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”

-Jas 1:5

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

build.


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.
