devotion by Sis. Bala Samson
Thursday, Jul 28, 2022


Judges 16:21Then the Philistines seized him and gouged out his eyes; and they brought him down to Gaza and bound him with bronze chains, and he was a grinder in the prison.”

You can afford to lose anything in life, but not the FAVOR of God! Be cautious and circumspect!  With sharp ears listen to what God has to say today, YES, He is talking to someone out there, YES…prophetic word of God comes across to you…Caveat!

When Samson was bound with seven fresh cords that had not been dried, he snapped the cords as a string of tow snaps when it touches fire. So his strength was not discovered and the FAVOR was God was still on him despite him being on the lap of Delilah.  (verse 9) Delilah took new ropes and bound him with them, Samson snapped the ropes from his arms like a thread.(verse 12) All the while he was still on the lap of Delilah and the FAVOR was God was still on him. Delilah took the seven locks of his hair and wove them into the web, she fastened it with the pin.  But he awoke from his sleep and pulled out the pin of the loom and the web.(verse 14) Our friend was still on the lap of Delilah and the FAVOR was God was still on him.

The enemy is not going to get tired, he is a roaring lion, she kept pressing until his soul was annoyed to death. Exhausted, eventually Samson spills the truth, he said: “I have been a Nazirite to God from my mother's womb. If I am shaved, then my strength will leave me and I will become weak and be like any other man." Why was the favor of God lingering on Samson despite him being languorously, indolently basking on the lap of Delilah?? LONGSUFFERING is God’s nature, are you listening? However, you cannot play with God for long! When Samson disobeyed, BANG God and His favor left Samson; you are surrounded with favor only  until you rest in Him. 

There are many out there operating with FAKE anointing, screaming, singing, shouting and jumping while sleeping on the lap of Delilah, many out there are preaching while still recklessly sleeping on the lap of Delilah. I know a colleague of mine who was translating in a big church while he had a clandestine relationship with a young girl in the office,  Very shortly he committed suicide.  The mess in your life is because of keeping Delilahs’ in your life for too long…

What are the Delilahs’ in your life???? The friend and person that you consider more important and precious than your wife, she can be your business partner or next door neighbor and you may feel that the relationship is clean but still you are on the lap of Delilah because eventually it will lead you to gutter water.  You are called to be holy and not jolly! Much more if you are doing the work of God, you need to be prudent in all areas of your life. 

Titus 2:14” Jesus gave Himself for us to redeem us from every lawless deed, and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds.”
