Are You Listening

The Lord came and stood there, calling as at the other times, “Samuel! Samuel! Then Samuel said, “Speak, for your servant is listening.” First Samuel 3:10

Are you listing? I know He is speaking, that is not the question. The question is; are you listing?

We get caught up in the flames of information from our 24/7 news and forget that Jesus is not asking us to fight about our faith and His truths; He simply wants us to allow His Spirit to direct our paths. If we love Him he says that we will follow and obey Him. You live by His Word, be real, not phony, and just be the very best you that you can be by His power and through His truth. We will not win the battle for this world by our words and arguments; we will win this battle by belonging to Jesus and following His Word. The more you fuss the further down the list of leadership and servant you will become. You don’t have to compromise, but you also don’t have to brag on how right you are. Let God do the bragging when He says, ‘Well done.” Live His truth, serve Him, and leave the victory to His power and will. Remember it is through His light shining through you that others will see Him. Not your light, but His.
