Today’s reading: Judges 16:3
God can use ungodly men
We read in Judges 16:3:
And Samson lay low till midnight; then he arose at midnight, took hold of the doors of the gate of the city and the two gateposts, pulled them up, bar and all, put them on his shoulders, and carried them to the top of the hill that faces Hebron.
We read in the life of Samson how God repeatedly used Samson to fulfill God’s purpose and plan. It’s quite astonishing to see how Samson can still perform supernatural feats when he continually and repeatedly commits sin.
Today, this is also true. Sometimes, there are people who meant harm to us, but God turned it into good. There are also situations that were meant to destroy us, but God stepped in to use them to build us.
What’s my main point here?
God can still use sinful men.
Now, this does not mean that God used Samson because he was a sinful man. Rather, God used Samson in spite of being sinful.
In short, God is bigger than Samson and his sins. God’s plan is bigger than the sins we ever commit. God is bigger than He can even use bad situations to fulfill His purpose.
