Apostle Grace Lubega
Matthew 6:32-33 (MSG); People who don’t know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.
If you desire to experience very deep intimacy with God, you must learn to detach yourself from your personal needs when you are before God in prayer.
Indeed you may be struggling financially and in need of a job, you may be having issues in a relationship, or your child may be suffering from affliction.
God knows all of that.
But when you get into the presence of God, you are with the All-Sufficient One. How can you be conscious of any lack or need?
The man who can divorce himself from need and still seek God purely to know Him for who He is, is one who has understood the mystery of faith and entered into true rest.
In our theme scripture, the Bible reveals that those that do not know God fuss over certain needs. Inversely, it implies that those who know God or desire to know Him more do not get into their closets with a long list of needs.
A man who knows God or wants to know Him enters God’s presence with his heart and not a list of God-to dos. His primary need is to understand how he can give his entire heart to God; how to be broken and how to die to his flesh so that he may live unto God.

GOLDEN NUGGET: A man who knows God or wants to know Him enters God’s presence with his heart and not a list of God-to dos. His primary need is to understand how he can give his entire heart to God; how to be broken and how to die to his flesh so that he may live unto God.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. My Lord, I want to know You more. I choose to seek You, not for what You can do but in response to what You have already done. You are the centre of my life and the beginning and end of my entire existence. I am continually conscious of this reality, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
