Day 6: Where are you placing your trust?
Today we are observing the life of Samson. Samson was born to do great things. He was given a trait and talent that had him invincible. But Samson got bitter, one day trying to hold on to the life he could of had and falling into temptation towards a life less than God planned for him. Samson fell in love with Delilah.
“Tell me the secret of your great strength and how you can be tied up and subdued.” Judges 16:6
Delilah day after day vexed Samson until he couldn’t take it anymore and he eventually told her the secret to his supernatural strength. inevitably Samson was subdued, his eyes ripped out and he was made into a slave.
I want you to reflect on the people in your life. On the people closest to you.
They say that you are the result of the 5 people you spend the most time with.
Samson’s story is a lesson in trust, instead of placing our trust, and our deepest strengths and weaknesses on those closets to us, or for that matter the wrong people, why not place them in God’s hands?
