Be Strong in the Lord and in the Power of His Might
Think about some of the great men of faith. Solomon was the wisest of all men, he had great wealth and great power. Samson was the strongest of all men, able to kill 1,000 men with a jawbone. David was the most devoted, a man after God’s own heart, who wrote most of the Psalms. Moses was the most humble, able to lead the people of God to the promised land.
But each one fell to temptation and suffered for it. You might think, “I’m a strong Christian, I have a strong faith…” But ask yourself, are You wiser than Solomon? Are you stronger than Samson? Are you more devoted than David? Are you more humble than Moses? Because each of these men fell, and their fall was recorded for us so we may learn from their mistakes.
