Discussion for Proverbs 3:6

  • MockingBird for verse 6
    As I acknowledge my Lord God in all that I put my hand unto : To recognize and make sure that the way I take will be the best way that He has ordered for me : To acknowledge that if it is the wrong way : To turn around and go the direction that he has mapped out for me.
  • Eva Petrus for verse 6
    Letting God know of your plans planned out for the next day enables you to let God help you in all that you need in this way you are telling him that you trust him and need him in every aspect of your life.
  • This scripture puts all everything into perspective. We are invaded by noise, muchness and hurryness that not acknowledging Him leave us helpless.
  • In the URL that led to this page, I read that "all " means everything. If "all " means everything or in another case of "everybody " then there is a problem with salvation coming to pass. The phrase "for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God ", cannot mean everyone, for if it be so, then, how did the gospel ever come about since everyone or all were sinning?
  • So the day to day decisions we make in life should reflect our trust in Jehovah. When problems arise, we should not despair, panic, or resist Jehovah God guidance.
  • Adekunle olusoji for verse 6
    All God is interested in all aspect of your life. Not just your spiritual life, but your secular as well. Your ways it implies that you must begin a doing, a going, a vision, a purpose or something that is in line with God 's divine agenda for our local community and globally. Then, as we pray to acknowledge him, he directs us. Because you have just started what he has finished.
