In 1 Samuel 3, God calls out to Samuel in the middle of the night, but Samuel thinks that it's someone else who is calling him. So Samuel runs to the closest person, a priest named Eli, to see what he wants.
This happens three different times before Eli realizes who is calling Samuel. Eli realizes that it is God who is speaking. So he tells Samuel to say, "Speak, Lord. Your servant is listening" the next time he hears the voice.
God did not go silent after this encounter with Samuel. God still speaks today. But the question is: Are we listening?
Throughout the month of August, we will let God speak and we will listen to what God has to say to us about who God is, who we are, and where we're headed.
