"Again the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the LORD, so the LORD delivered them into the hands of the Philistines for forty years. (Judges 13:1)

If you can't be a good example, then you'll just have to serve as a horrible warning. The cycle of sin, bondage, repentance, deliverance, blessing, and sin again continued in the history of Israel. Into these times was born the next judge of Israel, Samson.

In this sense Samson was truly a man from his times.

He was a study in contrasts, a man of great strengths and great weaknesses.

In this, he was a picture of Israel's history - of great highs and lows.

Samson is also an important example of unfulfilled potential. Though he did great things for God, it is staggering to consider what he might have done and been for God. Because of Israel's sin and rebellion, God again gained their attention by bring them into subjugation to the Philistines.

I pray that God will correct every error in your life today and make your end to be glorious than your beginning in Jesus name.
