Thoughts and insights from Jubilee Church Wirral

Listen.

By Danielle Wynn, Director of Youth & Children’s Ministry, Jubilee Church Wirral

Stop.
Listen.
Can you hear it?

It’s God’s voice. He is speaking to you.

YOU.

The creator is speaking. Will you listen?

Samuel didn’t get it at first. Samuel heard God’s voice but thought it was Eli calling him. Three times he went to Eli in 1 Samuel 3. Three times he thought it was Eli speaking to him. Finally Eli realised it was the Lord calling Samuel. The Lord wanted to show him something. He needed Samuel’s attention so He could reveal something very important to him. Read the rest of the chapter to find out what…

God speaks to us in many different ways. I often ask the Lord for a dream if I am in a dilemma and unsure what to do. Time and time again he provides answers in this way. Weighing it with His word helps us to understand what He is trying to say. God also speaks to us through reading His word. How many times have we read a verse and it felt exactly right for the circumstances at the time? These moments can be life changing.

God can also speak through nature, and through other people too. There are many ways to hear the voice of God. But are we ready to hear and see what He might be trying to say?

Are you listening to the Lord? Do you take time out and stop and say “Speak Lord, for your servant is listening” as Samuel did?

We can all too often get caught up in what’s going on around us. Families, friends, jobs, news….the list of distractions is endless! If we aren’t deliberate about taking time to stop, regularly, and listen to the Lord, we can miss out on so much He has to say to us. Spending time with our amazing God is NEVER fruitless!

As our youth leaders and young people prepare to attend Newday this year, please pray that this time would be an opportunity to stop….and listen.

Please pray that our young people would have their eyes open, ears ready to hear and hearts ready to listen to what the Lord wants to say to them.
