  • - Brian Houston: Lord,
  • 00:00:14.260 --> 00:00:15.230
  • that's the way of your kingdom
  • 00:00:15.230 --> 00:00:17.060
  • from death to life,
  • 00:00:17.060 --> 00:00:18.190
  • from grace to grace.
  • 00:00:18.190 --> 00:00:20.260
  • Lord, I just thank you
  • 00:00:20.260 --> 00:00:21.290
  • in Jesus' name right now for
  • 00:00:21.290 --> 00:00:23.280
  • all you're doing in our lives,
  • 00:00:23.280 --> 00:00:25.210
  • all you're building,
  • 00:00:25.210 --> 00:00:26.250
  • all you're doing
  • 00:00:26.250 --> 00:00:27.270
  • to take us onward and upward
  • 00:00:27.270 --> 00:00:29.090
  • from death to life,
  • 00:00:29.090 --> 00:00:31.080
  • from grace to grace.
  • 00:00:31.080 --> 00:00:33.170
  • We thank you now
  • 00:00:33.170 --> 00:00:34.140
  • as we come around your Word.
  • 00:00:34.140 --> 00:00:35.230
  • In Jesus' name, amen.
  • 00:00:37.010 --> 00:00:40.010
  • Be blessed.
  • 00:00:40.010 --> 00:00:40.240
  • You guys everywhere,
  • 00:00:40.240 --> 00:00:41.290
  • can be seated.
  • 00:00:41.290 --> 00:00:43.280
  • We can never fully understand
  • 00:00:43.280 --> 00:00:45.260
  • the love of a mother.
  • 00:00:45.260 --> 00:00:48.030
  • We can't fully understand
  • 00:00:48.030 --> 00:00:49.110
  • the heart or the sacrifices of
  • 00:00:49.110 --> 00:00:52.090
  • a mother, but one thing
  • 00:00:52.090 --> 00:00:54.150
  • I do know is
  • 00:00:54.150 --> 00:00:56.050
  • that apart from your love
  • 00:00:56.050 --> 00:00:59.050
  • and the greatest gift any mother
  • 00:00:59.050 --> 00:01:01.130
  • can give their child is
  • 00:01:01.130 --> 00:01:04.020
  • a dynamic authentic relationship
  • 00:01:04.020 --> 00:01:06.130
  • with God.
  • 00:01:06.130 --> 00:01:07.080
  • I'm talking about
  • 00:01:07.080 --> 00:01:08.000
  • your relationship with God.
  • 00:01:08.000 --> 00:01:09.280
  • A praying mother,
  • 00:01:09.280 --> 00:01:11.140
  • that surely has to be amongst
  • 00:01:11.140 --> 00:01:13.190
  • the greatest gifts you could
  • 00:01:13.190 --> 00:01:14.240
  • ever give your children.
  • 00:01:14.240 --> 00:01:16.250
  • This message is literally that,
  • 00:01:16.250 --> 00:01:18.210
  • it is "The Greatest Gift
  • 00:01:18.210 --> 00:01:20.020
  • a Mother Can Give Her Children."
  • 00:01:20.090 --> 00:01:23.090
  • I see it as your faith,
  • 00:01:23.090 --> 00:01:25.000
  • your relationship with God
  • 00:01:25.000 --> 00:01:26.140
  • and especially,
  • 00:01:26.140 --> 00:01:27.130
  • your prayers for your children.
  • 00:01:27.130 --> 00:01:29.190
  • Never ever underestimate in life
  • 00:01:29.190 --> 00:01:32.120
  • the power of prayer.
  • 00:01:32.120 --> 00:01:34.260
  • So powerful.
  • 00:01:34.260 --> 00:01:36.020
  • We got three kids
  • 00:01:36.020 --> 00:01:36.290
  • and by God's grace,
  • 00:01:36.290 --> 00:01:38.020
  • they're all serving Jesus.
  • 00:01:38.020 --> 00:01:39.250
  • I think one of the greatest
  • 00:01:39.250 --> 00:01:41.050
  • things I would attribute that to
  • 00:01:41.050 --> 00:01:43.010
  • outside of just God's grace,
  • 00:01:43.010 --> 00:01:45.120
  • is their praying mother.
  • 00:01:45.120 --> 00:01:47.050
  • Anyone who knows Bobbie
  • 00:01:47.050 --> 00:01:48.050
  • knows she has an authentic,
  • 00:01:48.050 --> 00:01:50.140
  • very, very real love for Jesus.
  • 00:01:50.270 --> 00:01:53.270
  • She's a passionate woman and
  • 00:01:53.270 --> 00:01:55.040
  • when any of our children have
  • 00:01:55.040 --> 00:01:56.060
  • been in trouble, they've all had
  • 00:01:56.060 --> 00:01:57.120
  • their problems across the years,
  • 00:01:57.120 --> 00:01:59.110
  • believe me,
  • 00:01:59.110 --> 00:02:00.070
  • Bobbie knows how to go to war.
  • 00:02:00.070 --> 00:02:02.030
  • A praying mum is so power.
  • 00:02:02.030 --> 00:02:04.080
  • You know, Hannah in 1 Samuel,
  • 00:02:04.080 --> 00:02:06.140
  • Hannah where her life ended up
  • 00:02:06.140 --> 00:02:08.230
  • she had a husband who loved
  • 00:02:08.230 --> 00:02:10.030
  • her and not only that,
  • 00:02:10.030 --> 00:02:11.070
  • but she also had a miracle son.
  • 00:02:11.070 --> 00:02:13.190
  • He was a son to proud of.
  • 00:02:13.190 --> 00:02:15.150
  • Of course, his name was Samuel,
  • 00:02:15.150 --> 00:02:16.290
  • he was a minister.
  • 00:02:16.290 --> 00:02:17.270
  • He served God as a priest
  • 00:02:17.270 --> 00:02:19.100
  • and he did it faithfully.
  • 00:02:19.100 --> 00:02:21.110
  • He knew clearly how to receive
  • 00:02:21.110 --> 00:02:22.200
  • the Word of the Lord.
  • 00:02:22.200 --> 00:02:23.220
  • He was a man who the Scripture
  • 00:02:23.220 --> 00:02:25.120
  • describes as having favor
  • 00:02:25.120 --> 00:02:28.040
  • and stature with God and man.
  • 00:02:28.040 --> 00:02:31.040
  • Stature, stature
  • 00:02:31.040 --> 00:02:32.230
  • is not height necessarily.
  • 00:02:32.230 --> 00:02:34.120
  • Stature, when it talks about
  • 00:02:34.120 --> 00:02:36.070
  • God's blessing, relates to
  • 00:02:36.070 --> 00:02:38.020
  • influence, impact, credibility,
  • 00:02:38.020 --> 00:02:40.220
  • something to aspire to,
  • 00:02:40.220 --> 00:02:42.090
  • something to look up to.
  • 00:02:42.090 --> 00:02:43.160
  • And believe me,
  • 00:02:43.160 --> 00:02:45.010
  • a lot of it was because
  • 00:02:45.010 --> 00:02:46.060
  • God has answered her prayer.
  • 00:02:46.060 --> 00:02:49.020
  • But as you read 1 Samuel,
  • 00:02:49.020 --> 00:02:50.280
  • the one thing that's obvious
  • 00:02:50.280 --> 00:02:52.020
  • is that's not where it started.
  • 00:02:52.020 --> 00:02:53.170
  • Where it started is Hannah
  • 00:02:53.170 --> 00:02:55.200
  • was a woman with deep anguish.
  • 00:02:55.200 --> 00:02:57.130
  • She was a woman with deep pain
  • 00:02:57.130 --> 00:02:58.210
  • because her issue
  • 00:02:58.210 --> 00:02:59.270
  • was she was barren.
  • 00:02:59.270 --> 00:03:01.100
  • She was unable to have children.
  • 00:03:01.100 --> 00:03:03.200
  • Maybe your situation,
  • 00:03:03.200 --> 00:03:05.010
  • your pain is different.
  • 00:03:05.010 --> 00:03:06.220
  • Maybe your child is away
  • 00:03:06.220 --> 00:03:08.060
  • from God and that's
  • 00:03:08.060 --> 00:03:09.150
  • a deep anguish to you.
  • 00:03:09.150 --> 00:03:11.150
  • Others maybe there's issues in
  • 00:03:11.150 --> 00:03:12.290
  • your own relationship or maybe
  • 00:03:12.290 --> 00:03:14.170
  • one of your adult children,
  • 00:03:14.170 --> 00:03:16.190
  • you love them so much
  • 00:03:16.190 --> 00:03:18.090
  • but you feel helpless because
  • 00:03:18.090 --> 00:03:19.210
  • they're going through pain.
  • 00:03:19.210 --> 00:03:21.070
  • Maybe they're going through
  • 00:03:21.070 --> 00:03:22.050
  • a hurtful divorce or some other
  • 00:03:22.050 --> 00:03:23.290
  • thing that can hurt families.
