Do you know Samson, strong guy from the Bible? Many people think his power was in his hair. WRONG. It was in his pact with God.

Also, many people blame delilah for Samson's fall. WRONG again. It was Samson himself.

Let's go back in time.

Samson received his strength from God. According to bible, "the Spirit of the LORD began to move upon him".

Through his immense strength and power Samson tore down the gates of a city, he tore up a lion with his bare hands and killed 1,000 enemy soldiers with the swing of a jawbone of a donkey. The type of thing that you only see in movies today. But here is the thing, he actually DID IT. It was like Samson was the Thor, or the Superman at the time, but for real. No special effects. No fantasy.

He was a hero for the Israelites.

Now, as we already know, the devil is always looking for ways to get to us. No matter who we are, the position we hold, if we're rich or poor. He doesn't care. All he wants is to impede God's people from succeeding.

And that's exactly what he did to Samson. He found a way to get to him. And it was Samson's heart. The devil knows very well that “the heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked."

You see, Samson was so strong, bold, courageous, audacious, but he was defeated by his own heart. Delilah was just an instrument in the devil's hands.
