My Heart Rejoices

Do you ever wonder why the Bible contains what it does?

God has always known exactly what we needed to have in written form.

The Bible reveals God’s character, His sovereignty, His power–in many different ways.

Each story in the Old Testament has a purpose for its inclusion.

Every account of Jesus and the lives of those devoted to Him in the New Testament has a purpose.

Through reading and with the help of Holy Spirit, we come to understand who God is and how much He loves us.

Take the story of Hannah, for example.

Have you ever yearned for something with all your heart?

Hannah did.

She wanted to be a mother, yet she was childless.

Have you ever taken your deepest concerns to God in prayer?

Hannah did.

She prayed earnestly for a child.

God knows what is best for us.

Trusting in that, we may ask for things that we feel are best, yet He may have a different plan.

There are times, however, that what we seek is completely in line with God’s best for us,

perhaps at even the time that we ask.

God granted Hannah a son–she named him Samuel.

 

 

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 besides you;
       there is no Rock like our God."

 — I Samuel 2:1,2

    Aw, this was a really good post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to create a really good article… but what can I say… I hesitate a whole lot and don’t manage to get nearly anything done.

    Surely your love is felt in the exchange. After all, you took the time to select the gift with them in mind, and you gave it freely.
