You are a Mighty Warrior

Too often, we allow our insecurities to dictate what we think we can do for God.  We look in the mirror and judge what we see based on the world’s definition of beauty.  We allow man’s version of success to dictate how we feel about our lives and accomplishments.

How differently would we live if we saw in ourselves what God sees?  Because God sees a mighty warrior.

Read the story of Gideon (Judges 6:11-24.) Go ahead. I’ll wait.

Did you see it?

Then the Angel of the Lord appeared to him and said, “The Lord is with you, mighty warrior.”  - Judges 6:12

Now, at first glance, this may not appear to mean much.  After all, the Bible is full of impressive individuals. How many times have we wished for the patience of Job, the faith of Abraham or the perseverance of Paul? The Lord calls Gideon a mighty warrior.  So what?

But, read on.

Gideon said to Him, “Please, Lord, how can I deliver Israel? Look, my family is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the youngest in my father’s house.” – Judges 6:15

Gideon did not come from an impressive family and, on top of that, he was the baby of the bunch.  In his estimation, he was young and he was weak.  In fact, when the Angel of the Lord came to him, he was threshing wheat in a wine press because he was hiding from the Midianites.  No one would have looked at him and seen a mighty warrior.  No one except the One who had created him to be just that.

We can not know what a day will bring or what trials we will face.  For sure, there will be times when we feel too weak and ill-equipped for the task at hand.  We may even find ourselves, like Gideon, trying to hide from the enemy.

But God sees in us everything He created us to be.  So, when the storm comes, listen for His voice.  Hear Him say to you, “The Lord is with you, mighty warrior.”

Mid-Week Links: The I’ve-Been-Sick-and-Have-Not-Read-Any-Blogs-This-Week Edition

It’s been a long week of coughing and sneezing for the peeps in this house. The most exciting thing I have read is the back of the cough syrup bottle to see if it was time to make the rounds with the meds again. So, while I am certain there has been some fabulous stuff written this week, I’m going to link up to some posts from the last couple of weeks that you may have missed. nightstand

  • In the Midst of the Mess by Vanderbilt Wife (Because Motherhood is all kinds of awesome and all kinds of exhausting and it’s all good.)
  • Idol Lies at Servant’s Life (You don’t always recognize the golden calf until you’re holding it in your hand.)
  • Six Ways to Memorize Scripture at LifeWay Women All Access (I have hidden your Word in my heart, that I might not sin against you. – Psalm 119:11)
  • 4 Steps to Take When You’re Not Ready for Change at A Holy Experience (You could read any of Ann’s posts and walk away from your computer filled with the love of Christ. Also – you can leave her blog up and listen to the music as you go about your morning. Good stuff.)

I hope today is full of all of your favorite things, my friends. Whatever trial or temptation you face, just remember that Christ is enough.
