I can remember vividly when I heard God speak to me. It was when He called me out of sin and when He called me as a Prophet of God.
Both times I heard Him speaking to me out loud and I looked around, and no one was there. He did not stop there, but like Samuel He spoke to me again until I responded to the call!
As I was sleeping the other day, I heard a voice in the form of my husband calling out to me and I woke up, looking around and he was not there! This voice was so loud and angelic, that I quickly woke up like Samuel did!
Unlike Elijah who heard a still, small quiet voice, this voice was like unto the one Samuel heard, as though someone was calling from a distance, as though an echo was in the room.
I could hear them calling loud enough for me to look around to give a response!
I believe the LORD is making a clarion call to many in this season and many are hearing God clearly, but they are like unto Samuel and they are not understanding the details of that call.
But if you will continue on to know and to follow God, He will begin to unfold to you the details and the specifics of what He is calling you to do and to know what He wants from you in this season.
As you can see, Samuel was indeed called to be a prophet of God, but he didn’t fully understand the call upon his life. God always has either a mentor whom He has called to help you birth what He has placed on the inside of you, or He can train you directly himself and if He brought you to the call, it is His responsibility to make sure what He has placed on the inside of you, will not be aborted in this season by the enemy.
This is why Samuel went to a more seasoned man of God: Eli, who gave him sound wisdom and advice.
Will everyone be able to help you? Of course not, but those who are led by the spirit of God are the Sons of God.
“So, the LORD called Samuel: and he answered, Here am I. 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.
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. Now Samuel did not yet know the LORD, neither was the word of the LORD yet revealed unto him. So, as you can see, Samuel didn’t have the knowledge he needed to understand what the spirit was doing and trying to reveal unto him so I believe this is why God had Eli their for such a time as this to push Samuel into his destiny and the purpose God had for his life in this particular season.
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,”1 Samuel 3:4-8.
Don’t be at all surprised if God will send someone who will be able to see and to discern your destiny and purpose even before it is revealed unto you in this season just as he did Samuel.
“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. And the LORD came, and stood, and called as at other times, Samuel, Samuel. Then Samuel answered, Speak; for thy servant heareth. However, when Samuel finally accepted the call the LORD began to unfold what it was that he wanted to reveal unto him and he was no longer in the dark but it was not until he answered the call and accepted the responsibility that God spoke to him what it was that he wanted from him. Tell somebody, “ANSWER THE CALL!”
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. 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. 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. 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,” 1 Samuel 3:9-14.
Samuel’s first assignment was to bring a direct word of judgment to the one that had pushed him into his destiny!
What a hard thing this must have been for him, but I believe God wanted Samuel to know that if he was ever to be his mouth piece he could not fear what man would do unto him so God wanted to test his loyalty, and because Eli was a seasoned man of God he told Samuel I know God has spoken something for you to tell me hide it not!
God is coming in this season with a Word from those whom He is calling to speak a fresh and a direct word from him in this season and he is no respect of person and those that it is for will know that a prophet is indeed among you because he will not let one of his words fall to the ground or return unto him void!
Get ready, God is going to do a new thing and all the ears that hear, will begin to tingle!
