The Word and God

When Samuel, the prophet of the Lord was a young boy, the Bible says that “Samuel did not yet know the LORD, neither was the word of the LORD yet revealed unto him” (I Sam.3:7). A little while later in verse twenty one it says, “And the LORD appeared again in Shiloh: for the LORD revealed Himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the word of the LORD.” In these two verses it is very obvious that when God chose to reveal Himself that He used His word. Would you like to have the Lord revealed unto you? Would you like to see Jesus more clearly? Do you want to know what God wants you to know? Are you looking for God but not searching for Him in the scriptures? Jesus is called the Word in John 1:1. If you want to see Jesus, know Jesus and be like Jesus then get in the Word that tells all we are to know about Jesus. You cannot separate God from His Word. Many today are seeking a relationship with God without opening up the Word of God. This is an impossibility. To hear from God and to have Him revealed unto you, you must open His word. “For the LORD revealed Himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the word of the Lord.”
