There is much to be desired when it comes to spending time alone. It's only been in the last few years that the floodgates of voices have been opened to everyone at any time.
"Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,"
Ephesians 3:20 KJV
Where would the world be if Abraham had not believed to see the goodness of the Lord when he put his oldest servant in charge of all his possessions and made him promise to find a suitable wife for his son, Isaac?
When we are stretched as far as we can go; when there is no one around who can help us; when we are out of all options and there is absolutely nothing we can do, that is when intense desire for change will cause us to fall, broken, before God just like Hannah did. There are times when only God can bring about change. That is when the impossible can become possible.