  • 00:03:23.290 --> 00:03:25.270
  • All I know is, like I say,
  • 00:03:25.270 --> 00:03:27.210
  • I'll never understand fully
  • 00:03:27.210 --> 00:03:30.000
  • the anguish of a mother's heart
  • 00:03:30.000 --> 00:03:31.270
  • and that's where Hannah was at.
  • 00:03:31.270 --> 00:03:33.290
  • The Scripture says about her
  • 00:03:33.290 --> 00:03:36.100
  • that she in verse 10,
  • 00:03:36.100 --> 00:03:38.060
  • 1 Samuel chapter 1, "She was in
  • 00:03:38.060 --> 00:03:40.140
  • bitterness of soul and prayed to
  • 00:03:40.140 --> 00:03:42.070
  • the Lord and wept in anguish."
  • 00:03:42.070 --> 00:03:45.010
  • She said in verse 15, "I am
  • 00:03:45.010 --> 00:03:46.140
  • a woman of sorrowful spirit.
  • 00:03:46.140 --> 00:03:48.070
  • I have poured out my soul
  • 00:03:48.070 --> 00:03:50.210
  • before the Lord."
  • 00:03:50.210 --> 00:03:53.050
  • She was a woman
  • 00:03:53.050 --> 00:03:54.080
  • in a desperate situation
  • 00:03:54.080 --> 00:03:55.270
  • and the devil, if you're
  • 00:03:55.270 --> 00:03:57.090
  • in some kind
  • 00:03:57.090 --> 00:03:58.000
  • of desperate situation,
  • 00:03:58.000 --> 00:04:00.180
  • he knows exactly
  • 00:04:00.180 --> 00:04:02.030
  • how to rub that in.
  • 00:04:02.030 --> 00:04:03.140
  • You know, 1 Samuel chapter 1,
  • 00:04:03.140 --> 00:04:04.270
  • verse 6, her husband Elkanah
  • 00:04:04.270 --> 00:04:06.290
  • who did love Hannah
  • 00:04:06.290 --> 00:04:08.080
  • had another wife.
  • 00:04:08.080 --> 00:04:09.200
  • Her name was Peninnah and
  • 00:04:09.200 --> 00:04:11.120
  • the Scripture says her rival,
  • 00:04:11.120 --> 00:04:13.090
  • describes her as a rival.
  • 00:04:13.090 --> 00:04:15.100
  • "Also provoked her severely
  • 00:04:15.100 --> 00:04:18.000
  • to make her miserable because
  • 00:04:18.000 --> 00:04:20.000
  • the Lord had closed her womb."
  • 00:04:20.000 --> 00:04:22.190
  • So not only was she going
  • 00:04:22.190 --> 00:04:23.260
  • through the pain of not being
  • 00:04:23.260 --> 00:04:25.020
  • able to have children,
  • 00:04:25.020 --> 00:04:26.120
  • but she also had a rival
  • 00:04:26.120 --> 00:04:28.130
  • for her husband's affections.
  • 00:04:28.130 --> 00:04:30.130
  • She not only had a rival,
  • 00:04:30.130 --> 00:04:31.230
  • but she faced anguish.
  • 00:04:31.230 --> 00:04:33.250
  • You see, her prayer was so deep,
  • 00:04:33.250 --> 00:04:35.100
  • the Scripture says she prayed
  • 00:04:35.100 --> 00:04:36.170
  • in her heart, but the truth
  • 00:04:36.170 --> 00:04:38.150
  • is she couldn't speak.
  • 00:04:38.150 --> 00:04:41.130
  • Her mouth wasn't moving.
  • 00:04:41.130 --> 00:04:43.010
  • So deep was her prayer,
  • 00:04:43.010 --> 00:04:44.180
  • so deep was her pain.
  • 00:04:44.180 --> 00:04:47.000
  • And the Scripture says
  • 00:04:47.000 --> 00:04:47.230
  • about that that Eli
  • 00:04:47.230 --> 00:04:49.040
  • who was the priest,
  • 00:04:49.040 --> 00:04:50.120
  • he thought he was drunk.
  • 00:04:50.120 --> 00:04:52.050
  • He said,
  • 00:04:52.050 --> 00:04:52.200
  • "How long will you be drunk?
  • 00:04:52.200 --> 00:04:54.120
  • Put your wine away from you."
  • 00:04:54.120 --> 00:04:56.170
  • And so, she was
  • 00:04:56.170 --> 00:04:57.150
  • being misunderstood
  • 00:04:57.150 --> 00:04:59.060
  • in the middle of her pain
  • 00:04:59.060 --> 00:05:00.030
  • and her deep-seated prayer,
  • 00:05:00.030 --> 00:05:02.030
  • and there was great anguish
  • 00:05:02.030 --> 00:05:03.100
  • for her, and on top of that,
  • 00:05:03.100 --> 00:05:05.060
  • I think, real condemnation.
  • 00:05:05.060 --> 00:05:07.210
  • Listen to verse 16.
  • 00:05:07.210 --> 00:05:09.090
  • It says, "Do not consider your
  • 00:05:09.090 --> 00:05:10.240
  • maidservant a wicked woman."
  • 00:05:10.240 --> 00:05:12.210
  • Do you know, literally,
  • 00:05:12.210 --> 00:05:14.030
  • it means a woman of Belial,
  • 00:05:15.020 --> 00:05:18.020
  • or a woman of the devil?
  • 00:05:18.020 --> 00:05:21.000
  • You can see how she was blaming
  • 00:05:21.000 --> 00:05:23.060
  • herself and how she was starting
  • 00:05:23.060 --> 00:05:25.070
  • to see things and imagine things
  • 00:05:25.070 --> 00:05:26.260
  • that related to condemnation.
  • 00:05:26.260 --> 00:05:29.030
  • One thing, mums, you should
  • 00:05:29.030 --> 00:05:30.150
  • never ever allow happen
  • 00:05:30.150 --> 00:05:32.080
  • is for you to become condemned
  • 00:05:32.080 --> 00:05:33.210
  • about whatever's happening
  • 00:05:33.210 --> 00:05:34.210
  • in your children's lives.
  • 00:05:34.210 --> 00:05:36.070
  • It's so easy for condemnation to
  • 00:05:36.070 --> 00:05:38.000
  • hit you when your children make
  • 00:05:38.000 --> 00:05:39.270
  • different decisions in life than
  • 00:05:39.270 --> 00:05:41.290
  • perhaps you would have wanted,
  • 00:05:41.290 --> 00:05:44.010
  • you would have imagined
  • 00:05:44.010 --> 00:05:45.010
  • for them.
  • 00:05:45.010 --> 00:05:45.280
  • So easy to turn that in
  • 00:05:45.280 --> 00:05:47.010
  • on yourself.
  • 00:05:47.010 --> 00:05:47.260
  • I always look at my family.
  • 00:05:47.260 --> 00:05:49.130
  • We all grew up in exactly
  • 00:05:49.130 --> 00:05:50.210
  • the same household, in exactly
  • 00:05:50.210 --> 00:05:53.010
  • the same circumstances, yet
  • 00:05:53.010 --> 00:05:54.280
  • in our early teens when I was
  • 00:05:54.280 --> 00:05:56.290
  • pressing into church life and
  • 00:05:56.290 --> 00:05:59.100
  • pressing into the things of God,
  • 00:05:59.100 --> 00:06:00.280
  • but my older brother
  • 00:06:00.280 --> 00:06:01.280
  • and my younger sister
  • 00:06:01.280 --> 00:06:02.220
  • were drifting out.
  • 00:06:02.220 --> 00:06:04.090
  • And so, that's why I think
  • 00:06:04.090 --> 00:06:05.210
  • sometimes we can blame
  • 00:06:05.210 --> 00:06:07.020
  • ourselves, but you gotta
  • 00:06:07.020 --> 00:06:08.060
  • understand that young teenage
  • 00:06:08.060 --> 00:06:10.070
  • and adult children
  • 00:06:10.070 --> 00:06:11.180
  • make their own choices in life.
  • 00:06:11.180 --> 00:06:13.010
  • And again, the greatest thing
  • 00:06:13.010 --> 00:06:14.090
  • you have is prayer, but don't
  • 00:06:14.090 --> 00:06:15.250
  • allow the devil
  • 00:06:15.250 --> 00:06:17.070
  • to rob you with condemnation
  • 00:06:17.070 --> 00:06:18.250
  • because that's exactly
  • 00:06:18.250 --> 00:06:20.060
  • what he would love to do.
  • 00:06:20.060 --> 00:06:21.240
  • But you see, the one thing,
  • 00:06:21.240 --> 00:06:23.180
  • the one thing that Hannah did
  • 00:06:23.180 --> 00:06:26.170
  • have was she was a pray-er.
  • 00:06:26.170 --> 00:06:29.070
  • She knew how to go to God
  • 00:06:29.070 --> 00:06:30.220
  • and she knew how to pray.
  • 00:06:30.220 --> 00:06:32.270
  • She cried out to God
  • 00:06:32.270 --> 00:06:34.110
  • in those early days,
  • 00:06:34.110 --> 00:06:35.100
  • that deep-seated pain.
