Speak Lord

The Lord is very gracious to us. As we come into His presence, He speaks to us, declaring the Word of the Lord. Like Samuel, our response should be, “Speak Lord, for Thy servant heareth.” As God speaks, we should be eagerly willing to do all that He says.
         Our standard for this Word of the Lord is the Scripture. From them the Lord teaches us how we must live. We must hear and heed the Word so that we are not like Eli’s sons, Hophni and Phinehas, who were sons of Belial, worthless ones.
         And the training for this kind of obedience starts here. As the Spirit of God convicts us of sin, we should be willing to humble ourselves before the Lord so that when He speaks in His Word to us, we can rise up and hear Him. But if we will not hear the rebuke of the Lord, neither will we hear Him declare forgiveness, restoration and healing. So, let us confess our sins, repent of them and receive the blessing from God.
