Kind of wondering about this since its used alot on the board and among Christians in general. As our pastor pointed out some people have been literally sitting and waiting on God to call them to do something for years...
He was giving example of people asked to serve in church saying well if God calls me to do that I will...and they don't do anything at all.
And some think if God has called us to do something 'doors will open' and the 'path is made easy' for us to do that thing...yet if we read just the story of Joseph in the bible, clearly his path was far from easy and most of it was totally out of his control...yet as the bible says, 'God was with him'. (one example of many in his story: Genesis: 39:21 But the Lord was with Joseph in the prison and showed him his faithful love.
So I am wondering...what is the scriptural support on saying 'God calls us' to do a certain thing?
