Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! We all come to a trace in our life where we rely on our own strength. In Judges 16: 17-22 we see the relationship between Samson and the strength of his hair. Samson’s hair served as his strength and caused him to see many victories throughout his path. If you explore the text further, you will find that with his hair shaved there’s no room for him to walk in sweat less victories.
As we fast forward today, the natural hair arena is taking the world by storm. Many men/women such as myself, have returned back to their natural hair that God has gifted them. 1 Corinthians 11:15 demonstrates the connection between a woman and her hair. “But if a woman has long hair, it is a glory to her; for her hair is given to her for a covering. Our hair is a glory to us which simply means that it is a source of honor, fame, or admiration, a distinguished ornament or object of pride.
Many men/women are novices with their own hair and chose to not embrace it fully. Situations, circumstances, life events, or destructive patterns can lead to a road of frustration and a host of other things if we don’t become spiritually rooted and grounded in The Lord concerning our hair. Believe it or not our God desires to be included in every fabric of our lives. The Lord recently revealed this truth to me: As I rely on Him for other areas of my life, I must include him in my natural hair journey as well. Am I speaking to you right now? It’s okay because we all need a little push to return back to the center. The Truth. Beloved, nothing less than the word of God.
Warriors, you must know that as you rely on your food to provide you nourishment, and a host of other things, be encouraged to know that The Living Word has the answer as well. Ladies and gentlemen I submit to you that The Word still works! Are you having trouble growing your hair or breakage? Anything opposite of progress? Take joy in the fact that there’s nothing but space and opportunity to retract and start fresh. RISE to the occasion. Happy growing! To be continued….
