Samuel was still young in the Lord, dedicated to God from birth and even in the things of God. 1 Samuel 3:1 says clearly that Samuel was submitted and he was being trained by his mentor. However, when God was trying to speak to Samuel on another level, he did not even recognize His voice. It took three times for God to try to get Samuel’s attention and every time he mistook the voice of God for the voice of his mentor. Are you guilty of that today? Did you know that even when you are hearing the voice of you mentor, leader or pastor, God is really the one trying to get your attention! I know often we all find it hard to differentiate God’s voice from the voice of those who are in authority over us, not recognizing that it is God who ordained them and he does use them to speak to us.
I believe God is trying to get your attention today. Go back again and be open to the Spirit of God to receive whatever the Holy Spirit is saying to you. Pray the prayer of Samuel “Speak, Lord, Thy Servant Heareth”.
