Speak to Me
As I was doing my devotions one morning in 2004, I read the story about God speaking to Samuel. (1 Samuel 3:1-10.)
The LORD came and stood there, calling as at the other times, "Samuel! Samuel!" Then Samuel said, "Speak, for your servant is listening."
I was so taken with the thought that we usually assume that God isn't speaking, when He actually is. When I read the line "speak, Lord, for your servant is listening," I knew that was my prayer that day and then the song came.
This song has a special place in my heart because it really did turn out to be a sincere prayer that I actually ended up desperately and continually singing to God in regards to a difficult situation I was trying to navigate through. I can honestly say that the Lord spoke in a still small voice and reminded me of some specific promises that I have held on to throughout my life. He really does speak if we’ll just believe and listen!
