“Speak, for your servant is listening.”
Listening to the LORD is an act of humility; a recognition that He is the center of our attention. Such awareness unseals the doors of our hearts to receive the sweet fragrant of Wisdom.Listening to the LORD, however, can be a challenge when we are unfamiliar with His voice.
Like Samuel, we could confuse God’s voice with another the voice of another person.
Therefore, like a runner training for a marathon, we must train our hearts to recognize and to receive the LORD’s words. Such conquest is possible through a training regime of prayer, worship, and Lectio Divina.
