Scripture

Judges 15

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What happened when Samson went to visit his wife? How did the Philistines retaliate? How did God intervene when they came to kill Samson?

Application

Do I take my own revenge? Do I consider escalation and collateral damage to others before I act?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Dear Father in heaven, Thank you for using and working through Samson, even though he consistently made bad decisions. Help me to seek you and carefully consider what Your word has to say before acting, and so avoid much heartache and distress for myself and others. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.

Pray to BLESS!

One good way to pray for people is to use the acronym BLESS to pray for God’s blessing on every area of their lives:

  • B – BODY (physical health)
  • L – Labor (their job or school)
  • E – Emotions (emotional health as well as guarding against letting emotions rule)
  • S – Social (relationships with family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, church, etc)
  • S – Spiritual (remaining true to God and growing in Him)
