In Book Two: Alone, But Not Forsaken,God will not be ignored. He prepares Samson to deliver His people from their bondage. Watch God use one man to show the world His strength.


Dear Reader,
The Book of Judges shows God’s people in peril by their own making. They have forgotten God. And by forgetting bring destruction on themselves, yet they don’t recognize their own peril.
But God does and prepares one to deliver them: Samson.
Even as Samson delivers them, they resent and reject him, bent on doing their own thing. 
Though Samson does not show a stellar example of obedience, God still uses him. What an example of God’s grace! By blessing Samson in spite of his disobedience, God uses him to show to those around him 
God is in their midst
How much are we like them? We forget God and do our own thing. By our own choices, we bring destruction on ourselves, yet do not recognize its damages.
So like Samson, we are. God
wantsto show us the blessings, but we limit what He woulddo by our disobedience. Samson gives us encouragement. That in spite of our constant stumbling and disobedience, God can and does still use us.
But Samson also shows us another side. What blessings would God shower on us, if we would just yield to Himcompletelyand obey Him wholeheartedly? What strength and power would God show to the world by our obedience?
The world would know of our God.

God’s people continue to forget Him.
Their cycle—sin, suffering and salvation—continues through Judges.
They need another deliverer.
God prepares Samson before his birth.
He gives Samson strength to show His people and His enemies
That He will not be ignored.
This strength becomes a stumbling block,
Not only for Samson’s own people who reject him,
But also for Samson’s pride.
His father is the only one who understands how deliverance can come.
His final admonition describes Samson’s life: 
Alone, But Not Forsaken.
Today, God still calls for those who will show His strength 
to His people and His enemies.
Not many understand,
And those who do, stand alone.
But never forsaken.
