Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. (Proverbs 3:5-6)
When you acknowledge Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and that He is the very source of your life, you then allow Him to move freely through your life, desires, and needs. When you acknowledge Him, give Him all the Glory for what He promised in His Word to do for you! Psalm 103:1-4 states,
Bless the LORD, O my soul;
And all that is within me, bless His holy name!
Bless the LORD, O my soul,
And forget not all His benefits:
Who forgives all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases,
Who redeems your life from destruction,
Who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies.
The Lord wants you to proclaim and acknowledge to all of existence that He is your healer, provider and your very source of life itself. He wants you to glory in Him. If you do not acknowledge Him, then the very miracles He does someone will take the credit for them. Then the people will put their eyes on people or a “system” instead of the Lord Jesus Christ. When He is acknowledged, all of existence will look up to Him and give Him the Glory for what He has done and proclaim Him as the Lord over all the earth! When you pray in the name of Jesus, you are acknowledging and proclaiming that He is your Lord and the answer to all of your needs!
If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.
Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.
. . . looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me.
