Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets (Amos 3:7).
"You are called to free business people from the Esau life." Those were the words spoken to me years ago by someone God sent into my life. I had been in the midst of trying to understand some catastrophic events that shook my world. Years later I was able to see that God gave this person supernatural insight that revealed god's calling on my life.
God still uses his prophets today to reveal his plans in the lives of his people. I have seen this scripture proved over and over in the lives of people. It is as though God sends out his "scouts" to inform his servants what is ahead for them. Sometimes He does this because He knows the event will require such changes in that person's life that He wants to assure them of His love. I have experienced the Lord using me in this way in the life of other individuals. God did this in the life of Moses. He came to Moses at the burning bush to reveal His purposes for the people of Israel and His call on Moses to free them. The Apostle Paul had Cornelius come to him to let him know God had called him to preach to the gentiles.
Has God placed individuals in your life to speak His plans for you? Are your eyes and ears spiritually sensitive so that you will know this is a messenger of God? Elijah had a servant who could not see or hear with spiritual eyes and ears until Elijah prayed they would be opened. Then, the servant could see the great army of God protecting them. Pray that you might see and hear with the Spirit. He may desire to reveal His purposes and plans through another individual.
