1 Samuel 2.27
A holy man came to Eli and said: "This is God's message: I revealed myself openly to your ancestors when they were Pharaoh's slaves in Egypt.
what love, lord! what love! while we were yet slaves to ourselves and whatever we thought was the best you go and reveal yourself openly to us, you go and show us your way, how much better we can be with you than apart from you, how our only way to live is with you - we can never do without you. thank you that our imprisonment is never a hindrance to you reaching out to us, thank you that our circumstances, situations never get in the way of you showing us your way, giving us the only chance at real life, real living. thank you lord for your grand plan, for your great sovereignty, and thank you that you can make it all happen greatly and wonderfully. you are the one and only, the one true God.
