Have you had your eyes gourged out?

“Samson! The Philistines have come to capture you!”Samson

When he woke up, he thought, “I will do as before and shake myself free.” But he didn’t realize the Lord had left him.

So the Philistines captured him and gouged out his eyes. They took him to Gaza, where he was bound with bronze chains and forced to grind grain in the prison.   —Judges

Ever felt invincible and comfortable in your walk? Then something happened and you tumbled like a rock off a mountain in a mudslide.  You have no clue what happened, you “never saw it coming.”

Now your faith lies in shreds. Or, you may be a bit beyond that now, but your faith has been ravaged and you have nothing left to hang on to. Either way, you feel like you’ve been abandoned and that this whole “Jesus thing” can’t cut the mustard.

…before long, his hair began to grow back.   —Judges

There is much that I do not know. The one thing that IS in my realm of experience is that your hair does begin to grow back. God has no intention of leaving you bald.

And when he gives you new hair, he gives you new power.

  1. MAN! I REALLY needed to hear that this morning. Sometimes I get so tired of pushing on pillars, trying to get those temples to tumble. Hard to find a moment to rest and let that crew cut turn into a pony tail again.