  • 00:06:35.100 --> 00:06:37.030
  • She prayed and the Scripture
  • 00:06:37.030 --> 00:06:38.290
  • says she continued to pray.
  • 00:06:38.290 --> 00:06:41.010
  • I think the sign of great, great
  • 00:06:41.020 --> 00:06:44.020
  • faith is when someone
  • 00:06:44.020 --> 00:06:45.250
  • not only prays,
  • 00:06:45.250 --> 00:06:46.160
  • but in face of opposition,
  • 00:06:46.160 --> 00:06:48.070
  • mums, you continue to pray.
  • 00:06:48.070 --> 00:06:50.000
  • Whether you're seeing
  • 00:06:50.000 --> 00:06:50.250
  • the answer, whether you're
  • 00:06:50.250 --> 00:06:51.190
  • not seeing the answer, never
  • 00:06:51.190 --> 00:06:53.150
  • give up on the Word of the Lord
  • 00:06:53.150 --> 00:06:56.020
  • and on believing God to fulfill
  • 00:06:56.020 --> 00:06:57.260
  • his Word in your life.
  • 00:06:57.260 --> 00:07:00.030
  • And so, she prayed.
  • 00:07:00.030 --> 00:07:01.120
  • She continued to pray.
  • 00:07:01.120 --> 00:07:03.140
  • And the thing about Hannah,
  • 00:07:03.140 --> 00:07:04.280
  • the Bible talks about
  • 00:07:04.280 --> 00:07:05.170
  • her petition, in other words,
  • 00:07:05.170 --> 00:07:07.220
  • she petitioned God.
  • 00:07:07.220 --> 00:07:09.020
  • She went to God
  • 00:07:09.020 --> 00:07:10.210
  • and was specific about
  • 00:07:10.210 --> 00:07:11.270
  • what she was believing God for.
  • 00:07:11.270 --> 00:07:14.010
  • I would encourage you to pray,
  • 00:07:14.010 --> 00:07:15.230
  • to continue to pray, to know
  • 00:07:15.230 --> 00:07:17.220
  • how to put your petition before
  • 00:07:17.220 --> 00:07:19.050
  • the Lord and that is to pray
  • 00:07:19.050 --> 00:07:21.190
  • specifically, but hold on to
  • 00:07:21.190 --> 00:07:23.160
  • the Word of God in your prayer
  • 00:07:23.160 --> 00:07:25.110
  • because that's exactly,
  • 00:07:25.110 --> 00:07:26.230
  • obviously, what Hannah did.
  • 00:07:26.230 --> 00:07:29.030
  • In 1 Samuel 1:17, Eli the priest
  • 00:07:29.030 --> 00:07:31.290
  • said, "Go in peace, and the God
  • 00:07:31.290 --> 00:07:34.080
  • of Israel grant your petition
  • 00:07:34.080 --> 00:07:37.070
  • which you have asked of him."
  • 00:07:37.070 --> 00:07:40.020
  • She received her Word
  • 00:07:40.020 --> 00:07:40.230
  • from the Lord.
  • 00:07:40.230 --> 00:07:41.220
  • I love that, she received.
  • 00:07:41.220 --> 00:07:44.030
  • You gotta get your own Word
  • 00:07:44.030 --> 00:07:44.260
  • from the Lord.
  • 00:07:44.260 --> 00:07:45.280
  • You can't live off
  • 00:07:45.280 --> 00:07:47.050
  • somebody else's revelation.
  • 00:07:47.050 --> 00:07:48.260
  • You can't live off
  • 00:07:48.260 --> 00:07:49.210
  • somebody else's Word.
  • 00:07:49.210 --> 00:07:51.130
  • It's amazing how some people
  • 00:07:51.130 --> 00:07:52.210
  • who are barren, they have no way
  • 00:07:52.210 --> 00:07:54.160
  • forward, these fertility issues
  • 00:07:54.160 --> 00:07:55.230
  • or whatever else, and they
  • 00:07:55.230 --> 00:07:57.180
  • believe God enough and maybe
  • 00:07:57.180 --> 00:07:59.090
  • a long time they get their
  • 00:07:59.090 --> 00:08:00.190
  • miracle while there are other
  • 00:08:00.190 --> 00:08:02.000
  • people who, in fact, they
  • 00:08:02.000 --> 00:08:04.110
  • all through life that never seen
  • 00:08:04.110 --> 00:08:06.000
  • that particular miracle come,
  • 00:08:06.000 --> 00:08:07.130
  • but God answers their prayers
  • 00:08:07.130 --> 00:08:08.290
  • in other areas.
  • 00:08:08.290 --> 00:08:10.120
  • And there's certain things
  • 00:08:10.120 --> 00:08:11.090
  • we'll only ever understand
  • 00:08:11.090 --> 00:08:12.090
  • in eternity.
  • 00:08:12.090 --> 00:08:13.040
  • But mums, when it comes
  • 00:08:13.040 --> 00:08:14.160
  • to your children, know
  • 00:08:14.160 --> 00:08:15.140
  • how to get a Word from the Lord
  • 00:08:15.140 --> 00:08:17.030
  • because the Scripture says
  • 00:08:17.030 --> 00:08:18.070
  • she petitioned God.
  • 00:08:18.070 --> 00:08:20.010
  • And in chapter 1, verse 27 it
  • 00:08:20.010 --> 00:08:22.110
  • says, "For this child I prayed
  • 00:08:22.110 --> 00:08:24.060
  • and the Lord has granted me
  • 00:08:24.060 --> 00:08:25.180
  • my petition which I asked
  • 00:08:25.180 --> 00:08:28.040
  • of him."
  • 00:08:28.040 --> 00:08:28.280
  • 1 John 5:14 and 15,
  • 00:08:28.280 --> 00:08:31.010
  • what a powerful New Testament
  • 00:08:31.010 --> 00:08:33.000
  • Scripture it is.
  • 00:08:33.000 --> 00:08:34.000
  • This is the confidence that we
  • 00:08:34.000 --> 00:08:35.110
  • have in him, if we ask anything
  • 00:08:35.110 --> 00:08:37.280
  • according to his will, he hears
  • 00:08:37.280 --> 00:08:39.150
  • us and not only does he hear us,
  • 00:08:39.150 --> 00:08:41.120
  • but he gives us the petitions
  • 00:08:41.120 --> 00:08:44.000
  • that we have asked of him.
  • 00:08:44.000 --> 00:08:47.000
  • And, you know, the great news is
  • 00:08:47.000 --> 00:08:48.100
  • God answered her prayer,
  • 00:08:48.100 --> 00:08:50.000
  • but it didn't happen
  • 00:08:50.000 --> 00:08:50.160
  • straightaway.
  • 00:08:50.160 --> 00:08:51.210
  • 1 Samuel 1, verse 19 and 20,
  • 00:08:51.210 --> 00:08:53.220
  • "Then they rose early in
  • 00:08:53.220 --> 00:08:55.030
  • the morning, she and her husband
  • 00:08:55.030 --> 00:08:57.050
  • and worshiped before the Lord,
  • 00:08:57.050 --> 00:08:58.150
  • and returned and came
  • 00:08:58.150 --> 00:08:59.200
  • to their house at Ramah.
  • 00:08:59.200 --> 00:09:00.280
  • And Elkanah knew Hannah
  • 00:09:00.280 --> 00:09:03.060
  • his wife--" and so, he knew her,
  • 00:09:03.060 --> 00:09:05.130
  • God remembered her.
  • 00:09:05.130 --> 00:09:06.150
  • It's the Bible way of saying all
  • 00:09:06.150 --> 00:09:08.210
  • of sudden, grace and favor hit.
  • 00:09:08.210 --> 00:09:11.020
  • God answered her prayer
  • 00:09:11.020 --> 00:09:12.110
  • and she had a son,
  • 00:09:12.110 --> 00:09:14.250
  • a beautiful, miracle son.
  • 00:09:15.010 --> 00:09:18.010
  • Mums, like I've already said,
  • 00:09:18.010 --> 00:09:19.250
  • maybe your miracle, your need,
  • 00:09:19.280 --> 00:09:22.280
  • your cry is something
  • 00:09:22.280 --> 00:09:23.220
  • entirely different.
  • 00:09:23.220 --> 00:09:24.260
  • It might relate to so many
  • 00:09:24.260 --> 00:09:26.240
  • different issues happening
  • 00:09:26.240 --> 00:09:28.200
  • within your greater family.
  • 00:09:28.200 --> 00:09:30.040
  • I think that when our own kids
  • 00:09:30.040 --> 00:09:31.260
  • have gone through pain for me,
  • 00:09:31.260 --> 00:09:32.290
  • I'm not okay
  • 00:09:32.290 --> 00:09:34.170
  • if they're not okay.
  • 00:09:34.170 --> 00:09:35.120
  • And I think for mums it may
  • 00:09:35.120 --> 00:09:37.080
  • be even more heightened as that
  • 00:09:37.080 --> 00:09:40.060
  • that we feel things so deeply
  • 00:09:40.060 --> 00:09:41.210
  • for our children, but I believe
  • 00:09:41.210 --> 00:09:43.220
  • you get your Word from God
  • 00:09:43.220 --> 00:09:44.260
  • and God can answer your prayer.
