The Old Testament provides numerous instances of God calling.  On some occasions, He called some to Himself with no immediate assignment … For instance, He initially called Abram with no specific service attached except to go where He led, and promised to bless him greatly.

(M. David Sills, The Missionary Call: Find Your Place in God’s Plan for the World, p. 51)

    Thanks for sharing. When I read this, the first thing that popped in my mind was “except to go” and ‘accept His sovreignity’ – both of which require a faith that comes only from Him.

    thank God (really) that we aren’t left to generate that kind of faith ourselves … :]
