Oh Mighty Warrior

“The angel of the LORD came and sat down under the oak in Ophrah that belonged to Joash the Abiezrite, where his son Gideon was threshing wheat in a winepress to keep it from the Midianites. When the angel of the LORD appeared to Gideon, he said, “The LORD is with you, mighty warrior’” ~ Judges 6: 11-12

Unbelievably, Gideon was hiding from the enemy, scared that they would find him and take away his lunch (the wheat he threshing), but God called him a mighty warrior anyway. Why?  Because a warrior was who God saw and not a scared little man hiding from the enemy.  What are you facing today? Bullying at school?  Maybe an overbearing boss or fellow-employee? Maybe it’s physical or mental abuse at home.  Maybe it’s a medical report you just received.

Whatever the trial know this, God sees you as He has equipped you. You are a mighty warrior as the result, armed, ready and able to achieve mighty feats for God.  Don’t let circumstances or people make you hide from who God has created you to be.  Instead, speak to your circumstances and call those things that are not as if they are, in faith.  Go on, take on the world, you are destined to achieve great things you mighty warrior.

Heavenly Father, please help us to see our self as You see us. Help us to connect with who You have called us to be. Please remind us of whom we are in Christ Jesus: we are mighty warriors in an army that has never known defeat. Provide the resources, whatever they are, according to Your riches in heaven. In Jesus name, I pray, Amen.
