Holy Greetings, Family:
I pray that you are growing closer in your relationship with the Lord every day. Intimacy through worship, with the Lord, is so essential. I could not write these devotional messages, each week, without hearing from the Lord. I know that I am accountable for each word I write, so being sensitive to the Lord’s voice is a must.
1 Samuel 3:7-10
New International Version
7 Now Samuel did not yet know(A) the Lord: The word(B) of the Lord had not yet been revealed(C) to him.
8 A third time the Lord called, “Samuel!” And Samuel got up and went to Eli and said, “Here I am; you called me.”
Then Eli realized that the Lord was calling the boy. 9 So Eli told Samuel, “Go and lie down, and if he calls you, say, ‘Speak, Lord, for your servant is listening.’” So Samuel went and lay down in his place.
10 The Lord came and stood there, calling as at the other times, “Samuel! Samuel!(D)”
Then Samuel said, “Speak, for your servant is listening.”
We live and move by every word that comes from you. Help us to continue to posture ourselves for worship, so that we can hear from you. May we become more sensitive each day to your voice, so that we, like Samuel, can respond with, “Speak Lord, for your servant is listening.” In the name of Jesus we do pray, Amen.
