A reminder for today
Then the angel of the LORD came and sat beneath the great tree at Ophrah, which belonged to Joash of the clan of Abiezer. Gideon son of Joash was threshing wheat at the bottom of a winepress to hide the grain from the Midianites. The angel of the LORD appeared to him and said, "Mighty hero, the LORD is with you!" (Judges 6:11-12)
I think of all my heroes in the Bible I can relate to Gideon a lot. I have travelled on my journey and I have made so many mistakes that have kept me away from God’s blessing. Yet all this time God has never left me, instead in the midst of great disaster He always kept me up and stood by me regardless of what I did or where I found myself.
I often wonder why Gideon had so little faith, but when I look at myself I can understand. We have become picture people. We have this picture in our heads and that is how we want life to be. When life does not fit our picture we just brush it aside or give up or we ignore it.
My dear friend do not mistake God’s will with your own idea, but rather be open to His guidance and wisdom and listen to His voice in His Word or just follow your heart where Jesus lives.
I pray that you will learn from your mistakes and that you will rise a mighty hero for Jesus that will shine in the darkest of hour’s, in Jesus name.
Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus.
