So I was scrolling through instagram last night and this post by @shespeaksministries had me applauding.
When The Lord calls us out on assignment, here is a valuable lesson for us all❤️ In Judges 6:12 The Angel of The Lord appears to Gideon and calls him a mighty man of valor. What?!? Mighty man of valor? This man is hiding out from fear, yet The Angel of The Lord calls him a mighty man of valor?
Here is the thing, God never sizes you up in the flesh sister! He is looking at who He created you to be to this generation. You are here on purpose, and God has given you ALL the equipment you need to do what He has called you to do!
Next, Gideon says, “Pardon me, my Lord,” “but if the LORD is with us, why has all this happened to us? And where are all His wonders about which our fathers told us.” Now, Gideon begins observing his natural circumstances above what The Lord HAD JUST TOLD HIM!! The Lord said, “I Am with you!” And then Gideon says, but what about all these circumstances? Sister, never use your natural circumstances to determine whether God is with you! I am here to tell you, “HE IS WITH YOU and HE IS FOR YOU!” Not only is He with you, but He lives in you!! Your circumstances are ZERO indication of whether God is with you or for you!! Lastly in verse 15 Gideon says, “Please, my Lord, how can I save Israel? Indeed, my clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the youngest in my father’s house. “Surely I will be with you,” the LORD replied, “and you will strike down all the Midianites as one man.” Gideon now turns to sizing up his ability to accomplish the task. He says, “My clan is the weakest and I am the youngest!” Sister, God is NEVER going to send you to do something for Him that you could accomplish in your might and power. Every assignment is going to take faith! That’s the way He works! So no, in your natural ability you CAN’T do it, but God didn’t ask you to do it in your natural ability, He has told you to do it in His ability! In His ability you have EVERYTHING you will ever need!
So when God sends you, it’s not a matter of whether the circumstances are favorable or your ability is up to par, it is a matter of YES AND AMEN!
Well isn't this a word for today folks? Stay blessed
