Ask God to speak to you

Daily Thought

Your Word for 21 June 2024

Isaiah 12:2a
‘Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid.’

dw07september15Initially Samuel did not realise that God was speaking to Him.

1 Samuel 3:7 ‘Now Samuel did not yet know the LORD: The word of the LORD had not yet been revealed to him.’

He thought it was the old priest Eli.

1 Samuel 3:10 The LORD came and stood there, calling as at the other times, “Samuel! Samuel!” Then Samuel said, “Speak, for your servant is listening.”

If we have this attitude, it won’t be long and He will begin to speak to us.   Samuel’s answer indicates an attitude of heart.   It indicates a willingness to wait, to be still, to listen and to hear.
You and I should ask the Lord to speak to us. The Bible tells us that we have not because we ask not.  Here we see Samuel saying to the Lord: ‘SPEAK LORD!’
When last did you ask the Lord to speak to you?  When last did you wait long enough to hear His gentle voice, that still small voice?  When last did you read the Bible with the intention and request that God would speak to you through His Word?
This should be a part of our daily lives. The Lord can use a myriad of ways to speak to each one of us.  We should be willing and prepared to receive His word in whatever form it may come, even if it comes from a child.
