Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“Born With A Plan”
Text: Judges 13:7
“And He said to me, ‘Behold, you shall conceive and bear a son. Now drink no wine or similar drink, nor eat anything unclean, for the child shall be a Nazirite to God from the womb to the day of his death.’ ”
“Born With A Plan” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
Samson was Born With A Plan to serve God as a Nazarite and Serve Israel as a Judge and Deliverer from the Philistines.
God’s Plan required Samson’s participation. When he walked as a Nazarite surrendered to God, God did spectacular works of strength. When he walked surrendered to his flesh, he was alone with his weakness as a common man.
He was a picture of Mankind; He had Great Strength With God and had Great Weakness without God.
God had a Plan for Samson, yet sadly, Samson never discovered the incredible Potential of God’s Plan for his life because he refused to do “his part” of walking with God as a Nazarite, surrendered to God. He did “begin” to deliver Israel from the Philistine bondage (v.6), but he did not finish this deliverance.
Listen up Warrior! You were Born With A Plan! A Perfect Plan of Good Works that God has “ordained” for you to walk in, with Him.
“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.”(Eph.2:10).
God didn’t tell Manoah and his wife every detail of His Plan for Samson; it was up to Samson to “discover” God’s Plan as he walked with God as a Nazarite.
God doesn’t tell us all the details of His Plan of Good Works for our life either. He leaves the “details” for you and I to “discover” as we walk with Him with our Surrendered Heart as His Warrior! Oooooh Rah!
This is what makes our Walk With God a thrilling Adventure; the Ultimate Adventure of mankind: Walking With Yahweh and being changed into His likeness by our surrendered heart!
“But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.” (2Corin.3:18).
Consider all that you have “discovered” in God’s Plan for your life so far. God’s past work in your life is a promise of His future care and blessing for you.
Enjoy your Walk With God, through all the good, the bad, and the ugly of life; knowing that “it’s all part of the Plan,” and God is With You as You are with Him!
“But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.” (1John 1:7). Oooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
Jesus and Billy
