Manoah’s wife gave birth to a son and named him Samson. The child grew and the Lord empowered him. After all of the drama and dust settled, God did exactly what he said he would do for the couple. The once-childless woman gave birth to a son (just as the Lord said). Through the Lord’s empowerment, her son would save Israel from their enemy (just as the Lord said). God was faithful to his word in the past, and he will be faithful to his word in the future. We can all relate to Manoah’s wife on some level. Like her we live in an increasingly anti-God culture; however, it can serve as an ideal setting to hear God speak. We can position ourselves to hear God by staying in his Word and prayer. When we do this, our voice will bring peace and reassurance in any stressful or fearful situation. Make no mistake, a calm voice carries significant weight—especially in marriages—so let’s use it wisely. Listen to God, then faithfully and confidently use your voice to encourage and strengthen one another.
