What Samson’s Riddle Doesn’t Teach

“Out of the eater something to eat, and out of the strong something sweet” (Judges 14:14).

Recently, I wrote a devotional on this verse to show that from the life of Samson, God is teaching us that He can work wonders even through the bad things in our lives and even overrule our own stumbling for good. The riddle was also a clear declaration of Samson’s life for his people and the plan of God.


Walking By Faith

“. . . for we walk by faith, not by sight (2 Cor 5:7 NASU).

The Parable of the Resistance Fighter is a powerful illustration of walking by faith. “In time of war in an occupied country, a member of the resistance meets one night a stranger who deeply impressed him. They spend the night together in conversation. The stranger tells the partisan that he himself is on the side of the resistance – indeed that he is in command of the resistance, and urges the partisan to have faith in him no matter what happens.


What’s Really Important?

Ponder Haggai 1:1-15
Today’s Bible Verse: “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you” (Matt 6:33 NASU).
In the closing days of Old Testament history, Haggai, the prophet of God, arose to challenge the people of God to renew their vigor and strength to complete the rebuilding of the temple of God that had been suspended after the reign of Cyrus.
