Renungan harian alkitab; Judges 15, rabu; ” special power to  lead, kuasa khusus untuk memimpin”

​Judges 15:4-5 (NKJV)  Then Samson went and caught three hundred foxes; and he took torches, turned the foxes tail to tail, and put a torch between each pair of tails.

When he had set the torches on fire, he let the foxes go into the standing grain of the Philistines, and burned up both the shocks and the standing grain, as well as the vineyards and olive groves.

Tuhan memberikan karunia khusus bagi Samson untuk dapat memimpin, karena pada saat itu umat Israel sedang dalam penindasan suku Philistine ,  dan Israel tidak punya pasukan yang kuat, maka dikirimnya  karunia ” super hero”  dalam diri Samson.

Judges 15:14-16 (NKJV)  When he came to Lehi, the Philistines came shouting against him. Then the Spirit of the Lord came mightily upon him; and the ropes that were on his arms became like flax that is burned with fire, and his bonds broke loose from his hands.

He found a fresh jawbone of a donkey, reached out his hand and took it, and killed a thousand men with it.

Then Samson said: “With the jawbone of a donkey, Heaps upon heaps, With the jawbone of a donkey I have slain a thousand men!”

Dengan karunia kekuatan fisik super hero, maka Samson memimpin sebagai hakim selama 30 tahun, dan tanpa pasukan mampu melawan penjajah seorang diri;

 Judges 15:20 (NKJV)  And he judged Israel twenty years in the days of the Philistines.

Tentu saja konteks hari ini berbeda karena kita sudah memasuki jaman baru, dimana dunia mempunyai tata tertib ; lembaga perdamaian, united nation organization,( PBB), undang undang kriminalitas ,lembaga hak asasi manusia internasional,  dan tata tertib dunia baru.

Para pembaca terkasih setiap pemimpin yang Tuhan pilih dan utus selalu disertai karunia khusus, sebagai tanda memang ia utusan Tuhan, apalagi di jaman perjanjian baru.

Penyertaan karunia Roh Kudus dan  tanda tanda ajaib , hingga mukjizat,  bahkan menyertai orang beriman, terlebih pemimpin mereka, termasuk buah Roh juga dimunculkan dalam diri pemimpin rohani dan orang beriman.
