The scoundrel escapes once, twice, three times, until one day he meets his match. We play around with sin, thinking that this time, nothing will happen. And we keep going back to it. Until the day when we’re caught and destroyed.
He woke up and thought, “I will do as I did before and shake myself free.” But he did not realize that the LORD had left him.
Judges 16:20b NET
Samson was a strong man who thought he was always in control. In the end, however, his arrogance and his lack of self control delivered him up to his enemies.
If we play around with sin, thinking that we’re going to get the upper hand as before, we will wake up one day bound by the devil, under the control of the Evil One, with our life destroyed and useless for God’s purpose.
