MESSAGE:

In his book, “Talent is never Enough,” John C. Maxwell writes, “Having talent without focus is like being an octopus on roller skates. You can be sure that there will be plenty of movement, but you won’t know in what direction it will be. Focus can bring tremendous power. With it, you find that your talent and abilities gain direction and intentionality. And these qualities pay off by producing results.”

Our text tells of Samson’s trip to the Philistine city of Timnath to seek a wife. Despite the parents’ protest as to the propriety of his action, he insisted because the woman “pleaseth [him] well.” His great power came into display when on the way he tore a lion that roared at him with bare hands. A marriage was eventually contracted on his second visit, which marked the starting of his life’s journey.

A Chinese proverb says, “the journey of a thousand miles starts with one step.” The journey of Samson to Timnath marked the beginning of a God ordained ministry which ended in tragedy. His lack of temperance; his lustful disposition and incoherent decisions truncated the wonderful ministry God gave him. As one looks at the life and times of Samson, the great power given to him; expectations from both God and Israel and his dismal end, one cannot but feel disappointed at the colossal wastage of divine resources.

To receive talents is one thing, but to effectively use them is another. Solomon, who though was endowed with great wisdom and wealth beyond every other king, eventually went into idolatry with his numerous strange wives. Christ has called us and given us different talents. We must be careful not to waste them so as not to incur God’s wrath on that final day like the unprofitable servant in Christ’s parable (Matthew 25:14-30).

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Use your talents for God’s glory.

COVER TO COVER: NEHEMIAH 1-4.

MEDITATION

Permissive will

1. It was not God’s perfect will for Samson to marry a gentile, Romans 12:2. Various Old Testament passages clearly forbid this. (Mention 2 of them).

2. There was a parental check which Samson ignored v3.

Q. Are there things you are bent on doing even though there is a check from the scriptures, your spirit or spiritual parents? Beware.

3. Samson’s decision, though a covenant person, was based only on sight without any moral or spiritual consideration vv3,7.

Q. Do you subject your decisions to the scriptures and spiritual counselling or just what your eyes are seeing or your mind is thinking as good? Beware.

4. God many a times move along with someone operating on permissive will so as to minimise the damage. In this case, he was still experiencing power of the Holy Spirit even though his will and ways are not perfect before God v6.

5. Permissive will is deceptive because it may not necessarily immediately stop God’s dealing with the person, but the end is always regrets and bitterness. Ask Samson.

Q. Think of other examples of permissive will in the Bible and how they ended.

6. Samson’s unconquered territory was his secret lust for opposite sex and it eventually conquered and destroyed him.

Q. What are the unconquered territories in your nature? What are you doing to conquer them before they turn out to be “pet lions”?

HYMN

Just Obey

Verse 1
Just as God who reigns on High
Spake to men in days gone by,
So the Lord is calling men today;
And, my brother this is true,
Whatso-e’er He says to you
There is but one thing to do, just obey

Chorus
Just obey, just obey,
Is the way, God’s way;
When His message comes to you,
There is but one thing to do,
Just obey, just obey

Verse 2
If you’re in the Saviour’s hands,
You must do as He commands,
For there is no other gospel way;
Never put the message by,
Never stop to reason why,
When the Saviour speaks to you, just obey

Chorus
Just obey, just obey,
Is the way, God’s way;
When His message comes to you,
There is but one thing to do,
Just obey, just obey

Verse 3
If for mansions fair you sigh
In that land beyond the sky
After time with you has pass’d away;
Tho’ the way you may not see,
Christ is calling ”Follow Me”
Faith and duty both will cry just obey

Chorus
Just obey, just obey,
Is the way, God’s way;
When His message comes to you,
There is but one thing to do,
Just obey, just obey
