Wesley's Notes for 1 Samuel 1:28


1:28 Lent him - But not with a purpose to require him again. Whatever we give to God, may upon this account be said to be lent to him, that tho' we may not recall it, yet he will certainly repay it, to our unspeakable advantage. He worshipped - Not Eli, but young Samuel, who is spoken of in this and the foregoing verse, and who was capable of worshipping God in some sort, at least with external adoration.


Discussion for 1 Samuel 1

  • A disciple
    The nature of a bully is to abuse others in order to dominate them with cruelty and fear. The man or woman of God who walks in truth and speaks the truth to his or her neighbor, is then slandered and castigated by the immature and the selfish, who are unaccustomed to being corrected, and offended by wholesome teaching. Its not "religious oppression" to prod your brethren on to perfection!

    Verse 6: Peninnah bullied Hannah because she was jealous of her. This attitude is looked down upon here and it shows how Jehovah God views bullying.

    Four biblical steps we can learn from 1 Samuel 1
    1.She kept her promise to God
    2.She went to church
    3.She gave special offering - I Samuel 1 : 25
    4.She sang a Christian song 😃"There is none holy as the Lord there's none besides thee"
    Many of us we ask God to bless, but we don't keep our promise.
    Examples : God give a job and I will pay my tithe, do we pay it faithfully?

    I made a commitment to God and I believe he blessed me accordingly. Hannah made a commitment (vow) to God and he blessed her. Ps. 37:4 says 'delight thyself also in the Lord and he shall give you the desires of your heart'.
  • Art
    This is a woman (Hannah) who loves God with all her Heart, Soul and Mind ask our God for a request and because God believed her he granted her request..basically LOVE ALWAYS CONQUERS ALL
  • BSP
    Hannah's circumstances had not changed in verse 18, but her viewpoint is what changed. We can choose to focus on the problem or we can focus on positive things like Hannah.
