1 Samuel

Chapter 1&2

Judges 21:25

In those days Israel had no king; everyone did as they saw fit.

Darkness is everywhere

I Samuel 1:15-16

15 “Not so, my lord,” Hannah replied, “I am a woman who is deeply troubled. I have not been drinking wine or beer; I was pouring out my soul to the Lord. 16 Do not take your servant for a wicked woman; I have been praying here out of my great anguish and grief.”

Darkness is not new

Genesis 1:2-3

2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. 3 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

Light is what we need

1 Samuel 1:25-28

25 When the bull had been sacrificed, they brought the boy to Eli, 26 and she said to him, “Pardon me, my lord. As surely as you live, I am the woman who stood here beside you praying to the Lord. 27 I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him. 28 So now I give him to the Lord. For his whole life he will be given over to the Lord.” And he worshiped the Lord there.

there is no Rock like our God.
