give us ears to hear

"Oh, give me Samuel's ear,
An open ear, O Lord,
Alive and quick to hear
Each whisper of Thy Word;
Like him to answer to Thy call
And to obey Thee first of all"
(James Drummond Burns)

If you desire to hear from God, lower the ambient noise of your life and listen expectantly for those whispers of God, your ears will hear them. - James MacDonald

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If we are ever going to go higher in our relationship with the Lord, we have to be always listening for His voice. We need to be quiet and still before Him and let His voice penetrate the noise of the world around us.  God is always speaking, we just need to be ready and willing to hear. Oh, Lord, give us ears to hear!

That is soo true. It took me the longest time to finally realize my prayer for God to speak to me was a lost cause. He is ALWAYS talking to us. The question is, are we listening?

It's so easy to get too busy to listen to God. Thank you for the encouragement to take the time to listen!
