Many people give lip-service to God about wanting to know their purpose until, of course, they are asked to perform an assignment. It is usually an inner voice that is clear and audible to the recipient that cannot be ignored. Rather, this voice gives a Kingdom instruction which requires a specific answer of Yes. 

In Matthew 7:21 Jesus is quoted as saying "Not everyone who calls out to me, 'Lord! Lord!' will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Only those who actually do the will of my Father in heaven will enter.” That’s because He knew that God, Our Father, is always attempting to instruct us on His will for us. But our general response—assuming we do respond at all—has been to either say “No” by our actions, or “But Lord!,” which in the eyes of God is far worse.

Better yet, why wait to be asked? Why not ask Father to tell you His will? It is always better to be proactive with God, which shows that you are actively seeking His will for your life and—ironically, His first assignment for us all! (Mt. 6:33)
