Eli was a priest of God, yet it seems he was unfamiliar with God's voice. When God called to the boy Samuel, Eli didn't recognize that it was God calling. (1 Sam.4-7) I'm sure Eli didn't hear the voice as it called out to Samuel, but as a priest, shouldn't he have recognized that it was God calling?
Are you familiar with God's voice? When He calls does He have to identify himself or will "it's me" work? I want to be so close to God that I immediately recognize His voice when He speaks. I want to be able to say, "I know Him."
Do you have an "it's me" relationship with God?
