Proverbs 3:6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.
“In all our ways”, even when we go through challenges and we feel like we are walking through hedges of thorns and over sharp rocks and stones, we must acknowledge God.
Then God encourages us… if we acknowledge God in all our ways, he promises us that, “He will direct our paths”. If we put ourselves under God’s divine direction we can only benefit from it. God will give us wisdom for our path, and as we faithfully follow the pillar of cloud and fire like in the Old Testament, it may sometimes feel like God is leading us about, but as we follow His guidance He takes us the precise way and this will bring us to the promise land.
From the Message Bible:
Trust GOD from the bottom of your heart;
don’t try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen for GOD’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go;
he’s the one who will keep you on track.
