MEMORY VERSE: “And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it,…” – Isaiah 30:21a (KJV)

BIBLE TEXT: 1 Samuel 3:4-10 (KJV)

4 That the Lord called Samuel: and he answered, Here am I.

5 And he ran unto Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou calledst me. And he said, I called not; lie down again. And he went and lay down.

6 And the Lord called yet again, Samuel. And Samuel arose and went to Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou didst call me. And he answered, I called not, my son; lie down again.

7 Now Samuel did not yet know the Lord, neither was the word of the Lord yet revealed unto him.

8 And the Lord called Samuel again the third time. And he arose and went to Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou didst call me. And Eli perceived that the Lord had called the child.

9 Therefore Eli said unto Samuel, Go, lie down: and it shall be, if he call thee, that thou shalt say, Speak, Lord; for thy servant heareth. So Samuel went and lay down in his place.

10 And the Lord came, and stood, and called as at other times, Samuel, Samuel. Then Samuel answered, Speak; for thy servant heareth.

LESSON INTRODUCTION: It is very important for every believer to hear from God. The relationship between parents and children should be the kind of relationship between God and believers. Parents talk to their children, their children hear and respond. The truth is that the Almighty God is always speaking but unfortunately, our minds are too crowded to hear His voice.

LESSON AIM: To make believers understand what it takes to hear from the Almighty God.

TEACHING OBJECTIVES: At the end of the lesson, members should be able to know:

  • who can hear from God.
  • how to hear God.

TEXT REVIEW: 1 Samuel 3:4-10

a. Be careful with the assignment God has given you, it can be withdrawn.
b. To every useful vessel, there is a worthy replacement to take over in case he misses out.
c. Arrogance and carelessness are the bane to a carefree vessel.
d. In that little state you are, you can be selected for greater assignment.

LESSON INTRODUCTION: In our Bible reading for today, we have three entities involved;

  • The Almighty.
  • Eli -The Priest and
  • Samuel – The young Lad.

God chooses to speak to anyone, anytime and anywhere. He does not need anyone’s permission. Samuel was not expecting God to come and talk to him, but He came, He did not recognise God’s voice, he mistook the voice of God for Eli’s voice. Saul of Tarsus did not expect Jesus to stop him on his way to Damascus.


Hearing the voice of God follows an intimate relationship with Him. From our Bible reading for today, we saw that initially, Samuel did not recognize the voice of God but in the process of time, he grew in his relationship with God and he was able to hear Him expressly. Therefore, who are those that can hear from God?

i. Those who desire to hear God.
ii. Those who read, study and meditate on the Word of God regularly – Rom. 10:17; Joshua 1:8 and Psalm 1:1-3.
iii. Those who hate sin and love righteousness – Hebrews 1:9.
iv. Those who love to fellowship with the Holy Spirit – Romans 8:14.
v. Those who love to be still before God- Psalms 85:5.
vi. Those who obey His commands.
vii. Those who are humble and teachable – James 4: 10; 1 Peter 5:5.
viii. Those who have faith in God- Hebrews 11:6.


  • You must have a relationship with God.
  • Hunger and thirst for Him – Matt.5:6; Psalms 42:1.
  • Read and study the Word of God – II Timothy 2: 15.
  • Position yourself like Samuel to be still before Him.
  • Be opened because God can speak in diverse ways.
  • Through prayer and fasting – Mark 9:29.

ACTIVITY: Discuss those that heard God in the Bible and their lifestyle

CONCLUSION: The life of a believer becomes easier when they hear from God. There will be no anxiety because the Word of God brings peace.


  1. Father, please remove everything hindering us from hearing You as a church.
  2. Father, make us Your special vessel for special use.
  3. Lord, please disconnect us from every unprofitable alliance.
  4. Father, please sanctify our ears to hear and eyes to see divine mysteries.
  5. Father, help Daddy and Mummy G.0. to continually hear from You.
  6. Your personal request.
