But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, Philippians 3:20 ESV
Something may be right in our own eyes but if its not right in God’s eyes, walk away! God does not violate His own laws so it was from Him in the sense He knew that this would turn favorable against the Philistines and allowed this marriage in Samson’s life. This is the same tactics terrorists use today by terrorizing families with evil threats that they really do act upon. Thank You Lord that greater are You in me than any terroristic spirit of this world!
Ramath-lehi the hill of the jawbone.
En-hakkore means the spring of him who called. I think of the living water flowing from the throne of God.
Hezekiah glorified God at this time with offering and praise. I say this time for what is to come.
I have to be wise about business and the business dealings of the world because though I am not of this world I certainly live in it. There is no in-between for truth and deceit as it is only one or the other. It is the same with faithfulness in that being faithful in little leads to being faithful in much. The truth is also that in order to be entrusted with things from God a person first has to prove trust to another. If money is god, God is not. The Law is not void. Lord Yeshua is the fulfillment of it. People that have been married and divorced need to seriously repent as it is sinful in the eyes of the Lord. There are exceptions with the first being unfaithfulness by one’s spouse. The second one though not written, is for physical abuse. It is written but not specifically as it is written about divorce. What do I mean? Husbands are to love their wives and wives are to respect their husbands. Where does abuse fall in with a scripture like this? It is sad when people don’t repent of their sin and give their lives to our Lord though He has risen from the dead and paid our sin price at the Cross!
Meditate & Apply: I don’t need to be in fear of the things in this world though I must be wise and not naïve about them. One deceitful thing nullifies the honesty of a person. Faithfulness and unfaithfulness are the same. God hates divorce so it is important to be 100% in God’s will in order to marry. Seriously!
I want to drink of the living water flowing from the throne of God. Gulp, gulp,...
Right there with you!
It is important to be aware of what is happening around us and actually be involved. The less involved doesn't remove us from experiencing what happens around us, but the more invested, the more aware. It's not good to live in our heads and expect things to work out the way we think. Being involved and invested makes us more sensitive to the Holy Spirit and what's happening around us. Hmmmm.
