The Bible never tells us that Samson looked like Hulk Hogan, he may have looked more like Woody Allen, His strength was a secret until the spirit of lord powerfully took control of him. Samson’s superhuman strength came from God. Four times the spirit took control of Samson. With his bare hands, Samson ripped apart a lion's jaws. He killed 1,000 men with a donkey jawbone, and he set 300 foxes on a fiery rampage through Philistine fields to destroy their crops.
Samson, a man of mascular feats, also had moral defeats, largely due to his whopping weakness for women. He married his first love, though she was a Philistine. at the bachelor party, Samson challenged his bride's friends with a riddle. It so stumped them that his wife, under pressure, nagged him for the answer. Samson paid off her friend's by giving them the clothes of thirty Philistines he killed. Then went back to live with Ma and Pa.
A gal from Gaza conquered the strong man next. While spending the night with her, Samson found himself locked inside the city gates, courtesy of the city fathers. So he picked up the gates and dumped them about forty miles away. Good bye, Gaza girl.
Delilah was more than a one night stand. Her charm was deadly; however, she worked on Samson until she found the secret of his strength. He let down his hair to a woman and she chopped it off. The human colossus was reduced to a side show freak minus his hair, eyes, and strength, and dignity.
In grace, God brought triumph out of tragedy. Propped against the posts of the Philistine temple, Samson brought the house down with bare arms. The central columns of the temple collapsed, crushing thousands of Philistines. As Judges says, he killed more people when he died than he had during his entire lifetime.
Like Samson, we must submit God's gift of sex to God's spirit. If we don’t, a few minutes of fun might squander the potential of a lifetime.
