“Then she said to him, “How can you say, I love you,’ when you won’t confide in me? This is the third time you have made a fool of me and haven’t told me the secret of your great strength”. With such nagging, she prodded him day after day until he was tired to death. So he told her everything.” Judges 16:15 – 17
Samson was blessed of the Lord and the Spirit of God was upon him; he was a great man. God had chosen him to deliver the Israelites from the control of the Philistines. What a great vision Samson had for his life. However, in a moment of weakness, he gave into Delilah’s request, and the first thing the Philistines did after seizing him was to gorge out his eyes…bringing his great vision to No vision.
Each one of us has been given a great vision by God for our lives. However, in moments of weakness, the enemy steals that vision leaving one visionless, in a state where one stumbles through life…uncertain of their goings and their comings. It is a deep well of discontentment.
…But, the hair of Samson grew again; and at a time when his enemies were using his downfall as entertainment…Samson cried to God ‘Oh Sovereign Lord, Remember me’. And God heard his cry enabling him to fall back in His God given destiny … ‘he killed many more philistines when he died than when he lived’.
When we are in a state of ‘no vision’, there is hope when we call upon God. The Lord enables us to envision once again, shake off the enemy’s shackles from our lives; and move forward to live a God destined life.
