Covenant Season of Divine Direction

Divine direction is divine guidance, when God leads you in all aspects of your life.
In this season we will be learning and understanding (gaining spiritual insights) the power of Divine Direction as per scriptures.
It is your covenant right to be led by God according to Romans 8:14. For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God.
God is seeking to lead and guide you into, and through His will in order to see His purpose worked out in your life.

God wills to lead, guide and direct you. He wants you to experience His guidance all the time for the fulfilment of your destiny.
It’s my prayer for you this season, that God will instruct and guard you as the apple of His eyes, as you journey in this life. He will open your ears to hear His direction in every aspect of your life and you will locate yourself in your God ordained destiny in Jesus Christ name.
By the end of this prophetic season, you will know with certainty, the guiding hand of God on your life in every circumstance and situation. God still guides His children and you are of God`s little children 1 John 4:4.
God has a road map for each and every one of us.

He knows exactly where to take us and the details of your life. Mathew 10:30. He knows the numbers of your hair. Nothing catches Him by surprise.
Jeremiah 29:11 I know the thoughts I have for you, thoughts of peace and not evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Therefore, no matter the situation you are in right now, God will direct you into the steps to take, to accomplish the unfolding of God`s purpose for your life. That is destiny.

For example;
God has called you to be an entrepreneur, wonderful, that`s destiny. But how do you go about it? That is where you need divine direction.
As long as you are on this earth and a believer for that matter, you will never get to a point where you don`t require divine direction. It`s a lifetime demand. Life without God`s guidance is suicidal, a life of continuous struggle and frustrations.

No matter how fast and well equipped you are travelling on the wrong road, you will never arrive at your destination. It does not count the kind of cheer and encouragement you receive along the way, unless you reroute, make a U-turn and take proper route, you will never arrive.

For every destiny to succeed, you need God to tell you what next to do, where to turn and where to focus on at every point.
1 Peter 2:9 affirms that we are a royal priesthood, a peculiar people who are called out to show forth God`s glory. This carries a nobility and royalty that cannot be compared with any post on earth, but there is no physical evidence of dignity and honour that it carries. How can we be serving the Most High and still be living a low life? Lack of direction.
Many have definite and very powerful visions but lack the direction required to accomplish it. Therefore, the vision/ mandate becomes nightmare.

It`s not enough to locate your destiny, you must get the direction on how to get there. Vision sets the pace for direction but direction is what makes vision a reality. Life only gets better by following the pre-ordained plans of God for your destiny.
I pray that you will flourish like a palm tree planted beside rivers of water as you seek out the divine direction n Jesus name.

Why do we need God`s Direction or Guidance?

Often times the decisions we make in this life are based on our assessment which may not be absolutely correct. Everything may appear right
and satisfactory to the eye but at the end of it is frustration and stagnation.
For instance,
a) We rush into open doors only to discover that they were traps in disguise.
b) We have been deceived by the juicy look of certain business deals and have to realize that not all that glitters is gold.

Samson in the book of Judges thought that he has found a wife whereas it was a trap in disguise.
I believe that it is as a result of this Solomon repeats Proverbs 14:12 in chapter 16:25 for double emphasis. There is a way which seems right unto a man but the end thereof are the ways of death.
One of the greatest misfortune that can ever happen to a man is to have an idea of where he is going but lack and idea of how to get there.

1. Limited capacity without God. Jeremiah
10:23 states that, O Lord, I know the way
of man is not in himself. It is not in man who walks to direct his own steps. This means that man is limited in his ability even at his best to choose and direct his steps. He cannot control his destiny. It is not in his power to determine what will happen to him, hence he needs the creator to show him how to move.

2. God`s ways are higher than ours. Isaiah
55:8-9, A man`s thoughts and ways are not God`s so his ways must likewise fall short of God`s perfect plan. God has al ready planned and set our lives on cause, we just need to ask Him to lead us to dis cover and fit in His plan.

3. Our wisdom is foolishness to God.
1 Corinthians 1:25 The foolishness of
God is wiser than human wisdom and the weakness of God is stronger than
human’s strength.Therefore, only the eternal God has the affairs of your life.

He is our creator, knows our abilities, our weaknesses and all the details of our lives.

