Psalm 119.125

Two types of knowledge

“I am Your servant; give me understanding, that I may know Your testimonies” [Psalm 119.125 NASB]

It is good and proper to state, at all times, who we are and whom we belong to. Very often, whether we realise it or not, that at that time, we are openly declaring to the alien powers that, without contradiction, we are God's own private possession, and they are not.

It is possible that God has said something, confirmatory and positive about us to the heavenly powers, the instant we were saved. This is why the witness of the Spirit is vitally important.

As you read the word, do you sometimes feel that God has a word for you, and yet you cannot put your finger on it? This is where the ministry of discernment comes into its own.

There were two ways in which David, like the two disciples on the road to Emmaus, was lacking knowledge. What were they? He needed God's light to dawn on his understanding and, more importantly, he also needed to know by individual and corporate experience that God's word was true.

Once Cleopas and his companion had grasped these two fundamental truths, their lives were never the same again. They understood the gospel from its conception to its consummation [Luke 24:13-32].

This was one reason why God had to take Paul away from His people and His city, and send him into the desert.

It is just possible that God also has His hand on you - and this longing to know more of Him, which is growing in you day-by-day, may be an indication that God is going to draw you closer to Himself for a season, teach you theoretical truths and then in a wider sphere of influence, develop and complete your experience. [David McArdle]
