Listening for the "still small voice"

All through the Bible are accounts of how the prophets and other holy men communed with God, heard His voice, and obediently did as they were bidden. Among the many passages, perhaps none makes a more spiritual appeal, when read to-day, than that of the boy Samuel, who, after hearing his name called repeatedly, replied, "Speak; for thy servant heareth."

It is recorded, however, that before this great event in the career of Samuel took place, he "grew on, and was in favour both with the Lord, and also with men." His ministering to the Lord before Eli undoubtedly attuned him to receive the divine message; and his receptivity was such that when the call came, he was ready to receive the spiritual gift of God.
