*Scripture Treasure.*

Judges 14:5-6 *Then went Samson down, and his father and his mother, to Timnath, and came to the vineyards of Timnath: and, behold, a young lion roared against him.*

*And the Spirit of the Lord came mightily upon him, and he rent him as he would have rent a kid, and he had nothing in his hand: but he told not his father or his mother what he had done.*

*Insight and Highlight.*

When God does not carry a person, he/she becomes vulnerable to Satan's effortless trap.

Samson killed a fierceful lion, but a fearless woman 'killed' him.

*Scripture Commentaries.*

The Spirit of God was heavy on Samson. When the Spirit carried, moved, or was upon him, he was valiant and unstoppable.

When God carries us, there is nothing beyond our abilities.

The world's most ferocious animal was killed by Samson, yet he was nailed by a defenseless woman.

Hunters kill lions with spears, guns, or any instrument of defense. Samson killed the lion when *"......he had nothing in his hand:..."*

The Spirit of the Lord worked in Samson, and he did sporadic exploits without any arms or weapons of war.

The Spirit worked on Samson even when He was not called or petitioned by Samson.

Lust, disobedience, and lack of self-control all play their part in Samson's fall into enemies' hands.

The Philistines rejoiced in their god.

Before anyone attributes victory or deliverance to any god, Paul says

in 1 Cor 8:4 saying, *"....those things that are offered in sacrifice unto idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one."*

It is therefore not surprising but foolish how someone would wish to carry his god to safety in the midst of trouble when his god should be carrying him to safety.

In the midst of the Philistines' dreadful fear of Samson, their god, Dagon, could not confront Samson. They had to do everything for Dagon. The Philistines had to carry it to a place in Gaza. They praised Dagon, ascribing deliverance to it. Dagon further became helpless and ineffective when Samson destroyed it and killed more Philistines in his death than in life.

God proved to the Philistines and Dagon that a god who could not save them from Samson could not save any of them at Samson's death, Judges 16.

However, in 1 Sam 4:22- 7, God carried

the Israelites from Dagon to safety, smiting Dagon and the Philistines with emerods and delivering the Ark of God back to His people. God troubled them for seven months,1 Sam 6:1.

Delilah succeeded over Samsom, not because the Spirit of God was not enough for Samson but because of his lack of self-control.

No power of darkness should overcome us, and no power of idol should overcome us, Luke 10:19.

God survives ravaging fires, Dan 3:25. Idols are consumed in fires if they are not carried away to safety by their worshippers.

God carries us to safety. Idols do not!

God is never tired of carrying us. He carries us to old age.

Isaiah 46:4 *And even to your old age I am he; and even to hoar hairs will I carry you: I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you.*

*Remorse corner.*

Soak yourself in the word of God, or you will fall into the arm of flesh.

*Call to Word action.*

Idols are nothing in this world.

*Those who make them will be like them, and so will all who trust in them.* (Psalm 115: 4-8)

*The Christian clarion.*

Only God can carry us to safety

Ps115:9 *O Israel, trust thou in the LORD: he is their help and their shield.*


Lord, carry me O LORD, in Jesus name.

Good morning, all, and be blessed as you come into His presence today.

God bless you.
