Speak Lord, You've Got My Attention

1Sa 3:9-10

Therefore Eli said unto Samuel, Go, lie down: and it shall be, if he call thee, that thou shalt say, Speak, LORD; for thy servant heareth. So Samuel went and lay down in his place. And the LORD came, and stood, and called as at other times, Samuel, Samuel. Then Samuel answered, Speak; for thy servant heareth.

Are you aware that God is calling you today? Do you know that He trying to get your attention? God uses many methods to try and get our attention. Sometimes it is a restless spirit. It can appear as a vague dissatisfaction with our life. Other times God uses someone's words to help us recognize He is speaking to us. Blessing us in an unusual way is another method God employs. (Romans 2:4) In each case, we are to stop and ask, "Lord, are You trying to say something to me?"

God sometimes allows our prayers to remain unanswered to prompt us to sharpen our focus on Him. Or He may say no to our request in order to gain our attention. Disappointments, difficulties, and failures are occasionally used by Him for the same reason. If we are wise, we will quickly seek Him out. In tragedies, financial reversals, and physical affliction, God waits to see if we will turn to Him and ask, "God, are You speaking to me?"

God deserves our undivided attention, but we get preoccupied. He waits to speak with us, but we are busy looking at our circumstances. Allow the events of life-both the pleasant and the painful-to prompt you to turn to God and ask, "Lord, are You asking for my attention?"
