In All your Ways Acknowledge Him
Despite our many failings, our God is a faithful God. We can trust in him entirely, committing our way to God knowing that he acts for our good (Psalm 37:5). It is only through knowing God's word that we can come to a right understanding of ourselves and the world we live in, rather than from a man-centred view (Proverbs 2:6).

God promises to guide those seeking him, leading them to enternal glory (Psalm 73:24), but will cut off those who forsake his teaching (1 Chronicles 28:9). This does not take away from our responsibility in making God-honouring decisions, but we can trust that we cannot go outwith the protection of God's providence (Genesis 50:20-21, Proverbs 16:33). We know that our lives are not random or planned by capricious fates, but instead that each event is within God's will and will ultimately be worked to our good (Romans 8:28).

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
