Judges 16:19 “And she made him sleep upon her knees; and she called for a man, and she caused him to shave off the seven locks of his head; and she began to afflict him, and his strength went from him.”
These four guys came from behind to be rulers in a strange land. After their installation as governors et all, Daniel did something very interesting; the bible says, “Daniel sat in the gate of the king.”(Daniel 2:49)
Daniel understood that decisions are made at the “gate” and knew that the “gate” represents the place of power and authority.
He knows that whoever controls the gate, controls the city. He knew that the gate represents the altar that controls a land or region.
Even though he had become a great man by the authority of the king, he never left the place of the gate. This is a great lesson for us today. I have watched many believers burn for the Lord, fast, pray, worship and never miss church when looking for a miracle. I have watched sadly as well, as their fires fizzle out immediately their dreams happen.
The same folks who never misses Bible study and prayer meetings suddenly become too busy for those same spiritual activities that produced their miracles. When you act this way, you have made Delilah’s lap your pillow.
The lap of Delilah is a strange pillow that consumes men. When she was ready to consume Samson she placed him on her laps. Hitherto, she didn’t do that.
As believers you must be sensitive to too much comfort in the place of prayer and the word. Don’t deal with God on the basis of convenience but rather on the basis of His principles. Hear this:
Amos 6:1 “Woe to them that are at ease in Zion, and trust in the mountain of Samaria, which are named chief of the nations, to whom the house of Israel came”
Zion represents the church and your spiritual activities. Thse are the things that makes your spirit man thick.
