Apostle Grace Lubega
Philippians 3:12(KJV); Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.
Somewhere in this world, a Christian is seeking God day and night for a job. He wants to be hired by men but does not have the slightest idea why God put him on the earth.
A Christian woman has spent days on a mountain top in a long fast, seeking God for a husband but has no clue as to what Christ requires from her.
Paul in our theme scripture, regardless of the great things he had done in the gospel could say he has not attained and seeks to apprehend what Christ apprehended him for.
Before God gives you that job, why not seek Him for why He called you?
Before He gives you a spouse, why not seek the revelation of the Great Mystery, Christ and the Church and your part in it?
God is inviting you to a higher dimension of prayer. This place is beyond your needs. It is where you understand the high calling in Christ Jesus(Philippians 3:14). As you do, the things you need shall follow and be added unto you.

GOLDEN NUGGET: God is inviting you to a higher dimension of prayer. This place is beyond your needs. It is where you understand the high calling in Christ Jesus. As you do, the things you need shall follow and be added unto you.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. I hear you say, ‘Come up thither.’ I am elevated in my prayer life, to seek things above where Christ is. My life of prayer is transcending the ordinary, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
