Still discussing on lessons to leam from Hannah, It would be incomplete If we ignore the humility of Hannah. Humility is a Christlike virtue. God gives grace, lifting, and fulfillment to the humble. This godly quality in the life of Hannah was proved and brought to the fore when Priest Ell reprimanded her while she was praying In Shiloh. The priest, who taught that he was drunk, made comments that would have infuriated her. Hannah took the comment humbly and in good spirit.
She patiently explained to the aged priest that she was only pouring her heart to God in prayer. The priest saw his mistake and prayed for her. God honoured the prayer and opened her womb. Beloved, avoid pride like a plague it has ruined many destinies and cut them off from their destiny helpers, Put on the garment of humility and you will begin to enjoy the favour of God and of all men.
Hannah fulfilled her vow to God. One of the reasons some people are having strange problems and battles is that they have refused to pay the vow they made. God has records of your vows and pledges. Once you make a vow, you are duty-bound to pay it. Ensure you do so as soon as possible. The Bible says that it is better not to make a vow than to make one and not fulfil it. Failure to pay your vow will attract negative consequences. Don’t make vows rashly or foolishly. God is a judge of our motives and intentions.
Hannah’s faithfulness in giving Samuel to God to serve Him all his life attracted bigger bundles of testimonies to her life. She had six more children. Her faithfulness turned the woman once called barren to a mother of glorious children, including one of the greatest prophets in Israel.
As a child of God, when you seek His face on prayer concerning any challenge, He will gve you the key or strategy to solve the problem. Yours may or may not be a vow. I remember a man who had a challenge in his career and the Lord led him to increase his tithe to 20%. The problem was miraculously solved and his desire was granted. Our God is a strategist and solution provider. Taste and see that the Lord is good.
