Don’t Ever Lose Your Worship
In 1 Samuel 1, we read of the story of Elkanah, who had two wives, Penninah & Hannah. Penninah had given Elkanah children whereas Hannah was in a position that she could not bare children. In spite of the Hannah’s circumstances, she was the recipient of Elkanah’s love and therefore she received the double portion from her husband. It was not to long that the only thing that Hannah could do in her situation is find God –find strength—find answers through her worship.
Worship will pull out everything that’s fleshly in you. It will tear down ideologies and thoughts that have been lingering around; feelings of insecurity; self-defeat; worthlessness; and insignificance. The minute you lose your worship becomes the moment that you become defeated. So you’ve got to stay in worship until God completes the work in you.
The enemy’s objective was to get Hannah to focus on the fact that she could not bare children. What Hannah didn’t realize was that she was in a better position than what the enemy was showing her. So it is with you--You might feel as if you are in a bad situation, but understand that God loves you! You’ve got to know that you’re loved in spite of what you don’t have. You’ve got to know that even though you may be in a situation where you don’t have the things you desire, it won’t always be that way. That’s why the bible says rejoice in the Lord, again Rejoice…Rejoice in the Lord God of your salvation.. IOWs you’ve got to be happy… Psalms 1 AMP says Blessed (happy) is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly…..His delight is in the Law, he meditates on it (not the barrenness) day and night….He shall be like a tree...that brings forth (no longer barren) fruit in its season (appointed time)…and whatever he does shall prosper…. As long as you remain happy, at the appointed time your situation will change and you will bring forth fruit.
