Acknowledging God

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: Proverbs 3:5-8

Proverbs 3 is one of my favorite chapters of Proverbs because of the way the entire chapter lays out and depicts what our relationship with God should look like. Verses 5-8, and particularly verses 5-6, are quoted often as guidelines for having a good and healthy relationship with God. As I took in this stanza, the words "In all your ways acknowledge him" in verse 6 drew my attention. Sadly, the social climate in our country is becoming less and less tolerant of anything to do with God or standing up for godly principles. So the instruction to acknowledge God in all our ways is likely one that will challenge and stretch those who have placed their faith in Christ as we live in and engage with a society that seems determined to turn away from God.

So here are a couple of questions for us to consider. Am I willing to proclaim, like Paul, that "I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ" (see Romans 1:16; Philippians 1:20)? Am I willing to take a stand and speak up for what God says is right, even if it brings ridicule or unfair treatment? What does acknowledging God in all your ways mean and look like for your life?

Acknowledging God in all your ways means for me starting your day with devotion, placing God first and asking him for guidance for all aspects of your day and in all aspects work play home etc for yourself, family friends, church community, government and all people. It means needing God's guidance in "all" of your life. Hallelujah Praise God.

Acknowledging God in all your ways also means seeking to be a peacemaker. In our increasingly "us vs. them" society, we still serve a God who encourages us, as much as it's possible, to live at peace with all people. We can stand up for what we believe without taking up arms in this ongoing culture war.
