Knowing God’s will for our lives gives us focus and direction, but we do not find it by accident; we must be intentional and deliberate in discovering this. Making a commitment in our hearts to do this allows Him to begin specifically guiding and directing us; He will never let it be a mystery. God reveals His specific purpose for us by sending the right people and using them to speak into our lives. This spares us from letting the trials and difficulties we encounter determine what direction we take in life. God wants illumination for us so that we can grasp and comprehend His will. Understanding comes sooner rather than later when we are sensitive enough to His prompting to respond quickly. Yielding ourselves to God allows Him to anoint us with our own unique assignment and calling.
