The Bible story of the young Samuel hearing God's voice is found in 1 Samuel chapter 3. Samuel was a young boy who had been placed in the care of the priest Eli. One night, while he was sleeping, he heard a voice calling his name. Thinking it was Eli, he went to him, but Eli told him he had not called. This happened two more times, and on the third time Eli realized that it was God who was calling Samuel. Eli instructed Samuel to respond the next time he heard the voice, and God spoke to Samuel and gave him a message.
