There are times when things get so hard that we start to doubt if we did hear God’s call; that’s when encouraging verses for missionaries come in very handy. It is easy to doubt and get discouraged in moments like this. However, I’d like to remind you that God never goes back on his Word. Test and trails are part of this walk and it is essential that you run to the Word for refuge in these times. Here is a list of encouraging verses for you as a missionary. I have needed to hear God’s voice at many times in my walk with him and service to Him. Sometimes he speaks to me through others and other times (many times) I get my strength directly from scriptures. And I can boldly say that I have seen God as a very present help in times of need.
I pray God speaks to your heart through His Word, through this compilation of encouraging verses for missionaries and especially TODAY!
