Renungan harian alkitab; Samuel 1, minggu, “fulfill the promise, memenuhi janji”

1 Samuel 1:23-28 (NKJV)  And Elkanah her husband said to her, “Do what seems best to you; wait until you have weaned him. Only let the Lord establish His word.” So the woman stayed and nursed her son until she had weaned him.

Now when she had weaned him, she took him up with her, with three bulls, one ephah of flour, and a skin of wine, and brought him to the house of the Lord in Shiloh. And the child was young.

Then they slaughtered a bull, and brought the child to Eli.

And she said, “O my lord! As your soul lives, my lord, I am the woman who stood by you here, praying to the Lord.

For this child I prayed, and the Lord has granted me my petition which I asked of Him.

Therefore I also have lent him to the Lord; as long as he lives he shall be lent to the Lord.” So they worshiped the Lord there.

Hannah yang mandul, berdoa meminta anak dan berjanji kepada Tuhan jika Tuhan menyembuhkan dirinya dari mandul  dan mempunyai anak, maka anak tersebut akan diserahkan kepada Tuhan , dipersembahkan untuk di didik menjadi hamba Tuhan.

Mukjizat terjadi, anak bernama Samuel, telah lahir, dan ditangan Hannah, ini waktunya Hannah menepati janjinya. Hannah menepati janjinya ia setia, ia mempunyai rasa aman dan iman, ia percaya Tuhan akan memberikan anak- anak lebih banyak, dan berani menepati janjinya , memberikan Samuel kepada Tuhan.

Para pembaca terkasih, banyak orang mengumbar janji akan melayani Tuhan, atau bertobat, kepada Tuhan , meminta berkat kesembuhan, keuangan, rumah tangga, dan semua berkat lainnya, tapi ketika Tuhan memberkati mereka, mereka tidak menepati janjinya.

Jika ini terjadi maka orang tersebut yang tidak menepati janji perlu bertobat dan memenuhi janjinya, atau ia akan keluar dari jalan berkat dan masuk pada jalan kutuk, ia tidak akan mengalami mukjizat lagi, sampai suatu hari ia bertobat.
