TOPIC - THE POWERFUL CAN BE BROUGHT DOWN

Read: Judges 16:21-25

MEMORISE: _Then they killed the sons of Zedekiah before his eyes, put out the eyes of Zedekiah, bound him with bronze fetters, and took him to Babylon_ (2 Kings 25:7).


EXPOSITION
God’s power so much rested upon Samson for a purpose – deliverance of His people. Yes, he did some great exploits – the gate, the killing of 1000 soldiers with the jawbone of an ass, the bands, etc. From onset, the man of God was making wave and gaining popularity among his own people and in the camp of the enemies. When one is doing well in business, career, or life, it is time to be very careful. This is because, one may get intoxicated by his achievements, and therefore, sees others who are less-privileged as weak, lazy, and unfortunate. There is always the danger of respite, a thing that overtook King David and almost finished him *(2 Sam. 11:1ff).*

Nearly every man is culpable of this. Power corrupts. For the purpose of today’s devotion, it is important that we particularly discuss opposite sex (women for men, and men for women) amongst other factors that can bring powerful man down. As believers, we must beware of strange women/men, strange money, strange position and any such thing as strange to the will of God, or the holiness enshrined in, and propagated in, and by the Bible.

Believers must watch their ways and daily examine themselves (2 Cor. 13:5). Determination is another key, factor, if we would not be reproached and brought down, as we climb the ladder of progress. Don’t  forget, the devil moves around to steal, kill and destroy (Jn. 10:10a). If you abandon God, He will also leave you to Satan (1 Cor. 5:5; 2 Tim. 2:12). Don’t break God’s law (Eccl. 10:8). Have you left God, and are already being reproached, you can come back to Him now *(cf. Lam 5:21). You will not be brought down, in Jesus’ name.

PRAYER POINTS
1. Lord, please raise me up again from where I have fallen.
2. Father, let those who call themselves mighty in the powers of darkness in my family be put to shame.
3. Oh Lord, remember Your promises upon Christ Apostolic Church, and fulfil them accordingly.
