Obedience to the call of God must be wholehearted. That is, we can lay down no conditions, withhold no part of ourselves from Him.
“Show me the way that I must take; to thee I offer all my heart” (Ps. 143:8).
It is right and proper to ask for the Lord’s clear direction about what to do, but it does not make sense to ask it if we offer only some of our heart. God will open a way for us when we open our hearts to Him.
