«Tune your ears to wisdom, and concentrate on understanding» (Proverbs 2:2, NLT).
Do you have a friend who talks too much? Of course, one of those that always occupies the center of the conversation and does not let others participate in it
Sometimes it’s annoying, isn’t it?
William Shakespeare said that prosperity excels in the one that knows how to listen and not so much in the one who talks a lot. When you learn to pay attention to others you develop one of the most edifying habits for your social, intellectual and, of course, spiritual life. Samuel was a child when he learned this important lesson. Who did he learn to listen to? None other than God! Does the Lord speak? Yes of course! What happens is that many times human beings do not let him speak.
When we pray, we only speak, but what about the Lord? God has much to say to us, so it is important to assume an attitude of reverent attention. But how does God speak? Actually, He has many ways to communicate with us. Of course, He speaks through the Bible; He also does so through the messages of His servants; He speaks by means of the great lessons of nature; God also opens and closes doors. However, His voice may also be understandable to the human ear.
A fundamental part of dialogue with God is to listen to His voice. Let Him communicate with you this morning, give him time to cover your conscience with His words of eternal life. Do not be caught by the tyranny of the urgent and by the haste of the morning. It’s better to get up early to talk to your heavenly Father and hear .11His voice.
The Christian life is built from a relationship with God, so if you learn to listen to Him, you will become a faithful believer. This is demonstrated by the life of Samuel, who as he grew up became a leader of the people of Israel. Thanks to his influence and his vision as a leader, God’s people lived their splendor as a nation under the reigns of Saul, David, and Solomon. However, one of the most important attributes in the life of this prophet was that he learned to listen attentively to the voice of God.
Would you like to hear the voice of God? You can try this morning. After explaining your thoughts, give the Lord time to speak to you.
