Judges 15:9-13

 

This is probably the craziest part of the story. Israel worked with the Philistines to capture Samson. The people who were persecuting them, hurting them, oppressing them, came under fire from this guy Samson and the people of Israel volunteered to help.

 

You have to be in a really bad place to fall this in love with your captor. You have to truly fear the unknown or consequences to let this kind of thing happen in your life. They were working with the very people who were the source of all their pain and problems. Yet sin had them so blinded to it that they didn’t even know the Philistines were the enemy any more.

 

In your life, what have you allowed to stay that is only hurting you? What grudge are you still holding? What desire have you not yet surrendered? What pain have you held onto that you need to surrender to God?
