Powerful Performance

Today's reading: Judges 16:23-31

The Philistine royalty brought Samson out to "entertain" them at a feast where they were celebrating Samson's capture and defeat. They praised their god (little "g"), Dagon, for giving Samson into their hands. But God (big "G") was in control and had different plans for the evening. In response to his prayer, God once again empowers a now humbled and blind Samson, who literally brings down the house on the Philistine lords and guests, killing "more than those whom he had killed during his life" (vs. 30).

What does this passage show about God's power, control and plan? What does it reveal about how God can and does use and work through us in all circumstances? Tami

Tami, It is amazing when a person will surrender,be humbled to be used by God to do the impossible! Samson is proof as we can see God's grace and mercy towards Samson and to us who disobey,rebel and fail Him way too many times will use us when we are willing to let Him use us so that He is the One Who gets all the honor, glory and praise!
Another good lesson, Tami!
Thank you!
