Philippians 3:10 (KJV) That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death

Clement: why are you not worried about this situation? 

Uche: Don't worry, I'll talk to the Lord about it.

The next day, things changed and it was clear that God had intervened in the situation because Uche had prayed.

Clement wanted to know why Uche's prayer was answered so soon while he had been praying(and worrying) about the matter for several days but nothing changed.

Clement: I had been praying about this situation for weeks and nothing changed. You just showed up and said you would talk to the Lord and everything changed.

Uche: I was not praying a religious prayer but I was talking to someone I know personally. That's what made the difference.
Every believer has the opportunity to know the Lord personally, it's just many do not try to know Him. 
After we believe in the Lord Jesus, we are brought into the privilege of knowing Him. But whether or not we would truly know Him depends on if we seek to know Him. Jesus is a person whose voice we can know. He is real and living. Just like with everyone you get to know, you have to give time to [seeking] Him. Give time to talking with Him and learning His ways.

When Apostle Paul wrote today's Bible verse, he had already believed for many years, but he desired to know the Lord more. After believing, the first step to knowing the Lord is a desire to know Him (see Phil 3:10). Those who have no such desire do not really get to know the Lord.

Go into today remembering that when you know the Lord, prayers would cease to be a monotonous chore and would become a conversation with your loving Father.

Prayer: Lord, reveal yourself to me. I want to know you more than I know any other person. Amen. 
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
