WHERE IS YOUR STRENGTH?

WHERE IS YOUR STRENGTH?

As a Christian, you must have read or heard the story of Samson in the Book of Judges!
 
Let me not bore us with the long story, you can read it up, if you have forgotten.
 
In Judges 16, his wife, Delilah, asked him the secret of his strength. The third time, he revealed it to her. It was his long hair.
She connived with his enemies who considered his a National threat!!!
 
They cut his hair and that weakend him. He lost his strength and his victorious life.
 
Notice that his wife exchanged the secret of his success for some good money. It means that his strength which was his gift had tremendous value.
 
He ceased to become a champion until his hair grew back.
 
Now the moral of the story is that at creation, God placed in you something that will become your point of strength. It is that thing that you must guard jealously cos it will be under attack by those who discover your source.
It has tremendous value and can help you make impact in such a way that people will wonder if you are normal.
 
If you are a writer, singer, actor, director, painter, dancer, architect, fashionista, scientist, poet, leader etc you will do it without stress that your competitors and even close family members and besties will envy you. They will pay to derail you!
 
What is that your success of STRENGTH? Not necessarily physical strength like runners, boxers, gymnastics, weightlifters. It is your special endowment that people are ready to pay any amount for your services.
 
Jephthah, Elijah, Elisha, Gideon, David all had it. Esther, Deborah also had it. Ruth, Rahab had it. There is no class distinction for you to possess it. It lives in you.
 
For some, it was revealed to your parents at birth like Samson, while for others, it may have manifested while growing up.
How did you lose that winning streak of always taking the first position in school? And today, you are tail and not head.
How did you stop getting major recognitions in drama as you did in school? You were good in the debating society but now you can barely write or speak on TV. So many questions here.
 
It's time to get your hair to grow back!
May it not grow when you can no longer use it and be celebrated.
 
For me, I ought to be in the class of Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, late Dora Akunyili etc.
I should have been making waves in Nollywood.
 
I am getting my hair grow again. Thank God, that I still can, if Jesus tarries.
 
Don't let the misses or errors you've been through deter you from starting again.
 
March into your purpose in this new month of March.
 
The Israelites marched around Jericho 7 times and the walls of limitations crumbled and they became victorious.
 
You can be victorious again!
