Leaning In to Hear from God – Beloved Women – November 5, 2019
“And the Lord came and stood, calling as at other times, “Samuel! Samuel!” And Samuel said, “Speak, for your servant hears.” (1 Samuel 3:10 ESV)
Have you ever been intently listening to someone speak or sing? Suddenly, you realize your body is physically leaning in to get closer to the sound. Instinctively, your body knows the closer my proximity, the better it can hear, and process what’s happening. We lean in just a little closer to the sound. In our case, now is the time to lean in to God’s voice. When we can’t hear Him, we should instinctively yearn to draw a little closer.
If this means waking up early to pray, we do it.
If this means studying the last scriptures He highlighted to us, we do it.
If this means cutting out distractions, we do it.
We make a choice to push anything aside that may be standing in our way of hearing. The more we lean in, the easier it is to hear. May our hearts ring, “Speak Lord, I’m listening.”
Lord, I yearn to hear from You. God, I ask that You highlight every distraction and hinderance keeping me from Your voice. Show me the ways I can lean into Your voice. Speak Lord, I’m listening. In Jesus Christ’s Name, I pray, Amen.
How can you lean in more to God’s presence?
