Pay Attention

Often I wonder if I am really serving God. I wonder if I am doing what God wants me to do. And I wonder how I can know what God wants me to do.
Our Bible Reading today may help us understand more about paying attention to God. Samuel was dedicated to serving God. God had a plan for Samuel’s life. But Samuel didn’t know about that plan until he paid attention to God. Verse 10 says, “The Lord came and stood there. He called as he did before. He said, ‘Samuel, Samuel!’ Samuel said, ‘Speak, I am your servant, and I am listening.’”
God wants us to pay attention to Him. How do we pay attention to God? We pay attention by asking God to show us His plan and then waiting patiently for His answer. God will make it clear to us what He wants us to do.
Maybe you can stop right now and think about your life. Ask God to show you His plan for your life. Then be patient and wait for His answer.
