In the birth of her baby, Samuel, Hannah sees the hand of God working for the salvation of all His people: 1. What Hannah believes (1-3) 2. What Hannah sees (4-8a) 3. What Hannah expects (8b-10)
Questions to think about during the sermon: Point 1: 1. How can you see that Hannah is more than a happy mother, and Hannahâ€™s song refers to more than just the birth of a child? 2, How does Hannah know that the birth of her child is important? What pattern does she expect God to follow? Point 2: 3, What does God promise to do with the rich/poor as well as the strong/weak? On what side of the fence are we? 4, Why was Hannahâ€™s barrenness a blessing for her? What did this circumstance demonstrate to her? Point 3: 5, In which way is Maryâ€™s prayer different from Hannahâ€™s? Why?
