Under Gods Command
Samson

Judges 15:18 Because he was very thirsty, he cried out to the LORD, “YOU have given your servant this great victory.  Must I now die of thirst and fall into the hands of the uncircumcised?”

Samson was physically and emotionally exhausted.   After a great personal victory, his attitude declined quickly into self-pity.  “Must I now die of thirst?” Emotionally, we are most vulnerable after a great effort or when faced with real physical needs.  Severe depression often follows great achievements; so don’t be surprised if you feel drained after a personal victory.

Lets Bring it Home: During these times of vulnerability, avoid the temptation to think that God owes you for your efforts.  It was his strength that gave you victory.  Concentrate on Keeping your attitudes, actions, and words focused on God instead of your self.
