“the ropes around his arms. . . melted”

– Judges 15:14


Like the powerful Samson, we often find ourselves in positions where we are overwhelmed- bound and restrained by life’s demands and every way we turn we are halted or obstructed. We are limited by the knots, sometimes endless snarls of complications, in our lives. Samson was given the power by God and through the Spirit to burst any bond or rope that was put upon him. Samson’s power and gifts were matchless throughout history.

However, we are not without resources and gifts. The power of God is always stronger than the tangles of life.

It does not matter the size or gravity of the knots, for as the prayer says-

“in your hands there is no knot which can not be undone”

I am a lifelong Christian, who devoted himself to the study of the Word of God at a young age. I have attained a BA, 3 Masters, and a Doctorate degree in the field of Biblical Studies. I am also a published writer, with a specialty on the Judge, Samson. I am honored to be part of this vibrant and growing ministry and hope to share the powerful encouragement which, over the years of study, I have found in the Bible. Blessings to all!
