    WOMEN OF FAITH
    FROM BARRENNESS TO BLESSEDNESS


    WEEK FIVE

    1) Manoah's wife
    2) Hannah


    INTRODUCTION

    We have been studying Women of Barrenness. Sarah, Rebekah, Rachel and Leah were all connected with the patriarchs of Israel: Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Israel). Blessing followed these men and the women God gave them. Each had a unique and compelling story to tell. Life was not easy. The constant travel, the dust and dirt, the endless labor of daily life, and the personal problems of barrenness and humility kept them very discouraged at times.

    However, God's mercy, faithfulness, and blessing touched each of these women. The key to their uniqueness was the way God brought them to a place of worshipping Him. For Sarah, it was the miracle birth of Isaac at 90 years of age. She said, "God has made laughter for me, everyone who hears will laugh with me." (Gen. 21:6) For Rebekah, it was her response when asked to go with Abraham's servant. "I will go," she said without hesitation because she knew it was God who had sent the servant. (Gen. 24:58) For Rachel, it didn't happen until Joseph was born, and she said, "God has taken away my reproach." (Gen. 30:23) For Leah, it came after her fourth child was born, and she responded, "This time I will praise the LORD." (Gen. 29:35)

    Now we'll move forward to examine other Women of Barrenness whom God blessed in a special way.


    DAY ONE
    Manoah's wife/Samson's mother

    1. Read Judges 13:1-25. What was the condition of Israel at this time?

      Identify the "certain man" of verse 2.

    2. Describe the incredible scene in verses 2-5. How was it similar to the account in Luke 1:11-17?

    3. What did the woman do after the angel appeared to her? What additional information did she share with Manoah?

      Nazarite means "separate" or "one who is separated unto the LORD." This did not mean that the person would be a hermit, but rather that the person would follow the rules of the vow as stated in the text. Anyone could, for a season, make this vow and follow its requirements for purity. Other examples in Scripture of someone taking a Nazarite vow are Samuel (1 Sam. 1:11-28) and John the Baptist (Luke 1:15). It is believed that Paul could also have made this vow. (Acts 21:23-26)

    4. What did Manoah do in verse 8?

    5. How did God respond? (vv.9-14)

    6. What did the angel of the LORD say to Manoah?



    LESSONS AND APPLICATIONS

    1. God's power and His presence are awesome, and He demonstrates them in every age. (1 Chron. 29:10-13) How does God reveal Himself to you? Do you see Him as awesome?

      AWE (#3372) Meaning: A very positive feeling of reverence for God which may be expressed in piety or formal worship. Holy respect, trembling. (Lexicon, p. 1733.)

    2. God is honored when His people live holy lives. (Rom. 12:1-2) How are you living your life today?

    3. Prayer is conversation with God. He hears our hearts. (John 17) What prayer has God answered for you today? Are you grateful for His answer?
