Read Judges Chapter 16 (it’s a short chapter)

How could Samson continue to associate with Delilah when it SHOULD have become OBVIOUS to him that she was trying to DESTROY him ?

LUST of the FLESH…. Samson’s sexual appetite seriously affected his common sense…. and many young men fall into such “trap”  today (in our PRESENT TIMES).

Victory over the flesh is possible through the power of the Holy Spirit…. when a human body is rid of demons AND then “filled” with the holy Spirit…. you have the power to control…. you have the power to choose your way. Galatians 5:24, 1 John 5:4,  1 Corinthians 15:57, Romans 6:12

But Matthew 12:43-45, Luke 11:24-26 shows what happens to a man delivered of demons BUT NOT filled with the Holy Spirit…. it is useless to cast out the demons UNLESS the person WANTS to LIVE FOR GOD and accepts the Holy Spirit into their life.

Unfortunately, WITHOUT the Holy Spirit…. and PARTICULARLY if inhabited by demons…. a human does not have the ability to control their body, even if they may wish to do so.  Ephesians 2:2-3,  2 Timothy 2:26, John 8:34-36

A good sexual appetite is not sinful….. but MUST be controlled…. along with every other “appetite” you might have. 1 Corinthians 6:12

in fact ALL behavior of your body SHOULD be under YOUR control….. and God will hold you accountable for allowing “unauthorized use” of your body…..  as well as wilful negligence. 1 Corinthians 14:32

You CAN be delivered of demons if you really WANT to be…. therefore you cannot “blame them” for your actions EVEN IF THEY ARE THE CAUSE.

If you wish to be FREE….. and you want to be IN CONTROL…. SEEK for your deliverance…. GOD is well able to deliver you, or He may send someone to minister deliverance to you (according to His wisdom).

Prayer for Today:

Loving Heavenly Father, Help us to have the right attitude towards You….. and avoid the seduction of demons…. help us to be light and salt on the earth leading people away from the darkness and into Your wonderful Light… Amen


There is a saying which my mother taught me, “this book will keep you from sin…. and sin will keep you from this book”

The book is the Bible…. and it is so important for Christians to read it EVERY DAY…

One way to know if you have been “born again” is in your attitude and feeling towards  the Bible…. do you love it or merely tolerate it… or do you keep far from it.

It is not good enough simply to read inspiring books about the lives of other Christians or to read books ABOUT the Bible…. you must read the Bible itself and with the right spiritual approach…. you must read it  in FAITH… and not like you read “other” books.

Here are verses that support this:

Psalm 119:9 “How can a young man cleanse his way ? By taking heed according to your word”

Psalm 119:11 “Your word have I hidden in my heart, that I might not sin against You”

Psalm 119:18 “Open my eyes, that I may see Wondrous things from Your law.”

Bible reading plans are a good way to make sure you read it every day….. BUT there is a danger of “RITUAL READING”… meaning that although you read it, the deeper impact of what you read…. on your personality…. is not effected.

Prayer for Today:

Loving Heavenly Father, Please guide us through reading Your Word and reveal to us the relevance to our lives… through Your Holy Spirit…. in Jesus name, we ask… Amen.
