It’s not too late for you 

“Lord…please strengthen me just one more time.” Judges 16:28 NLT 

In prison Samson prayed, “Lord…please strengthen me just one more time…Then Samson put his hands on the two centre pillars that held up the temple. Pushing against them with both hands…the temple crashed down…So he killed more people when he died than he had during his entire lifetime” (vv. 28-30 NLT). How did Samson end up in this prison? Delilah! The Bible says, “She pressed him daily” (v. 16). Satan is persistent, and he waits to catch you in an unguarded moment. That’s why there are certain doors in life you should never open. If you feed the wrong appetite for a day, you can end up struggling with it for a lifetime. Perhaps you have seen the poster that says, “Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn’t matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle; when the sun comes up, you’d better be running.” The good news is, Samson remembered God! And it’s a wonderful day when you remember God and reach again for Him. Note the words “he killed more people when he died than he had during his entire lifetime” (v. 30 NLT). Samson’s greatest victory was recorded in the final chapter of his life. In fact, he is named among the heroes of faith in Hebrews chapter eleven. Regardless of where you are today or what shape you’re in, turn to God. He will help you make a comeback. It’s not too late for you.
