The children of Israel had 31 years of peace under various judges but after the death of Hillel, they did evil in the sight of the LORD and He delivered them into the hand of the Philistines for 40 years. This time the Lord wanted to do a new thing. God wanted to give Israel a man who alone would face the dreaded Philistines in the power of the Holy Spirit. The Angel of the LORD was sent to the wife of a man called Manoah, of the family of the tribe of Dan. This woman was barren. The Angel said that she would conceive and give birth to a son. The child was called Samson (sunlike). Some great people in the Bible were born by previously barren women. In God there is always hope. Put your hope in God if you are barren either physically or spiritually. God is able to make you fruitful. Look: Rebecca, the mother of the all the tribes of Israel was a barren woman. Elizabeth the mother of John the Baptist was also barren. The reason God chose these barren women was to raise your level of faith to believe in God who alone makes impossible possible. Regardless of your barrenness God can do a new thing through you to bless you and the world around you. Trust Him and remain blessed.
