Dedicating your life and ways to the Lord comes with myriad of benefits. One of which is Him talking to you at any point in time He deems necessary – not only in your need. What a privilege and an honour!
When Eli realized it was the Lord who was calling Samuel, he (Eli) told Samuel, “Go and lie down, and if He calls you, say, ‘Speak Lord, for your servant is listening’.” I honestly do not know how one can serve a master to the master’s desire and satisfaction without being attentive to his calls and paying heed with all willingness and enthusiasm, at all times.
The Christian journey is one of volition/ choice and the confirmation of it lies in the instruction Christ gave His disciples before He was taken up to Heaven, “Go into the world and preach the gospel, and if any man believes…” The choice to believe the message of Grace that has been laid at your doorstep is solely yours.
Being a Christian is all about service to the Lord and His creation (mankind), and to serve means listening with rapt attention and delivering to perfection what has been assigned you. I am standing on Samuel 3:9 to charge you to tune in your inner man to the Holy Spirit at all times so that your reply to the Lord without any assistance from any human will be, “Speak Lord, your servant is listening.” Only through this way you will know the mind of God concerning your ordained purpose and the journeys you are taking for the Lord.
Stay blessed, and remember there is nothing greater than the love of God for you.
