Tonight we will be examining the life of Samuel.
As a young boy Samuel was given to the service of God by his mother Hannah. She had not been able to have a child by her husband Elkanah, which caused her much grief. On visiting Shiloh where the tabernacle, or house of God was, she made this a matter of prayer to God, showing great faith. God heard the prayer and in process of time after she had returned with her husband to their home town of Ramah, the baby was born. He was a child promised by God, who would carry out the Lord's work in the furtherance of His dealings with Israel. The baby was named Samuel, which means `Asked of God', as Hannah said 'Because I have asked for him from the LORD.' [1 Samuel 1.20 NKJV] Some time later, when the child was old enough, she returned to Shiloh at the time of the yearly sacrifice taking Samuel with her. She went to the tabernacle to Eli the priest, who had seen her praying to God previously, and said `...I am the woman who stood by you here, praying to the LORD. For this child I prayed, and the LORD has granted me my petition which I asked of him. Therefore I also have lent him to the LORD; as long as he lives he shall be lent to the LORD.' [1 Samuel 1. 26-28 NKJV]
It's good to talk.
