God's Word For Today

Daily Devotional

Spirit Empowerment

Read Judges 14:1 through 17:13

In Samson’s day, Israel frequently violated God’s Laws. Samson allowed lust to rule his actions. However, God chose Samson to begin the deliverance of Israel from the Philistines. Despite Samson’s weaknesses, God empowered him to perform incredible feats of strength and to fight and win battles against incredible odds.


The Spirit of the Lord came powerfully upon him, and he ripped the lion’s jaws apart with his bare hands. He did it as easily as if it were a young goat (Judges 14:6).


The Spirit of God empowers Christians today to do incredible things too. God is able to empower His people to stand strong when Satan threatens like a roaring lion. God still brings good out of bad situations. 


If you are facing a trial, call out to God, seek His counsel, and then follow His instructions. If you are living in obedience, you can trust Him to provide the strength you need when you need it. This is God’s grace in action.


Prayer Suggestion: Dear Lord, fill me with Your Spirit so that I may live a life of victory.
