Re:Verse reading–1 Samuel 3 (day seven)
“After many years of writing her own words in her prayer journal, missionary Sarah Young decided to be more attentive to the Savior’s voice and began listening to what He was saying. With pen in hand she embarked on a journey that forever changed her–and many others around the world.”–from book description. She titled the book that came from her journals Jesus Calling.
Not a new idea, actually. It is the same discovery that young Samuel made. God speaks! He clearly communicates. Through Scripture. By the Spirit. He makes His will and ways known.
Not an easy answer to life’s problems. Listening to God requires much self-surrender and patience. The assignments that come are often difficult. See Samuel’s story. Even so, life becomes different when we hear the Lord. Great power here.
