1 Samuel 1:21-23

ELKANAH ATTENDS THE YEARLY SACRIFICE

“When the man Elkanah went up with his family to offer the annual sacrifice to the LORD and to fulfil his vow…” 1 Samuel 1:21, NIV.

Few years ago, during the annual Harvest Thanksgiving in a Baptist Church, Mrs. Akpan’s only child, Victoria, faced unusual health problem. The experience was filled with painful contradictions. Though helpless, she trusted God for a supernatural healing and wholeness. She displayed a strong faith in God but sometimes questioned her trust in God. She watched her daughter groaning in pain with endurance. In spite of all the daily struggles and dark experience, she gave a huge sum of money to her church annually in fulfilment of her vow.
In the same vein, Elkanah attended the yearly sacrifice to fulfil his vow (v. 21). Thrice a year, every Israelite male was required to appear before the Lord at the central sanctuary (Ex. 23:14-19). Elkanah, no doubt, made vows annually to the Lord as he prayed for God’s blessing on his crops and flocks, and fulfilled those vows at the Feat of Tabernacle. Making vows to God was a common feature of Old Testament piety, usually involving thanksgiving offerings and praise. Answered prayers are to be remembered with peculiar expressions of thankfulness. It is not too late to fulfil that vow you have made. No circumstance should debar you from fulfilling your vows. It is better not to make a vow than to make a vow without fulfilling it. Those who are steadfast resolve to pay their vows.
