Scripture: 1 Samuel 2
We see two ends of the spectrum here:
- Hannah exults the Lord! She’s blessed for her dedication to Him.
- Eli’s sons are doing evil and Eli doesn’t get them under control. His whole family is condemned.
It doesn’t always work out like this in such a timely manner. We may see some blessings of the Lord on a regular basis, but it seems like evil goes unpunished a lot of the time.
We can rest assured though that God is in control. And His justice will prevail in the end.
Have faith like Hannah.
9 “He will guard the feet of his faithful ones, but the wicked shall be cut off in darkness, for not by might shall a man prevail.10 The adversaries of the LORD shall be broken to pieces; against them he will thunder in heaven. The LORD will judge the ends of the earth; he will give strength to his king and exalt the horn of his anointed.”

Praise the Lord, and just show up!
