Experiencing God

From Experiencing God Day-by-Day by Henry T. Blackaby and Richard Blackaby:

"And the angel of the Lord appeared to him from the midst of a burning bush..." Exodus 3:2

"If you have not experienced God's power at work in and through your life, do not settle for a secondhand knowledge ...Don't discount the power of God in Scripture just because you haven't experienced it. Bring your experience up to the standard of Scripture; never reduce Scripture to the level of you experience."

"You can be in the midst of a common moment, only this time the activity is filled with the presence of God. ... God usually speaks out of the ordinary experience of life."

These comments sound Quakerly to me ... and also flip our natural way of thinking, so that we and our ordinary experiences are subordinate to a vibrant spiritual realm. Do you agree?
