Mighty warrior // 09-05-22

“When the angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon, he said, ‘The Lord is with you, mighty warrior.’” Judges‬ ‭6:12‬ ‭NIV

When we first meet Gideon he is threshing wheat in a wine press, hiding from the enemy. From his perspective he was the opposite of a mighty warrior, from the smallest clan and least in his family. And yet God saw the potential in him, saw his willingness to go for it if he could only get past his questions, disappointments and insecurities to see for himself the warrior within! Just maybe God knows me better than I know myself? Just maybe He sees a bigger picture and has specific plans for my life too! Lord, thank You that I am precious in Your sight, thank You that You are with me, thank You that I can do what You say I can do as I put my trust in You. Thank You for Your patience with me, and please help me to hear Your voice this week and to obediently and courageously go wherever You lead. Amen 🙌🏼🙏🏼
