Philippians 3:10 “(For my determined purpose is) that I may know Him (that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him, perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of His person more strongly and more clearly), and that I may in that same way come to know the power outflowing from His resurrection (which it exerts over believers), and that I may so share His sufferings as to be continually transformed (in spirit into His likeness…) (AMPC)
Dear Father – That scripture does not always describe me. I so often let other things crowd into my life so that my determination to know you actually becomes lukewarm. Increase my desire to know you more fully and intimately. May I not settle for what I already “know,” but press on to more and more closeness as I faithfully spend time with you.
My Child – Desire increases when additional time is spent thinking about and pursuing the object of your desire. That’s why it’s vital to put Me first. When you seek Me first, I fill you with more of Myself and that, in turn, raises the level of your desire to know Me more. That’s the cycle of growth because I AM your life. Follow this desire to know Me more and you will learn about Me. Then you will have life more abundantly.
Hang onto my hand, child. It’s an exciting ride!
Love you, Abba
