My Name Is Delilah. Samson and Delilah’s story never ceases to fascinate me. Samson was called, anointed, and assigned by God. He was among the fortunate few whose birth was announced by an angel! That was the significance of his birth and assignment.

He did, however, have a dreadful weakness: women! Samson had a penchant for women. When he saw a woman, he would utterly lose his bearings. His erection would become his direction.

Jdg 16:1 KJV
Then went Samson to Gaza, and saw there a harlot, and went in unto her.

When it came to girls, he was uncontrollable! Despite being anointed and appointed, he later proved to be a failure since he refused to address his shortcoming.

He was so disorganized that all it took for him to lose his bearing was to ‘see’ a woman. He once saw a lady and couldn’t speak correctly! “…get her for me to wife!” he exclaimed.

Jdg 14:2 KJV
And he came up, and told his father and his mother, and said, I have seen a woman in Timnath of the daughters of the Philistines: now therefore get her for me to wife.

My Name Is Delilah

Samson was the type of person he was. The end result? His eyes had been gouged out, and he had been caught off guard in the middle of his days.

Delilah sought to learn the secret of Samson’s power in order to kill him. Samson was well aware of Delilah’s desire.

Samson tricked Delilah three times about the secret of his power, and each time the Philistines came to murder him, so Samson understood exactly what Delilah’s aim was. Nonetheless, he clung to Delilah and refused to let go.

How many of us are in this situation right now? We find ourselves in an unholy relationship that we know is deeply flawed, but we refuse to let go!

You fall in love with someone who continuously abuses you, yet you do not flee for your life. You fall in love with someone who isn’t in love with you.

You fall in love with someone who does not value you.

You fall in love with someone who beats you up at the slightest provocation, and yet you cling to that connection.

You can see that the person you’re madly in love with is taking you straight to hell, but you still cling to them. You can see that the person you love is preparing to expose you to the world of illegal drug use, but you continue to express your love!

You can tell that the person you met at church is not a true child of God based on what he or she has done to and with you, but you refuse to listen to warnings.

My Name Is Delilah

My suggestion to you this morning is straightforward. Don’t end up like Samson.

You have a gift; don’t waste it by begging God to let you die!

Don’t let it lead to you being delivered right into the hands of your adversaries. Don’t let it get so bad that your spiritual eyes are severed and you can’t see the perfect law of liberty!

Don’t let the brother or sister who has been greatly utilized by God become a pitiful sight to behold.

Escape for your life! If Samson had fled, he could have been rescued. However, his lack of discipline led to his death. Flee! That is what the Bible says. When the Bible says to run, don’t say, ‘Let’s reason together!’
