You know the story of Samson and Delilah. Samson fell in love with a lovely woman, but there was only one problem. She was a LIAR. Sweet, but a liar. Compassionate, but a liar. Stroking his ego, but she was a big fat liar.
Sadly, Samson was laden down in sin and he didn’t even know the day or time that God LEFT HIM. Oh, it appeared he still had success, but God had pulled his protective covering off of Samson. How do we know? Well you know the story. Samson ended up dead.
It was all a set-up to kill Samson.The enemy used a sweet little liar to rock Samson asleep in his sin and in the end it destroyed him.
Be careful of sweet liars!
New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
15 Then she said to him, “How can you say, ‘I love you,’ when your heart is not with me? You have mocked me three times now and have not told me what makes your strength so great.”
All day I have been wanting to hear the Word. I love to listen to preaching because God uses preached messages (outside of church) to encourage me on my journey (this prophetic walk).
Something changed recently and someone attacked me and I couldn’t understand it until I listened to the Word of the Lord. You see sometimes people are not that secure as they are pretending they are. So they have to lie on you to defame your character in an attempt to move you out the way. God revealed to me that someone lied on me to this person and that is why they changed on me.
Well I am telling the devil I AM THE ONE, THIS IS THE PLACE AND NOW IS THE TIME.
I’m chosen and there is nothing anybody can do about it!
The lady who I am living with and I have decided that I am going to cook and we are going to make dinners for some of the senor citizen’s in the building. I’m happy about that because despite what we think, there are many people who spend the holidays alone.
I am learning that when we have great needs, it’s best to give to others. Even when people are not so nice to us, we should still give. That is what we are going to do.
Think about being a blessing in this season! And not for just people who you like either! Bless an enemy! 😉
No matter how much someone else despises you, remember God loves you! God will turn it around for your good.
I’ve been struggling with something for a while (a spiritual discipline) but I believe I have connected now and God is letting me know this is my way to VICTORY!
Sometimes people do things to make you feel bad, but guess what? God will REVERSE IT! You have the victory! REMEMBER THAT!
King James Version (KJV)
126 When the Lord turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.
2 Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The Lord hath done great things for them.
3 The Lord hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.
4 Turn again our captivity, O Lord, as the streams in the south.
5 They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.
6 He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.
