Listen To God

“‘I am the LORD your God. – But you have not listened to me.”
Judges 6:10 (NLT)

“And Samuel replied, ‘Speak, your servant is listening.’”
I Samuel 3:10

“You have not listened to me.” You would think if God spoke, people would listen and obey. But do we? How many times have we turned our back on what His word has to say? How many times have we ignored the conviction of the Holy Spirit? How many times have we bent the meaning of the Scriptures into our own will? There is a dedication and discipline to listening to God. There is a passion tempered with conviction that results in obeying Him. Part of listening is repenting when we know we have ignored Him. Part of listening is remembering the past and trusting Him with the present. The biggest part of listening is “listening.” Reading His word, spending time with God, meditating on what He has to say, all of this creates a real and vibrant relationship. Relating to God in this way, knowing His unconditional love for us and learning to love Him in return is the best way to keep our hearts ready to listen to Him. Might our prayer be like that of Samuel, “Speak, your servant is listening.”

Father, thank You for speaking to me so many times. Forgive me for the times I did not listen. Help me to seek Your wisdom. Help me to read Your word and to meditate on it. Most of all, might the prayer of my heart be, “Speak, Lord, Your servant is listening.”

One thought on “Listen To God”


    The Bible says that angels are to minister, yes, they are servants. God has specifically sent them to minister to us, to serve us. If your earthly Father sent a servant to your house to serve you, yes, to minister to your needs, wouldn’t you tell them, or shouldn’t I say, command them to cut the grass, or clean the house etc. They would be looking to you waiting for their next instruction, for that is what they are employed to do.
    You would say to them, “Go, do this” or “Go do that”. You see, you wouldn’t ask them, you would tell them. You wouldn’t phone up your Father, and ask him to tell them, because your Father has put them in your charge, to do your work. This is the same principle that God wants you to use when you command angels.
    If you have a need or a want of any sort, we are to go to the source our heavenly Father, for He has a store house full of blessings. Then we are to send out the angels to retrieve the blessings that our Father has in store for us.
    We must make all our petitions to our heavenly Father in and through the name of Jesus, for we know that all the promises of God are yes, and amen in Christ Jesus. This is how we know by faith that God’s answer is yes, when we make our petitions to Him.
    Now I reiterate that we are to command His angels to go and retrieve the answers to our prayers, and when these angels bring what we have requested to us, from our Father, then we are to thank our heavenly Father in Jesus name for His goodness to us.
    To reiterate once again, we do not ask the angels for anything, we command them. We do not thank them, we thank our Father. I hope this teaching which the Lord has given to me, to be published amongst His people will be a great blessing and an encouragement to you all. It certainly will if you put it into practice.
