*Scripture Treasure.*

1 Sam 1:10-12 *And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed unto the Lord, and wept sore.*

*And she vowed a vow, and said, O Lord of hosts, if thou wilt indeed look on the affliction of thine handmaid, and remember me, and not forget thine handmaid, but wilt give unto thine handmaid a man child, then I will give him unto the Lord all the days of his life, and there shall no razor come upon his head.*

*And it came to pass, as she continued praying before the Lord, that Eli marked her mouth.*

*Insight and Highlight.*

Our tears are never so real as when they receive God's answer.

*Scripture Commentaries.*

For the Christian, when trouble comes, the urge to fast and pray comes to us first.

This is what is expected of us, but it must be done with understanding.

We often take this spiritual exercise first, disregarding what is needful of us to do by God's directives.

The emotions that come with prayers of desperation can not be overemphasized.

The motive behind our prayers to God matters to Him more than our prayers or the emotions that accompany such prayers.

God is not as moved by our emotions as much, we think.

Hannah's faith was at its most tested

Her faith was never so real as when it demanded something painful from her.

The pain was her barreness, and what the pain took from her was her tears.

Her tears moved God.

Her tears were never so real until they received God's answer.

Whereas some people pray with tears, but their tears do not move God. Their tears are their own way of trying to whip up God's sympathy, Deut 1:45 *And ye returned and wept before the Lord; but the Lord would not hearken to your voice, nor give ear unto you.*

Let us always remember that our tears will move God only if we do not regard iniquity in our heart.

*Remorse corner.*

John 9:31 *We know that God does not listen to sinners, but He does listen to the one who worships Him and does His will.*

*Call to Word action.*

Job 27:8-9 *For what is the hope of the hypocrite, though he hath gained, when God taketh away his soul?*

*Will God hear his cry when trouble cometh upon him?*

*The Christian clarion duty.*

Psalm 66:18 *If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:*


Lord, let me not regard iniquity in my heart when l cry unto You.

Let my tears turn to tears of joy, in Jesus name.

Good morning all, and have a blessed day today.

God bless you.
