Expect the Unexpected
1 Samuel 2: 1-10
HANNAH PRAYED, and said, My heart exults and triumphs in the Lord; my horn (my
strength) is lifted up in the Lord. My mouth is no longer silent, for it is opened wide over my
enemies, because I rejoice in Your salvation. There is none holy like the Lord, there is none
besides You; there is no Rock like our God. Talk no more so very proudly; let not arrogance go
forth from your mouth, for the Lord is a God of knowledge, and by Him actions are weighed.
The bows of the mighty are broken, and those who stumbled are girded with strength. Those who
were full have hired themselves out for bread, but those who were hungry have ceased to hunger.
The barren has borne seven, but she who has many children languishes and is forlorn. The Lord
slays and makes alive; He brings down to Sheol and raises up. The Lord makes poor and makes
rich; He brings low and He lifts up. He raises up the poor out of the dust and lifts up the needy
from the ash heap, to make them sit with nobles and inherit the throne of glory. For the pillars of
the earth are the Lord's, and He has set the world upon them. He will guard the feet of His godly
ones, but the wicked shall be silenced and perish in darkness; for by strength shall no man
prevail. The adversaries of the Lord shall be broken to pieces; against them will He thunder in
heaven. The Lord will judge [all peoples] to the ends of the earth; and He will give strength to
His king (King) and exalt the power of His anointed (Anointed His Christ).

He Favors You – Expect Good Things
