Hannah was barren and childless but yet and still her husband preferred her. (Read 1st Samuel 1:5-8, 17:18).
God’s hand was upon Hannah because of her sacrifice and prayer life. Her husband loved her, but there was a distraction and her name was Peninah. Distractions are set up all around us to see if we are going to fail.
It seems as if everyone around you are being blessed. It seems as if you are all alone and no one understands your pain. Everyone around you only sees when you fall, not realizing that God’s hand is on you.
What didn’t kill you made you stronger and your life experiences teach a lesson because God’s hand is on you. Your faith may have began to bend until you came to the realization that God’s hand is on you.
Be encouraged to know that you will not fail in God. If you give Him full permission and control, things will begin to manifest.
Do not equate material blessings as a sign that God’s hand is on you. There were battles He fought for you that you know nothing about. There were roadblocks in life that you never came up on because God’s hand is on you.
Know that the Lord is always fighting for His children. His Hand is on you. That’s why distractions come, that’s why you go through what you go through. The enemy fights those who have submitted to the Lord. Each day you wake up encourage yourself with these words, GOD’S HAND IS ON ME!
