Judges 15:18-20 Samson was now very thirsty, and he cried out to the Lord, “You have accomplished this great victory by the strength of your servant. Must I now die of thirst and fall into the hands of these pagans?” So God caused water to gush out of a hollow in the ground at Lehi, and Samson was revived as he drank. Then he named that place “The Spring of the One Who Cried Out,”[a] and it is still in Lehi to this day.
Samson judged Israel for twenty years during the period when the Philistines dominated the land.
This week at Recovery@theSalvos we are looking at story of Samson, a man who had everything and lost it all.
A man who was left emotionally and physically drained after his victory over the Philistines and complained to God. It is important for us as we grow in the process of recovery and overcome some of the things that have kept us from being all that we can be to not become discouraged, because it seems to be too hard. We need to learn to rely on the strength and power of God to meet our needs. That is how we can be ready to handle the next battle that recovery brings.
Prayer: Just for today I am going to rely on God’s strength and God’s power as I grow in the process of recovery and prepare to face whatever I need to, to be all that God wants me to be.
