At 4:45 AM a still small voice awakened me. “Get up. Go study the Word.” I wish I could tell you I got up, but that would be a lie.
Instead it was, “is that really God? Do you know what time it is? If this is really you God, please wake me up in 30 minutes, You can do anything.” And within seconds I was back asleep.
Later I was reminded of Samuel who was awakened in the night by a still small voice calling his name.
The thing about God is that He won’t barge His way into your life. But if you ignore His voice, eventually you will no longer have the ears to hear Him call.
I don’t ever want to be in that place.
I hope that next time my response will be “speak Lord for you servant is listening”.
(Although I do respectfully ask that all conversations begin at a more decent hour of the day!)
