MFM Daily Devotional 22nd July 2022 OUTLINE
It is often said that life is unfair. The world is not a bed of roses. Mankind is confronted by different kinds of challenges right from the Garden of Eden after the fall of man though this was never part of God’s original design for man. The challenges facing mankind are not limited to a particular race, nation, people or tribe but it is universal in scope.
Hannah was an example of people mocked by life. She tasted the bitter pills of this unfair life for a period of time. She was married to a loving and caring husband. She entered the marriage with great aspiration and expectation of being fruitful within a set time frame like many couples. Alas, her expectation of motherhood suffered a devastating setback coupled with mockery and provocation of spirit by her rival – Peninah.
Hannah endured a painful period of barrenness which made her an object of ridicule. Beloved, one could be mocked by life when expectations are dashed and unexpected dark experiences of life are intruding into one’s life, vision and purpose. Dashed hopes, unmet needs, unfulfilled desires, scourge of affliction and hardship, financial scarcity, sicknesses, reproach, barrenness of any form, satanic attacks etc., are the various ways that life is using to mock humanity. Are you being mocked by life?

Samson was mocked by life (Judges 16:25); the returned Jewish exiles were also mocked (Nehemiah 4:1). Hannah was mocked by life (1 Samuel 1:7); even our Lord Jesus Christ was mocked (Matthew 27: 39-43). However, the Lord arose for them and turned the tide against their enemies. Wherever life has been mocking you, just like the Lord enlarged the mouth of Hannah over her enemies, so shall God do for you, in the name of Jesus.
But you need to hold on to your faith, strengthen your belief in God, demonstrate your total dependence on Him by praying always about the challenge, be committed to Kingdom service and your morning of joy shall appear suddenly, in the name of Jesus.
