neither debate it, nor give it a second thought. 

That is faith

 OK, so this next part may not apply to you Spiritual giants… 

Now, why then do I want to debate with God over trivial things? 

Why do I expect the answer before I even begin a task that is new or unfamiliar? 

Where is my trust being placed? 

Where oh where is my faith? 

 Has He not brought me this far in life successfully through things I have had no control over? 

Why do I even think I need to discuss the new thing with Him? 

Where is my faith? 

Check your experience…… 

“The great fact is just this, and nothing less: That we have had deep and effective spiritual experiences which have revolutionized our whole attitude toward life, toward our fellows, and toward God’s universe.” Big Book pg 25 

Lord, like the light switch, let us place our trust in You based on our experience with You, AMEN. 

“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1 

Have a blessed day Y’all!
