Judges 16:22 “But his hair, though cut off, began to grow again.”(MSG)
The story of Samson was one I learnt as a small boy and I don’t seem to like the way it ended but one thing that struck me in his story recently was ricochet! He was born a Nazarite, no blade must touch his hair which symbolizes God’s Spirit and power upon his life. I’m sure we still remembered how he lost his power through his carelessness with Delilah and how he was humiliated.
Yes, he fell flat, having a major setback. Notice that he didn’t just lose his power, he lost his vision as well. But the good news was, his story didn’t end that way. There was a great ricochet. The bible says, “…though his hair was cut off, it began to grow again!” Talking about total restoration of all that he lost.
Beloved, I want to let you know that whatever hair you might have lost, will grow again! Yes, it might take time but it will sure grow back in Jesus name. The mercy of God will prevail over judgement. Don’t lose heart, your story cannot end in defeat.
I know you might be wondering why Samson’s story ended that way. Here is the reason:
Judges 16:30 “Saying, “Let me die with the Philistines,” Samson pushed hard with all his might. The building crashed on the tyrants and all the people in it. He killed more people in his death than he had killed in his life.”
Samson defined how his own story should end, he saw a partially wrong image and spoke it out. When he had a setback, he meditated, saw a vision of his hair growing again and then killing the host of Philistines but he also saw himself dying with them. Unfortunately he verbalised his vision and it happened that way.
Friend, you can always bounce back but beware of the mental pictures you create and of course what you say. God is the bounce back master and He will sure help you. Your hair is growing back again, your strength is returning, you’re sure coming back stronger!