“Everything may appear rightand satisfactory to the eye but at the end of it is frustration and stagnation.”Pastor Esther Kamba

Requirements for Divine Direction

For every scriptural provision, there is a condition to be met. For you to enjoy divine direction you will to:

1. Unshakable trust in the Lord and His word. The key to unlocking God`s direction is by acknowledging Him in all our ways. Proverbs 3:5, 16:9

2. Good relationship with the Lord. Where you stand determines what you see and how you see it. If you are not
receiving good airwaves from a radio frequency it means that the receiver has a problem and not the transmitter. Therefore, you will have to reposition or position the aerial to have a good reception. This also appears in the Spirit.

Jesus said that let the natural things teach you the things of heaven. Where you stand spiritually determines what you receive and how you receive it. If your stand is poor with the Lord, you will have poor receptions if any. Habakkuk 2:1-2 Habakkuk said I will stand my watch in the tower to see what He will tell me. Reposition your spirit man to have good reception from the Spirit to hear the guidelines. Build up your spirit man. Develop spiritual sensitivity to hear God clearly by fasting and prayer Isaiah 58:11 The quality of your spirit determines the quality of your reception. Weak spirit man weak reception or poor reception of the guidelines that give us direction. Proverbs 20:27, 1 Corinthians2:11. God cannot guide you or direct you without your spirit in line with Him. Free from concerns and distractions.

3. Develop an attitude of humility.

Psalm 25:9 He leads the humble in justice and teaches the humble His way Psalm 138:6 Though the Lord is exalted He regards the humble and invites them into His fellowship. But the proud and the naughty He knows from a distance.
James 4:6
Proverbs 3:34
Psalm 25:12 Who is the man that fears the Lord? He will teach him in the way he should choose. It is your humility
exhibited in the fear of the Lord that qualifies you for divine guidance.
Numbers 12:3
Moses was a very humble man hence in Psalm 103:7, he knew the ways of God and commanded the acts of God in his generation.

4. Praise and worship

Isaiah 30:29-30
1 Kings 3:15

BENEFITS OF DIVINE LEADING

Isaiah 48:21
And they did not thirst when He led them through the desert, He caused the waters to flow from the rock for them.
In what others cannot overcome when God is leading, you get through.
God`s leading has got no regard to circumstances.

Once you secure God`s guidance in every area of your life be it marital, financial, business, it doesn`t matter how the economy looks.
Divine guidance doesn`t matter which country you live. Out of rock situation you come out with victory. Psalm 78:53 He led them safely, so that they did not fear. But the sea destroyed their enemies. When God is leading you there is no fear.
Where you pass through He destroys your enemies.

The Egyptians thought they can follow, not knowing that it was a trap to destroy them.
Intelligence alone does not guarantee that you are making the right choices in life.
There is no way to figure it all out with your mind because it is way beyond your ability.
Divine leading helps your energy to focus on positive, uplifting efforts example Genesis 28:10
Friends may offer you a helping hand along the way but you won`t go far.Divine direction will not steer you in the wrong direction.

How God leads us

Proverbs 3:6 Seek His will in all you do and He shall direct your path. Seek His will in all you do, meaning that in whatever you do it must align with the word of God. Everything you do must be in the word of God. That is the level of God guiding us- through scriptures.

Once you miss it, you may be in the right marriages, business, career or contract but there will be no victory Mathew 1:18-25
Joseph had a natural mind over Mary.

Natural intelligence tells you that when you are engaged and the girl becomes pregnant for someone else you run away. God guided Joseph in a dream.

There are sensitive issues that you can`t look on how it appears physically but on God`s saying. God told him full details in a dream and he obeyed without fear. Later he fulfilled destiny. Psalm 103:7 He made known His ways to Moses and His acts upon Israel He revealed what to do to Moses and when he engaged it he was very great. Exodus 11:3 Moreover, the man Moses was very great in the eyes of Pharaoh and the Egyptians.

What God revealed to Moses is what made him great. He guides us by revelation, He reveals secrets to us.

Romans 1:11

Impartation of spiritual gifts. He guides us through imparting the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
When you carry a gift of discernment you will never go wrong in life. Believers are limited due to being gift less. Spirit of discernment helps you to know which is of God or of the devil.

Be Blessed
