“In all thy ways acknowledge Him!” (Proverbs 3:6)

Proverbs 3 (KJV) 5,6

We have got to stay close to the Lord & follow Him & make sure we’re in His Will. We can’t even do things that look like they’re good & reasonable & common sense unless we’re sure it’s God’s Will! If we’re leaning to our own understanding & forgetting to acknowledge the Lord or listen to the voice of His Spirit to lead & guide us every moment, then we’re apt to fall into one of the Devil’s traps, & it’s dangerous! We can’t guard ourselves from everything, but we can just stay so close to the Lord that He will see that there’s not a moment that’s unguarded!

Resting on the arm of the flesh & natural reasoning is a dangerous thing! (Jeremiah 17:5) Without Jesus we’re nothing! Jesus said, Without Me ye can do nothing!” (John 15:5) – Nothing good! So Lord, help us to be so in the Spirit that we are sensitive to Thy voice & we hear it & we know Thy Will & we hear Thy Word so that we can follow & obey You.

“For thou shalt hear a voice behind thee saying, ‘This is the way, walk ye in it.’” (Isaiah 30:21) Help us, Lord, to mind Thy voice, even though it may seem unreasonable & we may wonder why we should not do as usual. If we have any check at all, Lord, help us to mind it, knowing that You know why!

  1. The text of Isaiah is about trust in God and not as such about trust in Jesus. We always should be very careful not to mix Biblical characters. Jesus is the way to god and in him we should also trust (no doubt about that) and without Jesus his act of giving himself to his heavenly Father as a Lamb for God we would be nothing.

    1. Yes, in the Old Testament it was largely all about God, in the New Testament Jesus always looked to the Father and said to Philip “He that hath seen me hath seen the Father.” And so we understand things better in the New Testament than they did in the old.
