Today’s reading: 1 Samuel 9:1-27

Today we get our first glimpse of Saul, a handsome and tall young man whom God is about to anoint as the first king of Israel. But what captured my attention in this chapter wasn’t Saul–it was Samuel. I was struck by Samuel’s relationship with God. Samuel is now an old man, and his walk with God is strong. He continues to seek God, listen intently to Him and then precisely follow every instruction he receives. What an inspiring example.

What does your relationship with God look like? Is it your daily practice to seek, listen to and follow God? How have you seen your relationship with God change and grow over time? Tami
