Acknowledge Him

Proverbs 3:6: In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.


In all thy ways acknowledge him. Begin, continue, and end every work, purpose, and device, with God. Earnestly pray for his direction at the commencement; look for his continual support in the progress; and so begin and continue that all may terminate in his glory: and then it will certainly be to thy good; for we never honour God, without serving ourselves. . . . Self-sufficiency and self-dependence have been the ruin of mankind ever since the fall of Adam. The grand sin of the human race is their continual endeavour to live independently of God, i.e., to be without God in the world. True religion consists in considering God the fountain of all good, and expecting all good from him.

Family Bible Notes:

They who feel their need of God*s protection and guidance, and humbly commit themselves to him in the way of duty, shall not be left to perplexity or error. He will mark out their path for them, and make them truly prosperous and useful.

Patrick-Lowth-Whitby-Lowman Commentary:

In all thy undertakings, both private and public, be sensible of his overruling power; observe his laws; and implore his favour and blessing: and he shall guide thee in thy proceedings; and bring them to a happy issue as he in his wisdom sees best for thee.

1 Corinthians 10:31: Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.
