Welcome to Day 1 of the A-Z Blogging Challenge for 2014! So happy to have you with me!
I’m so excited to be embarking once again on this journey. Last year’s A-Z can be found in the menu above… or by clicking >here<!
So without further ado – lets kick this bad boy off.
A is for Acknowledge
The dictionary defines it as: accept or admit the existence or truth of.
The Bible says a lot about acknowledging Him:Proverbs 3: 6 “In all of thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths.”
Luke 12:8 “I tell you, whoever publicly acknowledges me before others, the Son of Man will also acknowledge before the angels of God.
Matthew 10: 32 “Everyone who acknowledges me publicly here on earth, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven.
So, what does it mean to acknowledge Him?
Today, for those of us living in the 21st century in the USA, it’s a lot easier to acknowledge Him than it has ever been. We’re not persecuted for our beliefs nearly as much here as those in other countries, or those who came before us.
We are however surrounded by the temptation to deny him at every opportunity because we fear persecution. We’re afraid of what others might think. We don’t want our friends to think we’re one of those crazy “Jesus Freaks”.
But, He plainly tells us – if we deny Him here on earth before men… He will deny us in Heaven before His Father… Our Heavenly Father… God will spew us out of His mouth.
Acknowledging Him can be as simple as thanking Him for everything you have. Acknowledging Him can be as easy as saying “God is the reason this is successful”. Give Him credit where credit is due – in every single aspect of your life.
Be thankful for all you have, pray without ceasing, and remember He is the reason you have all that you have, and are all that you are.
Happy A Day! 🙂
