And Delilah said to Samson, Tell me, I pray thee, wherein thy great strength lieth, and wherewith thou mightest be bound to afflict thee.
Brooks Koepka successfully defended his PGA Championship title and won his fourth Major yesterday. He was won a Major at Bethpage Black, Erin Hills, Shinnecock Hills, and Bellerive. There are times one wonders if he has a weakness. He has the physical strength for the necessary length and an agile touch for on and around putting surfaces. Delilah became sinfully fascinated with the superhuman strength of Samson after the lords of the Philistines promised her a reward if she passed along the means to Samson’s demise and weakening. She would not give him peace until he admitted his weakness and what could physically bind him. Samson, who was a Nazarite, finally gave in and admitted he would lose his might if his head were to be shaved. As we grow older, we realize our physical strength is quite limited. However, our age and life experiences should allow us to replace any physical deficits with the much mightier spiritual strength through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We can easily allow our spiritual strength be weakened by succumbing to bad personal relationships or ill-guided choices. Jesus Christ is the root and foundation of our spiritual strength and He will lead us away from any people, devices or situations which will be detrimental to our spiritual health. We must, however, be mindful and prayerful in discerning these harmful paths or relationships. We are promised in His word in Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” If we allow Him, He will place people in our lives who will strengthen us toward higher spiritual places and positions of great success!
