The Power of Vision: Why They Blinded Samson

The Power of Vision: Why they Blinded Samson

Samson was a very strong man. 

He could pull the doors and gateposts of a city gate and carry them to the top of a hill. (Judges 16:3)

He  could also catch 300 foxes, set their tails on fire and release them to burn Philistine fields. (Judges 15:3-4)

He could even kill 1000 Philistine men with just the jawbone of a donkey. (Judges 15:15)

However when the Philistines captured him, They put out his eyes (Judges 16:21) and made him blind. 

You would have expected them to amputate his hands since he was using his hands to kill them and destroy their gates and fields.

But no. They knew the power of vision and so they put out his eyes. They understood that if he lost his vision, he could go nowhere- both literally and figuratively.

Therefore never lose your vision.

Never let go of the vision that God has given you for your life regardless of what happens to you.
Write down the vision so that the person who reads it may run Habakkuk 2:2
Heed the Bible for its tells us to Write down the vision so that the person who reads it may run (Habakkuk 2:2)  and write down the vision for your life.

Write it down with pen and on paper even if you cannot physically run towards it because of your present circumstances.

After etching it on paper, read it every day and run towards it mentally by imagining yourself achieving it.

This running towards your vision mentally is very important since it is actually having faith for Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1) physically.
Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen Hebrews 11:1

Then, combine this faith action of running towards your vision mentally with the spiritual action of asking God in prayer to open a way for you to run towards your vision physically and He will do only what He can do because With God all things are possible. (Matthew 19:26)
With God all things are possible Matthew 19:26
