The woman gave birth to a boy and named him Samson. He grew and the Lord

blessed him, and the Spirit of the Lord began to stir him while he was in Mahaneh

Dan, between Zorah and Eshtaol. (Judges 13:24)

This was how God began preparing Samson to become a judge of Israel.

Samson went down to Timnah and saw there a young Philistine woman. When he

returned, he said to his father and mother, "I have seen a Philistine woman in Timnah;

now get her for me as my wife." His father and mother replied, "Isn't there an acceptable

woman among your relatives or among all our people? Must you go to the uncircumcised

Philistines to get a wife?" But Samson said to his father, "Get her for me. She's the right

one for me." (His parents did not know that this was from the LORD, who was seeking an

occasion to confront the Philistines; for at that time they were ruling over Israel.)

Samson went down to Timnah together with his father and mother. As they approached

the vineyards of Timnah, suddenly a young lion came roaring toward him. The Spirit of

the LORD came upon him in power so that he tore the lion apart with his bare hands as

he might have torn a young goat. But he told neither his father nor his mother what he

had done. (Judges 14:1-6)

Of course, we don’t do such things now to demonstrate the power of the Holy Spirit, but

power from on high is available for every believer who will step out with faith according

to the leading of the Spirit.

In the New Testament, we read of Peter and John, 2 of Jesus’ disciples venturing into the

faith realm and witnessing a great miracle.

One day Peter and John were going up to the temple at the time of prayer - at three in

the afternoon. Now a man crippled from birth was being carried to the temple gate called

Beautiful, where he was put every day to beg from those going into the temple courts.

When he saw Peter and John about to enter, he asked them for money. Peter looked

straight at him, as did John. Then Peter said, "Look at us!" So the man gave them his

attention, expecting to get something from them. Then Peter said, "Silver or gold I do not

have, but what I have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk." Taking

him by the right hand, he helped him up, and instantly the man's feet and ankles became

strong. He jumped to his feet and began to walk. Then he went with them into the

temple courts, walking and jumping, and praising God. (Acts 3:1-8)

Has the Holy Spirit been stirring you recently to take a new decision, to step out into the

ministry or to take up a new challenge in your ministry?

Often it is through the “still small voice” that God speaks to us. And some of us tend to

ignore it because it may not be too comfortable a thing. Well, usually God doesn’t force

things upon us, but what He chooses for us is the best. It may appear difficult for us at the

onset, but on the long run we will experience the presence of God in a mighty way,

because we have been obedient to Him.
