GRAB THE PILLARS

GRAB THE PILLARS
By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

And it came to pass, when their hearts were merry, that they said, ‘Call for Samson that he may make us sport.’ And they called for Samson out of the prison house, and he made them sport: and they set him between the pillars. And Samson said unto the lad that held him by the hand, Suffer me that I may feel the pillars whereupon the house standeth, that I may lean upon them. Now the house was full of men and women; and all the lords of the Philistines were there; and there were upon the roof three thousand men and women, that beheld while Samson made sport. And Samson called unto the LORD, and said, O LORD GOD, remember me, I pray thee, and strengthen me, I pray thee, only this once, O GOD, that I may be at once avenged of the Philistines for my two eyes. And Samson took hold of the two middle pillars upon which the house stood, and on which it was born up, of the one with his right hand and the other with his left. And Samson said, ‘Let me die with the Philistines.’ And he bowed himself with all his might; and the house fell upon the lords, and upon all the people that were therein. So the dead which he slew at his death were more than they which he slew in his life.
Judges 16:25-30

The pillars of truth contain the portals which, when grabbed ahold of rightly, demolish the attacks of Satan and his advances.
The Word of truth empowers the weakest saint,
Supports the weakest mind,
Sustains the weakest soul …
Strengthens the stumbling one.

Grab the pillars of truth, my friend, in whatever realities you presently find yourself beneath and call out to the Lord.
Bend your knees and deliverance will come;
Acknowledge Christ’s might and apply yourself to the task at hand.
Courageously appeal to the Father for His sovereign strength to be displayed to all …
And commit yourself to His keeping.

Don’t be afraid;
Your soul rests safe in Him.
-----
Like Samson,
Know your strength in the time of trouble and call on Him.
The Lord will hear you,
Deliver you,
Enable you,
and rescue you in His power, strength, and might.
Look to Him and lean on Him;
Grab the pillars.

Behold, God is my salvation: I will trust, and not be afraid; for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song, He also is become my salvation.
Isaiah 12:2
