Read Judges 16:1-3.
Sampson was one of the judges of Israel. When he was surrounded by his enemies who were lying in wait to kill him, God gave him strength at midnight to overturn the “gates” of his enemies.
The gates represented the seat of authority. When you feel surrounded by your enemies, rise at midnight and receive the strength of the LORD to overturn their gates in your life.
Samson and Delilah
“Now Samson went to Gaza and saw a harlot there, and went in to her. When the Gazites were told, “Samson has come here!” they surrounded the place and lay in wait for him all night at the gate of the city. They were quiet all night, saying, “In the morning, when it is daylight, we will kill him.” And Samson lay low till midnight; then he arose at midnight, took hold of the doors of the gate of the city and the two gateposts, pulled them up, bar and all, put them on his shoulders, and carried them to the top of the hill that faces Hebron.”
Read Ruth 3.
Naomi had suffered great loss. Ruth, her daughter-in-law, had chosen to align herself with Naomi and the God of Israel, rather than returning to the idolatry of Moab.
The Law of God made a way of restoration for both Naomi and Ruth.
As Ruth submitted to the counsel of Naomi, God awakened Boaz at midnight to begin the process of redemption and restoration.
Praise God that no matter what loss you have suffered, He has a way of restoration.
Receive any counsel you need. Ask God to awaken any who are part of your process of redemption so that they carry it out fully.
