When God is calling you

divine call

When God personally calls a particular human to do something particular in the visible world.

How do you recognize that God calls you? One symptom is the feeling that this is rather a call from “outside” than “my own choice or decision”.

How to be sure that it is God who called, and not some evil spirit, or my own vanity? Answer: You can’t be 100% sure. In simple situations you can discern afterwards whether this was God. In other cases it can take generations before the people after you can tell this. So you should always remain vigilant and humble, listen to the reactions of other people. On the other hand you need to be resistant to advice.
