TIME FOR A LITTLE ACKNOWLEDGMENT


A little instruction is essential for proper conduct in all endeavors. When it comes to living the Christian life it is no exception. The question is can you follow the rules or will you ignore what is plain and understood.

GOD laid it out for Solomon;

1 Chronicles 28:9 And Solomon, my son, learn to know the God of your ancestors intimately. Worship and serve him with your whole heart and a willing mind. For the LORD sees every heart and knows every plan and thought. If you seek him, you will find him. But if you forsake him, he will reject you forever.

I think it safe to say what GOD told Solomon can apply to us all.

Proverbs 3:6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight.

Have you ever thought; maybe I won't acknowledge HIM in this way and then proceeded to sin?

Good old fashioned sinning comes in two packages, one is something you do once either on purpose or inadvertently; the other is where it becomes your life style or living in sin.

It isn't limited to shack-ups but includes all of the things you might do on a continuing basis. This type of sinning creates its own comfort zone and seems so natural but yet, it is unacceptable to GOD.

Crying out yes; but I’m only human will only bring the reminder; yes you are human, but not only human, you are also spiritual and don’t you forget that.

The way you live is your ways, and the world judges the Christian faith by our ways.

Proverbs 3:6 In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.

These straight paths will still the adversary’s voice of condemnation.

Philemon 1:6 That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.

Perhaps we haven’t discovered every good thing in us in Christ and that is the reason we have trouble acknowledging Him in all our ways.

Paul said; being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. What ever the case may be, let the words of the song “Higher ground,” be our theme.

"I’m pressing on the upward way, New heights I’m gaining every day;
Still praying as I’m onward bound, “Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.”
