Bible Verses About Acknowledging

The Bible is very clear that we are to acknowledge God in all that we do. In the Old Testament, the people of Israel were commanded to acknowledge God with their whole hearts and to put their trust in Him alone. In the New Testament, we are told to acknowledge God in our daily lives.

The Bible tells us that when we acknowledge God, He will direct our paths. Proverbs 3:6 says, “In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” This verse is a promise from God that if we acknowledge Him, He will guide us and help us to live life.


In the book of Luke, Jesus says that we are to acknowledge the gifts that we have been given and to use them to serve others. In 1 Timothy, Paul says that we are to acknowledge the work that God has done in our lives and to give thanks for it. And in Colossians, Paul says that we are to acknowledge the goodness of God and to live with thankful hearts. All of these verses show us that acknowledging the good things in our lives is an important part of being a follower of Christ.

The fool says in his heart,
    “There is no God.”
They are corrupt, their deeds are vile;
    there is no one who does good.

~Psalms 14:1

26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals,and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

27 So God created mankind in his own image,
    in the image of God he created them;
    male and female he created them.

~Genesis 1:26-27

~Acts 10:45-46

14 Does not the very nature of things teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a disgrace to him, 15 but that if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? For long hair is given to her as a covering.

~1 Corinthians 11:14-15

 So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living being”; the last Adam, a life-giving spirit.
