“Always turn a negative situation into a positive situation.” -Michael Jordan
Sampson, Israel’s strongest man and greatest warrior had let his guard down. He’d given Delilah, a woman from the enemy’s camp the secret to his strength: his hair. If Sampson’s hair was cut off then he’d lose his strength, and that’s exactly what happened. Thus the enemy easily captured Sampson. Thankfully the story doesn’t end there, because while Sampson was in prison his hair grew back, and in one last hurrah he used his strength to bring down the walls of a building to defeat hundreds of his enemies inside. There are two lessons from Sampson: First off, never allow the enemy an opportunity to get close to you, AND secondly, you are never too “far gone” to where God can’t redeem you. God can turn your mistake into a miracle.
And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good for those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them (Romans 8:28, NIV).
