Scripture reading for March 15th: 1 Samuel 2-5
Key Scriptures: 1st Samuel 1:27-28-2:2 “I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of Him. So now I give him to the Lord. For his whole life he will be given over to the Lord.” . . .”Then Hannah prayed and said: “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 beside You; . . .”
Hannah was barren and she sought the Lord for a son. She promised to give the son to the Lord for His service and dedicate him as a Nazirite. God heard her prayer and she followed through by bringing the child to the priest Eli. As she released her son to God’s service, she worshiped with a song of rejoicing!
Rejoicing in the Lord: God is faithful and hears and answers prayer! We also can rejoice in the Lord for who He is! “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious for anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.” (Philippians 4:4-6)
