What is the purpose of the gifts God has given you? Read 1Peter 4:10-11.
As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.
God gave Samson the gift of great physical strength. Instead of using it to rally his people and overcome the enemy, Samson used it for his own pleasure. During Samson’s 20 years as judge, Israel had no rest from Philistine rule (Jdg 15:20).
If you were absolutely certain of success, how would you serve the Lord? Do you hesitate because of doubt or fear? When you do, it’s a sign you are leaning on yourself too much.
The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.
