Re:Verse reading–1 Samuel 7 (day four)
Samuel was an intercessor for Israel, just like Moses had been. Both men had been set aside for the Lord from birth and they stood in the gap between God and Israel. Moses had stood between Israel and the Egyptians, now Samuel stands before Israel and the Philistines. In both cases, what looked to be overwhelming obstacles to Israel were completely removed from before them. These two men were held in the highest esteem as intercessors. Jeremiah 15:1 says, “Even though Moses and Samuel were to stand before Me, My heart would not be with this people;” God held them up as the ultimate intercessors.
How would you be known to God? Would you be considered a faithful and true prayer warrior? Do others see a visible outpouring of God’s Spirit as a result of your praying? We have a promise…Matthew 21:22…”And all things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.” Samuel believed it…Moses believed it…do you?
