Today’s Promise

February 23, 2022

I Will Make Your Pathway Clear

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

A Clear Pathway

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 we aren’t sure if we should go to the 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.

“Turning to the Lord shouldn’t be your last resort, but your first step in beginning the 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 your 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 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?”

Acknowledge Him

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, 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” is going to make a major 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.

If you will pray for me in finished Praying for Pastors, let me know in the comments below.

    Not surprised by the opposition Billy as we know the evil one does not like prayer, especially as a means to support and encourage pastors. Keep going…

    Thank You Father for Your guidance, protection, and wisdom to complete this important project. May You receive all honor, glory and praise!

    Brother Taylor,

    May The Most High grant you peace, patience, wisdom and understanding to wait on His timing and purpose for this book. One thing we know is this: if it is to be, then it SHALL come to pass. I’m hearing this scripture right now as I type: “…nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done” (Luke 22:42). As we follow The Example, we will arrive at all destinations at just the right time and in the right manner.

    Thank you, brother, for your onsistency over the years to bring forth this Word of encouragement to The Most High’s people. Amen.
