What can God do through you? “The Lord is with you, you mighty man of valor!” (Judges 6:12 NKJV). Many people feel inadequate to do anything for God. But God doesn’t see you as insufficient. He sees you as a complete, lacking nothing in him! In scripture, Gideon was hiding out from his enemies. Gideon was a military leader, judge, and prophet. An angel appeared before him and said; “You are a brave man, Gideon, and the Lord is with you. Go out boldly, and save your people from the power of the Midianites”.
He was afraid and didn’t feel equipped to do what God called him to do. Gideon was focused on his circumstances and his limitations, but God-focused on what he could do through Gideon. Gideon felt weak; God saw him as reliable.
Gideon felt unqualified; God saw him as competent to do the job. Gideon felt insecure and full of fear; God saw him as fearless and full of boldness. Sure enough, when Gideon obeyed God against all the odds, he ended in victory!
You may feel that you’re average, you may think your ordinary, but God sees you as a champion. He believes in you and your strength. You’re courageous, victorious, and an overcomer. You may not see yourself that way, but that doesn’t change God’s image of you. God still sees you precisely as his word describes you. Dare to start viewing yourself as God sees you, as a Victor!
Prayer for today. - “Father, thank you for giving me a spirit of boldness. Thank you for giving me a sense of power, love, and sound mind I yield myself to you.
