Isaiah chapter 6 verse 8 says; “Whom shall I send? Who will go for us? ”. Then I said, “Here I am, send me”.
All through the Bible we see God’s call given to individuals in various circumstances and how they responded
Moses was a soldier and God called him to lead His people out of Egypt.
David was a shepherd and God called him to rule His people.
Amos was a shepherd too and God called him to be a prophet.
Peter was a fisherman and Jesus called him to leave the nets and follow Him.
Matthew was a tax collector and Jesus called him to leave his office to serve Him fulltime.
Paul was a tent maker and God called him for a global service demanding all his time
Luke was a medical doctors and he joined Paul in his missionary tours.
William Carey, who is called the Father of Modern missions, was a shoemaker and he became a Bible translator
Jesus is calling us to do His Will. Are we responding to Him? Circumstances should not be a hindrance to give response to God’s calling.
