Our weaknesses are clearly visible. Even though I spend a majority of my time in denial about my weak spots they surface when I am tired and stressed. But when opportunities arise for me to be righteous and overcome that sin I know will tempt me, I still fall short.
The article above is a Bible Gateway devotional written as part of a Men's Devotional Series.
We all know the story of Samson found in Judges 16:1–31. After reading through the devotional I thought about how disgusted I get thinking about how hard-headed Samson is. He doesn't care about anyone but himself. He thinks he is invincible and then he falls for a trap he saw coming but walked into it anyways.
Wait! Isn't that what I do? I get angry or impatient and say hurtful things. I make poor choices because I think it won't come back to haunt me. I clearly have my short-comings, but instead of facing them alone, I can face them with God and a brother, a friend, or a loved one.
With God all things are possible (Matthew 19:26).
I pray that you are able to recognize a weakness you have, see the traps that you normally walk into, have someone to hold you accountable. To God be the glory.
