If you believe in God, or a higher power – what has your experience shown you? Faith is a very personal individual experience. It is not and should not be based on what you have learned from someone else. Yes, look at the scriptures your individual faith has, and ask yourself – is this true of my experience? When you listen to someone else teach – has this been proven true for me as well? Psalm 48:3 – God is in her citadels; he has shown himself to be her fortress. Investigate for yourself – what God has shown you.
Lord God, help everyone discover you for themselves who you are. Help them to hear you and not the opinion of someone else who thinks they know better. Amen.
