Ever given a talk to a church group and felt absolutely defeated?
Men and women in ministry who are not finding satisfaction in Christ are likely to demonstrate that with overexertion and overpreparation for speaking and with no peace about what they do after they do it. If we have not come to the place of resting in God, we will go back and think, Oh, if I'd done this or Oh, I didn't do that. When you come to the place where you are drinking deeply from God and trusting him to act with you, there is peace about what you have communicated.
There is a great deal of truth here. The challenge comes in developing this type of life, a life where we are "resting in God," trusting God to provide us with the words that need to be said.
The quotation is from an article Willard wrote appearing at ChurchLeaders.com. You can read it here.
