Faith is stronger than experience—unfortunately, faith is not as cheap as experience
Experience is really valuable in the world because it is used to approach many situations and solve many problems—but only to a certain extent that faith can actually do better than, and even surpass. Experience is based on what the five human senses can perceive; it is the observation of physical facts as a source of knowledge and a product of the past; it is therefore limited to, and controlled by incidences that have already happened.
Despite the fact that experience is useful in making decisions and judgments about the future, it is vital to note and always remember that any significant measurement of growth, development and success will require that experience submits itself to one of the most powerful forces which is known as “faith”.
It is quite unfortunate that over the ages, past unfortunate experiences have made many intelligent and highly promising people to become frustrated and preoccupied with thoughts of fear and failure, simply because they were too afraid to venture into the higher corridors of great possibilities.
Experience is useful to a great extent, but not useful enough to determine the course of our lives. Experience shouldn’t be allowed to place limits on our lives; rather, it should be placed side by side with faith in order to create a better life for each of us. Experience should be used as a tool; not as a life-determining factor.
For most of us, the experience of driving a car has conditioned us to drive a car and monitor it religiously because of the speed limits established and imposed by the law or society. Therefore, most of us have become subject to driving at 60 miles per hour. However, the fact that most of us have been driving at 60 miles per hour for several years doesn’t cancel our automobiles’ capacities to travel at higher speeds between 100 and 180 miles per hour.
In summary, experience cannot cancel inner potentials or capacities. The high speed capacity of a car is determined by the capacity it was designed to achieve; this is by virtue of its manufacturer, and doesn’t depend on how slow we have become conditioned to using cars.
Experience (past and present) can never cancel your inner unlimited potential
The narrative about the car is also applicable to our lives. It is true that experience is the sum total of all the things we have been through; the decisions we have made; the people we have met, the places we have been to; the things we have learned, etc.—every person is actually a walking manuscript of history.
But regardless of the things we have experienced and become accustomed to, life doesn’t always have to depend on the essence of what we have been through—which is based on physical experience. In many instances, we don’t have to let our past to determine the quality of our future. Remember that your ability is never, and should never be limited to your experience.
The world is filled with so many people who are capable of accomplishing great deeds at a GOD-given design speed of 180 miles per hour, but they have settled for 60 miles per hour. Don’t follow that trend; don’t allow your past experiences limit your ever-green inner capacity.
Learn from the past, and be grateful for it, but note that you can achieve greater deeds if you have faith and follow the signposts established of the Creator who declared through his special envoy: “If you can believe, all things are possible to them that believe”—Mark 9:23.
