1 Samuel 1 vs
17》》” Then Eli answered and said, “Go in peace, and the God of Israel grant your petition which you have asked of Him.”》》NKJV》
BELOVED, always remember that when we go through challenges, we should never blame God; rather we should find out what God expects us to do about that situation. God isn’t part of the problem, but He cares for you (1 Peter 5:7). In the account that leads to our focal text, Hannah exhibited some particular lifestyle towards her challenge that resulted to her miracle. First, Hannah poured out her heart before God, not before her rival. *When you go through challenges, you must first talk to your heavenly Father about it (James 5:13). Don’t rely on people to solve the problems that only God can solve.*
Secondly, Hannah used to go to Shiloh every year even though her petition had not been granted (1 Sam 1:7). Cherished one, never allow what you go through to take you away from God’s presence. His presence is golden and irreplaceable. Also, she didn’t attack her rival but “attacked” the Lord who could give her a child. Most times, people want to fight spiritual battles with physical weapons and they worsen things.* Hannah fought it in the spirit through prayer. Moreover, she responded politely to the priest, Eli even though the Priest perceived her wrongly as a drunkard; She didn’t respond rudely to the man of God (1 Sam 1:14,15).
Beloved, your attitude to a man of God matters in life. Whether you believe it or not, they are God’s chosen mouthpiece with special grace. Your honour to them can release a miracle. Lastly, Hannah received the word that came from the priest in faith as final solution to her situation . And she reacted positively to it by eating and rejoicing instead of continuing in sorrow (1 Sam 1:17,18). Beloved, worry and sorrow won’t deliver any good thing after you have prayed to God. If you believed God answered your request then you maintain a faith attitude of joy, love, positive confessions, not the opposites. Learn to respond differently. The rich grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
My paths shine brighter and brighter unto a perfect daylight. I press on in faith, prayer and obedience. I enjoy the miraculous. I refuse to doubt the One who can answer my prayer. He loves me and supplies all my needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Hallelujah!

Pray that God’s Spirit will help you with stability to respond differently in times of challenges.
