There are some assignments God gives universally to believers, like sharing our faith, caring for those in need, and demonstrating the love of God in our relationships. But he also gives us individual, unique assignments that require close communication and fellowship with Him to understand and complete.
In fact, they require complete dependence on Him to accomplish. And that is really the point of them - God doesn't need me in order to accomplish the things He calls me to do. He could do them just fine on His own. But He offers me the opportunity to join in what He is doing, to have a front row seat and participate in His magnificent work. I just have to remember to follow His direction.
What special assignment has God given you? I'd love to hear about it in the comments below!
