God Used Samson, "The Player" - Alternative View - October 3

The woman gave birth to a boy and named him Samson. He grew and the LORD blessed him (Judges 13:24). When you realize God's purpose for your life isn't just about you, He will use you in a mighty way.

God Used Samson, "the Player"

Scripture Reading: Judges 13  

Samson was every woman's dream and every man's nightmare.  He had supernatural strength, heroic bravery and the fighting spirit of a warrior. God gave him these gifts because his parents dedicated him to the Lord from his birth.  In time, Samson's love for women caused him to compromise his call.  When he lost his purity, he also lost the strength and power that God had given him.  Chasing the pleasures of the world left him powerless, defeated and humiliated.

However, in his  brokenness at the end of his life Samson rediscovered the call God had given him to liberate his people. When he used  the blessings of God to serve others he changed history.

Don't chase the pleasures of the world but dedicate your life to serving God and others.  No matter where you are, it's not too late.  When you realize God's purpose for your life isn't just about you, He will use you in a mighty way.
