acknowledge: to know or recognize
I am supposed to always acknowledge the Lord, but I don’t always acknowledge him. For most of my life, I’ve been making decisions without consulting Him first. I’ve sought counsel from everyone’s mouth except His mouth.
I’ve never asked the Lord,
Who do You want me to help today?
Who do You want me to marry?
What is the career/business You’ve chosen for me?
Where do You want me to live?
What car do You want me to drive?
What do You want me to wear today?
And do you know why I never asked those questions?
Because I was afraid of the answer.
I was afraid that He wouldn’t pick what I picked.
I was afraid that I wouldn’t like what He loved.
Oftentimes, I don’t think about what He wants. I only think about what I want.
My path goes in circle, but His path leads to success.
To acknowledge God means you recognize that you don’t know it all. You recognize that you need Him. You recognize that you can’t live without Him. You recognize that He owns you and you belong to Him. You recognize that your body is now His body.
Lord, forgive me for not acknowledging You in every decision I make and forgive me for not trusting You with all of my heart.
In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths (Proverbs 3:6).
