It surprises many people to find out that you can do whatever you want, when you are seeking the Lord with all your heart. This is because, when we truly seek the Lord, God puts His desires in our hearts. Therefore, being led by our desires is a valid and prominent way to receive direction, IF our hearts are pure. The Lord doesn't usually speak to us from the third-person perspective, but He communicates to us through our spirits. Our spirits speak to us in the first person.
