Under Gods Command

Samson and Delilah

Judges 16:04-05 Sometime later, he fell in love with a woman in the Valley of Sroek whose name was Delilah.  The rulers of the Philistines went to her and said, “See if you can lure him into showing you the secret of his great strength and how we can overpower him so we may tie him up and subdue him.  Each one of us will give you eleven hundred shekels of silver.   

Judges 16:15 Then she said to him, “How can you say, I love you, when you won’t confide in me?  This is the third time you have made a fool of me and haven’t told me the secret of your great strength.”

Samson was deceived because he wanted to believe Delilah’s lies.  Although he could strangle a lion, he could not smother his burning lust and see Delilah for who she really was.

Lets Bring it Home: How can you keep your desire for love and sexual pleasure from deceiving you?

1) You must decide what kind of a person you will love before passion takes over.  Determine whether a person’s character and faith in God are as desirable as his or her physical appearance.

2) Because most of the time you spend with your spouse will not involve sex, your companion’s personality, temperament, and commitment to solve problems must be as gratifying as his or her kisses.

3) Be patient.  Time and observation often reveal what is beneath the pleasant appearance and attentive touch.
