1 Samuel 2-3 - Sin Has Consequence; God Has a Plan - Midweek Prayer Meeting

The great hymn of faith from Hannah that we read in 1 Samuel 2:1-10 is immediately countered with lives of rebellion and unbelief that show us the desperate nature of Israel’s leadership crisis. Hannah’s declaration said God is incomparable. He knowledge should crush pride. His power reverses evil. His position gives Him all authority. He is always victorious, and His enemies always lose. Her life reflected these beliefs that she knew about God. It is said of Eli’s sons that, “they knew not the Lord.” This is clearly reflected in their actions and attitudes. In 1 Samuel 2:30, God says that He honors those that honor Him, and disgraces those that despise Him. This is the main lesson in chapter 2 and 3.
