Hannah's heart rejoiced, not in Samuel, but in the Lord. She looks beyond the gift of a son, and praises the Giver who answered her prayer. She rejoiced in the salvation of the Lord. Praise God no matter what your circumstances are. Let the Lord be your rock, or foundation, for your life. When you base your life upon the rock that is God, your faith will be unshakable in all circumstances.
Are we rich?
Yes, we are rich in faith. Praise the Lord for what he has done and will do in your life. Trust him in the same way that Hannah trusted him.
God Chooses Differently Than Man
He respects not man's wisdom or fancied excellencies, but chooses those whom the world accounts foolish, teaching them to feel their guilt, and to value his free and precious salvation. adapted from Matthew Henry's Bible Commentary
