Then the Lord turned to him and said, ‘Go in this might of yours, and you shall save Israel from the hand of the Midianites. Have I not sent you?’ – Judges 6:14
When the Angel of God met Gideon in this story, he was hiding in fear because of the enemy. Gideon had so much self doubt that the Angel had to introduce him to himself; i.e. the real Gideon, the way God made him and sees him – a mighty man of valor who can save a nation, but who was in confinement because he lacked belief in himself.
Notice that, God called Gideon “mighty man of valor” before he could ever do anything great; and we saw how Gideon then went on to defeat the Midianites in later chapters of this book. This shows, all Gideon needed to unleash his potential, was to see himself the way God saw him.
When you look at the mirror of God’s word what do you see about yourself? Like Gideon if God came to you today, what will He call you? If He calls you billionaire, evangelist to the nations, world changer, governor, minister, philanthropist, top designer, would you believe Him? Why not? Is your present situation dictating to you that you can’t be any of these things?
Bottom line is, as a believer you have God’s DNA in you so you can succeed at the things He has called you to do in spite of your present state. He wants to achieve greatness through you, yes you, but you can limit him by your small thinking.
BREAK OUT FROM THE BOX, START LIVING WITHOUT LIMITS!
Have a FANTASTIC FRIDAY!
Philippians 4:13 and Psalm 78:40-41.
Look at the areas where you have placed limitations in your life and begin to break the boundaries and command those walls to fall. Make bold declarations about how you see yourself through the mirror of God’s word today.
