How to Survive on
the Mission Field:
Is God Calling?
Written by Dale Pugh
Jesus taught his disciples (and us) to
pray for God’s will to be done “on earth
as it is in heaven” (Mat 6:10). This means
that we can pray for, and receive, God’s
will in our lives.
“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of
God, who gives to all liberally and without
reproach, and it will be given to him”
There are only three voices that can
speak to you: God, the devil and human
reasoning. If you think you are called to
serve as a missionary, I suggest you
spend time in prayer to hear from the
Lord. Set aside your own thoughts and
human wisdom by saying, “not my will
but yours be done, Lord.” Then, in Jesus’
name, bind the voice of the enemy from
speaking to you. Say like Samuel of old,
“speak Lord, your servant is listening.”
You may hear a word in your inner man,
or you may get the name of a country or
people group He is calling you to serve. It
varies for each person, but I can say for
sure that God’s word is true—if you ask
for wisdom, He will give it.
God wants you to know His will for
your life! The Holy Spirit will direct your
life as you pray.
The number-one reason
missionaries leave the field is that
they are not exactly sure what God
has called them to or they do not
have clear instructions once they
get there. In this post, we will look
at what the Bible says about being
called of God to a certain task.
Making your calling and election
sure is very important. In fact, your
whole missionary experience must
be based on the knowledge that
God called you to the work.
Anything less than a sure call will
open the door for failure.
“Wherefore the rather, brethren, give
diligence to make your calling and
election sure: for if ye do these things,
ye shall never fall.”
-2 Pet 1:10 KJV
The key word in this verse
is diligence. Being diligent means
you will be thorough and
persistent. Once you know what
God has called you to do, your
assurance will serve as a solid
foundation of faith on which to
LEAVE THE FIELD IS
THAT THEY ARE NOT
EXACTLY SURE WHAT
GOD HAS CALLED
THEM TO OR THEY DO
NOT HAVE CLEAR
THEY GET THERE.