  • 00:09:44.260 --> 00:09:46.080
  • And, again, the greatest gift
  • 00:09:46.080 --> 00:09:47.150
  • you can give your children is to
  • 00:09:47.150 --> 00:09:48.290
  • be a praying mum who holds on to
  • 00:09:48.290 --> 00:09:51.050
  • God's Word, who believes God's
  • 00:09:51.050 --> 00:09:52.260
  • Word and even when you don't see
  • 00:09:52.260 --> 00:09:54.220
  • answers, you're in the waiting,
  • 00:09:54.220 --> 00:09:56.060
  • you keep on holding
  • 00:09:56.060 --> 00:09:57.180
  • to God's Word because God
  • 00:09:57.180 --> 00:09:59.080
  • answers prayer, in Jesus' name.
  • 00:09:59.200 --> 00:10:02.200
  • So, five things,
  • 00:10:02.280 --> 00:10:05.280
  • five gifts that Hannah,
  • 00:10:05.290 --> 00:10:08.290
  • as a mother, gave her children.
  • 00:10:08.290 --> 00:10:11.100
  • And, you know, the first
  • 00:10:11.100 --> 00:10:12.210
  • is this, simply, she committed
  • 00:10:12.210 --> 00:10:14.050
  • him to God.
  • 00:10:14.050 --> 00:10:15.150
  • Even before Samuel was born,
  • 00:10:15.150 --> 00:10:17.130
  • she committed him to God.
  • 00:10:17.130 --> 00:10:19.140
  • And this is what the Scripture
  • 00:10:19.140 --> 00:10:21.060
  • says, in verse 11, chapter 1,
  • 00:10:21.160 --> 00:10:24.160
  • 1 Samuel it says,
  • 00:10:24.160 --> 00:10:26.090
  • "She made a vow and said,
  • 00:10:26.090 --> 00:10:27.140
  • 'O Lord of hosts,
  • 00:10:27.140 --> 00:10:28.190
  • if You will indeed
  • 00:10:28.190 --> 00:10:29.260
  • look on the affliction
  • 00:10:29.260 --> 00:10:30.210
  • of Your maidservant
  • 00:10:30.210 --> 00:10:31.180
  • and remember me, and not forget
  • 00:10:31.180 --> 00:10:33.210
  • Your maidservant, but will give
  • 00:10:33.210 --> 00:10:36.040
  • Your maidservant a male child,'"
  • 00:10:36.040 --> 00:10:38.230
  • here it is, "I will give him
  • 00:10:38.230 --> 00:10:40.180
  • to the Lord all the days
  • 00:10:40.180 --> 00:10:42.140
  • of his life,
  • 00:10:42.140 --> 00:10:44.010
  • and," a Nazarite vow, "no razor
  • 00:10:44.010 --> 00:10:46.040
  • shall come upon his head."
  • 00:10:46.040 --> 00:10:48.120
  • You know, she said, "God, if
  • 00:10:48.120 --> 00:10:49.280
  • you'll just give me a child,
  • 00:10:49.280 --> 00:10:51.100
  • I'm gonna commit him to you
  • 00:10:51.100 --> 00:10:52.290
  • for the rest of his life
  • 00:10:52.290 --> 00:10:54.190
  • 'til the end of his days."
  • 00:10:54.190 --> 00:10:56.200
  • You know, that's
  • 00:10:56.200 --> 00:10:57.090
  • a mother's prayer.
  • 00:10:57.090 --> 00:10:58.200
  • Oftentimes before a child is
  • 00:10:58.200 --> 00:10:59.240
  • born, you pray that prayer
  • 00:10:59.240 --> 00:11:01.290
  • and that prayer, I believe,
  • 00:11:01.290 --> 00:11:03.190
  • is a great gift to your children
  • 00:11:03.190 --> 00:11:04.260
  • because as God answers prayer,
  • 00:11:04.260 --> 00:11:06.240
  • he keeps your children on course
  • 00:11:06.240 --> 00:11:08.180
  • with his purpose.
  • 00:11:08.180 --> 00:11:09.210
  • There's, many, many different
  • 00:11:09.210 --> 00:11:10.250
  • ways people serve God.
  • 00:11:10.250 --> 00:11:12.070
  • This is not the only way.
  • 00:11:12.070 --> 00:11:13.210
  • Eli, who was a priest and then
  • 00:11:13.210 --> 00:11:15.180
  • Samuel who was a priest, this
  • 00:11:15.180 --> 00:11:17.160
  • miracle child, he was a minister
  • 00:11:17.160 --> 00:11:19.080
  • but that's not the only way.
  • 00:11:19.080 --> 00:11:20.090
  • There's a myriad of ways
  • 00:11:20.090 --> 00:11:22.040
  • that people serve God.
  • 00:11:22.040 --> 00:11:23.060
  • But parents, let's never ever
  • 00:11:23.060 --> 00:11:24.120
  • stop, even before we see
  • 00:11:24.120 --> 00:11:26.030
  • the miracle come, believing that
  • 00:11:26.030 --> 00:11:28.080
  • God, 'til the end of their days
  • 00:11:28.120 --> 00:11:31.120
  • will cause our children
  • 00:11:31.120 --> 00:11:32.260
  • to serve him.
  • 00:11:32.260 --> 00:11:34.090
  • And if you're in the waiting and
  • 00:11:34.090 --> 00:11:35.210
  • right now your children are not
  • 00:11:35.210 --> 00:11:37.090
  • serving him, stay specific.
  • 00:11:37.090 --> 00:11:39.110
  • Keep praying,
  • 00:11:39.110 --> 00:11:40.220
  • keep continuing in prayer.
  • 00:11:40.220 --> 00:11:42.070
  • Keep petitioning God because
  • 00:11:42.070 --> 00:11:43.260
  • God answers prayer.
  • 00:11:44.010 --> 00:11:47.010
  • Amen.
  • 00:11:47.010 --> 00:11:48.060
  • God answers prayer.
  • 00:11:48.060 --> 00:11:50.250
  • When my little girl, Laura,
  • 00:11:50.250 --> 00:11:52.050
  • was born and obviously naked
  • 00:11:52.060 --> 00:11:55.060
  • being weighed
  • 00:11:55.060 --> 00:11:56.030
  • and I looked at my little girl.
  • 00:11:56.030 --> 00:11:57.210
  • She looked so sort of vulnerable
  • 00:11:57.210 --> 00:11:59.130
  • and so sort of exposed.
  • 00:11:59.130 --> 00:12:01.130
  • And I remember holding my hand
  • 00:12:01.130 --> 00:12:03.040
  • over her body and just praying
  • 00:12:03.040 --> 00:12:05.050
  • to God and committing her
  • 00:12:05.050 --> 00:12:07.110
  • to the Lord and believing God
  • 00:12:07.110 --> 00:12:08.180
  • to protect her, and to keep her,
  • 00:12:08.180 --> 00:12:10.140
  • and to look after her.
  • 00:12:10.140 --> 00:12:11.280
  • And, you know, I don't think
  • 00:12:11.280 --> 00:12:13.190
  • those prayers go wasted.
  • 00:12:13.190 --> 00:12:15.080
  • So, a great gift to your
  • 00:12:15.080 --> 00:12:17.060
  • children is commit them to God
  • 00:12:17.060 --> 00:12:18.170
  • and maybe do it even, even
  • 00:12:18.170 --> 00:12:20.140
  • before you see the miracle come.
  • 00:12:20.140 --> 00:12:22.120
  • And then secondly, a gift
  • 00:12:22.120 --> 00:12:24.210
  • to Samuel from Hannah was
  • 00:12:24.290 --> 00:12:27.290
  • the moment he was born, she was
  • 00:12:27.290 --> 00:12:30.210
  • committed to dedicating him
  • 00:12:30.210 --> 00:12:32.290
  • to the Lord, literally
  • 00:12:32.290 --> 00:12:34.130
  • offering him to God.
  • 00:12:34.130 --> 00:12:36.120
  • And so, first thing she
  • 00:12:36.120 --> 00:12:37.280
  • committed him to the Lord.
  • 00:12:37.280 --> 00:12:39.080
  • Second thing, she dedicated him
  • 00:12:39.080 --> 00:12:41.080
  • to the Lord after he was born.
  • 00:12:41.080 --> 00:12:43.290
  • Here's the verses, verse 24
  • 00:12:43.290 --> 00:12:45.170
  • of the same chapter it says,
  • 00:12:45.170 --> 00:12:47.130
  • "Now when she had weaned him,
  • 00:12:47.130 --> 00:12:49.020
  • she took him up with her,
  • 00:12:49.020 --> 00:12:50.210
  • with three bulls,
  • 00:12:50.210 --> 00:12:52.010
  • one ephah of flour,
  • 00:12:52.010 --> 00:12:54.160
  • and a skin of wine,
  • 00:12:54.160 --> 00:12:55.270
  • and brought him to the house
  • 00:12:55.270 --> 00:12:57.110
  • of the Lord in Shiloh.
