Jud 15:18-19, 18 Because he (Samson) was very thirsty, he cried out to the LORD, “You have given your servant this great victory. Must I now die of thirst …? , (NIV).
Samson had a season of great victory, with a jaw bone of a donkey, he killed a 1,000 men. This was God’s great victory through the hands of Samson. Immediately after the victory, Samson was very tired, exhausted and thirsty for water. It was somehow a new season but of defeat, and he cried to God again. Vs. 19, “Then God opened up the hollow place in Lehi, and water came out of it. When Samson drank, his strength returned and he revived.” Water was to give him strength to endure the heat of the sun and revive him to face another season.
Tough seasons we all face push us to the brink of quitting. Prolonged seasons may push you to quit on God. Like Samson, right in that hot season, we can cry to God for water. He who was faithful in one season must be trusted in the current season. May His word revive and give us strength for current and for the next season. While seasons may change for us all, He never changes.
