Are You a Navigator?

The preparations of the heart belong to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord. All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the spirits. Commit your works to the Lord, and your thoughts will be established.
Proverbs 16:1-3

Effective leaders practice the Law of Navigation, which says that anyone can steer the ship, but it takes a leader to chart the course. The verses in Proverbs 16 remind leaders to:

  • Check the source of their wisdom
  • Check their motives
  • Check the outcome they are pursuing

Consider five key words to understanding how God helps leaders to navigate their way through life:

  • Process – God’s plan usually unfolds over time. What is He revealing progressively?
  • Purpose – God wants to accomplish His purposes. Why were you created?
  • Potential – God will use your gifts and passion. Does this goal fit who you are?
  • Prioritize – God will ask you to adjust your time and energy. What steps must you take?
  • Proceed – God will eventually require you to act. When should you start?
