It's Day 56 and we're in Judges 16.
Where God Spoke To Me:
Verse 30 - A bittersweet moment - Samson died in victory, but he also
died blind. God may forgive the guilt of our sin, but that doesn't mean
the consequences of our sin are undone.
Verses 6-14 - Let's talk about the believability of these verses. It
seems crazy that Samson keeps getting attacked yet keeps sharing (or
pretending to share) his secret. Factors to consider: (a) she does warn
him so he sees her as sympathetic; (b) he was often attacked generally
and had a lot of enemies; (c) he was not real bright; (d) I'm sure part
of it was the sexual temptation she represented for him.
- Verse 20 - The issue was not really the hair, but rather the obedience to God's command.
- Verse 30 - The number listed in verse 27 was only those on the roof. This was like bringing down a stadium.
