I find it easier to determine direction in some areas in the world than others. In Denver, the mountains are west. In Virginia Beach, the Atlantic Ocean is east.
Other areas make it challenging to gain a sense of direction. Without some geographical marker, identifying north from south or east from west is nearly impossible.
Pilots use IFR (Instrument Flying Rules). IFR relies on the plane’s instruments instead of one’s senses. Certain conditions can create a false sense of direction causing pilot error.
Leaders have the task of providing direction for others. They must use the right instrument.
God’s word is the only instrument needed if we are to provide true spiritual direction.
