Only God knows our path

Every matter has a particular path as a means for the believer to not only escape but to obtain victory and guaranteed success.

A path is not only defined as a way by which people or animals walk, but more importantly defined as a course of action. This definition is crucial to note, because it is about to be made clear to us as to whom we must acknowledge in order to discover our path. In Proverbs 3:6 it reads, “IN ALL THY WAYS ACKNOWLEDGE HIM (GOD) AND HE SHALL DIRECT OUR PATH”. Even though we quote this scripture over and over again, I doubt strongly very few of us grab a hold of its revelatory understanding.

 The truth is, in order to discover our way out of those seemingly hopeless, dark and weary situations the key is we must acknowledge God in whatever it maybe that have us imprisoned. This is key as it relates to our way out.

The word acknowledge, means to notice, recognize or be aware of something. In this scripture we are being asked to recognize or be aware of God as a prerequisite to discovering our path out of our dilemmas. isn't it amazing when we receive bad news how we slip into depression or confusion and immediately forgetting about God, who is the beginning and end of all things? I found this scripture's revelation to be obvious when carefully meditating on it, but easily missed when just quoting it. People of God, God want to lead and guide you out of that frustrating situation that has plagued you for years.

However you have yet to complete the prerequisite and that is, recognizing him as God and Lord of your situation in spite of its apparent hopelessness. In recognizing him as God in our situations, two things occur and they are: 1) your spiritual eyes are open and 2) you become enlighten with wisdom that was always there, but the opening of your spiritual eyes illuminated the hidden wisdom that was always there, but has now been revealed to highlight the path that was carved out for you before the foundation of the world, Eph. 1:4. God says, “I will go before thee and make the crooked places straight. I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut asunder the gates of brass, AND I WILL GIVE THEE THE TREASURES OF DARKNESS, AND HIDDEN RICHES OF SECRET PLACES”, Isa. 45:2-3.

Folks, yes you are in a dark place right now, but it is only as dark based on your absence of not acknowledging God in your situation. Please, begin to recognize God in your matter so that he can reveal the treasures of your dark situations and unveil the hidden riches of secret places in an effort to give you victory.

Heavenly Father, I am thankful that you have etched out our paths before the foundation of the world. Thank you Father that you created our end from our beginning, therefore you are fully aware of every path that leads to victory and freedom for us. Help us to acknowledge you in all our way so that you will direct us to that pre-ordained path that only you know of. We ask these things in the matchless name of your son Jesus Christ. Amen!
