A Solid Experience of God
Our experience of God as light is portrayed in the first chapter of Genesis. In this chapter we see God’s shining, and His separating work. Eventually what comes forth is something of the land, indicating that we actually possess something solid and substantial of God Himself.
Many people may boast of this or that experience of God. It is difficult to judge what is or what is not a genuine experience of God. However, the real test is to discern whether our experience of Him has been according to His principle of operation: have we experienced God as light? Has His enlightenment caused a separation in our life? We should ask ourselves, has our experience of the Lord turned us further from sin and the world? Are we more inclined towards the things of God, or do we still remain engulfed by the pleasures and concerns of this life? Our response strongly indicates whether or not we have actually experienced God.
