Why do men sleep? -7
Matthew 13:25 “But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.”
Judges 16:13 “Delilah said to Samson, “Until now you have mocked me and told me lies. Tell me what you may be bound with.” And he said to her, “If you weave the seven locks of my head into the web of the loom””
Three times Delilah asked for the secret of his powers and he told her blatant lies until he eventually told her the truth and he lost his eyes and strength. I’m sure you know the rest of the story but the part that baffles me is this:
Judges 16:6 “So Delilah said to Samson, “Please tell me where your great strength [lies,] and with what you may be bound to afflict you.””
Delilah told him that the only reason she want to know the secret of his power is so that she can afflict him and he consented! Who does that? A person that is fast asleep due to carelessness!
Samson was so careless that each time he tells her the fake secret she tries it out and yet he kept telling her. It doesn’t seem to add up but yet he did it, till he finally lost out.
Well, we might blame Samson all we want but the truth is; several believers are guilty as charged. Many believers go to church, hear beautiful sermons, knows the mind of God concerning issues yet goes ahead and do the very thing God said not to do! I am sure you can relate to that. You heard; not that you didn’t hear but yet you do it all the same.
That was the error of Samson and you are already toeing his path. What are those little things in your life you don’t want to let go off? It could be an illicit affair like that of Samson and Delilah, a character flaw like the anger of Moses, the womanising nature of David or even the talkertive nature of Peter!
Friend, whatever be your own that has caused you to slumber and sleep, it’s time to let go of them before they destroy you.
To be continued…
