I would like to start this week’s email with a question….. If you had to choose would you rather be Samson or Samuel?? “And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gideon , and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets. ” Hebrews 11:32
Samson and Samuel were both very much the same and very different. Both men were judges, anointed of God to lead Israel. Both took the vow of the Nazarite. Both fought the Philistines. Both men are included in Hebrews 11 and in God’s Hall of Fame. Samson, a man of incredible physical strength, was impetuous, carnal, lustful, driven by his appetites. In his hunger for vengeance he plead with God to destroy not only the philistines, but also his own life. By way of contrast, Samuel, a man of incredible spiritual strength, was content to let God fight his battles for him. A man powerful in the word of prayer, he lead Israel back from the worship of dead idols to the living God. Samson’s confidence was in what God had given him; Samuel’s confidence was in what God could do through him.
In the flesh, Samson appears more attractive to many men. Alive, confident, he boldly sought to do great things for God. On the other hand Samuel was more quiet, somewhat reclusive, available as a channel for whatever God wanted to do. Although God called Samson great, those who emulate him have a problem. If God had not placed him in his Hall of fame, Samson’s carnal lifestyle would make you wonder if he was saved. Thus, he who follows Samson’s example must wait until the judgment for affirmation; those who know and love him cannot affirm his carnality. You have a better model in Samuel.
We are so in awe with God. All permits and contracts are signed and construction started today. I’m going to just keep allowing God to show how miraculous he is in all our lives. God is always right on time. I would like to say thank you for all your prayers, love , and support that is given. May many blessings be poured out like a river upon your lives. God bless.
