Judges 16:20 “And she said The Philistines be upon thee, Samson. And he awoke out of his sleep, and said I will go out as at other times before, and shake myself. And he wist not that the LORD was departed from him.”

…From yesterday…

Samson had become so familiar with the hair on his head that he didn’t know he was now shaven!

I’m sure you’ve had similar experiences before when you just cut your hair or make them as a lady and the following morning you completely forgot only for you to enter the bathroom and discover you made your hair when you stared at the mirror. It was then you realized you’re wearing a new look.

Samson woke up that morning not realizing that a demonic transaction had occurred in his life while he slept. Worst still he didn’t even check his hair, he just rushed out of the house to confront the enemies.

Friend, this is the point at which we all have to be sensitive and careful in spiritual matters. A major challenge Samson had was that he became very familiar with the anointing of God upon his life.

It is the sin and spirit of familiarity that has made many believers become cheap prey in the hands of the devil. It is this horrible spirit that makes a believer become too busy or too much in a hurry that he rushes out in the morning without a word of prayer.

It is this spirit that seduces a man away from regular church activities and spiritual gatherings that energizes and enriches his soul and spirit man.

We might blame Samson all we want but some believers are worse off. Many are living dangerously on the edge of destruction without even knowing. I’ve seen people that stopped serving in a unit in church because they felt they have served long and it’s now time to leave it to the younger ones!

I’ve seen believers who got promoted at work and suddenly can’t attend activities again because they are now busier and the work has become more demanding.

To be continued…
