Ministering To The Lord Is Taking The Time To Truly Hear God
Today's Word of Encouragement from Wayne:
"Then the Lord came and stood and called as at other times, ‘Samuel! Samuel!’ And Samuel said, ‘Speak, for your servant is listening.’ The Lord said to Samuel, ‘Behold, I am about to do a thing in Israel at which both ears of everyone who hears it will tingle.’"
1 Samuel 3: 10-11
God was telling little Samuel something first, before He showed anyone else in all of Israel. Why? To me the big obvious conclusion is that Samuel, through ministering to the Lord, repeatedly showed God that he was the only one who was taking the time to truly hear, for he was the only one drawing near to God in His presence, and remaining there with Him.
God wants to speak to us, but in order for us to truly hear we must, as the psalmist wrote, "be still and know that I am God" (Psalm 46:10). God wants us to hear His word today and, even more importantly, to understand what we have heard. So let us all be dedicated, in real time ministry to the Lord, to maintaining and occupying our "inner room" (Matthew 6:6), the "you are a temple of God, and that the spirit of God dwells in you" (1 Corinthians 3:16) environment for our Lord, a place where He may dwell and where we may hear, because we are drawing near on a regular basis, like Samuel did, to minister to our Lord. Hallelujah!
