[The Glory Unveiled]
Then she called, “Samson, the Philistines are upon you!” He awoke from his sleep and thought, “I’ll go out as before and shake myself free.” But he did not know that the LORD had left him. ( Judges 16:20)
Spiritual stability is not guaranteed because of anointing. What happens when the anointing is not immediately present? Samson was very anointed but he slept too much and he was also complement with the Lord’s ways. He didn’t balance the anointing with the discipline of body and soul. Sleep stole from the world the anointing and blessings of mighty men and women. Even today, a destiny is ebbing away somewhere because of sleep. Someone who is supposed to be awake this very moment to interceed for someone is sleeping. An apostle or prophet to the nations may be sleeping away his destiny somewhere now. Samson jeopardised the destiny and safety of Israel because of the indiscipline of his soul and body. Often, our destinies are tied corporately to the destinies of others, so that our failure is in part the failure of others. Ignorantly, like Samson we are deceived to think that the anointing could compensate for our bodily weaknesses. But unfortunately, the anointing has its place and discipline has its place too. Let us not sleep our destinies away.
Prayer_Bead: Father in Heaven, thank you for opening my eyes to the truth of your word. Keep me awake to your counsel and guidelines. Teach me to obey You at all cost.
