Most Biblical people who made a lasting mark in Christianity had a point in their lives where they stood at a crossroad. They had to decide to yield to divine intervention at the cost of their own plans or continue on their own path instead. As they yielded to God's purposes, they unknowingly wrote life stories that made a mark on humanity. God graciously gives divine interruptions to His children. He presents them an opportunity to partner with Him in purposes they could never conceive. God doesn't need us to complete His purposes, yet He still chooses to ask us to partner with Him. It's unfathonable. His calling you means that He has chosen you above anyone else to do what He is asking. You are the one He singled out and pinpointed as His partner for a particular project.
