“The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and a contrite heart, O God, You will not despise.” (Psalm 51:17, NASB)

“Call” is a word often reserved for great and lofty aspirations. The words describing the experience of God’s call are not easily found. The word “missionary” can bring about the same thoughts as “call”. Christians sometimes see missionaries as superhumans who are perfect in their spiritual walks that God pulls them out of the mundane to do extraordinary things.

It’s hard to remember that it is not we who do the work, but that we are just supposed to be available to God so He can do His work. We must realize that we don’t have to be superhuman to do God’s will, but we do need a heart that trusts Him where He leads us.

Prayer: Dear Lord, strengthen the call of missionaries around the world today. Let them see You at work among the people they are serving. Give them hearts to trust You. Show each of us today how we can trust You more. Amen.
