[The Glory Unveiled]
Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, ( Philippians 3:13 )
Most electronic gadgets these days including all smartphones are ran by operating systems that need frequent updating. Compared to phones that need no software updates, smartphones with the need, have higher efficiency and more adaptive to current needs and trends. In the same vein, spiritually we need to update our OS (operating system). In the verse of scripture for our meditation, the apostle Paul impresses that truth in the statement, “forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead”. The truth of God’s word is in layers of revelation and exposure. One man’s level of revelation and exposure is different from another. So that two people will experience the same reality but their interpretations will be different base on their depth of revelation in the word of God. Just as whenever there is a newer version of a software, one needs to update—‘forget’ the former version, we all need to update our spiritual softwares too. We need to have the current revelation of God’s truth at all times. And the agency for the tangibility of this reality in the Believer is the Holy Spirit. He updates us by giving us the current revelation of truth which is always in sync with what God wants to do in the present season. But we have a responsibility to strain for the current “software” of the Spirit. And we strain forward in the secret place, when we have fellowship with the Spirit of truth. Does your revelation of truth need updating?.
Prayer_Bead: Father of all spirits, Lord of all lords, thank you for the constant update of the spirit by your word. Teach me to remain in the secret place until the current revelation is updated into my spirit.
