Ask God?

It is my business to observe ideas from ancient times to the present, and I don't wish to insult the good and decent people who enjoy the preaching from the Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove, California. Broadcast on the Trinity Broadcasting Network. A young and smiling preache rthere goes on for while with the message: "Ask God what he wants for you." He says nothing about how God answers the questioner, which strikes me as preaching an incomplete message. Someone with my perspective has to ask who among us has ability to know what God is thinking. And without this ability how can we know what God is telling us. What really happens is we continually respond to events around us, and our response involves choice – choice also if it's to literally follow someone or to follow the advice of someone in the real world whom we see or can really talk with.
