Samson received a great mission from God, but his mission came with things to do that he had to respect: not to cut his hair and not to drink alcohol. In exchange for his obedience to God, he received incredible strength. A great strength. It must have been difficult at times for Samson to meet that request. But he was faithful and he respected God’s request.
The Father has a great mission for you too, he has a mission for each of us. It’s up to us to find out. What he asks you to do is obey him. There are always good things that happen when you obey God as well as your parents. When you tell mom and dad you’re going to do something, do it, follow Samson’s example. He had told God that he would obey and that he would not cut his hair, and he did. It’s not always easy, but when you do it, good things come out of it.
“Father I need your help, help me to obey and do what I said I would do. Sometimes I forget and sometimes I don’t feel like doing it anymore, help me keep my promises. Amen.”
