“In all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” (Proverbs 3:6)
What a great promise. A straight path, true, accurate, full of purpose and direction with a sense of accomplishment. The required condition is “surrender”. Giving it all to God is a constant state not a onetime event.
Particularly in business where we are making decisions constantly and busy in a rapidly changing environment. Pause; take a moment, and submit your situation to God. You will be surprised how straight that path can be.
Quick Prayer. “I submit all I am doing to you Lord.” Amen
