For years Hannah prayed for a baby. Eventually the Lord blessed her with Samuel, a baby boy. She acknowledged Samuel as a blessing of the Lord. “For this child I prayed” she told the priest. 

But her prayers for the child didn’t stop there. She continued to pray for him. She put forth effort to help him, to love him, to care for him. In doing that she honored God’s blessing in her life. 

You might be praying for an opportunity to do more for the Lord. He will provide. When He does bless you with an opportunity don’t just be grateful for an open door, but actually walk through it and stay on the path it leads. Learn from Hannah, continue to put forth effort.
