The Boy Who Heard God's Voice
Samuel!" called a voice one night. And Samuel, the young boy who lay
asleep, wakened at once. "Someone called my name," he thought,
and quickly he called back, "Here am I!" Then he rose and ran to
the bedside of an old man named Eli who was sleeping near by. "Here
am I!" he said again.
Eli told him he had not called. "I must have been dreaming,"
Samuel lay still on his bed again, the voice called as before,
"Samuel! Samuel!" And Samuel knew then that he had not been
dreaming. Once more he ran to Eli, saying, "Here am I!"
old man was surprised when Samuel came the second time. "I did not
call," said he. "Go back and lie down again."
the third time Samuel heard that voice, and he believed that surely Eli
was calling. But Eli said, "I have not called. It may be that you are
hearing God's voice. Return to your bed again, and if the voice calls, lie
still and listen to God's words."
