I’ve always been drawn to the story of Samuel. A boy who heard a voice calling in the night and, after a few times, realized it was God. His response was perfect and humble. “Speak, for your servant is listening.” (1 Samuel 3:10)
He didn’t ask questions or favors. He waited for God.
“Samuel dared to believe that what God had to say was far better than anything young Samuel could ask for or imagine.” from Daring Faith devotional by Nicole Reyes
God please close all the doors except the one that leads me to where you want me to be.
I don’t want to go through a different door that seems right, seems good, or even just acceptable to my limited self and brain.
I want your perfect will. I want to hear your voice louder than my own.
So, like Samuel, “Speak for your servant is listening.”
