Ever wonder why you’ve never stayed in a hotel room on the 13th floor? The answer is simple: The floor doesn’t “exist.”
Some hotels skip the number 13 and go straight to 14 when numbering floors. This is true for other tall buildings as well. According to an article in USA Today, Otis, the world's leading manufacturer of elevators, reported that 85% of elevator panels skip the number 13.
But, as rational thought will dictate, hotels and buildings higher than 12 floors of course have a 13th floor, however, they do away with it by simply renaming it something else. In other words, though a 13th floor exists, it’s not always seen or noticed.
I think faith is the 13th Floor. We don’t see it, but we know it’s there. And it to be seen, it needs to be accessed. We all know of faith, but to really to know faith, must experience faith. For faith is not only where we begin to follow Jesus, but faith is how we grow forward in that journey with Him.
This month, would you step onto the “13th Floor” as we walk together in this new series on faith.
Heavenly Father give me the wisdom to HOLD my words until I am certain they are in the center of Your heart. Holy Spirit empower me to GUARD my words so I never have to be embarrassed when they are brought into Your light. Jesus, REFINE my words until they honor You, reflect your beauty, and become uplifting to the people around me. #13thFloorPrayer #13thFloor
