THOUGHT OF THE DAY
• A mother’s praise for her child!
1 Samuel 2:1-10 AMP
 Hannah prayed and said, “My heart rejoices and triumphs in the LORD; My horn (strength) is lifted up in the LORD, My mouth has opened wide [to speak boldly] against my enemies, Because I rejoice in Your salvation.  “There is no one holy like the LORD, There is no one besides You, There is no Rock like our God.  “Do not go on boasting so very proudly, Do not let arrogance come out of your mouth; For the LORD is a God of knowledge, And by Him actions are weighed (examined).  “The bows of the mighty are broken, But those who have stumbled equip themselves with strength.  “Those who were full hire themselves out for bread, But those who were hungry cease [to hunger]. Even the barren [woman] gives birth to seven, But she who has many children withers away.  “The LORD puts to death and makes alive; He brings down to Sheol (the grave) and raises up [from the grave].  “The LORD makes poor and makes rich; He brings low and He lifts up.  “He raises up the poor from the dust, He lifts up the needy from the ash heap To make them sit with nobles, And inherit a seat of honor and glory; For the pillars of the earth are the LORD’S, And He set the land on them.  “He guards the feet of His godly (faithful) ones, But the wicked ones are silenced and perish in darkness; For a man shall not prevail by might.  “The adversaries of the LORD will be broken to pieces; He will thunder against them in the heavens, The LORD will judge the ends of the earth; And He will give strength to His king, And will exalt the horn (strength) of His anointed.”
