HANNAH IS CHILDLESS AND SUFFERING

“And because the LORD had closed her womb, her rival kept provoking her in order to irritate her” 1 Samuel 1:6

Nwakaego had been married for over ten years without a child and had experienced humiliation from her in-laws. One day, her mother-in-law asked her to leave her son’s house. Nwakaego lost her patience in the process and both of them engaged in a rift. Her mother-in-law pounced on her, she fell and started to bleed. Nwakaego’s husband rushed her to the hospital only to discover that she had lost four weeks’ pregnancy.
Hannah, the wife of Elkanah, who was barren, had a bitter experience with her rival, Peninah who had children. She made her miserable (vv. 6, 7), and also made her cry at the annual family feast (v. 8). It must be noted that, Hannah’s barrenness was not due to punishment for any sin (v. 5). It is evident that her barrenness, suffering, shame and waiting were a trial of her faith. Likewise, there are times God may allow us to pass through some challenges. There may be insults, embarrassment and neglect from people around us. God expects us to wait patiently in prayer and put our trust in Him. Let that which you are passing through motivate you to trust God more. He will surely intervene at His purposed time.
