Judges 16:28,30 (NIV) Then Samson Prayed to the Lord, “O sovereign Lord, remember me. O God, please strengthen me just once more and let me with one blow get revenge on the Philistines for my two eyes”…. “Let me die with the Philistines!” … Thus Samson killed many more when he died than while he lived.
The purpose of Samson’s birth was to destroy the Philistines, so the fact that he killed many more at his death than while he lived is a great feat in the context of his life!
But how did it all happen?
When Samson asked for one more chance, the Lord heard him.
When Samson asked for one more chance, the Lord remembered him.
He recovered his strength, dealt with his enemies and fulfilled destiny with just one blow in one single day!
It doesn’t matter what you have done, what you have lost, how far away you’ve gone or for how long you’ve been there-
You can still recover all with one blow in one single day!
The Lord can still reconnect you to your destiny and give you a second chance that’s far more beautiful than the first!
He can still make your latter end greater than your past.
All it takes is a call for His mercy just this ONCE- a call for another chance… a call God is forever waiting for all through the realm of time.
Would you make that call today?
O sovereign Lord, remember me. Like You did Samson, O God, please strengthen me just this once… Amen.