  • 00:12:57.110 --> 00:12:58.250
  • And the child was young."
  • 00:12:58.250 --> 00:13:00.200
  • So, man, dedication
  • 00:13:00.200 --> 00:13:02.030
  • was tough in those days.
  • 00:13:02.030 --> 00:13:03.240
  • I mean, we think it's difficult
  • 00:13:03.240 --> 00:13:04.190
  • now to have to get up early
  • 00:13:04.190 --> 00:13:05.240
  • on a winter's morning, put our
  • 00:13:05.240 --> 00:13:07.250
  • child in their nice, beautiful,
  • 00:13:07.250 --> 00:13:08.280
  • little dedication gown or nice,
  • 00:13:08.280 --> 00:13:10.240
  • little dedication suit,
  • 00:13:10.240 --> 00:13:12.130
  • bring them along to church and,
  • 00:13:12.130 --> 00:13:14.020
  • of course, that goes with that.
  • 00:13:14.020 --> 00:13:16.040
  • But imagine in those days, poor
  • 00:13:16.040 --> 00:13:18.060
  • old Hannah for the dedication
  • 00:13:18.060 --> 00:13:19.220
  • of Samuel, she had three bulls
  • 00:13:19.220 --> 00:13:22.150
  • she had to carry, three bulls
  • 00:13:22.150 --> 00:13:24.020
  • and not only did she have three
  • 00:13:24.020 --> 00:13:25.120
  • bulls, she also had a big sack
  • 00:13:25.120 --> 00:13:27.160
  • of flour and a cask of wine,
  • 00:13:27.160 --> 00:13:29.190
  • and she had to come
  • 00:13:29.190 --> 00:13:30.150
  • with all of that.
  • 00:13:30.150 --> 00:13:31.070
  • So we got it easy these days
  • 00:13:31.070 --> 00:13:32.180
  • when it comes to dedicating
  • 00:13:32.180 --> 00:13:34.010
  • our children.
  • 00:13:34.010 --> 00:13:34.270
  • But let me say this, when you
  • 00:13:34.270 --> 00:13:36.160
  • dedicate your child as a baby,
  • 00:13:36.160 --> 00:13:39.020
  • as a little child, it's not just
  • 00:13:39.020 --> 00:13:40.190
  • a beautiful Christian ceremony,
  • 00:13:40.190 --> 00:13:42.140
  • the prayer that's prayed
  • 00:13:42.140 --> 00:13:43.220
  • over that child, a prayer
  • 00:13:43.220 --> 00:13:45.160
  • that they will know Jesus Christ
  • 00:13:45.160 --> 00:13:47.040
  • personally,
  • 00:13:47.040 --> 00:13:47.270
  • that they'll live a life
  • 00:13:47.270 --> 00:13:49.010
  • filled with a Holy Spirit, that
  • 00:13:49.010 --> 00:13:50.170
  • they'll live a life on course
  • 00:13:50.170 --> 00:13:51.290
  • with God's purpose, that
  • 00:13:51.290 --> 00:13:53.140
  • they will serve God all of their
  • 00:13:53.140 --> 00:13:55.150
  • days, that God will give us
  • 00:13:55.150 --> 00:13:57.070
  • wisdom as parents, believe me,
  • 00:13:57.070 --> 00:13:59.000
  • that is a powerful thing that
  • 00:13:59.000 --> 00:14:00.180
  • you can do for your children.
  • 00:14:00.180 --> 00:14:03.050
  • So let's understand
  • 00:14:03.050 --> 00:14:04.140
  • that dedicating the Lord
  • 00:14:04.140 --> 00:14:06.180
  • is a commitment to him.
  • 00:14:06.180 --> 00:14:08.050
  • We commit to God before we see
  • 00:14:08.050 --> 00:14:10.220
  • miracles and we commit to God
  • 00:14:10.220 --> 00:14:12.160
  • still after we see the miracle.
  • 00:14:12.160 --> 00:14:15.070
  • So she brought the little boy
  • 00:14:15.070 --> 00:14:17.010
  • to the priest, to Eli,
  • 00:14:17.010 --> 00:14:20.010
  • for dedication.
  • 00:14:20.010 --> 00:14:22.080
  • She offered him to the Lord.
  • 00:14:22.080 --> 00:14:23.150
  • It says, "Therefore I also
  • 00:14:23.150 --> 00:14:25.280
  • have lent him to the Lord;
  • 00:14:25.280 --> 00:14:27.130
  • as long as he lives
  • 00:14:27.130 --> 00:14:29.000
  • he shall be lent to the Lord."
  • 00:14:29.000 --> 00:14:31.020
  • You know, in many ways,
  • 00:14:31.020 --> 00:14:33.150
  • in actual fact, God lends
  • 00:14:33.150 --> 00:14:34.130
  • them to us.
  • 00:14:34.130 --> 00:14:35.220
  • The Scripture talks about them
  • 00:14:35.220 --> 00:14:37.100
  • being a heritage from the Lord.
  • 00:14:37.100 --> 00:14:38.290
  • So, I mean their natural
  • 00:14:38.290 --> 00:14:40.160
  • heritage goes back to you,
  • 00:14:40.160 --> 00:14:42.050
  • obviously, and your parents
  • 00:14:42.050 --> 00:14:43.220
  • and then their parents,
  • 00:14:43.220 --> 00:14:45.090
  • but spiritually, God,
  • 00:14:45.090 --> 00:14:46.280
  • they are a gift from God.
  • 00:14:46.280 --> 00:14:48.160
  • They're a heritage from the Lord
  • 00:14:48.160 --> 00:14:50.180
  • and they're born with all of
  • 00:14:50.180 --> 00:14:52.080
  • God's possibilities
  • 00:14:52.080 --> 00:14:53.130
  • and purpose within them.
  • 00:14:53.130 --> 00:14:55.140
  • And so, in many ways,
  • 00:14:55.140 --> 00:14:56.230
  • we lend them--I mean,
  • 00:14:56.230 --> 00:14:58.280
  • the Lord lends children to us.
  • 00:14:58.280 --> 00:15:00.270
  • But what here Hannah
  • 00:15:00.270 --> 00:15:03.110
  • was doing was offering
  • 00:15:03.110 --> 00:15:04.150
  • her child to God again.
  • 00:15:04.150 --> 00:15:07.010
  • What a beautiful gift you can
  • 00:15:07.010 --> 00:15:08.180
  • give your children.
  • 00:15:08.180 --> 00:15:09.180
  • You pray over them.
  • 00:15:09.180 --> 00:15:10.230
  • You commit them to the Lord.
  • 00:15:10.230 --> 00:15:12.030
  • You believe they'll serve God
  • 00:15:12.030 --> 00:15:13.130
  • all of their days.
  • 00:15:13.130 --> 00:15:14.130
  • And even after you see
  • 00:15:14.130 --> 00:15:15.230
  • your miracle, whatever that is,
  • 00:15:15.230 --> 00:15:17.150
  • you don't stop thanking God
  • 00:15:17.150 --> 00:15:19.060
  • and committing them to God, and
  • 00:15:19.060 --> 00:15:20.250
  • believing that God will be their
  • 00:15:20.250 --> 00:15:22.180
  • portion for all of their days.
  • 00:15:22.180 --> 00:15:24.090
  • It may just sound small, but
  • 00:15:24.090 --> 00:15:26.050
  • believe me, there's very little
  • 00:15:26.050 --> 00:15:27.150
  • more than that you
  • 00:15:27.150 --> 00:15:28.190
  • can ever give your children
  • 00:15:28.190 --> 00:15:29.250
  • than just a commitment
  • 00:15:29.250 --> 00:15:30.230
  • that my children will serve God
  • 00:15:30.230 --> 00:15:33.120
  • 'til the end of their days.
  • 00:15:33.120 --> 00:15:36.010
  • Then the third thing that
  • 00:15:36.010 --> 00:15:37.150
  • obviously she did, which
  • 00:15:37.150 --> 00:15:39.140
  • was a gift for her children
  • 00:15:39.140 --> 00:15:41.050
  • and is a gift to many of us when
  • 00:15:41.050 --> 00:15:42.240
  • it comes to mums and mothers,
  • 00:15:42.240 --> 00:15:44.220
  • is she made sacrifices for them.
  • 00:15:44.230 --> 00:15:47.230
  • In some ways, mums these days,
  • 00:15:47.230 --> 00:15:50.000
  • often dads as well, but mums,
  • 00:15:50.090 --> 00:15:53.090
  • they make big sacrifices.
  • 00:15:53.090 --> 00:15:55.160
  • I don't think we
  • 00:15:55.160 --> 00:15:56.160
  • fully understand the sacrifices
  • 00:15:56.160 --> 00:15:58.250
  • a mother makes
  • 00:15:58.250 --> 00:16:00.040
  • for her little children.
  • 00:16:00.040 --> 00:16:01.150
  • And mums, you may feel
  • 00:16:01.150 --> 00:16:02.110
  • unappreciated at times.
  • 00:16:02.110 --> 00:16:04.100
  • You may feel at times
  • 00:16:04.100 --> 00:16:05.120
  • like the children
  • 00:16:05.120 --> 00:16:06.150
  • don't even appreciate it.
