In 1 Samuel chapter 3, Samuel heard a voice speaking to him.  He went to Eli the priest and asked him what he wanted because he thought Eli was the one talking to him.  After three times of this happening, Eli knew that it was God speaking and told Samuel that the next time he heard the voice to say “Speak, LORD, for your servant hears.”  Samuel did as he was told and God spoke to him.  We will not be hearing God speak to us in that way, but He will speak to us thru His word.  Like Samuel, we have to let Him speak to us.  We have to study all of His written Word and make application of it into our own lives.
