A Drama King

March 23 2014A man of extremes.  That’s what I think of as I read the story of Samson.

Killing lions with his bare hands, betting big on riddles no one can answer without using deceit, killing to settle his bet, dramatically burning other’s crops in revenge only to have his family burned to death…..the center of attention over and over and over again.

Yet God used him.  God’s spirit came upon him several times and God used him against the enemy of the day – the Philistines. 

This is a great example of how can and does use anyone who makes themself available to him.

Dear God, we praise your name today.  Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord Almighty!  We ask that you will help us to always be available to you.  We are here to complete your purpose – the things you have prepared in advance for us to do.  We pray in the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
