in all your ways Acknowledge him” [Proverbs 3:6]

I want to dig a little deeper this morning, more than just the a, b, c’s, the simple stuff of childhood.  The root meaning of Acknowledge is to ‘ascertain by seeing’.  To see Christ is the revelation Peter experienced, and because of that revelation he was given the keys to the kingdom.  You didn’t get that answer out of books or from teachers.  My Father in heaven, God himself, let you in on this secret of who I really am.  And, now I’m going to tell you who you are, really are.  “ You will have complete and free access to God’s kingdom keys to open any and every door:”  [Matthew 16:17-19 The Message]

Acknowledging or ‘seeing’ Christ in all our ways is to have the power and authority of the Kingdom of God.  We use the keys to open His storehouse of supply and “…whatever you bind on earth will be bound heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven” [Matthew 16:19]

“The tendency is strong to make the statements of the Bible simpler than God makes them, the reason being that we will not recognize Jesus Christ as the Authority.  It is only when we rely on the Holy Spirit and obey His leadership that the authority of Jesus Christ is recognized.” [Oswald Chambers]

Acknowledge Him today and use the keys to open His storehouse!
