The Purpose Of Experience

-->
Today we will talk briefly about the word experience, and it is our intent to dig for the revelation of this word in relationship to how God wants us to view it. Firstly, every experience that will ever take place in our lives has been predetermined by God himself, and the sole purpose of that experience was to make us better at making future decisions and to instruct and counsel other correctly.

Now, the catch would be, one must learn from each experience. If not, sooner or later the experience will repeat itself. You see the experience is a lesson within itself, and again for the sole purpose of making future decisions.

In bringing this revelation altogether, we have to first recognize that we are creatures of comparison, what this suggests is that before we make any decision we always compare the decision we are about to make to a personal past experience, or the experience of someone else. Basically our minds are computing second by second in an effort to make the best decision, because the quality of our decisions are based on our experiences.

So, each experience has embedded in it wisdom and understanding whether that experience is good or bad, we are responsible for figuring out the lesson. Therefore the more experience that we attain, it is filled with wisdom and understanding. So we become better at making decisions concerning ourselves and others. Experiences that have been received impacts the heart, it is something that stays with the person, in most cases it becomes life changing.

The biblical proof of all that I am saying is found in the book of Proverbs, and it states, " When wisdom enters into the heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul discretion shall preserve thee. WOW!!! This is so awesome, here is the revelation; wisdom is built into every experience as well as understanding which can be interchangeable with knowledge. The bible is saying when this wisdom/experience is received in the heart, and knowledge becomes pleasant to the soul, suggesting that you've learned the lesson of the experience.

Watch this! Discretion shall preserve thee. The word discretion means: the power or right to decide or act according to one's own judgment; freedom of judgment or choice. To preserve means to: keep safe from harm or injury; protect or spare.

So, (Proverbs 2:10-11) has confirmed this revelation on experience, and why it is a necessity for every human being to get as much experience in all things as possible. Simply put every experience intent is to equip ourselves now to prepare us for the future decisions we will make, so when we resist challenges struggles etc. we are at the same time saying we don't want experience, therefore we are bound to make poor decisions, because we have disable the only process which was designed to give us wisdom to decide or judge future events circumstances etc properly.
