More of That

I Samuel 3:10 finishes up with Samuel saying, “Speak, Lord, for your servant is  listening.”

We need more of that.

We need to take more time to listen to God.

We need more of an attitude that says, “God, what do you want?”

“God, what are you trying to tell me?”

Speak, Lord, for your servant is listening.   And listening implies being willing to do what God wants.   He didn’t say hearing – which implies only taking in the sounds.

God wants us to listen to Him.

And do what He says.

May we all have more of THAT today and forever more.


Do Something? Me?

So, last night, we’re on the way back from football practice and this song comes on the radio.    My 13 year old interrupts conversation and turns it up “LOUD.”    So, naturally, we all started singing along……

Then, this morning, in my personal devotions, I come across Judges 6:11-16. 

God comes to Gideon and says, “Do something!”    He says, “Me?   I’m nobody, I’m nothing! I can’t do anything.”

And God’s response? 

“I have sent you.   I’ll be with you.   Believe in me.”

And go do something!
