She let him fall asleep on her lap; and she called a man, and had him shave off the seven locks of his head. He began to weaken, and his strength left him. Then she said, "The Philistines are upon you, Samson!" When he awoke from his sleep, he thought, "I will go out as at other times, and shake myself free." But he did not know that the Lord had left him. Judges 16: 19-20 NRSV
He did not know that the Lord had left him.
Do you even believe the Lord is with you now?
What does that feel like for you?
Is there anything in your life that you must keep to have the Lord with you?
Is there anything in your life that would have to be removed for the Lord to leave you?
What would you do if the Lord left you?
Would you know if the Lord had left you?
What would that feel like?
How in your life do you depend upon the Lord?
God, may we depend upon you and your Spirit at all times. Thank you, Lord. In Jesus' name. Amen.
Statement of the day: God is with you!
