Sunday Sermon Outline: Rejoicing in the Lord, 1 Samuel 2

“Rejoicing in the Lord”
1 Samuel 2:1-10

Introduction: 1 Samuel 1:10-11; 1 Samuel 1:14, “How long will you make yourself drunk? Put away your wine from you.”
     “No, my lord, I am a woman oppressed in spirit; I have drunk neither wine nor strong drink, but I have poured out my soul before the LORD” (1 Samuel 1:15).
     “Go in peace; and may the God of Israel grant your petition that you have asked of Him” (1 Samuel 1:17).
     1 Samuel 1:19, “Elkanah had relations with Hannah his wife, and the LORD remembered her.”
     “For this boy I prayed, and the LORD has given me my petition which I asked of Him. [28] So I have also dedicated him to the LORD; as long as he lives he is dedicated to the LORD” (1 Samuel 1:27-28).

I. The Goodness of God v. 1
     “My heart exults in the LORD; my horn is exalted in the LORD, my mouth speaks boldly against my enemies, because I rejoice in Your salvation.”

Psalm 34; Romans 8:28

II. The Greatness of God vs. 2-3
     “There is no one holy like the LORD, indeed, there is no one besides You, nor is there any rock like our God. [3] Boast no more so very proudly, do not let arrogance come out of your mouth; for the LORD is a God of knowledge, and with Him actions are weighed.”

     1 Samuel 2:12, “Now the sons of Eli were worthless men; they did not know the LORD.” “I am about to judge [Eli’s] house forever for the iniquity which he knew, because his sons brought a curse on themselves and he did not rebuke them” (1 Samuel 3:13).

Jeremiah 11:20; Hebrews 4:12-13; Psalm 95:1-3

III. The Government of God vs. 4-8
     “The bows of the mighty are shattered, but the feeble gird on strength. [5] Those who were full hire themselves out for bread, but those who were hungry cease to hunger. Even the barren gives birth to seven, but she who has many children languishes. [6] The LORD kills and makes alive; He brings down to Sheol and raises up. [7] The LORD makes poor and rich; He brings low, He also exalts. [8] He raises the poor from the dust, He lifts the needy from the ash heap To make them sit with nobles, and inherit a seat of honor; for the pillars of the earth are the LORD's, and He set the world on them.”

Psalm 47:7-8; Revelation 19:6

IV. The Glory of God vs. 9-10
     “He keeps the feet of His godly ones, but the wicked ones are silenced in darkness; for not by might shall a man prevail. [10] Those who contend with the LORD will be shattered; against them He will thunder 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 of His anointed.”

Acts 17:31; Isaiah 9:6-7; Hebrews 13:5; Psalm 95:6-7; 5:4-8; 2:12; 128:1

Conclusion: 1 Samuel 2:21, “The LORD visited Hannah; and she conceived and gave birth to three sons and two daughters. And the boy Samuel grew before the LORD.”

Mark 10:29-31; Ephesians 1:3; Revelation 18:2, 4-5, 20; Luke 14:11; 1 Peter 5:5-6; Revelation 19:16; Ephesians 1:10; Revelation 1:5-6
