(Now Samuel did not yet know the Lord, nor was the word of the Lord yet revealed to him.) And the Lord called Samuel again the third time. So he arose and went to Eli, and said, “Here I am, for you did call me.” Then Eli perceived that the Lord had called the boy. Therefore Eli said to Samuel, “Go, lie down; and it shall be, if He calls you, that you must say, ‘Speak, Lord, for Your servant hears.’ ” So Samuel went and lay down in his place. Now the Lord came and stood and called as at other times, “Samuel! Samuel!” And Samuel answered, “Speak, for Your servant hears.”
I Samuel 3:7‭-‬10 NKJV

One of the greatest privileges of being a Christian is hearing from God. God speaks regularly and directly to everyone that belongs to Him to reveal Himself, His purposes and His ways. It is a great problem for anyone who claims to be a Christian not to hear from God.

Until a man has fully perceived the voice of God and is willing and ready to be attentive to hear what God is saying, God also will not continue to speak. So, hearing from God demands that you cultivate the practice of solitude, earnest expectation to hear from God, listening attentively to what He says and readiness to obey what He tells you to do.

At first, you may struggle to distinguish God’s voice. But the more frequent and intimate your times with Him, the easier it becomes to hear and recognize His still small voice. May the Lord help you to be sensitive, attentive and responsive to His voice when He calls to reveal Himself, His purposes and His ways to you. Good morning and do have a blessed and glorious worship experience.
