Tell it to God

Greetings in Jesus name

1 Samuel 1 12 As she kept on praying to the Lord, Eli observed her mouth. 13 Hannah was praying in her heart, and her lips were moving but her voice was not heard. Eli thought she was drunk

This is a sad story with a happy ending. Hannah and Peninnah were married to one husband. Hannah was barren and therefore Peninnah made fun of her. The Bible refers to Peninnah as Hannar’s rival because of the manner in which she treated her. The Bible says Hannah’s husband Elkanah loved her the most. His love however did not take away her sadness, pain, and depression. The reality is nobody understood Hannah’s pain. What we know though is the extent to which her pain pushed her. She poured her heart to God. God wiped her tears away and blessed her with a son.

The hand of the Lord is witnessed in situations where your ability and understanding cease. In Luke 8:43 a story is told about a woman who constantly suffered from flow of blood for 12 years. She used up all her money attending different specialist but she could not be cured. Out of her desperation she pushed through the crowds so she could touch Jesus hem. She immediately received her healing.

How bad is your situation? How deep is your wound? How embarrassing is your problem. How high is your wave? What do people say about your situation? Do you have a solution? Reach out to God. Pour your heart to God, tell Him everything. Jesus calmed the storm in the ocean (Psalm 107:29) he will calm your storm but He is waiting for you to tell Him all.

God bless you
