Unbind Your Strong Man

7 Samson said to her, “If they bind me with seven fresh bowstrings that have not been dried, then I shall become weak and be like any other man.” 8 Then the Lords of the Philistines brought up to her seven fresh bowstrings that had not been dried, and she bound him with them. ~ Judges 16:7-8

Samson had become so Spiritually asleep that he didn’t feel Delilah binding him with fresh bowstrings. Samson had allowed the enemy to enter into his life and bind him. Oftentimes, this is exactly how we are today. When we become spiritually asleep, we allow the Devil to enter into our lives and bind us. We allow our past strongholds to return and bind us as they try to bring us back into slavery to sin.

Jesus said you must first bind the strong man before you can pillage his home. When we aren’t spiritually awake, we allow the enemy to enter into our lives and bind up our strong man, our spirit man. And if we aren’t careful, the enemy won’t just bind our spirit man up; he’ll kill him, which will spiritually kill us.

Peter warns us to stay awake, for our adversary is like a prowling lion seeking someone to devour. God warned Cain to rule over sin because sin was constantly crouching at the door with the desire to overcome and rule him. We have to stay spiritually awake that our strongman will never be overcome and bound so that we may never return to our old self. So that we may grow spiritually in Christ Jesus, becoming more and more like Him.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Unbind Your Strong Man.
