Judges 16:31 KJV
Then his brethren and all the house of his father came down, and took him, and brought him up, and buried him between Zorah and Eshtaol in the buryingplace of Manoah his father. And he judged Israel twenty years.
The story of Samson is one of the biggest tragedies in scripture in my opinion.
I asked myself a lot of questions this morning when I read this account.
Could Samson have judged Israel longer than he did? Was this the Will of God for His life? Were his folks and God disappointed in him?
These and many more question kept swarming my thoughts.
Here was someone so anointed that manifestations were at his beck and call. Think about it, who invokes the Holy Spirit right after spending the night with a harlot, who does that?
Yet foolishness is able to bring all that anointing to nothing.
Wisdom is the principal thing… – Pro 4:7.
No matter your level of anointing you still need to consider Wisdom. I dare to say that Wisdom can get you out of some situations where your anointing ‘fails.’
Have a blessed day.
