Teaching Children About Bible Miracles – God Calls Samuel To Be His Prophet

Samuel and Eli

Teaching children about the Bible miracles is important because it helps them to see how nothing is impossible for God.  If God can do miracles in the Bible, He can do them in our children’s lives today.  Here is an easy way to do that interactively.

Today let’s focus on a Bible miracle from the book of 1 Samuel:  God calls Samuel to be His Prophet (1 Samuel 3)

Hannah gave Samuel to the High Priest Eli to serve him.  While Samuel was sleeping, the Lord spoke to Samuel.  Samuel thought it was Eli speaking to him and went to Eli to ask him what he wanted.  3x this happened.

Ask the children…

What did Eli tell Samuel to do when God called out to him again?

“So he said to Samuel, ‘Go and lie down again, and if someone calls again, say, ‘Speak, LORD, your servant is listening.’  So Samuel went back to bed.”  (1 Samuel 3:9)

How did God use Samuel and how did the people look at Samuel?

“As Samuel grew up, the LORD was with him, and everything Samuel said proved to be reliable. And all Israel, from Dan in the north to Beersheba in the south, knew that Samuel was confirmed as a prophet of the LORD.”  (1 Samuel 3:19, 20)

God raised up Samuel to speak to the people for Him.  God continues to speak to us today through His word and through His Spirit.  He wants us to share with others what He is saying.

Now you can see how Bible miracles are God’s way of blessing the world.  Glory to Him!!!
