Spiritual Strength For Each Day

The whole Bible is full of the testimonies of people who humbled themselves, who laid aside their glory and surrendered themselves. If you want to remain fervent in your love for the Lord, then renounce self-glory! “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 2:5). The fire of the Holy Spirit begins to shine, to burn, to warm, as soon as a sinner humbles himself as Jesus humbled Himself and emptied Himself.
Samson, a figure from the Old Testament, is an example of this. In the midst of his enemies he humbled himself, and we hear the cry of repentance come from his heart in Judges 16:28, “O Lord God, remember me, I pray thee, and strengthen me, I pray thee, only this once, O God.” With these few words, Samson humbled himself in his impotence, in his failure, under his sins. And after he had humbled himself, the dying Lamb who overcame death revealed Himself to him. The victory of the Lord through Samson was the most glorious when he surrendered his last strength in repentance. This obedience that was expressed prophetically through Samson in the presence of the enemy powers allowed the fire of the Holy Spirit to burn.
