Today Reminder - 21 March 2013 (Impossible)



A reminder for today
Then the LORD turned to him and said, "Go with the strength you have, and rescue Israel from the Midianites. I am sending you!"  "But Lord," Gideon replied, "how can I rescue Israel? My clan is the weakest in the whole tribe of Manasseh, and I am the least in my entire family!" The LORD said to him, "I will be with you. And you will destroy the Midianites as if you were fighting against one man." (Judges 6:14-16)

I just love this initial conversation between Gideon and the Lord. Gideon obviously shocked to his core with this statement from the Lord that he must go and rescue Israel. Gideon’s reply is so typical to what we would normally do when he says that his clan is the weakest and that he is the least of his entire family and why would the Lord pick someone so simple to do such an important and obvious impossible task. The Lord’s reply is just awesome: "I will be with you. And you will destroy the Midianites as if you were fighting against one man."

My dear friend, how many times does the Lord bring something across our path and we would just push it aside and believe that it is impossible. God can take the weakest tribe and pick the least of them all and make that person a hero that defeats an army as if he is fighting against one man. 

God wants you to stop thinking that you are not worthy. He wants you to place your trust in Him and let Him destroy your challenges and your impossibilities so that you will know He is the Lord and there is none like Him. He can make you victorious even when faced with impossible odds.

Let the Lord take control in your life and watch as He brings success over your journey in the most incredible of situations.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus.  

Cheers
