DAY 238: Did You Put God in Second Place?

Now then, stand still and see this great thing the Lord is about to do before your eyes!  ~ 1 Samuel 12:16

Samuel stands before the doubters and the nervous people who want God's presence, but won't give up their selfish desires.

"What have you done?" Samuel asked. "You people are crazy, and you messed up! Sit back and watch what God is about to do! You will surely regret ignoring Him and giving your life to a human."

Samuel is telling us the same. Pay attention to God's call in your life. He is patient, but He also doesn't stand for being second. Wake up before He shows you what a big mistake it was to choose other things over Him. 

Today... get still. Be quiet for a few minutes. Do not talk. Simply listen to God's voice. Pray for it to echo in your soul.  Ask Him to be first.  Then step aside and allow God to lead you.
