Love Series: Trusting Delilah

the_bible_collection_samson_and_dalilah_en_01I started to blog about Samson earlier, but changed my mind until someone shared a dream they had and in the dream the man had long curly hair. It was then that I knew that I was on point writing about Samson. I knew God was saying that someone was like Samson.

The problem with Samson was that he opened his heart to the wrong women. Oh, Delilah seemed like the right woman, but she was not. Little did Samson know that she was sharing his secrets behind his back and was a PERPETUAL LIAR. Sometimes I wonder what happened to Samson that he trusted Delilah even after he began to see the truth about her. It’s really quite sad because it was to his detriment.

As I was thinking about Samson, I realize that his SUCCESS blinded him. So Samson thought God was still with him. But one of the saddest verses in the Bible is the one that stated that God left Samson and he didn’t even know it. You see Samson was laden down with sin, so his discernment was OFF. I’m not saying he didn’t love God in his own way, but he was no longer living and maintaining his NAZARITE vow, which was to ABSTAIN from certain things. The truth is it was Samson’s indulgence in SIN that caused him to be deceived and he ended up DEAD.

Someone is talking to the wrong woman. Yes, she seems like the RIGHT one, but she is starting to share your SECRETS. God says shut the door completely on Delilah NOW or you will live to regret it because DELILAH IS A PERPETUAL LIAR.

Judges 16:15

New International Version (NIV)

15 Then she said to him, “How can you say, ‘I love you,’ when you won’t confide in me? This is the third time you have made a fool of me and haven’t told me the secret of your great strength.”

Judges 16:30

New International Version (NIV)

30 Samson said, “Let me die with the Philistines!” Then he pushed with all his might, and down came the temple on the rulers and all the people in it. Thus he killed many more when he died than while he lived.
