One of the reoccurring themes within Discovering God’s Plan is that of “triangulating” your Authentic Direction… where you want and need to go to be Christ’s hands here on Earth.
So, Divine Guidance is the third pillar of Spirit-Led Success and Spiritual Integrity.
Where some might find this mystifying or confusing, it is actually a very simple idea.
First, look to what you VALUE most—the baseline of every decision you make and every action you take.
Next, create a VISION for what you want to see happen in the future. Big Values demand big Visions… big Visions demand huge Values driving your future. This is the essence of God-based planning.
Finally, create and nurture empowering ROLES big enough to achieve your Visions and live your Values.
Discovering Authentic Direction
Your Direction Then Is Where You and Jesus Want to Walk Together…
This concept is covered at great length in Discovering God’s Plan. In fact, the idea of Authentic Direction is the promise made by God Himself.
Like your cell phone, all you need is to triangulate your signal between 3 towers — the network knows where you are within a few feet.
Jesus is smarter than your cell phone and knows exactly where you are headed… maybe in the right direction… maybe not. Remember, we have free will. He will not force you, so it is up to you to figure this out.
Look at where you are now going. Is it where you want to go?

Jesus’ Promise: Divine Guidance
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” —John 14:6 (KJV)
Why Not Accept His Guidance?
Christ takes an active role in helping you discover the Authentic Direction for your life—so you can master the 4 R’s of living in the abundance afforded by personal excellence: Doing the Right Things, for the Right Reasons, in the Right Way… all at the Right Time.
Do this, you grow in Christ and head your life in the Right Direction!
