Deliverance Prayer from the Power of Sin
Bible Reading: Judges 16:1-21
“Samson went to Gaza, and there he saw a prostitute, and he went into her.
The Gazites were told, “Samson has come here.” And they surrounded the place and set an ambush for him all night at the gate of the city. They kept quiet all night, saying, “Let us wait till the light of the morning; then we will kill him.”
But Samson lay till midnight, and at midnight he arose and took hold of the doors of the gate of the city and the two posts, and pulled them up, bar and all, and put them on his shoulders and carried them to the top of the hill that is in front of Hebron.
After this, he loved a woman in the Valley of Sorek, whose name was Delilah.
And the lords of the Philistines came up to her and said to her, “Seduce him, and see where his great strength lies, and by what means we may overpower him, that we may bind him to humble him. And we will each give you 1,100 pieces of silver.”
So Delilah said to Samson, “Please tell me where your great strength lies, and how you might be bound, that one could subdue you.”
Samson said to her, “If they bind me with seven fresh bowstrings that have not been dried, then I shall become weak and be like any other man.”
Then the lords of the Philistines brought up to her seven fresh bowstrings that had not been dried, and she bound him with them.
Now she had men lying in ambush in an inner chamber. And she said to him, “The Philistines are upon you, Samson!” But he snapped the bowstrings, as a thread of flax snaps when it touches the fire. So the secret of his strength was not known.
Then Delilah said to Samson, “Behold, you have mocked me and told me lies. Please tell me how you might be bound.”
And he said to her, “If they bind me with new ropes that have not been used, then I shall become weak and be like any other man.”
So Delilah took new ropes and bound him with them and said to him, “The Philistines are upon you, Samson!” And the men lying in ambush were in an inner chamber. But he snapped the ropes off his arms like a thread.
Then Delilah said to Samson, “Until now you have mocked me and told me lies. Tell me how you might be bound.” And he said to her, “If you weave the seven locks of my head with the web and fasten it tight with the pin, then I shall become weak and be like any other man.”
So while he slept, Delilah took the seven locks of his head and wove them into the web. And she made them tight with the pin and said to him, “The Philistines are upon you, Samson!” But he awoke from his sleep and pulled away the pin, the loom, and the web.
And she said to him, “How can you say, ‘I love you,’ when your heart is not with me? You have mocked me these three times, and you have not told me where your great strength lies.”
And when she pressed him hard with her words day after day and urged him, his soul was vexed to death.
And he told her all his heart, and said to her, “A razor has never come upon my head, for I have been a Nazirite to God from my mother’s womb. If my head is shaved, then my strength will leave me, and I shall become weak and be like any other man.”
When Delilah saw that he had told her all his heart, she sent and called the lords of the Philistines, saying, “Come up again, for he has told me all his heart.” Then the lords of the Philistines came up to her and brought the money in their hands.
She made him sleep on her knees. And she called a man and had him shave off the seven locks of his head. Then she began to torment him, and his strength left him.
And she said, “The Philistines are upon you, Samson!” And he awoke from his sleep and said, “I will go out as at other times and shake myself free.” But he did not know that the Lord had left him.
And the Philistines seized him and gouged out his eyes and brought him down to Gaza and bound him with bronze shackles. And he ground at the mill in the prison” Judges 16:1-21
We are in a generation when people like to play and do things that make them feel excited or looking for something that will quench their thirst or desire either good or bad. Deliverance from the plague of sin is not an option but mandatory for anyone who desires to enjoy the goodness of God and lives forever in heaven. The life of righteousness is determined by what we surround ourselves with, spiritually and physically.
It is a pity that Samson who’s a prophetic child of destiny, with God on his side from birth, decided to hang out with the plague of sin. He desired to stay and lived in any environment that can make his life polluted and miserable in condemnation. Instead, to fight against the plague of sin in his life, the opposite was the Samson desired. in his position as a destined child, sin would not have been able to overcome him if he wars against the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes. He toyed with sin; four times he had the privilege to flee from the appearance of evil, but Samson ignored them. Even at the point of his death, instead of praying for deliverance from the plague of sin, he prayed for death.
“And Samson called unto the LORD, and said, O Lord GOD, remember me, I pray thee, and strengthen me, I pray thee, only this once, O God, that I may be at once avenged of the Philistines for my two eyes.
And Samson took hold of the two middle pillars upon which the house stood, and on which it was borne up, of the one with his right hand, and of the other with his left.
And Samson said, Let me die with the Philistines. And he bowed himself with all his might, and the house fell upon the lords, and upon all the people that were therein. So the dead which he slew at his death were more than they which he slew in his life.” Judges 16:28-30
Regrettably, Samson became a prisoner of the enemies he was meant to defeat. Play and entertained sin led to Samson’s destruction. Instead to asked God for deliverance from the power of sin, Samson preferred to die with his enemies. Many believers of today are Samson of their generation, the preferred to lives in sin, dwell in sin, and die in sin. They see sin as fun, and not as a killer. Beloved, if you play around with sin, there is no way to escape the consequences other than to repent now. The Bible commanded us “to abstain from every form of evil.” 1 Thessalonians 5:22.
Remember, there is no superman in the world of sin. Sin doesn’t recognize your anointing or respect your religious titles. Sin has no regard for your academic achievement, it is fewer concerns with your talents or spiritual gifts. No amount of offering can hinder sin to ruin your destiny or destroy your glory. It is a defiler, stealer, and killer.
If the children of Eli can end up their life in destruction because they allowed themselves to be caged with the plague of sin, I don’t think any evildoers will escape the judgment of God on evil practices. 1 Samuel 2:12-20. The only remedy is full repentance and complete holy life.
Numerous believers today, including pastors and other ministers are gambling their destines in the playground of fornication, adultery, sexual immorality, idolatry, corruption, lying, drunkenness, anger, uncleanness, stealing, envying, etc. (Galatians 5:19-21), and sometimes try to justify such with Scriptures. Are you not among such believers? Is your life aligned with Biblical principles? Watch yourself and examine your ways!
No amount of the Scripture that you know, and talented you are in singing, praying, giving, or attending church services or any religious activities you engage in, would stop the consequences of sin if you don’t repent and practicing the principle of fleeing from the appearance of any [all] form of evil. 1 Thessalonians 5:22
Remember that no unclean thing will inherit the Kingdom of God. Take a step of deliverance from the power of sin now by repent, and forsake all your evil deeds.
“I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish… I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.” Luke 13:3-5
If truly you desire and your ultimate goal is to lives forever in heaven, then get out of the playground of sin. Don’t forget that, Jesus has paid for your sins, past, present, and future. 1 John 2:1-2. He has given us His Spirit to enable us to live Like Him in righteousness. When you possess the Holy Spirit, then you can live like Jesus Christ, and He also helps us to bear godly spiritual fruits that make us a child of God. Galatians 5:22-23
