Knowing what you want, and how much, is the most important factor in life. It renders the ether certain of the need and its fulfillment. It also enables the Lord God Almighty to satisfy needs fluidly, and to ensure that any related issues are resolved.
Knowing what you want is not necessarily about making a wish list, but rather, it is about examining your heart and mind to discover the hidden motives, and the reasons you were called to be in the earth at this moment in time. The Lord God Almighty is not a God who "hears" your reason for being here, he is a God who helps you to "discover" your reason for being.
