Acknowledge Him

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths.

–Proverbs 3:5-6

As I was driving to church early this morning, the sun was just coming up.

I hadn’t actually seen it yet, but I saw beautiful hues of pink on some high clouds as I left my neighborhood.

After traveling about fifteen minutes or so, I was on a road headed south. I wasn’t paying much attention to anything but what was in front of me.

Suddenly, I looked to my left and saw a blazing sunrise in the east.

Such dazzling, blazing light coming through the palm trees and past buildings….I had been driving along without even noticing it.

The Bible tells us to acknowledge God in all our ways and He will make our paths straight.

I think there are times when God is right there with us, wanting us to acknowledge Him, but we aren’t looking.

What do you think?

Rays of Light

I have heard all about you, Lord.
    I am filled with awe by your amazing works.
In this time of our deep need,
    help us again as you did in years gone by.
And in your anger,
    remember your mercy.

 I see God moving across the deserts from Edom,
    the Holy One coming from Mount Paran.
His brilliant splendor fills the heavens,
    and the earth is filled with his praise.
 His coming is as brilliant as the sunrise.
    Rays of light flash from his hands,
    where his awesome power is hidden.

—Habakkuk 3:2-4
