he read her little notes of learning, and he read the word of God to her.
One day as he was reading the Word, the Word grabbed his heart and he started crying, and he decided he would serve
Jesus the rest of his life. In her blindness, he received his sight. What was terrible to the old lady became an answer to
her prayer life? All of this because the Word of God is powerful and quicker than any two-edged sword.
Psalms 107:20 He sent His Word, and healed them and delivered them from their destructions.
There are many benefits to reading, studying, and knowing the Word of God.
If you want to mess up your life and your family and have a weak anemic church, donít read your Bible!
Healing can be hidden within the Word of God! Deliverance from destruction can be found in the power of Godís book!
Notice the verse, it says: destructions ... plural, many, every battle and failure can be traced back to a lacking of understanding and knowledge and wisdom of the Bible.
Have you ever heard a sermon where the newspapers, magazines, and quotes of TV preachersí become the text?
Have you ever heard someone preach a sermon that came in the mail?
II. HOW CAN I MAKE A MESS OF MY LIFE? AVOID SELF DISCIPLINE AT ALL COST! LET YOUR EYES AND HEART
DICTATE TO YOUR SPIRIT MAN. THERE IS A PATH THAT LEADS DOWNWARD? LET US PRETEND THAT THE
WORLD TRADE CENTERS STILL REACHED THE SKYLINE OF NEW YORK CITY?
COULD YOU PLACE A SECURE TIGHT ROPE ACROSS FROM ONE TOWER TO THE OTHER AND WALK

But real intelligence might be in not trying?
Judges 14:1 And Samson WENT DOWN To Timnath, AND SAW A WOMAN of the daughters of the Philistines.
Samson would not listen to his Mom and Dadís teachings? Samson would not follow the teachings of the church in his day? Samson could not see the importance of little things. Samson felt that the rules of proper procedures was too restrictive
Never date who would not make a great mate! A poor dating process initializes a poor marriage? Because of poor choices, we can really mess up our life and many others. There will come a testing. We must see beyond our eyes.
Judges 14:2 And Samson came up and told his Father and his Mother --- NOW GET HER FOR ME! NOW!
3. Samson is warned, yet HE WANTS HIS CHOICE HIS WAY! Samson, you are getting ready to mess up!
Samsonís Dad asked isnít there a woman from within the plan of God, the circumcised covenant people of God...?
Samson makes a demand... GET HER FOR ME, FOR SHE PLEASES ME WELL!
Samson had several powerful opportunities to correct his poor choices and correct the problems he had grown.
But Samson learned to BLAME OTHERS and he learned how to pass the buck AND IGNORE THE FACTS THAT
CHOICES CAN COST DEARLY!
One day soon, Samson is going to wake up a prisoner in the enemyís camp and the power of God is gone. Samson
had made poor choices and he will pay a dear price. What could have been, if Samson had not messed up his life?
Samson saw more when he was blind than when he could see! Why mess up in a lack of vision?
We donít like the words of duty, responsibility, discipline, accountability. Good discipline is not just punishment,
