1 Samuel 3:10

13 Feb

And the Lord came and called as before, “Samuel! Samuel!” And Samuel replied, “Speak, your servant is listening.”

1 Samuel 3:10

Dear God, sometimes it can be hard to hear your voice. Or better said, it can be easy to miss your voice. All I know to say is that I hope your plan for my life is foolproof because there are times when I feel very foolish and like I am just barreling through situations without remembering to slow down and seek your counsel.

I remember reading something years ago when I was in a particular phase of stepping out in faith to do something that seemed foolish on its surface. It was a guy who talked about quitting his job because he knew he had heard from you that it was time. His comment was, “When you have that certainty you are in the middle of God’s will for your life, you get to a point where you don’t even want to cross the street unless you’re sure that’s what God wants you to do.”

Father, it can be hard to REALLY know what your will is, but when I find it I am so grateful to be there. Help me to hear your voice at any given time and to have the wherewithal to respond. Do it for your glory’s sake. Help me to decrease as you increase. Help me to find the peace and joy you have for me.

In Jesus’ name I pray,
