INSPIRING DOSE TODAY:
Samson was a man of supernatural strength. Yet even this gift from God did not keep him from seeking to meet his needs his way. And as the result of his wayward living, Samson died a tragic death.
God understands that we have needs, but he wants us to bring those needs to Him. Even the desires we experience are opportunities for God to answer prayer and provide for us in mighty ways.
Unfortunately, sometimes we allow our passions to control us. We overlook the fact that we belong to God, and He has a pathway for us to follow. We strike out on our own only to meet a costly defeat.
Don't wait until the end of your life to enjoy God's goodness. Make a vital decision to allow Him to meet your needs. When He is in control, blessings abound. ~ excerpt from an article written by Charles Stanley
