Today’s Reading – Judges Chapters 13-15
Samson led Israel for twenty years in the days of the Philistines. Judges 15:20
Samson was more than the guy who fell in love with Delilah. Samson single handedly took on the Philistines who had been brutally ruling over the Israelites for 40 years.
Samson was a one man wrecking crew.
After all, who would want to stand against him?
But that won’t keep the cycle from continuing as it always has.
The view that God was leading them through Samson will become the view that Samson is leading them and God is not needed.
How often we trade in our prayers of thanksgiving to God for celebrations of all that we have done and accomplished.
Be careful in how you view your victories.
