LISTENING

1 SAMUEL 3:19 (MSG)
Samuel grew up. God was with him, and Samuel’s prophetic record was flawless.

LUKE 10:16 (NLT)
Then he said to the disciples, “Anyone who accepts your message is also accepting me. And anyone who rejects you is rejecting me. And anyone who rejects me is rejecting God, who sent me.”

SUMMARY SENTENCE
You can't accept God without accepting his message.

PRAYER
Thank you, God, for sending messengers and for your Word as it comes to us through scripture. I confess that I'm a pick and choose kind of person who accepts your message when it is convenient and fits with my agenda. I understand that needs to change and I'm looking for you to implement that change in my life. I'm going to pour more of myself into listening to what you have to say. Amen.

THE LORD’S PRAYER
Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your Name; your Kingdom come; your will be done, on earth as in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. Save us from the time of trial and deliver us from evil. For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours now and forever. Amen.
