We all have hangups that make us think we can’t be used.
Samson’s was anger, rage, voilence, lust and sexual immorality.
But God was using all of that to accomplish his plan.
And that drives the theological side of us nuts.
These stories are in the Bible to keep us on our toes. Just when we think we have God all figured out, he throws something like this in there.
Let this be a reminder that God can use anyone at anytime with whatever struggles they have.
Samson’s story isn’t the common way God works in people’s lives. But with every person, he does work with people who have messed things up.
So as you lead, remember this for yourself and for the people you lead. God will use anyone, at anytime, no matter the hangup.
