Re:Verse reading–1 Samuel 3 (day six)
It is an incredible thing that God spoke to Samuel, but have you ever considered, what if Samuel never shared with others the things God had said? What if he just kept it all to himself out of fear or lack of confidence? Personally, I think God would have moved on and found someone else. God spoke to Samuel precisely because he was chosen to be a prophetic voice to the House of Israel; he was intended to speak into others what God had prepared for him to say.
Truth is we speak because God speaks. As God’s words brought life and conviction to others through Samuel, God does the same through his Church (the people not the building). We were never intended to keep to ourselves; mind our own business. When God speaks, and he is speaking, he has every intention that we in turn speak them to another. You are Samuel; we all are.
