In missions and in life it is so important to know our calling. In the movie “City Slickers” the New York want-to-be cowboys are vacationing at a ranch out west. When they get caught of in a speedy stampede and can barely stay on their horses one character says “I don’t know where we are going, but we are making good time.”
Whether you are on the mission field, a sender or a prayer partner the question is… Have you taken the time for God to search your heart out and give you direction, vision and your calling?
Of course this is a process and many times when we seek God’s will he answers maybe. George Sweeting said, “It is easier to mover a moving car than a parked one.” It is also easier for God to direct you and reveal his calling to you if you take initiative to ask Him and to getting moving in direction you feel He is leading.
Sometimes it seems God is preparing us for a greater work and testing our faith. Just ask the apostle Paul about his missionary journeys. Many of His trips seem illogical to any modern day planner, yet God had some type of training program for him. – Dave Davidson
