Numbers 7 Over two thousand times in the scriptures, we find the words “listen” and “hear.” A hymn writer Emily Crawford captured those truths as she wrote: “Speak, Lord in the stillness while I wait on Thee;” Moses and Samuel are examples of men who heeded that counsel. God clearly marked Moses as his chosen leader and spoke to him audibly. Do we experience this on a daily basis? In Num. 7:89, we read, “Now when Moses went into the tent of meeting to speak with Him, he heard the voice speaking to him from above the mercy seat that was on the ark of the testimony, from between the two cherubim, so He spoke to him.” In addition, later, the priest Eli told Samuel when he heard God speaking, he was to answer: “Speak for your servant is listening.” [1 Sam 3:10]
As you sit down to read each day, quiet your heart so you can hear the voice of the Lord speaking.
