14 And when he came unto Lehi, the Philistines shouted against him: and the Spirit of the LORD came mightily upon him, and the cords that were upon his arms became as flax that was burnt with fire, and his bands loosed from off his hands.
15 And he found a new jawbone of an ass, and put forth his hand, and took it, and slew a thousand men therewith.
Samson was blessed with great strength to judge Israel, but just like most of us he kept finding himself in bad situations. From losing his temper to countless other things he just couldn’t get it together. How many of us can relate? Pretty much everyone of us. We put ourselves in a bad situation day in and day out. We get bound down with troubles that we should have never got ourselves involved in. They thing that bothers me is the fact that people say the devil has them bound down, but the truth is, you let the enemy bind you just like Samson let himself be bound. You only need to remember the power of our God and you can break those chains. You can be set free. Now, you can run when you do, but for this I would rather be like Samson and go to war with the enemy. He refused to run. He knew they would only chase him. Instead, he took a stand. He took a jawbone a laid waste to them. It is time we break our chain, that we have let the enemy put us in, and then fight back. Our God is more powerful and nothing can match him. He is wanting us to take that stand and put the enemy on the run. Remember you only become bound down when you let it happen.
I Will Not Be Bound
