Holy Dissatisfaction

Yahweh has shown us in His Word that His sons/daughters are expected to call upon Him and know the breadth, length, depth and height of Him (Eph.4:18). We are also expected to embrace the provision of our Lord (Eph.4:12) that we might receive “perfecting” [completing] and come “unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ” (Eph.4:13). That large mouthful of descriptive words does not leave room for maintaining a present level of acceptableness and biding our time until we can get some relief at the coming of the Lord. In Paul’s writings we find a great example of a holy dissatisfaction. Phil.3:12,Amp—“NOT that I have now attained, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to lay hold of (grasp) and make my own, that for which Christ Jesus (the Messiah) has laid hold of me…”  In the ensuing verses he adds terms like “straining” “reaching forward” and “pressing”. There are levels and potential awaiting us.
