“Adonai came and stood, then spoke as the other times: Sh’mu’el (Samuel)! Sh’mu’el! Then Sh’mu’el said, Speak; Your servant is listening.”
1 Samuel 3:10 CJB
How often does the LORD call us and we have too much noise going on around us and we don’t hear or listen?
“The voice of Adonai is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, Adonai over rushing waters, the voice of Adonai in power, the voice of Adonai in splendor.”
Psalm 29:3-4 CJB
The LORD is always speaking and giving us direction, problem is we aren’t listening or we allow the distractions of the world get in the way!
“He said, Go outside, and stand on the mountain before Adonai; and right then and there, Adonai went past. A mighty blast of wind tore the mountains apart and broke the rocks in pieces before Adonai, but Adonai was not in the wind. After the wind came an earthquake, but Adonai was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake, fire broke out; but Adonai was not in the fire. And after the fire came a quiet, subdued voice.”
1 Kings 19:11-12 CJB
In other words, the LORD isn’t in the noise, but in the quiet! So if you’re are not hearing from the LORD, simply just turn off the noise. Have a blessed day listening for the LORD!
“No one is as holy as Adonai, because there is none to compare with you, no rock like our God.”

Because, our LORD is so amazing, we should worship Him, letting nothing else get in the way! Don’t let life’s situations dictate your day, but look to the LORD for everything.

“In deep depression (anguish) she prayed to Adonai and cried.”
1 Samuel 1:10 CJB
How’s our prayer life? Do we do a sixty-second prayer and expect great things or do we really go into deep prayer?
“On learning that the document had been signed, Daniel went home. The windows of his upstairs room were open in the direction of Yerushalayim; and there he kneeled down three times a day and prayed, giving thanks before his God, just as he had been doing before.”
Daniel 6:11 CJB
Here we see Daniel is going to be thrown into the lion’s den for his belief in the LORD. He doesn’t run and hide, he opens his windows and prays as he always does!
“May shalom be within your ramparts, prosperity in your palaces.”
Psalm 122:7 CJB
When Daniel is thrown in the lion’s den he isn’t panicking, but instead has peace! Why? He prays, calling on the LORD and Talking to Him about his situations and so should we! Don’t do sixty-second requests, spend some quality time throughout the day with the LORD.
May your day be richly blessed as you spend time in prayer!

“But I know that my Redeemer lives, that in the end He will rise on the dust; So that after my skin has been thus destroyed, then even without my flesh, I will see God.”

When we focus on the LORD, knowing He is going to redeem us one day from the messes of this world, we should rejoice and be blessed (happy).
“Dear friends, we are God’s children now; and it has not yet been made clear what we will become. We do know that when He appears, we will be like Him; because we will see Him as He really is.”

“He said, May Adonai bless you, my daughter. Your latest kindness is even greater than your first, in that you didn’t go after young men, neither the rich ones nor the poor.”
Ruth 3:10 CJB

“Humble yourselves before the LORD, and He will lift you up.”
James 4:10 CJB
Our situations will always go better when we are humble, taking the high road in matters and not always trying to be right or first!
“So the last ones will be first and the first last.”
