The Philistines felt nothing but hatred in their hearts toward Samson. They were ready to destroy him. Samson stood bound by cords, without a way to defend himself. As the Philistines shouted, taunted and verbally tormented Samson the Spirit of The Lord descended upon him. The cords were loosened. A weapon to defeat the Philistines was provided:
The jawbone of an ass.
Samson needed water. Single handily, he had just destroyed a thousand Philistine men. He was weakened and thirsty. Samson couldn’t find anything to drink from. Then The Lord provided water for him.
In the jawbone of an ass.
The jawbone was the only tool that Samson could have used to defeat the enemy. It was also the instrument that was a available to sustain his life. The jawbone had dual purposes.
The Word. It has dual purpose in our walk with Christ. The Lord has provided it to be used as a weapon to defeat our enemy. He has also given it to us to use as a source to draw life from.
Samson used what The Lord provided him with. You do the same. Use The Word to fight your battles and to lead you down paths of righteousness.