  • 00:16:06.150 --> 00:16:07.280
  • They don't even understand.
  • 00:16:07.280 --> 00:16:08.290
  • There's kind of no thanks
  • 00:16:08.290 --> 00:16:10.060
  • in what you did.
  • 00:16:10.060 --> 00:16:11.160
  • Well, back in those times,
  • 00:16:11.160 --> 00:16:13.170
  • this is what the Bible says
  • 00:16:13.170 --> 00:16:14.200
  • about Hannah.
  • 00:16:14.200 --> 00:16:16.020
  • In chapter 1, verse 22,
  • 00:16:16.020 --> 00:16:18.090
  • "Hannah did not go up, for
  • 00:16:18.090 --> 00:16:19.090
  • she said to her husband, 'Not
  • 00:16:19.090 --> 00:16:21.010
  • until the child is weaned.'"
  • 00:16:21.010 --> 00:16:22.200
  • In other words,
  • 00:16:22.200 --> 00:16:23.110
  • "I'm staying with my child."
  • 00:16:23.110 --> 00:16:24.110
  • "Then I will take him, that
  • 00:16:24.110 --> 00:16:25.290
  • he may appear before the Lord
  • 00:16:25.290 --> 00:16:27.070
  • and remain there forever."
  • 00:16:27.070 --> 00:16:30.010
  • In the next verse, the end of
  • 00:16:30.010 --> 00:16:31.080
  • the verse, verse 23, it says,
  • 00:16:31.080 --> 00:16:33.100
  • "Then the woman stayed
  • 00:16:33.100 --> 00:16:34.270
  • and nursed her son
  • 00:16:34.270 --> 00:16:36.080
  • until she had weaned him."
  • 00:16:36.080 --> 00:16:38.010
  • For her, while she was still
  • 00:16:38.010 --> 00:16:39.220
  • a nursing mum, that was
  • 00:16:39.220 --> 00:16:41.220
  • obviously her commitment.
  • 00:16:41.220 --> 00:16:43.080
  • That was obviously her priority.
  • 00:16:43.080 --> 00:16:45.090
  • When Bobbie had very small
  • 00:16:45.090 --> 00:16:47.280
  • children around her and the year
  • 00:16:47.280 --> 00:16:50.020
  • was 1996, for the first time
  • 00:16:50.020 --> 00:16:51.160
  • ever I went to England and I was
  • 00:16:51.160 --> 00:16:53.150
  • preaching over there in sort of
  • 00:16:53.150 --> 00:16:54.290
  • small village churches
  • 00:16:54.290 --> 00:16:55.270
  • and all of them.
  • 00:16:55.270 --> 00:16:57.070
  • Bobbie's at home with the kids
  • 00:16:57.070 --> 00:16:58.100
  • and I think she was
  • 00:16:58.100 --> 00:16:59.240
  • kind of feeling it.
  • 00:16:59.240 --> 00:17:00.280
  • In those days, there was no
  • 00:17:00.280 --> 00:17:01.200
  • Sisterhood, there was no Colour.
  • 00:17:01.200 --> 00:17:03.090
  • And the Holy Spirit gave her
  • 00:17:03.090 --> 00:17:04.140
  • a Word and the Word was,
  • 00:17:04.140 --> 00:17:06.050
  • "The fruit of Brian's life
  • 00:17:06.050 --> 00:17:07.200
  • is your fruit too."
  • 00:17:07.200 --> 00:17:08.240
  • And, you know, for her, that
  • 00:17:08.240 --> 00:17:09.250
  • was a tremendous, tremendous
  • 00:17:09.250 --> 00:17:11.100
  • source of encouragement.
  • 00:17:11.100 --> 00:17:12.280
  • And so, I think we should never,
  • 00:17:12.280 --> 00:17:15.030
  • ever underestimate when it comes
  • 00:17:15.030 --> 00:17:17.060
  • to our own mothers and when
  • 00:17:17.060 --> 00:17:18.210
  • it comes to our wives
  • 00:17:18.210 --> 00:17:19.250
  • who are mothers, the sacrifices,
  • 00:17:19.250 --> 00:17:21.210
  • the unseen that mother's make.
  • 00:17:21.210 --> 00:17:23.240
  • And what a great gift that is
  • 00:17:23.240 --> 00:17:24.190
  • to your children.
  • 00:17:24.190 --> 00:17:26.000
  • And for those of us who have
  • 00:17:26.000 --> 00:17:27.000
  • a mother or are obviously
  • 00:17:27.000 --> 00:17:29.010
  • married to a mother don't forget
  • 00:17:29.010 --> 00:17:30.200
  • always the Bible says, "Honor
  • 00:17:30.200 --> 00:17:32.090
  • your mother and your father."
  • 00:17:32.090 --> 00:17:33.170
  • A day comes when you stop having
  • 00:17:33.170 --> 00:17:35.050
  • to obey them,
  • 00:17:35.050 --> 00:17:36.140
  • but I don't think we ever
  • 00:17:36.140 --> 00:17:37.190
  • should stop honoring them.
  • 00:17:37.190 --> 00:17:39.250
  • I mean, Solomon, I love
  • 00:17:39.250 --> 00:17:41.170
  • some of the things he says right
  • 00:17:41.170 --> 00:17:42.290
  • throughout the Book of Proverbs
  • 00:17:42.290 --> 00:17:44.120
  • and he talks a lot
  • 00:17:44.120 --> 00:17:45.130
  • about your mother.
  • 00:17:45.130 --> 00:17:46.070
  • He talks a lot actually
  • 00:17:46.070 --> 00:17:47.150
  • about your father as well.
  • 00:17:47.150 --> 00:17:49.220
  • In Proverbs 4, verse 3, he said,
  • 00:17:49.220 --> 00:17:51.200
  • "When I was my father's son."
  • 00:17:51.200 --> 00:17:53.110
  • In other words, "When I was
  • 00:17:53.110 --> 00:17:54.230
  • still in my father's household,
  • 00:17:54.230 --> 00:17:56.180
  • tender and the only one
  • 00:17:56.180 --> 00:17:58.140
  • in the sight of my mother."
  • 00:17:58.140 --> 00:18:00.080
  • That's cool about mums.
  • 00:18:00.080 --> 00:18:02.080
  • As far as they're concerned,
  • 00:18:02.080 --> 00:18:03.140
  • you are the only one or maybe if
  • 00:18:03.140 --> 00:18:05.240
  • you've got a couple of brothers
  • 00:18:05.240 --> 00:18:06.250
  • and sisters, they, along with
  • 00:18:06.250 --> 00:18:08.240
  • you, they are the only ones.
  • 00:18:08.240 --> 00:18:11.050
  • That's the way a mother looks.
  • 00:18:11.050 --> 00:18:12.160
  • And, well, in chapter 23,
  • 00:18:12.180 --> 00:18:15.180
  • verse 25 of Proverbs,
  • 00:18:15.180 --> 00:18:17.220
  • Solomon says, "Let your father
  • 00:18:17.220 --> 00:18:18.200
  • and your mother be glad
  • 00:18:18.200 --> 00:18:20.040
  • and let her who bore you
  • 00:18:20.040 --> 00:18:22.070
  • rejoice."
  • 00:18:22.070 --> 00:18:23.010
  • Bore you doesn't mean bored you,
  • 00:18:23.010 --> 00:18:24.270
  • it means who gave you birth.
  • 00:18:24.270 --> 00:18:27.250
  • You know, let's believe that we,
  • 00:18:27.250 --> 00:18:30.020
  • in our own way, just like Samuel
  • 00:18:30.020 --> 00:18:32.020
  • has served God for all his days
  • 00:18:32.020 --> 00:18:33.250
  • as a result of his mother's
  • 00:18:33.250 --> 00:18:35.070
  • prayer, let's believe also that
  • 00:18:35.070 --> 00:18:37.100
  • we always bring gladness and
  • 00:18:37.100 --> 00:18:39.090
  • enable our mothers to rejoice.
  • 00:18:39.090 --> 00:18:41.110
  • And it's never too late
  • 00:18:41.110 --> 00:18:42.090
  • to start right now.
  • 00:18:42.090 --> 00:18:44.100
  • She made sacrifices for him
  • 00:18:44.100 --> 00:18:47.020
  • and she kept the boy close
  • 00:18:47.020 --> 00:18:49.100
  • to the house of God, and to me,
  • 00:18:49.100 --> 00:18:52.090
  • that's not insignificant.
  • 00:18:52.090 --> 00:18:53.270
  • She stayed close.
  • 00:18:53.270 --> 00:18:55.290
  • She talked to Eli and described
  • 00:18:55.290 --> 00:18:58.060
  • herself as the woman
  • 00:18:58.060 --> 00:19:00.080
  • who stood with Eli
  • 00:19:00.080 --> 00:19:02.210
  • or beside Eli and prayed.
  • 00:19:02.210 --> 00:19:04.260
  • Eli, obviously, being
  • 00:19:04.260 --> 00:19:06.240
  • the minister, God's priest,
  • 00:19:06.240 --> 00:19:08.260
  • represented
  • 00:19:08.260 --> 00:19:09.210
  • the house of the Lord.
