The Responsibility Of A Single Decision
After this he loved a woman in the Valley of Sorek, whose name was Delilah.—Judges 16:4
We face decisions every day. Many choices are inconsequential. Yet on occasion, some determine the path of our future. This is a hard-learned lesson for many men. While we look back at these moments with clarity, when we're in the moment, we often do not consider how much weight these "inconsequential choices" play in shaping the future. Samson, in all of his machismo, assumed this visit to this woman in the Valley of Sorek was inconsequential. That sex with Deliliah was irrelevant. That disclosing secrets to her was pointless. But they were not. They were the unraveling of God's man one decision at a time. The lesson is this—consider the weight of decisions made today for you may not have the strength to bear under the consequences of these decisions tomorrow.
DO THIS: Stop and make a better decision.
PRAYER: God, give me supernatural wisdom to make the decision today you want me to make. Guide me and protect me from being a victim of my human desires.
