Today’s Promise

February 21, 2024

God Will Make Your Path Clear

In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
Proverbs 3:6

A Clear Path

Have you ever needed clarity? Ever felt like you needed God’s help in making a big decision? Today’s promise is about how God leads you in the right direction.

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 aren’t sure if we should go to the right or left. That’s when many people think about asking God for direction and leadership. However, God is not our personal GPS. We can’t just turn Him on for guidance and then turn Him off when we arrive safely.

Not Your Last Resort

Turning to the Lord shouldn’t be your last resort but your first step in beginning your journey.

Most of God’s promises are conditional. Before you can secure the promise, you must meet His condition. Before God can lead you, you must acknowledge Him.

When you acknowledge God in all your ways, you say, “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.”

A Recipe for Disaster

Sometimes, we ask God for direction without having asked Him if this is where He wants us to go. Having clear directions to the wrong location is a recipe for disaster. We should ask, “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.

God Clear Your Path

When you acknowledge God in all your ways, He clears the path, 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.
  • When I ask, God gives me direction and clarity.
  • He removes every obstacle.
  • He makes my path straight and clear.

In Jesus’ Name,

Remember, before God can lead you, you must submit your life to Him. When you trust in Him, he clears the path before you.

I want to ask for your prayers regarding a book I have been working on for several months. It seems like every time I begin working on the book, I face difficulty. I believe this book, “Praying for Pastors” will make a significant difference in the lives of pastors around the country. Because of this, I face a spiritual battle every time I sit down to write. Please pray for guidance, protection, and wisdom as I work to finish the book. Join me in asking God to use it to encourage and empower pastors by mobilizing their congregations to pray for them. Thank you in advance for your prayer support.
