Hummel: waiting on God

Wednesday, December 2, 2015
    If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.
    —James 1:5 (NIV)
    Prayerful waiting on God is indispensable to effective service. Here we learn the truth about God, ourselves, and the tasks he wants us to undertake. Christians who are too busy to stop, take spiritual inventory, and receive their assignments from God may be productuive. We may work day and night to achieve much that seems significant to ourselves and to others. But we don’t complete the work God has for us to do...
    God has given each of us a unique combination of ability, strength, and opportunity. Will he not also give us the insight and power to use our time effectively for his glory?
    ... Charles E. Hummel (1923-2004), Freedom from Tyranny of the Urgent, InterVarsity Press, 2009, p. 65 (see the book)
    See also Jas. 1:5; Isa. 40:7-8; Luke 12:15-21; 1 Cor. 7:29-31; Jas. 4:14; 1 Pet. 4:7; 1 John 2:17
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant me wisdom in the use of my time.
