In 1 Samuel 2:1-10 Hannah sings a song of praise to God for giving her a son. This song contains the major themes found in the books of Samuel. By giving Hannah a son, God has shown his preference for the humble. He often works to exalt the humble while also humbling the exalted. These things show the almighty sovereignty of God. Such an action can be seen in the calling of David, the youngest of Jesse’s sons, and ultimately in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Messiah who was the object of Hannah’s hope as seen from the conclusion of her song.
