Direction – A course along which someone or something moves. It’s a piece of information through which you navigate from one position/location to another.
Direction can be referred to as advice or counsel.
It can also be referred to as the management or guidance of someone or something.
Divine direction is a process through which God leads us in the journey of life. It’s a process through which God charts the course of our lives, in order to make us conform to His ultimate will and purpose.
For us to be counted as citizens of the kingdom of heaven, we must yield to God’s leading and do His will (Matt. 7:21).
Remember, the Shepherd is fully responsible for the upkeep of the sheep alone. Is the Lord your Shepherd? Do you belong to His flock?
(My sheep hear My voice…John 10:27)
The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD and He delights in His way. (KJV)
The LORD directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. (NLT) Psalm 37:23

1. God has the perfect blue-print for our lives (Prov. 20:24; Jer. 10:23)
2. Walking in divine guidance ensures divine provision (Psalm 34:10)
3. Stepping out of God’s leading results in destruction (Prov. 14:12; 16:25)
4. Operating outside the will of God reduces all our efforts to vanity (Haggai 1:5-11)
5. Wisdom and understanding are answerable to divine direction (Psalm 119:98-100)

1. Through His Spirit (Acts 10:19-20; 11:12; 16:6; Romans 8:14)
2. Through His Word (1 Samuel 3:21; Amos 3:7; Hebrews 1:1-2)
3. Through dream, vision, trance… (Psalm 89:19; Daniel 2:19)
4. Through circumstances (Deut. 32:9-12; Psalm 66:12)
1. Accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior
2. Believe that God’s ways and thoughts are higher than yours (Isa. 55:8-9)
3. Cry out to the Counsellor! Seek His counsel through prayer. Ask for the manifestation of His will (with a sincere heart), concerning the matter on ground (Luke 22:42; 2 Cor. 12:7-9).
4. Seek the Word of God. Study to show yourself approved unto God (Psalm 119:105; 2 Tim. 2:15)
5. Seek godly counsel from the people of God (Prov. 11:14; 15:22).

One major attribute that cuts across these points is meekness. We must be meek even to qualify for the leading of the Lord (Psalm 25:9).

We need the leading of the Holy Spirit for our daily decisions. We need the Lord to order our steps in life.
Faith is not just limited to believing God to receive from Him; it’s about obeying God and walking in the perfect will of God for our lives. Godly inspired faith involves total dependence on the Holy Spirit for our daily living.
The just shall live by faith…
The life that I live in the flesh, I live through the faith of the Son of God…..
I am that the Lord that teaches you to profit, that leads you in the way that you should go (Isaiah 48:17).

And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left. (Isaiah 30:27)
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you. (Psalm 32:8)
The secret of the LORD is with them that fear Him; and He will show them His covenant. (Psalm 25:14)
Show me Your ways, O LORD; teach me Your paths.
Lead me in Your truth, and teach me: for You are the God of my salvation; on You do I wait all the day. (Psalm 25:4-5).
