Heavenly Father, We are so thankful for You! You are Jehovah-jirah, the One who desires to provide us with our greatest heart’s desires because of Your unfathomable love for us! We are so grateful for the opportunity to study Your Word and we marvel at how You have brought us all together. We ask that You would open our eyes and show us marvelous things in Your Word again this week. Help us to be not just hearers of Your Word but doers. Guide us, transform us, bring us together in unity and to You we will give all the glory and praise! In the precious name of Jesus we pray!
Hannah is one of my favorite characters in the Bible, for I think we all can easily relate to her and her situation. After all, who among us hasn’t found ourselves waiting or even longing for something that is beyond our control to obtain? It doesn’t have to be a child of our own; perhaps it’s a boyfriend or husband, a new job or promotion. Who of us haven’t also had to deal with adversaries that are always trying to antagonize and discourage us, or others who, despite loving us, just don’t understand what we’re going through?
Can you think of a time in your life when God made you wait? Or, perhaps you’re still waiting for deliverance. Whichever, Hannah demonstrates for us how best to handle the situation while we’re waiting.
We’ll be reading Hannah’s story in 1 Samuel 1- 2:10.
Memory Verse: 1 Samuel 2:1-2
“My heart rejoices in the Lord; in the Lord my horn is lifted high. My mouth boasts over my enemies, for I delight in your deliverance. There is no one holy like the Lord; there is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God.”
