So he said to Samuel, “Go and lie down again, and if someone calls again, say, ‘Speak, LORD, your servant is listening.'” So Samuel went back to bed. And the LORD came and called as before, “Samuel! Samuel!” And Samuel replied, “Speak, your servant is listening.”
1 Samuel 3:9-10 (NLT)
Just as in the case of Samuel, each one of us is being called by God. In fact, our heavenly Father is continuously looking to converse with us. If we need wisdom with regards to an important decision, God wants to give us wisdom; if we are in need of peace, He wants to speak peace to our hearts; if we need direction, we can safely look to Him. And so may we remain open and receptive each day to what God might be speaking to us, whether it be through His Word, through the intuitive guidance of the Holy Spirit, or even through people He has put in our path. Let us be sure that God wants to be fully involved in every area of our lives; and the more we make it our habit to listen, the more will we develop our ability to hear.
