This morning I read I Samuel 3:1-10. You know the story. It’s about Samuel who thinks that Eli is calling him. Eli finally instructs him to answer God, who was the one making the house call, by saying, “Speak Lord for thy servant heareth.”
But it was this line that jumped out at me today.
“The Lord came and stood there,
calling as at the other times….”
It got me thinking. How many times has God tried to get my attention but I missed it? How many times did I not recognize his voice because of the din of other things crowding Him out?
It’s time for me to be quiet…and listen…so I don’t miss His voice.
