“Now Samuel did not yet know the LORD, neither was the word of the LORD yet revealed unto him.” 1 Samuel 3:7Text — 1 Samuel 3:1-7
Stay tuned is a common statement we often hear on radio or television. It is a way of wooing listeners to continue with that station. It could be said to be a marketing strategy for broadcasting stations to stay connected to as many customers as they can reach. God is talking to us but are we listening? The fact that God talks to us should not be a surprise. God has been talking to people from the time He created us – Adam, Abraham, Job, Moses, Joshua, David, Samuel and all the other prophets. The secret of hearing from God is being ready to hear and obey.
God always goes straight to the point. Study about God’s conversation with people in the Bible and you will see. Sometimes, learning about the past helps us to stay tuned for our future conversation with God. Have you heard God speaking to your heart lately? What is He saying? What is He asking you to do -Accept Jesus? Read your Bible regularly? Get involved in evangelism? Whatever He tells you to do, you must promptly obey. Obedience brings blessings. It is also important that you continue to listen to God. When you stop listening to God, you may miss very vital information from Him. So, stay tuned!
Prayer for today
Lord, help me to listen to Your word and to obey.
