Hang in There!
Believe It or Not...God Has A Plan, For Us, From Our Birth
This week, we looked at the story of Samson in the book of Judges and how, from birth, God had a plan for his life (to deliver the Israelites after years of captivity). We also learned that Samson slayed 1000 men with a donkey jawbone. Say what?!?! (This will make sense if you were there). :)
Take Away: Even if you feel rather ordinary, you are not because God has a special call on your life. God wants to use you for something that is FAR GREATER than yourself, and He has given you all the strength you will need to accomplish His purposes (just like he did Samson).
How can you learn to use your strengths for God's glory?
