The Holy Spirit (particularly the joy that the Spirit exhibits in our life) is our only true source of strength and stability in our lives. Samson was enabled by the Holy Spirit with amazing physical strength, but over time he took that strength for granted and began to rely upon himself instead of the power of God. When we are reminded how truly frail and weak creatures we are, our only hope for strength in the midst of the trials of this life is our total reliance upon the power of God and the enabling strength of the Holy Spirit.
