Judges 16:5 “And the lords of the Philistines came up to her and said to her, ‘entice him, and find out where his great strength lies, and by what means we may overpower him, that we may bind him to afflict him; and every one of us will give you eleven hundred pieces of silver.’”
In order to control and manipulate your life, the enemy always employs the tool of enticement in trapping you the believer. This is what happened in the case of Samson. The lords of the Philistines employed Delilah to entice Sampson so that they could know the source of his power in order to bind and afflict him. When the enemy is able to entice you, he will surely get you cornered and afflict your life. That is why, as a child of God, you must not allow the enemy to entice you with anything. Samson’s weakness was women and so, Delilah was used to trap him. Note that the enemy always looks for something which is attractive to you in order to trap you. When the enemy is able to entice you, you will surely be a victim to his evil schemes. Samson’s hair, which was the source of his strength, was cut off and his eyes poked out when he was caught by the Philistines. As a child of God, you are a victor and not a victim and that is why you must not fall for the enemy’s enticement. As a child of God, you need to be as wise as a serpent and be sensitive in the spirit at all times. You must not suffer the same fate which befell Samson by being enticed by the enemy. I invoke the blood of Jesus against every “Delilah” of these end times who is on a mission to entice and entrap you into failure, defeat, stagnation, barrenness and shame. May the agenda of the enemy to entice and entrap you backfire into the pit of hell in the name of Jesus. I declare over your life that you will not be a victim but a victor in Jesus’ mighty name.
