“the ropes around his arms. . . melted”
– Judges 15:14
Like the powerful Samson, we often find ourselves in positions where we are overwhelmed- bound and restrained by life’s demands and every way we turn we are halted or obstructed. We are limited by the knots, sometimes endless snarls of complications, in our lives. Samson was given the power by God and through the Spirit to burst any bond or rope that was put upon him. Samson’s power and gifts were matchless throughout history.
However, we are not without resources and gifts. The power of God is always stronger than the tangles of life.
It does not matter the size or gravity of the knots, for as the prayer says-
“in your hands there is no knot which can not be undone”
