Samson’s parents wanted a child so bad. The prayed and tried all different manner of ways to get God’s attention. What’s amazing is that even in their weird attempts to reach out to God, he still answered. An angel of the Lord appears to them a few times to talk about the child they will have and what’s even crazier is they don’t recognize it. They were so influenced and distracted by the religions and cultures around them that an angel of God shows up and their mixed up theology has so many different deities in it they weren’t sure who it was before them. They even asked the name so they could “pay honor” to whoever this was before them.
God is working in your life. Scripture tells us that if we’re one of his followers then he will have purpose and he will be at work. The real question is, if God shows up to do something miraculous in your life would you be able to see it? Would you know what God wanted for you? Would you be able to recognize his voice?
God is at work. Are you too distracted with other voices to hear him?
