CAUSE ME TO KNOW
BY: RAY PRINZING
“Cause me to hear Thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in Thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul to Thee.” Psalm 143:8
We cannot form and fashion a revelation out of our own mind, it has to be born of the Spirit, as He “shall receive of Mine, and shall shew it unto you.” (John 16:14) Hence the prayer remains, “Lord, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days.” (Psalm 39:4) and “cause me to know the way wherein I should walk.”
Perhaps one of the important facts to remember is that while “to every thing there is a time, and a season for every purpose” and God does not skip over parts of His plan, yet that which is to be revealed in fullness in coming days, has its roots in the developments taking place in us today. The inner formations of the Spirit, which are yet quite indefinable, must be wrought in us now, if we would see the manifestations of victory in coming days. There is an intertwining of events, so that we read, “in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed.” (Daniel 2:44) He is not waiting until all the other kings are destroyed, before He sets up His kingdom, it is being established in the hearts of His elect now. Thus we need to know the “measure of our days” now, that we might walk before Him now, so that the foundations being laid in us now, we’ll see the ultimate glories revealed.
Even now while iniquity abounds, His grace is also much more abounding in the hearts of His elect. While the earthly rulers press their claims upon men, in the midst of their years of reign, the God of heaven is setting up His own kingdom, which shall grow until it fills the whole earth. This is not an instant manifestation of total kingdom over all the earth, but the future victory is certainly rooted in the work of God within the hearts of His apprehended ones today.
Lord, cause me to know for today Thy will for me, for in Thee do I trust. Amen
