Know God is With You

In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:6 
Develop the habit of acknowledging God in all your ways and He will direct your steps.  (Joyce Meyers)

Develop the habit- repeatedly do this- it doesn’t come by itself. Practice this and think about it, make acknowledging God a routine so it comes naturally and automatically in all you do.

Know the Lord, recognize and realize His power and wisdom in all you do. We shouldn’t just run to Him in a crisis, but we have to realize His goodness in everything, everywhere we are- daily, moment by moment. Know He is good at all times. Have knowledge of His presence every second, keep an on going conversation with the Lord and he will direct your path. Our Heavenly Father shows us every step to take, His Holy Spirit guides us His way, the righteous way.

This reminds me of a child playing and stepping on top of his daddy’s feet. The father has the little hands in his and leads the young one around the room. They are stepping together, the fathers feet lifting the child’s foot every step of the way, one by one. The child is not in the least bit worried of where he is going because he knows he is safe in his fathers hands. He doesn’t even look to the right or left, only to his fathers eyes. The little one knows his father would never lead him to harm.

The only place God will ever lead us to is good. His plans for us are for good and not evil, a plan for a hope and a future. He makes our paths straight. There are no stumbling blocks to climb over on His path.

Your own ears will hear him. Right behind you a voice will say, "This is the way you should go," whether to the right or to the left. Isaiah 30:21

A person plans his way, but the LORD directs his steps. Proverbs 16:9
