March 29 – Judges 16:23-27


March 29 – Judges 16:23-27

23 Now the lords of the Philistines gathered to offer a great sacrifice to Dagon their god and to rejoice, and they said, “Our god has given Samson our enemy into our hand.” 24 And when the people saw him, they praised their god. For they said, “Our god has given our enemy into our hand, the ravager of our country, who has killed many of us.” 25 And when their hearts were merry, they said, “Call Samson, that he may entertain us.” So they called Samson out of the prison, and he entertained them. They made him stand between the pillars. 26 And Samson said to the young man who held him by the hand, “Let me feel the pillars on which the house rests, that I may lean against them.” 27 Now the house was full of men and women. All the lords of the Philistines were there, and on the roof there were about 3,000 men and women, who looked on while Samson entertained.

These verses are so reminiscent of how the Jewish leaders felt after the crucifixion.  They thought they had won, but were soon to find out how wrong they were. 

How often does the situation look totally different than it truly is?

God knows what is ahead for you and is the only one you can truly trust for guidance.

Why do you think we find it so difficult to truly trust in Him when we know He is trustworthy and knows all?

Heavenly Father, You were there on that Friday so many years ago and knew what was about to take place.  It was all part of Your plan to allow us a chance for a relationship with You.  Today You are right here and asking for us to listen to You to guide us in the right path.  Thank You for caring so much for each of us that You still pursue us with such passion.  Thank You for showing Your love that horrible Friday that is now known of as “Good Friday”.  Thank You for not giving up on me.

In Jesus’ name.
