“In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” (Proverbs 3:6, NASB)
If it is true that we make trouble for ourselves because, as J. B. Phillips titled his classic book, “Your God is Too Small”; the same might also be said because we think some matters of our life are too small for our heavenly Father’s attention.
We ought to accept the biblical challenge to acknowledge God in everything — large and small — whether in decisions or in giving thanks.
Through the Holy Spirit — Whom Jesus Himself referred to as the “Helper” — we have a companion who knows well the path; we have an intercessor who knows the mind of God; we have an energizer to sustain us; a teacher to educate us.
However, the Helper helps only by invitation. If we do not have, it is only because we have not asked. – Luther
