Day 1
THE JOURNEY BEGINS

Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

    —Matthew 6:33

The air is pregnant with possibility—can you feel it? Heaven itself is longing to invade the natural realm. Darkness may cover the earth, but God’s glory upon His people is becoming more and more realized, bringing hope to the most hopeless situations. And what is this day that God is unveiling? It is a day of divine encounters, at least for those who will pursue what this revelation is making available. Are you ready to pursue Him?

Point to Ponder

Today is the first day in my quest for more of God’s presence in my life.

Day 2
WISDOM AND REVELATION

That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him.

    —Ephesians 1:17

In your quest for God it’s important to understand that the spirit of wisdom and revelation is not given to make you smarter but to make you more aware of unseen realities. The purpose of the spirit or anointing is to give you wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him. It works not merely to increase your understanding of kingdom principles but also to reveal the King Himself. Presence always wins out over principles. When you encounter His divine presence, transformation occurs that goes beyond the reach of merely good ideas; it is transformation that first takes place within you that you might cause transformation around you. Do you believe that encountering His presence takes priority over understanding kingdom principles?

Point to Ponder

I put everything I know about God aside in order to pursue Him to the fullest and allow Him to transform my life for His glory.

Day 3
GOD’S TREASURE HOUSE OF TRUTH

If you seek [wisdom] as silver and search for her as for hidden treasures; then you will discern the fear of the Lord and discover the knowledge of God.

    —Proverbs 2:4–5

God is opening up His treasure house of truth and releasing it all over mankind in remarkable ways. Like birth pangs signaling the time of delivery, things are being released in revelation knowledge that have been preserved through the ages for this particular hour. In other words, this exponential increase in wisdom and revelation is being precipitated by the day that God is releasing in our time in history. I’m not talking about new books of the Bible or other holy writings. I’m talking about the Holy Spirit unlocking the very Scriptures you hold in your hands. How do you respond to what God reveals to you in the pages of Scripture? Do you believe these treasures are available to you?

Point to Ponder

I put everything I know about God aside in order to pursue Him to the fullest and allow Him to transform my life for His glory.

Day 4
TASTE AND SEE

Taste and see that the Lord is good.

    —Psalm 34:8

The heart to seek God is birthed in us by God Himself. Like all desires, it is not something that can be legislated or forced, but rather it grows within us as we become exposed to God’s nature. He creates an appetite in us for Himself by lavishing us with the reality of His goodness—His irresistible glory. God’s love for people is beyond comprehension and imagination. He is for us, not against us. God is good 100 percent of the time. These realities burn deeply into the hearts of all who simply take the time to behold Him. When was the last time you experienced the reality of His goodness in such a way that your desire to seek God intensified? How did you respond to this desire?

Point to Ponder

I need more of the revelation of God’s goodness to draw me to Him.

Day 5
TRANSFORMED TO HIS IMAGE

But we all, seeing the glory of the Lord with unveiled faces, as in a mirror, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory by the Spirit of the Lord.

    —2 Corinthians 3:18, MEV

Paul describes the place of beholding God as the absolute center of the new covenant we have been brought into. The impulse that drives the life of the believer isn’t the need to perform for God but to commune with Him. Only when we perceive the face of the One in whose image we were made do we come to know who we are and the One for whom we were made. And because of who He is, to behold Him and remain unchanged is impossible. As He infects us with His presence, we are drawn into an ongoing mission by the One who longs for us. This mission is simply the mission to become more and more fit to see Him in His fullness. Does the need to perform for God drive your thinking and behavior at all? Would you say you find your identity in the face of Christ or in what you do?

Point to Ponder

To truly see God is to be changed by Him and to become more like Him.
