Topic: Acknowledge God [Friday January 20, 2017]
In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths. — Proverbs 3:6
It is so easy to start making a plan instead of waiting on God to give us His plan. Sometimes we are so entrenched in our own plans that we don’t even sense the leading of the Holy Spirit. But the proverb says to acknowledge God in all our ways, and that means to care about what He thinks and submit our plans to Him for approval.
Having a plan is not a bad thing, but we can simply say to God each day, “Lord, I have a plan for today, but I acknowledge You in it. And if You don’t approve of any part of it, then I am willing to change and do what You want.” If you truly care about what God desires, He will direct you in the way you should go if any changes need to be made to your plans.
Power Thought: I acknowledge God in all my plans, and He always guides me.
