Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

March 24 - Evening

"The boy Samuel ministered before the Lord under Eli. In those days the word of the Lord was rare;
 there were not many visions.

One night Eli, whose eyes were becoming so weak that he could barely see, was lying down in his usual place. The lamp of God had not yet gone out,and
Samuel was lying down in the house of the Lord,
where the ark of God was.

Then the Lord called Samuel.

Samuel answered, 'Here I am.' "

- First Samuel 3:1-4

God Breaks the Spiritual Famine with a Message of Judgment


When the Lord speaks in his tabernacle to Samuel he is NOT speaking to the attending priests, but instead speaks to the prophet. Samuel is given a word of rebuke and judgment for the negligent priesthood which had rejected his word. This priesthood will now be neglected and rejected by the Lord.

The word “vision” is the Hebrew word hazon which refers to revelation from God and the coming of his word. The prophet would receive the hazon, or revelation, and speak that received word of revelation to the people. Hazon, or “vision,” is a technical term for the revelation from God that came to men through a prophet. This word hazon appears in the scriptural titles of Isaiah, Obadiah and Nahum.

In Samuel’s youth it was infrequent for God to reveal his word and, thus, it was rare that the prophets had a word to speak. This was a time of spiritual famine. God withholding his word is a source of punishment that results in judgment on a people. Amos 8:11-12 predicts a time when God’s word would not be sent to the earth and people would face a period of suffering during a famine of the Word of God. Psalm 74:9 and Ezekiel 7:26 identify periods of spiritual famine.

  Christian Quote from Church History
“Most theists are deists most of the time, in practice if not in theory. They practice the absence of God instead of
the presence of God.”
