7 The Real-World God With Real-World Results

8 Birth of Samuel 1:2 Elkanah had two wives, Hannah and Peninnah. Peninnah had children, but Hannah did not. 1:6 So Peninnah would taunt Hannah and make fun of her because the Lord had kept her from having children. 1:7 Hannah would be reduced to tears and would not even eat!

9 Birth of Samuel 1:7 “Why are you crying, Hannah?” Elkanah would ask. “Why aren’t you eating? Why be downhearted just because you have no children? You have me— isn’t that better than having ten sons?”

10 Birth of Samuel 1:10 Hannah was in deep anguish, crying bitterly as she prayed to the Lord. 1:11 And she made this vow: “O Lord of Heaven's Armies, if you will look upon my sorrow and answer my prayer and give me a son, then I will give him back to you. He will be yours for his entire lifetime, and as a sign that he has been dedicated to the Lord, his hair will never be cut.”

11 Birth of Samuel 1:11 And she made this vow: “O Lord of Heaven's Armies, if you will look upon my sorrow and answer my prayer and give me a son, then I will give him back to you...” So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor. Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you. 1 Peter 5:6-7

12 Birth of Samuel 1:11 …Eli said, “go in peace! May the God of Israel grant the request you have asked of him.” “Oh, thank you, sir!” she exclaimed. Then she went back and began to eat again, and she was no longer sad. Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7

13 Birth of Samuel 1:20 …in due time she gave birth to a son. She named him Samuel, for she said, “I asked the Lord for him.”

14 Birth of Samuel 1:22 She said to her husband, "After the boy is weaned, I will take him and present him before the Lord, and he will live there always.“ 2:11 …the boy ministered before the Lord under Eli the priest “Whatever you think is best,” Elkanah agreed. 1 Samuel 1:23

15 Eli’s House Now the sons of Eli were scoundrels who had no respect for the Lord or for their duties as priests… So the sin of these young men was very serious in the Lord’s sight, for they treated the Lord’s offerings with contempt. 1 Samuel 2:12-13,17 1. Thieves & Scoundrels  (“In the name of God…”)

16 Eli’s House 2:22 Now Eli, who was very old, heard about everything his sons were doing to all Israel and how they slept with the women who served at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting.

17 Eli’s House 2:23 So he said to them, “Why do you do such things? I hear from all the people about these wicked deeds of yours.”

18 Eli’s House "No, my sons; for the report is not good which I hear the Lord's people circulating. 1 Samuel 2:24 (NASB) Proverbs 13:24 If you refuse to discipline your children, it proves you don’t love them; if you love your children, you will be prompt to discipline them. Proverbs 13:24 If you refuse to discipline your children, it proves you don’t love them; if you love your children, you will be prompt to discipline them.

19 Eli’s House 2:27-29 One day a man of God came to Eli and gave him this message from the Lord: “…Why do you give your sons more honor than you give me?”

20 Eli’s House 2:27-29 For you and they have become fat from the best offerings of my people Israel!

21 Eli’s House 1 Samuel 2:31 (NLT) The time is coming when I will put an end to your family, so it will no longer serve as my priests. All the members of your family will die before their time. None will reach old age. 2:34 And to prove that what I have said will come true, I will cause your two sons, Hophni and Phinehas, to die on the same day!
