In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
Have you ever needed clarity? Ever felt like you needed God’s help in making a big decision?
We all need God’s direction in our life. Every day we face decisions where we simply don’t know what to do. We come to a fork in the road, and we aren’t sure if we should go right or left. That’s when many people think about asking for God’s direction and leadership. However, God is not our personal GPS. We can’t just turn Him on for guidance, then turn Him off when we arrive safely.
He must not be the last resort when we are lost, but the first step when we begin our journey.
Most of God’s promises are conditional. Before you can secure the promise, you must meet the condition.Before God can lead you, you must acknowledge Him.
When you acknowledge God in all our ways, you are saying, “God, today you are in control. All my goals, desires, and hopes are in your hands. Today, I set my life before you to use as You wish.”
Sometimes we ask God for direction but never ask if this is where He wants us to go? Having clear directions to the wrong location is a recipe for disaster. We should be asking, “God, where do you want me to go?” and “How do I get there?”
When we acknowledge Him, He promises to give direction and lead us down a straight path.
With God’s leadership, you have clarity and direction. But God promises more than just knowing which way to go. He promises to make your path straight.
When you acknowledge God in all your ways, he clears the path for you, making it straight and smooth. He removes every obstacle and hazard. It’s the picture of someone cutting a clear and straight path through a dark and dangerous jungle.
As you acknowledge Him, He clears the path, removes the obstacles, and helps you avoid any detours. He makes your path straight.
Look at that promise again.
In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. – Proverbs 3:6
Make these confessions.
As I acknowledge the Lord, He shows me the way to go.
He gives me direction and clarity.
He removes every obstacle.
He makes my path straight and clear.
He leads me in every decision I make.
In Jesus Name,
Remember, God always leads those who submit their lives to Him.
