"The Lord came and stood there, calling as at the other times, 'Samuel! Samuel!'Then Samuel said, 'Speak, for your servant is listening.'” 1 Samuel 3:10 (NIV)
Throughout our walk with Christ the Lord calls us to go deeper and challenges us to grow everyday. In this text, the Lord was calling Samuel to be a prophet and to go share his word. Samuel did not think it was the Lord calling, for he was just a boy, but the Lord calls us all no matter our age. The disciples were in there teens to early 20's when Jesus called them. David was only around 17 when he put his life in Gods hands when he defeated the giant Goliath. Never think because you are young that the Lord can't use you. The Lord calls the youth for our energy, zealousness, and because we tend to be more receptive. He also calls us to reach our peers, we know them better than any other generation because we are with them everyday. So get plugged in so you can be fed, taught, and walking on the path God has destined for you. Always keep your heart open for when the Lord calls. Say, "Speak for your servant is listening".
