Maybe GOD is Trying to Tell You Something?

Culturally, I am blessed to have strong Gospel roots. When Andre Crouch and Quincy Jones collaborated on the production of “The Color Purple”, they channeled the Old Spiritual Movement with “GOD is Trying to Tell You Something”. Recent events in my own life prompt me to read. In 1st Samuel 3, the Bible recalls a restless night long ago. Holy Spirit stirred young Samuel’s heart and he thought his mentor was calling out to him. When his teacher wisely instructed him to be still and listen , Samuel did so, answering
“…Speak; for Thy servant heareth.” (1 Samuel 3:10b) We live in a noisy, distracting world. I think hearing the precious voice of our Living LORD is more difficult now than ever. The Bible tells us GOD speaks in a still, small voice (1 Kings 19:12). Interpret how you will but know GOD speaks however He chooses and when He does, we must choose to listen. Since GOD Almighty is always at work (John 5), I believe He always has something for us to hear. We all profit from His work when we are willing to listen. I have learned the hard way and know I must listen closely. GRAVITY CHECK: How’s your listening?

“GOD is Trying to Tell You Something” Excerpts from The Color Purple
“Can’t sleep at night and you wonder why
Maybe God is trying to tell you something
Crying all night long, something’s gone wrong
Maybe God is trying to tell you something”
“If I were you I would say yes,
Speak Lord, Speak to me
Well you can’t sleep at night
And you sure wonder why
Well maybe God is trying to tell you something
You cry all night long
Something has gone wrong
Well maybe God is trying to tell you something
God is trying to tell you something
God is trying to tell you something
Maybe God is trying to tell you something right
now”
