Saturday 13th July 2019 Prayer Devotion
Scripture Reading:- Judges 16
Topic:- Defaulters Of God’s Grace 
Text:- Judges 16:30a
For me, my second and last chance came when the whole country of the Philistines gathered to celebrate their victory over their enemies.
The five lords were present. The President was sitted. Dagon was especially decorated. All its priests were on duty. Every citizen came for this national festival.
I was brought forth from the prison as the number one exhibit of their victory. I was to be displayed and to perform some entertainment to their guts. The National stadium was the choice venue. Men were hanging on the galleries just to catch a glimpse. Delilah was again being honoured as the heroin of the day.
My fellowship with God has built up again, my hair had filled up back and some fresh anointing is flowing in my heart. I was determined not to waste this chance. I pleaded with God again, that as I bow in death, I must not go empty-handed. I was no more interested in knowing the statistics or in receiving congratulations, I knew I would be dead by the end of the day.
I asked the young man leading me by the hand, “Where are the pillars on which the entire edifice rests? Can I please feel it with my hands?” He showed me and connected my hands to the two pillars.
They all thought it was another acrobatic performance I was about to perform. They watched with keen interest. As I pulled.
God supplied the strength much more than the one I used to pull and carry the gates. It was more unique than the one I applied when I tore the lion. The pillars moved, and the stadium collapsed. Before any one could escape, they were trapped within the debris.
I supposed Dagon fell into pieces. Five lords were slaughtered at once. Delilah fell head long and uncountable
number of giants became like logs of wood.
Of course it fell finally on myself. I only opened my eyes on the other shore in the Master’s waiting Arms. You know the rest of the story.
I perceive you must pick issues out of this fragments of my life. If it can help you, I will be grateful to God that though I could not live to disciple men for God, this story of mine would contribute to other peoples’ efforts at instructing you on the path of life.
I could not outline all the issues. They are in fragments. Sit down and pick out relevant portions for your
own life. Others may need the other fragments. Other casualties would not speak so clearly to you. Look into
their own basket of fragments as well.
Some unfortunately wasted their second chances again and they have ended in hell today. Yet, I counsel you, read their story again. Shake the basket of their fragments. Something of value may drop for your instruction. “Do I say good night? I am waiting for you up here. Do not let it be a good bye.”
Though the dead would not speak like this! Samson is dead, but Hebrews 11 has listed him among the heroes of our faith. We have allowed his story to speak like this, so you can pick treasures out of the fragments. Bend your
knees today O wounded soldier. God has not finished with you, the presumptuous preacher.
Do not be arrogant, do not let results confuse you. Do not intimidate your parents in the Lord and your disciplers with the result of an anointing, though you yourself have lost your anchor of consecration. Learn his lessons; avoid his pits that you may climb on his back. Pray at this point.
1. I refuse to live a waste and unfulfilled life, help my Lord God to live my life maximizing and to Your glory henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2. I refuse to be a defaulter of Your grace oh Lord God, help me to maintain my integrity in You till the end of my life and also reign with Christ forever, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3. Oh Lord God, let Your grace and holiness be sufficient for me always henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.
Have A Blessed Saturday! www.timogundelejesu.com
