God’s Prophet Established
So Samuel grew, and the Lord was with him and let none of his words fall to the ground. And all Israel from Dan to Beersheba knew that Samuel had been established as a prophet of the Lord. Then the Lord appeared again in Shiloh. For the Lord revealed Himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the word of the Lord.
1 Samuel 3:19-21
God was with Samuel; He did not let any of His words fall––fail. God began to spread His Word in the land of Israel. It had traveled about 150 miles from Dan to Beersheba. Samuel was promoted by the Lord; he had not promoted himself. Samuel was just growing in the Lord, and God began doing a tremendous work in his life. Everyone knew and recognized that God had called Samuel to become His prophet.
The term, by the word of the Lord, was used every time God called someone to become one of His prophets. It was always by the word of the Lord that a prophet was given God’s message to be shared with others. God always instructed the prophets that they were to take God’s word––His message––to His people. Why? God loves the people.
The same is with all of us. God loves us. He has given to us His Word. Remember, Jesus prayed and said to the Father:
“For I have given to them the words which You have given Me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came forth from You; and they have believed that You sent Me” (John 17:8).
Moses spoke of a coming Prophet. Jesus is God’s Prophet. Have you listened and heeded His Gospel message?
"Moses said, 'THE LORD GOD WILL RAISE UP FOR YOU A PROPHET LIKE ME FROM YOUR BRETHREN; TO HIM YOU SHALL GIVE HEED to everything He says to you.’ ”
