MEMORISE: My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: John 10:27

READ: 1 Samuel 3:1-21

1 And the child Samuel ministered unto the Lord before Eli. And the word of the Lord was precious in those days; there was no open vision.

2 And it came to pass at that time, when Eli was laid down in his place, and his eyes began to wax dim, that he could not see;

3 And ere the lamp of God went out in the temple of the Lord, where the ark of God was, and Samuel was laid down to sleep;

4 That the Lord called Samuel: and he answered, Here am I.

5 And he ran unto Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou calledst me. And he said, I called not; lie down again. And he went and lay down.

6 And the Lord called yet again, Samuel. And Samuel arose and went to Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou didst call me. And he answered, I called not, my son; lie down again.

7 Now Samuel did not yet know the Lord, neither was the word of the Lord yet revealed unto him.

8 And the Lord called Samuel again the third time. And he arose and went to Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou didst call me. And Eli perceived that the Lord had called the child.

9 Therefore Eli said unto Samuel, Go, lie down: and it shall be, if he call thee, that thou shalt say, Speak, Lord; for thy servant heareth. So Samuel went and lay down in his place.

10 And the Lord came, and stood, and called as at other times, Samuel, Samuel. Then Samuel answered, Speak; for thy servant heareth.

11 And the Lord said to Samuel, Behold, I will do a thing in Israel, at which both the ears of every one that heareth it shall tingle.

12 In that day I will perform against Eli all things which I have spoken concerning his house: when I begin, I will also make an end.

13 For I have told him that I will judge his house for ever for the iniquity which he knoweth; because his sons made themselves vile, and he restrained them not.

14 And therefore I have sworn unto the house of Eli, that the iniquity of Eli’s house shall not be purged with sacrifice nor offering for ever.

15 And Samuel lay until the morning, and opened the doors of the house of the Lord. And Samuel feared to shew Eli the vision.

16 Then Eli called Samuel, and said, Samuel, my son. And he answered, Here am I.

17 And he said, What is the thing that the Lord hath said unto thee? I pray thee hide it not from me: God do so to thee, and more also, if thou hide any thing from me of all the things that he said unto thee.

18 And Samuel told him every whit, and hid nothing from him. And he said, It is the Lord: let him do what seemeth him good.

19 And Samuel grew, and the Lord was with him, and did let none of his words fall to the ground.

20 And all Israel from Dan even to Beersheba knew that Samuel was established to be a prophet of the Lord.

21 And the Lord appeared again in Shiloh: for the Lord revealed himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the word of the Lord.


God communicates with His children diverse ways. He in can talk to you while you are in the church or while you are playing or reading. He can speak through dreams, visions, Scriptures, or with an audible voice. All you need to do is listen, so you can hear Him clearly.

When God speaks, it can be to warn you or give you an instruction like He did with Jonah in Jonah 1:1-2. Unfortunately, Jonah tried to play smart with God and paid for it dearly. God’s instructions are not to be joked with; therefore, I implore you to promptly obey whenever He speaks to you.

When God speaks to me during services and I say, “My Daddy says…. many people wonder how I am able to hear Him easily. One thing I can tell you is that God looks at your heart. If you want to hear from Him clearly, you must have a heart that is right before Him. By this, I mean that you must be holy and you must be a carrier of His presence. Be like Samuel whose heart was right with God and who dwelt in His temple.


A right heart is what you need to hear from God.

HYMN 21: Nearer, My God To Thee

  1. Nearer, my God to Thee,
    Nearer to Thee;
    E’en though it be a cross
    That raiseth me,
    Still all my song shall be,
    Nearer, my God, to Thee,(2ce)
    Nearer to Thee!
  2. Though, like the wanderer,
    The sun gone down,
    Darkness be over me,
    My rest a stone,
    Yet in my dreams I’d be
    Nearer, my God, to Thee,(2ce)
    Nearer to Thee
  3. There let the way appear
    Steps unto heaven;
    All that Thou send’st to me
    In mercy given;
    Angels to beckon me
    Nearer, my God, to Thee,(2ce)
    Nearer to Thee
  4. Then with my waking thoughts
    Bright with thy praise,
    Out of my stony grief
    Bethel I’ll raise;
    So by my woes to be
    Nearer, my God to thee,(2ce)
    Nearer to Thee!
  5. Or if on joyful wing
    Cleaving thy sky,
    Sun, moon, and stars forgot,
    Upwards I fly
    Still all my songs shall be,
    Nearer my God to thee,(2ce)
    Nearer to Thee!
  6. BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 2 Samuel 17:1-29 John 19:23-42
