Speak, Lord, for your servant is listening. (1 Samuel 3:9, NIV)
What a great encouragement when I learned for myself that God delights to speak to us. He knows how to speak to us, and He will speak to us. We don’t have to strain to hear Him or work up just the right frame of mind.
But He doesn’t shout. We need to listen.
He doesn’t insist. We need to obey. He will let us ignore Him if we choose.
We need to read the Bible with our heart and mind tuned to listen and to obey Him.
I am listening.
