When reading the story of Samson in the Bible, you wonder why he took so long to defeat the Philistines. It is only at his death did he did his greatest act. When reading about his life, I get the feeling that Samson wanted to be normal. He wanted to get married and just live his life. But, he had a purpose, he had a gift, his strength. So his desires for himself became stronger and louder than God’s desires for him. Then he fell, on the lap of Delilah, he told his secrets and was caught. But believe me, Samson aligned his desires with his calling and, being filled with the Holy Spirit, killed the Philistines that imprisoned and enslaved his people. Purpose accomplished. There!
We too often just want to be normal, just want to be like everyone else. As if God created us to fit in and look and sound alike. We get busy living our lives and seeking financial freedom, cars, homes and careers so much so that often the purpose for which God has created us remains undone, unfulfilled, dormant. Sleeping giant wake up!
Trust that God’s path for you is greater than your own! ❤🤗
