Today's reading: Judges 16:23-31
The Philistine royalty brought Samson out to "entertain" them at a feast where they were celebrating Samson's capture and defeat. They praised their god (little "g"), Dagon, for giving Samson into their hands. But God (big "G") was in control and had different plans for the evening. In response to his prayer, God once again empowers a now humbled and blind Samson, who literally brings down the house on the Philistine lords and guests, killing "more than those whom he had killed during his life" (vs. 30).
What does this passage show about God's power, control and plan? What does it reveal about how God can and does use and work through us in all circumstances? Tami