  • 00:19:09.210 --> 00:19:10.280
  • And she said, "I stood there."
  • 00:19:10.280 --> 00:19:13.070
  • It's verse 26, "O my lord!
  • 00:19:13.070 --> 00:19:15.080
  • As your soul lives, my lord, I
  • 00:19:15.080 --> 00:19:17.160
  • am the woman," speaking of Eli,
  • 00:19:17.160 --> 00:19:19.130
  • "who stood by you here,
  • 00:19:19.130 --> 00:19:20.280
  • praying to the Lord."
  • 00:19:20.280 --> 00:19:22.280
  • In other words, she positioned
  • 00:19:22.280 --> 00:19:24.030
  • herself as a woman of faith
  • 00:19:24.030 --> 00:19:26.070
  • and a woman of prayer, beside
  • 00:19:26.070 --> 00:19:28.010
  • the priest, part of the house
  • 00:19:28.010 --> 00:19:30.280
  • of God, and she saw the fruit
  • 00:19:30.280 --> 00:19:32.170
  • in her son.
  • 00:19:32.170 --> 00:19:33.170
  • In chapter 2, verse 11,
  • 00:19:33.170 --> 00:19:35.070
  • 1 Samuel, it said,
  • 00:19:35.070 --> 00:19:37.030
  • "But the child ministered to
  • 00:19:37.030 --> 00:19:38.190
  • the Lord before Eli the priest."
  • 00:19:38.190 --> 00:19:41.100
  • In other words, the boy growing
  • 00:19:41.100 --> 00:19:42.240
  • up, he stayed close to the house
  • 00:19:42.240 --> 00:19:45.110
  • of God and he ministered there.
  • 00:19:45.130 --> 00:19:48.130
  • Don't ever underestimate
  • 00:19:48.130 --> 00:19:50.020
  • the modern equivalent,
  • 00:19:50.020 --> 00:19:51.080
  • there was the tabernacle,
  • 00:19:51.080 --> 00:19:52.120
  • there was Moses' tabernacle.
  • 00:19:52.120 --> 00:19:53.280
  • There was Solomon's temple
  • 00:19:53.280 --> 00:19:55.050
  • and today you can't compare
  • 00:19:55.050 --> 00:19:57.210
  • completely a pastor with
  • 00:19:57.210 --> 00:19:58.290
  • an Old Testament priest because
  • 00:19:58.290 --> 00:20:00.120
  • in those days, the Scripture
  • 00:20:00.120 --> 00:20:01.270
  • says there was no widespread
  • 00:20:01.270 --> 00:20:03.190
  • revelation.
  • 00:20:03.190 --> 00:20:04.200
  • In other words, the only way
  • 00:20:04.200 --> 00:20:05.150
  • God talked really
  • 00:20:05.150 --> 00:20:06.120
  • was through the priest.
  • 00:20:06.120 --> 00:20:07.110
  • Well, these are different days
  • 00:20:07.110 --> 00:20:08.180
  • than that, but when I think
  • 00:20:08.180 --> 00:20:10.200
  • about today standing
  • 00:20:10.200 --> 00:20:11.190
  • with your pastor,
  • 00:20:11.190 --> 00:20:12.130
  • I don't just think about
  • 00:20:12.130 --> 00:20:13.130
  • the pastor, I think about
  • 00:20:13.130 --> 00:20:14.230
  • being a part of the family,
  • 00:20:14.230 --> 00:20:16.150
  • being a part of the house God,
  • 00:20:16.150 --> 00:20:18.020
  • being a part of the church.
  • 00:20:18.020 --> 00:20:19.090
  • And I may sound like a pastor
  • 00:20:19.090 --> 00:20:21.100
  • who obviously has a bias,
  • 00:20:21.100 --> 00:20:22.290
  • but I have 44 years of ministry
  • 00:20:22.290 --> 00:20:25.190
  • experience and, to be honest
  • 00:20:25.190 --> 00:20:27.130
  • with you, I can tell you
  • 00:20:27.130 --> 00:20:28.190
  • some horror stories when people
  • 00:20:28.190 --> 00:20:30.060
  • didn't understand the beauty
  • 00:20:30.060 --> 00:20:31.150
  • and the power of raising their
  • 00:20:31.150 --> 00:20:33.110
  • children in the house of God.
  • 00:20:33.110 --> 00:20:35.130
  • And do you know, it's so easy to
  • 00:20:35.130 --> 00:20:38.130
  • put ourselves and our own needs
  • 00:20:38.130 --> 00:20:40.140
  • ahead of our children
  • 00:20:40.140 --> 00:20:41.240
  • when it comes to these things.
  • 00:20:41.240 --> 00:20:43.070
  • And sadly, you can dislocate
  • 00:20:43.070 --> 00:20:44.290
  • your children
  • 00:20:44.290 --> 00:20:46.030
  • from a great youth ministry,
  • 00:20:46.030 --> 00:20:47.170
  • from a great kids' ministry,
  • 00:20:47.170 --> 00:20:48.270
  • from a positive peer pressure,
  • 00:20:48.270 --> 00:20:50.270
  • from friends that really were
  • 00:20:50.270 --> 00:20:52.230
  • standing with them, and to me,
  • 00:20:52.230 --> 00:20:54.230
  • one of the greatest gifts
  • 00:20:54.230 --> 00:20:55.230
  • you can give your children
  • 00:20:55.230 --> 00:20:56.160
  • on a cold, wet, windy, Sunday
  • 00:20:56.160 --> 00:20:58.160
  • morning in the middle is winter
  • 00:20:58.160 --> 00:21:01.000
  • is to have a commitment
  • 00:21:01.000 --> 00:21:02.180
  • to God's house because believe
  • 00:21:02.180 --> 00:21:04.070
  • me, you are setting a way.
  • 00:21:04.070 --> 00:21:05.140
  • She stood beside Eli
  • 00:21:05.140 --> 00:21:08.080
  • and here her son,
  • 00:21:08.080 --> 00:21:09.080
  • her little son is ministering
  • 00:21:09.080 --> 00:21:11.080
  • now beside the priest.
  • 00:21:11.080 --> 00:21:13.080
  • He stayed in the family of God
  • 00:21:13.080 --> 00:21:15.100
  • and grew up serving God
  • 00:21:15.100 --> 00:21:17.000
  • and, in fact, became
  • 00:21:17.000 --> 00:21:18.040
  • a mighty priest himself.
  • 00:21:18.040 --> 00:21:20.050
  • It's a great gift
  • 00:21:20.050 --> 00:21:21.180
  • to your children when you raise
  • 00:21:21.180 --> 00:21:23.060
  • them in a positive,
  • 00:21:23.060 --> 00:21:24.160
  • healthy, spiritual family
  • 00:21:24.160 --> 00:21:26.260
  • and community
  • 00:21:26.260 --> 00:21:27.170
  • that's God glorified,
  • 00:21:27.170 --> 00:21:28.180
  • that speaks life into them,
  • 00:21:28.180 --> 00:21:30.040
  • speaks positivity into them.
  • 00:21:30.040 --> 00:21:31.280
  • It's one of the great things
  • 00:21:31.280 --> 00:21:33.130
  • we can give our children.
  • 00:21:33.130 --> 00:21:34.290
  • And the fifth thing that I
  • 00:21:34.290 --> 00:21:37.020
  • believe was a gift from Hannah
  • 00:21:37.020 --> 00:21:39.230
  • to her children in verse 23,
  • 00:21:40.090 --> 00:21:43.090
  • she didn't just commit him
  • 00:21:43.090 --> 00:21:44.190
  • to the Lord, Samuel, before he
  • 00:21:44.190 --> 00:21:46.130
  • was born and dedicate him
  • 00:21:46.130 --> 00:21:48.080
  • after he was born,
  • 00:21:48.080 --> 00:21:49.130
  • but she kept on believing for
  • 00:21:49.130 --> 00:21:51.200
  • God's Word to be established.
  • 00:21:51.200 --> 00:21:53.220
  • In verse 23, 1 Samuel chapter 1
  • 00:21:54.230 --> 00:21:57.230
  • it says, "So Elkanah
  • 00:21:57.230 --> 00:21:59.200
  • her husband said to her,
  • 00:21:59.200 --> 00:22:01.010
  • 'Do what seems best to you.'"
  • 00:22:01.010 --> 00:22:03.010
  • By the way, women's intuition
  • 00:22:03.010 --> 00:22:05.150
  • should never be underestimated.
  • 00:22:05.150 --> 00:22:07.120
  • I think sometimes if we allow
  • 00:22:07.120 --> 00:22:09.050
  • women to do what seems best
  • 00:22:09.050 --> 00:22:10.110
  • to them when they've got
  • 00:22:10.110 --> 00:22:12.070
  • a prayer life, it's about
  • 00:22:12.070 --> 00:22:13.160
  • the best thing you can do.
  • 00:22:13.160 --> 00:22:15.000
  • "Wait until you have weaned him.
