About the Book

Many people think of Samson as a brawny, muscular, large, man. But if this were so, why did the Philistines, Samson’s enemies, or Delilah, the person closest to him, or anyone else that saw him, not realize the source of his strength? Could Samson have been a regular sized, or a thin or even a scrawny man that God used to show His power and strength? The biblical account says nothing about his physical appearance, except for his long hair. It is very possible that Samson was physically normal or even scrawny in appearance, since there are many examples in scripture about how God used weakness to show His power and strength. See in this work what others have said about Samson being scrawny and how faith plays a big part in what can be done. See how God used normal people to do big things, and what He says about how the power of the Holy Spirit can make us strong to “move mountains”. Also in this work is shown what God says about fighting for faith, its methods, benefits and rewards. We live in a physical world, but physical appearance is not always the sign of what can be done. Faith in God is what makes you strong. In the back of the book, I took the opportunity to include some photos of some of my architecture and building projects I was involved in over the years that God has used me to positively influence others. Also included are photos of family and friends whom God has used to positively influence me.
