Philippians 3:13 (NET) Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself to have attained this. Instead I am single-minded: Forgetting the things that are behind and reaching out for the things that are ahead

Uche observed that his spiritual fervor and fire seemed to be waning. He no longer could pray as long as he used to and he could no longer walk in the spiritual authority he once commanded. Before it became clear to Uche that he had lost his fire, he used to boast about how many hours he could pray in tongues and how he fasted for Long. 

Uche wondered what was happening to him. He no longer found the ability to pray the way he used to pray. The word of God now seemed "familiar" and "boring". As he kept inquiring of the Lord about what had gone wrong, the Lord made him realize it was because he got to a point where he considered himself to have attained the knowledge of the Lord. Because he had had several encounters with the Lord in dreams and visions, he started feeling as if he had arrived. Unknown to him, this feeling was a manifestation of pride, and God resists the proud.

From today's Bible verse, we see that the great Apostle Paul didn't consider himself to have attained the knowledge of Christ. He still desired to know Him more. This desire is the secret to never-ending and constant growth.

Go into today remembering that we cannot completely know the Lord while we are in this body of flesh, so the false feeling of accomplishment is a trap of the flesh. When the resurrection comes, then we will know [Him] as we are known (1 Corinthians 13:12).

Prayer: Father, help me continually know you more all the days of my life. Amen.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
