God gave Samson the gift of great physical strength. Instead of using it to rally his people and overcome the enemy, Samson used it for his own pleasure. During Samson’s 20 years as judge, Israel had no rest from Philistine rule (Jdg 15:20).
If you were absolutely certain of success, how would you serve the Lord? Do you hesitate because of doubt or fear? When you do, it’s a sign you are leaning on yourself too much.
The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.

Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.
