Rely Not, on Your Own Strength

DAILY VERSE

… When he woke up, he thought, “I will do as before and shake myself free.” But he didn’t realize the Lord had left him.

Judges 16:20

 

DEVOTION

When we rely on our own strength, we quickly realize that it’s not enough. When we attribute our God-given talents to our own efforts and inner strength, our resolve will crumble under the weight of hard trials. Samson made the same mistake, but he realized his error and grew in his faith and God strengthened him one last time when he called out to Him. God is quick to redeem those who sincerely seek Him.
