SAMSONSamson’s Mission

The last sentence in Judges 13:5 tells of Samson’s mission. This was God’s plan for his life: “And he shall …………………”

Notice that it says “begin.” What Samson began, David and others would continue. Remember Goliath was a Philistine. Although Samson had certain weaknesses and failures in his life,  did he really fulfilled this mission and purpose which God had for him. It is interesting that he always met the Philistines by himself. He never gathered an army. God made this man a one-man army!

God’s blessing was on Samson from the very beginning (Judges 13:24) and the Spirit of God made him what he was (Judges 13:25).

Can we say Samson fulfilled destiny?


Prayer is not just a medium for expressing ourselves before God, it is also a means to unveiling and understanding the mind of God concerning specific issues. This is why Jesus, while teaching his disciples on prayer, told them to pray “Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven,” Matt 6:10.

Effective prayers are those that are made based on the knowledge of the will of God. God needs men who would carry out His will; men whose desire will be to get the glimpse of the way things are done in heaven and repeat same here on earth just as Moses got the glimpse of the throne room of God and replicated it on earth. Those who pray according to God’s will are rarely selfish in their prayer life.

Reflect: When we seek God’s kingdom, we can’t pray amiss.
