The Right Perception

Here's a neat tidbit from the story of Samuel and Eli. If you remember, God spoke to Samuel several times, but he kept thinking it was Eli calling him. Finally in 1 Samuel 3:8:

"Then Eli perceived that the LORD had called the boy."

After that, Eli told Samuel to answer the Lord's voice...and when he did, God used him for great things.

What I hadn't seen before was that for Samuel, it took someone to perceive that God had called him.

Just another good reason to keep our hearts open--God calls young people! And sometimes they just need someone to perceive that God can use them for great things.
