THE MYSTERY OF SAMSON

Do you remember the story of how Samson lost his strength?

Judges 16:17 . . . he told her all his heart, and said unto her, There hath not come a razor upon mine head; for I have been a Nazarite unto God from my mother’s womb: if I be shaven, then my strength will go from me, and I shall become weak, and be like any other man.

Samson is somewhat of a mystery. He was feared by his enemies and revered by his own people. Yet, Samson had a problem that destroyed his life. On more than one occasion, he found himself in deep water because of his undisciplined moral life. That’s why he gave away the secret of his strength to a woman who betrayed him. God was able to use Samson to win some great battles over the Philistines. For that he is a hero. But one can only imagine what God might’ve done through him if Samson had been totally committed to God. What Samson might have accomplished was limited by his unwillingness to walk in obedience.

What about you? What might God do through you if you’re willing to obey Him? Learn more about the life of Samson by reading Judges chapters 13 through 16. Discover how God uses people who live obediently to Him. You’ll read all about it in the Bible.
