HEBREWS 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

SCRIPTURE READING: I SAMUEL 1:1-17

In the day that Hannah lived, it was a shame for a married woman to be childless. Hannah wanted a child so badly that she vowed unto the Lord that if He would give her a baby boy she would let him be separated to the Lord's service. This was not a selfish prayer. Hannah was married and had a right to expect children to enrich her life, but she didn't ask for a child to keep and nurture. She promised God that He could have this child back.

Hannah evidently felt that God had forgotten her. She said in I Samuel 1:11, "...if thou wilt... remember me, and not forget thine handmaid." This is a feeling that most Christians share when they are down. Hannah must have been very depressed and humilated when her husband's other wife taunted her because she had no child. When we are depressed, we feel alone and forsaken. We often feel that even God has forgotten us. There are so many problems we face in life today; so much to do. It is easy to get depressed and feel like we are all alone and nobody else cares about us or OUR needs!

GOD DOES NOT FORGET

If God remembers the sinner, to call him to repentance, how much more will He remember His own child? God wants us to always ask for the things we desire and have need of but He has not forgotten our needs for one moment.

The next time you're feeling low, and you think everyone has forsaken you, look up! God knows who you are and where you are.

HE ALWAYS REMEMBERS!

REMEMBER ME


Lord, remember me as I go about my daily tasks.
Remember me this one thing of Thee, Lord, I ask.
See me Lord I pray, always keep me in Thy sight.
Remember me at daybreak and through the dark of night.
Every need I have Lord, I'll humbly bring to Thee,
And trust you won't forget Lord, to Remember Me.

[GOD BLESS]

Sometimes we tell God we're going to give Him our problems and let Him guide our future and then we start worrying about what's going to happen next and go take it back and try to carry it ourselves again! And even if we've given Him our future, we want to hold on the the past. If you're trusting Him with the future, that's a step in the right direction but why not trust Him with your past, too? Once you've done that you'll be amazed at how much easier it is to live in the present!
