Faith Hall of Fame (9)

Another person mentioned in Hebrews 11:32 is Samuel.Samuel had faith in God even when he was a young boy.
One night, Samuel heard someone call his name several times. Samuel thought that Eli, the priest, was calling him. But Eli said, “Go to bed. If he calls you again, say, ‘Speak, Lord. I am your servant and I am listening’” (verse 9b). Samuel obeyed and received a special message from God.
Samuel grew up and became a prophet and judge of Israel. God blessed Samuel because of his faith. Samuel was the person who set apart Saul and David to be kings of Israel. Samuel faithfully served God for many years.
God still speaks to us today. Sometimes He speaks through His Word, the Bible. Other times He may speak through other Christians. We should always be ready to accept God’s message and do what He wants us to do. Be sure that you pay attention to God today!
