Hannah's Faith

When Faith Abounds 

 




Samuel is mentioned among the faith giants in Hebrews 11.

His life began through a barren, desperate woman. For many years Hannah cried out to the Lord in deep anguish. I Samuel 1-3

She and her husband, Elkanah, made their annual trek to Shiloh to worship and sacrifice to the Lord at the temple.

Eli, the priest, misunderstood her as he saw her praying so earnestly. Her lips were moving but she wasn't making any sound. He accused her of being drunk and told her to put away her wine.

She told him she wasn't drinking. "Don't take me for a wicked woman. I am in great anguish and grief."

Eli then said, "Go in peace and may the God of Israel grant you what you have asked of Him." 1:16-17

Hannah became pregnant and gave birth to a son. She named him Samuel which means "heard by God."

Are you in a season of barrenness in some area of your life?

A place where no matter what you do or how much you pray, give, or try it just doesn't fly?

Mighty in God

Faith Abounds - Episode 13 




David's life spans many chapters in the Bible. The phases and seasons recorded gives insights and wisdom for events we face in our lives.

II Samuel 22 records a song that David sang when God delivered him from his enemies and from the "days of Saul." It's 51 verses. That's a long song, right?

Read this chapter yourself. It will strengthen your faith.

"I called to the Lord...the waves of death swirled about me; the torrents of destruction overwhelmed me. The cords of the grave coiled around me; the snares of death confronted me.

In my distress I called to the Lord; I called out to my God. From His temple He heard my voice; my cry came to His ears." vs. 4-7

Unless you've been in a season like he describes you can't write about it with such descriptive words. It's easy to see David sang from his own experiences.

Many times his exact words comforted me like a warm blanket giving me hope. I thank God that He, by His Spirit, had these words put...

“Since we are now joined to Christ, we have been given the treasures of redemption by His blood – the total cancellation of our sins – all because of the cascading riches of His grace. This superabundant grace is already powerfully working in us, releasing within us all forms of wisdom and practical understanding.” Ephesians 1:7-8

Heavenly Father, Your generosity amazes me. Who am I that You would even give me a thought? Yet, in Your love You shower me with natural and spiritual blessings beyond my comprehension. Holy are You, Lord

David's Warrior Faith

faith judy buaer relentless Apr 08, 2022

Faith Abounds 



Relentless pursuit. What comes to your mind when you read those two words?

On the one hand it could define our posture that we pursue God with all of our heart, with all of our soul and all of our strength to give Him glory with our lives.

On the other hand it could define God's enemy in his relentless pursuit as he attempts to derail, distract and destroy us so God receives no glory.  

Reading about David's life we discover that he was relentlessly pursued by King Saul who was jealous of him.  I refer to that as "the days of Saul." 

There are seasons where we go through our own "days of Saul." 

Times where we just don't seem to catch a break, where it feels like the enemies hot breath is breathing down our neck, where it seems like there is no end to the troubles and difficulties as though we're on the run for our lives...literally. 

Once David's victory over Goliath happened, King Saul welcomed and promised him his...

“If someone claims, ‘I have come to know God by experience,’ yet doesn’t keep God’s commands, he is a phony, and the truth finds no place in him. But the love of God will be perfected within the one who obeys God’s Word.” I John 2:4-5

When Faith Abounds - David's Faith

faith judy bauer Apr 01, 2022

David & Goliath



David heard the commotion. He saw the giant of a man shout out his defiance against the God of Israel and His people.

They had been at a stand off for 40 days. The giants were taunting the Israelites every morning and evening driving the Israelite army to retreat in fear and dread, with great success.

David, the shepherd boy, said, "What will be done for the man who kills this Philistine and removes this disgrace from Israel? Who is this uncircumcised Philistine that he should defy the armies of the living God?"

King Saul agreed to let David take on the giant but wanted him to wear His armor. Perhaps so that as the men watched from their positions they would think it was the king who was courageous enough to go up against their ferocious enemy.

David said, "I can't wear that! It doesn't fit me. I need to go with what works for me, how God has trained me to fight."

Goliath kept getting closer and saw that it was little more than a boy, glowing with health...

Jephthah's Faith

Faith Abounds 

 



HEBREWS 11

32 And what more shall I say? For time will fail me if I tell of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, of David and Samuel and the prophets, 33 who by faith [that is, with an enduring trust in God and His promises] subdued kingdoms, administered justice, obtained promised blessings, closed the mouths of lions, 34 extinguished the power of [raging] fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, became mighty and unbeatable in battle, putting enemy forces to flight. 35 Women received back their dead by resurrection; and others were tortured [to death], refusing to accept release [offered on the condition of denying their faith], so that they would be resurrected to a better life; 36 and others experienced the trial of mocking and scourging [amid torture], and even chains and imprisonment. 37 They were stoned [to death], they were sawn in two, they were lured...
