Text: I Sam 1:1-20, I Sam 16:1-13
El-kannah ……………… means acquired God
Peninnah ……………… Costly pearl
Hannah ……………… Grace, gracious, favour

Ideally the name of Hannah comes first but because of the circumstances the writer put her name in the 2nd position.
The order was changed because of what she did not have. They forgot that, weeping may endure for night but joy cometh in the morning. Look:
… Life is not about what you do not have now, its about God that you have
.
… Life is not about your height, its about the Most High God.
… Life is not all about the colour of your skin, its all about your skull and  your skill.
Even her husband believes she is fruitless and barren.(In I Sam 1:8 he said … Am I not better than 10 sons).
You see, I want you to disregard people’s opinion. The cheapest thing in life is not one type of cloth or shoes, it is opinion. WHY?
Everybody has it but one interesting thing is that its not binding on you, until you agree with it. The Civil war going on in Hannah family was terrible.
Penninah was taunting her. … Hannah can’t rebuke any of the kids.
… Madam Grace whose life is not gracious.
Even in Church she had problems.
… Her name was on everybody’s lips. Don’t you know her that short woman who has no kids?
… That fat girl always going out for altar call.
… Hannah, the barren woman. They were calling her the name God didn’t give to her.
Any name God has not given you is cancelled in JESUS NAME.
V 12:
Even in the church they were marking her mouth. Don’t worry about people marking your month in the church, let them say anything they like, this is not your end. Your story has just begun.This is just the beginning!

Thank God Hannah did not agree with people’s opinion. She continued going to the temple.
… She was never tired.
… Even the pastor misunderstood her. But she didn’t run away.
She new that the fact she didn’t have today does not mean she will never have.

Look at David
The conclusion and the opinion were not relevant, not important. He was abandoned and forgotten. When everybody was made to appear he was forgotten.
7 children were ‘interviewed’ and the seven were rejected. Every one striving for your position in destiny will be rejected.
Then they said okay No 8 is in the bush. David was the last but he is in No 8. Every number eight is a new beginning, every no 8 is number 1.
Back to Hannah:
Then a day came when God answered by fire. Sorry, God can answer by anything, it may be by water, or by rain, by storm or by war or rumor of war.
THEN ELI DECLARE: THE GOD OF ISRAEL GRANT THEE THY PETITION.
I DECLARE… THE GOD OF THIS COMMISSION THAT MAKES MEN TO SMILE WILL ANSWER YOUR PRAYER.
In verse 11
She gave before she was attended to.There are two types of giving when it comes to receiving your miracle:
Pre miracle giving ……………… Miracle seed or sacrifice
Post miracle giving ………………Vow

What are you believing God for, it is your Turn!
