Samson Of the Bible
From the Bible, is the story of Samson.
He lived an incredible life that really happened!
He was to be a Nazrite, and set apart!
His hair was to grow long, from the start!
He was to deliver Israel from their enemy throughout!
This was what his mission was all about!
He destroyed the lion and bear with his bare hands!
And sent burning foxes throughout the enemy lands!
He destroyed a thousand! With the jawbone of an ass!
God had given him such an incredible task!
With his strength, came temptation’s call!
And soon, his whole life took a fall!
The strength from God had departed from him!
Now, there was no one who could help him!
Ridiculed and mocked, he became a slave.
He couldn’t free himself, no matter what he gave.
He was brought before the Philistine’s temple.
Mocked and whipped to set as an example.
He cried out to God, for help that hour…
God gave him the strength and the power!
The temple came crashing down all around him!
Now, there was just rubble that surround him!
May this be a lesson, that speaks to me and you!
God is not fooled, no matter what we try to do!
We can act like we have everything we needed!
Without God, our life is never completed!
May we not compromise what God has given!
And walk in his strength, each day we’re livin’!
