Miracles Still Happen (1 Samuel 1:9-28)Tommy Boring, October 28, 2018
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
God does the extraordinary. He is not ordinary. There are a lot of prosperity speaking about as long as you do for God, He will do whatever you want. That teaching is unbiblical and is the furthest thing from the truth. God does what He wants when He wants to based upon only the future that He knows.
God is still in the miracle business. Four points
Sincere desire, 1 Sam 1:11; Hannah asked a particular thing. A single male child that she would give back to God. How many times when the miracle happens we put our hands around it and claim the miracle and not whom gave it?
Believe the giver, 1 Sam 1:18, Heb 11:6; we are to believe that He is and He will. With God all things are possible thru faith. We do not know the will of God.
Have patience, 1 Sam 1:19-23, when the miracle finally shows up often the vow is forgotten. It's better to not make a vow than to make it and then break it.
Must be obedient, 1 Sam 1:25-28; if you're disobedience to God then He will not bless.
At times, one miracle will usually lead to another miracle but one must stick with it.

1 Samuel 1:9-28
9So Hannah rose up after they had eaten in Shiloh, and after they had drunk. Now Eli the priest sat upon a seat by a post of the temple of the LORD. 10And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed unto the LORD, and wept sore. 11And she vowed a vow, and said, O LORD of hosts, if thou wilt indeed look on the affliction of thine handmaid, and remember me, and not forget thine handmaid, but wilt give unto thine handmaid a man child, then I will give him unto the LORD all the days of his life, and there shall no rasor come upon his head. 12And it came to pass, as she continued praying before the LORD, that Eli marked her mouth. 13Now Hannah, she spake in her heart; only her lips moved, but her voice was not heard: therefore Eli thought she had been drunken. 14And Eli said unto her, How long wilt thou be drunken? put away thy wine from thee. 15And Hannah answered and said, No, my lord, I am a woman of a sorrowful spirit: I have drunk neither wine nor strong drink, but have poured out my soul before the LORD. 16Count not thine handmaid for a daughter of Belial: for out of the abundance of my complaint and grief have I spoken hitherto. 17Then Eli answered and said, Go in peace: and the God of Israel grant thee thy petition that thou hast asked of him. 18And she said, Let thine handmaid find grace in thy sight. So the woman went her way, and did eat, and her countenance was no more sad. 19And they rose up in the morning early, and worshipped before the LORD, and returned, and came to their house to Ramah: and Elkanah knew Hannah his wife; and the LORD remembered her. 20Wherefore it came to pass, when the time was come about after Hannah had conceived, that she bare a son, and called his name Samuel, saying, Because I have asked him of the LORD. 21And the man Elkanah, and all his house, went up to offer unto the LORD the yearly sacrifice, and his vow. 22But Hannah went not up; for she said unto her husband, I will not go up until the child be weaned, and then I will bring him, that he may appear before the LORD, and there abide for ever. 23And Elkanah her husband said unto her, Do what seemeth thee good; tarry until thou have weaned him; only the LORD establish his word. So the woman abode, and gave her son suck until she weaned him. 24And when she had weaned him, she took him up with her, with three bullocks, and one ephah of flour, and a bottle of wine, and brought him unto the house of the LORD in Shiloh: and the child was young. 25And they slew a bullock, and brought the child to Eli. 26And she said, Oh my lord, as thy soul liveth, my lord, I am the woman that stood by thee here, praying unto the LORD. 27For this child I prayed; and the LORD hath given me my petition which I asked of him: 28Therefore also I have lent him to the LORD; as long as he liveth he shall be lent to the LORD. And he worshipped the LORD there. (KJV)
