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.

    April: To promise God---, they're already in Sin. God told us to ask: Be careful for nothing but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your request be known unto God. Philippians 4:6/ this is the confidence that we have in him that if we ask anything according to his will,he heareth us: if we know that he hear us---we have the petitions that we desire of Him. 1John 5:14-15

    I do remember reading in a prior book and other books throughout the bible, speaking on the part of promising something to God and or other people and if you break that promise it is considered a sin,it is better to not promise something with thy lios then to promise something and not follow through,father follows through his words,question is do we? I made a promise to God I am going to keep it!

    I have seen, so far, just one comment on the back pgs. - of 'deal making' with Gog: "Lord, if you will do this, I will do that." That will not work; God does not make deals; it's God's way or the hell way.

    Despite the discouragement words from Peninneh, Hannah used her Spiritul Instrucment which is prayer effectively and efficiently, another test came through the high priest, but Hannah was not discouraged because she was focused. Jesus told His disciples that "Howblt this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting. She got answer to her prayer. May God give us the spirit of prayer.
