Proverbs 3:6 (ESV)
In all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make straight your paths.
In every area of our life we need focus on God and leave it to Him. He has your back.
In life there are so many paths to choose. Some people chose the path of college, others go to the armed forces. Some go to a professional school to learn a trade, while others stay home and work. Whatever the case, these are all paths that, right or wrong, people have chosen to walk. And like all paths, they sometimes make unexpected twists and turns along the way. Solomon is teaching that as children of God, we must acknowledge Him. This means we must really get to know God. Once we do, then He will make our paths straight. This really means that God will guide in the ways that we are to go, and help us along the way. The key, however, is that we have to acknowledge God in ALL of our ways, not just the areas we feel comfortable. So, not just in Church on Sunday, or during Bible Study, but in every place including at school, work, the mall, everywhere. Then, God will make our ways straight, which is another way of saying God will make our lives better, and help us out. I don't know about you, but help from God is something I always want.
Today, as you walk your path, look at the areas where you're not acknowledging God. For just one day, switch up and acknowledge God in those areas. If that works, then do it again tomorrow, and the next day, and next week, and on and on...
Dear Lord, help us to acknowledge You in every area of our life. God help us to allow You to make our paths straight. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
