1 Samuel 1

October 28, 2019

1 Samuel 1:4-11

Whenever Elkanah offered a sacrifice, he always gave portions of the meat to his wife Peninnah and to each of her sons and daughters. But he gave a double[b] portion to Hannah, for he loved her even though the Lord had kept her from conceiving. Her rival would taunt her severely just to provoke her, because the Lord had kept Hannah from conceiving. Year after year, when she went up to the Lord’s house, her rival taunted her in this way. Hannah would weep and would not eat. “Hannah, why are you crying?” her husband Elkanah would ask. “Why won’t you eat? Why are you troubled? Am I not better to you than ten sons?”

On one occasion, Hannah got up after they ate and drank at Shiloh.[c] The priest Eli was sitting on a chair by the doorpost of the Lord’s temple. 10 Deeply hurt, Hannah prayed to the Lord and wept with many tears. 11 Making a vow, she pleaded, “Lord of Armies, if you will take notice of your servant’s affliction, remember and not forget me, and give your servant a son,[d] I will give him to the Lord all the days of his life, and his hair will never be cut.

 

 

 

12 As she kept on praying to the Lord, Eli observed her mouth. 13 Hannah was praying in her heart, and her lips were moving but her voice was not heard. Eli thought she was drunk 14 and said to her, “How long are you going to stay drunk? Put away your wine.”

12 While she continued praying in the Lord’s presence, Eli watched her mouth. 13 Hannah was praying silently,[f] and though her lips were moving, her voice could not be heard. Eli thought she was drunk 14 and said to her, “How long are you going to be drunk? Get rid of your wine!”

15 “No, my lord,” Hannah replied. “I am a woman with a broken heart. I haven’t had any wine or beer; I’ve been pouring out my heart before the Lord. 16 Don’t think of me as a wicked woman; I’ve been praying from the depth of my anguish and resentment.”

 

 

 

 

Romans 8:26-27

26 In the same way the Spirit also helps us in our weakness, because we do not know what to pray for as we should, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us[h] with unspoken groanings. 27 And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because he intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.

What this shows us is that God wants our grief, our troubles, our heart break. God wants us to give them to Him.

 

 

Romans 8:28 28 We know that all things work together[i] for the good[j] of those who love God, who are called according to his purpose.

 

 

 

 

17 Eli responded, “Go in peace, and may the God of Israel grant the request you’ve made of him.”

 

18 “May your servant find favor with you,” she replied. Then Hannah went on her way; she ate and no longer looked despondent.

 

 

11 Making a vow, she pleaded, “Lord of Armies, if you will take notice of your servant’s affliction, remember and not forget me, and give your servant a son,[d] I will give him to the Lord all the days of his life, and his hair will never be cut.

 

 

19 The next morning Elkanah and Hannah got up early to worship before the Lord. Afterward, they returned home to Ramah. Then Elkanah was intimate with his wife Hannah, and the Lord remembered her.

 

Romans 8: 27b because he intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.28 We know that all things work together[i] for the good[j] of those who love God, who are called according to his purpose.

 

To the Will of God….it is God Will to bless you His way, not your way. Now if it is in His will, The bible says we have not because we ask not.

We may not have something because we have not given it to Him, and asked.

 

20 After some time,

 

 

Jeremiah 29: 11 For I know the plans I have for you”—this is the Lord’s declaration—“plans for your well-being, not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. 12 You will call to me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 

 

 

 

20 After some time,[h] Hannah conceived and gave birth to a son. She named him Samuel,[i] because she said, “I requested him from the Lord.”

21 When Elkanah and all his household went up to make the annual sacrifice and his vow offering to the Lord, 22 Hannah did not go and explained to her husband, “After the child is weaned, I’ll take him to appear in the Lord’s presence and to stay there permanently.”

 

28 I now give the boy to the Lord. For as long as he lives, he is given to the Lord.” Then he[o] worshiped the Lord there.[p]

 

 

 

1 Samuel 221 The Lord paid attention to Hannah’s need, and she conceived and gave birth to three sons and two daughters. Meanwhile, the boy Samuel grew up in the presence of the Lord.
