God is sovereign rule of the universe. He does not invite you to set magnificent goals and then pray that he will help you achieve them.
He already has His own agenda when He approaches you. His desire is to get you from where you are to where He is working.
He leads you from being self centered to God centered. When God reveals to you where He is working that become His invitation to join him in His activity.
When God reveals His work to you that becomes the time to respond.
