This Sunday: “The Quiet Outworking of the Will of God”
This Sunday we are going to look at a well-known narrative in 1 Samuel 3, in which God calls to Samuel in the middle of the night. If you grew up in church it’s likely you’ve heard this story at least once—maybe you’ve even seen it acted out on a flannelgraph! But this narrative is so much more than a cool story about a boy being awakened from sleep by the voice of God, confused about who’s saying his name. It speaks to us clearly and powerfully about the will of God, not only his hidden will but also his revealed will for his people.
My prayer is that we will be encouraged as we behold the nature and character of God and his undeniable sovereignty in bringing all things about for the good of his people and the exaltation of his Son. If you’ve ever wondered, “What is God’s will for me?” then I think you will have a better grasp of how to go about finding the answer this Sunday.
I look forward to sitting under God’s Word with you this Sunday!