  • 00:22:15.000 --> 00:22:16.230
  • Only let the Lord
  • 00:22:16.230 --> 00:22:18.030
  • establish His word."
  • 00:22:18.030 --> 00:22:20.150
  • In other words, "God's given you
  • 00:22:20.150 --> 00:22:21.280
  • a Word, the Word is that he'll
  • 00:22:21.280 --> 00:22:23.230
  • serve God
  • 00:22:23.230 --> 00:22:24.140
  • for the rest of his days.
  • 00:22:24.140 --> 00:22:25.280
  • And so now, do what seems best
  • 00:22:25.280 --> 00:22:27.290
  • to you, Hannah.
  • 00:22:27.290 --> 00:22:29.000
  • And let's keep on believing
  • 00:22:29.000 --> 00:22:30.280
  • that God'll establish his Word."
  • 00:22:30.280 --> 00:22:33.040
  • I already mentioned,
  • 00:22:33.040 --> 00:22:34.180
  • you gotta get your own Word.
  • 00:22:34.180 --> 00:22:36.040
  • You gotta get our own revelation
  • 00:22:36.040 --> 00:22:37.110
  • when it comes to believing
  • 00:22:37.110 --> 00:22:38.210
  • for your children.
  • 00:22:38.210 --> 00:22:40.030
  • Bobbie and I were
  • 00:22:40.030 --> 00:22:41.030
  • in a breakfast restaurant,
  • 00:22:41.030 --> 00:22:43.230
  • and we were there to meet up
  • 00:22:43.230 --> 00:22:45.040
  • with Joel and Esther
  • 00:22:45.040 --> 00:22:47.110
  • from New York.
  • 00:22:47.110 --> 00:22:48.040
  • And they told us that day the
  • 00:22:48.040 --> 00:22:50.000
  • great, great news that they were
  • 00:22:50.000 --> 00:22:52.000
  • pregnant, that they were having
  • 00:22:52.000 --> 00:22:53.170
  • a little boy.
  • 00:22:53.170 --> 00:22:54.260
  • Well, it was an awesome moment.
  • 00:22:54.260 --> 00:22:57.000
  • I remember standing up
  • 00:22:57.000 --> 00:22:58.100
  • and giving them both a big hug
  • 00:22:58.100 --> 00:23:00.120
  • and so it was a great day.
  • 00:23:00.120 --> 00:23:02.030
  • But when we went to leave,
  • 00:23:02.030 --> 00:23:03.120
  • someone had paid our bill and
  • 00:23:03.120 --> 00:23:06.030
  • I never knew who it was, but
  • 00:23:06.030 --> 00:23:07.140
  • there was only one other couple
  • 00:23:07.140 --> 00:23:08.140
  • and they were close to us.
  • 00:23:08.140 --> 00:23:09.160
  • And I kind of knew whoever paid
  • 00:23:09.160 --> 00:23:10.290
  • that bill, probably heard
  • 00:23:10.290 --> 00:23:12.200
  • our whole conversation.
  • 00:23:12.200 --> 00:23:14.100
  • Rolling on a full year, in fact,
  • 00:23:14.100 --> 00:23:16.150
  • a year to the day,
  • 00:23:16.150 --> 00:23:17.200
  • straight after Christmas,
  • 00:23:17.200 --> 00:23:19.260
  • exactly a year after that
  • 00:23:19.260 --> 00:23:21.290
  • happened and I was out jogging.
  • 00:23:21.290 --> 00:23:24.210
  • It was the good ol' days.
  • 00:23:24.210 --> 00:23:26.190
  • I was out jogging from Bondi
  • 00:23:26.230 --> 00:23:29.230
  • to Tamarama around
  • 00:23:29.230 --> 00:23:30.280
  • that beautiful track, and a guy
  • 00:23:31.040 --> 00:23:34.040
  • stops me which, you know,
  • 00:23:34.040 --> 00:23:35.140
  • is kind of inconvenient
  • 00:23:35.140 --> 00:23:36.180
  • when you're exercising.
  • 00:23:36.180 --> 00:23:37.280
  • But being the pastor,
  • 00:23:37.280 --> 00:23:39.060
  • I thought I better stop.
  • 00:23:39.060 --> 00:23:40.120
  • And he said, "Pastor Brian,
  • 00:23:40.120 --> 00:23:41.260
  • Pastor Brian, he says,
  • 00:23:41.260 --> 00:23:42.140
  • "can I just quickly tell you
  • 00:23:42.140 --> 00:23:43.280
  • a story?"
  • 00:23:43.280 --> 00:23:45.020
  • Well, I never expected
  • 00:23:45.020 --> 00:23:46.070
  • what was coming.
  • 00:23:46.070 --> 00:23:47.100
  • He began to tell me how one year
  • 00:23:47.100 --> 00:23:49.220
  • before he and his wife were
  • 00:23:49.220 --> 00:23:51.170
  • in a restaurant in Bondi
  • 00:23:51.170 --> 00:23:52.240
  • and they couldn't have children.
  • 00:23:52.240 --> 00:23:55.040
  • And so, they were feeling
  • 00:23:55.040 --> 00:23:56.150
  • desperate and they made
  • 00:23:56.150 --> 00:23:57.140
  • a decision
  • 00:23:57.140 --> 00:23:58.050
  • that for the first 30 days
  • 00:23:58.050 --> 00:23:59.290
  • of the next year,
  • 00:23:59.290 --> 00:24:01.030
  • that they were going to,
  • 00:24:01.030 --> 00:24:03.020
  • they were gonna fast and pray.
  • 00:24:03.020 --> 00:24:05.080
  • So, in other words, not eat,
  • 00:24:05.080 --> 00:24:07.000
  • just pray and believe God.
  • 00:24:07.000 --> 00:24:08.230
  • Well, here's the amazing thing
  • 00:24:08.230 --> 00:24:09.260
  • is, rolling on a year
  • 00:24:09.260 --> 00:24:12.110
  • he's telling me this story
  • 00:24:12.110 --> 00:24:13.210
  • but he's got a beautiful little
  • 00:24:13.210 --> 00:24:14.280
  • 3-month-old daughter
  • 00:24:14.280 --> 00:24:16.000
  • strapped to him.
  • 00:24:16.000 --> 00:24:17.100
  • I was overwhelmed
  • 00:24:17.100 --> 00:24:19.130
  • with the goodness of God.
  • 00:24:19.130 --> 00:24:20.260
  • He said, "We paid your bill even
  • 00:24:20.260 --> 00:24:22.080
  • though when we heard Joel's and
  • 00:24:22.080 --> 00:24:23.230
  • Esther's story, we kind of felt,
  • 00:24:23.230 --> 00:24:25.110
  • we felt the pain of it."
  • 00:24:25.110 --> 00:24:27.010
  • He said,
  • 00:24:27.010 --> 00:24:27.250
  • "But we paid your bill anyway."
  • 00:24:27.250 --> 00:24:29.230
  • You know, the bill, I guess it's
  • 00:24:29.230 --> 00:24:31.000
  • a big thing in some way but it's
  • 00:24:31.000 --> 00:24:32.120
  • such a small thing, but the more
  • 00:24:32.120 --> 00:24:34.060
  • important thing was they were
  • 00:24:34.060 --> 00:24:35.120
  • trusting and believing God.
  • 00:24:35.120 --> 00:24:36.280
  • And so, wind on a year
  • 00:24:36.280 --> 00:24:39.170
  • and here he's holding
  • 00:24:39.170 --> 00:24:41.030
  • their little miracle.
  • 00:24:41.030 --> 00:24:42.110
  • Let's believe God
  • 00:24:42.110 --> 00:24:43.170
  • when it comes to his Word.
  • 00:24:43.170 --> 00:24:45.260
  • Let's believe God when it comes
  • 00:24:45.260 --> 00:24:48.140
  • to a establishing his Word.
  • 00:24:48.140 --> 00:24:50.130
  • And Mum, if you're a woman
  • 00:24:50.130 --> 00:24:52.040
  • of faith, if you're a woman
  • 00:24:52.040 --> 00:24:53.250
  • of prayer, believe me,
  • 00:24:53.250 --> 00:24:55.030
  • that's not a small thing.
  • 00:24:55.030 --> 00:24:56.190
  • It is perhaps, beside loving
  • 00:24:56.190 --> 00:24:58.150
  • your children, the greatest
  • 00:24:58.150 --> 00:25:00.110
  • single gift you could give them.
  • 00:25:00.110 --> 00:25:02.150
  • - Brian: Well, thanks
  • 00:25:07.140 --> 00:25:08.010
  • once again for joining us
  • 00:25:08.010 --> 00:25:09.190

  • and spoken into your life.
  • 00:25:15.160 --> 00:25:16.170
  • And I was talking about mums
  • 00:25:16.170 --> 00:25:18.150
  • and to mums, but the principles
  • 00:25:18.150 --> 00:25:20.100
  • apply to all of us.
  • 00:25:20.100 --> 00:25:21.210
  • Have an amazing week.
  • 00:25:21.210 --> 00:25:22.270
  • God bless you, and I
