But Samuel replied, “What is more pleasing to the Lord: your burnt offerings and sacrifices or your obedience to His voice? Listen! Obedience is better than sacrifice, and submission is better than offering the fat of rams.
Good Morning My LORD!
I’m a little slow this morning. It was hard to get out of bed, but You were right there encouraging me as You always do. Thank You for the love You pour over me and Your presence that never leaves me.
Father, help me to remember that You desire my obedience above all else. It doesn’t matter if I do all the ‘right’ things or that I look good on the outside, it’s my heart and attitude that You are calling me to change.
Your desire for me is to hear Your voice, to respond to what You are asking, and then to do it. I’m not sure why I sometimes neglect You, there is such joy in doing Your will. I guess I still have too much of me surrounding me and not enough of You. Help me today to take on Your personality so I will listen and hear Your voice. I want to be obedient to Your calling.
