Repetitious Experience

August 30th, 2011

Much dripping of the water wears away the stone is a well-known proverb. Our lives and our spirits become grooved; attitudes are formed by repetitious experience. What is the value of daily prayer? Why should I remember the Lord in the days of my youth? If it is done sincerely so it becomes an experience, if you do it until the Word becomes bread to your spirit, if you do it until you seem to feel Christ speaking to you out of the pages, if you pray until you can feel that your breath touches God—then that everyday experience builds up day after day after day. It isn’t very long until there is a rapport between you and the Lord and no hostile thing could ever separate you from it.
