Dealing with the Samsons in our lives
Samson is a 'type' at the heart of what we need watch and comprehend this month:
The function and dysfunction when great gifting is crossed with phenomenal flaws.
We know people like this. Sometimes we ARE people like this.
Some may be our kids or relations. Some are in leadership.
Like Samson they can be,
AND YET birthed, appointed and empowered by God to lead.
God chuckles: His ways ain't ours. He sees what we can't.
Be honest, though: We also see Samson in ourselves. Self-pitying prayers. Rash acts. Vengeful motives.
We can cast no stones – but must learn how to pray for the 'Samsons' we know.
Clearly, things would be so much better and more reasonable and rational, if I was calling the shots…
Okay, maybe not me, but certainly YOU, right? We come back to the necessity of humility: We don't grasp what God does so we must ask, 'How then do I pray?'
Watch the replay, connect the dots. We need this biblical ‘slice’ of God’s perspective. The wild ride ain't over - It's just beginning.
