Today Reminder - 22 April 2013 (Listen)

A reminder for today
And the LORD came and called as before, "Samuel! Samuel!"  And Samuel replied, "Speak, your servant is listening." (1 Samuel 3:10)

Samuel’s life was dedicated in serving the Lord, while Eli’s sons did terrible things against the Lord. Finally the Lord had enough and decided to punish them, and in this punishment Eli’s whole family will be punished. I keep thinking of Samuel growing up in the temple. He never really saw his parents and from a young age he was working in the temple. It must’ve been bad in the sense that he was so far away from his family, but good in the sense that he was so close to God. 

I just love these words: "Speak, Lord, your servant is listening."  Today I wish to remind you that the Lord calls out to us so many times and I want to remind you to listen to His voice deep within you. From the moment we wake up until we go to bed we must keep our ears open to His voice. Then most important is that we listen and follow His voice as He tells us what to do. Today let us focus on what God tells us and open our minds and souls to His Word. God will change your life, just as he changed Samuel’s life. God took a woman that could not have children, gave her a son and took this son and made him a great prophet. 

God will call on you, so listen and let Him guide you through your life, because you are destined for greatness in His name and for His glory.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus.
