If we don’t experience God, we will not live in the purpose He created for us. We also make our life more difficult than necessary. When we experience God, burdens are replaced by peace. We live victoriously instead of victimized. The Bible says: “I cry out to God Most High, to God who fulfills his purpose for me. He will send from heaven and save me; he will put to shame him who tramples on me. Selah God will send out his steadfast love and his faithfulness!” (Psalms‬ ‭57:2-3‬) The more we experience Him, the less we ever want to leave His side. What does it mean it mean to EXPERIENCE God?

After our soul and spirit are born again by accepting His gift of salvation, we are babies. We must grow and learn God’s language so we may communicate with Him. This is more than just an intellectual pursuit of Biblical knowledge. Learning His Word teaches us who He is and how to get close to Him. However, if we never put into practice what we learn about knowing Him–we will never experience Him. We will miss the best part of the life He intends for us while on earth.

Communication with God is fundamental to experiencing Him. Jesus gave us the model prayer in Matthew 6:9-13. When we study and apply it with the intensity and passion of someone who really wants to know God, we learn–to adore Him with all our heart, praise Him for who He is, thank Him for all He does, ask for His will in all things, ask for what we need not what we want, confess our sins, forgive others, ask that He be our guide–just to name a few! When our communication with God becomes more than just a prayer list, our soul is enlightened. We begin to experience the fullness and satisfaction of a relationship with Him that is far, far beyond anything we ever imagined possible. Our life is lived in the Divine purpose that the Psalmist referenced. Although it’s impossible to communicate in words its full magnificence, this is the genesis of how we experience God.
