As I was trying to push a factory slide with a co-worker yesterday, owing to the difficulty in pushing the door, he said “Samson try o” but I replied him without thinking: “Samson no try o na GOD help am.”
Which makes me think that many people have claimed their exploits in GOD as their own because they have derailed from HIS path or never attest to the truth that GOD is the reason for their exploits.
Samson would have told Delilah and the Philistines that GOD was the source of his strength and they would have done nothing about his hair. Come to think of it, on a normal day, when you see a strong man like Samson having a style of hair different from others, is it not logical for people to guess accurately that Samson’s locks is the “source” of his power? – because he was declared a Nazarite from birth . . .
GOD blinded them to see the obvious thing staring them in the eye. Having locks is not the source of his power but obeying GOD by keeping it.
Unless our exploits is void of GOD, whatever we do in GOD must be known to men that GOD is the author and the finisher.
Peace To The Wise!
