“In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” Proverbs 3:6
Acknowledge: 1. accept or admit the existence or truth of. 2. (of a body of opinion) recognize the fact or importance or quality of.
Now, I’m sure that some of you read this scripture the way I used to…”In some of thy ways…” And if you do, you’re reading it VERY incorrectly. I know you’re intelligent and that you really didn’t read it that way, but your actions might. God wants us to “acknowledge” Him in everything that we do in every decision that we make. Back to “ME” reading it incorrectly…I used to ONLY ask for God’s input on certain things…like if I needed something or if I wanted a particular thing to be blessed. Now, I’m sure it was to teach me a valuable lesson, but, He blessed those things. God blessed EXACTLY what I asked Him to bless. Like, the stuff that I did “on my own” would end up so off…awful…terrible…uneven…and the stuff that I prayed for God’s hand to be in, would be indescribably wonderful.
I’ll admit, the reason that I didn’t ask or “acknowledge” God in MANY things, is because, frankly (why frankly?…why not bobly or something?
When I FINALLY decided to STOP playing games and get REAL with God…when I gave up running FROM Him and decided to run TO Him…He allowed me to remember these times and caused me to do side by side comparisons of the two outcomes, His and mine. And He showed me, in EVERYTHING…even down to my grades in college (different blog post, we’ll get to that one day soon…bleh)…that His ways are ALWAYS better than mine. But He allowed me to see just how much of an impact He has, even on the small things. So, I learned to ask, to acknowledge God in EVERYTHING that I do. I even ask God what I should wear each day…I know it sounds kinda crazy, but I do. Some days, I don’t, and I am in my closet for hours trying to figure out if I want to go with black or brown…if I should wear long sleeves or short sleeves with a jacket…ESPECIALLY on Sundays.
So, because I know, I ask…suggest…plead with you to just ask Him…acknowledge Him, in all of your decisions. It’ll bless ya!
