How much time do we actually spend listening to God? Not rattling off a list of stuff he already knows , but just relaxing in his presence waiting to hear and then write down the things he is presenting to us?
Do we actually believe we don't have time for such a pursuit?
Eugene Peterson reminds us that in the story of Moby Dick the harpooner is not over active like rest of the crew he is relaxed, poised, and ready to strike.
If we don't spend time waiting and listening to God, in all of our rushing about we may miss our opportunity to do what we were created to do!
Listening to God is not a waste of time it is preparation for the task of ministry.
