The story of Samson’s life stresses me out. He’s such a foolish man! Yet God has anointed his life and uses him to rescue Israel. He weaves in and out of foolishness, pride, lust and impulsiveness. He picks horrible, nagging women and they mostly ruin his life.
He’s a prime example of God being able to use us despite ourselves. This guy can’t get out of his own way (which will eventually catch up with him).
Think of a time you let your own tendencies get in your way. How did God redeem the situation?
Something I love about him is how he anticipates our weaknesses. Our failures don’t turn in to his failures. He just adjusts his plan and continues to fulfill his purpose.
He’s the best!
