“For, lo, thou shalt conceive, and bear a son…” Judges 13:5 KJV
Samson was raised a deliverer by God Almighty. Ever before he was born, God spoke to his mother what he was going to become. When God was speaking to the mother, the father was not around. So, she went and spoke to the husband. She said to him ‘look, I have been visited by God and He has told me that would have a son.’ It is important that I let you know here that this woman had been barren, she did not have a child. Whenever God breaks into barrenness, He is about to bring forth something new, something unique and special.
When we talk about barrenness, don’t just zero in on the area of the fruit of the womb only. It could be in the area of your job, your business, your academics or any other thing that has not been the way it should be. If you are in this situation, I believe that something special is about to happen in your life. Because when you study the cases of men and women who encountered challenges in the area of childbirth, you will notice that the sons that were born were very special. They had a prophetic agenda. That is why the enemy would try and resist them from being born. The devil never fights what is not important. He fights what is going to be a threat to his own kingdom.
So, Samson was going to be a serious threat to the Philistines. God had already spoken before the foundation of the world that He was going to bring forth a child that would deal a deadly blow to the Philistines who were the permanent enemy of the people of Israel. That is why the devil tried to hinder her from having the baby.
Beloved, is there something the enemy has been trying to keep you from having? Cheer up, wipe your tears and blow your nose, God always has the final words in every situation.
