Communing with God in the night

God’s gentle reassurance blessed me with a peace that banished all my fears.

When I was a child, my favorite Bible story was about the prophet Samuel. As a young boy, he heard God calling his name when he lay down to sleep. At first he thought it was Eli, the priest of the temple where he lived and was in service to God, and went to see what he wanted. But Eli realized it was God calling the child and advised Samuel to respond, “Speak, Lord; for thy servant heareth” (I Samuel 3:9). 

So Samuel went back to bed, and the next time he heard God call him, he answered as Eli had directed. Then and for many years to come, God revealed to Samuel knowledge that benefited and led the children of Israel.

How do we free ourselves from judging?
