God’s plan centers on relationship. We discover His plan for us in relationship with Him. But where do we start?
Now Samuel did not yet know the Lord, nor had the word of the Lord yet been revealed to him.
He made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His kind intention which He purposed in Him
The prophet Samuel gives us a great example in 1 Samuel chapter 3. The first times God tried to speak to Samuel, he didn’t recognize God’s voice. He grew over time in how he listened to God. But later, Samuel learned to hear God speak. The Lord came and stood there, calling as at the other times, “Samuel! Samuel!” Then Samuel said, “Speak, for your servant is listening.” And Samuel heard God’s voice.
Take a moment and try listening to God on how He has uniquely gifted you. Listen to God in prayer on this question: how is God using your gifts to touch others?
