This Is How I Fight My Battles
1 Samuel 1-28 Elkanah had two wives; one was called Hannah and the other Peninnah. Peninnah had children, but Hannah had none. Because the LORD had closed Hannah’s womb, her rival kept provoking her in order to irritate her. This went on year after year. Whenever Hannah went up to the house of the LORD, her rival provoked her till she wept and would not eat.
Hannah was faced with painful circumstances yet she chose to honour and worship God. She did not complain or put blame on others, instead she chose to respond by turning to God, not away from Him. She persevered and did not give up.
Your circumstances are not to bring you down. It will build the character of Christ in you if you can hang in there and trust God enough.
