Daily Devotional with Pastor Jon

April 4

Tomorrow about this time I will send thee a man out of the land of Benjamin, and thou shalt anoint him to be captain over my people Israel, that he may save my people out of the hand of the Philistines: for I have looked upon my people, because their cry is come unto me.

1 Samuel 9:16

The day previously, Samuel heard the Lord say, “Tomorrow a man is going to come - the one I have chosen to be the captain, the king of the nation.” I find it interesting that the Lord whispered in Samuel’s ear the day before this event took place - to let him know what was ahead. In 1 Samuel 8:21, we read that Samuel heard all the words of the people and he rehearsed them in the ears of the Lord. Those who whisper in the ears of the Lord will hear the Word whispered in their ear as well. I’m convinced that many times I don’t hear what the Lord wants to say in my ear because I haven’t first spoken in His ear. Samuel was a man who understood what it meant to pray without ceasing. As a result, the Lord whispered in his ear, telling him the man who would be king was on his way.
