Have you ever been driving toward a certain destination and gotten lost? Most of us have experienced the frustration that comes with losing our bearings when trying to get to a particular place. In situations like this, some people will stop at a local gas station and ask someone for directions. Others will keep driving, confident that they will be able to figure out where they are going on their own.

In life, God wants you to know exactly where you’re going. He doesn’t want you to stumble around, unsure of whether the steps you are taking are the right ones. Instead, He desires that you have crystal-clear hearing so you can receive specific instructions regarding the path He wants you to take. In other words, God wants you to stop and ask Him for directions daily!

The prophet Jeremiah, was ordained to be a prophet before he was even born; it was God’s plan for his life (Jeremiah 1:4-10; 29:11). Similarly, you have a God-given mission that God will help you carry out. The key to executing the mission, or vision, God has given you is your ability to receive directions from Him and your willingness to immediately obey what He tells you to do. When you increase your awareness of God’s voice, you position yourself to step right into His perfect will for your life.

Proverbs 6:23 says, “For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life.” God’s directions give light to your vision. They are the steps you must take to accomplish God’s master plan for your life. Your greatest asset is an unbroken connection with God. Through daily fellowship with Him and study of His Word, you empower yourself to recognize His voice and obey Him in even the smallest act. Like pieces of a puzzle, each step you take enables you to see the bigger picture.

You must discover what God desires for you to accomplish in the earth. This means quality time communing with Him and making His Word the final authority in every area of your life. Being born again is a prerequisite to discovering your God-given assignment. Once you accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of your life and begin seeking Him daily, He will begin revealing your purpose to you.

The Holy Spirit is your guide as you walk out the path for your life, so consult Him regularly. Check with Him before making any decisions, and if you don’t have peace in your spirit about something, don’t proceed. On the other hand, if you feel “clearance” from the Holy Spirit to step out on something you believe God has told you to do, and it lines up with His written Word, move forward with confidence knowing that He is backing you up.

The Apostle Paul said, “Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain” (1 Corinthians 9:24). There is a set race for you to run, and God wants you to discover it. Make a concerted effort to yield to His instructions daily. Before long, you will find yourself walking in your divine destiny!
