1 Samuel 2:1-10

"There is none holy like the LORD; there is none besides you; there is no rock like our God” (v2).  Hannah’s prophetic exaltation (like Mary’s, see Luke 1) declared the wonderful character of God.  Her own experience had suddenly confirmed the truth: God does not favor the wealthy or powerful, as many people think, but instead “by Him actions are weighed” (v3), and in Him “the feeble bind on strength” (v4).  Hannah had experienced rejection and the judgment of others because she had no children, yet God loved her.  

“My heart exults in the Lord” (v1).  God wants to show His love and power in our own lives, so that like Hannah, we overflow with praise.
